At present there are any number of phones that leave you without any cash to splash; the iPhone X comes to mind immediately, followed by the Samsung Galaxy Note8.
But, fear not! There is an alternative.
Let me introduce you to the Samsung Galaxy A5, a great phone that won’t break the bank.
The A5 has been with us since the end of 2014 and in that time has been through a number of refreshments; subtle changes to the design and the internals upgraded with the latest and greatest.
The latest A5 features a 1080p FHD 5.2 inch Super AMOLED display which is fantastic, with great viewing angles and clarity; so watching YouTube on the go won’t be an issue.
Pictures look fantastic as well, they are always sharp and bursting with colour. And the 16MP front-facing camera leads to the best selfies. Not to mention, you’ll be able to upload those photos to Instagram in a flash as the A5 supports the latest superfast 4G networks and 5.0Ghz Wi-Fi.
Did I mention that it is water resistant? It can survive at a depth of 1.5 metres for 30 minutes, easily enough for day to day water encounters.
This phone is perfect for anyone who just wants a great phone at a good price. You can pick up the Samsung Galaxy A5 from Harvey Norman for $499 at the time of writing.
