Review of Samsung Galaxy A5 at a Glance:-

Galaxy A5 is second A series phone from Samsung After A3. For the mid range premium phones Samsung use to "A" Series. Handset comes up with 5.0 inches Super AMOLED screen, v4.4.4 (KitKat) OS, 13 MP primary camera with Sony Exmor RS IMX135 sensor, 2GB RAM, 16 GB internal memory where memory can be expended up to 64 GB with help of SD card and 2300 mAh Battery.
It has metal-framed compact design with 6.7mm thin body crafted around the edge. The back cover isn't removable. Lets come to the camera which is 13 Megapixel able to capture decent quality picture with good detail, the phone focuses well even in low light, 5 MP front cam also has decent selfie photography. 

The Qualcomm MSM8916 Snapdragon 410 processor with this phone seems somehow older but 2 GB RAM with this makes a decent combination for lag free smooth user experience. The screen is Super AMOLED protected with Corning Gorilla Glass 4 is obviously better than the IPS Display produces sharp images while it has 294 ppi display density. The 2300 mAh battery is not able to give huge battery backup which can run roughly for 15 – 25 hours depending on the use.
