Samsung Galaxy A5 (2017): unboxing and first look

The Samsung Galaxy A5 (2017) has just arrived in our office and it’s time to unbox it and take a quick first look at this attractive combination of glass and metal, a phone more affordable than a flagship, but looking exactly like one.
The Galaxy A5 (2017) will be the right phone for a lot of people: it features a 5.2-inch display, which is a very comfortable, golden mean size that is neither too small, nor too large. It’s also more affordable than high-end iPhones and Pixels, an important advantage in a world where many people find that more affordable phones are good enough for them.
The A5 (2017) comes with an efficient chip, promising great battery lifeYet, the Galaxy A5 (2017) makes a few compromises in the performance and camera departments, the two key areas of differentiation these days. A quick glance through the specs reveals the welcome presence of the Samsung Exynos 7 Octa 7880, a chip that might be less powerful than the top crop, but one built on a modern, 14nm manufacturing process, ensuring it has top-notch power efficiency and promising to help achieve great battery life on the new A5.
We will look explore the Galaxy A5 (2017) in more detail in our full review that is coming up soon, but right now let’s focus on unboxing this sleek new handset and looking at what is in the box. The first thing you notice is that you get an unremarkable white box (nothing like the fancy black box of the S7 with its elegant magnetic closure). Let’s peek inside:
