There is ample onboard storage of 16 GB for keeping photos, videos and other files. You will be able to expand storage by up to 128GB more using a microSD card.

Performance and OS

A significantly more powerful octa-core Exynos processor, which is clocked at 1.6 GHz, sees to the heavy-lifting on Samsung Galaxy A5 (2016). This means it should be able to deliver impressive multitasking.

However, the 64-bit chip is paired with a smaller 2 GB of RAM, compared to the 3GB on the Galaxy A7 (2016). The smartphone boots Android 5.1 Lollipop operating system – a significant improvement on the 4.4 KitKat OS on its predecessor.

Other Features

Samsung Galaxy A5 (2016) will be equipped with a significantly larger 2900mAh battery, which most certainly improves on the 15 hours of talk time offered by the 2300mAh juicer on the original device.
