Android Operating System 2.3 ( Ginger Bread ) , 650 MHz  Processor, It won’t be wrong to say that, Qmobile has taken the lead in the market, where this Android set is compared with HTC Explorer which has similar specification, fit’s somewhere in a slot right next to HTC Wildfire S but since A5 has 3.75 Screen Size, it’s one of the unique android dual sim hand set available in market. I been personally using it since almost 2 weeks, My previous phone experience been Nokia Symbian 5th Generation phones, this time I switched to Android, didn’t took me too long to understand this handset due to Android OS is very friendly, A5 has 5MP camera, with LED Flash, previous A2 had smaller display and 3 MP camera, minor changes made A5 in a low-budget one of the best Android Phone.

I been reading about phone users asking one particular question ” Skype Video Conference ” works on it or not ? well the answer is no, it doesn’t support , all thou it has front VGA camera, Price range is around 11,500 Pakistani Rupees which is around 120 US dollars, not bad at all, specially when it comes to branded company handset, while I was in a market looking for other Android sets unable to decide “one of the fellow said ” A5 is not less than HTC or any other, all those are 7000 to 10,000 thousand expensive than this one, just because they are Branded Company Tagged, thou Phones like Cha Cha / Explorer / Wildfire and Wildfire S comes with no warranty, this one has and just if one doesn’t see the Qmobile tag behind won’t able to notice any difference. I didn’t went for HTC at all and thought about giving a try to Qmobile Noir A5, which really been an amazing experience.

CONS :  Internal Memory Low Issue

It’s the  ( Same like HTC Explorer / Wildfire ) , you can force move apps using SDK manager, same like Explorer and Wildfire users does, without rooting the phone. Apps2SD works fine but some apps are stored in internal phone memory most of them can be forced move by little trick so, don’t get confused at all, when you buy this phone you’ll get 4GB mirsoSD but get 8 or 16GB once you got that, no need to make partitions and technical gambling stuff, simply install Apps2SD from Google Play Store it’s for free and beside it SDK manager install on your PC connect the phone with USB ( Debugging Mode ) some commands and that will resolve 70 percent of your issue.


Since the phone is already using dual network, got GPS , WiFi which works perfectly fine, it sucks the battery like any other Android Phone, so when WiFi , Bluetooth , GPS not in use, turn them off, it’s easy just a click away. When using WiFi or Internet Battery lasts 4 to 5 hours max, than you need to recharge it. so, better than the feature off when not in use !  I don’t find this a big issue because use car charger too.


The Quality of the camera 5MP is good but not the best, I don’t know why most the low-budget android phones don’t have good camera result, but I was reading on the net, Camera features : (Not Available) ! No there are features in Camera all which user needed and also for the video recording which is not bad at all.

apart from these 3 issues , I didn’t find anything wrong with this phone comparing. So far I am using this android phone for internet purpose, GPS and Google Map works fine, there are other  apps and Pakistan Maps available which you can download.

Samsung and HTC has the phones with same specification but the screen size isn’t BIG as this one in this range as well as Very Smart Looks makes it more appealing. Get a good Handfree for Mp3 or if you want to enjoy music, Charger connects with USB cable, you can charge the phone by connect with PC,  rest Android gives you the ultimate experience in this friendly budget range !

You Can use Moborobo Suit download that one, works fine with this, thou it’s for HTC ” I Think ” but has many options and features. Connectivity Android made the most easiest way, switch phone Remote mode

will give you FTP address type in My computer address bar and get connected transfer files ( up or download ) easily. without connecting via USB or Bluetooth.

My Personal suggestion if you are looking for a Good Phone in this Range ( 11,500 ) I would suggest you, buy this one or secondary option is Qmobile A2 3.5 Inches display screen size, 3MP camera rest is all same. wait till the technology gets cheaper and better, hopefully  expected  QMobile A3 will be launched in August 2012, which would be 3.5 inches display , 3MP but will support Skype Video Conference, since I don’t need that feature at this time, I am fine with the one I have.

If you have any questions regarding QMobile Noir A5 you can leave a comment here, email me at farhan.imaan@gmail.com or tweet me @farhan_imaan , I’ll help you out as much as possible rest, Internet and Android users are way smarter me !

