Software, Design, Display
The Galaxy J5 Pro is a dual-SIM Android Nougat device which, as pointed out in the introductory part of this piece, supports LTE.
It ships as a well-built metal device in an aesthetically pleasing clamshell available in about 4 color options — Black, Blue, Gold, and Pink.
The display is a 5.2-inch Super AMOLED display having a 720p resolution (720 x 1280 pixels) and a resulting pixel density of about 282 pixels per inch (282 PPI).
Protection wise, the J5 Pro doesn’t ship with a Gorilla Glass screen hence, you might have to make do with an aftermarket tempered glass protection.
Performance, Hardware, Cameras
In the ‘memory department’, the Samsung Galaxy J5 Pro ships with just 2GB of RAM and about 16 gigabytes of onboard storage (although there’s a 3GB RAM + 32GB ROM version, it’s just more expensive).
If you’d be needing much more than the 16GB aboard the device (out of which only 10GB is usable, by the way), you can throw in a micro SD card (capacities up to 256GB) to level up your storage ability.
For juice, the device relies on a non-removable 3000 mAh Li-Ion battery while for security, it has a front mounted (on the home button) fingerprint reader.
Finally, the cameras:
The front-facing shooter of the J5 Pro is a 13-megapixel lens having an aperture width of f/1.9 and a dedicated flashlight.
The rear camera is also a 13-megapixel camera, but with a wider aperture (f/1.7) and a brighter LED flashlight which sits directly beneath it.
Samsung Galaxy J5 Pro Price in Nigeria
The Samsung Galaxy J5 Pro can be picked up in Nigeria right now for between ₦78,000 – ₦100,000.
The final amount you shell out for the device is dependent on the model you’d be getting (16+2 or 32+3), the store you’re purchasing from, and your location in the country.
