The all-metal Samsung Galaxy J5 Prime looks very sturdy and the home button is embedded with a fingerprint scanner. The J5 Prime is a little heavy for its size at 143 grams. Its front is a 2.5D rounded-edge Corning Gorilla Glass which gives it a premium feel. The signature home button can be seen upfront placed between the Recents and Back capacitive buttons. The phone has its power button on the right and volume rocker on the left. The 3.5mm audio jack and Micro-USB charging port are on the bottom. What sets the design of this phone apart are the curved edges giving it a premium feel. The phone’s rears seem plain other than the primary camera and accompanying LED flash on. Running Android 6.0 Marshmallow, the Galaxy J5 Prime uses Samsung’s own TouchWiz skin, and they come with the usual apps from Google. The Galaxy J5 Prime features a 5-inch HD (720×1280-pixel) IPS display with 2.5D Corning Gorilla Glass, and runs on a 1.4GHz quad-core processor coupled with 2GB of RAM. An added feature is the support for dual sims. The Galaxy J5 Prime also sports a 13-megapixel rear camera with autofocus, f/1.9 aperture and an LED flash, but has a 5-megapixel front camera.

Release Date and Price of Samsung Galaxy J5 Prime in Pakistan
The J5 Prime was released in October 2016 and a box-packed mobile currently sells for PKR 26,000.
The display on the J5 Prime is also vibrant and bright, with decent visibility under the sun. The smartphone is pretty responsive to touch inputs and particularly quick during multitasking. The front camera was able to take good selfies. We found the images clicked by J5 Prime under artificial lighting to also be quite crisp, with a good amount of detail. We did however notice slight blurring in the corners of images. However, some users have mentioned problems with battery life and instantaneous crashing of the mobile phone.
