Samsung On5 Pro Review
This phone is absolutely best in this range from Samsung. Superior build quality. Mid range budget phone. Does daily operations smoothly. I purchased the smartphone from Amazon India and it cost me Rs. 7,990 which is quite reasonable price with the specifications like this.
There hasn’t been any design changes in the Samsung’s mid range and budget segment for quite some time now. Samsung has been maintaining the same design for almost all of its budget and mid-range phones and same is the case with Galaxy On5 Pro. The device looks dated in terms of the design and the build quality also looks average. It has almost similar design as that of Galaxy On5 released last year and there isn’t any change.
The phone comes with chrome finishing on the sides similar to the J series. The power button is located on the right side while the volume keys are on the left panel. The audio jack and micro USB charging slot are located at the bottom. The front panel houses the 5-inch display, three buttons with the physical home button.
The phone comes with a 5 inch HD display (1280 X 720p) with a TFT LCD panel instead of the regular IPS LCD panel found on most of the phone today. The TFT panel provides a decent display for the device. While the brightness levels are sufficient, the colors are not impressive, particularly when you see the AMOLED display on Galaxy J5. Samsung has opted for the cheaper TFT panel and the display looks out-dated. There is no additional protection offered on the display. The touch response quite decent. Similar to J5, the On5 Pro also misses out on ambient light sensor and it comes with an outdoor mode.
Samsung Galaxy On5 Pro runs on Android 6.0.1 which is the latest version of Lollipop and has the custom Touchwiz UI from Samsung. The skinned UI offers a good amount of features including a custom notification center which is customizable. The phone comes with an app drawer and Samsung has not bundled any bloatware with the phone and hence you don’t have unnecessary apps taking up space or running in the background. The UI is pretty similar to what we see on other Samsung devices.
The Samsung Galaxy On5 Pro runs on Exynos Quad core processor with 2GB RAM. Samsung has improved the RAM from 1.5GB on On5 to 2GB on On5 Pro. The overall performance of the device was fairly good on moderate usage and we did not notice any issues. The software is optimized for the hardware. The gaming performance of the device was not that great and we encountered lag and frame drops when playing graphic rich games. The heat generated while playing games was considerably low.
Multi-tasking was decent on the phone, we ran multiple apps in the background including games and there was close to 1GB of RAM available.
While most of the OEMs are concentrating on providing great camera experience even in budget segment with 13MP camera, Samsung has opted for an 8MP sensor for the rear camera and a 5MP front-facing selfie camera. The camera interface is exactly the same as that of J series and comes with auto mode, pro mode, panorama, continuous shot and beauty shot.
You can also take photos with effects. The interface offers decent features for a budget smartphone.
Now talking about the camera performance, it was a mixed bag. While some of the daylight shots came quite good with decent colors, few others had poor color reproduction. So basically the camera quality isn’t consistent. The low light images had lot of noise and weren’t great. The phone can record videos in 1080P and the quality is again average. Here are some of the samples taken with the device.
Samsung Galaxy On5 Pro features a 2600mAh battery and this is good capacity for a 5 inch device in the mid-range segment. The phone does give good battery life in normal usage which includes calls, browsing, email, casual gaming and social networking apps. We tested the battery on multiple instances and found that if you are an average user, you can easily get a day or more with the battery on this device.
Samsung On5 Pro comes with the MRP 9,190 (mention on the Box) but you can buy this smartphone from from Amazon India at Rs. 7,990.
- 6.0 marshmallow
- No heating issues
- Good camera
- Good battery life
- Speed network
- Low volume.
- While playing games like modern combat ,nfs i am feeling little slow.
My Final Words:
This is surely a good smartphone under eight thousand rupee. Samsung On5 Pro works well while doing multitasking and it can for hours with 2600mAh battery. But on other hand if you are one of those person who really love to play high graphics game like Asphalt 8 and Modern Combat 5 then I must say this smartphone is not made for you.
Best phone at this rate awesome camera in day light, fast processing excellent access to each and every app good internal storage. Overall you will get best brand name smartphone under 8k rupee, go for it.
