Anonymous, 10 Jan 2019No A5 was spotted in a test for Pie ! I already bought the A8 2018 yesterday evening from Orange Romania and I quit the A5 2017 so I wish you a great success I hope you get 9.0 Pie. I until April I have 9.0 Pie on the A8 2018! The phone is brilliant and display is brilliantly close to S8
I have searched the majority of the sites informing about the Android update to Pie 9.0 for Samsung smartphones and non of them seems to include the model J5 2017. On the contrary Samsung members app include the above model! Don't know what to believe...

Chris22, 02 Jan 2019It's not true J5 2017 is on the list of updates on the Samsung Members official page in Romani... moreHaha, it's really true. I had a notification on Samsung members app informing us about the aproximate date of the update to Android Pie 9.0 on Samsung Galaxy J5 2017 (August 2019). Seems unbelievable that more expensive models are stuck in the previous version of Android. Let me ask you something people! Should we proceed to a factory reset after the update ot there's no need to?
Yolo, 02 Jan 2019Only J7 2017 will get an update to Android Pie 9.0. Unfortunately J5 2017 (16GB) will stick to... moreIt's not true J5 2017 is on the list of updates on the Samsung Members official page in Romania for 9.0 Pie in August 2019! It's really true who has the J5 2017 to have Android Pie 9.0 with One UI.The A5 2017 seems to be stuck on Android Oreo 8.0.0
Chris22, 28 Dec 2018J7 2017 J5 2017 and J3 2017 get Android Pie 9.0Only J7 2017 will get an update to Android Pie 9.0. Unfortunately J5 2017 (16GB) will stick to the worst Android of all time, Android 8.1.
It looks to be a great phone and has all the features I want -- except for one! It doesn't have the frequencies used to pump out the 3G and 4G signals in rural Australia; particularly in my area. I have three towers in close proximity to my residence, yet I can't get any signal. Anyone would think I live in a Faraday cage.
I really thought we had gone past the old 'stand on one leg on the roof of your home with one arm raised and wearing an Alfoil signal attractor on your head'.
I think I'll go back to my old flip-phone. It may not be smart but at least I can use it to make calls. The J5 Pro I have recently purchased does everything BUT make phone calls.
Hi guys, friend of mine updated to Oreo and she is complaining that her dual SIM contact-list setup got broken, contacts lost the relationship to names, only shows numbers on one SIM, for the other SIM sometimes incoming number and name don't correspond with reality. Similar issue anyone? Fix recommended please? Thank you in advance

And after dropping it every 10 seconds it didn't even have a scratch on the screen. But after it fell outside on road from around 1.5 meter the diplay wwnt nuts. The screen didn't break but the display kinda died so I had it changed and now it works perfectly. Hope this helps you 😁
I hope this phone doesn't freezes over time.
I was using itel it1508 and it freezes a lot which is so annoying, I just got this phone on Monday. Hope I will not face difficulties

I use a silicone housing, because the aluminium body is slippery. This is main disadvantage of the phone. But overall I am satisfied.

Great phone for simple usage (spotify/web/messages/calling)
battery lasts up to 3 days
