  • Cannot do anything on it
    S W (Jan 14, 2018) on Gadgets 360
    J5 2016 is trash. I bought one new about 8 months ago, never dropped it or anything. I've always been good with electronics, computers, phones, etc so I know when I have a problem with a device, it's the device, not me. I don't know if it was the Android 7 update or just a faulty phone but I can't seem to do anything right on this piece of garbage phone. The screen turns on randomly even when I'm not touching it. Google chrome will not stop refreshing for no reason. Spotify and other music apps stop playing music for no reason. Everything is glitchy and just doesn't work right. Tried factory restoring and that didn't help. Still tons of problems. Seems to have a problem with literally everything you tell it to do.