Keep Smiling and Enjoy life

    1. Search How to Root Android 2.3 Ginger Bread , A5 or any other Android phone has same OS so, Rooting method would be same :) there are videos on youtube too and force apps moving to SD ,

      1. I haven’t rooted the phone , right now i am over viewing A2”s Review which has TV OUT feature tested working i will post when i will root step by step alright :)

  1. Dear Farhan,

    Thanks for such a comprehensive review of your phone. Still, one questions remains unanswered, “How much is the RAM of this smartphone??”

    I am a consistent gamer during my leisure time so, I am very keen to have this phone if it asserts a good amount of RAM.

    Sincerely hoping for a satisfying response,

    1. RAM is 256MB , compared to wildfire or explorer which has 256 MB. Since, i am not a gamer i am using GPS easily social network , multimedia it’s working fine if you are gamer than i would suggest you HTC wildfire s which has 512MB :)

  2. Dear Farhan Imaan,

    Thanks for so valuable comments/reviews about Noir A5 to decide for purchasing! Please can you provide the VIDEO as you stated in the above blog? Advance thanks for VIDEO. My Emai ID is tnwhussain@gmail.com.

    1. What exactly you want to see A5 , its on youtube various videos you want me to give you demo of the phone ? or specific something let me know

      1. Dear Farhan,
        I need a complete functional demo of all the features of A5 as on YouTube nothing is clear as well as official launched A5 VIDEO is substandard in viewing.

      2. let me record n link it chk it tomorrow i will give u demo as well as GPS works on it very well without net sygic entire pakistan ok inshallah will record and upload on youtube :)

      3. Thanks Dear for a clear Demo!
        Can you clear also that MS Office(Word,Excel,Power Point,PDF etc) are working on it with EDITING mode as in many Nokia Symbian phones like 701 it is not in editing mode.

      4. sure ill check n upload it ! tomorrow ok , hope your concept of android A5 must be clear now , don’t compare with nokia any android phone they are way smarter and advance !

  3. Yes. Thanks a lot for Video! Basically I was conscious about the touch quality as many such brand phones like voice/q mobile touch systems work some time then go wrong while well famous brands touch systems always remains GOOD in working!
    Moreover being a Technology lover, I use MS Office/Web browsing/FB etc. Also sometime Camera/Videos etc use. Also I have been a user of IPhone 3GS & Nokia 701 (Symbian Belle) but due to some financial issues had to sale them & now need once again a phone like those & I think A5 will give me a TASTE near to both sets I have used.
    Moreover I need this set. Can you help me to get1 in cheep price as in market it is 10500!!!

    1. if you are already user and wants to use all features than i personally would suggest you Wildfire which is around 16 i think not sure or samsung S1 it comes from malaysia slight used around 18 – internal memory 16GB and touch quality camera SD optional extend 32 GB processor 1,2GHZ 1Giga RAM its better for you, S1 without warranty, or new box pack wildfire . tried calling but engaged and not picking i would suggest you S1 or wildfire not this

      1. Dear this time it is hard to arrange 10K so I think A5 with some less price will be better! When some money comes in my pocket (INSHALLAH), I will go towards ZTE Mimosa X or Motorola Droid Razr Maxx. So try to get a low priced A5 for me. Thanks.

  4. Dear Farhan
    Help me to buy a pin pack with some cheep price as in market it is 10,500. Also guide me that MS office is working in it or not?

    1. your getting in good price 10.5k but i would advise you to get 4GB SD card exchanged with 8 GB, because I am thinking to get 16GB card for this , beside yes office works fine I am using KINGS OFFICE aap directly to SD connected with Cloud – BOX.net where I keep my documents .

  5. Thanks Dear. When I get this1 then will be in touch in case any technical guidelines from you. INSHALLAH. See you later.
    Moreover some people are making misguided others by putting these comments that other CHINA Android based sets are good & cheaper at Hallroad & advising people not to buy Qmobile Noir A5. What you say as I am not belieiving on those.

    1. Do as your heart says I am not doing marketing of the phone dear, I just given the review of the product which I am using it is cheaper than other branded sets rest the choice is yours :)

  6. nice to see your blog i need to ask something about this phone . if you know any video on how to Root this phone kindly share the link as i want to root my phone . second also share link of pakistan maps for google and if you know any method of moving and downloading apps to SD directly do share also :)

    1. sure i will post the links which will guide you step by step how to root , because different phones have different methods ,
      2ndly , I don’t use Google maps , I am using Sygic and i will post the APK file than download from site Entire Pakistan Map is in it along with Voice Navigation .

