Samsung Galaxy A5 2017 Brief Review and Pros Cons:

Samsung A5 2017 is similar to  Samsung A7 with a smaller screen size and some updates. The A5 has a very solid build quality and is IP 68 dust and water proof certified. The phone runs on an Exynos 7880 octa core processor and does a good job. The phone holds a Super AMOLED screen that has good viewing angle and display.

Regarding the camera, the rear camera is a 16MP shooter and does a very good job. The image quality and color reproduction are good. The front camera is also a 16MP shooter but takes just an average selfie, not something which Samsung can boast off even with a 16MP front camera. Also, the phone does not support 4K video recording.

Coming to the gaming performance, A5 does a very impressive job, there is no lags or frame drops noticed even in heavier games. This phone also does a brilliant job in terms of heat dissipation and no heating issues observed with 15-20 minutes of continuous extended gaming.

The A5 comes with a dedicated sim slot and the memory is expandable up to 256GB. 

The battery life of a full charge phone is almost a full day and it also comes with a fast charging. The phone also supports Samsung pay and you can swipe the phone at any SamsungPay POS. 

While the phone does a very good job is almost all department, the pricing is just not acceptable. This phone is a buy, if you are looking for brand Samsung, given the performance, else the phone is overpriced. Some of the other phones available in this price range include Samsung Galaxy C7 Pro, Samsung A9, Motorola Z Play, Apple iPhone 6.
