The Samsung Galaxy J5 has a 5 inch display with a resolution of 720 x 1280 pixels, putting it in line with the same resolution of the Galaxy J7. On the inside, however, it’s a different story. Whilst the J7 was powered by a Snapdragon 615 hexa core processor and 1.5GB of RAM, the J5 utilizes a Snapdragon 410 which performs a decent chunk worse than the 615. The J5 also has 1.5GB of RAM so no sacrifices have been made here fortunately. The J5 also has a smaller 2,600mAh battery capacity but with a smaller display size the different in battery life between the J5 and the J7 is fairly small.
