Samsung is introducing a new family for mid-ranged Smartphones, which is the Galaxy E series, what makes it different than other mid range devices by Samsung, and what is special about it? Read on to find out.
We can see some resemblance between the Galaxy E5 And Galaxy A5 phone; both are unibody phones, with very well structured designs. But with few differences, like the frame of the E5 is made of metallic looking plastic instead of actual metal but the back cover is made of aluminum. The dimensions of the phone are 141.6 x 70.2 mm and it's only 7.3 mm thick, which makes it a very slim and elegant looking, and also the phone is very light, it weighs only 140 grams. The phone also comes in variety of colors, white, black and Brown.
For a mid range phone it will be doing well. The Galaxy E5 operates on latest version of android kitkat 4.4.4. , and it will probably get the lollipop update as soon as it's available. And it's working with Samsung's user interface "Touch Wiz". As for the processor, it has a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor at 1.2GHz. when tested, the phone showed very good performance and response speed. The phone has internal storage of 16GB and 1.5GB RAM, but with the system files and so , will leave you aroungd 11.2 GB but you can add a memory card up to 64GB. The phone is a dual sim one, but there's a tricky part, the secondary sim-card slot can be used for either the sim-card or the micro sd card. So you can't use the external memory if you have 2 sim cards in the phone.
The phone supports 3G networks, works on wi-fi, has Bluetooth and USB connections. As for power and battery, it has a 2400 mAh built-in battery, there's no specific timing for how long will it last, but given the screen size of the phone, the battery probably won't last long enough through the day. However Samsung came over that issue and added the Ultra power saving mode to the phone.
The screen of the Galaxy E5 is a 5 inches Super AMOLED, with HD Resolution 1280x720 pixels and screen density of 294 pixel per inch. the screen has great viewing angles , -so when playing games that require tilting the screen. But one disadvantage here is that the screen does not have Auto Brightness option, you'll have to adjust that manually . but there is "outdoor" mode which boost the brightness of the screen in case you are outdoors.
The cameras of the phone are quiet good; the main camera is an 8 Megapixel camera, with different shooting modes and options. And you can shoot full HD videos as well. as for the front facing camera, it's a 5 megapixel one that will be taking great selfies, and also it has a lot of options. And also will be ideal for video calls and video chat .
The phone comes with charger, USB cable, headphones, different size ear buds. User guide and manuals
Samsung's new age mid- range phone is very promising. You will have a great performance with average and above average use. The phone might be a bit over priced but you will have a decent looking phone with great capabilities.
