Design and Display

The new Samsung Galaxy J6 looks fresh with an ideal screen-to-body ratio, thanks to its 18:5:9 aspect ratio ‘Infinity Display’. Even with a 5.6’’ large screen, the device is compact and lightweight. And you can hold the device with one hand easily.

The backside of this smartphone is made of high-quality polycarbonate (PC) for the premium look. There is also a fingerprint reader located at the rear, and speaker vent is on the right side. Overall, the smartphone looks simple yet stylish at the same time. The Samsung Galaxy J6 is available in gold, blue, black.

The Galaxy J6 device offers a 5.6-inch large High Definition Plus Super AMOLED ‘Infinity Display’ to their users. The screen-to-body ratio makes the device seem attractive. The display is really one of the best in this cost. The AMOLED panel makes everything look bright and the viewing angles are good. And you will not face any issue while using the device under direct sunlight.

Camera

The new Galaxy J6 includes a 13MP primary shooter with an aperture of f/1.9 along with an 8MP best quality Selfie camera with the same aperture size. There is an LED flash on both the sides. And with LED flash on either side, you will never feel dark while capturing selfies. The camera provides a range of options such as Night Mode, HDR, Panorama, Beauty, and Stickers. You can even opt for the Pro mode.

Night photography is not at its best. The device will also not be able to produce best results in complex lighting conditions. The front-facing camera will impress you. There is an LED flash active on the front, especially for low-light Selfies.

Performance

When it comes to performance, this is a great smartphone that will allow you to play even heavy games and complex smartphone apps usage. You may feel little heat-up, but it will not affect the performance of the device. The Galaxy J6 smartphone comprises of a 1.6GHz octa-core Exynos 7870 processor with Mali-T830 MP1 GPU. Although the specs are good for this cost, it is recommended to get the 4GB RAM model for better performance for an extended period of time.

Software

The Galaxy J6 by Samsung is running on Android 8.0 Oreo-based TouchWiz UI. The device is loaded with all the basic apps including Facebook. However, Samsung apps make it even more productive and appealing for most of the users.

The good thing is that you can uninstall system apps if they seem like a bloatware. Bixby feels to be integrated vigorously in the smartphone device and you will have the very little hint as to what to do with this.

Overall, J6 is a super-smooth mobile phone, where the TouchWiz provides a neat and awesome experience. Besides that, Samsung Pay Mini lets you perform digital payments convenient and a Knox-powered ‘Secure Folder’ for your store to all important files.

Battery

The Galaxy J6 is powered by a 3000mAh battery which will remain all day long even with complex usage. The brand has provided with many power saving modes to assist users if they happen to discharge in an emergency situation. It takes approximately 90 minutes to fully-charge the handset.

Our Verdict

Samsung may be one of the leading and top-rated companies to get a smartphone from. The Samsung J6 price is amazing, and you will love to opt for complete peace of mind. Although the J6 has the only 13MP of rear camera and entry-level chipset, but all in all it is a great budget device with Super AMOLED display, compact size, and solid build.
