Let’s face it – both the Samsung Galaxy A5 and J7 have been models that took the world by storm – especially in the Eastern marketplace. With millions of orders, they easily rank among the most popular Samsung models (yes, the Galaxy S series as well!).

But what is so special about these two models, besides from the fact that they offer a great value for money?

First and foremost, both of these models have been updated with completely new 2017 editions. And that is one of the things that makes them special. As for the other details…

Basically, both the Galaxy J7 and A5 are models that have been released over the past year. They are quite identical in terms of their look – the A5 is slightly curvier and with 5.2 inch screen compared to the 5.5 inch J7 model.

When it comes to their screen resolution and size, the A5 packs 1080 x 1920 display with 424 ppi) , while the J7 pacs a 720 x 1280 pixels (with 267 ppi). This makes the A5 a bit ahead from the J7 – but overall, both phones use a super AMOLED capacitative touchscreen that is a step forward in technology.



The GPU and CPU are quite identical as well, packing an octa-core processor that is slightly bigger in the A5 (1.9 GhZ compared to 1.6 GhZ) and a bigger storage and RAM memory – the A5 has 32 GB storage and 3 GB RAM, while the J7 is behind with 2GB RAM and 16 GB storage. However, both of the phones have slots for extra storage.

Last but not the least is the camera, where the A5 again outperforms the J7 with its 16-megapixel front and rear cameras. This makes the A5 probably the phone with the sharpest duo of cameras, and again proves that it is a class above the J7 model (which by the way features a 13MP rear camera and a 5MP front one).
