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..
All my whats-up messages and SMS's take my airtime and not data, way. Please assist
Annon, 19 Feb 2017I don't understand. I read the specs and it says it has a 4g storage but. My phone storage is ... moreThe system and application installed by Samsung use most of the 4Gb. There is 4Gb in the phone, but once you install some simple applications this is already used.
I don't understand. I read the specs and it says it has a 4g storage but. My phone storage is always full.
Can someone please help after I made or receive a call or sms my phone automaticly turn to mute, I must change it after every call and sms
Remember guys this is a $99 dollar phone from costco, don't expect it to run like a $200+ dollar phone, there's not enough ram on this to run it outside of the most basic functions and don't even think about adding apps
lolantana123, 19 Jan 2017you can retrieve data by yourself. There are programs to do that. For example My Dev... moreHATE IT! I can't update anything! Says there is not enough storage. I deleted all my photos, some apps, ex. Still won't update. I am looking for a new phone 😨
