    Now that the Samsung Galaxy S7 is in the process of being replaced by the S8, those who always wanted an S7 need not worry. The Samsung Galaxy A5 is, I believe, something like ninety per cent of an S7, at much less than ninety per cent of its price. Read more

    • Like a much more expensive Samsung phone, all the parts just kind of work together, water resistant, USB Type-C
    • Gamers after fastest processor may not be satisfied

    At full price there's not much to recommend the jack of all trades, A5. However, it's already available at $150 discount and that makes it great value. But the fingerprint reader can prove annoying. Read more

    • Good all-rounder, Already hugely discounted
    • Fingerprint reader is temperamental
