The Galaxy A5, a new mid-range device by Samsung, is on show at CES 2015, and we’re obtaining our 1st acquaintance with the telephone set on the saleroom floor. It’s a 5” device with a 720p resolution, a quad-core Snadpragon 410 system chip, a 13-megapixel camera, and a 2300mAh battery.
The new Samsung style shown within the Galaxy A5 is seductive and makes the device stand enter the ocean of plastic android devices. The metal frame is unquestionably a welcome surprise in such a reasonable handset, so is that the slim profile.

The 5-inch show of the Galaxy A5 sports a resolution of 720 x 1280 pixels that we discover to be fine in terms of sharpness: you may spot pixelization if you explore the screen from up shut, however the picture element density of 294ppi undoubtedly provides an image that's sharp enough to please most of the people. It’s a brilliant AMOLED panel that we’re gazing, with the standard deep black, glorious distinction and nice viewing angles.
The Galaxy A5 runs on android 4.4 KitKat with Samsung’s TouchWiz interface. All has been said about the TouchWiz skin - it’s a rich, typically irresistibly wealthy, custom skin with some likable choices, however a bit of AN more than cartoony color and a few sluggish components. The a lot of interesting question is once this phone can get updated to the newer android 5.0 Lollipop, and whereas we tend to don't have the solution to that, we hope that the solution is ‘soon’.
Processor and Memory
The quad-core snapdragon 410 system chip aboard the Galaxy A5 places it straight into the mid-range, reasonable class. With variations in sharpness being pretty tokenish in their sensible look, it's the system chip that has become the one component that sets devices apart the most.
Our impressions ar that the phone runs fine for daily tasks and games. it'd not be future proof, however having a 720p resolution (and not 1080p) plays to its profit as games play with ease and nice framerate
We’re staring at a 13-megapixel main camera and a 5-megapixel front shooter on the Galaxy A5. The resolution can’t tell the entire story, but 13-megapixel is enough to make sure quite comfortable level of detail. The Galaxy A5 also supports 1080p Full HD recording. It lacks 4K video recording, though, which is another disadvantage that sets it except for higher-end phones. we have a tendency to got to say that we have a tendency to appreciate Samsung adding a additional capable, 5-megapixel front cam in here, as it’s clear that selfies have taken the planet by a smartphone, and there’s essentially no going back.