    1. Dear the cheapest one would S-1 Samsung new are not coming but Abroad used is around 21 k 16 gb built in + sc card option + Its Original Samsung supports Video calling if you want you can contact me. unused pieace I can get you .

  7. HI farhan,
    It is a nice tutorial. I want to ask about the touch? Is it Fine like HTC explorer? And also If you had use Samsung Galaxy Y, the menu and quality of screen is not good.Is there any problem like this in this phone? And also I want to hear your experience,What will you recommend? HTC explorer (12,000RS) or Qmobile A5(10,500RS) ?? Please reply thanks

  8. Hi,buddy i am frm LHR.
    mujhe bohat sare functions wala smartPhone chahiye!
    mane qmobileNoirA5 or htcExplorer select kia hai kon sa zyada best hai?(meri range less then 13000 hai)
    Reply fast

  9. Hi,

    Mate, really liked you blog and the indepth info. you shared regarding the Qmobile’s Noir A5. Also liked you video review of the product. I wanted to ask you as I have read this in some of the other reviews that the Google Market dosen’t work or dosen’t work properly in this smartphone, reason being Google Market has problem recognizing these type of sets because of being a specific type of Processor…. . Can you please check this out and shed some light on this, please.

    Also I read somewhere that the RAM in the set is 156MB can you please confirm the actual.

    How has your Noir A5 been working uptill now? Any other performance limitations / glitches that you might have came to know of.

    Any other plus points? :)

    Thx, look forward to your expert feed back!!


    1. I want to add something here like its plus and minuses and how to overcome the problem of minimal RAM:
      Plus: Large capacitive touchscreen, Enough good processor, gyro and proximity work really fine.
      Minuses: RAM bit too low 150+ (Shown by system in application manager) but 212 (Shown by the apps installed later), Camera bit sluggish especially when using its flash.

      RAM could have worked pretty fine but some apps generate themselves without the permission and give extra load to the RAM.

      I am using this mobile and here is my advice for competing the low sized RAM. First you need to switch off the working of Android Booster from its settings and don’t use third party widgets as they put extra load on the RAM.

      Now, install two apps. from Play Store, first is Advanced Task Killer and second is System Tuner.

      In the settings of Advanced task killer, check mark the apps you don’t want to play in background like Firewall, Facebook, Yahoo etc.
      Keep the widget of the Advance task killer on your home screen with which you can kill programs in one touch.

      In the System Tuner, “Include” the apps you don’t want to see running in background. And in Settings>Auto Kill option check mark “Screen is turned off” and “Device is low on memory”.
      Now you can enjoy a lot more smoother and quicker Noir A5 becuase there would be free RAM of about 50MB plus.

      Have a great day….

    2. Dear Mobin ,
      Google Play Store works, perfectly fine, nothing to worry about even I downloaded Yahoo Plug In for video calling it’s working fine. Yes the Internal memory is 156 but RAM is 256 , for that I am working on partitioning SD micro and share the internal usage, trust me I need friends those who are using android advise too, beside it A5 is doing hell of a job, I keep updating kindly read A5 Video Calling article rest of the details are there and share your views too ,


      Farhan Imaan

    1. Dear Shakir,
      Don’t compare A5 with explorer because A5 is lot better than explorer, internet works fine as you can watch movies and live TV on Qmobile Noir A5 and A2 , so there is no issue with Internet. ( Wifi )

  10. hi.
    i am thinking to by noir a5, but im a bit confused as i have heard that it hangs frequently. i am currently using qmobile e900, nd it doesnt hang i have no problem. but im a bit confused after reading people review about noir a5

    1. Dear Iman,
      E900 and Noir A5 has a biggest difference, one is Java phone and other one is Android, Noir A5 is totally different experience and the best for Internet usage. don’t be confused It is one of the best cell phone by Qmobile I am not doing marketing :)

      God Bless you

      Regards ,

  11. Dear Farees, Please post the procedure for gaining root access on QMobile A5 Noir. Internal Memory and RAM is toooooo low:(

  12. Thanks Farhan for your rearlier reply to my message.

    Had a few more questions if you could answer.

