For those all those who are looking for a mid-level priced phone that is packed with a good camera and simple features that are just enough for you to go about daily tasks, then Samsung Galaxy J5 Prime is a good option. Unfortunately the smartphone failed to impress and here’s why.

The smartphone has a touchscreen display of 5 inches that has a resolution of 1280 pixels by 720 pixels. While the clarity is clear with a 2.5D curved glass design, the lack of a full-HD display is disappointing as the ability to watch videos of 1080p quality is compromised.

Powered by a quad-core processor of 1.4GHz speeds and a RAM of 2GB, the Samsung Galaxy J5 Prime is fast enough to allow you to multitask smoothly, but if you are looking to play any of the heavier Android games, you might find that this phone tends to lag.

A primary camera of 13 megapixels is fitted on to the rear of the J5 Prime, along with an LED flash beside it. This allows for capturing good quality images even in low light situations. The front camera is of 5 megapixels, which is suitable for taking selfies. There are also features like the Palm Selfie, Wide Selfie and the Beauty Face included in the camera application. However those who are hoping to capture stellar studio-style photos, may want to shy away from the Samsung Galaxy J5 Prime.

The phone is fitted with 16GB internal memory capacity, which can be expanded using a microSD card of up to 256GB. Fitted with dual SIM slots, the Galaxy J5 Prime accepts two Nano SIM cards. The smartphone comes with the Android OS version 6.0 Marshmallow pre-installed.

A battery that is non-removable and has a capacity of 2400mAh powers this smartphone and is said to give it a battery life of up to 20 hours. Samsung has also included a new feature called the S Power which helps to save battery life by selecting one of three options namely, reserving battery remaining for calls, forwarding calls when the battery is empty and extending battery time.

Connectivity options for this phone include Bluetooth, WiFi, 3G, 4G, GPS and FM. The Galaxy J5 Prime has a number of sensors including an ambient light sensor, proximity sensor and an accelerometer.

Along with Samsung’s new S Secure mode for security, there is also a fingerprint sensor inbuilt for extra protection. The Samsung Galaxy J5 Prime is priced at Rs. 14,790 and is available along with 10GB of internet data for a price of 1GB data from Vodafone.

Mobile Upgrades: Killing The Product Before Its Time?

Have to agree. The speed of newer phone models within the same series and newer app versions lead to more thought put into buying decisions. Phone lines have a definite short shelf life

Frequently upgrading the software is a real problem as updating the software might cause your phone to lag because of the older hardware.

They should come out with upgrades for the specific phones and not for the separate Operating System. This way a special version for your phones specific hardware can be made
