This device has a AMOLED display is its main advantage over competitors from other companies. And lower screen resolution plays a even in the plus as a modest processor does not have to strain to process the pictures. At least the brakes and provides a good optimized Android operating system 5.1.

After you purchase this model you will get a card because of the volume of the built-in store only enough for basic needs. In the global web, the device comes with LTE-networks — data transfer rate you just want. Also, the device comes with a proximity sensor. But the light sensor is not here, so the brightness will have to be adjusted manually. Still nothing good to be said about the cameras here, purely "for show".

such that restrictions will have to go to you with the purchase of this smartphone. I recommend you to pay attention to it only if you are a fan of products the South Korean company, and thus you necessarily need a compact camera.

Also the display has curved edges, which also causes after the purchase a delight. The upper region engineers have dramatically reduced in size. In the same way decreased the area under the screen manufacturer even refused the usual Home button at the same time moving the fingerprint sensor on the rear panel.

This smartphone is the flagship. That says it all. The machine has the most powerful components and a great camera.

One of the largest South Korean smartphones. Under his metal case is hiding a very capacious battery. The picture on the display, created by technology Super AMOLED, which is famous for its energy efficiency. As a result, the reviews there are often phrases that the device operates from a single charge two or even two and a half days.

With the other characteristics here, too, all right. The rear panel is home to a 16-megapixel camera. To journey in the vast global web designed modules LTE and 802.11 ac Wi-Fi. The signal is sent to the wireless headset via Bluetooth 4.2. Still, the device is able to boast a large amount of memory and a very powerful processor. Pity you can only about the lack of support for MST, which payment by Samsung Pay will have to forget. But the buyer will be available to service Android Pay, as it is the NFC chip.

Very good the smartphone. It has adequate memory. And about the processor it is impossible to say anything bad. Data transfer is carried out by means of modules of LTE and Wi-Fi 802.11 n. The front panel features a 5.2-inch display with excellent color reproduction. And its technology is allowed to achieve continuous Autonomous operation — in this respect, all competitors with same price tag from other companies be far behind.

Конечно, Samsung Galaxy J5 (2016) не мог стать идеальным смартфоном. Ради снижения стоимости южнокорейцам пришлось отказаться от MST и датчика освещенности. Некоторое недовольство может вызвать и фронтальная камера, имеющая 5-мегапиксельное разрешение. А вот основная камера показывает себя весьма неплохо. Порадовать покупателя могут и два слота для SIM-карт. Однако второй является совмещенным, так что придется сделать выбор между SIM-картой и card.
