Samsung Galaxy J5 review (2017): Design and Display.
However, Samsung has included some significant changes in its design, including removing a chunky camera from last year’s model. Back camera now sits flush with the case, reduces unwanted scratches on the lens.
Another welcoming feature in Samsung J5 is all-metal unibody chassis, which feels more luxurious than the previous model’s plastic pursuit.And the phone’s newly rounded and chamfered edges help it fit more snug in the palm, giving you a flagship feel at a fraction of the price.
Depending on the display, the Galaxy J5 2017 model has a 1,280 x 720 resolution. While this is pretty low, even at this price, it’s still a great display. Thanks in the main to its Super AMOLED panel, it makes up in vibrancy for what it lacks in pixels, being an incredible-looking screen overall for the price.
And it gets very bright. Indeed, in the auto brightness mode, the Galaxy J5 exits 756cd/m2, which is quite bright to ensure readability in even the brightest of ambient light.
Samsung Galaxy J5 review (2017): Camera
We did not expect much from Galaxy J5 cameras, mainly because the most middle range of this type of phone does not boast any impressive photo-picker kit. The fact is that we were disappointed by the 2016 J5 model camera, which was the most welfare trend.
On paper, this year’s model does not look much better, as a 13-megapixel resolution, a little aperture has been broken especially for F / 1.7. But this is not a case when it comes to the use of the real world, and we welcome some of the handsets of handset cameras.
Images are usually very clear and well-described, with very low-noise reproduction with very low noise. Low light conditions are handled very well, more vibrancy and high detail are offered with daylight shots. You will expect at the point of view that this is a very versatile camera.
Samsung Galaxy J5 review (2017): Verdict
The latest Galaxy J5 is a solid artist. Battery life exceeds our expectations, the new design is satisfactory on its profession, and this camera is impressive for the handset of its ability.
The only problem is that prices increase. For £ 140, last year’s J5 felt like the actual matter despite its limits, while the new galaxy J5 is more expensive £ 240. Still, it’s almost all the way, a strong phone and, on £ 240, is a great deal, handsets such as Galaxy S8 or iPhone 7 £ 550 to 600 pounds. And this price will also decrease in the coming months.
That’s not to say there aren’t equally good options, though. In particular, this year’s J5 faces stiff competition from the likes of the Moto G5 Plus (£250), the Nokia 6 (£230) and the Lenovo P2 (£200). There’s also last year’s Galaxy J5 to contend with, which can still be found for under £170. Nevertheless, the Galaxy J5 is a truly brilliant smartphone for less than half the price of the popular flagships out there.
