Samsung Galaxy A5 Review

Key features

  • Comes with 4G networking capabilities
  • Fingerprint reader
  • Superior cameras that can capture 1080p video
  • Large capacity battery with good battery life

Introduction

Like all the other phones in Samsung’s A-series, the Samsung Galaxy A5 is a Smartphone for those people who want a near premium touch and feel without the high price tag. Of course, there are a number of things that are missing when you compare it with the flagship models, but most of the essential premium features are present. It comes with a premium metal and glass design, which means that the build quality is just as good as what you would find on the Galaxy S6. It has a more premium look and feel when compared to most of the other mid-range phones. When it comes to memory, it comes with 16GB internal storage capacity and 2GB of RAM. Considering the high resolution cameras available, this storage space is barely enough for high quality images, which is why there is a microSD card slot that you can use to improve the storage space by up to 256GB. The most impressive thing about this design is how they managed to fit everything in the slim 6.7mm body. You also get a fingerprint sensor on the Home button that is quick to unlock the phone.

What is the screen resolution ?

The A5 comes with a Full HD 5.2 inch screen with a pixel density of 424 pixels per inch. This screen has a screen resolution of 1080 by 1920 pixels. This is a multi-touch screen that is capable of taking inputs from more than one finger at a time. When it comes to imaging, the Samsung Galaxy A5 comes with a 13MP primary camera that has a 28mm focal length. It comes with all the standard Samsung camera features like face detection, geo-tagging, panorama, and HDR. The secondary camera is a 5MP lens with a 24mm focal length.

What is the battery life ?

When it comes to battery, the Samsung Galaxy A5 comes with a non-removable lithium-ion battery with a 2900 mAh rating. When compared to the Galaxy S6, the A5 delivers better runtime owing to its larger capacity battery and hardware that is not as demanding as that in the S6.

How long does its battery last?

As mentioned, the Samsung Galaxy A5’s battery is very impressive. It can give up to 16 hours of 3G talk time, which is impressive when compared to its peers. This means that it’s possible to go a day or two without the need for recharging depengin on your usage.

What is the sound and video quality ?

The loudspeaker that comes with this phone is loud, and it produces decent quality of sound when playing music. Voice recordings are also clear. Both cameras can record 1080p videos but users will have to make do with a frame rate of 30 fps.

Conclusion: Should I buy it ?

The Samsung Galaxy A5 is the device to go for if you want premium features but don’t want to pay the full price. You will however have to overlook some bells and whistles that come with the flagship models.

  • The Good :
    Good camera, affordable, premium design
  • The Bad :
    Only 30fps video available
Our score:
4 / 5
