    Introducing the Samsung Galaxy A5

    With a slim, metal body, the A5 can sit comfortably in your pocket. Take selfies and make video calls on the 5 megapixel front camera. Watch movies, play games and much more on the 5 inch Super AMOLED touchscreen display. And enjoy quicker browsing and multitasking thanks to the 1.2 GHz processor.

    Enjoy entertainment on the big screen

    The Samsung Galaxy A5 has a 5 inch HD Super AMOLED adaptive display. Perfect for browsing, watching and playing, in any light condition. It also has all the best Galaxy features you're used to, with a powerful processor and advanced camera. And whether you're multitasking, playing games or browsing, the 1.2 GHz Quad-Core processor makes sure everything runs smoothly.

    Take pictures from the front and back

    With a 5 megapixel front-facing camera and a 13 megapixel rear camera, the A5 has every angle covered. Take your selfies to the next level, with a range of special settings, including the Wide Selfie function, for even better group pics with your friends and family. And the 13 megapixel rear camera comes with Auto Focus and a flash LED light, so you can capture all the action in great detail.

    Look good with the slim, metal design

    The A5 is thin, light and great to look at. With a full metal unibody design, it weighs just 123g. And the slim 6.7mm body makes it easy to slip into your pocket, so you can take it with you wherever you go. Despite its slender frame, you'll have plenty of room to save all your favourite content, with up to 64GB of storage when you add a Micro SD card.

    Clear sound wherever you go

    The A5 features adjustable audio, which adapts and enhances sound based on where you are. And with its powerful processor and enhanced connectivity, the Samsung Galaxy A5 will never let you down. Whether you're browsing through your favourite sites, streaming movies, listening to music or flicking through your apps, you'll always have a seamless experience.

    Get this device on O2 Refresh

    O2 Refresh is a different type of contract that splits your Pay Monthly bill into two parts. The Device Plan is the cost of your phone or tablet, and Airtime Plan is the cost of your data, texts and minutes. Once you've paid off your device, it's yours. And your bill automatically halves. You can pocket the cash, or put the money you save towards a new wearable or some extra data.

    Why doesn't this phone come with a charger?

    O2 is working to try and reduce waste. And as 70% of people already have a USB charger at home, we've decided to not include one with your phone. If you do need a charger you can add one after choosing your tariff. O2 does not make money from selling the charger separately.
