If you want to sell or trade your Samsung Galaxy A5, you’re at the right place.
But first, determine if you want to trade your phone for a better version, or do you want to sell it for cash?
Whichever you decide, we’ll walk you through the steps to get your desired outcome.
In the meantime, let’s review your phone.
One word to describe the Samsung Galaxy A5 is militia. A mitilita is a fight if I need to basis. It’s not as organized, trained, or as equipped as an active military force. But a militia can still get the job if needs be. And that’s how the Galaxy A5 comes across. It looks like a flagship warrior, but underneath, it’s a civilian that likes to do civilian things. In a pinch, the A5 can do all the things you expect a flagship model to do. It just can’t do it with the same speed and precision, but it does it well.
So who is the Galaxy A5 for?
If I had to choose one word to describe this person, it would be practical. You see: This person is not a “phone person,” but they understand the social and business dynamics of owning a smartphone. They’re not planning on taking tons of pictures, watching movies, and gaming. But if they need to, they have the comfort of knowing that the Galaxy A5 is fully capable. And the best thing: They don’t have to spend a fortune to do so.
There’s something classy about the Galaxy A5. It’s plain and simple. For a mid tier phone, the back and front are lace with glass that curves into the aluminum sides. It’s definitely a premium look and feel. But more importantly, it’s tough as nails. The glass is made from Gorilla Glass 4. It’s durable, tough, and can survive drops at waist height or 1 meter.
Under the glass displays a 5.2-inch Full HD Super AMOLED screen. Because the screen is an OLED, it’s very power efficient. Unlike LCDs that have a backlight panel, OLED lights up individual pixels. This saves space and battery life without sacrificing performance. The contrast is great with pure whites and deep blacks. Sharpness could be better though. Up close, there’s the tiniest bit of fuzziness. Other than that, the screen is top notch and you won’t be disappointed.
Underneath the screen houses two soft keys to the left (recent apps) and right (back button) to the tactile home button. The home button triples has a fingerprint scanner and shortcut to the camera. There are two sets of speakers: one located at the top right edge and the other in the call speaker.
The display has four modes you can choose from: Adaptive display, AMOELED Cinema, AMOLED Photo, and Basic. Adaptive display is by far the one you’ll be using the most. It enhances and exaggerates colors and is great outdoors. On the other hand, AMOLED Cinema and Photo calms those colors down. These are great modes for indoors. And finally, the Basic uses the good ol’ fashion sRGB color standard.
If you like to take your phone in the shower with you, you’ll be happy to know that the Galaxy A5 is water resistant. It’s certified to the IP68 standard, which can survive in water of 1.5 m depth for 30 minutes.
Surprisingly, the camera is really good. It’s almost great, but it lacks a few features like OIS and 4K video that’ll take this phone to another level. The front and rear cameras are 16 MP with f/1.9 lens. Despite having the same setup, the selfie camera doesn't capture the same liviness and details as the main one. Both cameras are poor in low light. While it does have a LED flash, all it manages to do is ruin the colors. But with adequate light image quality is a homerun.
The Exynos 7880 (14 nm) chipset isn’t blazingly fast, but it isn’t slow either, it’s just fast. It’s running a Octa-core 1.9 GHz CPU and Cortex-A53 GPU. On Geekbench, the Galaxy A5 scored 4,074 points, which is impressive. It can handle just about any high performance games at 1080p.
What’s really holding the chipset back is the Galaxy A5’s 3GB of RAM. With just a little more RAM, the camera and gaming capabilities would give it a substantial boost in performance.
In closing, the Galaxy A5 has a 3,000mAh battery. It’s the same battery found in the flagship Galaxy S7. With normal use, the battery can last all day easily. In a battery test, the A5 only lost 12% battery life while looping a video 90 minutes. The A5 also comes with a 9 volt charger, capable of fully charging the battery in an hour.
Now that we got the review out of the way, let’s discuss your selling options.
