Suzan, 09 May 2016Is this phone a good replacement for the S5. I can not afford a S5/6 at this stage. At the mom... moreJ1 is consider low-range.
S5 is consider mid-range.
Both are outdated.
There are plenty of phones in low-range.

Most probably something stuck between the screen & screen protector.
Remove all the screen protector & tempered glass, to see if the problem go away. If it go away, then you know the answer.
If no screen protector &or tempered glass, then you need to polish the screen surface.
Do note use those wipes for phones, and soft cloth (to clean spectacles).
Some phone screen surface is very sensitive.

Never listen to these people as they are interested to get your money.
Go to big Retails shops and Telcos as they do not sell imitation or export set, which you had.
During calls, if you put near to your ear, it auto detect and turn off the screen. You need to move away from the phone and you face the screen. Some will auto turn on the screen. If not, then just click on the On/Off button &or Home button.
No phone will guarantee that the phone is water proof. It is due to surface water and timing.

Go to Store to get free antivirus apps, such as AVG and many others. After install, do Full scan. There do have a lot of apps with malware, as when i bought another phone, all the so-called factory pre-loaded apps are all malware apps.

This will be my first Samsung and it gives me stress. I can't download. Memory is full all the time. And every app keeps crashing. What did Samsung think.I'm really disappointed.

Make sure that the setting in the router SSID is using 2.4GHz only.
Sometime it may take time to get connect.
Just go to setting -> Wifi, and select the SSID & click to connect.
This is why it may take a bit longer time to connect on 2.4GHz which is slow and limited coverage. And sometime you need to go near to the router to (auto) connect faster.
Good morning i dont who person that expert in samsung. I dont what to do? My samsung j1 have problem in wifi setting. I cannot reopen it the wifi on? What is right to do? How can i fix it? Please help me i dont know what to do?
I keep reading posts that this phone is for light users only and people are expecting too much from a cheap phone. I am a light user I phone and txt only, but the phone constantly turns itself off , it has wiped my calandar completley so I dont know any of my appointments. I cannot see the txts I have sent and I dont recieve my txts. The phone freeze all the time, the camera plays up and my time and date are wrong and have gone back to january. The list of problems is endless and I am off to buy a new phone, even though I cannot afford it because I cannot trust this phone at all. I will never buy a samsung again.
I have never before had a phone as useless as the J1 from SAMSUNG!! The Samsung repair shop convinced me with the first J1 that the phone somehow developed a water related problem, the repair of which was +- equivalent to the price of a new J1 -- I fell for the explanation and bought my current J1 (which I think I should throw it in the bucket and go and retrieve my very old first Nokia):
The screen goes blank if someone phones (not every time),
you have to wait a full minute for an apps to respond or it simply goes blank on you and after some time says the apps is not responding..
I can list more such annoying problems, but the above has almost made me throw the phone to pieces on a wall!
Am I the only one who has some kind of screen problem? It taps like 20 times/sec where I don't even tap? What should I do?
If your are a gamer,it sucks cause it will crash and has heating issues,ive been using this 1year,samsung phones is really durable
this is the worst phone i hv ever used.... every app in this cell is not responding... just fed up from this....
This phone gaves nightmares. Im texting 1 line sms for 10 minutes. But its really goodstres test because you need to hold yourself back so you dont trow it and jump on it. It crashes more than me in gta san andreas. Please im WARNING you dont buy it. Nokia 3310 is ten times faster.
