Galaxy J series is a great budget series kickstarted by Samsung Galaxy J1. Samsung Galaxy J1 is a super-budget smartphone with very few good characteristics for today’s standards. It comes with an Android 4.4.4 (KitKat) operating system, which isn’t upgradable. As you know, this operating system is now outdated, but a few years back it was good. Dual-core 1.2 GHz Cortex-A7 is a CPU located in this phone, well… it’s outdated also and will not provide that great performance. Throw in 512 MB of RAM here and lackluster Mali-400 GPU and you’ll see that Samsung Galaxy J1 doesn’t live up to its expectations.

It’s important to mention that this phone costs over $100, which is really overpriced. The display here a 4.3″ TFT display with 480×800 resolution, so it isn’t even an HD display. Internal memory is a small 4 GB- not enough even a few years back. Samsung Galaxy J1 is an overpriced smartphone, that doesn’t live up to its expectations.

    A not so great budget solution

    This phone values 100$… really? I don't think Galaxy J1 is worth that much. It has a poor 480×800 screen and it's small. Plus there is an Android 4.4.4 which is SEVERELY outdated. I don't like it at all!
