Samsung Galaxy J6+ – A Short Review

Samsung smartphones have always brought something new and unique with them and the Samsung Galaxy J6+ is no exception.

A company thrives only when it has lived up to the expectations of its customers and always kept them wanting more. And Samsung is one such company that has been around for over 70 years now. So, there are heavy odds against you wanting to switch to another brand once you have used a Samsung smartphone. Also, Samsung is widely known for being an inclusive brand. What we mean by inclusivity here is that it has something for everyone. Smartphones in all price ranges.

The Samsung J series, however, launched in 2015 is an entry-level segment. When you compare it to the other series from Samsung like the M series or A series you will see that it is rather an old one and thus the features incorporated in these smartphones are pretty average. The difference is visible in the price range as well.

At this point, we are sure you must be wondering what does J stands for in the Samsung Galaxy J6+ or the series. Well, it’s nothing fancy but J stands for ‘Joy’. We say it’s quite smart of the brand to come with a name that is so affordable and sends a positive message across. However, the J series from Samsung has been discontinued now which means we won’t be seeing any new launches in this series.

Now, without waiting any longer let us give you a concise idea of how the Samsung Galaxy J6+ performs.

Design And Build

Samsung has paid special attention to the looks and design of the mobile phone. And it is quite evident in the premium finish with the glossy back panel and notch-free screen. The front is protected with a Dragontrail glass shield while the rear panel is made up of polycarbonate which means it can perfectly survive a drop or two.

The in-hand feel is great with the body being taller than usual. However, that is not a problem at all since it is lightweight as well. Moreover, the fingerprint sensor is mounted on the power button making it quite accessible. Thus, all in all, the phone has been smartly designed keeping the customer’s needs in mind.

1. Display

In terms of the display, the Samsung Galaxy J6+ is quite similar to Galaxy J6. As for the screen size, you get a 6- inch HD+ Infinity display with HD+ resolution. Being priced at about Rs 14,000 you don’t get an AMOLED screen but the display is good enough that you can enjoy watching movies, TV series, music videos, and everything else.

2. Performance

Now let us move to discuss the most important aspect i.e., its performance. To get an idea about that you need to know about the operating system and process. In this case, the Samsung Galaxy J6+ comes with Android 8.1 Oreo OS, and the processor on this one is the Qualcomm MSM8917 Snapdragon 425 Processor.

When you open the simplest of apps like messages, YouTube, music or call you are going to enjoy the experience fully. However, when you want to move quickly from one of the apps to another say Instagram from WhatsApp, there is a slight lag. Also, the functioning of heavier gaming apps like PUBG is a nightmare with this device. If you don’t want your smartphone to give you a hard time it’s better you do with gaming apps like Subway Surfer, Temple Run, etc.

3. Camera

After the performance and software, if there is one thing you should consider the most it is the camera. This is because this is the social media era and you would want to be consistent with posting pictures on your social media accounts. As for the Samsung Galaxy J6+, it has got a dual rear camera with 13 MP and 5 MP. On the front, you get a 5 MP camera with LED flash.

As for the camera performance, you don’t get a lot of modes to click a picture but there is a Pro mode that can do a few changes here and there. With insufficient light,  you get good enough pictures where colors are depicted quite accurately. However, you won’t find the low light performance to be that attractive.

4. Battery

One of the most impressive things about the Samsung Galaxy J6+ is the fact that it comes with a 3300 mAh battery. There is no fast charging but once fully charged the battery will easily last you for the entire day. That is when you are engaged in light or moderate usage. Be prepared to spare about 2 hours and 15 minutes to charge the battery fully.

These were all the aspects you would need to look at before you are ready to spend Rs 14,000 on the Samsung Galaxy J6+. You would have guessed that it’s now time for our verdict. However, before we do that let’s have a quick look at the pros and cons of this device.

PROSCONS
Bright display  The processor isn’t the best one here
Premium finish  No fast charging
Good in-hand feel  Low light camera performance is disappointing.
Sufficient battery backup   

Final Verdict

The Samsung Galaxy J6+ is not a newbie in the market and has been in the market for quite some time now. if the brand name and quality is your priority at the moment you can go for this one. But as mentioned above the performance is not the best on this one.

So, if you are someone who is not dependent on their mobile phone for all the tasks and you have a PC or laptop where you do the major work and want to with an affordable long-lasting smartphone this is the one for you. look no further and go get the Samsung Galaxy J6+ from your nearest store since there are very few chances that you will find it on an online store.
