Water and dust resistant

The A5’s body is IP68 dust and water-resistant, so it thrives in tough conditions and is ideal for travelling or an active lifestyle. Discover a phone you can rely on in even the toughest conditions.

Fingerprint technology

Feel extra security and convenience with the A5’s fingerprint recognition feature. Lock and unlock your phone in a flash and know that no one else can get access to your device but you.

Amazing 16MP camera

With its 16MP front camera’s bright display doubling as a flash, the A5 allows you to capture sharp results even in low light. The floating shutter is also optimised for a better grip so snaps stay blur-free.

Anytime Upgrade Flex contracts - choose how you spread the cost of buying your new phone

  • Spread the cost of buying your phone with a 0% APR representative phone credit contract and a contract length you choose
  • With our 36 month contracts you get our lowest monthly payments, and you can flex your tariff up and down each month if you want more or less data
  • With Anytime Upgrade Flex contracts you can upgrade at any time, just pay off your phone credit balance
  • Once you’ve paid off the credit contract on your phone, you’ll pay less each month as you’ll only be paying for your airtime
