The Samsung Galaxy J1 features rather interesting display properties. The Galaxy J1 boasts of a 4.3-inch TFT capacitive display with a resolution of 480 x 800 pixels.
This particularly stands out as it is exactly the same display specifications as those found on the Samsung Galaxy S2. The notable difference between the Galaxy J1 display and that of the Galaxy S2 is that the latter is an Amoled display.
Frame Dimensions: 129 x 68.2 x 8.9 mm
Weight: 122 g
The Samsung Galaxy J1 features the generic Samsung Budget device design. You get a polycarbonate frame and some well rounded corners.
Samsung really tried hard to give the device a premium feel, something that the company often overlooked on previous budget smartphones. The Smartphone is affordable, but fortunately doesn’t look cheap.
Operating System: Android OS, v4.4.4 (KitKat)
CPU: Dual-core 1.2 GHz Cortex-A7
RAM: 512 MB
Internal Memory: 4GB
Micro SD: MicroSD, up to 128 GB
The Samsung Galaxy J1 boasts a technical profile that is sub-par to what you will get on other Smartphones in the same price range.
In an age where budget devices feature Quad core CPUs, the Galaxy J1 has a Dual Core CPU. Another weak point is the 512 MB RAM. That’s definitely doesn’t look pretty on the device and generally Samsung could have done better.
However, it’s awesome that the device runs Android OS, v4.4.4 out of the box.
Rear Camera: 5 MP
Secondary Camera: 2 MP
LED Flash: Yes
The camera profile (especially the LED flash) of the Samsung Galaxy J1 is decent and strikes a bargain for that price. It’s not the best that you can get in the market, but is the best you can get on a Samsung budget device.
Battery and Extras
Battery Capacity: Li-Ion 1850 mAh
An 1850 mAh battery is okay for a budget Smartphone.
The Samsung Galaxy J1 is the first from the Galaxy J1 series, a range of budget Smartphones. Samsung has been facing some serious competition in the entry-level segment in most of its key markets due to the active entry of low-cost Smartphone vendors.
The Samsung Galaxy J1 is a fine choice for buyers out for a decent budget device with a great design, a smooth camera profile, and awesome battery stamina.
