Samsung Galaxy J1 Smartphone Review

 

Entry-level Galaxy. The small Galaxy smartphone has a 4.3-inch display and therefore does not follow the current trend towards bigger displays. But Samsung is not very generous with the rest of the components, either. Can the Galaxy J1 beat the strong...

sturdy chassis, compact dimensions, replaceable battery, SD slot, long battery runtimes, bright display

only 4 GB storage, only 512 MB RAM, slow processor, long loading times, no ambient light sensor

The Samsung Galaxy J1 is a very decent device for 109 Euros (~$122), which leaves a good impression in many important areas. The chassis is very sturdy and you can hardly differentiate it from more expensive Galaxy models. The rear cover can also be...

Samsung Galaxy J1 review

 

The Samsung Galaxy J1 was originally released in India early in 2015 and is now available in the UK. It's a cheap, entry-level smartphone, but it cuts too many corners with its dual-core processor and tiny memory. We think it would prove to be a...

Samsung originally launched the J1 in Asian markets only. It's a smartphone that's stripped to the basics, and we fear that it's just too basic for the UK market. Asked by bry from Tanzania on 16th Jul 2016 when iam wakeup early morning 04am its work...

Samsung Galaxy J1 review - the Moto E has nothing to worry about

 

The Samsung Galaxy J1 is cheap for a reason and there are better options available if you don't want to spend much

Battery life was distinctly average at 10 hours 7 minutes in our standard battery test. This is 3 hours 30 minutes short of the time achieved by the Moto E 2nd Gen. You do at least have the option of carrying a spare if desired, which isn't possible...

Great phone at a great price

 

I recommend it. Samsung is a top cell brand.

To me it is as good as an Samsung S6.

To get a case that fits you'll have to go to another online site. J100 cases do not fit it.
