Samsung Galaxy J5 2017
If you’re looking for your next smartphone, then it’s highly likely you’ll have considered Samsung, as they are, without doubt, one of the world’s most trusted smartphone manufacturers.
You may be worried that you’ll have to pay through the roof for a Samsung handset, but the brand is also well known for making some of the best affordable handsets on the market.
Of these affordable handsets, the Samsung Galaxy J5 is a stellar choice for anyone who wants the Samsung name but not the high price tag of a premium flagship smartphone.
The new version features some much-needed upgrades to deliver a handset that looks and feels like a high-end phone but is easy to use and a little more simplistic than some of the more expensive Samsung options.
Samsung Galaxy J5 Design & Display
The 2017 reboot of the Samsung Galaxy J5 is a serious upgrade from the older version in terms of design; it resembles the newer Samsung handsets with a more premium feel while retaining a pleasantly simple style.
The sleek and sophisticated aluminium body with a glass front panel is everything that one would expect from Samsung. The fingerprint scanner is conveniently placed and the compact size makes it extremely comfortable to use.
Unfortunately, there isn’t any Gorilla Glass reinforcement with this handset, so we would definitely recommend investing in a decent protective case and screen protector.
When it comes to the display on the J5, the front panel is 5.2 inches of Super AMOLED technology; its a capacitive touchscreen with a 16:9 aspect ratio and a 720 x 1280 resolution. It delivers a decent viewing experience for its price, with an impressive level of brightness, even in the brightest sunlight.
Samsung Galaxy J5 Audio
When it comes to audio experience the Samsung Galaxy J5 isn’t the loudest handset on the market, but when you plug in a pair of decent headphones you’ll quickly notice a marked improvement.
Overall sound quality is rich and well balanced.
Samsung Galaxy J5 Camera
The Samsung Galaxy J5 features a 13MP rear camera, much like it’s predecessor, but with some serious improvements to deliver photographs that are clear, detailed and well balanced when it comes to colour and contrast.
Overall the camera performance is astonishingly good for what some would deem a budget handset - we were especially surprised at the strength of this camera in low lighting.
Round the front, there’s another 13MP camera that performs just as well, so you don’t need to worry about your selfies failing you.
Samsung Galaxy J5 Features & Performance
There’s 16GB of internal storage with 2GB of RAM on the J5, which is plenty of room, but it is expandable with the help of a micro-SD card should you require more room for your favourite apps, files and photos.
The handset runs on the impressive dual-core Exynos 7870 processor to deliver an incredibly fast smartphone experience that won’t let you down.
The newer version of the J5 also includes a much better battery, that will easily see you throughout a day’s intensive use before you need to power up again.
