I got the "J500H" version of J5 from the philippines and here's my honest review. The battery is good and long lasting (It depends on your usage). The camera quality is good but not the best.The Auto Focus is not good.The System is running flawlesly. It's so Excellent on Multitasking. It doesnt Lag,Hang and No Heating issue. Finally,the phone is not good for heavy gaming...No notification Light. No NFC.... Overall Im Satisfied

Am a camera enthusiast and the camera on j5 is ok. It takes better picture as compared to other budget phones. And as for a5, its costlier with more or less the same processor.

Only in low light shooting m4 aqua seems to win.
Camera focus and shutter speed is amazing.
