Digit Verdict: Samsung Galaxy A5 2016 Edition Review

By Prasid Banerjee

The Samsung Galaxy A5 is amongst the best designed phones in the market, but at Rs. 29,400, it is just too expensive to recommend. It's performance isn't comparable to its competitors and you would be better of buying an HTC One A9 or the much cheaper Nexus 5X.
