I just signed up for the plan as well, thanks for all the comments and answers in this thread. As an aside, the J3 offered is now J3 Prime which comes with Android 7.

I heard some nasty things about the GR5's GUI before I bought it. I suspect it once was really bad, but the latest updates seemed to address that. I am in no immediate rush to change the OS to stock Android now that I have the phone.

Yeah, Samsungs's Touchwiz is still awful, especially on low end phones. Easy enough fix, just install another launcher like Nova Launcher. Easy enough to get rid of if you do not like it, but you will probably like it.
I used Nova Launcher since Samsung Core LTE. When I upgraded to GR5, I just moved my Nova Launcher config to GR5 and continued to use my customized interface without spending too much time.
Have too many phones... This is how I limit my monthly phone payment.

Don't know, I'm afraid I'm not much of an Android person. :) It's apparently a 2017 phone instead of 2016, if that matters.

Edited comment as link had wrong phone...better comparison a couple comments down

I got the old J3 last week model is SM-J320W8

The good news is that I am about to create my second account for my son and get referral from first account

On another note, the customer service is really quite impressive. My daughter took her new phone to Seattle and left data roaming on and hit the $100 CRTC limit. Called Zoomer and they back dated a travel pack making the mistake a lot less costly. The only downside is that they don't do Roam like home.

J3 prime has 1.5GB memory
GR5 has 2GB memory.
Stay with phone or PC with more memory. JMO

I think you might have the wrong phone for comparison, since the j3 prime is worse than the 2017 J3

From what I can see, J3 Prime only has TFT screen, not the Super Amoled that J3 has.
