Design and display

All-round protection

Last year’s Galaxy J5 (2016) may have had a sturdy metal boarder, but this year’s model is protected all-round. The slimline design looks and feels great, with the rear camera sitting completely flush against the smooth metal.  

High definition screen

At 5.2-inches, the J5’s HD screen provides plenty of space for doing more than one thing at once. And it’ll fair well against life’s occasional bumps and scrapes, with Gorilla Glass protection as standard. 

Camera

High quality photos

The main 13MP camera will deliver high quality photos every time, with a huge f/1.7 aperture. The lower the aperture number, the wider the lens can open - letting more light inside the camera. And more light means clearer, more accurate pictures.  

Equally impressive selfies

Front-facing lenses aren’t generally as powerful that the main smartphone cameras, but that’s not the case with the J5 (2017). At 13MP, it’s neck and neck – and that means super sharp selfies and crystal-clear video calls every time. 

Under the hood

Stay powered up for longer

A massive 3,000mAh battery will make sure you’re never without power. If you do find yourself running low, however, Samsung’s Ultra Power Saving mode will step in to save the day. 

Use more apps at once

Your favourite apps and games will all run smoothly with the J5 (2017)’s 1.6GHz octa-core processor running the show. And there’s 2GB RAM on board for good measure too.

Samsung Galaxy J5 2017 is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 33.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Amazing phone I've had this since August of 2017 and it has been working perfectly ever since. Very easy to use and great at handling a lot of work. The camera quality is amazing. Just every now and then it can get pretty fuzzy for like 10 seconds but all you have to do is clean the back camera. All throughout, an amazing phone. Rarely ever overheats and lasts for a very long time, Just the other day the phone was 25% and by the end of the day it only went down by 5%-10% even though i was using social media and listening to music at the same time. Really recommend this phone for younger people in secondary school to university.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great phone I brought this phone yesterday absolutely love it very quick and easy to use love the metal back as it makes its a strong phone the sound quality is very loud and perfect as I love my music and the camera good especially the front as I think this is the first time I've seen on a smart phone that has a front flash if you are in the dark which is ideal and it's got finger scanner to unlock the phone which I don't use but love the fact its got it this and you can add more memory to this phone which is excellent plus this is very cheap but decent smart phone
