Editor Notes

Although both the phones belong to a different series from Samsung, they both look similar in terms of design and pure specifications. The Galaxy E series phones are relatively new with more focus on stylized metal body frames and better front camera features, while the now year older Grand 2 has always been about a big screen phone with mid-range specifications for below-15k budget.

Both the phones come with a 720p display but share a different type of panel and screen size. The Galaxy E5 (5.0-inch) comes with a denser Super AMOLED panel known for its vibrant colors, while the Grand 2 (5.25-inch) comes with a regular LCD panel. Both phones come with a similar 1.2Ghz Quad-core processor, 1.5GB RAM and offer Dual-SIM functionality. On the software front, Galaxy E5 runs on Android 4.4 KitKat and Grand 2 runs on the outdated Android 4.3 Jelly Bean version. There’s no official word from Samsung for a future update to Android 5.0 Lollipop for both the phones.

Both the phones settle for a 8MP rear camera but the front camera is where we see the difference. The Galaxy E5 comes with a wide-angle 5MP front camera with a range of smart functions like one can take photos with a simple voice command or palm gesture and even use the Beautifying Mode for enhancing skin tones. On the other hand, the Grand 2 comes with a meagre 1.9MP front camera. The Grand 2 has a slightly larger removable battery (2600mAh) compared to E5’s (2400mAh) non-removable battery. The 8GB internal storage on Grand 2 is quite less, while Galaxy E5 comes with a manageable 16GB. Both the phones have microSD card support of up to 64GB.

Out of the two, the Galaxy E5 is a recommended buy as its got a better display, camera and has more chances to receive a software update.
