    “Samsung’s latest mid-ranger scores well on the important aspects”The Galaxy S6 duo, launched earlier this year, marked a huge shift in Samsung’s strategy, as detailed in our review of the S6 edge. However, the brand knows that the only way to make an actual difference in India's price-sensitive market is by targeting the voluminous affordable segment. For this task, Samsung recently introduced the Galaxy J5 and J7 (first impressions), bo...

    Pros: Compact build; Decent hardware; Strong battery backup;

    Cons: Lacks an ambient light sensor and support for USB OTG; 8GB internal storage is barely enough;

    Verdict: The Galaxy S6 duo strengthened Samsung's stronghold in the flagship market, but it’s the Galaxy J5 and J7 that mark a bigger shift in Samsung’s strategy. While the company has multiple offerings across various price points, including the affordab...

    Pros: 4 G
    super amoled screen in indian variation
    Android 5.1.1 OS
    13 MP primary camera and front flash with 5MP in front
    Its okay with 294 ppi

    Cons: Same monotonous old looks
    Highly priced must be under Rs.10,000.00
    RAM is 1.5 which should be 2 GB
    ROM is 8 GB but should be 16 GB
    Processor is 1.2 GHz but should be 1.7.
    NO protective glass screen
    no dolby sound
    Plastic

    Overall: To retain its top position in indian market samsung(presently holding approx 21% while micromax at 19%) was in need to launch a good handset with price within 10k. When lenovo, xiaomi,motorola are offering high value for money phones,samsung again launched a phone with same old design and at price of Rs.11999 (+1= Rs 12000.00) through flipkart only.And its about 10 days passed by, after its official launch in delhi on 16th july,till now none is lucky to get it in hand.Why they took this strategy to falsely increase the demand? Samsung should make it available in open retail shops immediately or people will loss interest in it. Moreover after some 1 months of online selling,this will come to offline market with little high price and then after 4-5 months it will go much down ! please samsung grow up ! You are not making us(customers) obliged by selling phones................... now we have much more options in hand.Motorola moto G 3rd gen will be a much more good option at same price range.Be courageous try other phones and dont spend your hard earned money after samsung.............. let samsung compete to satisfy customers.
