The budget phone Samsung Galaxy On5 priced at AU$213 (Rs 10,000) is probably packed with enough high-end specs to challenge any other budget phone today.  

It’s one of the latest devices in the smartphone market’s most lucrative segment designed to target those looking for a smartphone with great usability. A quick glance at the On5’s specs will let you decide whether to buy it or not, reports Dnaindia.

The device feels light because of its all-plastic body and is detailed with artificial chrome frame combined with textured faux-leather. As for the external configurations, the On5 has an unconventional setting with the headphone socket placed at the bottom.

Hailed as a user-friendly device, the On5 has an appealing 5-inch display screen. It features a resolution of 720 x 1280 that renders lucid details of images and videos. Its 1.3 GHz Samsung Exynos processor accelerates the performance of various features with Android’s latest update Lollipop 5.1 running at its core.

The phone’s inbuilt 4.3 GB memory can be expanded to 8 GB via a microSDcard. Camera buffs get plenty of reasons to love the phone since it has an 8 MP rear camera that delivers sharp details. Adjust any underexposed image with the “Pro” mode that helps bring a striking balance between white colour and ISO.

The phone boasts of an amazing sharp and bright screen with subtle colours, thanks to its TFT screen technology. There’s no problem reading text even in intense sunlight. You have to do away with an average battery life, however, states GSMarena.

Today, most phones come with dual SIM and the new On5 is no exception. It hosts two SIM slots supported by LTE networks. Except for a few drawbacks, the On5 is quite an affordable and ideal device to have.
