I remember a tft panel in the days of 2000 even before .... well at least it demonstrate that lollipop and marshmallow can run good on 1gb so why not flawless on 2gb or more.
hi guys, I'm back to report that the sales rep who tried to convince me that this is the way the camera is on the phone was wrong. turns out my brand new phone had a problem with the camera. booked the phone in at Samsung repair center where they replaced the camera. no more blurry pics. yes there is no auto focus but the pictures no longer look like total crap.
I suggest if you have problems with your new phone don't waste your time with sales reps who know nothing rather hear it from a technician.
Caller voice sound too low .iam increes mannually volume.still also sond very poor.without use loud speaker can't hear voice.how rectifie this problem.

The other are craving for 5.9", 2880 x 5120pixel if available, more core, more ram, more more more. If i COULD wish for tbis model it would be like you wish

Oliver, 04 Jun 2017Does this phone support Pokemon GO? I want to purchase it for my son.Not sure, but some heavy game run quite smooth according to our local review in youtube. But please limit the apps. You have ca. 2GB plus space only if all googke apps are updated
Dominic, 12 Jun 2017Does it support otg cableSadly no... 😦

Cosmo, 22 Jun 2017True...very true...the camera is very uglY Really? Show it to me. Have used this model since 2016 and has ca. 290 pics in me and all of them are more than decent. I did photo with Nikon F2 back in 1995. I'm not very new to photography

You still can snap photo with good clarity. If you really NEED to snap flower or document, please purchase snartphone with MANUAL MODE.
I have posted minimal 30 pics in my instagram using this very model.
Have this model since May 2016.
Camera is non focus but 5MP is adequate. I have some glorious moments in my Instagram using this phone.
Please NOTE: this camera WILL maintain the low iso even in low light and the shutter speed WILL drop to 1/8 sec. in my own cases, so ... DON'T MOVE. Maintain the distance from 40cm or use extra plus dioptrine lense to shoot nearer than that.
This model is surprisingly stable for any of my activity, include: web browsing with Firefox, fill in excell file using MS app tbough the screen size is eye sore and many office tasks i need to perform when computer is out of my reach.
Surprise to be able to depend on this minion phone.
I purchased the Samsung j1 mini prime and am so furious. what is the point of having a 5MP camera when there is no auto focus, nowhere does it say in the above spec that the phone has no auto focus.
in fact i had tried a lot of mobiles, samsung j1 mini prime the latest on i got was so efficient to me in size and capability to offer me all what i need,
my phone is locked problem. samsung j1.you r have solution. please sir
Hmm get this phone at the end of y2016
The phone is just for someone who needs basic features, most apps can run on it
So sad it does not have autofocus feature, which means that it could not take capture something close to it. Not for students who are going to take photos of tiny little sentences on books
Anyway it is cheap(most important f me)
i purchased the Samsung j1 mini prime and am so furious. what is the point of having a 5MP camera when there is no auto focus, nowhere does it say in the above spec that the phone has no auto focus. what a dud! my old 9300 blackberry with 2mp camera took clearer pics. very disappointing
