Samsung’s Galaxy J series is a success and they are revising the series each year. The latest J7 Prime is a great mid range phone with a big screen and few extra power but the J5 prime is also a great cavalry. Samsung Nepal has launched the new Galaxy J5 Prime in Nepal on the occasion of Tihar. It is slightly expensive than the J5 2016 but there are few great benefits.
Price of Samsung Galaxy J5 Prime in Nepal is Rs 22990. We have explained the differences between the J 2016 series and Prime series in another article. The company is bringing really great budget and mid range phones like On series and C series as well. J5 Primes is a 5” screened phone with IPS LCD display panel. It is protected by 2.5D Gorilla Glass on top.
Galaxy J5 Prime Hardware Specs
Under the screen, there is a 1.4 GHz quad core processor along with 2 GB RAM. The in-built memory capacity is 16 GB while it can still be expanded up to 256 GB using SD card. Galaxy J5 Prime features a metal uni-body design and non removable back. Thus the 2400 mAh battery is non-removable this time. It is running on latest Android Marshmallow OS and updated Touchwiz UI with new things such as S Secure.
There is 13 Megapixel f/1.9 sensor with LED flash at back and 5 MP f/2.2 camera on front. Both of these camera are capable of shooting at 1920×1080. They both provide detailed and crispy high resolution images. You can really enjoy selfies and video conversation from the front camera.
Galaxy J5 Prime definitely supports OTG and also has fingerprint sensor. It is 4G LTE compatible with VoLTE function. Samsung India has now official stated that it will only manufacture 4G phones from now on. We believe that Samsung Nepal will also follow the same path. It obviously packs new features such as Ultra power, data saving mode,S secure and a new Power reserve option.
Samsung is slowly making their phones great with updates like metal body and fingerprint sensor. However they shouldn’t have removed the best parts like AMOLED display and front facing flash. We really appreciate the new updates interface and features like S secure, power management modes etc.
Anyways it is a really good upper range budget level phone. If you want a big screen and little more powerful phone then the J7 prime is a great option. You can still buy the Galaxy J5(2016) because it is still a good deal and has AMOLED display.
