people, read reviews on popular sites, not on gsmarena because on gsmarena there are people who complain about phones and they don't own that phone.
check youtube reviews too. just ignore gsmarena comments.
rony , 10 Nov 2015To all the curious people who's looking to buy a phone, this phone is good but specifications... moreAnd for your curiosity, J5 run android 5.1.1 very smoothly along with it's processor :) Has 600-700mb free.
hAhA, 10 Nov 2015Is it A good phone or not should I buy it or not pleAse tell Me ??????It is a good phone for it's 200 euro price. Ignore the useless people who complain about everything and they don't even own the phone.
I bought mine last November 2, 2015 and so far, I am satisfied with this phone. I am more of a heavy "call-and-text" user with three socials apps that are always online via wifi connection (i.e., FB messenger, Viber and Whatsapp). With the power saving option activated, the battery lasts 72 hours before it goes down to 20% - this is based on my personal experience on the usage of this phone. Charging time takes 2 hours before reaching 100%. Sound quality is above average. Also, I accidentally dropped it (front side facing down) from my table and it fell 1 meter to a concrete floor but its still working without any technical issues [so far]. Thank God for tempered glass screen protector. :)
I haven't tried surfing on the net with it because I have a phablet for that purpose. I'm keeping my J5 for calls, sms and FB, Viber and Whatsapp only.
To those who are interested in getting this phone, just make sure you get the ORIGINAL Samsung Galaxy J5. There are many imitation units which come at a cheaper price but will offer you frustrations.
To all the curious people who's looking to buy a phone, this phone is good but specifications are not good enough with its price like horrid can quality, low processor, low built in memory, even 1.5 gb ram is not enough to run Android 5.1 smoothly. I'm pretty sure it's gonna lagging after times. Don't dance with Samsung paid agents or low brain dancers. There's much more better options are to buy a phone in j5 price range. Not all are cheater like samsung, 13 mp camera quality reminds me my years old Nokia n95 emo cam and I lough.
I write this again:
To all people which are interested in buying this phone or any other phone, you better don't consider the complains because there may be trolls. Just try the phone (any) and see if it meet your requirements and keep in mind the price of phone too. I repeat, any phone.
And if you are not satisfied with the phone you got, your experience may be improved alot by using Greenify app for example, removing bloatware and so on. Check xda forum.
Read reviews on internet, not stupid comments from kids or from people who wanna make a bad image about a phone.
My previous phone was an samsung too, i hate samsung for it's design, but I'm satisfied with this J5, and it look better than in pics on internet. I didn't encounter any problem which other people mentioned so far.
Leave these negative comments from all the phones on gsmarena and check reviews from internet, from popular sites or ask your friends which has the phone you want about their experience using it.
pari, 09 Nov 2015which is better j5 or mi4i?Mi4i is better for gaming
And has better camera quality
I choose J5 over mi4i
Coz J5 has better battery life
Plus micro sd card option
Anonymous, 10 Nov 2015Can anyone please tell me,,,,,, is there any hanging issue or lagging in performance? ???Don't instal too many apps or use up till internal 8gb storage
Buy a good micro sd card
Move apps to sd card, asking with pictures, downloads
Regularly use cleaning app like battery saver or clear cache
I don't have lagging issue
David Lucky, 10 Nov 2015Upgrading from moto e,
J5 is such a sexy thang
Was considering many options available in t... moreNice to see an honestly review. Most of ppl make complaints here, trolls. Complaints which other people doesn't have them, like me. My J5 reached 11 days of use and is good so far. Camera is ok for me, it depends of people too after all.
Comparing an 200 euros phone like J5 to Oppo Find 7 which is 300+ euros if I'm not wrong isn't ok at all.
Anyway, I'll like to see you here and answer to people who complain about everything lol. I'm doing this since i got the phone, i don't like the trolls.
Cheong, 10 Nov 2015J5 is better because it can last for more than a year!Hey guy you're just doing wrong. I went a local Samsung shop and I saw a big crowd there and most of them were there to claim there warranty. Lots of other small brands are there people using their phones years and years. Please don't miss guided people. I know you're paid agent of Samsung in internet impress people for but their phones but that doesn't mean you'll always put negative comments on other phones.
jhe, 09 Nov 2015Im planning to buy a phone j5 or oppo mirror 5?J5 has better screen resolution so pictures might look sharper
Oppo mirror 5 has larger memory ram n storage
Unless you plan to instal many apps without buying micro sd card, then go for oppo m5
I have oppo find 7, it's a great phone, don't mind getting another oppo
But J5 has removable battery and I got myself a good micro sd card 64gb for storage and apps
So I'm happy with M5
Upgrading from moto e,
J5 is such a sexy thang
Was considering many options available in the market today
I've had J5 for over two weeks now and am sure to have made the right choice.
Last battery charge was 32 hours ago, so this lasted for two 9am-5pm days, having WA, BBM, Line on, with occasional net browsing and email usage.
No lagging in multitasking, internet browsing is fast enough.
I also have oppo find 7
Should I compare this against J5 ?
How less superior is J5's camera quality, speaker, cpu, ram, screen, and so on...
Should I tell myself.. holy crap, J5 is not as good as people commented.
Well.. the truth is..
J5 is such a damn fine phone for its class type
Of course there are many other phones with much better specs.
It all comes down to what I expect from it.
I went through the specs and review - thanks to you all.. I was able to make my decision to get J5.
After comparing with Xiaomi mi4i, moto G 3rd Gen, other Xiaomis, oppos, Huawei, Lenovo, even Samsung's A5, HTC, and some other. Eventhough, I knew J5 doesn't have good camera. I didn't buy J5 based on the 13mp label.
Guys... I'm happy with J5 along with other J5 goers.
Eventhough, the camera quality is probably like a great 5mp camera instead.
Some people are saying the camera quality is great. Agreeable to some degree, when compared against my moto e 1st gen.
Those people probably upgraded from similar class phones.
If u want a damn good camera phone, go for something else rather.
U only get disappointed when u don't get what u expected .. so expect wisely.
U don't buy a Hyundai to expect a Mercedes feel.
Can anyone please tell me,,,, is there any hanging issues or lagging in performance? ???
wifi hotspot is not working with my lap.can anyone tell me solution pls.,.,.,
