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.
