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 !
what about data ,does it reduce more money when mobile internet is used?
Anonymous, 22 Feb 2016I have Samsung Galaxy J1 (2016), and man I tell you. I'm loving it, for such a reasonable pric... moreI'm highly inspired by your comment; i have plans of getting one, and really I'm encouraged
The longivity of Samsung device is good...the phones are not bad but the problem is you cannot install the files on the ad card and also cannot move the apps to ad card....it is disappointing for gamers mostly as the internal storage is very limited...installing all the apps on internal storage makes the phone slow too...they must solve this problem.

anonymous, 17 Feb 2016This phone is so damn slow.....it hangs wen u connect to the wifi and restarts wen the cpu is ... moreget your comment right, its not slow and it doesnt even heat up when connected to a wifi. your just a samsung basher
I tried it, it is a nice phone, but for a little more money you get J2, same but with bigger screen.
I have Samsung Galaxy J1 (2016), and man I tell you. I'm loving it, for such a reasonable price. I'd say it's worth the investment. Of course, if you're looking for a high end smartphones, this phone is definitely not your style. Nonetheless, given the Quad-core capability and its vividly-vibrant Super AMOLED display, I'd say, its way better than MOST of its competitors within its "PRICE" range bracket. It's pretty good with games, watching movies, and taking pictures as well.
