Samsung Galaxy J6 arrives at a point when Samsung has to compete with the value-for-less-money phones pushed out consistently by Chinese manufacturers. Don’t get the whole gist wrong; Samsung is the number one brand with regards to top quality Android smartphones but their mid-range and budget section are in a huge competition with the Chinese folks.

So, the question that pops up in your mind might be: Will this phone really make the cut? Or is this just another low cost Samsung Galaxy smartphone without wits? All you need to know will be revealed as we step further.

Samsung Galaxy J6 Quick Review

Samsung Galaxy J6 makes it out with a polycarbonate unibody design that’s not so surprising. A metallic body covering would have taken the price tag upwards. You can bare me witness, the Samsung logo is completely taken off from the front, leaving the only appearance of the logo at the rear. Also at the rear, the fingerprint scanner, primary camera & LED flash are in attendance.

Media output is displayed on the 5.6 inches Super AMOLED screen of the smartphone. The quality of the media output gets determined by the 720 X 1480 pixels resolution and 296 PPI density. Even more, the AMOLED screen enjoys the Infinity Display presented by the 18.5:9 aspect ratio. The absence of the Samsung logo at the front contributes to this enormous aspect ratio as well as the 75.9% screen-to-body ratio.

Still in the frontal arena, a single 8MP camera beefed up with a LED flash executes the production of selfies. The rear, on the other hand, uses a 13MP sensor to shoot quality images and videos. Low light photography is taken care of due to the presence of the LED flash. Android Oreo OS in conjunction with the Samsung Experience UX9.0 makes you enjoy an interesting interface on the phone.

Sticking to the Exynos 7870 Octa SoC, the Galaxy J6 performs smoothly with minimal lags. Also, there’s the Mali-T830 GPU that makes graphics very much on the high side. In the base variant, 3GB RAM and 32GB internal storage are the mainstays of the memory compartment. 4GB RAM & 64GB ROM are found in the larger variant. Notwithstanding, the internal storage can be increased to 256GB through a dedicated MicroSD slot.
