Bringing a premium feel to this mid-range device, the Samsung Galaxy A5 (2017) sports a stylish metal frame and glass black panel. As well as dazzling looks, the handset is also IP68 water and dust resistant, meaning it can survive depths of 1 meter for up to 30 minutes.

Elsewhere on the device is a home button that doubles up as fingerprint scanner, meaning your sensitive content is well and truly protected. There’s also a micro SD slot that lets you boost the existing 32GB on-board storage by a massive extra 256GB.

Always on display

Whether you’re watching films, playing games, or just browsing the web, you can enjoy pin-sharp images and crystal-clear text on the A5’s full HD display. This 5.2 inch screen offers true-life colours and flawless contrast, as well as a great views even at an angle.

The screen has an extra trick up its sleeve, in the form of an always-on display. This means that even when the device is sleeping, you’ll see a low-light view of the time and date, as well as incoming notifications, all without draining your battery.

The Samsung Galaxy A5 (2017) is equipped with not one, but two 16 megapixel cameras, meaning you’ll be snapping quality photos, whichever way you’re shooting. Both cameras also feature an f/1.9 aperture, allowing more light into every shot for clearer photos.

The rear facing lens benefits from phase-detection autofocus and an LED flash, which offer impressive results with minimum effort. The front-facing camera is equipped with an intelligent floating shutter button, which makes easy work of selfies at any angle.

Power when it counts

With a long-lasting 3000mAh battery on board, you’ll also be sure of having enough juice to get you through the day. If an emergency top-up is required however, the fast-charging function will have you ready to go in double-quick time.
