recently admitted that it was too slow to respond to the rapid shifts happening
in the industry. Last couple of quarters were not good for the company as it
lost a good chunk of market share to the new players. Better late than never,
it has realized the mistake and is now gradually revamping its portfolio with the
posh-looking metallic smartphones. After the metal-rimmed Samsung Galaxy Alpha
and Note 4, the company has now introduced a pair of all-metal smartphones –
the Samsung Galaxy A3 and A5. They look good, and are priced affordable, making
them desirable options for the youngsters. In case you are planning to pick one
of them, let’s have a quick look over their features in order to decide which
one better suits your need.
Samsung Galaxy A3 vs Galaxy A5
Design and display
Unlike the Galaxy Alpha, which had a metal frame with plastic back, the new smartphones get full-metallic body made of aluminium. They have unibody design, and are noticeably slim. Pick either of them and you have looker in your hand. Both the smartphones can be availed in six colors – black, white, gold,silver, blossom pink and light blue. Since the back cover is not removable, the slots are embedded on the right side.
Samsung has equipped both the Galaxy A3 and A5 with Super AMOLED displays, but with different sizes and resolutions. While the Samsung Galaxy A3 features a 4.5-inch panel with 960x540 pixel resolution, the Galaxy A5 gets a bigger 5-inch display with HD (1,280x720 pixel) resolution.
UI and configuration
Both the smartphones will ship with Android 4.4 KitKat, supercharged with Samsung’s own TouchWiz UI. Besides regular software tweaks, Samsung has enhanced the UI for these smartphones with some additional features, like new themes, new touch sound and a voice related feature called Wise Voice, which adjusts the volume of the device according to its distance from your face.
Both the devices are powered by similar processing units i.e. 1.2GHz quad-core, but while the Galaxy A3 gets only 1GB of RAM, the Galaxy A5 gets 2GB of it. So, in case you have plans to play heavy games on your next smartphone, consider the later. For storage, you get 16GB built-in memory in both the devices, which can be expanded up 64GB via microSD cards.
Keeping up with the trend, Samsung has launched the phones with a lot of selfie-focused features. The 5-megapixel front camera can capture wide-angle selfies of 100 degrees in portrait mode and 120 degrees in landscape. It can be triggered with voice, or start the 3-second countdown by holding your palm in front of the snapper. It also has beauty mode, which helps you look better in selfies.
Just like the Galaxy Note 4, the rear cameras of these smartphones can also be used to take selfies. The Samsung Galaxy A3 ships with an 8-megapixel AF shooter, while the A5 gets a better 13-megapixel lens.
Connectivity and battery
The smartphones are packed with powerful connectivity features including 3G, 4G LTE Cat4 (selected markets), GPS, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth v4.0 with ANT+ and BLE. Keeping the Galaxy A3 and A5 juiced up are 1,900mAh and 2,300mAh li-ion batteries respectively.
The all-metal smartphones not just look great, but also pack great set of features to suffice consumers looking for a mid-range smartphone. The Samsung Galaxy A5 is certainly a better option out of two in all aspects. Better primary camera, better resolution and additional amount of RAM make it a winner here hands down. However, if you would like save some bucks by compromising a bit on features, the Galaxy A3 isn’t bad either.
