83.2% Samsung Galaxy J5 (2017) Duos Smartphone Review | Notebookcheck
All good things... With the update of its attractive Galaxy J series, we have the third generation of the J5 in our test. Samsung has radically changed the design and otherwise performs meaningful fine tuning. Fans of removable batteries will be disappointed, since the battery is now also built into the J5.
