On the imaging front, the Galaxy A5 (2017) and Galaxy A7 (2017) smartphones comes with front and rear 16-megapixel cameras, which as per Samsung are now more stable with accurate autofocus, resulting in vibrant and clear photos and selfie even in low-light conditions. 

Samsung has included a floating camera button which allows users to easily snap a high-resolution selfie just by tapping anywhere on the screen. It uses the display as a front flash for bright pictures. The UI of camera is improved as well, including easy swipe to quickly change modes or instant filters to activate picture effects.

Users can leverage modes such as the Food Mode, to optimize photos and enhance the color of images,” details Samsung.
