Samsung Galaxy A5 and A5 Duos review: Five star

30 January 2015
Samsung's newly found love for “premium build” is spilling down the ranks and if the new A-series get half the love and attention the S-line has been getting, it will be a job well done. The Koreans are right to try and stir things up in the midrange...

A5 is a good phone. Got this in 2014 and still using it. Tough battery, my kids are using it to watch youtube videos. Not for high end gaming though but good for browsing, music and Netflix.

Can still shoot clear pics and videos in good lighting.

Still using it today and works well. Battery still lasts one day with my usage (I don't play games on the phone) and performances are still more than acceptable.

The second sim slot in my Samsung A5 is not closing well and the sum does not reflect in my phone. Please how do I solve this problem

  • SUZE

Don't bother with the Samsung Galaxy A5! I have had massive issues with this pos. I am very disappointed in it. I have already sent it back to factory once and now I am needing to do it again. It freezes, crashes, batter drains, muffled sound, over heats with a non removable battery. Just because a sales person tells you it's amazing (which I sadly fell for,) I suggest that you all look at more reviews and a5 issues/problems with it before buying.
