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
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.

This display is quite big for a smartphone but frequently used for smartphones.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

Only few smartphones are more lightweight than this.


Samsung: The Samsung Group is composed of numerous international businesses, all united under the Samsung brand in South Korea. The meaning of the Korean word Samsung is "tristar" or "three stars". The Samsung brand is one of the most important brands of South Korea. Samsung is an international notebook manufacturer of medium size according market shares and reviews.

In 2015 and 2016, Samsung had a market share of around 24-25% in the global smartphone market and was undisputed market leader. In the laptop sector, Samsung is on the 8th place in the global manufacturer rankings from 2014-2016 with 1.7-2.7%.

 

In 2016 Samsung slipped into a crisis due to exploding smartphone batteries and a failed recall action.


78%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
