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

Anonymous, 26 Nov 2016Iam using samsung galaxy j5 model j500H .But it has no 4g..but some j5 has 4g why?J500-H DS model is only 3g.You became a fool.
Unorthodox , 26 Nov 2016Why?lots of problems,hanging,play store not open,wifi problem and many more
MS, 27 Nov 2016J500H does not support 4G.only 3G is available.sm-j500F support 4g may u should go for that
Just bought the j52016 16gig dual sim its fast and works well but 8 gog is taked by just a few apps. I can see probs if you have an 8 gig version. My batt life was 8 pc lost in 8 hours and it charges in about 2 hours and is much faster that i thought. I cant see where the complaints come from on here other than they have 8 gig versions.
