Samsung Galaxy J1 Contract Deals

Last week the Samsung Galaxy S7 launched in South Africa and Phonefinder couldn’t wait to have the deals listed on the site. (read the Samsung Galaxy S7 article here)

The Galaxy S7 has risen the bar to what is expected in a smart phone to an all new high, and this is exciting because we now have something really special to expect in the Apple iPhone 7. Smart Phones have taken that extra step which was taken when the original iPhone was launched and left all other feature phones in the dust.

The Samsung Galaxy S7 is a bit new to Phonefinder for us to determine how well it will do, so in this article we will focus on the most popular Samsung smart phone which has been eaten up in the Phonefinder market place.

Without further ado, here is the most popular Samsung smart phone on Phonefinder – the Samsung Galaxy J1

The Samsung Galaxy J1 smartphone may be over a year old, but that is no indicator of its popularity. Originally launched in January 2015 the phone still boasts an array of really stunning features for an affordable smartphone, namely a 4.30-inch touchscreen display (with a resolution of 480 pixels by 800 pixels).

The cell phone is powered by 1.2GHz dual-core and it comes with 512MB of RAM. The phone may only come standard with 4GB of internal storage (not really enough for all those pictures which you will be taking) however as usual Samsung allows for the owner to expanded the memory by up to 128GB.

We know that all you want to know about is the camera, so here are the camera specifications: Rear primary camera (5-megapixel), selfie camera (2-megapixel).

The phone runs on Android 4.4 and it is dual sim (a greatly admired feature in South Africa).

The Galaxy J1 Ace is by far the most popular Samsung deal on Phonefinder.

The statistics (March 2016)

  • 44% of all chosen Samsung deals on Phonefinder were for the Samsung Galaxy J1 deals. The next closest match was for the Galaxy J1 Ace, the slightly less feature packed version of the Galaxy J1
  • 70% of all deals selected belong to Cell C (MTN 30%, Vodacom and Telkom Samsung Galaxy J1 deals did not feature on Phonefinder in March)
  • 68% are priced at R159pm

The Samsung Galaxy J1 is a greatly appreciated smart phone in South Africa, and thanks to affordable price plans being attached to this phone, many South African’s to make their first step into the smart phone world.
