Samsung Galaxy A5 Reviews

90/100

"I love the glorious smoothness of the Galaxy A5 experience, provided by a 1.2GHz Snapdragon 410 backed up by a respectable 2GB of RAM. Zipping through desktops, menus, apps and everything else is a slick, stutter-free experience pretty much all of the time, the way it really should be. "

"Samsung recognizes that the camera is an important feature for a lot of users and packs even their mid-range devices with high quality cameras, which is the case with the Galaxy A5.

"... in less favourable conditions, the camera flailed: photos lacked clarity and sharpness and veered towards oranges and yellows. We also found the flash quite harsh (it's worth standing back a little to avoid blowing out your subjects)."

"...you will find yourself topping out way too soon. Hi-res gaming and processor hungry tasks are the kinds of things the Galaxy A5 just can't cope with. You just need to take a look at some benchmarks to know that you cannot ask too much from the A5."
