The South Korean high-tech giant Samsung has launched Galaxy J5 2016 as a phone positioned in the mid-range mobile devices market.
According to Phone Radar, the Galaxy J5 is one of the sturdiest Samsung smartphones in this price range. Thanks to the metal frame with strong edges, the device offers a solid build quality. The aluminum frame around plastic body comes with an exchangeable back cover.
The Galaxy J5 features the same design as other Samsung mid-range handsets, with nothing fancy about its aesthetics. Every port has been placed in the same locations where they have been on earlier Samsung mid-range models, apart from shifting audio jack to bottom edge.
When most of the other major mobile devices manufacturers offer a 1080p display that has become a standard in the industry, the Galaxy J5 comes with a display that provides only 720p resolution. And while many companies are now offering 5.5-inch mobile phone screens, Samsung Galaxy J5 features a 5.2-inch display size.
The Super AMOLED used in J5 look quite interesting even if it is a 720p display. The phone provides good user experience in playing games or watching videos.

The Galaxy J5 comes with a microSD card slot that allows upgrading the 16GB of built-in memory up to 128GB. The phone features a 5MP front-facing camera with LED flash and f/1.9 aperture and a 13 MP main camera with LED flash, f/1.9 aperture, face detection, phase detect autofocus and 1080p video recording.
