To ensure this phone will work with your carrier please check to make sure the frequencies your carrier uses are supported by this phone. The full list of compatible carrier frequencies can be found here, the frequencies this phone supports can be found in the product specifications.

Android 7.1 Nougat
The Android operating system integrates heavily with Google's services. Using the card-based Google Now, Android quickly surfaces information for you whenever you need it, powered by the same Knowledge Engine that runs Google's web search. It's a personalized and customizable OS, allowing you to add your favorite apps or widgets to your homescreen. You can even download new themes using the Google Play Store, which offers access to more than one million apps, games, books, music, movies, and more. Android 7.0 Nougat adds major productivity capabilities to the operating system in the form of a multi-window view, which allows for two apps to be placed onscreen at a time. An improved notification system allows you to interact with texts and emails right from your notification pane - without needing to open the app. Other features include file-based encryption, a Data Saver mode, the ability to scale text and icons to better suit your phone's screen, and more.

Samsung Galaxy J5 Pro reviews

Galaxy J5 Pro SM-J530G 16GB Smartphone (Region Specific Unlocked, Gold) is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Scaled Down Version of the Samsung Galaxy S7 Prior to purchasing this device, I shopped around for other phones in the so-called "budget smartphone" category of around $200 USD or less price range. There are some really good options out there from other mobile phone manufacturers but if you still fancy the physical home button, all metal housing, clear and bright screen, good camera and ridiculously long lasting battery life and do not want to buy an Apple iPhone, look no further and snatch yourself one of these beauties...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from amazing phone I was looking for a good phone with a nice camera. This phone has exceeded my expectations. I like the camera. I am still trying to get used to all the features. So far so good.
