For example, if you install AIDA64 system info and go to Sensors, does digital compass / magnetometer appear?
Battery life is a disaster, even if you don't use the phone, still the battery runs out in no time. I have to charge many times every day. Samsung promotes that you get 7 to 8 talk hours with J1 Mini Prime, but is not true. The Mini Prime is a waste of money because if the phone can't be use is not reliable, so why do you want it then?

I wish this size for phones wasn't dead. I would love instead of having our phones fight for who can be thinner or have less bezels having a phone that had say a Snapdragon 650, 1280x720, good camera, and a removable battery. Absolute dream phone for me right there. Hell, despite hating it I'd even settle for it having to have on screen buttons instead of physical ones. I just miss when our smartphones didn't dwarf our hands.
