AnonD-581344, 06 Sep 2016This turned out to be a cut down version of other Galaxy phones. You just "can't do" a number... morebought mine from metro as well...its simply a filed down version of a galaxy grand prime..but in comparison metro seems to be pretty much aimed at grade school kids..everything is so utterly hokey with them. This phone is not the same as the demo in the store. I still have yet to find the button that brings up the video camera that supposedly records hd video..i pulled it out of my pocket once and it was on (an issue that i was able to prevent with a setting on my GS2 & galaxy grand prime)so i know the video cam is there..but strangely not on the camera app...also...my first month with metro was smooth and peaceful..but immediately after i paid my second payment the metro pcs app overrides my home page settings and also keeps sending people on my contacts list texts and advertisements using my name to advertise some feature or whatever that i didnt voluntarily use. I suggest if one wants to buy an ON5 they should find one online if the specs and features that samsung lists are of any importance to you..cuz the metro version is NOT even close..by the way..i put my screen against a resolution informer..the max on this metro version was in the range of 480p and never above..so if you dont mind being lied to go buy this hollow turd from metro..you wont be glad you did...deficiencies for the masses...all hail sub par hype and inferior merchandise! bleph!!✘

i just bought my first 'smart' phone for the purpose of having a camera and it SUCKS. at the metropcs store they said it was great but wouldn't let me play with it. I am so bummed. it does a bunch of weird stuff like call people and start playing pandora when i'm not even touching it. DON"T BUY IT
What a piece of junk...
I don't have particularly exacting standards for a phone. I do most of my mobile work on a tablet, so the phone really just needs to work for tethering, making calls, and having dome decent functionality on its own. Unfortunately, the On5 fails completely.
8Gb internal memory is pretty poor as it is, but for some insane reason, not only have Samsung decided to disable SD card adoption, they've also ensured the process of moving apps to the SD card - the handul of apps that *can* be moved, that is - is painfully slow and cumbersome. Combine this with the massive bloatware that comes as standard, and this is a phone I can't wait to get rid of.
AnonD-515996, 10 Sep 2016its a single sim phone not dual sim ...Was web searching for specs, and saw all these references to dual-SIM (even a YouTube vid about using the SIM Manager), and couldn't find any site that talked about different sub-models. Some show a SIM2 slot to the left of the SIM1/microSD slots.
Oh well, was just looking for confirmation of 2 sub-models...
AnonD-578219, 30 Aug 2016Does anyone get the official marshmallow update (OTA)?? I got an automatic OTA update to Marshmallow (6.0.1) about 2 hours after I bought/activated the phone in the MetroPCS store. I'm just wondering why it isn't dual-SIM...
[deleted post]remove ur battery and undernith that there will a barcode sticker in that u vill find ur serial no. of ur device
The On5 that I got from MetroPCS does not have a second SIM slot. Single SIM only.
Do not know why.
is there any chance after security patch to receive marshmallow update in our device

You can totally change the background on the lock screen. There is an airplane mode ( open the drop down menu and scroll to the right ) and as for the computer connectivity, I have Windows and it works fine without the utility
hello i got this phone yesterday but i am facing problem in camera as the camera is very blur, any one have this type problem or not and what is the solution for it.
This turned out to be a cut down version of other Galaxy phones. You just "can't do" a number of the normal things without rooting the phone. And because of the cut down, it's a little clunky to do the rest of the stuff.
e.g. Like most Androids, I would expect to be able to attach it to my mac as a disk drive and just go to town. Nope. Gotta use the Samsung utility.
I would expect to be able to set my lock screen picture. Nope. Gotta use one of their themes. [Boy do those suck.]
The built-in text messaging app has a horrible keyboard, with no quick substitutes.
There is NO airplane mode app/widget. For a traveler, that sucks.
Even the clock / weather app is a one-off. I want to set an alarm and turn it on/off without creating it each week.
