Gets you solid overall performance at an affordable price

from PC Magazine

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 530 and has a higher resolution display than the similarly priced LG K7.
