Reviews for the Samsung Galaxy J5 Prime
The Galaxy J5 Prime is a nice addition to Samsung’s J series thanks to its premium build, attractive design, vibrant display, capable camera, and LTE connectivity. However, the price tag seems too much for what it can offer especially if you compare it to other smartphones in this budget. At Php9,990, it’s going to have a hard time competing with other devices in the price range like the Vivo V5 Lite, ASUS Zenfone 3 Max, OPPO A39, and the Huawei GR3 (2017). To conclude, the J5 Prime decent phone, it’s just not priced competitively.

If you’ve been on the hunt for a mid-ranged smartphone at around the Php 8k to Php 12k price point then you know how stacked the competition is. You’ve got really good options with Huawei’s GR3 2017, the 5.5-inch Zenfone Max, or all the other phones we may have mentioned in our article for the Top 5 Smartphones Under Php 10,000. This puts the Samsung Galaxy J5 Prime, which is priced at Php 9,990, in a really tough position when compared to other offerings from different brands and within Sammy’s own pool of J series phones.

That’s pretty much it for this quick review for the Samsung Galaxy J5 Prime, which is priced at Php 9,990. We recently reviewed the Galaxy J2 Prime and, if that more of an entry-level to Samsung’s Galaxy line of smartphones, the J5 Prime offers a step towards Sammy’s higher-tiered, mid-ranged phones. Check back in a couple of days for its full review to see how it holds up.
