Samsung galaxy on5 (SM-G550FY) has official update to Marshmallow
This review is for the metroPCS Galaxy on5, which has cameras of 5MP/2MP, not 8MP/5MP. The good things about the phone are:
- Size. 5'' screen is not too big or too small
- Screen. Nice and bright and clear.
- Performance is generally sufficient for basic everyday use--call/text, email, web browsing, social media. Also able to listen to FM radio.
- Battery. With light basic everyday use, I get a solid 2 days before recharging.
- Price. Very cheap w/ metro promotional. If I had to buy a phone outright full price, probably would have gotten a G4 play which is the same size but better specs.
- The camera is pretty bad. Unless the lighting is very good, picture quality is lacking. There is also significant delay between pressing the button to take the photo, and when the photo actually takes.
- Memory. Only 8GB internal, more than half of which is already occupied with system and pre-loaded junk. Some can be removed/disabled, but you're still left with
kim , 09 Feb 2017Where do u get micro sim cardYou will need a nano sim for this phone. I haven't the faintest idea why it says micro sim on the phone. My micro sim is too big. The SIM card you use now can be cut down to use in this phone. You can get it cut at Walmart or any mobile phone retailer. I think Best Buy might do that as well.
wow, 15 Jan 2017the phone is fine just put in a micro sd card and you could get 200 gb worth of storage Where do u get micro sim card
The galAxy on5 is a great phone. The only down side is the storage capacity which is only 8gb but u can also add a micro sd card which gives u extra memory for pretty much everything except apps. Songs, videos and stuff like that can be downloaded into sd card. The screen resolution is great for movies and shows. Screen is fairly large as well making the phone great for tv entertainment. Compared to my iPhone 5 that I was using for some time. But I have to say I like the galaxy on5 much better. And I was never an android person. But the phone also feels great in your hand and not for not for nothing but it's a damn sexy looking phone. Highly recommend this but especiAlly for what you get for your money. Defidently the best low end smartphone money can buy. Usually around 125$ so worth it. As much as ppl say it's a basic phone it's really not. I can do just as much maybe even more on the galaxy on then I could've done when I was using my iPhone 5
Iam using samsung galaxyon5 around 2 months iam facing restart problem any one know how to solve this problem please reply....
the safety feature on this phone sssssssuuuuuuuuucccccccckkkkkkkksssss !!!!!!

I really don't even know wha... moreHotspot refers to using your mobile device as a modem ot acts like a wifi device allowing you to use it to connect a lapto0,tablet or other devices to your mobile carriers mobile data, so say you are out instead needing to find a coffee shop with free open wifi, you can pull out your cell turn on the hotspot, set it up with connecting your laptop or tablet and use to get online at a park, or on the train or bus, or anywhere you have mobile service without wires

Had to get this phone as a last min thing. I ask for the phone in white, but the store didnt carried it. When I got home and was set up the phone. I realize the the camera quality was really bad on both cameras. The storage sucks also. Dont get this phone unless you need to!! Cant wait to get a new phone soon!!!

I just bought this phone and I discovered it has no Radio, some of us like to use it, it's annoying not having a radio to listen to and having to download a radio app from the google app store radio is free I don't want to download and buy a radio app from them to have music and there is no mp3 or mp4 player on here I have 1007, songs I changed from my samsung galaxy s4 mini cellphone and I had all those songs on there I changed to my new cellphone recently and I only have 665 songs, that sucks. You also have to download from google app store a good message app, because this phone comes with the ugly boring and very dull message app. Don't buy this phone, I'm going to take mine back to the store I got it from and buy me a real cellphone that meets my standards of a great cellphone for me.
