The Indian market is ready to received two new handsets created by Samsung, they have 4G LTE support and come loaded with Android 5.1.1 Lollipop, but their specs are different. Also, one of these devices is a phablet and has a better rear camera, but if you want to know everything about the two models, check out this comparison.

Designs And Displays

Regardless of their size, these devices feature a coarse-textured back available in gold and black colors and the biggest advantage is the metal frame surrounding their sides. The Galaxy On5 is the smaller handset which measures 142.3×72.1×8.5mm and weights 149grams, while the On7 is the phablet version which is sized at 151.8×77.5×8.2mm and weights 172grams. Both screens were built using TFT technology and they support a resolution of 720x1280pixels, but the On5 has a 5-inch screen supporting a pixel density of 288ppi, while On7’s 5.5-inch screen offers a slightly lower pixel density of 267ppi.


Both models have 8GB of built-in storage which can be expanded up to 128GB with a microSD card, and they support 1.5GB of RAM. But the small On5 handset is using Samsung’s Exynos 3475 quad-core 1.3 GHz Cortex-A7 processor, while the phablet received the 1.2GHz quad-core Snapdragon 410 processor.

Cameras and Batteries

The quality of the selfies is pretty normal, when taking them outdoors, during the day. The resolution is 5MP, as it’s found on most of the new phones, but when it comes to rear cameras, while the features are identical, consisting of autofocus, LED flash and Full HD video capture at 30fps, the On5 has a main camera with a lower resolution of 8MP, while its sibling supports 13MP, resolutions are not very important, because they don’t influence the quality of the images, since they depend only on the software.

The batteries are removable and have capacities of 2600mAh and 3000mAh respectively, being charged via the usual Micro-USB.


In India, the prices for the Galaxy On5 and Galaxy On7 are Rs 8,990 ($136) and Rs 10,990 ($166).
