Samsung Galaxy On5 Pro

The Samsung Galaxy On5 Pro and On7 Pro are the company’s latest budget Android smartphones meant exclusively for the Indian market. Both the phones are nearly identical to the On5 and On7 launched last year but increase the memory to 2GB and double the storage to 16GB.

Samsung Galaxy On5 Pro smartphone was launched in July 2016. The phone comes with a 5.00-inch touchscreen display with a resolution of 720 pixels by 1280 pixels.

The Samsung Galaxy On5 Pro is powered by 1.3GHz quad-core and it comes with 2GB of RAM. The phone packs 16GB of internal storage that can be expanded up to 128GB via a microSD card. As far as the cameras are concerned, the Samsung Galaxy On5 Pro packs a 8-megapixel primary camera on the rear and a 5-megapixel front shooter for selfies.

The Samsung Galaxy On5 Pro runs Android 6.0 and is powered by a 2600mAh non removable battery. It measures 142.30 x 72.10 x 8.50 (height x width x thickness) and weighs 149.00 grams.

The Samsung Galaxy On5 Pro is a dual SIM (GSM and GSM) smartphone that accepts two Micro-SIM. Connectivity options include Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth, FM, 3G, 4G (with support for Band 40 used by some LTE networks in India). Sensors on the phone include Proximity sensor, Ambient light sensor, Accelerometer, and Gyroscope.

As far as budget devices go, the Galaxy On5 Pro is certainly not the company’s worst attempt yet. On5 Pro is fairly usable and it should be enough to keep most people happy. But the competition is so intense and the phone manufacturers are already so many, that the big guns can no longer expect to get a prize for just showing up looking good.
