Both come with Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow out of the box, offer 13MP cameras at the back and 5MP front shooters, and feature a metal frame around the sides. The phones will be up for sale starting later today on Flipkart.
The Galaxy J5 2016 offers a 5.2-inch 720p Super AMOLED display, 1.2GHz quad-core Snapdragon 410 SoC, 2GB of RAM, 16GB internal memory, microSD slot (up to 128GB), and a 3100mAh battery.

Based on the specs, the Galaxy J7 sounds like a better bet as you get a larger screen and a bigger battery for just ₹2,000 more. What do you guys think of the phones on offer?
