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).
Galaxy j1 just doing what it wants when it wants and really slow and closes apps on me like fb messenger if I'm typing any ideas how to sort this??? much appreciated

Iron Man, 04 Jan 2016This is also my issue. I hope someone will help us.If you have the connect problem (reported by me yesterday) restart the phone every day seems to help, it seems be more of a problem after two or three days.
