Samsung has announced its new Galaxy A series which include the A5 and A3 devices at CES 2017. They will be available for purchase sometime around the end of January as we lie in wait for the announcement of their Galaxy S8 flagship which is scheduled to hit the shelves later this year.

We are going to compare the latest models to the current device that bears flagship status, namely the Galaxy S7 in terms of their most important characteristics such as camera, display and the hardware used for them.


Display wise, the Galaxy A5 trumps them all sporting a 5.2 inch display while the S7 packs a 5.1 inch one followed shortly after by the A3 at 4.7. The trio features an always-on display which enables its owners to view notifications without having to turn on the screen thus saving some important battery life. They all come equipped with Super AMOLED technology with amazing resolutions which confer crisp colors and great viewing angles.


Samsung’s A5 packs a 16 megapixel camera setup present both in front and back whilst the A3 has a lower resolution packing a 13 megapixel back snapper and 8 megapixel front. The S7 is undoubtedly the best camera phone coming equipped with a 12 megapixel rear and 5 megapixel front aided by phase detection autofocus and OIS as well as Auto HDR for the front.


The Galaxy A series devices are powered by Exynos octa-core chips along with 3GB of RAM for the A5 and 2GB for its counterpart. The S7 is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon or an octa-core Exynos depending where it is bought. It has 4GB of RAM with 32 or 64 GB internal storage variants.

Samsung hasn’t revealed its prices for the galaxy A devices but the cost of the S7 comes at around 599 pounds. No matter which phone choice you make rest assured that they are all great devices which should be your top priority.
