Samsung Galaxy J1 (2015) review: This is no Moto E

 

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

The Samsung Galaxy J1 has respectable build quality for a smartphone this cheap and the display was also a pleasant surprise, putting the low resolution aside. However, those are the J1’s only positive qualities. The Moto E 2nd Gen is available for a...

Samsung Galaxy J1 Review

 

The Samsung Galaxy J1 is compact, super affordable and does the basics well, but the hardware and software could both be better

+ Very cheap ; + Solid design ; + Decent battery life

- Lacking power ; - Only 4GB of built in storage ; - Older Android version

The Samsung Galaxy J1’s main selling point is its price. At around £80 SIM-free, even less on pay as you and for nothing upfront on very low cost contracts it’s cheaper than a smartphone has any right to be.

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 Rua from Uk on 4th Oct 2016 Asked by bry from Tanzania on 16th Jul 2016 when iam...

Slow, mind of its own, freezes and not all apps can be moved to sd card to free up (small) memory.

Samsung Galaxy J1

 

My wife brought this as her first phone with a proper key board rather than her little brick that she swore by, she thinks it is brilliant and wishes she had switched before.