    Q mobile Noir A5:
    * What is the current price of this mobile?
    * Is this mobile (OS) upgradable to Android Ice-cream Sandwich or Android Jelly bean? does the handset support this?
    * Similarly, battery life is also considered short. Is there any other better battery with longer time available for the product?
    * Can we edit file for MS Word, Excel and Powerpoint? (Edit Mode)
    * Can we create (new) .doc, .docx, .xls, .xlsx, .ppt, .pptx documents on the phone?
    * What is the Processor Type: ARMv6 or ARMv7 ? Is it CORTEX or MIPS?
    * Does it support Flash

    I know you have also mentioned this a number of times that you are not Marketing for Q mobile but sill thought I ask as I believe you have a pretty good know-how on the market any, inside scoop/speculation on the following:

    * Is there any new version of Noir A5 coming up? and when?
    * Any new advanced product launching soon?(Android based) and around when?

    Thanks again, have a great Day!!!

    1. It downloads same as pc, if there is an option of downloading after 5 seconds than it will wait and prompt since the bavkend is not A2 or. A5 but depends on site, beside it remember phones depend on OS, internal memory rest android works same as pc.

  15. U said that a new cell wud be launched in August 2012 that is A3 which will support video chat on skype.. when is that cuming?

    1. A3 is coming later this month but the specification of the phone is lower than A2 , since they have updated A2 with 1Ghz processor and 256 / 512 ROM .

      1. U said that A5 battery time is very less. so do u sugest that shud I go for A5, A2 or A3… A2 doesnt has gps system.. wat abut A3 any idea…

      2. Dear Faizan,
        I have also mentioned how to save battery, right now I am using A5 and I turn off GPS, WIFI GPRS, BRIGHTNESS ETC.. when not in use especially wifi and gps use more battery so if you turn them off when not in use you will save battery efficiently.

        Farhan Imaan

    2. I was told by the sells person at Qmobile Main Whole Sale shop, there’s a possibility that A2 now coming with 1 Ghz as some visitors told me could be the one in the same price, by changing the processor speed CPU Speed. rest I’ll confirm than post you back

  16. Assalam-o-Alaikum.
    dear Farhan very give review I am using galaxy y dual sim I have low memory problem on it how could I get rid of this problem.

    Farhan Bhai

    mery pass Q, A5 hai mey ny Nokia ( BH-105) ka Bluetooth us k sath attach kia or woh bhi gaya magar mobile bluetooth ko voice transfer nahi kar raha.
    plz guide karen

  18. Hello sir

    Can u please provide a bit more details about the battery life and the normal performance

    from battery life, i mean normal use with no wifi, GPRS, GPS etc, is this phone good as far as battery is concerned ? how long the battery can survive ?

    Same for performance, just provide details of normal use performance, is this mobile slow ? Can it play games like angry birds at correct speeds or very low framerate ?

      1. also sent me email related to batery… thnx..

        u wer tellin that new A2 has low internal memory.. cant we download apps on external memory is it necesary tht we instal it on internal memory.. plz guide me abut it

      2. There are many apps which only gets stored and work properly in the internal memory , due to low memory not on A2 or Noir A5 but many other branded expensive sets faces the same issue, even we move apps to SD memory 25% of it is left in the internal memory which i have noticed while moving apps to SD , when it is downloaded For eg :- its 5 MB app when moved to SD it turns 3.7 MB means 1.3 MB remained somewhere in internal memory. this is why even those apps which are for external storage fills the internal storage and makes phone jammed unable to function properly, unfortunately we are still in initial stages of Android which is competing windows OS with very efficient progress, if I compare with Java Symbian based phones androids are far behind that’s is why Iphone and Nokia are still leading, Android is progressing fast hopefully in upcoming 6 months we’ll see many changes and hopefully upgrading procedure, meanwhile we just have ROOTING the only possibility which been unsuccessful by me on A2 and Noir A5 . after which SD Partitioning could make a possibility to extend internal storage by linking it with SD, but yet not been done.

