today 12feb2017, I just upgraded my j5 to Android marsmellow.... everyting looks so great!!! You should upgrade yours
I request all who are updating their phone,, not to do anything while updating.. make sure your phone is fully charged and you have continuous data service available without any break.. Even a fraction of a break can cause malfunction of update.. Just leave the pone as it is till it reboots automatically.. you will never have any problem with updates.
Now coming to J5 Recent update,, It has made my phone much smoother and i understand that it takes care of some security issue.. happy updating
This update is works perfectly, no issues at all, but the only problem is the poor internal storage, only 1gb free in Indonesia version SM-J500G/DS

I updated my Galaxy J5 on 3 December 2016 to the new Marshmallow software, I deleted a lot of apps and had 100mb's more than required. Download the new upgrade, installed it. It updated, restarted and for more than an hour stuck on the Samsung logo. I eventually had to pay money to have the old Lollipop software, only for it to work but not save anything. I cant save camera pictures, The phone cant pick up my SD card (which works in my older phone, I first thought it a faulty sd card) but the worst I cant go on internet. with mobile data and WiFi. Nothing.
I DO NOT recommend the new update, I don't think this version of software was fully tested, maybe my phone was not meant to have it. I was happy with the Lollipop software, now, I'm sitting with regret and less money in my wallet, for a phone that does not work.
Guys help me i juss updated mine because it requested for an update but now cant switch on. How do i go about it?
mykie, 20 Nov 2016after the update my phone doesn't wanna switch on again whats up? Hey mykie.
Am having the same problem on my J5 cant switch on after updating. How did you tuckle this problem on your phone?
The update seems to have slowed the phone down. I know what i went thru deleting files and applications in order to create space for this update to be able to run, had i known i would have just stuck with my Lollipop which was doing pretty gr8 at the time.
