Being the mid-range smartphones of Samsung for at least two years now, the Samsung Galaxy A series has its own series of ups and downs, which are strictly observed and changed accordingly. Launched during the beginning of year 2015, the Galaxy A Series is widely-known for their differences in screen size and features, the A3 being the least while the A7 being the greatest. The 2015 Galaxy A series models received quite a lot of applause. The Galaxy A Series models as of last year, on the other hand, had received quite a lot of complaints when it comes to performance, despite featuring an impressive and quite trendy screen.
That’s the reason why the 2017 Galaxy A Series models are improved in both outside and inside.
Samsung Galaxy A5 (2017): The Features
Reputed to be as good as the Galaxy S7, the Samsung Galaxy A5 has a lot of interesting features under its sleeve (or cover, to be precise). Starting from its processor that is known to be power-efficient, the A5 (2017) uses the latest USB Type-C port for quick charging, has an improved camera as well as an IP68 official rating for its water-resistant Super AMOLED screen.
Compared to this year’s Galaxy A3, the Galaxy A5 is definitely an eye-catcher due to its almost seamless metal and glass build, making most people mistake it for the Galaxy S7 model. Aside from its scratch-resistant Corning Gorilla glass, the new A5 comes in four different colors, namely: Blue Mist, Gold Sand, Peach Cloud and Black Sky. Its IP68 rating allows it to get protected from immersion up to five feet deep for at least thirty minutes (though negligence is not recommended).
Its battery power, which measures up to 3000mAh, ensures that you can use it without power worries for at least seventeen hours for calls, eighteen hours for internet browsing, video playback for nineteen hours or fifty-three hours for music.
