What has the Samsung Galaxy A5 2017 got to offer?
The Galaxy A5’s key features are:
- 5.2-inch AMOLED screen
- 16-megapixel front and back cameras
- 32GB of storage, compatible with MicroSD cards
- Fast processor
- Good battery life and fast charging
The Samsung Galaxy A5 2017 has a 1080p FHD resolution. The display is AMOLED, rather than LCD, which makes the colours more vivid.
The Samsung Galaxy A5 2017 is powered by a brand-new octa-core Exynos 7880 CPU and comes loaded with 3GB of RAM to keep it running quickly and smoothly.
Decent battery life
The 3000mAh battery should survive a whole day of heavy use on just a single charge. And when you do need to boost the battery, the adaptive fast-charge mode will get you from nothing to 80% in an hour.
The Samsung Galaxy A5 2017 comes with a reasonable 32GB of storage. If you need more than that though, you can always add a MicroSD card to boost it up to a whopping 256GB.
Samsung’s Galaxy A5 2017 has a higher IP rating than the iPhone 7 at IP68. This means that the phone can handle being immersed in five feet of water for as much as 30 minutes.
16-megapixel front and back cameras
The Galaxy A5 2017 has a 16-megapixel main camera that has f/1.9 aperture, which allows you to capture some decent bokeh effects and helps with low-light performance. It’s also got optical image stabilisation technology for minimising camera-shake.
Around the front, there’s another 16-megapixel camera for incredibly detailed selfies and FaceTime HD video calls.
