If you're looking for a modern and capable smartphone in 2015 that doesn't break the bank, then the Samsung Galaxy J5 could be exactly what you need.
With a 1.2 GHz quad core processor, 1.5GB or RAM and the newest Android 5.1 system, the Galaxy J5 has everything you need to stay connected and perform quickly at all times.
Add to this a highly detailed 13MP camera with Samsung's high class software and you have a phone that would have been top of the range and twice the price just a couple of years ago.
The J5 isn't looking to compete with the flashiest and most expensive phones on the market, pushing the boundaries of modern mobile technology. Instead it's been designed as an affordable and reliable workhouse - the perfect mid-range device to get work done during the day and help you relax with a few games or some social browsing when you wind down.
Running Android 5.1, with Samsung's tried and tested TouchWiz interface, you know the software side of things is top class. It's also compatible with modern technologies and recent additions to Android such as Android Wear smartwatches, Android Auto for cars and wireless streaming with Chromecast or Miracast receivers.
Samsung also cater well for the basics with features their long time fans desire - expandable memory is available - compatible with the newest 128/200GB micro SD cards - for storing pictures, music and video. You'll also find a removable battery, FM radio and global positioning with GPS, GLONASS and Beidou.
*Since September 2013, Samsung have implemented a 'region lock' on all new stock. Clove Technology only have access to models designed for the “European” region, which covers both UK and mainland Europe. The compatible countries are listed below**.
For correct operation, this handset should be activated inside one of these countries with a SIM card issued for use there. The device will then be able to accept SIM cards from outside of these countries.
Activation requires turning the device on for the first time & completing set-up with the SIM installed, then completing at least 5 minutes of voice call(s) with this SIM.
Without activation you may still use the device outside of these countries when 'roaming' - using a SIM card from the listed countries.
If this activation procedure is not followed then the device will lock when first attempted to be used with a SIM card from outside of these regions. Local Samsung support may provide a code to unlock such handsets.
**All member states of the E.E.A and the following additional territories: Albania, Andorra, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia (F.Y.R.O.M), Monaco, Montenegro, San Marino, Serbia and Vatican City.
IF YOUR CHOSEN DELIVERY COUNTY IS NOT LISTED, CLOVE TECHNOLOGY WILL BREAK THE SEAL ON THIS DEVICE AND ACTIVATE IT. YOU MUST AGREE TO THIS PROCEDURE IN THE CHECKOUT BEFORE THE SALE WILL COMPLETE.
