Not all people can notice the difference between the two Samsung Galaxy J5s which were released somewhat a year apart. Perhaps it is about time and it would only be fair to reveal the notable advantages of one to the other. So, here are the top similarities or dissimilarities of both smartphones having at least the same names.
The Samsung Galaxy J5
- Design Comparisons
Initially, the J5 has the following dimensions: 142.1 x 71.8 x 7.9mm to begin with. At the same time, it weighs only 146 grams. Likewise, it has a plastic back along with the metal frame.
This unit dons a 5-inch AMOLED display that has a resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels and a 294 pixels per inch (ppi) ratio. For a smartphone in this category, it might just be a good buy.
- Processor, GPU and RAM
This one has a Snapdragon 410 chipset Qualcomm MSM8916, quad-core 1.2GHz Cortex A53 CPU, and a graphics card categorized as Adreno 306, to go along the 2GB of RAM.
This model has two variants of 8GB and 16GB of internal memory storage with supported microSD slot expandable to 256GB.
A removable Li-ion battery with 2600mAh is inside the J5, which might not be a very impressive feature for a smartphone at this category these days.
The Samsung Galaxy J5 (2016)
- The Display
Both have super AMOLED displays, but this one has a 5.2-inch display that should go with the 1280 x 720 pixels at 282 ppi.
- Processor Speed and RAM
The J5 (2016) has the same chipset and processor speed and graphics card. The only difference between the two is the 2GB of RAM, which is slightly better than the first.
Both have microSD slot expandable to 256GB, which is not a usual feature that any other phone can easily have. However, the notable difference is the internal memory which starts at 16GB instead of 8.
- Battery Life
Speaking of powerful devices, it should come with greater battery than the usual. So, Samsung has made it 3100mAh to go with the new hardware upgrades.
In terms of camera features, they are still the same in this category in which both the Samsung Galaxy J5s have 13MP back- and 5MP front-facing camera features. Well, the cards have all been laid and there you have it, folks!
