Samsung Galaxy A5 2017: Unboxing and First Impressions

Samsung has refreshed its Galaxy A series line for this year, we will be taking a look at the Galaxy A5 2017 in this post. The full review is to come very soon but before that, we will be doing this unboxing experience and first impressions article. Right off the bat, the phone is built quite well with premium materials all over. Some new additions for this year’s iteration include an IP68 Dust and Water resistance and also a USB-C port. Let’s discuss more about the Galaxy A5 (2017) below.

The new Galaxy A5 (2017) from Samsung fits nicely between the rather large Galaxy A7 (2017) and also, relatively, the smaller A3 (2017). We think this is the perfect smartphone for many users due to its manageable dimensions and adequate specifications. We have the Gold Sand colored Galaxy A5 (2017) with us. Keep in mind, our variant is meant for the Pakistani region so unboxing experiences may change slightly in other areas.

Unboxing the Samsung Galaxy A5 2017:

Galaxy A5 (2017)

As soon as you lift off the top half of the Galaxy A5 (2017) box, you are greeted with the phone itself. After taking the phone out and the sticker that explains some key details, you will immediately feel how Samsung has stuck with the best materials for its A series. A full glass back and front bridged with an all metal ring. The back is slightly curved for a better fit in your hand.

Over the previous A5 generation, the Galaxy A5 (2017) is more rounded off and is less sharp. The whole metal ring around the phone is rounded off hence giving you something solid to hold on. The Gold Sand color is not your run of the mill gold but its leaning towards champagne. Also, the camera bump is no longer there. You can put the phone on a flat surface and it would not wobble.
