Nice phone for the price have it for a month now, not experiencing hang or lags, i surf web a lot and use apps, but games not much. Camera is average not that sharp but its ok, os is smooth, i always have around 500 mb free ram thanks to 1.5gb of ram. The screen is excellent, thanks to superamoled. But its quiet large, since i came from a 4'inch phone hope will get use to it sometime. Battery i got around 12 hrs of heavy use.
The fact that it has just Google Play Music instead of Google Play Music and Samsung's Music app is a good thing. Less bloatware!
No Gorilla Glass? it is not necessary! whatch this video "Samsung Galaxy J5 - Knife Scratch Test!"
From spec looks like upgraded grand prime.
But this one looks more bulky. I prefer the slimmer grand prime.
Big Daddy, 14 Sep 2015Moto G is certainly A better choice.. No doubt..but i believe Samsung have better camera quality
Is there a dual SIM version in Europe? All I see in Germany is single SIM version or sellers don't know what they sell.
O, 14 Sep 2015They should put the camera in top left corner.That camera position scientifically do not affect your photo taking skills. Though it have been proven that top left corner for camera position is only good for landscape mode due to hands position but fails greatly in portrait mode due to the tilting angle.
Will there be a full review? Please do post a full review GSMArena.

omid46, 14 Sep 2015Dearest friends.According to the specifications written here in gsmArena,J5 is a good midrange... moreJ5 is already available in some Asian countries for US$200-215 (SIM free/unlocked version)
Well I have in home Galaxy Prime that Orange give me for free when I get new contract... and to be honest When I see pricing of both phones I have no idea how someone would buy this one... for 0.5 more RAM and higher screen res(that actually because of quality sometimes you cant see the difference)?
Grand Prime even after latest LP update work good, its typical Facebook phone for teens so I thing they always gonna choose phone that cost less... unless operators gonna give them for free like I get it...
No gorilla glass...is the biggest let down..1 drop and don't even bother changing the screen it more expensive because it's a super AMOLED screen
1.5 GB is a biggest let down from this phone. Samsung have a tradition of bad ram management, this phone can barely multitasking.
Dearest friends.According to the specifications written here in gsmArena,J5 is a good midrange classes of Samsung products,but not in upper midrange categories,with ORG!!As usual SSamsung is ascending in A series incredibly with very higher prices!!J5 price hasn't mentioned but it must be affordable due to its specifications!!!Also we must wait for highly expertly scientific writing review of gsmArena to have better understanding scientifically!!!Thanks all of you,GSM,Google plus and Samsung to make better products!!Please test any devices before purchasing!Good luck.
