Design and display

Slim, curved build

The Samsung Galaxy A5 (2017) is now thinner than ever as just 71.4mm thick, with thanks to its slightly curved build. It’s also water-resistant now – certified as IP68 – meaning it can safely be submerged in 1.5m of fresh water for up to 30 minutes. 

Bright, powerful screen

The A5 (2017) has a 5.2-inch Full HD display, protected by Corning Gorilla Glass. There’s also Samsung’s Super AMOLED screen technology, to make sure everything you do on the phone looks amazing.  

Camera

Improved camera

On the back of the phone is 16MP sensor, jam-packed with great features to take your photography game to the next level. But it’s not just your still photography that will benefit, as you can also shoot 1080p video at 30fps.   

Equally awesome selfies

There’s a secondary 16MP camera on the front of the A5 (2017) too - a huge spec for a mid-range smartphone. All your selfies will look great, as will your video calls recorded in Full HD resolution.  

Under the hood

More power

Move between apps without any annoying buffering screens with the super-powered 1.9GHz octa-core processor. Lots of processing power essentially means you can do more at once - stream movies in Full HD and enjoy the biggest games with no lag time. 

Speed charging

The 3,000mAh battery isn’t just able to store over a day’s worth of charge, but it can be powered up quicker than ever with the new USB technology. Gone is the micro USB input, making room for the reversible Type-C port, for fast charging and swift data transfer.

Samsung Galaxy A5 2017 is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 44.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from It's ok I bought this phone about 4 months ago and it worked great. I thought it was going to be an upgrade from the A3 but it's pretty much the same despite being £100 more expensive. There's nothing really special about it and the glass breaks very easily. I dropped it once from about 2ft with a protective case and it still shattered the front and the back. As well as that the LCD broke meaning a purple liquid leaked all over the inside of the screen and the phone was pretty much useless within 24 hours. So I shouldn't have dropped it but I did not have this problem with any other phone I had even though this one was much more expensive. Camera is ok but could be better and the phone itself Can lag sometimes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply stunning and lasts for ages! Wow what a phone! I've just traded my IPhone 7 in for this as it didn't even compare. The battery life and features are amazing. The camera could be a little better but probably the best phone I have ever had and believe me I know my phone's. I would recommend this phone to anyone 10 times over.
