Samsung Galaxy A5 (2017) Review
The Samsung Galaxy A5 (2017) is a 5.2-inch device which does not compromise with quality viewing. The phone has been carved out quite well with a slight curved rear and thin bezels. It also comes with an inbuilt "Blue Light Filter" mode to help your eyes from getting strained. Apart from a well packed configuration and quality cameras, the device has certain quirks like water and dust resistance, and a highly secure folder to lock away all your confidential items. The only thing disappointing about the smartphone is the Android version it has been shipped with.
