Anonymous, 14 Jan 2017Just bought the on5 is it vr capableI have the Galaxy On5 as well. It's not VR capeable as I have tried it. However, you can still watch VR videos on YouTube. You just cant move around.
The galaxy on5 is crap. The camera stinks on the metropcs version, over half the advertised 8gb internal storage, on this one, is taken up by system memory, which you can't view or interact with. I have deleted, uninstalled, or turned off everything but essentials that I could and with 0 self-installed applications I still don't have room to install a system cleaner that's 400mb in size, so what exactly is that 4gb of system memory composed of? I hate hidden crap. Also, this my warranty replacement as every time I hit the up arrow to input a capital letter the keyboard frezes for up to 15 seconds them as often as not the keyboard simply disappears and I have to start over, it has done this as many as 4 times consecutively, the same issue I had with this phones predecessor. This phone is crap.
I despise this phone. I'm taking it back. No useful memory- camera totally stinks lag time bad to get the pic I want. I can't find enough bad words to describe this phone

This phone is pretty crappy. I have too many connection problems with my YouTube app. It's so needy for storage (8GB).
Pathetic phone, trade it in for something else.
i bought this phone online from the US on reaching 9ja to use it, i couldn't because i had to unlock it, i have gone to many phone shops and it cant be unlocked i am tired of the phone, my money has been wasted now.

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.
