Really good phone for a good price that you won't find anywhere else! I looked at the price in different stores and none were as cheap.

If you don't need a sim select the phone press f5 and quickly scroll down to use existing sim box that will appear.For some reason Vodafone has hidden it at the moment.

Wow you have to be quick ( would add its on the next page once you click pick phone). I have the A5 and they are basically the same phone. the A5 has 2gb ram over 1.5gb for the j5. i will be buying this for a relative asap.

I chatted online and it's £19.99 to unlock

Have u checked eBay? Usually much cheaper e.g only £2 to unlock the ultra 6

As you have the A5 are you running any apps off an sd card? as with other devices I've used I found moving apps to sd card was a bit flaky, assuming they can be moved in the first place. Slightly more important with the J5 as it only has 8GB to start with.

I'm on Tesco sim so no upgrade so got it from argos. 2 year warentee and yes paid more but wanted the 2 years . Vodafone only offered 1 year. good price if it suits you.

​I was a bit concerned by low 8gb, but using 32gb sd card and disabling bloat ware still got 57% memory free on phone even after reinstalling everything from s3

I got my J5 unlocked earlier this week from these guy - lesss than 24 hours

ebay.co.uk/itm…185

why this instead of smart ultra? Same price better specs.

Vodafone smart ultra 6 is far better. Assuming you don't mind the size of the phone

No problem at all. It appears the A5 has installed some there all by itself, or at least i don't remember telling apps specifically where to install.

which is better - the samsung galaxy j5 or the vodafone smart ultra 6? both at 99 pounds.

do not purchase from Vodafone worst customer service ever. I ordered this phone from them 2 weeks ago on Wednesday and was told multiple times I would recieve it on Saturday then Sunday then when I rang in on monday I was told my order didn't go through.

I reordered this the same day and for 2 days they couldn't find my order even though the order appeared as a pending transaction both times.
I cancelled best thing I ever did.

I then ordered from cpw this Wednesday around 5 30pm and there was a payment issue as my bank refused the funds they took the payment instantly and it went through as it was Easter I was supposed to recieve my phone tomorrow but received it on Saturday even during the holidays and the phone is unlocked and 5.25 too cashback.

I am posting from my j5 right now.

Vodafone want 19.99 to unlock your phone aswell.

it cost me 119.99 and a 10 pound virgin too up last time I checked handset had gone back up to 124.99 well worth the price.

I started reading this thread thinking "could it be true? - a 5" mobile phone deal posted without someone mentioning the much larger SU6??" Then I read this...

Edited by: "horsepills" 28th Mar 2016

carrys better brand name
more updates
too big of a screen

that's the three main reasons

also to unlock this phone on eBay it's over 10 pounds

If you mean what's located in Android > Data on your sd card, that's just the app user data/cache etc, not the actual app itself, you have to go into each app individually in Settings > Apps and select "move to sd card" to move the actual app.

​the Ultra 6 is better by miles!

Whatever you do don't buy online from Vodafone.
Worst experience ever.
I had purchased a handset online, payment went through, was out for delivery then for for no apparent reason the handset was recalled back by Vodafone.
I had to chase Vodafone for my refund which took about 3 weeks to come after calling them several times.

I just sold my SU6 for £80 on ebay
This is just the right size for me and under 8mm thick

I never ran anything that truely needed the qualcomm 615
1.5 gb ram is fine
Camera better ( not hard)

COCO

I've owned most of the flagship phones and a lot of budget ones . This j5 is one of my favourites . display and size are perfect .preferred this so much over the ultra 6 and size is perfect .Also the audio output is fantastic . I regularly hit 7 hours sometimes even 8 screen on time

Have ordered a SU6 through Voda online so will wait and see, but my experience of 10 years as a customer has been pretty good. Yes they f***k up sometimes, but always resolve it. Phones come when they say, and also if you're super OCD like me they're very good at taking phones back.

I normally get flagships and given the cost I'm quite picky about stuff like button alignment/general quality control etc. They exchange for brand new with no issues at all in first 14 days.

​Apart from the OTA updates it's had a few times over the past year?

This phone supports 4g? Not great with phones myself. I'm getting mixed answers. Vodafone website says its 3g but the 4g is not ticked under the specs.
