Samsung Galaxy A5 2017 Pros & Cons Review

Picture of the Samsung Galaxy A5 2017, by Samsung

- Analysis by KJ David


The Samsung Galaxy A5 2017 shares most of its A7 big brother's high-end DNA, with a 16-megapixel f/1.9 primary camera and an identical 16-megapixel (also with an f/1.9 aperture) selfie camera leading its pros. Despite its promising camera duo, however, the A5 2017 lacks a full-blown frontal LED flash , which we have seen on several other high-ranking selfie smartphones -- feel free to check them out on the link below. Additionally, Samsung makes no mention of a 4K (3840 x 2160) video-recording option that makes total sense, considering its camera resolutions.

Front Camera Android Phones

The rest of its pros and cons include a desirable 256GB microSD card slot accompanying its 32GB-only internal memory (Some of its upscale rivals pack 64GB of on-board storage), a 1.9GHz octa-core processor coupled with 3GB of RAM , and a 5.2-inch Full HD Always-On Super AMOLED display .

Octa-core Smartphones

Specs like a 3000mAh fast-charging-enabled battery as well as a home-key-embedded fingerprint sensor are on board as well. Moreover, its casing is composed of a metal frame met by a 3D glass back and it passes the IP68 rugged rating for dust- and waterproofing.

Waterproof Smartphones

Its preloaded software include Samsung's signature KNOX and Secure Folder security applications as well as the NFC-based Samsung Pay mobile wallet app , with an LTE Cat 6 network adapter taking charge of the connectivity department.

So, here is what our thorough review of its pros and cons tells us: This 2017 edition of Samsung's Galaxy A5 smartphone targets high-end shoppers in search of a flagship-caliber pair of cameras encased by a water-tight housing.
