The new Galaxy J series are the first smartphone from Samsung boasting LED flash for its front snapper. The Samsung Galaxy J7 is very similar to the Samsung Galaxy J5, starting from the like of LTE support, dual-SIM capabilities, 1.5GB of RAM, 16GB of storage, a 13MP rear-facing camera with an aperture of f/1.9and a 5MP front-facing camera with front-facing flashes which presumably are aimed at the selfie lover who feels that maybe front-facing cameras could do with more illumination, but comes with a larger display than the Galaxy J5.

The major diffrences between the Samsung  Galaxy J7 and Samsung  Galaxy J5 is the screen size. While the screen of the J7 diagonally measures 5.5-inch HD screen resolution of 1280×720, the screen found on the J5 measures just 5-inch, the J5 measures just 5-inch HD screen resolution of 1280×720. The weight of both device are not too different. While the J7 weighs 168 g, the J5 weighs 149 g.

The two new galaxy J series have its battery based on the size of the screen. You know what i mean. The bigger the screen, the higher the battery consumption. So we would say that Samsung Mobile had put this into consideration. The J7 with a bigger screen sports a 3000mAh Li-Ion battery while the J5 with just little difference in term of screen comes wiith a 2600mAh Li-Ion battery capacity that is considered okay for a device on Android OS v5.1 (Lollipop) with TouchWiz UI. Both the device had been tested to last up to 342 hours in standby.
