IMS, the authorized distributor of Samsung smartphones in Nepal, launched the Galaxy E-series few days ago & we had a chance to have a quick look at these phones at the experience store of Samsung Nepal.
We normally don’t agree with the pricing of Samsung phones, but this time Samsung prices the E-series sensibly. Galaxy E5 is priced at Rs.27,500 and the Galaxy E7 is priced at Rs. 32,500.
Lately, Samsung has been shifting from plastic body to more premium lineups and the Samsung Galaxy E5 and E7 is no exception. E-series offers 7.3mm-thin aluminum back and feels premium. As far as the specs are concerned, the Samsung Galaxy E7 features a 5.5 inch 720p Super AMOLED display, a quad-core 64 bit SoC (Snapdragon 410) running at 1.2GHz, 2GB RAM, 16GB on-board storage (with microSD card support), a 13MP rear snapper and a 5MP front-facing selfie camera. The phone is powered by a 2,950mAh non-removable battery.
The Samsung Galaxy E5, on the other hand, has a 5 inch 720p Super AMOLED display, a quad-core64 bit SoC (Snapdragon 410) running at 1.2GHz, 1.5GB of RAM, 16GB of on-board storage (with microSD card support), an 8MP rear shooter and a 5MP front-facing one. The phone is powered by a 2,400mAh non-removable battery.
