I just bought E5 yesterday and here are my initial impressions:
Note:My new model came with Lollipop 5.1.1 pre-installed out of the box so big thanks to Samsung for that as I had read about a lot of old users facing issues after manually updating to Lollipop.
Pros:1.Decent display(not perfect or look like 1080p as some people seem to think so).It is a good display as far as 720p screens go.
2.Gorilla Glass 4 is certainly a value addition as I got the phone on a discount - 12000 Indian Rupees.
3.The new touchwiz used here feels much more refined and has more usabilities than the old one by far.
4.Although performance was average on gaming and nothing big ,I found no lags or stutters on day-to-day useage and the phone performs efficiently on light to moderate multitasking.
1.With Lollipop the amount of RAM the system uses is quite high as it is about 900MB.So the user will only get about 600 MB free Ram.
2.You can play most light games but do not expect this to run heavy games like GTA as it did lag.
My verdict:Overall still a good phone for the price it is available in the market now.
i ve idea 2 buy this mobile. but it has non removable battery. say some details about battery life. and if battery is not working means, we can replace battery or not?
My Galaxy E5 is on 5.1 lollipop and just came new small update (bugfix and new features) and it release ram from usually 980mb used all time to 800 and they return outdoor mode feature i didnt noticed more changes.
Finally rooted my E500H on 5.1.1 and installed a custom recovery TWRP using kingroot. No issues so far
