Have this model since May 2016.
Camera is non focus but 5MP is adequate. I have some glorious moments in my Instagram using this phone.
Please NOTE: this camera WILL maintain the low iso even in low light and the shutter speed WILL drop to 1/8 sec. in my own cases, so ... DON'T MOVE. Maintain the distance from 40cm or use extra plus dioptrine lense to shoot nearer than that.
This model is surprisingly stable for any of my activity, include: web browsing with Firefox, fill in excell file using MS app tbough the screen size is eye sore and many office tasks i need to perform when computer is out of my reach.
Surprise to be able to depend on this minion phone.
I purchased the Samsung j1 mini prime and am so furious. what is the point of having a 5MP camera when there is no auto focus, nowhere does it say in the above spec that the phone has no auto focus.
in fact i had tried a lot of mobiles, samsung j1 mini prime the latest on i got was so efficient to me in size and capability to offer me all what i need,
my phone is locked problem. samsung j1.you r have solution. please sir
Hmm get this phone at the end of y2016
The phone is just for someone who needs basic features, most apps can run on it
So sad it does not have autofocus feature, which means that it could not take capture something close to it. Not for students who are going to take photos of tiny little sentences on books
Anyway it is cheap(most important f me)
i purchased the Samsung j1 mini prime and am so furious. what is the point of having a 5MP camera when there is no auto focus, nowhere does it say in the above spec that the phone has no auto focus. what a dud! my old 9300 blackberry with 2mp camera took clearer pics. very disappointing
The phone is quite good.
Anything made by Samsung is good value.
The processors used in the J1 mini are quite strong and would take quite a long time for them to start exhibiting signs of fatigue.
The firm (Samsung)is simply the best.
Can I use a Samsung Galaxy J1 mini battery in a Samsung Galaxy J1 mini prime phone.
Need ti teplace the old battery but the retailers here only have the J1 mini battery

I think that this model SM-J106H-DS can ONLY use SD card OR 2nd SIM card slot, there is no dedicated SD card slot.
My battery in the Samsung Galaxy J1 Mini Prime is bad it drains every 5min its from philippines dipolog city and i also live there too.
Unlike most users, I don't like thin phone that much. If you are a pragmatic phone user and only prefer features that you need, this phone is more than enough
Yato, 19 May 2017battery life and camera suck other than that its okay but seriously sometime its died at 60% That's probably bcos you're charging it while playing online game.
LEE, 13 Apr 2017you sure j1 mini prime is support 4g???? Check the specification on this website.
So I just bought the Samsung Galaxy J1 mini prime (gold). It works perfectly fine. lets see what happens after one month. Bisides I will only use it for Whatsapp, FB Messenger (talk) and Facebook. Maybe a couple of local calls (5+ hours) per day. Hope the battery doesnt give up. My Blu Advance 4.0L (I rooted and flashed myself) does it really good. I switched to Samsung because I love it. Hope that this one does not dissapoint me!
