    While Samsung has always been a head-turner in the premium segment, the Korean giant didn’t have a strong play in the budget segment until the Galaxy J1. However, for a segment dominated by Xiaomi or Moto G series of devices, the Galaxy J1 didn’t deliver as much, and felt a bit too pricey for what it offered.

    Overall: Hi,nnI got this phone from Flipkart on Friday and here is my 3 days review.nnPros:n * Beautiful designn * Very handy, easy to handlen * Battery backup is greatn * Back camera is goodn * No heating issuesn nCons:n * If we are charging, it will not show any light or any notification whether it is charging or not. We need to on the screen and check whether it is charging or not. So every time we need to turn it on and see whether it is charging or not.n* Camera issue: Once you take the picture and then press the back button it is taking some time to come back to camera mode.n* If you turn on the flash and take pic with back camera it is taking some time to capture the picture. With out Flash it is taking very fast.n* Volume is very low. Not enough for a medium sized room.n* Ear phones are not good especially for me. nnnWill post my feedback after using it another 15 days.nnThanks
