Pro’s Notes
By Michel Baril
While the Samsung Galaxy A5 might be a mid-range phone, it sports features normally reserved for high-end devices. For example, it’s water and dust resistant, has a super bright AMOLED display and a 256-gigabyte expandable memory. Mobile game enthusiasts will like the Game Launcher feature that lets you block notifications and save your results. For the camera, a 16-megapixel sensor is located at both front and back, for results that are as impressive in selfie mode as they are in standard mode. What’s more, the battery life while in use is really excellent. Go ahead and play or snap photos without draining the charge too quickly!
