This phone has too many problems, the keyboard glitches, the screen can apparently move itself and when you scroll down the phone will autonatically scroll up. So reading manga, books and fanfiction will be a hassle. The camera is good, so is the sound. But this phone does not have enough RAM to multitask. It lags when on chrome and the wifi wont work sometimes. It plays up even the first time when you buy this phone. It has a good sized screen, and the features are pretty good. But I dont recommend anyone to get this phone. Its a waste of money.
BiccoâÂ„¢, 30 Jan 2016Guys I have read most of your comments about this phone & most of the comments are jus... moreThe comments are negative because the phone has too many problems, I have a couple of phones with 512Mb and dont have as many problems as this phone. You are correct Samsung have tried to provide a cheap phone (and they do provide others e.g. trend, ace which dont have as many problems), I did not expect anything fantastic at this price however I did expect to have a phone which worked without any software issue, an here I am talking about no other apps installed, just the Samsung out of the box and still it had problems. The build quality was good and the screen was good, but the pre-installed software (as provided by Samsung) for me had many issue net connection, call dropped and applications restarting for when you receive a call is not normal. I suspect you dont have this phone so dont know the issues people are reporting.
When I bought this phone, I realised it probably would be nearly as perfect as the S4, S6 etc however after only having it for 6 months, it continuously freezes, lags, always says no space. Its very dissapointing. Also the apps that come standard with it are such a waste as I dont even use most of them and you cant uninstall them because when your phone reboots itself, it just reinstalls/updated all of them again. Trying to create space is a nightmare. The constant freezing of the screen is a nightmare!!!!!!
Anonymous, 26 Jan 2016Phone sucks! Pictures won't download at all. Always come in MMS form and won't downloadofcourse the picture will come in mms form! what did you think MMS means? the word is multi media service and that means pictures is multi media once it is sent to u in a message form and in order to download the picture you have to have both credit and web browsing credit
the flash from the camera is the notification led fopr when text and calls come in so u probably dont know a thing about the phone
why when i update the software my facebook and messenger is not working? whats wrong with the update? not compatible in some of my apps.
its so slow in browsing and always choosing type of memory card and not automatically going to it when the ram is full. when downloading apps, its always showing memory full when theres a lot more at the memory card.
Guys I have read most of your comments about this phone & most of the comments are just negative.... If you knew that this phone lacks many things and doesn't perform well, why didn't you buy galaxy s6 or 7?? Samsung company is trying to help many people by making affordable smartphones. Cheap phones can't have all features that expensive phones have. This smartphone is bad for you but it's best for alot of people since they can afford it. So stop these negative comments, you would have read the review about this phone before buying it. Maybe you also bought it because you couldn't afford the perfect one and yet you're arguing of low ram, low internal memory, hanging issue.....etc.

J1 is scratchproof?
I have this phone and it sucks. The ram isnt good enough for multitasking so I have to optimize and close apps when I finish using them. While on chrome it lags alot and also crashes if you spend to much time on it. Screenshotting is pretty slow and the internal storage space is not good enough. The phone DOES NOT let you make SD card as default phone storage. It has laggy gameplay and no light sensor. It also has a bland design. The performance sucks and the phone can sometimes be slow. And dont even get me started on the glitching. The keyboard glitches which makes it hard to type and the screen moves by itself. When Im on social apps scrolling down the phone will always glitch which makes the phone scroll up automatically.
》No light sensor or notification LED
I suggest you do not get this phone
Sliko, 28 Jan 2016All of you people are to cheap. You pay for what you get and if you can only afford this for a... moreIts not just the a RAM issue, on the one I had I notice if you receive a phone call all the applications stop and restart (including the one you have open when the call comes in if you accept or reject it does not matter), Also the alarm did the same, so there are some software issues with this model (100H/DS). Samsung will keep losing phone customers if they keep providing porr support, with quality issue like this, I know its a cheap phone but it must at least do the basic functionality without any issues.
All of you people are to cheap. You pay for what you get and if you can only afford this for a quarter of the price of Samsung's top range phones then don't expect lots of RAM and multi tasking abilities...
Facts, 22 Jan 2016NO WAAAAY! Buy your phone but a BIG NO NO for samsung galaxy J1, at first, everything is reall... moreI have had this phone for literally 5 months now and it's started repeatedly freezing, apps crashing and messages not sending or being received. It has got to be a fault within this model for it to happen to a lot of people. I wouldn't recommend anyone getting this, it's not worth having it for only 5 months.
