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).
