It is part of the new collection for 2017 . It's the Samsung Galaxy A5 2017 and it sits right in the middle of the range, above the Samsung Galaxy A3 2017 and a bit below the Samsung Galaxy A7 2017 . Despite this, the new smartphone from the Korean has some features that make it a very solid proposal, such as being prepared to resist water and dust or having a sensor for fingerprints , which are now no longer exclusively reserved for the highest-flying smartphones. Best of all, although it has everything we would ask of a current device, theSamsung Galaxy A5 2017 is not an expensive phone. Absolutely. That is why it is a team that we would recommend to all those who want to have the Samsung guarantee , but who, in turn, do not want to spend a fortune on the purchase of a new smartphone. Here are the five key features of the Samsung Galaxy A5 2017 .
1. A large screen, with HD resolution
We have told you that it is a mid-range terminal, but today, this label no longer implies that the device has a small or poor-quality screen. In fact, the Samsung Galaxy A5 2017 planted a panel of 5.2 inches and a resolution FullHD 1920 x 1080 pixels . It works through the efficient Super AMOLED technology and enjoys a density of 424 dots per inch. To all this, it should also be noted that it is protected with a layer of 2.5D Corning Gorilla Glass 4 glass to avoid accidental bumps and scratches.
2. A super camera for taking selfies
If you are one of those who cannot live without their selfies, the Samsung Galaxy A5 2017 can become a bedside option. And it is that for the occasion, Samsung has decided to dress this device with a 16 megapixel main camera and a secondary camera , that of selfies, with an identical capacity. This will allow selfie lovers to take really good shots and capture videos in FullHD quality . In addition, to facilitate selfies, users will enjoy a floating button to shoot in a more comfortable way.
3. A very powerful heart
Another front that Samsung has worked hard on is power. And I know that the Samsung Galaxy A5 2017 works through a 1.9 GHz octa-core processor , capable of combining its performance with 3 GB of RAM . To this advantageous capacity we must add a good 3,000 milliamp battery , which should provide us with a range of more than one day at full capacity.
4. The fingerprint sensor
All members of the new 2017 A series are equipped with one. It is the fingerprint sensor , a functionality that will offer users the possibility of identifying themselves in a faster way, but above all more secure, activating certain functions or even making payments online without having to enter their personal data each time. We will find the fingerprint reader located on the start button of the computer, just at the bottom of the screen.
5. Water and dust resistance
And we finish with another of the great advantages of this smartphone. Like the rest of its family companions, the Samsung Galaxy A5 2017 is presented as a water and dust resistant device . For this, it has an IP68 certification that will allow you to use the phone in the rain, in the shower and even resist accidental falls into the pool.
To all this, it should be noted that the Samsung Galaxy A5 2017 is already on sale in Spain for 430 euros , although operators such as Movistar or Yoigo already have it in their ranks with discounts and payment facilities.
