So overall,is this a good phone to go for or not?im looking to get a new phone,but there are so many on the market,it's become quite frustrating(inspite of using google).Are there any recomendations from the more experienced cell-users out there?a good medium range(and priced)phone.

my mom, 58 years old and gadget illiterate, bought this phone just this march. the retailer helped her setup the phone and made a new gmail account for her phone. the phone was used for a day, but my nephew locked up the phone and they brought it back to the retailer w/c they did a factory reset. but now it is asking for the gmail account w/c was setup. cust was able to remember her gmail but wasn't able to save/remember the password. i tried to recover email's password using the link the phone provided but it is very hard to recover the password because it was just made and the girl from the retailer who made the account refused to help. i called a samsung rep and the option he provided me is to go to a samsung service center w/c is not available in our area.
is going to a service center do us any good? are there an alternative way for this issue.
Yotz, 17 Mar 2016Which is better j1 2016 or j2? I have both, but i prefer the J1 fit better in hand and pocket, very fast and effective phone for an entry level (played 3d games easily).
R31ya, 15 Jan 2016it is a qHD(480p) not a QHD(1440p). Google is free.
R31ya, 15 Jan 2016it is a qHD(480p) not a QHD(1440p). qHD is 960x540. 800x480 is WVGA.
That black rim on the bezel of both the Galaxy (2016) & Nxt, is such a turn-off. Why spoil the design like this?!
vino41, 26 Jan 2016Samsung 3 years use, Chinese less than 3 months use.are you sure? is that a true opinion or just a troll one? i owned a jiayu s3 for almost a year now and it still performs well even its bat. been playing a lot of hd games (not coc). dh5, oc2, vainglory... all set to high gfx. you just need to know what chinese phone you'll going to buy. i saved a hundred $ compared to popular brands! so stfu!

Anonymous, 02 Mar 2016Hey i have samsung galaxy j1 2016 but there is a lag on it. I bought it awhile ago.yeah true..i got mine today and while playing coc it lags a bit..
but still the phone is good :D
As an ardent Samsung fan, this phone is a mediocre effort from them to capture the mid-low range market. Tested this for 2 weeks, courtesy of a friend who opens a mobile shop, and I must say there are much better choices for the price range atm. TouchWiz lags terribly after a few days of continuous usage, and the Exynos heats up whenever you do moderate-heavy browsing, news reading or playing games. All phones do heat up, but think hot-plate. I suggest either go for an older S4/S5 or give those China brands a shot. Peace !
