The truth is The Galaxy J family has been very successful in the Smartphone market. Samsung knows very well how to reach people, what it has to offer each of them and it is for this reason that it is the number one company in terms of mobile device sales.
This year in May specifically they released the Galaxy J5 which is an improved version in every sense of the Grand Prime, from hardware to the materials with which it is made. The big question or rather doubt that many have is that what are the differences of both phones in addition to the year in which they were launched. It’s good to know because in this way you know what is best for you when you go to buy a new mid-range device.
So next I’ll start with the differences of two mobiles that are highly compared in various parts of the world due to the range and price that have.
We will start with the dimensions, the J5 is 145.8×72.3×8.1mm and weighs 159 grams Although it must be found that the materials are frame metal and plastic. On the other hand the Grand Prime has the following measurements, 144.8×72.1×8.6mm and weighs 156 grams, the materials are all from Plastik. In this case, the one who would win is the J5 since the material is much stronger and is larger.
The J5 has a 5.2-inch Super AMOLED screen with a resolution of 720×1280 pixels while the Grand Prime features a 5.0-inch capacitive TFT screen and resolution 540×960 pixels. Therefore the J5 is much better as it has a better resolution and you will see everything in good HD quality.
Software and hardware
In what is the Chipset has the same, Snapdragon 410, the CPU is Quad-core 1.2 GHz although the difference is that the J5 has Cortex-A53. What the GPU would be is Adreno in both but in the Grand it is 405 and in the J5 it is 306. Finally, the RAM of 1GB for the prime and 2GB for the J5.
The J5 has Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow so you have the latest version while Prime has the 4.4 KitKat. Obviously the one who gets the point is the J5 since the latest version of Android has more security.
The Prime’s camera is 8 megapixels with autofocus, LED flash and a 5 megapixel front camera, the J5 has a 13 megapixel rear, autofocus, LED flash and the front is 5MP but with LED flash. In this case, you can see that the J5’s camera is of better quality.
In both mobiles the battery is removable, but the J5 has a longer duration since it is 3100 while that of the Grand is 2600.
According to these differences it can be safely said that the best option when choosing a new mid-range mobile and Samsung is the J5.
