Rated 5 out of 5 by from Samsung Galaxy A5 2016 Sim Free A very well made phone, looks like a top of the range model. Value for money. The Battery last a long time, I work in a bad signal area, and I use only 2-3% all day, where before I would use up at least 25% I have had 2days without needing a charge, using text and some Internet! No problems using the Internet, no real lag. Well worth buying, especially if you are looking for a Mid-Range mobile phone :-)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great mid range phone The phone is fast, feature filled and easy to use. The expandable storage is a must and the phone is a much cheaper alternative to the top range smartphones with only minimal compromise in performance and design.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent phone, best I've owned. This phone is by far the best I've owned. I'm quiet a critic when it comes to phones and I cannot find any flaws to this one. Metal sides and glass front and back feels very premium and the battery life will easily last you a day, even with heavy 4G and music usage. I previously owned an iPhone 5s and this phone blows it out the water. Lightening fast and impressive battery life. Would recommend to anyone, I won't be buying any more I iphones after this.
