On same date of March 12, Samsung Nepal also released The Samsung Galaxy E5 with the Samsung Galaxy E7. This is also a great installment in this new series in the mid range smartphone. As they both have plastic and metal mash up built. The design is good with curved edges in this phone which gives it a unique design. We got our hand on this device on the bloggers meet.

The E series phone have the new front camera feature of 120 degree Wide angle Selfie that includes Selfie with palm Gesture, Selfie voice command, beauty face detection. Obviously there is Ultra Power saving mode and private mode. The only thing we missed is Gorilla Glass in this one. You will face problem if you wish to install two SIM cards and memory card. One must be sacrificed for another.
In this model also the back cover is non removable so you will have to compromise o this one. Samsung Service centers can always do battery servicing when required. The feel is great, we also played FIFA 15 which was lovey with no lag at all. The official market price of Samsung Galaxy E5 in Nepal is Rs 26500. See the review of cooler and powerful Samsung Galaxy E7.
The problem with this phone is non removable back and battery but that is compensated by the “Power saving mode” and advanced “Ultra power saving mode”. This phone is now challenged by the new Galaxy J5 which has better camera, upgraded UI and UX which now comes at very low price of Rs 20000.
