    “The Galaxy A5 marks a change in Samsung’s design strategy. We have taken it through our review grind to see how it fares”It’s interesting to note the contrast in strategy adopted by leading smartphone manufacturer Samsung in the first half of 2015 vs the same period the previous year. Last year, the Chaebol focussed more on its upper end range with devices like the Galaxy S5 (review | cheatsheet) and Note 3 Neo (review). However, with th...

    Pros: Well-built and good design; Pleasing display; Impressive pair of snappers; Long-lasting battery life;

    Cons: Middling performance; Pricey proposition; .

    Verdict: If you’ve been following our review all along, then the verdict is pretty clear… the Samsung Galaxy A5 comes across as a worthy smartphone and offers an all-round experience. It features a classy design, which Samsung devices weren’t known for ...

    Overall: This is a product review, and not related to shopping experience from Flipkart.nn1st - I noticed about this phone is its looks, which are killer. I liked midnight blue color because the contrast of silver metal edges on this color looks the best and unmatched. Its one of the most attractive phone in the market today in my view. nn2nd - It supports LTE, which is soon be useful, as all the operators are eyeing for launch of their services, and I want to have the very first experience when its available. So a forward looking capability. nn3rd - It doesn't have all the unnecessary Samsung apps pre-installed, and that's a big relief from previous versions. Out of the box I had RAM usage 1GB left.nn4th - Camera has simple menu, and good performance. Click by showing ur palm in selfie mode has made selfie easy and more perfect, and rear camera is good, but could be better. nn5th - It has Corning Gorilla Glass 4. HD Display (1280x720 - Its not FULL HD), which produces good pictures/videos, and viewing angels are superb. Readability during Sunlight is good.nn6th - With 3G Data ON it lasted approx 14 hrs, and with only on demand 3G data (used when needed), the battery lasted whole 17 hrs (with still 40% remaining). So by that its battery performance is excellent. Charging is comparatively faster too. nn7th - Touch is fluid, sensitive, OS is Android Kitkat 4.4.4 which is customized by Samsung, and it feels good to me. It has good themes, and wallpapers too to match ur mood. nn8th - Since it support 1+1 Nano SIM (both having 3G) or 1 Nano SIM + 1 SD Card trays, it has a flexibility of usage as per needs. nn9th - MRP is 25500, however you can get it in 24000 easily. Samsung S-View Cover is New Gray Color, and fits well in hand along with it. It still gives compact looks, and good grip in hands. nn10th - I wish Speaker Volume and Resolution of this Phone could be better (Full HD). nnI think if you are looking for a good brand having a service network, having forward looking capabilities (4G), eye catching looks, good battery performance, and not so heavy on pocket, this is a phone for you. Go for it ! I hope this review helps.
