Worst phone EVER made! I honestly think the Nokia 5110 is a MUCH BETTER phone with less problems!! If i had lots of apps on it or something like that i would understand. But just plain normal running it cant even cope with. Biggest piece of rubbish in history!
I really regret buying this phone. I bought it because I was on a budget and I needed a smartphone, and at first I thought it was OK. But if you install 4 or 5 apps on your phone then after about a month it will get super slow. Sometimes you want to type a message and the keyboard doesn't even load for a few minutes! I have had to reset to factory settings multiple times and only have the essential apps that I need but it still slows down after a month or so. DON'T GET THIS PHONE!
Thought samsung products were good not so sure now , various probs but now comes up with note sayimg " Unfortunately , Samsung keyboard has stopped ." Anyone tell me how to fix this?
Why did I not research this phone before purchase. Foolishly assumed Samsung to be reputable as previous Galaxy Ace was excellent...I didn't expect fabulous because it was inexpensive..I am pensioner....but I didn't need fabulous only needed basic.....it is Basic Unsmart Crap Phone.....looks pretty...looks cool....but very UnCool Indeed ...do not buy this phone!!!

Just got it yesterday. Instructions unclear (did ANYBODY proof-read them?). Sim card loading didn`t make sense.
This samsung J1 is not a smartphone, its a trash phone!.. hanging, self operating, display always freeze, random clicks on apps and etc.. etc.. name a phone problem i think this samsung J1 have it..
Not happy with it at all, it keeps freezing all the time, it calls random numbers from my contacts when i havent touched the phone and it keeps kicking me out of apps. I only purchaced it less than 3 months ago!
This is my first smartphone, It looked amazing and felt amazing for the first month, at first it appeared to be really good, With the only drawback being only 4gb of storage, But shortly afterwards the backspace key became sticky and letters kept duplicating themselves. I fixed this and all was good, Now the phones screen itself is freezing and when dragging it will occasionally click random things or stop working completely requiring a restart. Apps will randomly stop working and the sd card wont register occasionally. This phone is essentially now a fancy paperweight, Except its too light to be a paperweight.
2/10 - Not worth buying, Considering using the warrenty and reselling phone.
Best budget phone out there. Nearly hitting one year now and no complaints! I will admit had to take it to service centre once for having problem with the screen being greenish at times and unresponsive at places but those were all gone after screen replaced under warranty. Regarding battery life with both sim running and under very heavy usage I still get left out with little or more juice to finish of the day! Great battery life if used wisely. Apps runs smoothly if other unnecessary apps not running in the background. Camera is decent for the price. This phone is my fav till now have used several phones past over the years almost every brands from expensive to lower end budget phones. J1 is sleek and very slim and believe it or not I keep my Iphone 6 sitting idle on a corner of my house while I use J1 for as my daily phone. If you're willing to get it, get it now it's compact and nice, again use it wisely get the best out of it.

my J1 phone has been in once for repairs and now going in again. for freezing and keypad doesnt work. it types its own letters. gets stuck with a back space or duplicating letters
always hangs-up. Low Spreadtrum, samsung should manufacture at least 1gig spreadtrum like other budget phones.
Do not get this phone. Total waste of money. Never did I think a phone could be so slow and crash more than it actually loads. Simple tasks take 3x as long. Also who makes phones with enough space to download maybe 15 apps??? Wish I had done more research before getting stuck with this garbage
Agents has NO product knowledge!!! I now sit with a 2 year contract and a PHONE which I can't use.
Went to SAMSUNG- SORRY can't help you. Very unhappy PENSIONER.
The LCD just gone blank. its not showing anything. Calls and sms l hear but can't access.
yes indeed lately samsung produce more trash phone using low budget processor like spreadtrum its below mtk or qualcomm on perfomance compare to other low budget phone like xiaomi,zenfone,meizu,etc samsung is very left behind in specs and price
Pattie, 24 Feb 2016It's a piece of junk. Don't bother. I'm surprised Samsung has even released the piece of garba... moreI agree 100per cent the worst phone ever, it keeps freezing slow to load anything, its just the worst would never recommend it to anyone ever!
