Samsung Galaxy A5 (2016) review: 2017 A5 is here


Fast and beautifully designed, the Galaxy A5 (2016) is Samsung's best mid-range phone yet, but is the 2017 A5 a better purchase?

Cheap flagship alternative ; Great camera ; Lengthy battery life

2017 Galaxy A5 is better in every way

Of course, the A5 is much cheaper than the S6 SIM-free, but when you can currently get an S6 for around £360, it's not as much of a leap as you might think. Still, there's plenty to like about the A5, and it easily sits alongside the Nexus 5X as one of...

Samsung Galaxy A5 2016 review


Samsung has upgraded its Galaxy A5 for 2016, and it's done a fantastic job on this mid-range Android phone. We review the Samsung Galaxy A5 2016.

The Galaxy A5 2016 is an enormous improvement over the Galaxy A5 2015, and now resembles last year’s flagship Galaxy S6. Unfortunately, it’s not quite as fast or feature-packed as that phone, making its now-£50 price difference seem insane. If you can...

Samsung Galaxy A5 (2016) Review: In Depth


Samsung Galaxy A5 6 (2016) Review: We've fallen hard for the Galaxy A5 6, Samsung's 2016 reboot of last year's original Galaxy A5.

Great battery life ; Solid cameras ; Fingerprint sensor

Deja-vu design ; Old Android

The Samsung Galaxy A5 6 is a brilliant refresh of an already solid smartphone, and one of the best £300 mobiles you’ll find (alongside greats such as the Sony Xperia Z5 Compact and Motorola Moto X Force). Dependable performance, solid battery life and...

Samsung may know how to design a high-end smartphone, but is it any good at making mid-range handsets? We put its Samsung Galaxy A5 (2016 version) to the test to find out.

Samsung Galaxy A5 (2016) review: Standing tall


The A-Team is back and we start with the Samsung Galaxy A5 (2016). It pairs a premium build with premium features, a true S6 lookalike.

Available with a hybrid dual-SIM/microSD slot ; Metal frame sandwiched between 2.5D Gorilla Glass 4 ; 5.2" Super AMOLED of 1,080 x 1,920px resolution, ~424ppi ; Octa-core Cortex-A53 processor, 2GB of RAM, Adreno 405 GPU; Snapdragon 615 chipset (also...

No 4K video or 1080p @ 60fps ; Limited storage out of the box, no 32GB version ; No MHL (but USB OTG is supported)

Samsung Galaxy A5 (2016) Smartphone Review


Upgraded mid-range. Just one year after the first Galaxy A5 generation, Samsung introduces the successor. Updates are found in screen, wireless module as well as the SoC. However, the performance still proves to be a minor shortcoming.

superb screen ; very good build ; very long battery life ; low emissions ; expandable storage via micro-SD ; fingerprint scanner

middling performance ; non-removable battery ; slippery back side ; PWM flickering

Samsung's Galaxy A5 (2016) proves to be a successful advancement of the predecessor in most sectors. The mid-range smartphone is again very elegant and, apart from PWM flickering, it has one of the best panels in this segment. The cameras have also...

Samsung's new Galaxy A5 is neither too big nor too small (hands-on)


Samsung's Galaxy A range of smartphones is designed for a younger, trendier crowd who can't afford its higher end flagships, such as the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge. Announced late last year, the updated 2016 versions of these phones sport metal bodies...

Unlike the cheaper A3, the A5 comes packing a fingerprint sensor on the home button -- a feature found mostly on Samsung's higher-end phones, such as the S6. If you value security for your devices, well, this could help. Samsung's Super AMOLED panels...

Samsung Galaxy A5 review: A mid-range smartphone with plenty of features


If you're looking for a mid-range smartphone with a decent camera and premium looking design, the Samsung Galaxy A5 is definitely worth considering.

Samsung Galaxy A5 (2016) Review


Upper mid-range smartphones are exciting. Traditionally, sub-flagship smartphones haven't been getting as much love as they deserve; there haven't been that many 'hero' devices to come out from the more affordable ranks. Last year, we saw a good deal...

Commendable build quality and styling ; Fine camera experience ; More than decent battery life

TouchWiz is a shameful software experience ; System performance isn't up to snuff ; Ships with Android 5.1, when it should have been 6

The Samsung Galaxy A5 (2016) is a beautiful, but flawed smartphone. It's hard not to like, or at least appreciate its classy look and quality feel.
