Premium Design

Galaxy A5 premium design

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.

Two top cameras

Galaxy A5 cameras

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

It may be an affordable mid-range handset, but Samsung have still equipped this smartphone with some serious power. Behind the scenes, this device hides an Exynos octa-core processor and 3GB RAM to make multi-tasking or next-gen games run with ease.

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.

Miss a lot from the Lumia 950 with windows 10. Widgets etc just don't seem to give as rewarding a user experience as the live tiles etc.

Having said that I am getting used to it now and really do like it.

Bought through 2 year contract for my son's 18th birthday. He loves it. Great size screen and better battery life than his iphone. Recommended.

Went from an s4 mini to this so it was always going to be great in comparison. Does everything I need it to and most likely more. So far everything about it is good and the battery lasts a day or so with fairly heavy use.

Couldn't say! Unused. Phone sold as unlocked but wasn't. EE says can't be unlocked for 6 months! Stuck with it!

I am very pleased with the A5. Samsung for me every time these days. They pack so much in and way better pricing than the IPhone range.
