The previous Samsung Galaxy J1 was a very decent entry-level device. For little more than 100 Euros (~$109), you got a compact smartphone with good core features. The current model on the other hand is much more expensive at an RRP of 159 Euros (~$174), but it only offers a bit more memory and a slightly bigger display at a first look. However, Samsung now also equips the smallest device from the J-series with a Super AMOLED screen. The screen size is 4.5-inches, so the Galaxy J1 is still one of the more compact devices. Samsung also doubled the memory equipment, because this time we get 1 GB RAM and 8 GB internal storage.The current price of the Galaxy J1 is around 130-140 Euros (~$142 - ~$153), so the entry-level device has a lot of rivals. This includes, for example, the LG K7, Honor 4X and the Microsoft Lumia 650. Another interesting comparison is with other Samsung devices, because you can already get the old Galaxy J5 for this price, which offers more features. Or should you get a slightly more expensive and modern smartphone like the Samsung Galaxy J3 or Honor 5C?
