Well, you certainly can not say that Samsung does not offer us many options when it comes to buying our next smartphone. In addition to the three phones in the ‘A’ Galaxy series, the Galaxy ‘J’ line also has a range of phones with different prices to meet a wide range of budgets. However, for every excellent phone in the series there is usually at least one that does not give the same impression. In this case, it’s the unfortunate Galaxy J1.It should be noted that the model tested here is the 2015 version of the Galaxy J1 instead of a new 2016 cell phone, but you can still buy the old J1 for about £ 95 without a SIM card. This is a pretty tempting prize for those who want a reputable brand without a great brand price, but after they’ve spent the J1 on our expert laboratories, there’s simply better equipment for the same amount of money.

Samsung Galaxy J1 details
The Galaxy J1 is Samsung’s challenge to reinvent itself in the entry-level segment. The influx of Chinese sellers has had a dramatic impact on Samsung’s sales in the budget segment, while Xiaomi is now the largest manufacturer in India that is battering the South Korean provider.
To counter this, Samsung has reoriented its offerings and now focuses on segments rather than separate devices. At the mid-level, we now have the Galaxy Galaxy E and a series, while the high-end hosts the Galaxy Note Galaxy and S-series. In the entry-level range, Samsung launched the Galaxy J series, the first being the Galaxy J1.
Although Samsung has done a great job of finding out what consumers want in all segments, it has not yet managed to bring it back into the budget category because the Galaxy J1 is once again a repeat of what the manufacturer did Years ago. behind. The device has a deceptive hardware in the form of a 4.3-inch screen with a resolution of 800 x 480, an unpublished binocular Cortex A7 Dual-Spreadtrum CPU core often 1.2 GHz, 512 MB of RAM, 4 GB of internal Memory, microSD card slot, 5MP on the back, 2MP front trigger and 1.850mAh battery. On the software side, the phone is ready to use with Android 4.4.4 KitKat.
Such material would have made the Galaxy J1 a good alternative in the budget segment last year, but the introduction of major devices such as the Redmi 1S and the new Moto E, as well as the latest Honor Holly and Bee mean the Galaxy J1 will be fine obsolete before it arrives on the shop shelves of the country. Available for the same price as the devices that offer much better material, we see no reason why I should get the Galaxy J1, unless it’s a loyal brand and does not want to buy someone else.