  28. Hello dear one..!!
    i just wanna ask about the light sensor at the front..i saw at the unboxing on youtube it was blinking but in video he said it was the GPS light!Could you tell me what it actually is and how to make it work..??Thanks in advance

    1. Dear Zaid,

      The sensor which you seen was blinking in the video was the GPS sensor but in actual it doesn’t blink since it’s infra red only visible in camera lens , how it works well in a short way of exampling is , this GPS module detects the location the nearest transponder and receiver Provided by Network just as mobile phone gives signals when it’s in the range of Transponder Receiver also you call it antenna since they are place on distance from one to another, GPS detects and measure distance location range. usually when you will see any phone it will not blink now with with-in this one sensor there are multiple, int TYPE_ACCELEROMETER A constant describing an accelerometer sensor type.
      A constant describing all sensor types.
      1. TYPE_AMBIENT_TEMPERATURE A constant describing an ambient temperature sensor type
      2.TYPE_GRAVITY A constant describing a gravity sensor type.
      3.GYROSCOPE A constant describing a gyroscope sensor type
      4. LIGHT A constant describing a light sensor type.
      5. LINEAR ACCELERATION A constant describing a linear acceleration sensor type.
      6. MAGNETIC_FIELD A constant describing a magnetic field sensor type.
      7. ORIENTATION This constant is deprecated. use SensorManage ( gathers info from all sensors)
      8. PRESSURE A constant describing a pressure sensor type
      9. PROXIMITY A constant describing a proximity sensor type.
      10. RELATIVE HUMIDITY A constant describing a relative humidity sensor type.
      11. ROTATION VECTOR A constant describing a rotation vector sensor type.
      11. TEMPERATURE Sensor, This constant is Together they are known as AMBIENT TEMPERATURE instead. all the sensors works on the basic physics law.

      Like in the computer exchange protocols with the network and data packets sends and receive same way these sensors work with the Transponders, constantly exchange of data makes it easier for the phone to know location , weather, rotation , gravity , etc.. I hope you have understood as I tried to explain in simple way rather than entire post like a blog.

  29. Hello once again..!!
    Can u please tell me how to use sdk manager??u mentioned above that i can copy most of the files on sdcard through apps2sd i tried but nothing doing please guide me..!!Thanks in advance..:)

    1. SDK Manager is a developer’s kit, moving files apps to SD is the application like Move2SD or Android Assistant SDK plays the part when you are upgrading phone, Rooting etc.. else it is not for normal users.

    But bro the problem is, as I wrote before that, I downloaded an app for quran that didnt install on my phone but taken a huge space on my phone;s internal memory.From where I can access my phone internal memory. THE QUESTION IS HOW TO FREE THAT OCCUPIED MEMORY?. i CANT SEE THAT APP ON MY PHONE;S INSTALLED APPS SO WHAT SHOULD I DO NOW?

    1. rest to factory setting , move AURA folder to pc for sygic factory reset than do not install anti virus you will have to clean all to make it proper, kindly do not install apps which u do not use.

  36. hi,
    i got the internal memory full error so i reset the factory data as u mentioned to someone above. but now the problem is that i am unable to open few specific web sites specially google is not getting open.
    as i type google.com in the default browser it does not browse.
    what could be the reason for this….. can u help me out?

  37. the problem has diversified now… i have come to know that weather update, as well as map is also not working…… server failled error is generated….. i am only able to open yahoo website properly other few sites are creating problems.
    data connectivity error is shown while opening the maps.

    TO REMIND YOU….. IS SELECTED FACTORY DATA RESET OPTION….. path is settings>applications>privacy>factory data reset

    1. Weather update is not working you can download widget its with me same, rest if your phone constantly giving you error I would suggest you to take it to customer service center qmobile guys will reset firmware which I think has some bug.

  38. I am From Rawalpindi….. And what to do with the other issue….. web sites, maps, and few other things not working after factory data reset…. i hav reset the set and put it off for 10 mins several times, but its not working properly yet

  39. Please guide me as to how can I root my Q Mobile A5 set safely. I am an A5 lover and don’t want my friends ti point a finger at its internal memory problem. Thanks

    1. There is no way to ROOT Qmobiles yet. I am using A5 too with around 40 apps with 16 GB card / GPS Pakistan Map in it voice guidance and I have no issue of Internal memory yes it is slower than A2 otherwise A2 is not even close to the graphics and Camera Screen size resolution of A5.

      1. Thanks for your guidance. Please give the list of 40 applications you are using so that I can do the same. How much does the 16 GB card cost? How will I transfer the apolications installed on my present card to the new card? Gallery and weather functions are also not working , please help. Any news about A8. Thanks

    1. any pc suit will connect one usb driver is connected properly, download from qmobile site usb driver, than search for android pc suits , mostly are universal there are others too I am not remembering name else i would have told you but other pc suits work better than qmobile’s one.

      A2 , Faster processor , Skype video supportive
      A5 , GPS , Screen Resolution its HQ , Screen Size is bigger , Video supports yahoo and Fring, Good Camera 5MP.

