Reviews for the Samsung Galaxy A5 2017

Samsung Galaxy A5 preview: Premium feel at a mid-range price
Source: Pocket Lint English
In fact, the only compromise we can see at this stage is in its Full HD 5.2-inch screen when higher resolutions are fairly widespread. But the display is still sharp and vibrant, so we doubt many will notice or care.

Hands on: Samsung Galaxy A5 2017 review
Source: Techradar English
Samsung’s Galaxy A range has never been this exciting. Samsung has managed to take a lot of the highlights from the Galaxy S7 and applied them to the mid-range device, which is a great step.

This display is quite big for a smartphone but frequently used for smartphones.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

Only few smartphones are more lightweight than this.
