Design and Display

When it comes to design there is no difference between the J5 and J7. They both feature the similar S7-like design on the frontage with bent antenna lines on the rear side. The back camera/flash outline features a vertical design opposing to the traditional horizontal exhibit that you see on most Samsung phones.

In terms of display, both the J5 and J7 feature a Super AMOLED display. The J5 has a 5.2″ 720p (1280 x 720) display screen while the J7 provide a 5.5″ 1080p (1920 x 1080) resolution display.

A major variation between the two phones is the IP 54 water spray resistance for the J7, which the J5 doesn’t include.
