I read all the comments ( most of them) about this Galaxy J1 smart phone. I have to say, unless i dont expect much from my phone, which i dont think is true, i found thid phone to be just fine. I dont know what everyone is bitching about. reading these reviews I am starting to wonder why i am not having any issues. I use it for email. texting, internet, everything you would use a smartphone for , and I have NONE of these issues. I bought the phone out right. no contract. it was a great deal. and again, i have had No issues. I have had the phone for about a year now, so i think i am giving a fair review, ( not like i had it for a week ) for the money, i think this phone is great. the only issue i have had that aggrivates me, is that when I use the "talk/text" it wasnt hearing what i was saying correctly, about 50% of the time - BUT, i figured out how to fix it, I changed the talk speed to "fast" and BANG, suddenly everything i say is fast and correct !!! - - SORRY TO BE THE PARTY POOPER, but i think for the money, THIS PHONE ROCKS!!
Not a great phone.
I bought it only for anonymous wifi browsing and i have to say it sucks for this.
I get phantom touches quite regularly, and the keyboard sometimes dances when i use it .-.
Also, i'll be reading a web article and it'll zoom me right back to the top for no apparent reason.
One time i was reading text to a friend from an image on Instagram and my phone decided to "like" the post for me then it decided that i didn't need to follow the OP anymore .-.
Also, slow: much lag. Internet browser feels shallow and basic and my internet shuts down regularly.
I'm considering rooting it and installing a custom rom, provided that the ghost touches are a software issue and not a hardware problem .-.
I hate this phone so much - it freezers/doesn't respond to anything/takes sooo long to do anything on it, now I'm stuck with it for another 12 months!!!!!!
This phone was a complete waste of money. Next to no storage space, touch screen stuffs up multiple times a day, freezes, internet crashes. I wish i had stayed with apple (and thats saying a lot)

Shima, 20 Mar 2016My phones touth donot work what am i doing?please help meSamsung Galaxy J1 is quite an average phone inspite of all the crashes it made
It crashes because of insufficient RAM or Random Access Memory which is only 512MB and built-in system apps already consume much of it leaving only few MBs which is capable of only handling a single app at a time.. Sad to say that even facebook app cannot run smoothly because of that matter... I would only suggest that Samsung will at least improve J1 by putting more RAM to solve the problem
The phone's camera is great. The hat heads is not working and messaging app is removed from the ultra power saving mode application slot.
Stupid doesnt even have gyroscopic use that means u cant use VR (virtual reality headset)

meda, 29 Mar 2016I cannot open all my apps,coz i forgot the applock,please help me what to do,thankshere is a solution uninstall the app that you used to lock your app or if the app gives you a option to reset the password use that option
J1 is a very good phone the only reason people have problem with it is because they dont try to find solutions for it because complaining is much easier.. i had all named issues with my J100m after spending a lot of time finding solutions my phone works gr8 and you know every phone i look at whether it be samsung or another brand its reviews are more about how bad the phones are... which i beleive is just people who just encounter 1 problem and run back to store where it was purchased and expect the retailer should fix it no one ever sit down and try to know or explore the phone. i know that you would say the device should work and you shouldn't have to try to find solutions since you are paying you money however remember nothing is perfect but something for technology is always created as a solution thats why the playstore is there, and there are millions of apps in the playstore that fits as a solution for any fault an adroid or mobile device can have

I am very hppy with my Samsung J1. The camera is excellent (seems better than my Samsung 10" tablet camera). I found J1 was having lots of problems until I removed the facebook app. I now access fb from the web app & it works fine. Occasiinally it slows down (& doesn't recover fully when I run 360 Security app) so restarting sorts it out. I always close a bunch of apps when they show up as running, but 360 Security still says there are more - not sure why
