Samsung Galaxy J1 (4G): User Review

by Nickson Kipyegon


I want to introduce you today one of the great products of Samsung. Actually, the company is among the oldest electronic industries in the world. They have provided a track record of quality products over the years. Currently, their products range from televisions, laptops, mobile phones among others. Samsung Galaxy J1 (4G) is among the latest smartphones unveiled by the company, was first launched in February, 2015. I abandoned my old Samsung Galaxy Duos and purchased the latest brand. I have trusted Samsung products and I like the features of their phones mainly because of their durability. As a student in college, this phone serves me better given its high internet speed, durability of its screen (can’t easily crack when it falls- compared to other fashions) and not forgetting its design mode. It is light and convenient to carry in my pocket; this is one thing that most young people like most. The price was fair enough especially when compared to its specifications and efficiency. The sensitivity of its touchscreen is admirable. Both the processor speed and its RAM make it a perfect tool that runs all applications without overheating which was common with my older fashion.

Battery Life and Charging

It has a quality battery life which takes not more than 2 hours to fully charge. Once charged fully, I use it for the whole day especially on the internet (I like using social media) before recharging. And on occasions where I am offline, it can take a couple of days which is a good feature for anyone who cannot easily access power. Unlike initially, where I used to carry another battery for back-up in case of low battery on a journey, this latest model has actually made my travel comfortable since it can sustain me a good while before I get accessed to power. It is a phone that is highly recommendable for travelers and those who need much of the browsing without being switched off suddenly due to battery getting low.

Design and its Performance

Its make is yet another amazing feature of the device. It is well designed to be comfortably handled with every one since it can fit even on small pockets. It has smoothly furnished corners; its screen is manageable with one hand and its ability to screenshot by just pressing the power and home key concurrently. To me, its weight and general design is far much worthy compared to other phones with same specifications described above yet are heavier and clumsy. samsung_galaxy_j1_4g_2017samsung image download2

Strength and Durability

Though it is not even six months in my hands, the little time I have had this phone is enough testimony. I have accidentally dropped it severally though on fair grounds but at least it has not cracked nor lost its sensitivity. On rainy occasions I find myself rushing to shelter with my phone held in my palms- gets a few drops of water but still has never affected its functionality. In a nut shell, Galaxy J1 (4G) smartphone is a real diamond rock. It is all-weather friendly and convenient with all manner of working conditions. You can have your own opinion but to me it is indeed a brand you can trust!

Overall Review

Generally, this mobile phone from Samsung, on one side, promises good features. With the budget price, it is commensurate to the specifications. In most cases, such specifications or even of less capacity may demand for more cash. As a college student it has made it easier for me revising for exams. I receive almost everything and keep my notes in the phone since it is easy to retrieve and use them even am out of classes and relaxed in a restaurant with a drink. In my opinion, Samsung phones are reliable brand to me, given its history dating way back in 1969 which started emerged as Samsung Electric Industries. The industry only needs to improve on the multi-tasking capacity and the camera resolution in order to make it a perfect figure in the market.
