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 4.1 out of 5 by 40.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Very delicate phone I upgraded to the J5 from an old J3. The features of this phone are great and can't complain about the speed, but the build is not great. Minor impacts have now cracked the screen twice. This is a very disappointing as my old J3 got thrown off treadmills a couple of times and the screen still didn't break.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Value for money I've had this phone for about 2 months now and I've no complaints. It has everything I would want from a phone - clean design, good battery life, and simple to use. For the price, it's a great phone and I'm so glad I chose it.
