Piece of shit phone! Hangs, slows for no reason, can't even multitask: i.e. Spotify/FB at the same time. Even now writing this the key pad locks up! DO NOT BUY!!!! CHEAP ISN'T ALWAYS CHEERFUL! if it had 1GB ram happy day but with only 512mb its useless! Go for the J2 Instead.
I Love this phone but sometimes it just slow down it's pace and respond later to my clicks.
But the most irritating thing is that when I play my music in the background and maybe log on Facebook,whatapp or other apps the music automatically stops.
It's really annoying me so much that I sometimes feel like throwing it away or cry.

Then put back the battery and cover. Give some time before switch on.
Battery overheat because one of the apps is eating the battery.
Go to Setting -> Battery -> Display battery percentage: mark.
The battery percentage will show on the notification bar.
Whenever you open and use the apps, regular glance at the battery percentage.
If app is taking in a lot of battery percentage, then it will be the problematic.
Also, after using any apps, below the phone, the left button is to show the recent tray.
Just above the center button, just click on the horizontal bar+x sign; this will remove those apps still running in the background to stop.

max, 12 Jun 2016What waste of money. Samsung really dropped the ball when the decided to release this phone These phones are a waste of money.The battery quality Is really bad.There is nothing special about the J1,it's just a normal touch screen with the same qualities as a pocket....like seriously! I thought the Samsung company always introduces new phones with their own special effects.The J1s are not secured from Viruses...in fact they get viruses unnecessarily fast.The galaxy J1 is the worst Samsung product that I've ever used.😡

Unless you turn on mobile data, wifi, bluetooth, etc; surf internet, music, sending photo, use camera, etc. Also if the phone screen is on all the time.
You have to go thru the phone setting to see which apps is eating the battery.
Go to setting, battery and check the apps percentage, normal is at most 5%, except Android system.
Maybe you do check-mark the Display battery percentage and monitor which apps during using cause the battery % to drop fast.
