I had my phone for 2 years running. Firstly, this phone is quite laggy when you're playing games that require high fps like c-ops. Next, the 8GB storage is definitely not enough as i only have the space for some apps like whatsapp, insta, facebook lite and a game. This phone is also quite slow as compared to others. I recommend spending your money on something else or paying more money for a better phone.
I really liked to use this phone until it got cracked and started lagging like hell.....now im using an lg v30+ and samsung galaxy a7 2016
I hate my dad for buying this phone as a surprise gift for me! Using this phone for 1st 3months was exciting, and after that it showed its true colour! IT SUCKSSS!! it freezes like shit! pls dont buy it guys. I dont know abt other j series but J100 4G is a pathetic piece of crap! After a google service update...which is compulsory to do...it is probably useless as ever! samsung dont care for their customers
philip, 06 Dec 2017my phone restarts by itself It's magic wooooooooo
I have this phone and its fine i dropped it form the second story of a mall and it didn't break. it has glitches but it works fine plus I'm not the only one who has owned this device. so that's pretty damn good compared to iPhones and ya'll's stupid other phones that are eventually going to break and/ or explode
Its been 3 years since i've been started to use my J1 . first of all i have to say that its not good ..i mean not at all good bcuz you are living in 2018 now . I barely can use insta , facebook .Only thing that works is whatsapp .And no game works nowadays .I used to play games below 100mb but now , i cant even install and use it without crashing cant even play a 10 mb game.And specs are really bad too.Am a teen so my parents bought me this and they said i wont get another in a year or so thats why am stuck up with this bullshit.But i never thought it would work for 3 years when i first saw . F*ck
Worst J series phone ever. Dont buy this phone. 512mb ram + dual core 1.2 ghz = cancer. Lags every time. Recommend to buy J1 2016 instead if you want similar and fixed specs . Or buy later versions like J3 J7 etc.
J1 is wrost phone i have used. I don't recommend
any one to bye this shit.....
My samsung j100 is now completely dead after its os crashed giving me only an option to do a reset , after factory reset it was stuck on boot loop,.i did enter recovery mode to do wipe data , clear cache, it didn't work, so then tried to flash it and it didnt turn on.
Charging does not work.
No Power its complety dead.
Cannot enter Recovery.
Cannot enter Download Mode.
Battery is good, cable is good.
It's an absloute piece of shit. It lags when doing ABSOLUTLEY ANYTHING. Don't buy this phone, there is a lot of other options that are a bit more expensive, but you will get something atleast capable of watching Youtube at 360p. The biggest downside of this phone, other than the performance, is that some letters like "a" or "p" are not accessible because the edges of the screen are not very precise. I found myself very frustrated when typing. WOULD NOT RECOMMEND TO ANYONE with atleast some self-respect
Pastor Jeremiah long, 05 Jan 2018I Have too say I Just Got My For Christmas 25th Last Year and its fastest and i Believe everyo... moreIf it gets Android go maybe ok but with 512Mb of memory and 4Gb storage you options are very limited.
I Have too say I Just Got My For Christmas 25th Last Year and its fastest and i Believe everyone comments are a lie i found this phone to be great and lovely and its sexy bold stern looks case makes that fat look steps out very good i love it............
Got the J1 2015 & still loving it! Â“Entry levelÂ” smartphone is spot on. Does all the basics i need for a decent price. Very pleased. DonÂ’t expect wonders, but if you just want to be able to browse the web, check emails & take medium quality photos, it is great.
I read a commend about a person that said the J1 is crap, no its not I drop my Samsung j1 duos in the water, after an hour I get it out after a long search for it. when I remove if from the water I removed the battery and the sim and left it in the sun. hours later I put the battery back and till now the phone work not even the battery is damage so to me is the Samsung J1 DUOS the best J1 series
it is a total piece of shit. it lags alot and even types crap by itself. extremelyyy slow and takes alot longer to open an app or load a page compared to sooo many other phones. samsung should be ashamed of creating such a shitty product. whoever who gets one is really unlucky and you should get an iphone instead.
