this phone can working perfectly if you:
1. root this phone.
2. uninstall bloatware.
3. install xposed.
4. install greenify to hibernate apps when not using phone. no more battery drain problem.
The main problem is the phone was slow. And then when i turn-on the data its not showing. And its too slow even if i use high service data and sane to wifi so slow. Why.?
The battery suddenly dies at 80% without warning. Sometimes its at 60%, who knows. Guarranty gave me a brand new one since it was barely a month old. Same problem. Changed batteries. Same problem.
I was told it was because the battery wasnt calibrated well and i needed to root it. Same. Problem.
Even if I had been super careful charging it and having the bare minimum apps, it was always the battery. In the end, I simply got tired and got another phone.
It works apps very well for a cheap phone, and it doesnt even lag, and the size was perfect for my pocket. Frankly, I would have keep it for years if it wasnt for the battery issues.
Bulldozer, 18 Apr 2018I know this issue from non-genuine replacement batteries. How to fix that..because my phone have a same problem
Not expected to much from this phone.Bad camera.Perfomance at low level but nice to play games somehow.Storage is insufficient but pairing with good SD card that A1 rated managed to keep perfomance reliable.Some bugs found on battery life is still annoying.Manage to pass it by using good quality usb cable and low rated Amp charger that below 1.0A. Tough body case when dropping this phone more than 12 times in first 6 months.Non expert says it lags often when changing apps between session.But it will hold without crashing.TFT screen look dull but OK when Developer Options mode gpu screen composition turn on. Changing network 3g 4g little difficult when unstable network occurs but website manage my frequency keep stable all the time.
karim, 03 Apr 2018me too but i dont nkow what is the solution This happens with mine too. When I make OR receive a call after a few seconds I get a message ''double tap to continue'' but the call has dropped out by the time I realise this has happened. Not sure what to do about it......fine for texting Rubbish for making a call!!!!!
Not as good as expected. I have to adress to Samsung, that the 900 MHz HSPA(+) is not working. In my Huawei E5330 it works fine. It's a software-issue on the Model SM-J106B, never been recognized by the company. The camera has no autofocus. No Exynos-Chipset, slow, big bezels, unsufficient RAM, cheap screen, no USB-OTG. Otherwise works stable without issues. Has an exchangable battery. But what does the replacable battery help, if the phone has features that low? It's a wrong decision! A low price giveaway phone. If you want something better, you have to pay better. That's the message from Samsung with this piece to its customers!
GReuter, 28 Mar 2018I want to use a magnetic compass in my J1. I can download an app, but when I want to run it I ... moreThis phone does not have magnetic sensor hardware so no compass app will work.
Just received March 1, 2018 Security Update. Nothing much has changed.
this phone is GARBAGE! too small, not enough memory, dropped calls, no volume, etc. etc. etc. keep looking, move along, nothing to see here.
this phone is really good like an 4" it small and speed
but there are some problems you must read them all after buying this phone:
1- only 8gb of memory and after update 2.3 gb is available to download apps and games its very low storage
2-1500mah battery isn't really nice to keep your device active. my phone sometime battery stop at15% i think thats couse to battery status isn't work completely
3-you cant change themes like other samsung phones
4-the phone is getting hot when you play games (not the battery ) i think that the CPU and GPU and RAM (1gb) maybe
