We agree that Samsung’s Galaxy A series is not as popular as the S series, but we suggest you to give these handsets a chance, because they come with some good specifications and features. Today we’re going to talk about the Galaxy A5 (2016) and Galaxy A7 (2016), two devices that were released in December 2015.


The Galaxy A5 2016 measures 144.8x71x7.3mm and weights 155 grams. On the other hand, the Galaxy A7 2016 measures 151.5×74.1×7.3mm and weights 172 grams. The back panels of both devices are protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 4 and they’re available in four variants of colors: Black, White, Gold and Pink.


The Galaxy A5 2016 has a Super AMOLED display of 5.2-inch that supports a resolution of 1920×1080 pixels at 424 ppi and it’s protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 4. The Galaxy A7 2016 features a Super AMOLED display of 5.5-inch with the same resolution, but it results in a lower pixel density of 401 ppi.

Processors, Graphics Cards & RAM

The Galaxy A5 2016 comes with a Qualcomm MSM8939 Snapdragon 615 chipset, an octa-core Cortex A53 processor, an Adreno 405 graphics card and 2GB of RAM. The Galaxy A7 2016 has the same chipset and processor and graphics card, but it houses 3GB of RAM.


The Galaxy A5 2016 and Galaxy A7 2016 have been released with an internal storage of 16GB, but it can be expanded up to 128GB using a microSD card.


Both devices come with a primary camera of 13MP (found on the rear side of the handset) that supports an aperture of f/1.9, 28mm and has features such as geo-tagging, face detection, panorama, HDR, LED flash, autofocus, OIS, while the secondary camera is 5MP, and it’s placed on the front side of the device.


The Galaxy A5 2016 sports a non-removable battery of 2900 mAh, while the Galaxy A7 2016 has a more powerful battery of 3300 mAh because the screen is larger and requires more power.


As you can see, both devices come almost with the same specifications. The only big difference that you will see between these two devices is the display size.
