Product Description

Samsung product strategy is to make dozens of phones every year for all sorts of markets and for all sorts of users. Then, they see what sticks and keep pumping out similar phones. The Galaxy J series is a good example of such series of phones. These are budget phones with decent specs. 
Let’s discuss what the Galaxy J5, a middle-of-the-road dual SIM smartphone, has to offer.

Body & Display

It fits right in with the Samsung design language from 2013-2014. The Galaxy J5 is a phone with an “unapologetically” plastic body. We don’t like plastic at all; glass, or metal is a much better material for a phone. The display is nice, though. It’s a 5” HD LCD display that is said to work well, displaying sharp results even in direct sunlight.

Camera

A 13MP rear shooter with LED flash and a 5MP selfie shooter round up the Galaxy J5’s optics. We like that the selfie camera has a wide angle lens which should make it great for taking group selfies, or selfies where you also want the background to show. Videos from the rear camera can be recorded at up to 1080p Full HD at 30fps. Other features like auto-focus, GPS location tagging and face detection are also available.

Hardware Performance

The Snapdragon 410 quad-core 1.2GHz chip is a standard in budget smartphones now. It’s a low-end chip but with ample RAM - 1.5GB in this case - will be fine for basic surfing, texting, editing photos etc. Just don’t expect to play the most complex games or run dozens of apps simultaneously. 
Connectivity options are aplenty on Galaxy J5. 4G is supported, as are the latest WiFi technologies, Bluetooth, and microUSB. 
 
A terrible limitation is its 8GB internal storage. It’s much too little to be comfortable. Android phones should have 16GB at least for pleasant usage. At least the microSD card slot supports cards up to 128GB big.

Software

It comes with Android 5.1 Lollipop built-in but it is upgradeable to 6.0 Marshmallow. The upgrade was released in June 2016.
