Samsung Galaxy A5

 

Samsung Galaxy A5 review: With its sleek metal unibody design, the A5 is one of the most attractive mid-range phones.

Classy design ; Water-resistant ; Bright, vivid screen

Old, ugly software ; Not on Android Nougat (yet)

The 3,000mAh cell – non-removable, as is now common with Samsung phones – is capable of making it through the day with few issues, and if you’re only using the phone infrequently throughout the day, it should have some juice left over for the following...

Samsung Galaxy A5 review: Samsung’s mid-range gets a makeover

 

It looks great and runs pretty great too, but the price is a little high

Excellent screen ; Great quality

Samsung Galaxy A5 review: Marvellous exterior, mid-range interior

 

In this job we are constantly jostling between different phones. Often they're the latest and greatest handsets, so when a mid-range model such as the Samsung Galaxy A5 comes along we tend to cross our fingers and hope there will be something standout...

Delightful design (prefer it to SGS5), bright and colourful display, fair price makes more sense than original Galaxy Alpha, powerful enough to cater for most, 4G connectivity

Outspecced by Sony Z3 Compact, not Android Lollipop (which we think will smooth out OS slickness), would like a more significant battery, low-light camera ability

As a nod to where Samsung is heading with design, the Galaxy A5 is a great example of quality. Indeed, we'd rather have one in the pocket than the flagship Galaxy S5 - but that's just about to be replaced with the S6 come April, which fuses the best of...

Samsung Galaxy A5 (2015) review

 

The larger rival to Sony Xperia Z3 Compact

Neat design ; More powerful screen

Still feels slightly odd ; Could be more expensive than better specced models

A neat package that finally points to Samsung sorting out the design problems it's had for years.

Samsung Galaxy A5 review

 

An AMOLED screen, excellent camera and long battery life, but poor performance lets the pricey Galaxy A5 down

Samsung Galaxy A5 review

 

In the hand it feels remarkably svelte, and that's mainly because it's just 6.7mm thick. These figures are slightly lower than those for the iPhone 6, which is 129g and 6.9mm.

When put next to the Galaxy S5, it's hard to find reasons to buy the A5 instead. It's not a bad phone, but the S5 is simply better value now that it has dropped in price.

Samsung Galaxy A5 review

With premium all-metal design and a mid-range price tag, the Samsung Galaxy A5 is aimed at those who want a more affordable phone but don't want to compromise on looks. We like the slim body, but does it have the necessary processing power and battery...

Samsung Galaxy A5 (2017) review: Samsung’s mid-range phone is still gorgeous and cheaper than ever

 

Samsung's mid-priced alternative to the OnePlus 5 touches down, and it's a very strong contender

The one fly in the ointment is that the phone doesn’t come with Android 7 Nougat out of the box, which is mildly disappointing, but that doesn’t detract from the fact that the Samsung Galaxy A5 is a great mid-range smartphone. The current price of...
