The Samsung Galaxy A 2017 edition is designed for the unique demands of today's business world and features the best defence-grade mobile security from Samsung.

Samsung's S series, their flagship range, boasts an IP68 rating for the phones' dust- and water-resistant qualities. And now, for the first time, they've extended this rating to their Galaxy A series. This means you can take your phone with you wherever you go - business trips, 4x4 outings in the desert, overnight flights and your weekly Park Run – secure in the knowledge that your phone is safe and sound.

Samsung has expanded the storage on the Galaxy A series phones, so you'll have plenty of space for all the photos and videos you'll be taking. The phones also offer a longer battery life than any of Samsung's previous mid-range devices, and the Always On Display feature means you can check the time and date at a glance, without waking up your phone when it's on standby, which will save you battery power.

Display

The Galaxy A series boast the best display panels in the mid-range smartphone market to date. The Galaxy A3 comes with a 4.7-inch, HD (1280x720), Super AMOLED display with a pixel density of 312ppi while its bigger brothers, the A5 and A7, are packing Full HD (1920x1080), Super AMOLED displays at 5.2- and 5.7-inches with pixel densities of 424ppi and 401ppi, respectively. 

And thanks to an almost bezel-less design, the viewing experience is deeply immersive and breathtaking. The Super AMOLED panels on all three devices provide high contrast levels, deep, inky blacks, and strong viewing angles.

Security 

Each of the three A series comes standard with Samsung Knox 2.7, a defense-grade mobile security platform. Trusted by organisations around the world to hold some of their most sensitive data, Knox provides multi-layered protection to ensure your business data is secure.

The A series easy and secure fingerprint scanner technology lets you unlock your device, access business data safely and log into websites and apps quickly, while the phones also introduce Secure Folder, a new security feature for both individuals and smaller enterprises. This isolated folder adds an extra layer of security to keep your private and personal information safely encrypted.

Camera

Samsung has equipped the trio of devices with a 13-megapixel camera sensor with an aperture of f/1.9, optical image stabilisation (except the A3), and support for Full HD (1080p) video recording at 30FPS, alongside an LED flash.

The A series standard camera app is identical to the one found on the Galaxy S6 and comes with various pre-installed shooting modes: Auto, Pro, Panorama, Continuous shot, HDR, Night, and more can be downloaded from the Galaxy App store. And the Quick Launch function, which allows the user to open the camera app by double-pressing the home button is one of the phones best new functions.

The devices are also packing a second, wide-angle, 5-megapixel sensor with an aperture of f/1.9 and come with shooting modes like Wide Selfie, Continuous shot, Night, and more.
