Samsung Galaxy J5 is a low-end phone from Samsung with a whooping 13MP rear camera and a 5MP front camera which comes at a price of Rs. 23,400 in Sri Lanka. Samsung Galaxy J series phones have been very successful in Sri Lanka due to their good features and low price. The J series phones are perfect for people who want a good phone without spending too much money.
The J5's build quality is very good and the phone feels very sturdy in hand. The design of the phone is similar to other Samsung phones with a home button in the front and two capacitive buttons on each side, but there are no backlit for them.
The phone has a 720p HD display and the colors look very good. The viewing angles are also great and you can see the screen perfectly even when it's not in direct sunlight.
Samsung Galaxy J5 has a 2600 mAh removable battery which will last more than one day with moderate usage, but heavy users may need to charge it every night.
Samsung Galaxy J5 comes with a Snapdragon 410 processor, which is a bit old but still performs well. The phone has 16GB of internal storage, which is expandable up to 128GB with a microSD card.
The phone runs on Android Lollipop with Samsung’s TouchWiz UI. The performance is also very good and it can handle heavy tasks like gaming without any lag. There are no issues with the software except that the phone sometimes gets slow when you open many apps at once or play some graphic-intensive games.
The 13MP rear camera is one of the best you can find on a phone in this price range and takes good photos both indoors and outdoors. The front-facing camera is also very good for a phone in this range with a resolution of 5MP.
J5 can handle most of the popular games available on the Google Play Store without any issues. However, it will struggle with some graphics-intensive games like Asphalt.
If you are looking for a phone with a good camera and performance without spending too much money, then Samsung Galaxy J series phones are the best option in Sri Lanka.
