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.

great budget phone

All the reviews say this pone is crap, well since the S3 I am not convinced that Samsung makes bad phones anymore,so i bought the J1 from a different carrier and the only thing bad about this phone is you can't move apps to the micro sd card that i installed,other than that this phone is amazing for this price point,you are not gonna find a smartphone that is this good at this price.The phone auto updated to Android 6.0 Marshmallow as soon as i powered it on,the screen resolution is better than the Grand Prime and the Core and the ui is smooth fast and snappy..overall i give this fantastic phone 4 out of 5 stars,i too one star off because not able to move apps is an option that should have been on this phone.Very Highly Recommend this phone if you don't want to get stuck in a contract or pay an insane amount for a good phone.WELL DONE SAMSUNG ..I will never buy Apple phones ever again..
