Samsung J5 (2017) or J7 (2017) - which is better?

Samsung Galaxy J5 (2017) and J7 (2017) are two of the current smartphone bestsellers - find out which is better or which one should you buy

J5 or J7

I really like the Samsung J5 (2017) and J7 (2017) and most probably I will buy one of these very soon. The question here is which one should I buy.

The J7 has the advantage of having larger 5.5 inch Full HD Super Amoled display (compared to the smaller 5.2 inch HD only in the J5) and more RAM - 3GB vs 2GB in the J5. But on the other hand J5 (2017) is much more compact and fits much better in the hand or in the pocket.

Another thing that gives the advantage to the J7 is the always-on display which is a really nice feature when lacking LED notification light (both models) but consumes much of the battery life if actively used.

Check out how the J5 and J7 perform in real world testing in the next two video reviews:

I am quite positive that no matter which one of these smartphones you pick it is going to be a good choice. Find out how my Samsung Galaxy J5 2016 performed for more than a year to see how good smartphones from Samsung's J-series really are.
