Samsung Galaxy J5 Prime lands in PH

The smaller sibling of the Galaxy J7 Prime has finally reached the Philippine shores.

The Samsung Galaxy J5 Prime looks identical to its sibling but has a smaller display at just 5 inches with 720p resolution. Other specifications are also toned-down to a quad-core processor, 2GB RAM, and 16GB of expandable storage. Camera-wise, it’s got a 13MP rear shooter and a 5MP selfie camera. Since it’s got a smaller body, the battery is just at 2400mAh.


It still runs Android 6.0 Marshmallow with Samsung’s skin on top complete with 4G LTE, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth connectivity.

    samsung needs to offset cost of note 7 recall so higher than usual SRPs…

    ang advantage lang ng samsung ay yung samsung switch app (mm and up), kies 3 for android kk to lp, kies for legacy android devices:
    backup (and restore) apps/pics/videos from samsung device to PC
    update samsung phone.

    ZEEZZUS, 10k for this? Vivo and Oppo looks cheap.
    Xiaomi is coming. now armed with a better strategy. Everybody should sit up and take notice.
    The costly brands will feel the pain. The cheapos will feel the heat.
    Cherry pie, Starmobile, My phony, and O+ still existing? Being cheap is no longer safe. Better
    arm yourself with a good counter. Change is coming.
