The J5 2016 received in Romania a software update of about 280 MB yesterday. Security Pach 1 June 2018 now.
The J7 2016 is planned for Oreo 8.0.0 and the J5 2016 seems to be only 7.1.1
Galaxy j5 2016 is very week to catch the network range. It catches very week mobile networks. Please update this.
love the phone had since launch no major issues. The only problem I had with my handset was it didn't like any memory card and if i did put one in kept saying no storage card. But i have got used to it. Sound quality excellent as I wear hearing aids and i can use them with this hand set
Have owned since first launch. Andriod OS updated to 7.1.1 Still working ok with no problems. To date has been a very good, reliable phone.
OS always crashes and seeing a frequent optimization screen, disgusting. Does anyone has any better idea rather than factory reset ?

Not the pretiest, nor most powerfull, but extremely reliable. Almost two years without a singe glitch or freeze
Avoid this thing at all cost. I have this, I like this, but. I like the specs. As soon as you plug it in and install, so much BLOATWARE. Facebook app pre-installed, well, I don't have Whatspp. Skype and other Microsoft apps pre-installed - well I don't have Microsoft account/Skype account. Two browsers, Samsung and Chrome, two Emails Samsung and Gmail, two photo apps Gallery and Photos. For what? Taking too much of space these things. And these are not even all bloatware it has. Avoid this thing at all cost. I am going for Android One experience and I will never buy Samsung phone again. Never.
