With the Galaxy A3 and A5, Samsung has given a new twist to their midrange devices. The A5, the more expensive of the two, is currently on sale for about € 400, and is also the most expensive model of the last line A arriving in the Netherlands. What we think of this device, can be seen in the video review of the Samsung Galaxy A5 2017.
The Galaxy A5 2017 is the latest device in the Samsung A line. You see a lot on the outside of the company's flagship last year, the Galaxy S7. However, there are some things that are different. Take the speaker, for example. This is in a unique place, that is, the side. Many manufacturers choose to make the speaker at the bottom or back. It is also useful that the Galaxy A5 2017 is water resistant. You do not see this with many devices and certainly not with devices of about € 400, -. Therefore, this is a good and very welcome addition.
Under the hood we found the Exynos 7880 processor. This chip is made by Samsung and in combination with 3 GB of RAM, this should keep the device running smoothly. The 5.2-inch screen is a super-cushioned Samsung panel with a resolution of 1920 by 1080 pixels. In the lower part we find a USB C port and a headphone connection.
Both the back of the device and the front have a 16 megapixel camera. Especially for selfies this will have to ensure that these are very sharp. The rear camera also shoots fine photos, although sometimes they are a bit dark. A useful addition is the manual operation of the ISO and the shutter speed in the camera software.
