About Samsung Galaxy A5 (2017)

Summary

Where top-end smartphones are making new benchmarks every single day, mid-range devices compete with essential but key features. This is the market segment where value-for-money for the features present is of utmost importance. Samsung Galaxy A5 may just come out as the best product with leading functions and present itself as a complete package.

Samsung Galaxy A5 (2017): A Hot new Mid-Range phone with High-end Features

Mobile devices in rising economies are a hugely competitive segment. Both international and regional companies are chipping in to gain a strong foothold. Singapore is one such demanding market where affordability and high-end features matter a lot.

And this is just what the Samsung Galaxy A5 (2017) brings along. Just released on 13th January 2017, this mobile has both the hype and a huge array of winning features typical of Samsung. This model is an obvious serious contender in for the top spot in mid-ranging smartphones.

Design and Display

This new Samsung Galaxy A5 (2017) is difficult to differentiate from the higher end A7. It's smooth and polished curve mostly comes down to the 2.5D glass covering. Dimensions come in at 146.1 x 71.4 x 7.9 mm and weighing in at only 157 grams, this is an exceptionally compact and ingenious design for a smartphone.

A5 borrows a few features from A7 which include a fingerprint sensor right on the home button. Camera bump at the back is minimal making a smooth, confident grip even with the all-around curved edges. Also, this Samsung Galaxy A5 (2017) is water-resistant up to 1 m level for 30 minutes. The body is IP68 certified along with dust-resistance.

Coming to the display screen, as always from Samsung, the quality speaks larger than specs. This 5.2-inch FHD Super AMOLED screen neither has the largest screen size or the highest resolution. Native resolution comes in at 1920 x 1080 pixels with a 424 PPI pixel density. But this is a fantastic display with beautiful vivid details, rich colors and powerful blacks – enough to attract new buyers.

A 71% screen-with-body proportion and a tentative Corning version 4 Gorilla Glass are the other worthwhile specs.

Camera Specs

Both front and rear cameras are 16 MP tools with f/1.9 apertures. The rear camera comes with a phase detection autofocus feature perfect for that single moment which will not be missed. The front camera comes with a floating shutter button for a flawless selfie. FHD videos can be captured in premium quality along with multiple other features which make way for an HDR moving captures. Both these cameras come with a CMOS image sensor.

Chipset and Processor

This Samsung Galaxy A5 (2017) runs on an Exynos 7880 Octa chipset which use an OctaCore 1.9 GHz Cortex A53 processor. Multi-window utility is great with near to nil processing lag. Graphics processing is even richer thanks to a Mali-T830M2 dedicated GPU or Graphics Processing Unit.

A 3 GB RAM powers this processor. Internal storage comes in at 32 GB, a top-ranking feature compared to other products in this price range. External storage can be extended to a maximum of 256 GB via microSD slot.

Software OS and Battery

This device runs an Android v6.0.1 Marshmallow. Although some buyers would prefer a 7.0 Nougat, this is perhaps a sensible choice from Samsung keeping in that the Nougat does not have all the updates now. This Samsung Galaxy A5 (2017) has high chances to come with a 7.0 update later on. A 3000 mAh battery runs this whole device.
