Galaxy C5 marks the beginning of another mid-range lineup from Samsung
Pros & Cons
  • massive 4 GB RAM
  • NFC
  • Non removable battery

The South Korean handset maker, Samsung is now coming up with new series of mid-range smartphones apart from its J-series. This new series is called C-series and Samsung is already all set to launch a couple of smartphones in this lineup. Samsung Galaxy C5 is the first handset to be launched by the brand under this series and it looks promising. Here is a brief overview of the handset for those who might be interested in this one.

Why Should You buy?

Good Cameras: It goes without saying that the highlight of this handset is the 16 MP camera on the rear panel of the device. This is the same camera that featured on Samsung's flagship device like Galaxy S5 and Galaxy S6. A must have camera for anyone who use their smartphones for daily photography.

Solid Build Quality: Samsung Galaxy C series comes with a solid metal build and Galaxy C5 is no exception. The design of this handset is quite similar to Galaxy S6 with the same sleek design and camera hump. This way the handset feels a lot more premium then it actually is.

Fingerprint scanner: This handset comes with the same fingerprint scanner from Galaxy S6 as well, which exists on the home button at front. While reviews do not particularly praise the fingerprint scanner on Samsung handsets, it is good to have one at your disposal.

Good performance specifications: Samsung has equipped this device with a powerful Snapdragon 617 Octa-core processor and 4 GB of RAM. This means that the performance of the handset is quit commendable and at par with most handsets in the market.

Why Should You Not buy?

Hybrid SIM card slot: Most smartphone makers in the market now are opting for the hybrid SIM card slot, which is convenient for them as it allows them to keep the device profile sleek and offer expandable storage as well. However, this is a drawback for users who want to expand their storage and use dual SIM at the same time.

Any Alternative?

LeEco Le Max 2: When you have a device like LeEco Le Max 2 at your disposal in the same price tag, there is no reason to go for the Galaxy C5 unless you want the brand value that comes with it. This handset comes with faster processor, much bigger display, 21 Megapixels rear camera and larger battery. It also look quite similar to the Galaxy C5 and hence should get a preference over it.
