Samsung Galaxy J1 (2016)

Samsung's Galaxy J1 is a budget Android smartphone aimed at anyone who needs to keep an eye on the price tag when purchasing a new phone.

The J1 has a small, fairly low-resolution screen measuring just 4.5 inches and 480 x 800 pixels, but it gets a boost from Super AMOLED technology that enhances colours and contrast. The phone is also quite light at 131g and packs in a decent battery life.


Design

  • Basic but practical with no fancy trimmings.
  • Bright AMOLED screen, though limited to a fairly low resolution.

Camera

  • 5MP camera allows for decent if unremarkable photos.
  • Handy camera shortcut makes it easier to capture fleeting shots.

Performance

  • Suitable for general email and web browsing tasks, but not a whole lot more.

Battery

  • Low-power hardware gives the 2,050mAh battery plenty of legs.
  • Ultra power saving mode offers even more battery life for times when recharging isn't an option.
