Samsung Galaxy J5 and J7 (2016) now in the Philippines


Samsung Philippines has finally launced its new Galaxy J Series in the local market, the Galaxy J5 and Galaxy J7 2016. These two smartphones, apart from having noticeable updates and upgrades from previous year's iterations, they also bear new functionalities that help Pinoy users to enjoy more memory, much better signal reception and save more money on data usage. And they are now in metal frames rather than plastic casing.

Two of the new features in this 2016 versions of Galaxy J devices are the Signal Max, this is for wider signal coverage and it is an RF technology that enhances call quality even in remote areas where signal is a bit of a problem. So whether you are hiking or relaxing on some faraway beach, calling your contacts will never be a challenge anymore.

Next is the Ultra Data Saving, this helps by optimizing the data you access from the internet on these phones. According to Samsung, it saves up to 50% on mobile data by compressing applications and browsers content and limiting the mobile data to only selected mobile apps. Ultra Data Saving also frees up RAM for an enhanced performance. With that, this feature also helps the battery to consume less energy, thus prolonging the battery life which are already more than 3000mAh each. 

Do these two smartphones support microSD card for additional memory storage? Yes they do, and what is more exciting here is that Samsung is bundling these devices with 32GB of memory card each. That makes 48GB of storage space right out of the box.
