Samsung Galaxy A5 Duos Review

Key features

  • Good front and rear cameras
  • Premium build and design
  • Available microSD card slot
  • Dedicated active noise cancellation mic


The Samsung Galaxy A5 Duos is Samsung’s answer to the many Chinese phone makers who have turned to producing affordable smartphones with a premium feel and look. This phone also comes with a premium feel, but it does not cost as high as the flagship models in the S series. This smartphone comes with two nano-SIM card slots and LTE connectivity which is a big plus. It also comes with 16GB of internal storage capacity and if that is not sufficient, you can use the secondary SIM card slot to expand this storage space with a microSD card. This also means that you can’t have both hence you will have to choose between using the slot for expanding the storage or an extra SIM card.

What is the screen resolution ?

When it comes to the display, the Samsung Galaxy A5 Duos comes with a 5 inch Super AMOLED touchscreen. This screen is large, covering about 71% of the front face. It is capable of displaying media with a resolution of 720 x 1280, which means that you will be able to achieve a resolution of approximately 294 pixels per inch. This screen is a multi-touch screen that can take input from multiple fingers at the same time.

What is the battery life ?

This smartphone comes with a 2300 mAh non-removable lithium ion battery that delivers decent performance for normal day to day use. However, this is not one of the top features of this phone since it merely produces enough juice for a normal day. With that said, it’s not lousy and will be able to serve you seamlessly for a whole day.

How long does its battery last?

As mentioned above, the 2300 mAh battery in the Galaxy A5 will give you decent performance. For ordinary non-intensive use, this battery will last long enough to take you through the day without the need for recharging. In the non-stop video playing test, the battery was able to last for 7 hours and 42 minutes before you need to recharge.

What is the sound and video quality ?

One of the main selling points of the Samsung Galaxy A5 Duos is the camera. It has a 13MP primary camera that is capable of recording 1080p videos at 30 frames per second. If you want a faster frame rate, then you will have to consider getting one of the flagship models. The secondary camera comes with a 5MP lens, which also records decent videos. The built-in speaker is loud, but the audio quality is not the best. If you need better quality, you will have to use the included pair of earphones which are quite impressive. The sound quality in the calls is also quite impressive thanks to the dedicated noise cancellation mic.

Conclusion: Should I buy it?

This phone is a well-rounded phone that will be a good fit for anyone who wants a premium look and feel without going for the flagship models. However, there are cheaper devices like the OnePlus One that give you quite a bargain.

  • Pros:
    Good premium design impressive cameras lightweight active noise cancellation
  • Cons:
    Can’t use both the microSD card and the extra SIM
Our score:
4 / 5
