Samsung is easily the most recognised manufacturer of Android smartphones in the world. They have managed to secure that position by providing a huge range of products that mean they have something for practically everyone.
The widely advertised Galaxy S phones can set you back up to an over £600, but what if you want something more affordable? For the budget-conscious, Samsung has the Galaxy J range, and the J5 is the mid-range phone designed to provide enviable performance at this price.
The Samsung brand promises high build quality and lengthy support with a full 24-month manufacturer's warranty. You'll also find some excellent specifications under the hood.
Samsung's high definition Super AMOLED screen technology delivers deeper blacks and a higher dynamic colour range than other budget phones. Thanks to how AMOLED technology works, battery life is also improved in comparison to the LCD screens on rival smartphones.
The 13-megapixel camera with f/1.9 aperture takes advantage of several year's worth of imaging development. With decent low-light performance and a more advanced app than you'll see on several other cheaper phones, the J5 doesn't skimp here - where other budget devices do.
At 3,100 mAh, Samsung has also included a large battery. Coupled with system apps to lower power consumption, this is plenty enough for most to get through well over a full day's use.
Samsung's new Smart Manager application is also available. This is a simple to access hub that shows useful information such as available storage, memory use, battery power and download management.
*Since September 2013, Samsung has implemented a 'region lock' on all new stock. Clove Technology only has access to models designed for the “European” region, which covers both UK and mainland Europe. The compatible countries are listed below**.
For correct operation, this handset should be activated inside one of these countries with a SIM card issued for use there. The device will then be able to accept SIM cards from outside of these countries.
Activation requires turning the device on for the first time & completing set-up with the SIM installed, then completing at least 5 minutes of voice call(s) with this SIM.
Without activation, you may still use the device outside of these countries when 'roaming' - using a SIM card from the listed countries.
If this activation procedure is not followed then the device will lock when first attempted to be used with a SIM card from outside of these regions. Local Samsung support may provide a code to unlock such handsets.
**All member states of the E.E.A and the following additional territories: Albania, Andorra, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia (F.Y.R.O.M), Monaco, Montenegro, San Marino, Serbia and Vatican City.
IF YOUR CHOSEN DELIVERY COUNTY IS NOT LISTED, CLOVE TECHNOLOGY WILL BREAK THE SEAL ON THIS DEVICE AND ACTIVATE IT. YOU MUST AGREE TO THIS PROCEDURE IN THE CHECKOUT BEFORE THE SALE WILL COMPLETE.
