Each of these has a metal body, however unlike the rest Samsung’s metal collection such as the Galaxy Alpha and Note 4, A3 and A5 are both entry level smartphones that Samsung hopes may be more budget friendly and elegant than its current crop of affordable smartphones. 

As mentioned, Samsung has not yet revealed the actual pricing of each handset, both of this smartphones have a decent spec as mentioned earlier it’s a entry level smartphones so obviously all of us would not be surprised if they ended up costing around in the region of £150-250 with free SIM. Comparing the displays the A3 have a smaller display with a 4.5inch 960x540 resolutions while the A5 have a 5inch 1280x720 resolution display and each handset have the Samsung Super AMOLED panels, so expect the color accuracy is probably high.

Is it true? Xiaomi developing its own OS?

There’s a rumor that the Chinese smartphone manufacturer Xiaomi is creating their own
operating system for mobile, the MiOS are developed by Xiaomi for the replacement of the current Firefox OS, which experts explained that might mean Xiaomi is striving to get rid of the dominance of Google’s Android OS for cheap smartphones (I guess this is a war for smartphone OS), that is based on blog.sina.com.cn

ALSO CHECK: Xiaomi Redmi Note

However, Xiaomi released a smartphones that runs with Android program in India have outperformed other mobile phones that is using same program, bringing up issues about whether it is clever for Xiaomi to release its own OS for cheap smartphones. Xiaomi’s assumed purpose of releasing its own operating system appears more like a promotional trick, (and I’m hoping not). Maybe Xiaomi wants to release OS to build their own smartphone ecosystem.

Xiaomi provide its own smartphones and has appreciated by many users and also enjoy their sales number in just a short time. However the Samsung World’s number 1 seller of smartphone failed to market its Bada and Tizen OS. This signifies that device manufactures may not be capable to do well in developing their own software and smartphone ecosystem.

But who knows, maybe if this alleged MiOS is true and be released, people easily adopt it as long as the OS is user friendly that thing must be consider.
