I'm reviewing the phone for the last time and I'm gonna leave the forum too for random commenting and answering again and again for almost same kind of questions and queries. I'm using this phone alllmost two months now. One interesting thing I want to share, when I went the shop to buy this phone J5, I saw there in that small shop a crowd of people and two lines of buyers standing there to buy it. I've never seen such scenery before. People standing in lines to buy A phone and that shop's showcase was full with little orange boxess of J5. Most of the people were there to buy J5 and rest of them were for J7 and others. I'm pretty sure Samsung profits huge money to sell this budget smartphone in all over the world. Really it's hard to imagine how much J5 they've sold yet and still counting. The number is huge.
Whatever here's my final detail review of J5 and it's for last time. Please don't make any kind of reaction against it or conflicts. I'm revewing just my unit and just my own independent review. Not sure about others units, so there's no confusion exists. I'm revewing my phone, not your.
*Battery life is more than enough for me in a smartphone. 100 percent charge last one and a half day with heavy use like gaming, surfing with WiFi, watching video through headphone etc. Sometimes I listen song through external speaker, still it last for the hole day and some more. Battery is really powerful. Some tips to last battery for long, keep brightness low, use low size black or Gray theme, check background running apps, keep off WiFi, location if you don't need them.
1.5 gb powerful ram works great. It doesn't lag or hang like lots of other Android phones and 5.1 lollypop is good and stable and much more secure is. I'm happy with the ram give hassle free Android experience. There some cleaning apps in store to help keep ram and storage clean.
*Super amoled display is one of the finest features from a well-known reputed brand like Samsung giving us with such price. Colours are very sharp and vivid in it.
*I like the design and size of the phone but just only if they could cut little upper and lower part of it to make it more compact. Still I think 5" screen is the best for me.
*No light in home buttons. I'll never buy a phone without home button lights like this. Most of all I always feel I'm using a cheap phone, I don't deserve such feature. No idea is that a big deal to them, why they didn't give light in home buttons. It's so annoying in every way. It's my point of view, I can compromise some feature but not home button lights.
*Low internal memory is another downside of this phone, out of 8 gb only around 4 gb free to use. Lots of good useful app don't support external storage, so you've to remain alert always about storage, which is too low at 2015 and 5.1 Android and with a 1.5 gb ram phone.
*No gyroscope and compass sensors, may be I don't need much any of them, but there's no disagree with people who say you can buy a phone with these two sensors in J5 price range. So why I compromise them!
*Camera is not anywhere near the perfection of a true 13 mp. Image stability is most of the time is poor, sport mode is a joke, it's just useless. Rear camera is just awful for. I used Nokia N95 and Lumia 820 both had powerful Carl Zeiss lenses so I know how accurate and powerful a phone camera can be. J5 camera lense is way too weak and features too limited.

Shayan, 16 Dec 2015Can I play GTA game with no lags on j5 ??No chance man. Snapdragon 410, 1.2 ghz with adreno 306 along with 1.5 gb of ram could only mean one thing and that is casual gaming only and not heavy games. If you want to play high end games on a quality phone then I'd suggest you to up your budget by 1k and get the moto g turbo edition. Its a fantastic phone, performance wise and smooth gameplay.
