I just bought this phone the Samsung Galaxy J-1 replacing my old Moto G anyway I am really bummed out at the battery life. It does not hold a charge at all if I don't have it plugged in and play one of my games for 20 minutes it will drop 30% and all of the comments on how to keep it from doing that are so ridiculous having to take all of my apps and pictures off of the home screen and turning off WiFi this is only my second smartphone and I am very disappointed with it my Moto G was a better phone
Personally, I've had this phone for about 2 years and I can confidently say that this phone is "alright" for the price. I bought it for about 75 bucks and spent and extra 15 on a micro SD card. TBH despite it having 512 MB of RAM is does have it's fast moments. It's not going to be the best experience, and you can forget taking pictures with this. However, in totally for 75 dollars you're getting a pretty decent phone.
NOTE- since I bought a 7 dollar case off of Amazon I've dropped this phone COUNTLESS times, I've left it in the rain for about 30 minutes, and all I have to prove it is a tiny crack on the phone's screen. That's durability.
This phone, if you want to call it that, is a piece of shit. Don't waste your money people. If you are thinking a of cheap option for iPhone, forget it! Spend the money as this will not be worth the hassle you will get. Poor memory, poor picture quality, poor reception. I only use this as a phone, not for games etc, so I can only imagine people buying this for playing\downloading games would throw it against a wall after a few minutes. Predictive text is non existent, unless its 'the' or "when"....I could go on, but you get the picture. DON'T BUY THIS PHONE.

This is the worst phone i have ever owned. Since i bought it i was disappointed, the little space it has can't be used up completely or apps will crash, and it's so ancient that you can't even store apps completely on an SD card. The camera is rubbish and slow, and the phone itself is the same. It freezes and constantly needs restarting.
I can't believe someone made this phone and put it up for sale, what a joke. I would not recommend buying this phone, I've had mine for just over a year and im about ready to break it. It has just stopped receiving and sending texts/phone calls and there is nothing i can do to fix it.
Waste. Of. Money.
Ive had my Mob about 6 months with Dodo 2 yrs Con Yesterday I found for no reason it now wont call out or txt or recieve I asked a worker in Dodo Shop He couldnt help at all If i ring i be on phone Again 3-4-5 hrs Help Me ROD
The worst Samsung phone. If you are not a brand lover......then
In this budget you should go for Oppo budget phone's bcz Samsung galaxy is the slowest phone in the world I have ever seen....😬
It is not good as it uses memory very fast, photos quality are not good. And if you put your phone for a while in water i would be glitching after you pick it up. and after that my phone have been glitching till now. Not good phone ! j5 phone is much more better. If you want go picture quality, oppo phone is the best for you. NEVER BUY J1 PHONE
Samsung j1 has the worst reception of any smartphone. Piece of junk good only for text messages in poor signal areas.
worst mobile ever dont buy this mobile if you want to play game or anything heavy
If you want more than three apps and twelve photos this is not the phone for you
worst phone experience with somesong J1 (pun intended),
my experience up to date;
1) the "Back" & "View all apps" touch button suddently stops working for a month or so,
so if i view a video in FB..i cant get out...i have to restart every time.. and all apps stay active so my device becomes damm slow, then suddenly the "Buttons" work for a few days and the same repeats..
2) when i answer a call, put phone to my ear, the bluetooth on itself..and looking for other devices to connect,
3) some times when a call is coming in, and i try to answer it, i cant coz the touch screen does not respond, i cant even shut down or restart, i have to take down the battery.. and put it back after 10sec or so..
i will NEVER EVER buy another SomeSong Again.. (Again Pun Intended)
This has been the worse phone I have had. I've had to reset the phone several times a day to keep it working. If I put my music or apps on my SD the following day for some reason they are not on there. And NO I do not have app doing it either. This not a phone I would recommend to anyone at all...
