    Phone plans as individual as you are

    We're putting you in control of your phone plan. So you can choose how much you pay upfront, how much data you need, and how long you want to pay off your phone for. Choose anywhere between 3 and 36 months – the total cost of your device will be the same. Changed your mind? No problem. You can flex your data allowance up and down, once a month. And if you fancy upgrading, just pay off your Device Plan at any time and choose a new phone. Find out more.

    Leave your wallet at home

    Free up your pockets, with the Galaxy J5. It comes with Android Pay, so you can pay for those everyday essentials securely, with your phone. No need to carry cash or credit cards everywhere. Just hold your phone up to the card machine and you're good to go.

    Take dazzling photos

    From cute pictures of your kids to holiday snaps on the beach, capture your precious moments in high quality with the J5. It's got 13MP front and rear cameras, so you can take dazzling photos from any angle. Partying all night? Don't worry – you can still take great quality pictures, even in low light. And your photos will automatically be backed up to Google Photos, so you can keep them safe and share them across your different devices.

    Show it off

    From phone calls on the bus to checking emails in the office, we spend a lot of time with our phones in our hands. So you need a phone that feels comfortable and looks great – just like the Galaxy J5. The glass screen is round at the edges, so it looks sleek and feels seamless. And unlike other smartphones, it's even smooth at the back because the camera doesn't stick out.

    Store more of your apps and snaps

    Ever had to delete an app to free up more space for photos? The J5 has up to 256GB expandable memory, so you can store more of the things you love without having to delete apps or games. Just pop in a MicroSD card and you'll have loads more space for your snaps, videos and music.
