i personally use this phone for almost 2 weeks now, one thing i noticed is that it lacks updates on notifs, i mean my viber app, i still need to open the app itself to get my message also the messenger and skype. so i do miss some important message at first. and it lags, maybe because of the ram, i don't have much app installed, no games too but its so laggy.
Anonymous, 09 Jan 2016i dont understand why you guys are having so many trouble with the J1.. i have my phone from n... moreThere are 7 different models listed as the Galaxy J1, so maybe you got a good model/build, I have a J100H/DS latest build and it is one of the worst phone I have every had.
HI! Good day! i just wanna ask if why can't i open downloaded files like documents and pdf. on my old phone i haven't encountered this problem, but since i got my new samsung J1 i wasnt able to open and read files. i hope somebody can answer my question. Thank You!
Anonymous, 06 Jan 2016i have samsung j1 and it is working well with gamesThis phone is very slow..it's useable.......
otep, 06 Jan 2016Galaxy j1. Is it really not compatible for clash of clans? No it is compatible to Clash Of Clans.You just need to update your android version then only you can download COC.But one thing thought,Updates are very slow.I mean you have to wait for the service provider to let you have the new updates of your android version.
Can't open any files from e-mail or internet like application forms
Plus when I try upload photos to facebook it just reloads the page?? Samsung J1 ?
this is good phone no hanging nice phone.good primary and secondary camera
Mine has like a Gray screen and I can't do anything. I don't know what to do please someone tell me what to do.
Very slow i hate it, mobile data disable in any network i reformat it in my laptop same problem. Just a waste of money. Dont buy this.
i dont understand why you guys are having so many trouble with the J1.. i have my phone from november 2015 and at the very first it moved slow and freezed but after speacking with a tec from my location (not samsung tech)(mobile phone tech) i download the app that was recommended and it worked smooth. and just because i wanted to i did a backup and reset from through the setting and since then my phone works great.. no freezing no hanging
"Can anyone tell me if this is good phone , for taking photos and texting/chatting .(viber) ? And about the battery"
hi. i have this phone from 3 weeks ago. for this money and this class the phone is great.
5mp camera makes photos no so good (for me). i fitted camera for 3.1mp 2048x1536 (4:3) and 1 photo is around 1,5mb. (depend my old galaxy S2 gt-i9100 of witch i fitted camera for 2.4mp 2048x1232 and 1 photo is around 400-500kb but quality is much much much much better. i don't like pictures with size 4-5-6...mb)
for texting/chatting is very good. i am thinking how it does with only 512mb ram. i use apps - messenger, facebook, skype, telegram, bittorrent, mx player, igo, app of my bank, and installed apps by default. i use 3-4-5 apps the same time 30-40mb ram less from 512mb but the phone is still fast.
battery is very strong. 1850mah. can use the phones hours
1. to open video file you must install video player cause default video can't open many files.
2. i still can't connect the phone with computer via usb cable. and i don't know why?
3. appro. 04.2012 i bought galaxy s2 gt-i9100 which i still use to date and he never let me down. i will never sale it. greatest phone. has everything from which i need
I have had mine since November, and it has a glitch where it disconnects from your network provider, when you try to call or text, a message will appear "Not registered on network" Apparently this is a common problem with recent samsung phones. (Search google for more info) There are ways around it that involve taking out battery/sim, pressing home & power button, waiting a couple mins then replacing battery/sim. But it's too annoying to keep doing. And my touch screen has a life of its own. So NO, I wouldn't recommend the Samsung J1.
Can anyone tell me if this is good phone , for taking photos and texting/chatting .(viber) ?
And about the battery
why does it takes 2 to 3 seconds to open an app or whenever i click any icon? i even have to shut down or restart my phone.
this phone is no good.
when I play candy crush it is too slow and it closes the game I play..
sometimes it logs and you cant touch its screen...not functional
Anonymous, 06 Jan 2016my j1 is only 2 gb . y?Out of the box, you will have 2Gb free but as soon as you connect to the play store some of the will be used to install software (google email), this means you only have 1.2Gb for your information (pictures/games), it also only has 512Mb RAM which does not help, it really a phone to aviod if you want to do anything complicated other than making phone calls and sending SMS, it not to good a surfing the web due to a software error it reports most pages as not avialable (unless you restart before surfing).
