Samsung Galaxy A5 is a middle-ground when talking about Galaxy A series. It offers a fair ratio between price and performance. The hardware here isn’t the best and you may think that this smartphone is overpriced for the hardware it offers… that’s where you’ll be wrong. Octa-core 1.6 GHz Cortex-A53 is the heart of Samsung Galaxy A5 and Mali-T720MP2 is the GPU found here. While you may not be able to have great gaming experience here, Galaxy A5 however, offers a smooth experience when browsing the menu, the internet etc.

What we like about this smartphone is that there is Android 5.1.1 (Lollipop), upgradable to 7.0 (Nougat). Almost all of the smartphones are upgradable to Android 7.0 and this is a nice addition, especially for the price you can buy these smartphones. The camera is the same one located in A7 and A9, and it’s a 13 MP camera, which is a really solid performer for this price tag.

    The best budget smartphone for me

    I didn't have much money to spend on a smartphone so my friend suggested me Galaxy A5. I'm really amazed by how well this phone works. I also have a full HD screen on 5.2" screen size, which looks sharp as hell! Galaxy A5 can also play some games and i do that regularly.
