Build and Display

In spite of its relatively small dimension compared to the Samsung Galaxy J7, this smartphone is somewhat surprisingly thicker than the larger variant. And at 149 grams heavy, it is certainly not the lightest midrange phone we have seen.

Samsung Galaxy J5 sports a 5-inch HD (720p) display, which should offer decent clarity and rich colours.

The Cameras

This aspect is probably where Samsung Galaxy J5 scores the most points. There is a remarkable 13-megapixel shooter at the back of the phone. The camera has F1.9 wide aperture and features LED flash and autofocus.

But the selfie camera is more striking. The 5-megapixel, wide angle snapper on the front comes with LED flash to help users take better quality selfies.
