Samsung Galaxy J5 Pro

Samsung's Galaxy J series smartphones typically operate on a yearly release cycle, with new handsets retaining the same name but incorporating more advanced hardware and features. The Samsung Galaxy J5 Pro bucks this trend slightly, as it's the direct successor to the 2016 Galaxy J5 despite bearing the new "Pro" moniker.

Released in June 2017, the Galaxy J5 Pro stays true to the budget-friendly ethos of other Galaxy J series phones. It packs hardware that would have been considered cutting edge just a few years prior, with similar specs to the 2015 premium Samsung Galaxy S6 smartphone. But thanks to the rapid pace of mobile technology, the Galaxy J5 Pro is significantly cheaper than the Galaxy S6 was back when it launched.


Design

  • All-metal body and curved-glass surface add a premium feel to the budget handset
  • Fingerprint sensor and Samsung Pay support add an extra layer of functionality

Camera

  • Features a f/1.7 lens on the rear camera for better shots in low light
  • 13MP front-facing camera for high-resolution selfies

Performance

  • Eight-core 1.6GHz processor is a big step up from the 2016 Galaxy J5
  • 3GB of RAM gives the Galaxy J5 Pro more capacity to multi-task

Battery

  • Double-digit battery life claims from Samsung promise plenty of runtime
  • The shift to a sealed battery means no more swapping in spares
