"Great phone. Bought this phone in January and think it’s great. Have had no problems with it whatsoever, battery life is really good, does everything that the more expensive models do. Would 100% recommend to anyone."


All Galaxy A3/A5 phones come with Samsung Level Active headphones. Don't get caught up in wires and cables. Flexible silicone ensures a tight grip and maximum comfort at all times. And they're fully splash resistant, so don't worry about breaking a sweat at the gym or training outdoors.
