Samsung Galaxy J6 (2018) Smartphone Review

 

A new member of the Galaxy family. The Samsung Galaxy J6 (2018) impresses with its combination of solid hardware. The J6 (2018) packs a 5.6-inch super AMOLED HD + resolution display, two SIM slots and an octa-core CPU for 269 Euros RRP (~$313). Find...

high-quality workmanship ; dual-SIM ; microSD card support ; Android Oreo 8.0 ; LTE Cat. 6 ; support for many frequency bands ; precise GPS module ; good fingerprint sensor ; bright display ; accurate color reproduction ; impressive battery life

plastic case ; no Full HD resolution ; Micro USB instead of USB Type-C ; no brightness sensor ; PWM display flicker ; slow Wi-Fi ; not all games run smoothly ; no quick charging

The Samsung Galaxy J6 (2018) is a good entry-level smartphone that is lacking in some crucial areas. Samsung relies too heavily on the weight of its Galaxy J series, to the extent that we recommend last year’s Galaxy J5 (2017) over the J6 (2018). The...

Samsung Galaxy J6: Samsung’s budget-friendly smartphone with flagship features

Samsung Galaxy J6 review

 

Stops at Infinity

Super AMOLED display produces inky blacks ; Snappy performance ; Camera quality is great in well lit conditions

Lower resolution screen ; No fast charge and USB Type-C

An all-round performer that is a tad shy of newer features to beat competition

Great phone for the price range

 

Great phone for the price range, only been disappointed by Very communication hence the 4 starts. The only think mentioned on the box is to use it for 20 mins but Samsung said that you need to use it for 24 Hrs in Europe/UK before you can use it...

Good phone for the price

 

"Old phone just didn't have enough storage. Needed to get a bigger memory with the operating system now taking up 9GB of memory! (I still believe they should specify the free memory when the OS takes up so much but...). This seemed a reasonable phone...

Super

 

I bought this a few days ago and I love it. I'm a bit of a technophobe but found it easy to set up and use. It is a super little phone.
