Found 3rd Jul 2017
Hi. Im looking to upgrade from my samsung s6. i mainly use Facebook/Email/twitter/camera and video on my phone. I was looking at going to the S8 but someone mentioned A5. Ive been happy with samsung since my s2 and would like to stay with samsung. Im not that technically minded so unsure 'what the differences' are technically on both phones. Which should I go for. Im happy with my S6 but battery isnt lasting and with going to Florida shortly I want to be able to use as camera, plus some deals I have seen are cheaper than my current deal.. Help me... TIA

I got my Mum the A5 2016 version and its a top phone. Significantly cheaper than the S7/S8 and it looks the part too (glass back etc). The A5 2017 would be better as it's waterproof etc, but it is a good phone.

My daughter has the S8 and she says the camera is stunning. I have seen a few photos she has taken with it and they are pretty amazing (high quality image, vibrant colours etc)

You can see all the phone specs on GSMArena

The screen on the A5 is only 1920x1080 pixels

The S8 screen is 2960x1440 so far higher quality.

The S8 has 64Gb of memory, the A5 only 32Gb and so on

Like all things you get what you pay for.

I was hoping this was a car question. I hope your crops wither.
