If you like it then you should’ve put a case on it – Galaxy A3, A5 and A7 (2017) after a five feet drop test
Samsung lifted the veil of secrecy over the 2017 crop of its A-series phones a little before the CES show last month, or “fashionably early” as is its habit lately. The Galaxy A3, A5 and A7 (2017) are in for a pretty major redesign, and Samsung also brought on features that will be ubiquitous for 2017, like the USB-C port and IP68 water resistance, in order to futureproof the handsets at least until next year around that time.
The phones sport fine specs, and one of the best battery endurance ratings for the capacity around, but Samsung decided to bring its premium glass and metal design downstream to the midrange line this year, so you do need a protective case on them at all times.
Let’s face it, glass phones fare way worse than metal ones in drop tests, no matter the Gorilla Glass generation of the chassis, so we are rounding up some of the best cases you can currently get for the middle of the pack – the 5.2″ $400 Galaxy A5 – as it is shaping up to become the most popular one out of this year’s bunch.
Samsung A5 Clear Cover ($15)
For an official, albeit “back to basics” gel case, Samsung’s Clear Cover is pretty well priced, so we’d wager to guess it might become a hit among future Galaxy A5 (2017) owners. It showcases the phone’s pretty blue, pink, gold or black glass chassis, and provides protection at the same time, all for the equivalent of fifteen bucks, which is a steal in Samsung land.
