The Samsung Galaxy J6 brings with it a sturdy design, good display for consuming content and average everyday performance. However, its camera is lacklustre and if you are looking for a performance workhorse, you have better options to choose from.

Samsung Galaxy J6 Review: A Budget Galaxy A6 (2018)
Source: Unbox English
In all honesty, it’s hard to recommend the Galaxy J6, considering that it is almost similar to the more expensive Galaxy A6 (2018). While it may be a few thousand pesos cheaper, you get a plastic build, downgraded cameras, and several hardware compromises on the Galaxy J6.

Source: India Today English
If you're someone who's into the hardware side of things, and I know there will be many since Xiaomi and Asus have spoiled us all, the Galaxy J6 won't be as appealing. It would, in fact, seem frustrating because even though the Galaxy J6 aspires to be modern, it's lacking even the basic resources like an ambient light sensor, gyroscope and LED light. It's not as powerful as the competition too.

However, this phone is a much-needed refresh in Samsung's budget series, and won't get lost in the crowd. Some of its advantages are its Super AMOLED Infinity Display, sleek and lightweight body, and reliable battery life. Overall, it does have some appeal, and is also not likely to suffer from the same availability issues as most its competitors.

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