Samsung Galaxy J7 was released back in June 2015 and, according to reports, in June 2016 the Samsung Galaxy C5 will hit the stores. In case you’re interested in purchasing a high-quality mid-range device, these are two of the best options, but you’ll decide which one is worth your money. So, check out this comparison, it will help you take the right decision.


The Galaxy J7 measures 152.2×78.7×7.5mm and weights 171 grams. Its design is not special, as Samsung has used the traditional polycarbonate material for both the removable back and the frame. The new Galaxy C5 is slimmer and lighter as it measures 145.9x72x6.7mm and weights only 143 grams, but its design is controversial, as it imitates Apple’s iPhones or HTC’s One models. It’s not a problem that the body is made of metal. The problem is that on the back that is curved on the edges are two horizontal thin lines at the top and bottom, and this is not an original idea.


The Galaxy J7 features a super AMOLED display of 5.5-inch that supports a resolution of 1280×720 pixels at 267 ppi. On the other hand, the Galaxy C5 has a smaller super AMOLED display of 5.2-inch that supports a higher resolution of 1920×1080 pixels at 424 ppi.
