Reviews for the Samsung Galaxy C5

Samsung Galaxy C5 review
Source: GSM Arena English
Frankly, it is hard to pin down exactly what Samsung is doing with its ever-expanding midrange device lineup. We are quite certain that most everything comes down to marketing, a lot of which is region-dependent as well. However, with an "A" branch, "J" branch, "On" branch and now the "C" as well, all expanding and updating with "2016" versions all over the place, it is honestly hard to keep track.

This display is quite big for a smartphone but frequently used for smartphones.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

Only few smartphones are more lightweight than this.

Samsung: The Samsung Group is composed of numerous international businesses, all united under the Samsung brand in South Korea. The meaning of the Korean word Samsung is "tristar" or "three stars". The Samsung brand is one of the most important brands of South Korea. Samsung is an international notebook manufacturer of medium size according market shares and reviews.

In 2015 and 2016, Samsung had a market share of around 24-25% in the global smartphone market and was undisputed market leader. In the laptop sector, Samsung is on the 8th place in the global manufacturer rankings from 2014-2016 with 1.7-2.7%.

In 2016 Samsung slipped into a crisis due to exploding smartphone batteries and a failed recall action.

72%: This rating is bad. Most notebooks are better rated. This is not a recommendation for purchase.
