Samsung On5 Pro - A complete Review

Design of the Phone

 Samsung mobile phone design is  almost same design pattern for almost all of its budget and mid range mobile phones.
The device looks old in terms of the design, the build quality also looks more like average.
The phone comes with chrome finishing on the sides similar to the J series.  The front panel houses the 5-inch display.

The phone comes with a 5 inch HD display (1280 X 720p)  TFT LCD panel instead of the regular IPS LCD panel .
The TFT panel provides a decent display for the device. 
Brightness levels are sufficient, 
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.

 The 8MP rear camera.
 The phone comes in gold and black colour ,  While the device is pretty good to hold for the form factor, and have 120 degree camera selfie angel,the   design and build quality is pretty average considering the competition is offering better design and build its almost the same of its previous model.
There is an option to shoot FHD videos but the handset is recording videos in max 720p resolution.
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 runs on Android 6.0.1 which is the latest version of     Lollipop.
 The skinned UI offers a good amount of features including a custom notification 
 The phone comes with an app drawer .
 The phone also comes with Smart Manager which can manage the battery storage,    RAM and also make the device secure. It also has the new S Bike mode introduced with J3 (2016) which is basically a do not disturb mode when you are driving or riding a bike. The phone also comes with ultra data saving mode and ultra battery saver mode which are quite handy.

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.

The phone supports 4G LTE and has dual SIM card support. The call quality on the phone was decent and we didn’t notice any issues with calls. The speaker output was decent for a mid range phone.
The phone comes with 16GB of internal storage and out of which close to 10.5GB was available in first boot. Samsung has again upgraded the storage on this device. While you can expand the storage via micro SD card, but you cannot install apps directly onto the SD card. One of the missing features on the On5 pro compared to competition is the fingerprint scanner.

Battery Life:
Samsung Galaxy On5 Pro features a 2600 mAh 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.With mixed heavy usage the battery will last for up to 1 day.

Special features-
Dual Sim
Music Player
Proximity Sensor 

Over All :
This phone is not for high end gamers but if you are a mid range gamer then this phone fits for you
 Back cover is very like plastic stuff but does not feel that bad.
 UI is good and very light.
 Performance is ok so far
 Camera basic but not for the photo lovers.
 Phone is good who wants a nice mid range budget Phone .
