In the ‘memory department’, the Samsung Galaxy J5 Pro ships with just 2GB of RAM and about 16 gigabytes of onboard storage (although there’s a 3GB RAM + 32GB ROM version, it’s just more expensive).

If you’d be needing much more than the 16GB aboard the device (out of which only 10GB is usable, by the way), you can throw in a micro SD card (capacities up to 256GB) to level up your storage ability.

For juice, the device relies on a non-removable 3000 mAh Li-Ion battery while for security, it has a front mounted (on the home button) fingerprint reader.

Finally, the cameras:
