Display:

As we told above that its has 5.2 inch IPS LCD capacitive touch screen. The best thing about it has 2.5D gorilla glass with bright colours. It adjusts the brightness of screen with respect to light. The screen covers the almost 72% of the body, which means it has the big display.

Functionality:

While it is still very clearly a custom interface that is heavy and that has very little to do with stock Android and Material Design, it has evolved tremendously. The J5 (2017) features its latest iteration, similar to what you get on the flagship Galaxy S8 series.

You get the new weather widget, the new fonts, the swipe-up app drawer, the new light grey and blue notification dropdown, support for UI themes, and all the rest of the tricks from the S8. There is even one new trick from the lockscreen: you can now swipe to the side to see music controls and easily switch to the next song in your preferred music service.

Processor, Performance and Memory:

Under the hood, the Galaxy J5 (2017) introduces brand new silicon: it uses the 14nm Exynos 7 Octa 7870 system chip, a big (but not big enough) step up from the 28nm Snapdragon 410 on the J5 (2016). You also have 2GB of RAM on board.

The casual gamer will find it good enough for your Candy Crush addiction, but this phone is not a good choice for gamers that turn to games like Vainglory or other graphics and processing intense titles.

The other shortcut that Samsung takes with the new J5 is storage. Having only 16GB of storage is too low even for an affordable phone in 2017. Admittedly, you do have a microSD card option that feels more like a necessity in this case.

Camera:

The J5 (2017) comes with a 13-megapixel, 27mm f/1.7 camera on the back, and a 13MP, 28mm f/1.9 shooter up front.

The camera app supports the neat double-click the home key shortcut to launch, and it is the familiar clean Samsung affair. You swipe up and down to switch between the front and rear cameras, and swipe left to see effects and right for modes. You have an auto mode, pro mode (with limited controls including White Balance, ISO, Exposure and Metering), Panorama, Continuous shot, HDR, Night, Sports and Sound and Shot. To start recording video, simply tap on the red button right next photo shutter key.

Battery life:

The Samsung Galaxy J5 (2017) features a 3,000mAh, non-removable battery.

This, combines with the HD display that is not too taxing and the power-efficient, 14nm system chip, make the phone a battery champ.

We also measure how long it takes to recharge a phone’s battery from 0 to 100%. The new J5 (2017) also brings slightly faster charging thanks to its 5 volt, 1.55 amp wall charger, and recharges fully in 2 hours and 10 minutes. This puts it in the middle of the ranks in terms of charging speed.
