The Samsung Galaxy J1 carries a light footprint and ideal size that delivers performance you expect from a pre-paid smartphone.

Overview

Samsung's Galaxy J1 brings you into the world of smartphones with a stripped-down model offering plenty of functionality. It features a cutting-edge 4.5" Super AMOLED touchscreen with superb RGB colour reproduction to view your photos, videos, and games. Surf the web and enjoy all the latest social media apps using its convenient built-in Wi-Fi.

More Information

  • 4.5-inch Super AMOLED touchscreen with 480 x 800 pixel resolution
  • 8GB of built-in memory, expandable up to 128GB
  • 1.3GHz quad core processor combined with 1GB of RAM
  • 5MP rear-facing camera and 2MP selfie cam
  • Preloaded with Android operating system

Whether you've been inching towards joining the smartphone revolution or looking to scale back to a more affordable model, the Samsung Galaxy J1 is right for you.

While other smartphones are growing in size to the point of bulky and cumbersome, the J1 is compact with a candy bar shape that fits nicely in your pocket or handbag. Its slim 8.9mm profile is accentuated by smooth rounded edges that feels natural in your grip.

Hold the phone with ease as you admire its right-to-the-edge Super AMOLED touchscreen. From here you can surf the web, view photos, and watch videos, all through the display's vivid and true-to-life RGB colour reproduction and superb contrast ratio.

And no smartphone experience is complete without the occasional selfie. The J1 makes this addictive activity even easier with Palm Selfie, which lets you snap a selfie by a simple one-handed gesture. No more fumbling for the shutter button.

Now imagine a day of snapping selfies, reading websites, and accessing your apps as you navigate to your destinations. You're going to need considerable battery juice. This phone comes with an enhanced battery for longer usage time and an ultra-power saving mode to limit consumption to when you truly need your power bar in the green.

It looks nice enough

It can be difficult find the settings you want to configure. Has anyone tried answering a phone call but can't and it goes to voicemail? While ringing, the screen only shows a green and red phone sign with arrows in motion pointing to choose whether to answer or hang up but it doesn't respond to pressing the green phone sign to answer it. I can't find settings explicit to this problem, only simple settings like using the side buttons etc for the phone feature. I have to find time to phone Samsung about it because it's obviously a manufacturer's software issue.

Pretty Good Budget Phone

This phone is great maxing out at 480p on Youtube. Thats great because I wont use my WIFI up. This phone is good for kids. Buy this phone and let them use it. When their ready for a Phone Number then just pop in the Nano Sim Card.

Very impressed!

This phone exceeded my expectations! I've had it for 2 weeks and I have no complaints so far. I find it is just the perfect size for me. I didn't want something that was too large as I wanted to be able to put it in my pocket. I find the screen a great size too.

2 out of 3 Worked

We bought 3 of these phones and the first one we tried did not work due to technical issues with the phone itself. The Samsung and Telus people told us to return the phone and that they have seen this issue before but it wasn't frequent enough to issue a recall on the J1. The other two phones work great.

Solid as a rock Phone

Second day I had it I dropped it 15 feet off a loading dock onto pavement. No cracked screen, no scratches, just a small dent in the corner.

Great Phone

This phone is perfect when you need something reliable and inexpensive. We have bought many for employee phones and have very little problems. I will continue to buy these until they are discontinued.

FROM CA ONTARIO TO CA ONTARIO US OF A.

I HAVE AN OPINION THIS IS A WONDERFUL CELLULAR PHONE. A LOT OF PEOPLE IN PROBABILITY, OR IN MEASUREMENT OF NUMERICAL PEOPLE WILL BE USING THIS PHONE. THE COST IS LESS ON SALE, BUT I WON'T SAY HOW MUCH HERE, TO PUT IT IN YOUR CART FIRST. THE COST IS LESS THAN APPLE INC PHONES BY A GREAT DEAL AND LESS THAN ANDROID PHONES BY LENOVO OR BLACKBERRY. THE COST OF PERFORMANCE IS LOWER FOR THE QUAD CORE (FOUR / 4) FOR BEING A FOUR OUT OF FIVE STARS BY SAMSUNG S1 (6.0 MARSHMALLOW ANDROID) SYSTEMS O/S.
