Samsung Galaxy J5 vs J7


What’s different?

5.2” screen for the J5 and 5.5” for J7

J5 weighing 159g and J7 170g

Snapdragon 410 powers the J5, a Quad-core 1.2GHz CPU with Adreno 306 GPU

Snapdragon 617 powers the J7, an Octa-core 1.6Ghz CPU with Adreno 405 GPU

J5 has 3100mAh battery and J7 has 3300mAh


While the two devices have very short offerings in terms of its price range when compared to the other device in the market of the same price cap, the difference between the J5 and J7 is not very vast.

5.5” for J7 with HD Display is very poor while 1.2GHz for J5 is weak for gaming and other multitasking.

Between the two if you have to pick, if at all you are a Samsung fan, then go for the requirement of your screen size, as both of them lack in terms of battery, processor, RAM, internal storage when kept in a battle between the others in the market.

Therefore, look out for other devices in the market instead of going for the either of the two.
