Everything you need to know Why buy the Samsung Galaxy A5 2017 Blue

Proper fancy design

New for 2017, the updated Galaxy A5 arrives on the scene with a swanky design that’s sure to turn heads. This may be a mid-range device, but it still sports a stylish metal and glass body that really looks the business. It can even survive a dunk in the bath, as this durable device is rated as officially water resistant.

Elsewhere on this super-smart handset, you’ll discover a fingerprint scanner to keep your lovely content safe from prying eyes and would-be trouble makers. There’s also a micro SD slot, which lets you hulk out the phones storage by a whopping extra 256GB.

Awesome new features

Mind-boggling camera

Updated operating system

Dazzling Display

Whether you’re kicking back with the latest movie, or exercising your thumbs on a blockbuster game, you can enjoy super-sharp images on the A5’s HD screen. Measuring in at 5.2 inches, this awesome display is a treat for the eyeballs.

What’s more, even when the phone is asleep, it can still keep you in the loop. This is down to the always-on display, which shows you the time, date and notifications, even when the screen is powered down. Now you’ll never be in the dark again.

Two cracking cameras

Looking for an awesome 16 megapixel camera? Look no further, as the A5 (2017) has got two. That’s right – both the front and back of the device is furnished with a jaw-dropping super-snapper, ready to make short work of scenery and selfies alike.

There’s a host of extra camera features to discover, such as automatic autofocus on the rear camera, to ensure your pics are always steady and sharp. The front-facing camera is equipped with a floating shutter button, perfect for stunning selfies at any angle.

Feel the power

Don’t be fooled by its affordable price-tag – the Galaxy A5 (2017) still manages to cram in the heavy-duty specs where it counts. Under the hood, there’s a super-fast octa-core processor, ready to take on all your gaming and multi-tasking needs.

Also on board is a long-lasting battery to ensure you won’t run out of juice halfway through the day. However, if you do find yourself in a low-battery emergency half-way through a boxset binge, the fast-charging feature will soon sort you out.
