received the On5 when the company I worked for switched carriers...1 big piece of dudu... this phone drops calls, sends calls directly to voice mail, doesn't consistently ring, no activity indicator (blinking lite), it will drop call if you unplug from charger while phone is ringing, incoming calls take precedent over any activity that you have open (and will not save a file as a draft), was told I cannot use wifi and get consistent service, in the 4th largest city (Houston) I had to switch to 2G Service, I was also informed that I may have to turn phone on/off to pick up a new tower (again within the city of Houston)...cannot save pictures to gallery because of lack of memory...JUNK!!!
this model (galaxy on5 from t-mobile) is easy to unlock by root way? thanks in advance

Pic quality good not "Superior"..but fine for everyday use. Nice screen size and has SD card slot for adding storage. Removable battery is nice feature so you can just swap a charged battery just like that. No looking for a McDonald's or somewhere to hurry up and plug your phone to charge.
Not so long ago this On5 phone would have sold for around the same price and Apples' iPhone and Samsung Galaxy flagship S7.
If you can get one for 25 bucks it's worth it. It's good for a second phone and in an emergency if your main one breaks or you need one in a flash. Or if you're in a situation where you need a phone but don't wanna risk losing or breaking your new Galaxy...like White water rafting. ..lol...or mountain climbing.
Sad Samsung user, 28 Dec 2016During X’mas time, I bought Samsung phone, fridge and gas range. Within two weeks, I noticed ... moreTMobile has these in excess from a 2015 promotion and shove them down your throat, they are absolute junk Typical of TMobiles poor service and "sell sell sell" mentality. Steer clear of this phone AND TMobile unless you want them to own you for the rest of your life.

And I got this phone free when switching carrier to Metro PCS.

Samsung Galaxy on5 mobile is good phone but in this mobile Internet speed very bad.......
The latest update unnecessarily includes Facebook bloatware & it consumes total of 550mb of internal memory! Ridiculous it cant be uninstalled.

Google user, 23 Dec 2016Specs states that there is a FM radio. That is not true with T-Mobile US That's what I found out too
During X’mas time, I bought Samsung phone, fridge and gas range. Within two weeks, I noticed the Samsung cell phone small hollow on battery cover for opening had two cracks. I contacted T-mobile where I bought and they did not cover cosmetic warranty and I had to contact Samsung.
When I contacted Samsung customer support, I explained the cracked issue due to the thin cover design and a battery cover replacement. The representative asked the phone IMEI number and after a minute, he told me the phone warranty is voided due to the crack. The phone function normally without any drop, the only problem is caused by the cracks on small hollow for back cover opening.
OK, fine. I made a return on all Samsung products I bought and never be their customer again even I will buy a 4K TV next month.
