I got the phone in India after waiting for almost a month from the time i pre-ordered it. I liked the gold colour and i had to wait longer than the people who ordered the other colour. Flipkart did a good job of giving a discount of Rs 500/- (~8 USD) as a token of gratitude towards the long wait.
Why Samsung J5?
It's one of the value for money product from samsung.
It comes with latest android build out of the box.
4G LTE connectivity.
AMOLED screen which is superior to LED screens in all aspects and also power efficient.
Good battery backup.
Good selfie camera with flash.
Compact size(it's of perfect size to handle it in one hand or put in the trouser pockets).
Lag free UI (have to use it for months together to see if it becomes slower as my Galaxy S1 did).
comes with a hands free for this cost (though i have not used it yet to comment on its quality).
Gold colour looks good.
What's not so good?
The 13 MP camera is not that great (compared to the sony sensor that i have on my mi3)
couple of sensors missing (may be a cost cutting measure?)
There are few default apps like games which cannot be uninstalled.
Boring old Samsung design.
sound volume is average (typical samsung)
Verdict: The other worthy alternatives would be Moto G3 or Mi4i which costs Rs 1000/- more(~15 USD). But if you want a better screen which is what we look at during most of the time when we use the phone go for Galaxy J5 without a second thought.

For Whom who can't afford to buy Samsung J5 a better option could be "Redmi 2 prime" 16gb / 2gb ram.
compensate would be 4.7inch screen and 2mp front vga camera. Else entire hardware config is the same + Redmi 2 prime has more sensors. just 6999/- can save Rs 5000/-
