Samsung Galaxy A5 (2016) Camera Review

by Linus 7

Just before I finish up testing the device, I took the camera for a spin, took quite a few pictures and as always, I am asking you to share your opinion in the comment section below the video.
The Galaxy A5 uses a 13MP shooter with OIS and a bright f/1.9 aperture. However, the sensor has a 4:3 aspect ratio if you want to take pictures at the maximum resolution. 
Just before we start with the actual camera samples, let’s take a look at the camera app as a lot of people have requested this in the previous reviews. 
What you are getting is a typical Samsung camera app we’ve seen on lots of phones. On the left there is settings and options toolbar and everything is pretty much self-explanatory. 
On the right side you can access your recent photos, shoot videos, take pictures, switch cameras and last but not least select different modes. Also, you can download a few extra ones but what I actually missed was the slow-motion video mode.
Finally, the shutter speed is really fast even in lower-lit situations.
Allright, let’s take a look at the camera samples. I’m going to tell what I think about the image quality in the full review, so you may want to wait for that. As always, sit back, relax and see you soon.

    What the hell is this?! an article about camera that tells us to wait for camera samples in a separate article?!!
    guess the site pays by No. of articles.

    • Yeah, this is one weird article. 🙂

    • Hi, the purpose of the article is to watch the video where I spent a significant amount of time making it, taking camera shoots (also got a little bit cold because of the cold weather). Also, the phone was bought by me, with my own money and absolutely no one paid for it. Stay tuned to the TechLineHD Youtube (my personal channel). I constantly share my content on Gizmochina.

        Hi Linus,
        Thanks for the clarification, didn’t mean to demean your work.
        However, I assume you are in China, and so am I, and I am guessing so are a good portion of your readers.
        But I cannot see your video without turning on a VPN.
        Perhaps in the future you could consider hosting your video on servers accessible for readers in CN?
        Just a thought

          you need to stop assuming stuff. Might get you into some hairy situations, like assuming that girl you’re hitting on is a girl and not Caitlin Jenner Post Operation. lol

            yea? well your mom’s a whore. lol

  • The photos looked crisp and clear, some looked to be toned a little too red or purple, maybe it was just the white balance, would like to see a couple more pictures in other settings, like the chain one that was shown, that was a nice picture. The video looked nice in some takes and blurry in some others but maybe it was the wind that day, not sure. Thanks for sharing.
