Samsung Galaxy On5

 

The 5-inch Samsung Galaxy On5 is a relatively compact MetroPCS phone that gets you solid overall performance at an affordable price.

Affordable. Compact and sturdy build. Bright 720p display. Good battery life. Expandable storage and removable battery.

Subpar camera. Limited internal storage. Some sluggishness.

If your hand just can't handle big phones, the Samsung Galaxy On5 is a relatively compact and affordable MetroPCS phone that gives you solid overall performance without breaking the bank. For $129 it performs better than the more expensive HTC Desire...

Samsung Galaxy On5 Review: Read our full review of the Samsung Galaxy On5.

Good battery life ; Removable battery ; MicroSD expandable up to 128 GB

Weak GPU ; Low internal storage ; No notification LED ; No backlit touch keys

The performance of the device was smooth only on normal use, it struggles on heavy tasks and gaming. The back camera quality is decent for the price. Considering the brand name and after sales support, it’s a good buy for noob people who don’t want to...

Samsung Galaxy On5 and Galaxy On7 First Impressions

 

Consumer review by: kc2fya (phonescoop.com)

Metro PCS Variant pretty good.

 

I have the On5 for three months now and I have to say that it is a very good budget phone. 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...

Excellent phone

 

First off the phone is 5.6" not 6". The battery life is the best of any phone I have ever had, I got over 7 hours of screen on time surfing,gaming and just about everything else. It bests the sony xperia z3 compact I had, it also lasts way longer than...
