Description

There's nothing really impressive about the Samsung Galaxy J1 (2016). Like the Galaxy J1 from 2015, this is an entry-level handset. It's got a 4.5-inch Super AMOLED display with 480 x 800 pixels, only 1 GB of RAM, and 8 GB of internal memory (fortunately, there's also microSD card support). Powered by a quad-core Exynos 3475 processor clocked at 1.3 GHz, the J1 (2016) further features LTE connectivity, a 5 MP rear camera, 2 MP front-facing camera, and a 2050 mAh battery. The device runs Android Lollipop, and has three color variants (white, black, and gold).

Display

  • Display size:
    • 4.5 inches
  • Resolution:
    • 480 x 800 pixels
  • Pixel density:

    Pixel density - The pixel density of a display represents the number of pixels over an area of one inch. It’s measured in “pixels per inch”, or ppi. The higher the number, the more detailed and good-looking the display is.

    • 207 ppi
  • Technology:

    Technology - There are two main screen technologies currently used in phones and tablets: LCD and AMOLED. The former usually features a light source and liquid crystals, while the latter is based on organic light-emitting diodes. Newer LCD variations like IPS-LCD and Super-LCD allow for very accurate color reproduction and very wide viewing angles, where no significant image quality loss is observed. Current AMOLED screens differ in such a way that they can exhibit much more saturated colors (sometimes too much) and incredibly high contrast levels, which is due to black color being completely black in AMOLED displays.
