Both the Samsung Galaxy A5 and A7 ship in pretty standard-looking rectangular cardboard boxes. While the A5 arrives in a blue coloured box, the A7 comes in a fawn-hued packaging. The boxes feature respective images and monikers of the Galaxy A5 and A7. The Galaxy A7 sports a larger 5.5-inch display, as compared to the A5’s 5.2-inch screen, so naturally, the A7’s box is bigger than that of the A5’s. The lids can be taken off to reveal the smartphones, which rest atop plastic trays.


Box contents do not differ for both the smartphones. Lifting the plastic trays off, you will find the documentation, a SIM-ejection tools, 2-pin wall chargers rated at 2A, micro-USB to USB cables and pairs of in-ear headphones.

However, priced at Rs 29,400 and Rs 33,400, respectively, they’re not exactly smartphone you can buy without giving a second thought.
