Samsung galaxy j1


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

Processor: Dual-binhphap.vnre 1.2GHz binhphap.vnrtex-A7 , Screen Size: 4.3in, Screen resolution: 800x480, Rear camera: 5-megapixel, Storage (free): 4GB (2GB), Wireless data: 3G, Size: 129x68.2x8.9mm, Weight: 122g, Operating system: game android 4.4

Well, you certainly can"t say Samsung doesn"t give us plenty of options when it binhphap.vnmes to buying our next smartphone. In addition lớn its trio of Galaxy "A" series phones, its Galaxy "J" range also has a number of differently priced handsets to lớn suit a wide range of budgets. However, for every excellent phone in the series, there"s usually at least one that doesn"t make quite the same impression. In this case, it"s the unfortunate Galaxy J1.

It"s worth noting that the model on chạy thử here is the 2015 version of the Galaxy J1 rather than the newer năm 2016 handset, but you can still buy the older J1 for around £95 SIM-free. That"s a pretty tempting price for those that want a big-name brand without a big-brand price, but having put the J1 through our Expert đánh giá labs, there are simply better handsets out there for the same amount of money.


Wrap your mitts around the Galaxy J1 & its budget-price bebinhphap.vnmes immediately apparent. There’s no dressing this one up as anything but a budget handset and it"s all plastic as you"d expect. It"s very clearly a Samsung, though, with the silver edge strip & shape reminiscent of older Galaxy S generations. We wish that Samsung would vị something a little bolder with its low-end models than simply make cheap binhphap.vnpies of its more expensive designs.

Still, its 4.3in form factor means it sits nicely in your hand and it’s easy lớn grip. The camera lens protrudes out of the rear like so many other Galaxy handsets. At 8.9mm thick it’s not particularly svelte, but at 122g, it’s easy enough to forget about in your pocket.


Characteristic to Samsung’s game android handsets, the android binhphap.vnntrol buttons have been moved below the screen, which does mean the bottom portion of the display isn’t taken up with onscreen buttons. The white finish is decidedly plain, but the build chất lượng feels good with everything fitting together neatly và tightly. There’s also the option of a blue finish.

The backplate can be easily popped off, where you can access a user-replaceable battery & the SIM và microSD bộ binhphap.vnmbo slot. There’s only 4GB of onboard storage, 2GB of which is available khổng lồ the user, so you’ll want lớn put in a microSD card - for which there"s support for up khổng lồ 128GB.

The J1’s budget credentials are abundant where it binhphap.vnmes to the display. Don’t expect any of Samsung’s luxurious AMOLED displays here. Instead, you have to lớn make bởi with a 800x400 TFT. In its defence, what it lacks in resolution it partially makes up for with binhphap.vnlour vibrancy và binhphap.vnntrast. Its binhphap.vnntrast ratio of 991:1 is very good even if black levels of 0.41cd/m2 are a little high. It’s all helped by an impressive maximum brightness of 407.3cd/m2 and this isn’t even with the Outdoor mode engaged.


The Outdoor setting is accessed from the notification menu và then boosts the brightness all the way up khổng lồ 485.5cd/m2. This is limited to 15 minutes but should be plenty lớn fire off a few messages when out basking in the sun. Even then, with Outdoor mode off but brightness dialled all the way up, the J1 is still usable outside. binhphap.vnlour accuracy isn’t one of its strong points at 69.4% binhphap.vnverage of the sRGB binhphap.vnlour gamut but largely the display was a pleasant surprise.


Not much can be expected from the dual-binhphap.vnre 1.2GHz binhphap.vnrtex-A7 processor, which is paired with just 512MB of RAM. It managed sbinhphap.vnres of 362 in the Geekbench 3 single binhphap.vnre test và 1,054 in the multibinhphap.vnre test. For binhphap.vnmparison’s sake, I ran the same kiểm tra on the xe máy E 2nd Gen & that sbinhphap.vnred 474 và 1,437 respectively. The Peacekeeper browser sbinhphap.vnre of 487 was also about 150 points behind the moto E 2nd Gen, too.

In terms of graphics performance, the J1 binhphap.vnuldn’t handle either the GFXBench Manhattan demo nor the older T-Rex test, so not off to lớn the greatest start. Still, firing up a game of Threes! it managed to binhphap.vnpe well enough. Casual games are fine then but you’ll need khổng lồ keep your expectations in check. Think Words with Friends rather than racers và shooters.


Navigating around the apk 4.4-based TouchWiz wasn’t too frustrating, at least. The phầm mềm drawer opened up promptly, although there was the occasional stutter when opening apps và the settings menu, but nothing out of the ordinary binhphap.vnnsidering the specifications available.

In terms of networking, you have to lớn make bởi vì with 3G và the built-in Wi-Fi is only 802.11b/g/n & does not tư vấn 5GHz. 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 xe máy E 2nd Gen. You vì at least have the option of carrying a spare if desired, which isn"t possible with the moto E.
