Samsung Galaxy J5 review

 

This budget Galaxy is low in price but high in quality

Excellent Super AMOLED display; Lengthy battery life; Cheap

Camera has disappointing issues with exposure; Average performance

The third-gen Moto G just retains its place in our budget smartphone affections thanks to its classier looks and build quality as well as its clean version of Android and waterproofing. Even so, the J5 has a lot going for it and is a very good...

Samsung Galaxy J5 review (2017): A superb budget phone, but you should probably hang on for the 2018 version

 

Samsung's updated Galaxy J5 is a truly brilliant smartphone for less than half the price of today's popular flagships

The updated Galaxy J5 is a solid performer. Battery life exceeded our expectations, the new design is favourable over its predecessor, and its camera is impressive for a handset of this calibre.The only issue is that price hike. For £140, last year’s...

Samsung Galaxy J5 (2017) Duos Smartphone Preview

 

First Impression. With the update of its attractive Galaxy J series, we have the third generation of the J5 in our test. Samsung radically changed the design and otherwise performs meaningful fine tuning. Fans of removable batteries will be...

With the 2017 version of the Samsung Galaxy J5, the Koreans succeed in an update of their most popular smartphone. We like the design in particular, even if the device becomes slightly larger.

Samsung Galaxy J5 (2017) Review

 

The new Galaxy J5 (2017) comes to replace a hugely popular affordable phone, but will its aluminum design and modern Samsung interface convince buyers to overlook some considerable issues?…

Feature-rich modern new Samsung UI ; Solid build quality ; Very good battery life ; Modern look thanks to minimal side bezel ; Android 7.0 Nougat on board ; Supports microSD memory expansion

Stuttery performance ; HD display resolution, pixelization noticeable ; Unimpressive, rather slow camera, even for a cheap phone ; Only 16GB on-board storage ; Feels overpriced ; microUSB port rather than USB-C

Samsung Galaxy J5 2017 review

 

The ever-popular Samsung Galaxy J5 has been upgraded for 2017 with a full metal body, and a fingerprint sensor embedded in the home button. It's a smart, slim phone with a good-sized 5.2 inch AMOLED screen and fast performance from its 8-core Exynos...

The Samsung Galaxy J5 has always appealed to those looking for good all-round performance for a modest spend. Samsung has moved the J5 slightly upmarket in 2017, giving it a metal casing and a faster processor - both very welcome moves. The phone...

Samsung Galaxy J5 (2017) review: a change of face and price

 

Samsung's Galaxy J line is quite popular among users who are looking for a brand device that's not too expensive. The J5 (2017) exhibits new materials and design compared to the previous generation. But how does it go about it in terms of performance?...

Quality of materials and assembly ; Battery life time ; Dual SIM

Lack of notification LED ; Keys are not backlit ; Price too high ; MicroUSB instead of Type C

The Samsung Galaxy J5 (2017) offers a more elegant design than the previous generation and houses the fingerprint reader. Overall it is an improved version, able to satisfy less demanding users (gamers stay away from this device). Good battery life...

Great phone but NO LED light

 

I bought this phone a couple of days ago to replace an old s4. Phone is great but it has a huge flaw - no LED light to indicate messages, missed calls, battery charge. I have no idea why Samsung would come up with something so stupid. Now you have to...
