Samsung Galaxy J5 (2017) Review

samsung galaxy j5 2016

It is time to use a classic yet very appealing smartphone, Samsung Galaxy J5 that offers solid performance without burdening your budget.

How does it look like?

Samsung Galaxy J5 gives a classic look. Very slim body and weight up to 146g. Super Amoled display with 357.72 cd/m2 brightness is sufficient in extreme lighting.

Irrespective of having plastic frame, offering the latest version of A5 at much low price, makes Galaxy J5 easily acceptable. It has plain matt finish and its curved sides prevent any kind of slip from your hand.

Galaxy J5 looks similar to Galaxy S5, the only difference is created by the presence of front facing flash.


A 5 inch display is enough to view photos, videos etc and it easily fits in your pocket.  J5’s screen has 1280 x 720 resolution with 294 px/inch pixel density. Images on J5’s wide screen look fabulous. Getting an LCD screen at this piece of rate is the best.

Ultimate 4G experience while saving data

Browse endlessly while saving data. Stream or download videos, songs, movies or shop online, with its ultra data saving feature, J5 limits the data use by the external apps, hence offers you the cost – effective 4G experience.

J5 features the entire connectivity options – 4G LTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, USB and headphone portal. It also gives access to A-GPS, Beidou positioning and Glonass.


J5 has 13 megapixels camera with 1080p HD video recording. Front camera includes 5 megapixel sensor that is perfect for selfies and video chit – chat.

Battery Life

Another stupendous property of J5 is its unexpectedly long battery life. The phone comes with 2,600 mAh battery that can allow uninterrupted talk time of 18 hours and it is sufficient for use for two days. Right here, Galaxy J5 outstands other typical smartphones that lack in offering adequate battery life.


Featuring quad core 1.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 processor with 1.5 GB RAM, however doesn’t make it the fastest phone, but it is sufficient at this price. Android 5.1.1 based TouchWiz offers seamless and quick performance, in fact apps also work very well.

Probably, its 8GB built-in storage is not a new thing, it doesn’t offer much space for apps, music and videos.  You can extend memory up to 128 GB by using microSD memory card, still primary 8GB memory is out of comfort somehow.

J5 is not perfectly fit for playing the newest games because of its potential to manage only 113 frames, it is a budgetary smartphone. It allows to play simple games and candy crush can also be played pretty easily.
