Reviews for the Samsung Galaxy J4 2018

78% Samsung Galaxy J4 (2018) Review: The free smartphone you will want to own
Source: KL Gadget Guy English Archive.org version
For RM559, the Galaxy J4 is a very affordable entry-level smartphone that offers a beautiful display, an workable main camera and reliable battery life. However, Samsung is definitely challenged by the Galaxy J4’s selling price and position, devices like the Xiaomi Redmi 5 offers much better performance and build quality for around the same price, making it a much compelling choice than when it comes to value. Nonetheless, I highly recommend the Galaxy J4 if you are not spending more than RM600 on a phone, and best of all you could get it free on U Mobile’s Unlimited Hero Postpaid P99 and Maxis NeXT starter postpaid plan.

5.50":

It is a very small display format for smartphones. You should by no means be mis-sighted and you will generally see very little on the screen and only have a small resolution available. In return, the device should be very small and handy.

78%: This rating is not earth-shattering. This rating must actually be seen as average, since there are about as many devices with worse ratings as better ones. A purchase recommendation can only be seen with a lot of goodwill, unless it is about websites that generally rate strictly.
