Samsung Galaxy A5 (2016) Summary

The Samsung Galaxy A5 (2016) takes the style quotient up a notch with curved Gorilla Glass on the front and back of its metal body. The new Galaxy A5 is very well built and easy to grip. The full-HD display produces sharp and vivid pictures making it ideal for watching movies on-the-go. The processor easily manages apps and games, although the 2GB RAM does sometimes feel like a constraint for multitasking. Camera quality is pretty good despite the slow focus speeds and oddly designed camera app. Battery life is another area where the A5 really excels and you also get fast charging to boot. The launch price of the phone makes it a tough sell but if Samsung corrects this soon, it could be a very good buy at around Rs. 20,000.

  • Product display compaint
    Nobin Babu E (Jul 13, 2016) on Gadgets 360
    I have purchased this device 4 months back and now some green line and pink patches appearing on the screen. Service center people has rejected warranty saying its display complaint. Not even a scratch on the screen and they say it user problem. So buy the device as a use and throw basis, they wont give any warranty.

  • Great phone!!
    Pradeep Kumar (Oct 9, 2016) on Gadgets 360 Recommends
    I bought this today from a nearest retailer. Have used this whole day no issues apart from the selfie camera which i thought was just not good enough. But when i just changed the setting to full HD from HD it was really amazing. Also if you guys want to buy a classy look phone with good price. You can go for it but let me tell you i am not a heavy gamer so not sure abt that part. Battery back up is great. The speakers are at the bottom so if your phn is lying on bed then also you would be able to hear the ring easily ˜
