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.

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 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.

Samsung Galaxy A5 2016 review


The Samsung Galaxy A5 (2016) is a beautiful phone, with a metal and glass design that's similar to the flagship S6. It's a capable performer with an AMOLED display, fingerprint scanner, 8-core processor and good battery life. Now that the price has...

The Galaxy A5 has the premium looks of a flagship phone, but for less money. At launch it was over-priced, but has now fallen to a much more reasonable price, and we highly recommend it.

Samsung Galaxy A5 (2016) Review: Good mid-range phone with a few flagship features - MySmartPrice


The year 2015 was the period which turned the tables for Samsung. Two of its devices, the Samsung Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy Note5 released that year received much acclaim, and still are arguably the eye-catching and neatly designed smartphones that...

Samsung Galaxy A5 (2016) Review


Samsung launched the Galaxy A5 (2016) , after more than a year of launching its first Galaxy A5 smartphone in its ‘A series' in India. On paper, specifications of the new A5 smartphone are way better than its predecessor. Even the new A5 is priced at...

Brilliant Display; Solid build quality; Good battery life; Good camera

Priced on the higher side; Runs on Android Lollipop; No notification LED; Slippery to hold

At a price tag of Rs. 29,400, the Galaxy A5 (2016) is costly compared to other smartphones in the range, even though it is a good upgrade to . If you spend a bit more you can get the Galaxy S6 and also a LG G4 with a dual SIM slot. Samsung has improved...

Samsung Galaxy A5 (2016) review


We take a closer look at the third device in Samsung's latest mid-range series, in this in-depth Samsung Galaxy A5 (2016) review!

Premium metal and glass construction ; Vibrant Full HD Display ; Micro SD card expansion ; Great battery life ; Fingerprint scanner ; Fast performance

Weak speaker ; Occasional homescreen lag issues ; Mediocre camera

The Galaxy A5 is almost identical to the Galaxy S6, but with mid-range specs, a lower resolution display, and downgraded camera. However, the former actually surpasses the latter in other key areas, including battery life, and the availability of...

Samsung Galaxy A5 (2016) review: a compelling package


Samsung has confirmed it won't be releasing a Galaxy S6 Mini . Instead, the gap will be filled with an overhauled Galaxy A series. Samsung has released the smaller Galaxy A3, plus a larger model, the A5. In this review, I'll be investigating the...

Display ; Battery ; MicroSD slot ; Design

Camera ; Performance ; Price

Its strengths and weaknesses keep the Samsung Galaxy A5 (2016) on an even scale. Plusses include the A5’s attractive display with crisp, sharp colors and contrast. The battery life is also very good. Even with intensive use, this phone won’t need to...

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...
