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.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Battery life is very poor I bought the phone about 2 month ago,first it's very heavy ,the apps are running quick but the battery could not last me a day I'm going to work at about 8 ,some talking about bit of music ,work talking and at about 3 the phone turn off itself.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Had it 18 months While the phone is good and reliable the camera is very good The applications loaded on the phone are a waste of time and take up 80% of the internal space (honestly what do I do with office - not needed ) It doesn't even have enough space to update itself and you cant remove the apps that you don't want Next pone will probably be a Motorola -shame as I like Samsung -as further note if the screen gets wet it gets confused and doesn't work for 25 minutes

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Expectations not met Bought mine 6 months ago, only came with 8gb storage, bought another 8gb card. What a waste of good money. Only downloaded 2 apps, ended up deleting due to not enough storage for updates. Very few pictures taken, but was stored on card. Got 7gb free on card but would be best if card was properly integrated to phone. Ridiculous amount of storage memory used on operating system. Won't be buying Samsung again until this issue gets fixed.
