Features, Performance, and Reviews for the Galaxy A5 Duos

The camera function of Galaxy A5 Duos

The Galaxy A5 Duos has a 13 MP main camera that lets you take photos and videos in a quite high resolution. You may be a little dissatisfied with it in some situations, for example when you want to capture scenery in very high resolution or print out beautiful photos, but this should not be an issue you run into very often.

The Galaxy A5 Duos comes with a 5 MP pixel camera, which is a standard level. It's perfectly fine for selfies, but may be not as satisfying if you wish to take photos of large numbers of people, or make printouts.

The battery performance of Galaxy A5 Duos

The Galaxy A5 Duos's battery capacity is 2300mAh, a standard level for these types of phones.Compared to other smartphones, the Galaxy A5 Duos has a standard battery life. It should not be a problem for normal use. However, if you spend a lot of time online or playing games, you may find the battery life a bit dissatisfying.

Galaxy A5 Duos's size

The Galaxy A5 Duos is 27.4 in (69.7 mm) wide, 54.8 in (139.3 mm) tall, and 2.6 in (6.7 mm) thick.At this size, a man with large hands would be able to operate it comfortably with one hand, but it may feel a bit large for a woman with small hands.In the case of the Galaxy A5 Duos, it weighs about 4.3 oz (123 g).The weight of this phone is such that you'll barely notice it at all even when using one-handed. As such, you shouldn't have any problems using it even for long periods of time.

Both the size and weight of the Galaxy A5 Duos make it easy to hold in your hand and are unlikely to cause any trouble when you use it normally.

Galaxy A5 Duos's screen

The Galaxy A5 Duos has a 5 inch screen.The iPhone X has a big screen, which very likely won't ever trouble you. Just be aware that it's not a very good size for writing long blocks of text.

The resolution of the Galaxy A5 Duos's screen is pretty much standard. It shouldn't be a problem for normal use, but it might prove to be a bit dissatisfying for those who wish to better enjoy their photos, videos, or games.

The CPU performance of Galaxy A5 Duos

The Galaxy A5 Duos has a run-of-the-mill processing power of 1.2GHz×4(Quad core), so while you'll be able to play 2D games with ease, it's a little lacking for 3D games. Outside of games, the phone runs most things quite smoothly, but certain apps can cause a bit of slowdown.

The Galaxy A5 Duos has 2GB of RAM, so it has plenty of space. In rare cases this amount of RAM might not be sufficient, but there shouldn't be too much stress on the machine with this amount.

The overall operational speed of the Galaxy A5 Duos rates as a mid-range smartphone. While you will probably not experience much sluggishness or lag with normal use, we recommend a phone at least one tier higher if you want to enjoy games or videos.

Galaxy A5 Duos's storage capacity

The Galaxy A5 Duos has 16GB of data storage, which is plenty for taking photos, but for people who frequently shoot videos or have lots of games installed, this may not feel like enough space.

Since the Galaxy A5 Duos is compatible with SD cards, you'll be able to easily expand your storage capacity; you won't need to worry about how much internal space it has.

Overall assessment of Galaxy A5 Duos

The Galaxy A5 Duos is a relatively high-performance smartphone. If you plan to use it as your main smartphone, you may find it slightly inconvenient, but within tolerable limits.
