I got this phone a week back, luckily i chose the white one which is the only one still available on fk. About the phone, the display is where the phone rocks, super amoled is very crisp and fhd videos appear very crisp and vivid. fhd videos play without any lag or hiccups. Though the ram is 1.5 on paper, user available is only 1.2 or so, of which 650 is occupied by android and inbuilt apps. Phone shows lags while playing high end games, while temple run and subway surfer plays like a breeze. Touch is buttery smooth, thanks to touchwiz 5.0. So if you an avid gamer this device is a strict no-no. It will lag for sure. The phone comes with 2600 mah battery, i guess the snapdragon 410 for this device is a perfect incorporation for j5 battery. It surely last for a day with heavy usage, and the best part is that the phone wont heat at all on wifi connection or playing games. A Power saving mode and an ultra power saving mode is included in the phone which is a welcome addition. Aesthetics of phone is similar to same monotonous galaxy design. It is not my cup of tea though this design might appeal to some. strictly a personal choice. Built quality is good, not great. J5 has compromised on the back cover, the cover is very fragile and will break if you play with it :D . Camera dept though boast of a 13 mp rear cam, i didn't find it great. Pictures appear very dull indoors, though the pics taken outdoors are good, but didn't comes upto a 13mp mark. cam options are very limited and basic in this phone. Zoom as usual is 4.0 x, zoomed images are very grainy. Front cam of the device is where it really shines. For selfie lovers J5 has 5mp cam with an led flash too. selfies comes great with the front cam and you don't have to worry about low light. One thing which i miss in this device is the light sensor, which are now most common in medium range phones. Another is the lack of led notification light. Both of these things should be there. Call quality is excellent and without any problems. Storage is a little less, end user gets only 3.5-4.0gb or so. It won't be a problem since you can transfer apps to sd card. In short, if your expectations are sensible for 12k , i think j5 wont disappoint you. For 12k a lot of phones with great specs are in the market, j5 offers a good user experience with latest android and battery life.
