Here is the list of the top 7 things you should know about the Samsung Galaxy J5-

1. No Screen protection

Most of the smartphones we use today come with a scratch resistant protection, which protects the display of the device from getting any kind of scratches, but unfortunately, you won’t be getting any kind of screen protection for the J5, so it is better if you get a screen guard if you are going to buy this device.

2. Front LED flash

If you love clicking selfies with your smartphone then you are going to admire the Galaxy J5, the 5 MP front camera of the Galaxy J5 not only produces good quality pictures but it also comes with a front LED flash,so if you want to click selfies even in low-light conditions  you won’t be having any kind of problem.

3. Battery life

The Galaxy J5 comes with a 2600 mAh battery , which gives you very good backup. If the battery is fully charged it can almost last up to 2 days. However, if you are heavy users then you may need to charge the device by the end of the day.

4. Insufficient amount of internal storage

Now days, most of the budget smartphone under Rs 10,000 comes with an internal memory of 16 GB or 32 GB , but the J5 offers an internal memory of only 8 GB, which is a setback , as you will be soon running out of memory if you use too many apps or games and you won’t be able to move many apps to your microSD card.

5. Not meant for gaming

Although Samsung has been showing the J5 to be a gaming smartphone , you won’t be able to play high-end games with a smooth gameplay experience, when you try to play games like Asphalt 8,Nova 3,etc you will see regular frame drops.

6. Performance

When it comes to multi-tasking and moderate gaming, the Galaxy J5 gives you a smooth multi-tasking experience without much laginess. But the scenario changes when you try to use too many apps at a time.

7. USB OTG Support

The Galaxy J5 comes with USB OTG support, so you can plug in a pen drive and watch your movies, videos or listen to music without transferring the data to the internal or external memory.
