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

I want to use a magnetic compass in my J1. I can download an app, but when I want to run it I get the error message "No Magnetic Sensor". I the download a magnetic sensor app from Play Store; still the compass does not work. What am I doing wrong?

My Jimini is OK. However, the USB is either faulty of does not support Flash drives (FAT32 etc). Can anyone confirm that their USB works okay for additional storage apart from the device and SD card. Also..........regarding the blurry photo's. This is more than likely one of (or a combination of) the following reasons. 1. Dirty/Greasy lens. 2. Low light levels. If the light level is bright sunshine, the auto-aperture of the camera is only open a short time but captures enough light to create a good photo. In low light (indoors or before sunrise/after sunset) the auto-aperture stays open longer until it receives enough light. Any movement by the operator will blur the image. This true for any camera that doesn't have low light settings or flash etc. It doesn't win any style awards, but neither will I !
The phone is super, the camera is very good, no remarks, a phone with these indicators for this money is more than good
Battery suddenly drops to 0% even if you had 80%.
It literally turns off WITHOUT warning.
Its not even a month old too and the battery is brand new.
Plus the only fat app I use is whatsapp.
The phone's camera doesn't have autofocus! Whenever I take a photo of a paper, it looks really blurry.

j1 mini prime user, 24 Jan 2018My phone just shuts off while using around 50% Battery. Unable to turn on until it gets charge... moreyou have to charge the phone properly..if it turns off so sudden, and doesn't turn on, it only means that ur battery is empty or drained and that you didn't charge the phone to the fullest..using the phone while charging affects the battery power..it gets fully charge so fast, but drains so sudden..so you just have to charge it properly like turning it of or not using the phone while charging..i hope this helps
My phone just shuts off while using around 50% Battery. Unable to turn on until it gets charged on an outlet/ power source. Does anyone else have this issue?
After only 6-7 months after launch (Marshmallow version), this phone received an update which made it painfully slow and reduced the (already poor) battery life.
If I don't have Ultra Power Saving on, it drains to about 50% in one night, with everything turned off including screen.
Also the ringer volume is very low and I miss a lot of calls because of that.
At this price point, there are better options. Will never buy Samsung again.
My wife has this phone. When she is using the phone it keeps dropping out after a few minutes. Any ideas. Thankyou
That J1 mini is the biggest cra phone in existant . one year of trouble all the way Samsung should be sued . That srceen lock is absolute rubbish
