Samsung is bringing lots of great budget smartphones in Nepal. They launched new J Prime series few weeks back. Previous J1 models are one of the popular smartphones in the budget segment in Nepal and India. Original Galaxy J1 Nxt came few months ago and Samsung has again launched updated Nxt edition. The price of Samsung Galaxy J1 Nxt in Nepali market is Rs 8390.
It is a new generation phone with latest software and features. As the phone sits in starting budget range, the specs are good as expected. There are few improvements over its predecessor. In terms of hardware, we still have the many old Samsung phones for competition. Many companies are trying to compete for this segment because of higher density of consumers.
This new iteration holds a 4” TFT screen with a resolution of 480X800. Below the display, system is running with 1.2 GHz quad core processor and 1 GB RAM. We suggest our readers and all consumers to buy smartphone with minimum 1 GB RAM and 8 GB storage.
Galaxy J1 Nxt Prime features 1500 mAh battery and 8 GB internal memory. Users can install external SD card up-to 128 GB. This phone is running with new updated Touchwix UI on Android 6.0. It comes loaded with new and highly demanded features such as S Bike mode, Ultra Power and Data saving mode.
We really like the saver options in Samsung phones. We have been using them since they first came in Galaxy A, E series. They save huge amount of energy to length the battery life during emergency and travel. At the back of the phone, there is 5 MP camera with f/2.2 aperture which takes decent photos and 720p videos.
J1 Nxt Prime is a 2016 device with new software and updates. There are all the required basic functionalities and services. The front camera is just VGA resolution so it isn’t quite great. Users need to have a good 5 MP camera at front to take good selfies and have quality video chat.
All other things are good for this price considering quality of Samsung. We are really concerned about the battery. The 1500 mAh battery can only last you about 1 days with medium usage. Standby time with minimal use can be up to 2-3 days. We are happy about the rear 5 MP camera and its quality. If you are a new buyer, this phone can be a decent starting gadget.
