elegant Qualcomm Snapdragon 410

The Samsung Galaxy A5 relies on a 64-bit elegant Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 chipset and 2GB of Random-Access Memory (RAM) to go things along. There's a quad-core 1.2Giga Hertz (GHz) Cortex-A53 processor and the Adreno 306 GPU.

Overall, this package doesn't really expand all that much on the Snapdragon 400 abilities of recent but as developers optimize their apps for 64-bit architecture and Lollipop reaches more devices, the Galaxy A5 should see a speed benefit.

So let's dive correct into the scores. As we always do, we will be focusing first on the overall and Central Processing Units (CPU) benchmarks. Starting with GeekBench 3 and AnTuTu 5 where the Samsung Galaxy A5 showed middling performance falling slightly behind its main competition in the first test and slightly ahead of it in AnTuTu 5.

Baseimprint Operating System (OS) II focuses on the Central Processing Units (CPU) mostly. It gives an overall score and breaks down Central Processing Units (CPU) performance by single and multi-core. Baseimprint Operating System (OS) II shows the Galaxy A5 and its Snapdragon 410 chip as a middling to poor performer, outclassed by most of its rivals.

Next up are the GPU benchmarks aiming to put the Adreno 306 performance in context. GFXBench has two 1080p tests - 2.7 T-Rex and 3.0 Manhattan - in both onclassy screen (720p) and offclassy screen (1080p) fashion showing the test framerates.

Keep in mind that anything below 30fps isn't smooth and the Galaxy A5 scored just that. None of the fps we saw from its Adreno 306 are impressive and it's clear that the Adreno 405 found in the Snapdragon 615 is much better at demanding graphics.

Baseimprint X shows a gaming score that's slightly lower than that of the Snapdragon 615 found in the Desire 820.

Kraken 1.1 by Mozilla reflects the JavaScript capabilities of the Samsung Galaxy A5 while Rightware's BrowserMark 2.1 offers an evaluation of its HyperText Markup Language (HTML) 5 abilities. In Kraken 1.1 the Galaxy A5 took a solid lead over many of its competitors, which could be attributed to fine software optimization as most of its rivals in the table have equal or even higher-discontinue chipsets.

BrowserMark was a similar deal with a fine overall score, besting that of the HTC Desire 820 with Snapdragon 615 and 816 with Snapdragon 400.

The Samsung Galaxy A5 is no speed demon and neither is its chipset, despite the fancy 64-bit architecture it flaunts. All the benchmarks show a middling to lower discontinue performance in raw CPU/GPU and JavaScript/HMTL 5 tasks. But that's not what smartphones are all about. Sure the Galaxy A5 isn't fit to handle the most graphic-intensive games but it is perfectly adequate for day to day tasks of any kind.

As we reported the user interface doesn't stutter and underperform and you could easily like this phone as your perfectly average midrange daily driver. If you want something more upper-class then you might want to see at devices with at least a Snapdragon 615 chip inside.
