Good phone

anzar277 has owned it for more than one year before publishing this review

It's a good phone very stylish and slim to hold with metal body and feels so rich while holding. But was not that worth the money that time. Features are high end features that is 1.6ghz Snap dragon processor with 2gb RAM but too much lag.

The phone is good at all. Metal frame, good cameras, fast and slim. The software is easy to use. The battery drains very fast with always turned on 4G Mobile data. Some videos are not supported. six colours to choose. I have got it from 2015. Good price 750 BGN (~350 EUR)

Not good option

ashvsharma has owned it for less than year before publishing this review

Camera is good for specially 13MP+ camera from Samsung are awesome. Reasons for good camera is they have enabled beauty mode default specially for selfie.
Another good options are in market. I do not recommend to buy this phone. Too expensive launch. Too late update for lollipop and that was frustrating to almost all users. Never expect from Samsung latest update of software.

Amazing Phone

Shrivaan has owned it for less than 3 months before publishing this review

An amazing phone with great features. Games run smooth and picture quality is great. It has a premium feel to it but at half the price! I highly recommend this phone.
Comes with 5 built in themes but you can download more.
The only problem is the absence of an LED notification light.

Galaxy A5 A New Revolution For Capturing Better Selfies

shalini07 has owned it for less than month before publishing this review

The overall Samsung Galaxy A5 review tells about the Super AMOLED display with high reliability with great contrast and punchy colors. One of the standout features of the Galaxy A5 is its camera. The 13-megapixel sensor is identical to those found in select flagships over the past few years, For more detailed features you can refer Samsung India site official features.
