Samsung Galaxy E7 vs Galaxy E5 vs Galaxy S5: intergalactic specs comparison

7

Just as we told you a couple of weeks ago, Samsung has been secretly working on a new mid-range smartphone lineup for 2015 over the past few months or so. Well, today Samsung removed the shroud of mystery and revealed the Galaxy E family, which consist of the Samsung Galaxy E5 and Galaxy E7, two predominantly mid-ranged devices that are cheaper alternatives to the higher-positioned Galaxy A5 and Galaxy A7.

Skipping through the specs sheets of both new members of the broad galaxy of Samsung devices reveals their nitty-gritty - the 720p Super AMOLED displays and the quad-core chipsets running at 1.2GHz are definitely not made of "flagship material", even as per last year's standards. 

Thus, it won't be fair quite fair, but we simply have to put them against Samsung's battle-tested Galaxy S5 veteran, which is gradually starting to get a little long in the tooth. That's it, we said it - check out our full-blown specs comparison between the S5 and some of its newest cousins, the E7 and the E5
