Did you reset the device or at least a cache wipe after the update..? Some times this helps in ironing out the issues. Those people who have issues can give it a try now, even if they didn't do that at the time of update.
Anonymous, 18 Nov 2015last update sucks the phone it starts hanging and laging what to do ? is any another update c... moreI am also having the same problem with my j5.....
App lock and auto call recorder are also not working after updation.... and device options are also wiped off.
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.
