Samsung Galaxy J5: A Strong Substitute of the Moto G4

With standard screen brightness and a SIM-free cost of £160, Samsung Galaxy J5 has proved itself the second longest lasting smartphone of 2016. With its cost-effective feature, this brand-new budget handset of Samsung is challenging other budget smartphones like Moto G 4th Gen easily.

The J5 compromises in many areas like performance and entire build quality for keeping the price low. For instance, its plastic frame isn’t waterproof and its glossy finish doesn’t look do good compared to the metal frames. However, most importantly, the J5 is well-made and its matt cover is nicer than the grooved finish on the Moto G4. The J5’s slim dimensions make it really Display:
The J5 is the cheapest Samsung phone that features 5-inch 1280×720 Super AMOLED display. Albeit, the Moto G4’s screen is pretty good but it can’t match the J5’s display’s vibrancy. With its 100% perfect black, SRGB colour gamut coverage and contrast ratio, the picture looks superb on the J5.

The J5 is definitely not the fastest smartphone because it can’t compete with other budget smartphones with its Quad-core 1.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 processor alongside 1.5GB of RAM. But in Geekbench 3, the J5 has put the Moto G4 behind in the single core and multicore test. Albeit Samsung’s Android 5.1.1 based TouchWiz interface is relatively responsive and smooth, but the Moto G also proved to be faster at loading games or web browsing.moto_g4
Like many other budget smartphones, the J5 features a 13MP rear camera which is found quite temperamental relying on the lighting conditions. Surprisingly, there’s no HDR mode for which resulting pictures aren’t very satisfactory. However, colour is bright if the indoor photography is done.

Albeit the J5 has many issues, it has enough speed to help you do your daily mobile tasks. A slight backlog is the Moto G4 users have already the benefit of having an upgrade to Android 6.0 Marshmallow, which is not possible for the J5 users presently. So, except the battery life or screen, the Moto G4 beats the J5 everywhere. One backlog is that the Moto G4 is not water-resistant, albeit it features a 5.5-inch full HD display.

Finally, it’s up to you which smartphone you will choose. If you want a handy set with good battery life and screen quality, then the J5 is good for you. But if you want a budget phone with lots of good features, then you should definitely opt for the Moto G4.

In comparison to the predecessors Galaxy J5 and J7, these new devices are more elegant but will come made with the plastic material.

Samsung Galaxy J7 (2016) will get two variants this year, which will come with model numbers SM-J7108 and SM-J7109.

And the SM-J7109 will be provided with an unknown octa core processor with four cores clocked at 1.5 GHz and other four cores clocked at 1.2 GHz.

The Galaxy J7 features LTE and an internal storage of 16GB which can be further expanded with the help of card slot. There is a 13MP primary camera and 5MP front facing camera for clicking better quality images even in dim light.

There is an internal storage of 16GB with further expansion possible.
