Samsung Galaxy A5 2017 Design, Display and OS
This is the 2017 version of Samsung Galaxy A5 and looks a lot different. The front as well as back comes with a glass layer that looks great, gives a very premium feel but unfortunately also makes the handset quite slippery – you need to be extra careful. Build and finishing is very good. The rear body is slight curved towards the sides.
The a5 2017 is to be had in black and gold shade options. That is a twin sim handset you could use 2x nano sim plus a micro sd card all together. There’s no led notification but this handset does come with an constantly on display. A5 2017 is full of appropriate wide variety of sensors accelerometer, barometer, light, proximity, gyro, magnetic, temperature and hall sensors.
Samsung Galaxy A5 2017 Memory and Storage
There is 3GB RAM, 32GB ROM and 256GB micro SD card support. I tried using the TYPE C adapter and connected micro USB pendrive, it did not work – OTG is not supported.
There is a 16MP AF camera on the back with a f/1.9 aperture and front camera is also 16MP with F/1.9 aperture. The camera can shoot FHD videos. Still picture quality is average, just short of above average category. The manual mode gives limited option otherwise I would have got a better idea. But in general was expecting better camera performance in low light with f/1.9 aperture. I believe an update can improve the camera performance.
