Samsung has lately been branching its smartphone categories to offer a device in every price segment and to cater all types of users around the world. The South Korean handset manufacturer recently launched the Galaxy J5 smartphone that boasts of good features and an aggressive price tag that will appeal to the Indian mass. It seems that the J series of smartphones have been launched to take the competition to Chinese brands that has been launching budget smartphones left, right and center in India.
Quick Launch for camera app: There are moments when you just have to take out your camera and shoot. However, most smartphones do not have the same convenience as you need to unlock, launch camera and then shoot. Galaxy J5 takes care of this need as user only have to double press the home button and camera app will be launched.
Built-in front camera flash: There are few handsets in the market as of now, which come with a powerful front camera and an LED flash to go with the same. Galaxy J5 comes with a 5 Megapixels camera on the front and a single LED flash to go with it.
Smart Manager for performance enhancement: Samsung has always been critcised for its bloated Touchwiz UI and made an attempt to smooth out the performance. Samsung integrated the Smart manager in the UI to enhance the performance.
Ultra Power Saving Mode: The handset has a smaller 2600 mAh battery under its rear panel, which might not appeal to many users. However, the Ultra Power Saving Mode of the handset is designed to preserve battery and help it last longer.
Slightly weak battery: We have already mentioned that the handset comes with a weak 2600 mAh battery powering it. If you are a heavy user, you might find yourself looking for a charger even before the day is over. This is a big deal breaker to a lot of handset users in India and might deter purchasing decision.
