Product Description

Samsung has proven once again that it is one of the companies that could produce high-end smartphones. On the first quarter of the year 2017, the telecommunications company introduced the newest version of the Samsung Galaxy A5, model SM-A520F. The new Samsung A5 is performing better than its predecessor with the same version name.

The new A5 is water-resistant with IP68 certification, which means the phone can withstand fresh water damage for 30 minutes, submerged at the depth of 1.5 meters. The phone comes with a 5.2 inches AMOLED display. With the enhanced LED display, the phone filters Blue light and is brighter than other phones are, even under extreme sunlight brightness.

The phone’s processor is a 1.9GHz octa-core under the processor make, Exynos 7870. It is 36% more power efficient than the old version. The phone has an internal storage of 32GB with expandable storage slot of up to 256GB capacity and a RAM of 3GB.

Samsung Galaxy A5 (2017) has two SIM slots. Both slots require nano-sized SIMs and are capable of 3G and 4G/LTE connections. Although in some countries, 4G/LTE connections may not be supported, especially if it’s not officially in those countries. Aside from these connections, the phone features a USB-C port for charging and OTG.

The front and rear camera boast 16MP lenses. Despite this, the phone does not support a 4k video and lacks stabilization features. A 3000mAh battery, non-removable, powers the phone. Combined with a power-efficient processor, the battery has extended battery life. It runs on an Android 6.0, Marshmallow and is NFC enabled. Users may choose from four different colors, tagged with fancy names of black sky, peach cloud, gold sand and blue mist.

Overall, the Samsung Galaxy A5 (2017) is a great improvement from the old version. With a mid-price range, buying this phone is worth it.
