natasha, 18 Nov 2015is samsung galaxy j5 assembled in china?It depends on which country you are in. Indian models ( J5 / J7 ) are made at the Samsung Factory In India.
ATTENTION J5 USERS IN INDIA :
NEW USERS : Please dont update to J500FXXU1AOJ1 which was released to the end of October. Per reports, it was a bad update. So turn off the automatic updates, right away you start using the phone. Its better if you don't turn on WIFI during the initial set up as the updates are set to automatic and the phone may download it by the time the set up is complete.
CURRENT USERS : Bombard Samsung with complaints and that will prompt them to release a fix. I had a similar experience with S4 Mini and Samsung released a fix in a months time.
Front camera has gesture shot. Battery is great with power saving mode. For better music quality, install 3rd party apps like equalizer+ coz only have google play music. Its good for games too. Good device. I like my j5 gold
I just purchased this set a month ago.
It's rear camera is not like 13MP compare to microsoft 640XL but front is awesome with FHD video recording.
No Heating problem. Good pixel resolution with 170 degree view.
Not much hanging problem.
Battery is really good, last long for 1.5 days (when using only data mode).
But problem occured in this mobile when i install a new update.
Its start heating or hanging.
Resolved problem for a while when I restart cell just.
But problem still carried.
