Samsung’s Galaxy A series is positioned as the next best thing to the flagship Galaxy S series. The idea here is to provide an almost top-level experience, which encompasses the feel of the device, features, and of course performance, but at a price that more people can stomach. So far, the company has done a good job of maintaining this balance, and now, it’s time to take the 2017 editions of the Galaxy A7 and Galaxy A5 for a spin.

Samsung Galaxy A5 (2017) Summary

The Samsung Galaxy A5 (2017) is built using aluminium and glass which makes it feel very premium. Its 5.2-inch display size makes it comfortable to use. The Super Amoled display produces good colours and brightness. The fingerprint sensor works well and buttons have good feedback. The Exynos 7880 provides decent power for the UI and most apps although heavy games don’t always run smoothly. The 16-megapixel rear sensor has slow focus and lacks good detail in landscapes and macros. It lacks 4K video recording too. Battery life is good as we managed to get a full day’s worth of regular use.

  • I thing is prefect
    Erset Dani (Oct 16, 2017) on Gadgets 360 Recommends
    This phone is 90% perfect cuz nothing is not perfect.. The camera in outdors is awesome really good. And about the selfie is very good when you are nearly about 30 cm from the camera...is with blury when you are with 4 or more friends and this is for me only bad thing for this phone. According to the performance is really good with the nougat update is really awesome cuz has 8.1 experience who mis in the s7 or s7 edge and is faster than marshmallow...has faster fingerprint than any samsung phone before. For me is really awesome phone .

  • Gorilla glass broken in first time fell down. There gorilla glass is scratch proof. Not unbreakable. Fooling people. Bad
    Hemanth Suvarna (May 27, 2017) on Gadgets 360
    I purchased Samsung A7 2017 mobile in the month of April. Sales man told me it's a gorilla glass. I like gorilla glass because it's unbreakable. So I was thinking that it's unbreakable. So that I didn't use protection for that. After 1 month it fell down by my hands & broken the glass. So I went to the Samsung gallery. They told me that gorilla glass is scratch proof not unbreakable & there is no warranty on glass.I was shocked.they ask me to pay 13000 Rs to repair it. So please don't buy this mobile. It's not a gorilla glass it's a normal glass. They are fooling the people.

  • Awesome mobile. No heating or hanging issues
    Chandrashekar Shetty (Aug 23, 2017) on Amazon
    Awesome mobile. No heating or hanging issues. Very nice to hold. display and overall looks is marvellous. No more chinese mobiles here onCamera quality is very good and very fast as well. No flaws yet. 64gb n 4gb would b my expectations. But I don't see any lag or performance issue with heavy games n multi tasking as of now. Good one
