Anonymous, 01 Dec 2016Marshmallow update makes my phone slow Cant Agree More. Its Like the Marshmallow wasnt meant for the 8Gb internal Mem Version. Very Heavy apps. Phone keeps on saying running low on storage space yet i only have 1 and half page of apps
Mark, 30 Nov 2016where do you put the 2 second sim cardOne under the SD card slot and the other beside that to the left. Should have SM1 and Sim2 written on the casing under the battery and in front of the slots
I have the Thai version, 2nd sim now does not work due to 2G no longer available in Australia. does the Aus version have the same problem

Anonymous, 28 Nov 2016Is the camera on j5 is better than iphone5c??No Man. But Iphone camera better than SLR... But Samsung camera is better than Mark series. Or get a nokia 3310..its camera is the best,..
I am using Samsung Galaxy J5 SM-J500H/DS. Unfortunately I am not able to send or receive text messages.What could be the reason. Do we have to make any changes to the settings.
Can the SD card be formatted as internal stowage rather than portable storage ?
It is a good phone. I use it for 1years no hangs and no problem . I dropped it more times there is not a small stretch .It was agreat phone I love it
Really simple phone. If you compare it to other prices , it's a steal. I would rather recommend it for teens or younger users as it's features are more suitable for that age group. Great for selfies etc...
It has basically got all the features of a normal smart phone.
-not complicated to use
-low battery life ( depending on usage )
- I literally like drop my j5 once a day and not a single mark/scratch appears. (When you drop it, it only makes it stronger)
-tends to overheat when overused which becomes a burden. (Probs because I spend most of my time streaming series)
- memory card is recommended
-takes quite long to charge (at times)
(I wouldn't really recommend it as a business practical phone rather for social/entertainment use)
Anonymous, 28 Nov 2016I am using this phone for almost a year now and it is still working properly.. im not having a... morebro mine also working properly from nov. 2015 even after updating to 6.0.1 and other xtra updates after 6.0.1
PEOPLE WHO R COMMENTING FAKE GOD WILL NEVER FORGIVE U
its a very gud phone without any problem and no other company can beat SAMSUNG
MUST BUY IT
it has only 1.5gb ram,
so once you update to marshmallow its keeps running out of ram memory because of background processes, so i disabled all the phone features like chrome browser as we have standard browser in it, google mail by email, office apps, some of google apps!
so whenever i start to play some game like angry bird epic, i free my ram from start manager which is a preinstalled Samsung app and put my cell phone on battery saver mode so it prevent running background processes!
Always free your RAM whenever you start to play games or working apps that's what the cell slows
and marshmallow is only good for new look and battery!
and there are some tiny features too which i don't know but battery timing is twice than the lollipop j5
