I have received instructions from internet via my daughter how to deactivate the auto screen lock but the settings they give are not all the same as on my phone. Its more compatible to the bigger Samsung J1 and not the mini. As you would know they differ.
So let me try again. When I phone someone a picture of a padlock comes on the screen to show
that it has locked. To stop the conversation or to be able to get to the keypad to select a number option when needed with answering machines, I have to tap on the "padlock" twice before ending the call or to get to the keypad. If I'm not quick enough to tap on the keypad it locks again and I have to tap twice again ...... It is other than the swipe unlock of the screen and also not the time you can select for the phone to lock("switch off").

But can you explain a little bit more in detail.?
i don't guaranteed if i'll be of any help though. hahah.
I've asked and tried many options but still cannot manage to switch off the auto lock on the Samsung Galaxy J1 mini while talking. It becomes a problem when you need to select a number option while making a call. You have to tap twice on the padlock picture and then select the keypad. Often it locks before I could manage to select the keypad and then a number.
Rocker, 09 Jul 2016Not at all satisfied with the performance..Always have the issue with mobile internet.Even if ... moreOut of all the phones have ever owned (including useless telstra and optus brands) the samsung galaxy 1-5 are by far the worst of all time. Constantly freezing on regular bases and having to restart or disconnect battery too reset. Unbelievably most pathetic and worst brand of all time with worst in every field.

Not at all satisfied with the performance..Always have the issue with mobile internet.Even if we have full 3g netwrk, the phone didnt perform well( have checked with otjer phones with same mobile providers, and got prooved this ). if we shift mobile internet from sim1 to sim2.then sim1 will be inactive..cant get any calls neither cant do outgoing. need to restart again. otherwise need to go mobile netwrks then need to select our sim1 mobile network.then only it will be active.
Calling clarity is poor.mic sound also sucks. if u have hear phones atleast u can adjust.
No inbuilt photo/video editors. we need to download that from samsung store. for that mb we will get much better photo editors from play store..
Music player is also not upto the mark.
No zooming options in camera.. selfie with 2mp need not need to explain.
Phone seems to be lagging always. some time while we type keypad will get stuck..we need to restart again. thats really worse.
Battery standby is ok.u can use atleast 5 hrs continuosly internet (3g)
No heating problems .

It works good but I have an 8gb SD card but the phone will not work
you can't even open the facebook app with this and the touchscreen keeps doing things by itself after about a week of using it.
its best but it has touch problem and automatic switches off after 1 year uses
I have been using j1 for a year now and i don't want to replace it with any phone ... You need to know how to operate this phone very well if u want to see the good result ... but for me this phone is best ever ... from pics quality. memory. is just the best when it comes to download different types of applications ... if the application isn't good for i t tells you to uninstall it immediately... I do everything in my j1,watching movies ...muaaa to j1 remember I'm talking about the first j1 realised on Feb 2015 ...

J1 is the most worst phone i have used ever. everything wrong with it. there are two sim slot
if i receive one call in sim one. sim 2 will be useless for 10 minutes. phone always, takes too long to open mails, and many more complication i brought it from Sharaf DG Dubai, i went to them two times to complain but they said phone is perfectly ok. this phone makes my life miserable, i became so frustrated i hit the phone in my office table and break it, i lost complete faith on samsung
this phone is garbage. storage ALWAYS full even with new memory card!
the worst phone ever! Craziest dumbest phone ever! Data connection is so bad. Ive done too many resets already no changes at all. Too many j1 coming in the market now. Phase that out you might be losing customers. Better to buy cheap phones.
