When Android launched as a mobile operating system back in 2008 as Google's answer to Apple's iOS platform, the first manufacturer to jump on board was HTC. It didn't take Samsung long to join the party though with the original Samsung Galaxy phone in 2009, a brand that has grown to become one of the most successful family of devices in the world.

Samsung's size as a consumer electronics company has allowed it to create incredibly powerful devices. Samsung's latest smartphones duo in the premium space are the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+. Given that last year's Galaxy S7 smartphone sat comfortably at the top of or best phones of 2016 list, and the Galaxy S7 Edge rested a few slots behind, the expectations for the Galaxy S8 are high.

If you're after a more flexible approach, you can also purchase the Samsung Galaxy S7 or S7 Edge outright and opt for a no-contract SIM plan.

Samsung sells a variety of handsets with the "Galaxy" name, but the best known are the premium S and Note series that attract high price points and come with the latest cutting-edge features.

The flagship Galaxy S devices are generally announced at Mobile World Congress early in the year, and make their way to store shelves a few weeks later. Samsung uses these devices to launch new technologies, such as updated cutting-edge processors, incredible cameras and intuitive software features like an always-on display or the Game Launcher that allows you to maximise your game time.

The Galaxy Note devices, meanwhile, tend to get a release date later in the year around September. The big difference, aside from the name, is the Note family comes with a bundled stylus for both device control and handwritten notes. Samsung also takes the opportunity to deliver new features in the note family, like retina scanning to unlock the device on the Galaxy Note 7.

Unfortunately, 2016's Galaxy Note 7 had a tendency to catch on fire, and after a recall Samsung wasn't able to fix the issue, so the Note 7 has been permanently discontinued. Whether we'll see the Note 8 or Note 9 in 2017 remains to be seen.

Regardless of the Note 7's problems, Samsung has a history of making exceptional smartphones and is easily the most successful Android manufacturer, competing with Apple's iPhone devices as the world's most popular.

      Hi Althea,

      Thanks for your comment.

      Upon checking, Samsung J1 Prime is not part of the Blue Tick Telstra phones for the bush. You may refer to this page for the list of Telstra Blue Tick phones.

      Regards,

      Hi Diane,

      You’ve come through to finder.com.au. I would recommend visiting Settings > Wireless & Networks > More and selecting Mobile networks. Then make sure Optus 4G is selected as the preferred network. If it is, try resetting your handset. If you are still experiencing issues with your mobile service, I would recommend contacting Dodo technical support.

      Thanks,
      Brodie

      Hi Alex,

      No provider in Australia offers the Samsung Galaxy J1 on a plan. However, you purchase the J1 on Optus Prepaid for $139.00 or the Galaxy J1 Ace for $99 on Vodafone Prepaid.

      Thanks,
      Brodie
