Rated 5 out of 5 by from Its all good. Its just the right size. The battery life is long. Calls are clear. No drops. I like changing the size of the fonts,especially in text messages. No problems searching the internet, can get on Facebook when I want.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Battery life a real disaster. Battery life is a disaster, even if you don't use the phone, still the battery runs out in no time. I have to charge many times every day. Samsung promotes that you get 7 to 8 talk hours with J1 Mini Prime, but is not true. The Mini Prime is a waste of money because if the phone can't be use is not reliable, so why do you want it then?
