Mobile phone companies strive to release new flagship models of their mobile phones each year. But some mobile phone companies, like Samsung, release a more affordable option that is suitable for most people.
Today, we are going to talk about the Samsung J5. This is an inexpensive mobile phone that has quite a good screen and performance.
The design of the Samsung J5 is pretty much the same as their other mobile phone lineups in the past 2 years. In fact, most people mistake it for their Samsung Galaxy S4. If you’re familiar with the Galaxy S4 of 2 years’ past, then the design of the J5 is pretty similar.
Since this is a budget mobile phone, the specs aren’t that flashy. But for the price, it is pretty much okay. The display of the Samsung J5 is a 5-inch SuperAMOLED HD display with a resolution of 1280×720 and a pixel density of 294 ppi.
This mobile phone also comes with the Android Lollipop 5.1.1 operating system, a Qualcomm snapdragon quad-core processor with 1.2GHz clock speeds, 2GB of RAM, and it also comes with the Adreno 306 GPU.
The under the hood specs are not that great, but for most applications, it should be good enough. It also comes with 8GB or 16GB of internal storage with a microSD card support up to 128GB.
This Android mobile phone weighs only 146 grams and it has dimensions of 142.1×71.8×7.9mm.
The Android Lollipop 5.1.1 that comes with the Samsung J5 is actually quite good, although, some people do not like it because Samsung dab a little bit of the TouchWiz UI to it. Still, the interface looks really clean and I find it to be quite pleasing to the eyes. The mobile phone operating system’s inherent Material Design also makes the apps’ icons pop up even more.
Samsung has created a lot of mobile phones that have better cameras. The Samsung J5’s camera is surprisingly good for the price. This mobile phone comes with a 13-megapixel rear snapper with an aperture of f/1.9 which allows you to capture great photos in good lighting conditions.
The camera app is also quite snappy and there is an integration between the home button and the camera app. Whenever you quickly double tap the home button, the camera app then launches so that you can capture photos anytime in a snap!
However, with a pretty good camera, the Samsung J5’s camera does not have an optical image stabilization technology. This means that people who have shaky hands might have trouble focusing on an object, for example.
And lastly, the Samsung J5 Android mobile phone comes with a 2,600 MaH non-removable battery. It can last up to 13 hours of light to moderate use and 5-7 hours of intensive use. That is pretty good if you’re the type of person who using their mobile phones solely for gaming. Although, do not expect great framerates with this phone, but you can pretty much game with it nonetheless.
The Samsung J5 is a good and affordable phone which only costs $219. If you’re a Samsung fan and you want an affordable mobile phone that is pretty relevant, the Samsung J5 is for you!
