Taking after Samsung's Galaxy Alpha flagship is the 5-inch 6.7mm thin Galaxy A5, replacing the brand's traditional plastic casing with a full metal unibody design. It sports a 13-megapixel camera at the back, with a pretty respectable 5-megapixel one on the front side. Unlike the octa-core-equipped Alpha, it runs on a 1.2GHz quad-core processor paired with a 2GB RAM -- a duo that we have seen on several other mid-level models. It offers a pretty spacious 16GB internal memory, and allows up to 64GB worth of expansion though its microSD slot.
