Everything you need to know about the Samsung Galaxy J5 2016

Why should you choose Samsung Galaxy J5 2016?

If you’re looking for a high-quality, mid-range Samsung phone that offers an elegant design, a crystal-clear HD display, a high-quality camera and super-fast 4G connectivity then look no further than the new Galaxy J5. Released in April 2016, this reasonably priced phone allows customers to enjoy Samsung technology at a much more affordable rate than the premium Galaxy S7 edge.


Samsung Galaxy J5 2016

The Galaxy J5 (2016) features a 5.2-inch, Super AMOLED HD display that provides rich, true-to-life viewing. View photos and videos and play games in the highest quality with vibrant colours and deep, contrasting blacks. The Galaxy J5 has a smooth, glossy finish and is available in black, white and gold and fits nicely in the hand thanks to its curved edges, perfectly weighted, 146g body and slim, compact dimensions of 5.74 x 2.84 x 0.31-inches.

On the inside, you’ll find a powerful Qualcomm MSM8916 Snapdragon 410 processor, 2GB RAM and Android 6.0 (Marshmallow) software.


Capture every single moment with the new J5’s 13-megapixel rear camera. One of the best on the market, and an incredible feature for the price, users can take crisp, high-quality photos even in low light conditions.

The 5MP front-facing camera is perfect for selfies, especially with the Samsung’s Palm Selfie feature. Awkwardly stretching to reach the shutter button is a thing of the past, simply waving your palm will trigger a 2 second timer. The J5 also features touch focus and face detection so blurry images will be a thing of the past.

The Galaxy J5 has you covered for videos too, recording in HD with 1080p at 30fps.

New Features

Samsung Galaxy J5 2016

The Samsung Galaxy J5 (2016) features the new S bike mode, enabling riders to facilitate calls. Callers will automatically be informed that the rider is unavailable due to cycling, and then provided with an option to press 1 if the call is an emergency which will enable the call to go through. This allows riders to continue their journey completely uninterrupted, and only stop when it’s urgent.

Samsung Galaxy J3 vs J5

Samsung Galaxy J3 (2016)

An improvement on the Samsung Galaxy J3 (2016), the J5 (2016) boats a clearer, 13MP rear camera compared to the J3’s 8MP camera. Internally, the J5 offers a larger expandable memory of 256 GB, an improved processor, 0.5 GB of additional RAM and runs the latest Android system.

Samsung Galaxy J5

The battery size of the J5 is greater, at 3,100mAH, and with Samsung’s Ultra Power Saving mode, the charge can really stretch over the day.

Round up

If you’re looking for a high-quality, reasonably priced phone then the Samsung Galaxy J5 (2016) is arguably the best on the market. The impressive Snapdragon processor, 2GB RAM and the top-of-the-range 13MP camera make it a stand-out budget device.

A good priced smart phone with plenty of stamina, it had good battery life, with a amazing good size screen; blow the budget, well made, it seems that it can survives few add knocks. My only concern is the photo quality, indoor photos lack the definition and crispness
