terrible phone. The basic design is crap, volume on one side and on/off on the other, how do you normally pick up your phone?... with your fingers on the side of course, so when you pick it up you either accidentally press the on/off or the volume, on the front there are three buttons down the bottom and touch the screen and it will do something else. It's constantly going off taking photos or dialling someone in my pocket. I set it to take a lock code to stop that happening but the Samsung geniuses made it so the camera icon and emergency dialling is still there when the phone is locked. iphone had the brains to put the on/off button at the top and the button at the bottom is recessed, so you don't accidentally press them. There are so many pre-installed apps that cannot be uninstalled that the battery goes flat within 48 hrs (my old iphone 3 lasted about 4-5 days). It sometimes turns itself off and goes to screen saver while your dialling. I will never buy another Samsung !

Galaxy J1 got 1 app that it cannot use, it is Facebook (original) app, it consumes too much ram from J1, try to change it to Facebook lite, smaller fb.
Estelle, 22 Feb 2017All my whats-up messages and SMS's take my airtime and not data, way. Please assistI too have a Samsung Galaxy J1 and find that within 12 hours used up R12 of my money.
How can I stop this - please advise OR replace this phone for an other set
I was told this would HOLD and RUN my apps - I only have a few! It doesn't! I have moved what I can to the SD card. When the built-in (useless) apps update, I have to go in an clear data! No wonder they gave it to me for free!
I bought three storage cards and the handset has corrupted them all they stopped storing after 1 week HAAAAAAAAA why ??? samsung you need to address this its a big problem when travelling !!
Easily the worst phone ever. I had an SD car from my previous phone and everything saves to the miniscule internal storage and not to the sd card. I am apperantly unable to receive texts because of lack of storage. Not to mention the camera sucks.
Shevvy, 05 Mar 2017I swapped batteries on my phone and all my photos have disappeared. Does anyone know how I can... moresounds like trouble with sim-card. Battery shouldn't have anything to do.
Try taking the memory card out and back in, or test it in another device/computer.
I have had this telephone for half a year. I haven't had any problems at all. A battery charge usually lasts about 2 days with basic use (texting, calling, email. basic browsing), about 1.5 days under normal use (a few youtube videos, texting, email, basic browsing), and 1 day if used periodically with it's camera, movie apps etc.
At one time, the camera activated in my pocket and was on for about 2 hours without going off and when I took it out, it was very very warm, almost hot. I thought the battery might have been damaged due to the excessive temperature but I let it cool down, then recharged the phone and the battery and phone are both still going strong. I'll keep this phone for 4 or so years.
I swapped batteries on my phone and all my photos have disappeared. Does anyone know how I can retrieve them?
I bought the samsung galaxy j1 pp back in december of 2016, I had liked the phone because of its color blue. I even tried finding a proper case and screen protector, I got frustrated from smudging fingerprints. I would call evey Verizon Wireless store to see if they carried a phone case for my phone. I was be told they have never heard of the Samsung Galaxy J1 before only the j3. I wouldn't recommend buying the phone its hard finding the right accessories...
I have been using the J1 for about a year now and I seriously long for the day I can smash it. It would be satisfactory given all the times (multiple times a day) its crashed or frozen and become unresponsive.
i hate this phone.. i used it almost 2 years.. and all of the comments below are all true... poor battery and lots of crashes, easily heated and i really hate this...
next target was the vivo v5 plus... and i am excited for it hahahaha... buy it guys.. and you will get replenished for all the angers you had in this phone.
Hi J1 doesn't have enough memory to run as a smartphone. Operating system takes up almost all internal memory. Mine came with an SD card but doesn't help overcome internal memory problem. Calls and text ok but anything else is unresponsive and crashes. Would never recommend this phone.
Its absolute crap. Coming from samsung what were they thinking. My screen laggs and on the netvwhen i scroll down and up the whole phone does its own thing and also when my phone is on 25% charge whithin abminute it shuts off... well i dont like it never get im going to get a new phone. How dissapointing from samsung. Who agrees?
I bought Samsung galaxy j1 last year September 2016 from Bangladesh. After some days it started disturb. Like hot, setting disturb...etc...Today it shows google setting sign in...if it is running last night. Now it is showing android lost and also locked. Please help me as early as possible.
I bought one before and had an ink on screen problem,i never hit it anywhere and bought it from Samsung direct,well they fixed it....now I bought another on and less than 2months of safety and care,he same problem developed on it recently,I have taken it back to them and they are accusing me of opening it at a roadside mechanic just imagine,upon the fact I have 2years warranty?? Is the ink on screen a normal problem?? Plus why would they say tha kinda trash at Samsung Nigeria??
I've been using j1 for like a year... (2016-2017) and I'm still using it. The most annoying thing now is that the phone gets heated up pretty quick and the battery goes down from 100 to 0 in 1.5 hours if I use it.. In the next model there should be increased storage and software update..
