Im so excited thinking I can update my phone to MM like other people in othee country.. i just uodated it awhile ago. And it dissapoints me. Hehe
Ive been using the J5 for over a year now and honestly it doesn't disappoint. Except for the storage space!
all the extra app and phone cababilitites are awesome but one would atleast think the phone would have bigger storage space judging by all the extras!!
After using it for almost 1.5 years, here's my overall evaluation about this smartphone:
The operating system is still running smoothly(doing maintinance every month is really helpful)
The Battery is still the same. I've never encountered amy problem about it except it takes 3 hours to charge which is normal on this phone.
I think the camera can still compete with other 13 mp smartphone nowadays.
I really loved this handset. But I don't recommend anyone on buying it as of now (2017) because the smartphone market has a lot to offer to you which is better than
this smartphone. But still, this is a solid phone on my own personal experience

Anonymous, 03 Aug 2017I m too disapponited with camera.. also with storage. I cant download applications more thn 3 ... moreyes, the camera is very disappointing except if under sunlight. otherwise, the quality is very poor. the storage is very low. 8gb is not enough at all! at least 16gb.
Worst phone ever.... in smartphone...
1. No updates
2. No internal memory
3. No transfer of apps to external memory
4. Always out of memory
Thank God.. . They stop manufacturing of this gattiya idiot phone... or else company would have been close by now...
Great phone though BUT, internal memory too small..and the silver lining at the edge FADES so quickly loosing it's beauty..i feel strongly using silver lining is a very bad material should be changed
I m too disapponited with camera.. also with storage. I cant download applications more thn 3 also with external storage beacause it doesn't support external storage succesfully..otherwise in terms of hardware strongness it is quite good
I have this phone, it is very cheap quality, and doesn't have basic feature like auto brightness. Way too much expesive it should not be more than 10,000. Qmobile Z10 is better than this J5.
Dnt go on brand name.galaxy j5 is nt worth spending.the problem is with its internal memory which doesnt allow u to download apps more than 2 or 3 which ends u up in frustration. If u want to download the 4th app then just delete ur first apps. Doesnt work with an additional memory card. Rest all othr specifications r good.
AnonD-682890, 07 Jul 2017Should I get this phone, the Idol 4 or Huawei P9 Lite?P9 lite for sure
Superb phone i love this phone no any problem but have storage problem
For its higher class than j1, j2 and j3, j5's spec is too low. Though stable, ppl will get a better deal. It's camera isn't much better than j1 mini. Still same weak compression problem in indoor photo as seen in j1 mini. Same 8GB internal as j1 mini sounds like a joke
