kc2fya's review of the Samsung Galaxy On5

original version, submitted Aug 8, 2016, 5:04 PM:

Metro PCS Variant pretty good.

I have the On5 for a month now and I have to say that it is a very good budget phone. I went with Metro PCS on a switch deal and got the On5 for FREE! The audio in the earpiece and the speakerphone is superb. I like the "extra volume" feature especially in outdoor settings. I like that it comes out of the box with Android Marshmallow 6.0.1 installed. The HD display is pretty good for a TFT display. The responsiveness of the touch screen is laggy sometimes. But it is not an AMOLED display, so it is good enough. The battery lasts longer than I expected. I still have about 80% at days end with light to moderate usage. The phone did freeze on me once so far, I will continue to monitor. The headphone audio with the supplied music effects is nice sounding with my music or on I-Heart. The camera is a bit better than previous phones with a 5 MP Main and 2 MP front selfie, I need to play with the camera some more. Overall, I am pleased with the phone. I elected to get a screen protector and a hard case which I recommend since the On5 does not have Gorilla Glass. There is no notification LED, but there is a camera flash and vibrate feature for notifications. Signal on the T-Mobile network in the Plainfield, NJ area is very good, I receive full strength in most areas. I hope this helps you out if you are considering this phone.
