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.
