Similar Mobiles to Samsung Galaxy J5 (2017)

These are some best mobiles similar to Samsung Galaxy J5 (2017). I think you’ll like them, too.

FAQS: Samsung Galaxy J5 (2017)

The Galaxy J series had its humble beginnings with the Galaxy J5 and then we got to see the famed J5 2016 a couple of years later. With a little bit of tinkering here and there, Samsung has launched the all new Galaxy J7 2017. Commanding an expected launch price in excess of 30,000 rupees, below is what ‘you’ should be expecting from the J series’ upcoming increment.

Heavy metal all around

The device features an all metal build with some curvy tracks up its back panel that somewhat makes it resemble some HTC devices. From the front, the J5 retains the design that all Samsung smartphones enjoy, bar the Galaxy S8 with all infinity display while when it comes to its dimensions, a 7.9mm width cannot be termed shabby by any means.

Superman? Nope! Super AMOLED

You heard that right. Just like 99% other Samsung smartphones, the J5 2017 comes in with Samsung’s favorite display technology. We’re talking about a 5.2 inches Super AMOLED capacitive touchscreen with 282ppi pixel density. Allowing a respectable 720p resolution, we’re positive that you’ll find graphics atop the 5.2 inches display pretty satisfying.

You just cannot separate the two cameras in the J5 2017

We say this because both the smartphone’s camera sensors feature equivalent muscle; with a 13 megapixel dedicated snapper for both your primary and selfie cameras, taking your hands-off these two babies will be a whole lot difficult.

Cameras with similar pedigree have produced commendable results before and with features that include geo-tagging, touch-focus, face detection, HDR and panorama, you’ll have plenty of options to explore with your snaps atop the J5 2017. So, there really isn’t much to separate the two sensors apart from the fact that the primary sensor has a dedicated LED flash while the selfie sensor does not; not much of a surprise or a problem, yes?

So what’s inside?

Schematically, the J5 2017 features a powerful octa-core processor with an additional 2 gigs of RAM. RAM wise, we did expect it to top at 3 gigs but it’s not the first time we’ve been disappointed by the amount of RAM Samsung has stuffed in its smartphones. That being said, the aforementioned processing power seems okay for the Samsung-tinkered built-in Android Nougat.

Its internal storage banks at 16 gigs which is an amount that’s slowly turned into something that repels people away but you do have an external card slot at your service, if required. A front-mounted, home-key embedded fingerprint scanner duly takes its place above the smartphone’s front bottom bezel. A satisfying non-removable 3000 mAh battery juices the Galaxy J5 2017 while four different colour schemes namely blue, pink, gold and black rounds-off just about everything you need to know about the J5 2017. We’re guessing, you might be able to do better within this price, especially with Xiaomi.

Galaxy J5 2017 pros:
  • Commendable build quality gives the smartphone a premium feel
  • A slight of change of design from the back distinguishes the smartphone from other Samsung devices
  • The two 13 megapixel camera sensors are surely, the highlight of the J5 2017
  • Fingerprint scanner and 4 excellent colour schemes are surely a plus
Galaxy J5 2017 cons:
  • The display resolution definitely could’ve been more beefed-up
  • Same applies to its 16 gigs of internal storage
  • Should’ve packed at-least 3 gigs of RAM
