Samsung Galaxy J5 Prime Features

Samsung launched the Galaxy J5 Prime along with the Galaxy J7 Prime in September 2016. Both the phones feature a fingerprint sensor to ensure better security. Lets check out further about the Galaxy J5 Prime.

Design and Display

The phone features a metal unibody design and is among the cheapest phone from Samsung to sport an all metal unibody. The phone is well built and thanks to the smaller footprint, it fits perfectly in hand. On the front of the Galaxy J5 Prime sits a 5 inch display with a resolution of 1280x720 pixels giving it a pixel density of 294PPI. Unfortunately, you won't get Gorilla Glass protection.

Hardware and Features

Running in side the device is Samsung's Exynos 7570 Quad Core chipset clocked at 1.4GHz and combined with it is 2GB of RAM. These specs sound decent and the phone should handle day-to-day tasks easily. On the software front, Samsung Galaxy J5 Prime comes with Android 6.0 Marshmallow out of the box with Samsung's TouchWiz UI skinning on top of it. There is not information about Android Nougat update and hence it is very unlikely to get. Apart from this, the phone gets a fingerprint sensor on the front embedded in the home button.

Camera and Storage

Rear of the Galaxy J5 Prime sports a 8MP sensor that can record videos up to 1080p and the camera also gets an LED Flash for low light conditions. Whereas on the front, you get a 5MP camera for video calling and selfie needs. To store all your media files and data, you get 16GB of onboard storage and that can be further expanded up to 256GB via a microSD card.

Battery and Connectivity

To power the Galaxy J5 Prime there is a 2400mAh battery sealed inside the device and the device also supprts fast charging. The phone accepts Dual Nano SIMs and also supports 4G LTE in India with VoLTE. Besides, you get the standard WiFi, Bluetooth but no NFC.
