Samsung Galaxy J5 (2016) was released 86674 this past April and at the moment, it is available in a few select markets.
While the South Korean tech giant hasn’t released any clear roadmap regarding the availability of the mid-ranger in other regions across the globe, it appears that Europe will be among the beneficiaries of the company’s efforts. This is true given that the phone seems to have made an unofficial appearance in the Netherlands and it is currently priced at about 279 euros, which is approximately $311.02.
Of course, this is not the cheapest for a smartphone with the kind of specs on offer via this year’s Samsung Galaxy J5. But still, you will enjoy the quality of performance and functionality the phone has to offer at such a price tag.
If you are among the persons looking for a budget smartphone that will still be here to offer the best performance after six months, the Galaxy J5 (2016) is one of the best choices, if not the best. For starters, you will enjoy the roomy display screen of 5.2 inches. However, you might be slightly disappointed in the fact that the Super AMOLED panel used on the device has a mere resolution of 720p. When compared to other devices priced in the same range, you might want to think twice about Samsung Galaxy J5 (2016). However, given the quality of color saturation and intensity you get with the AMOLED panel, you will similarly have to think twice before going for another option.
Under the hood Samsung Galaxy J5 (2016) packs a decent quad-core Snapdragon SoC that manages a speed of 1.2GHz and is supported by a RAM of 2GB. On storage matters, you get a decent 16GB of onboard memory, which is of course supported by a microSD card slot that can accommodate up to 128GB.
Samsung is trying to make its mid-range devices appeal to the camera-conscious buyers. This is evident in the Galaxy J5 (2016)’s camera specs that see it feature a 13MP snapper on the back and a 5MP selfie camera. You will also be getting a decent battery life thanks to the 3100mAh unit used on the phone.
As mentioned earlier, Samsung Galaxy J5 (2016) has a price tag of 279 euros in the Netherlands, however, there is no word of when it will be making its way to other parts of Europe as well as the U.S. The phone is sold in color variants of black, white and gold.