  46. is there any way i can change a5’s keypad from qwerty to alphanumeric.. there is an option in samsung mobiles is there one in qmobile, and does this mobile suport swipe method of texting?

    1. I am sorry bt ur reply dosnot resolve my querry, please tell me k how is the camera reault at night does flash work properly.. I am using a2 at the moment.. Awesome phone no doubt but the camera quality us worst.. So i just want to confirm the rests quality before making any further purchases… :)

      1. If you are talking about A8 than I have posted 2 images cause i been busy on Facebook Page Caring is Sharing where all are Discussing about mobiles and specially A8 , click on the right menu or search Sharing is Caring see the Result Day time and News cutting with flash

      2. Its Fine not as 5 MP should be , its more like 3 MP good in day time till evening night specially with flash they aren’t clear as u compare with nokia or sony Ericsson

      1. and i will really appreciate it if u told me that how is a5’s and a8’s camera result at night, to be specific i am asking about the efficiency of the camera flash…

      2. There is a hell of a difference in A5 ( 5 MP ) and A8 ( 5MP ) Not only in Result but A8 has Smart Auto Focusing even it can take Macro like Newspapers fonts clear and easily.

      3. thnx, can u name the app that i need to purchase… and would u please tell me that should i go for galaxy y or a5 from gaming point of view??

      4. For Gaming I won’t prefer you Noir A5 , But Noir A8 is way better than Galaxy y, It’s more like S-II just Internal Memory Difference. Check the Qmobile Noir A8 Specifications you will know and the Technical information post. I am sure it would be helpful for you to decide Why it’s better than Galaxy series

  47. Hi Faree,

    My problem is that when i get logged in on fb through my A5, it does not appear in the chat of my friends, mean thier chat shows that i am offline. However i get their msgs.

    1. I am sure you have updated facebook , uninstall it – reboot the phone and update it again. I had the same issue in A5 got resolved, beside it there is a facebook messenger app available which is better than going in FB and chatting, directly chat as Gtalk or SMS

  48. AOA kasie ho bro thnks for helping …. did u found how to roor a5 ?
    i bought a5 but having 2 prblms 1: battry 2: rooting plz give me response and help me thnks i’ll w8

    1. Dear Taabi,

      Thanks first of all, well about weather if u constantly keep pressing it and option will appear below DELETE, so slide it to Delete and remove it from the screen, My A5 also had this issue nothing to worry. after you deleted it from the main screen Go to play store and search weather widget 3D weather u will see install it, after installing , on the main screen press menu > Add > Widget from the list choose 3D weather which u just installed, it will show rows and column press ok, than add City in it and Time to update like 60 mins , Enjoy the Weather Widget on main screen.

      About the apps,

      1. Yahoo plug ins ( if u are yahoo users ) for video chat
      2. MX player with ARMv6 Codec and VPF codec ok
      3. Keep safe , to keep ur personal images safe
      4. Move2SD to move apps in SD card.

      Kindly Do not Update Facebook Gmail they work fine as they are , your phone will get slow and occupy space for no season, yes if u are twitter users update it Must,

      Keep in mind that u have to keep 50 MP + free to use phone smoothly ,

      Must app is ( Android Assistant ) install it but dont move it to SD and I am sure you will understand the features it is ,

  54. Hello boss,
    I do have this problem of unable to use my camera flashlight as a torch.
    A friend of mine has the same Noir A5 and he has downloaded an app from Google play with the name “TORCH” and its working fine as a genuine torch but in my my case its other way around.
    i downloaded almost all the led flashlight app but none of them worked
    can u help



    1. I used torch when i had A5 worked fine, there is no issue previously reported nor i had any. Its simple app which turns led on i dont know why yours is not working

      1. Boss,
        do you mind sharing specific google play app that i could use to operate camera flashlight as torch?


  55. Nice review. I have used HTC Wildfire and Explorer before. Android is addictive. I got myself an A5 Noir two days back. It is good value for money. But the battery life is really disappointing. It barely lasts 24 hours and I am not a heavy cell phone user. What could be done about this? I do not use GPS, GPRS or even WiFi that frequently.

    1. use mid brightness level, keep GPRS WIFI GPS off it will give u good timing = A5 has this issue of Batter now A8 has improved timing ( I think you better go to market to get some other company battery ) other made
