Verdict:

The first and the very reason you’ll buy the A5 and A7 is for its look, build quality and the screen it offers and despite that, for a normal consumer there might be a lot of compromises with this phone; for example its price. Despite Samsung claiming that the Samsung Galaxy A5, Galaxy A7 2016 Launched in Nepal will to be mid-range, the phone’s cost will be above average to what we Nepalese customers are used to. But taking into consideration of all the specs, it might be feasible to have that price tag, but there are still other better options like the Nexus 5X, OnePlus Two and even the Galaxy S5 for what it offers. Also as a phone that is released on 2016, both of these phones run on 5.1.1 lollipop, this is where people cringe over Samsung phones. Although Samsung has promised the Marshmallow update, it is a long way till we get it.

And if you’re wondering what else you could be missing on such an expensive phone, let me remind you there’s no LED notification. So, you never know if you have a new notification and you have to unlock your phone every time to check for notifications. Also, the phone is running on last year’s mid-range chipset Exynos 7580 which is only a very decent performer but results in a great battery life. Overall, if you want an average performing phone with a great AMOLED screen, flagship build and a sturdy design this might be the phone for you.

The Samsung Galaxy A5, Galaxy A7 2016 Launched here in Nepal are priced at Rs.48,490 and Rs.55,490 respectively. The Galaxy A5, Galaxy A7 will be available in the Nepali Market starting this Week.
