Bought this phone 5 days ago and everything works fine .. sound as many here have suggested that's a weak point no its not .. though i still cant get used to the camera .. the photos i took of myself are the worst i fucking hate em front and back .. i dont really know whats the problem, is it me still not getting used to it or the camera is really bad. Weird thing they come out like they are being proceed with some cartooned effect. Otherwise other pictures are extremely good. Is there anything i can do about it ? Also is Samsung Galaxy S5 case works on NEO? Thanks
I am reading all these posts about blurry photos.I would say this.The camera of S5 Neo is very good,not excellent but very good.But...whoever designed the camera drivers made a huge mistake.I guess he had no idea of photography.On one hand they have almost no "Scenes".On the other hand,the HUGE mistake is that during low light conditions,the set the minimum exposure time to 1/17th of a second.This is impossible to hold your hand still.The best a normal user can hold still is,I believe 1/40th of a second.The same happens when using the flash.The camera behaves the same.This is A REAL FAILURE of Samsung.I have this problem and I guess all of you have it...but you still haven't realize it.I call all of you to send an email to your local Samsung branch about it in order to fix it with a minor update.Or else forget nice and stable pictures.If they wont release an update soon (or after upgrading to Andriod 6) I am going to sell it.
Super expensive for such weak phone, ugly design, cheap copy of S6.
S5 Plus will kill this freak in anyway...
For quite a while now i've been looking for a decent midrange phone to replace my 3 year old prestigio. I've been thinking about the new a3(2016) as i'd preffer a smaller phone. Then there was s5 mini, but it's not available anymore. Also z3 compact, but i've heard it's very fragile. My dad and my friend have the original s5 and highly recommend it, so i got interested in s5 neo, which is cheaper. I've read around the comments and its like you're talking about two different phones? One is an excellent phone but another one has problems with calling, picturing and music playback. Or is it different opinions about sammy? How to tell if the phone will work well? Where did you buy yours from?

Sony Xperia Z3 compact OR Samsung galaxy s5 neo .. Weatherproofness and the main thing CAMERA? front and back ? I know sony is 20 and Samsung 16 but in general is it sonys one better? Im getting a new phone and those are my options .. Which should I choose? As I said photography plays big role here. Is it true that sony breaks easy? Any comment of other characteristics will be of helpful. Thanks :)

The A5 will get software updates a bit longer because it´s a brand new phone but the past has shown that google only brings stability and security updates to their OS so you won´t see any new features through an update anyway.

AnonD-493419, 26 Jan 2016which phone is better, samsung galaxy s5 neo or samsung galaxy A5?
Which camera is better?You mean the 2014 A5 or 2016 A5? The S5 Neo is much better than the original A5.
But the new A5 is pretty much the same as the S5 Neo except that the S5 Neo is waterproof and the A5 has a fingerprint sensor which the S5 Neo does not. The battery is pretty much the same, A5 has slightly larger but also a bigger screen to power. Then the design is nicer with the A5. So depends if you prefer a fingerprint sensor or having a waterproof phone :D.
So, this is my oppinion after 2 months of using the S5 Neo.
Battery life is just good enough, i am using and using it over the day, my 4g always stays on and it lasts about 2 days
I could not say a lot of things about the camera but i borrowed it to a friend and she says that the selfies are cool and normal photos are great :D
About games, i'm not very into a lot of games but i can say that i played Dead Trigger 2 and No Limits but it didn't even heated up maybe just a lil bit.
I have 5.1.1 as the OS and i like it it's very cool and doesn't bug.
What i don't like at the OS is that i can't make folders anymore..i hope they do something with that if 6.0 comes on this phone.
No problems with the signal or wirelles (as of my country Romania)
The sound quality when you use the speaker it's not great but also not bad, but with my skullcandy earbuds it sounds very very good clear and the bass rolls :)
No problems with bluetooth location maps or with any messaging app.
It runs smooth, even though it has a micro-lag in the menu when you switch pages but that happens if you use the normal theme.
Charges quite fast with the phone's cord
As for the water resistant i used it on full rain and snow and didn't have a problem with it so far.
In the end..i am happy with my phone so far, if i run into anything i'll come back here and write.
Ps:sorry for my english:(
AnonD-493419, 26 Jan 2016which phone is better, samsung galaxy s5 neo or samsung galaxy A5? Which camera is better?this is better... a lot better ... its S :) i know that u are from balkan but rules of gsmarena :) and this is one of the best cameras on market :) also better battery life than a5

Which camera is better?
Aa, 16 Jan 2016Hey can somebody tell me if samsung s5 neo can take screenshots ? Yeah. To take a screen shortJust swap urban palm from right to left.
I like it because it has the same feature like the S5 mini in which the USB port is been coated so that the water can't enter. But, the upset part, the features is been reduced on S5 Neo. I would prefer S5 than this S5 Neo.
Check the video, S5 Neo has some disappointing features. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bH-cj6-ZDtw
