Reviews of Samsung Galaxy J5

General Reviews of the users are as follows:

Pros

  • Good Display
  • Front Camera takes good quality pictures, Rear Camera is ok.
  • Speaker is decent, not too loud.

Cons

  • Performance of this device is not at par with the price of the devices. Average games create lag with this device.
  • This device needed a 2 GB RAM.
  • Very low internal storage space. 8 GB not sufficient for this device, 16 GB would have made this device better.
  • While playing games heating is an issue which has been brought up by the users. Heat level is not too high but still considerable amount.

I personally would not prefer this device due to the 8 GB Internal Memory. This device would have done better with a lower MP rear camera.
