Galaxy Xcover 5 - Features and reviews

Created date: 03/03/2021, 16:15:30, Updated date: 03/03/2021, 16:25:32

We've conducted a detailed review of the Galaxy Xcover 5, looking into its battery, how easy it is to use the camera, and whether the CPU performance is high or low. Not only that, but we've also evaluated how portable and easy to hold it is, as well as how nice the display is.

Features, Performance, and Reviews for the Galaxy Xcover 5

Galaxy Xcover 5's size

The Galaxy Xcover 5 is 2.8inches (71.6mm) wide, 5.8inches (147.1mm) tall, and 0.36inches (9.2mm) thick. I can just barely use it with one hand, so it may feel big to some people.

In giving an overall rating to the Galaxy Xcover 5, while it may be slightly difficult to hold, it shouldn't be much of a problem when considering its general strengths and weaknesses.

The CPU performance of Galaxy Xcover 5

The Galaxy Xcover 5 has an extremely high processing power of 2.0GHz+2.0GHz×8(OctaCore), so it can smoothly run any app out there with ease. Its performance ranks among the top-class of all smartphones released to date. It's well suited to running even the most demanding of 3D games with ease.

The Galaxy Xcover 5 has 4GB of RAM, so it has plenty of space. In rare cases this amount of RAM might not be sufficient, but there shouldn't be too much stress on the machine with this amount.

The Galaxy Xcover 5 has the overall operating speed of a high-end smartphone, so it will hardly ever cause you trouble. But you might need to be careful when using heavy apps like 3D games a lot.

Galaxy Xcover 5's storage capacity

The Galaxy Xcover 5 has 64GB of data storage, which is plenty for taking photos, but for people who frequently shoot videos or have lots of games installed, this may not feel like enough space.

Since the Galaxy Xcover 5 is compatible with SD cards, you'll be able to easily expand your storage capacity; you won't need to worry about how much internal space it has.

Galaxy Xcover 5's screen

The Galaxy Xcover 5 has a 5.3 inch screen. The iPhone X has a big screen, which very likely won't ever trouble you. Just be aware that it's not a very good size for writing long blocks of text.

The screen of the Galaxy Xcover 5 is very clear, so you'll likely have no complaints on that front. However, you should be cautious about viewing things in 4k definition.

The camera function of Galaxy Xcover 5

The Galaxy Xcover 5 has a 16 MP main camera that lets you take photos and videos in a quite high resolution. You may be a little dissatisfied with it in some situations, for example when you want to capture scenery in very high resolution or print out beautiful photos, but this should not be an issue you run into very often.

The Galaxy Xcover 5 comes with a 5 MP pixel camera, which is a standard level. It's perfectly fine for selfies, but may be not as satisfying if you wish to take photos of large numbers of people, or make printouts.

Overall assessment of Galaxy Xcover 5

The Galaxy Xcover 5 is a high-performance smartphone. You're not likely to experience any inconvenience in general use.
