The Inquirer

This premium-looking mid-ranger is a great start to Samsung's year

from The Inquirer
The Galaxy A5 is that rare not-a-flagship phone that doesn't feel like a compromise, with many of the design touches of its more expensive brethren and a satisfying feature set. The display, cameras and hardware tick the right boxes and while there are some weaker points - battery life, software niggles and the inevitable shadow of the Note 7 - extras like fast charging and waterproofing make this feel like a smart choice in its price range...

Such an interesting device

from PhoneArena
All things considered, the Galaxy A5 (2017) is not a bad phone. It’s a very, very good phone. Get it if you truly care about long battery life, the feature-rich interface and excellent keyboard typing experience. Get it for the looks. For all else, other phones are priced more fairly and offer more bang for the buck... Full review

A real mid-range champ

from TrustedReviews
Samsung has really improved its already impressive A-series with the 2017 edition of the Galaxy A5. The addition of water resistance, USB Type-C, a classier design, impressive display and highly efficient CPU combine to make a seriously well-specced mid-range device that offers up a viable alternative to the OnePlus 3T...

Waterproof midranger packs decent specifications

from VR-Zone
The Samsung Galaxy A5 is a decent midranger. It’s strongest suit is perhaps its luxurious body that’s waterproof, and maybe a good Super AMOLED display. For its price, its speed and performance is alright, but not spectacular and there are better options in the market. Perhaps even the S6 would be a better choice than the A5 if you don’t need the waterproof features... Full review

Premium feel at a mid-range price

from Pocket-lint
For a phone that costs less than £400, the Galaxy A5 is impressive in its design and build. Even its display and performance punch beyond that price point. In many ways it's a cheaper version of the Galaxy S7, except it doesn't really feel cheap at all when you pick it up. It's solid and quite beautiful... Full review
GSMArena

Alphabet soup

from GSMArena
The facts are that the Galaxy A5 (2017) is beautifully-built; it will live through a downpour; it packs a screen that's only bested by flagships, and has battery life to spare. Of course, it's not ideal, and it's not cheap, but you're also unlikely to find a better match for the description in the previous sentence. Well, not unless you dig even deeper into your pocket...
