The phone is good, not that durable, needs good case. I do not have many applications, so 8GB is fine for me. Overall, the Samsung Galaxy On5 is the best fit for me.

This phone is horrible because you don't have room for apps because it's always running out of storage. I repeatedly have to uninstall Messenger to make room for updates then reinstall Messenger. It will let me change Facebook & Messenger to external storage but it doesn't help much. I have found all the places to change it to SD card storage but hardly anything goes into the SD card.

Recommendation DON'T BUY THIS PHONE.
Anonymous, 25 Jan 2017Had to get this phone as a last min thing. I ask for the phone in white, but the store didnt c... moreI absolutely agree. Like 1,000,000% camera quality is awful. It makes everything look darker than what it seems. I always have to delete stuff off this phone to add other apps to it. People should not buy this phone, unless you only use phones to call, and doesn't download stuff and take pictures.
Basically it is a piece of problematic junk. With tech support answer to everything is "Factory Reset". Which 98% does not solve issue but loss of data.
And no third party apps by the way. So cant blame those.
No downloaded apps besides stuff that came with phone. And its the same issue with each Samsung prodyluct, each time with promise "Oh this one is better and no issues" three times wasted money on Samsung products but no more.
Volume randomly go all over the place with headphones plugged in. Sometimes just randomly go low and then spam the ringtone volume bar. Other times it go full blast. The headphones? Ah, first thought, but all range os set of headphones same issue. But same headphones have no such issue on non samsung products.
Freeze ups galore, dropped calls, mobile netaork and wifi randomly cutting on and off. Each update make the phone go nuts unusuable until yet another factory reset (the only issue factory reset fix...until the next update).
Slow chaging battey. Oh yeah batteries get slow but after three months? With stock charger? Then sometimes the phones does not charge at all. Tech support solution? Yup ya guessed it. Factory reset and not once solved the issue. Yet same charger charges other phones up some much older with much older batteries with no issues and swiftly.
Then call quality sucks. Even traded with another that had LG and same carrier as me, no issue and can actually hear phone convo clearly. And this is for all three samsung phones owned.
And the list goes on. Do not buy. And Samsung is not going to fool me again. Once, ok. Twice, probably shouldnt happen twice. Three times, I would be a fool to do it again. They seem to have no interest in improving their products and probably still will make money off of selling junk, but it will not be any of mine ever again.

I had a galaxy grand prime for a long time... and thought I would be getting a slight upgrade with the On5... boy was I wrong. The specs are better on the On5... so I assumed it was a logical choice.
Both phones are from Tmobile... and come bundled with the same bloatware software... but the On5 no longer allows you to uninstall these bloatware apps completely the way you could with the Grand Prime.
The phone is garbage... slow... laggy right out of box... and u have a very small amount of storage space to work with.
Keyboard lags during fast input... applications with fps run at a fraction of the speed of the grand prime.
The Grand Prime weighs more... and thats probably because it is using real working technology instead of plastic economy garbage inside of the On5

i bought galaxy on5
and 64 gb sd card
but storage space is very low
cant move app in sd card ...
I have 2 ON 5's - Work pretty well - I began getting notices that I am running out of RAM -
I deleted some of the apps and that went away - I understand 16gb is more usable - I have a SIM card that holds data & pics so that's good - A directional app for a compass will not work with this phone - The Bluetooth has become a question, in my car it cuts in and out recently, it worked initially and then this started, I don't know if it is the Acura or the phone - My wife's Azera had a similar problem but it's pretty steady now - I am considering upgrading to Samsung's J3 Emerge
