    Great phone for a cheap price

    |
    Posted .

    I bought this phone because I was locked into a Verizon contract and needed a phone to temporarily replace the phone I was contracted into. I'm no phone expert and have not had a ton of phone experience (only had the iphone 4 and LG Lucid) but this phone is still a good quality for such a cheap price. When I first got it, it would have some problems freezing but it has gotten better now. Camera quality isn't amazing but it's usable. The battery life is pretty good, I'm not on my phone 24/7 but when I am it still lasts a pretty long time. This phone has survived a fall in the toilet and still works perfectly

    Good value for the money

    Posted .

    I've been through a few phones over the last year, and this one is at the top of my list so far. I'm not fond of the lack of buttons on this model, and I still miss the old slider phones, but overall, it can handle a lot of different apps at once and seems to be pretty durable. The only problem is, whenever you have an alarm or an incoming text/call, any program you're currently using will crash. Actually, the program will freeze for a couple of seconds, and then you'll get the communication request, and then you'll have to close whatever you were doing and re-launch it. However, this is a pretty cheap phone. And it runs on Verizon's network. So it's a good bet for the cost. Just don't expect anything stellar.

    So far so good

    Just bought this for a 13yr old. This phone is stylish and "cool" for a teenager. It is almost identical to the Galaxy S family of phones. The only drawback is the inability to locate a case for it. Maybe they should sell these prepaid models with a basic case...especially when you cannot get one in a store. Just my thoughts...

    Great phone for my daughter

    |
    Posted .

    I purchased this as a first smart phone for my daughter before she went away on a retreat (first time away from home). I wanted her to be able to take pictures, contact me via phone, text, email so this was perfect. I also purchased this particular phone because I wanted her to have a trial run with a prepay without the committment of a contract. I am very surprised at how nice this phone is as I am a bit of an iPhone snob. The only slight down side is Best Buy did not have any phone covers that would fit this style but luckily one of the employees let me know exactly where to go to get one. Overall great decision if you are not wanting to commit to a cell phone contract. Oh, I almost forgot the plan of $45 is for 3GB if you do Autopay (only 1GB without). I like the fact that I can cancel it at anytime so I am not bound to it like a contract. I have the app for Verizon on my iPhone so I have complete access to billing, incoming/outgoing, calls/texts, etc., which is a nice feature.

    Bought this for my wife to replace Note 2. After 3 weeks of ownership she says she loves it and other than the size difference would have no idea that she was on a cheaper, less powerful phone! While it is a little expensive (100.00) for a prepaid it is worth the cash.

    Good phone but little memory

    |
    Posted .

    I purchased this as an upgrade to my previous cellphone, which was a no-frills flip phone. This one is much better, but the 8 Gigs of memory is quickly filled since only 4 Gigs are actually available. I did purchase an SD card to expand the memory, but many of the apps cannot be ported over to the SD card. Music and video can, however, so it's quite useful in that way. Overall, I'm very pleased with this as a good basic smartphone.

    still trying to learn the navigation of the feautres on this phone. Being a busy person leaves little time to attend all of the Samsung lessons for these smart phones- I wish Samsung would write a users manual.to be kept for refernce in the use of the phones. We older folks really need a lot of help.

    I was looking for a replacement mp3 player. This replaced it and also had the features of a mini tablet. I use it as an mp3 player/tablet w/o activating the phone feature as I have an old flip phone that is good enough for my purposes. I also got one for my grandson for the same reasons. Excellent bang for the buck. Just have to be around wifi for non-downloaded content.

    At 6 Months - still works well with no issues

    Posted .

    Let' face it, prepaid phones just don't seem to be as good as the contract phones and I can truly speak from my own experience here. I bought this when I had another Motorola fail in a very short time - yet out of the Verizon warranty period. While this was an "emergency replacement" phone, actually it's been pretty good overall. Call quality and performance is excellent. WiFi and 4G connectivity have been trouble free. The screen is nice, not the best, but better than the similar priced Motorolas by a long shot.. and I keep the brightness lowered to extend battery life. The music player works reasonably well with decent fidelity through several headphones I have used. Overall performance is responsive, but for phones I am not a "power user" and keep the apps down... yet the memory is enough at this point for the apps I use. The camera is respectable - most important is that auto focus actually DOES work well. I do a lot of photography and have both a DSLR and Point and shoot camera, but in a pinch this does the job. Note this does have a flash and a basic selfie / conference camera that is good enough and that's it. Only shortcoming vs. other phones I've had. Battery life c an be quirky and I haven't figured out why. I have found that cleaning the contacts on the battery and phone does help. Overall battery life is quite good - then out of the blue it becomes a power hog. Not sure why, and not holding this against the phone. I would like to see auto display dimming, a nice feature often found at the price point and lacking on this phone. However at least it does have a mutli-color alert LED to let you know you've got mail / messages / missed a call and charge status at a glance.

    Easy Phone To Use. Love Samsung Products!

    Posted .

    After four years with my old trac-fone I was ready for an upgrade to a smart phone. I chose the Samsung Galaxy J1 4G LTE because I am familiar with Samsung as I own a tablet made by them. I have not been disappointed. I have had a few hiccups along the way but I am sure they were operator errors.

    Full Featured Smartphone at a great price!

    I was a long time user of the Blackberry and really liked its keyboard, but was also used to the screen based keyboard of my IPod Touch and that helped with switching to the Samsung Galaxy J1. I am so pleased with the features and functionality of this phone. It does exactly what I need it to do, when I need it to do it. I would recommend it to anyone. When my friends tell me they paid $600 for their IPhone 6, I just laugh. Samsung is killing it. I will continue to use their phones based on my experience with this model.

    Good functional phone for the price

    We had 3 phones get broken, lost or had manufacture glitch so I wanted a backup phone to use on my Verizon account while we figured out replacements. This phone does just as good as my galaxy 5 for what i use it for. The price for unlocked phones can be quite expensive. I'm very satisfied with the J3, so much I'm going to buy one for each of us after contracts end!

    Good first smart phone-lacks some functionality

    |
    Posted .

    New product no on-line reviews available prior to purchase. Disappointed to learn Best Buy does not carry covers or protective screen overlays for this model. Have returned several times to check on this. Also searched Samsung website. Functions pretty much as expected but calendar function is very limited - cannot get an alert/reminder for a meeting other than via e-mail. ( have tried several approaches). Good instruction manual but need to download and print it for full feature explanation.

    Samsung quality without a contract!

    |
    Posted .

    Definetly the way to go! We are in the process of switching from Verizon to Consumer Cellular, and my wife needed to replace her phone with about a year left on her contract. She has always preferred Samsung, and got this phone for a lot less $$ than the advertised names that Verizon/ Sprint uses. Just as good of a phone, for $99, instead of $5-600 they want for the other phones. A+++++++

    Good hassle-free no-contract phone

    Posted .

    I got this phone as a backup for an elderly parent who has an older flip phone and doesn't text, and has been known to hang up the landline phone only halfway. This is a great way to get around those issues - the phone can't ever be "off the hook" and you only pay for the actual time you talk on it! Like most Samsung phones it's very easy to use, has excellent features - if you want a low-cost, no contract Smartphone that can handle basic functions like email, etc., this is a good deal.

    This is a good phone for the money. Good camera. Plenty of memory. Lots of useful features. The team at Best Buy is the greatest. They help transfer contacts, pictures, etc. and were very professional, knowledgeable and helpful.

    I purchased this phone until I was able to get my replacement phone. It was great and you would never had known that it was a much cheaper phone. Because it is an no contract phone, you cant get insurance coverage.
