Very happy with Samsung A5 and service from AO

This is a great replacement to my Galaxy S6. Not sure there is much difference between them, really. A little heavier, but I like that weight, actually. Good screen clarity and all pretty intuitive. I lost a few contacts in the transfer over between phones - my fault or the phone, I don't know, as they are on the old (attached to an email address) but just didn't come over. I purchased separately a 64GB micro SD card, to assist with the storage of data that one seems to need these days. All works well. Only pain - C charge cable. Meant buying extra for the car and other charging points. I had not realised!
