Other Pros and Cons summary of SAMSUNG GALAXY J1 (2016)

  • Do not expect to much at SAMSUNG GALAXY J1 (2016) either main camera or front camera, because it have only 5 megapixel with standard hardware, it mean we can get better images when we take photo at good light conditions, but the camera weakness will happen at low light or indoor photography. However, we can use flash light to help tak pictures at low light conditions but the light flash only can help about not more then 2 meters away from camera.
  • Drawback of SAMSUNG GALAXY J1 (2016) is only use Android Lollipop for factory default operating system, we think Samsung will not give any Android Marshmallow firmware upgrade for SAMSUNG GALAXY J1 (2016) product.
  • SAMSUNG GALAXY J1 (2016) internal memory have standard storage at 8 GB and 1 GB RAM, but we get advantages at external memory which can add maximum 128 GB for save photo pictures, video or music mp3 files.
  • SAMSUNG GALAXY J1 (2016) disadvantages at 4.5 inches LCD screen is because the low resolutions is not good for playing HD movie, but when we use it for view Youtube video, we will have options as 320p or lower. But Super AMOLED LCD type is one other goodness from this phone to make color display more better then TFT screen.
