4 years ago

Samsung Galaxy J5 2017 is among members the J-series smartphones that were announced in June 2017.

Other J-series entrants that were announced this month are J7 (2017), J7 Pro, and J7 Max.

The handset is a successor to Samsung Galaxy J6 2016.

Here are Samsung Galaxy J5 2017 specifications:

Feature Specification(s)
Display 5.2-inches Super AMOLED capacitive touchscreen, 720×1280 pixels, 282ppi


Platform Android v7.1 Nougat, Exynos 7870 Octa, Octa-core 1.6GHz Cortex-A53, Mali-T830MP2

Battery 3,000mAh non-removable battery

Judging from its specs and price, Samsung Galaxy J5 2017 will be an okay mid-range handset. The 5.2-inch Super AMOLED screen is okay and apt for someone who wants to watch videos and play games.

The low pixel density (282ppi) does not look good on paper; hence, we cannot expect much.

The price tag (though projected) seems a bit too high for a handset with such specs. We can only hope that this will be lower (250 euros maybe?).

The RAM is also average and this is not a very good thing for those who love to multitask.


As we always say, it is fair and prudent to reserve judgment until we have actually interacted with the specific gadget.
