Samsung Galaxy J1 Mini Prime vs iPhone 7 Plus: Which Is The Better Phone?
To some people, having one phone is not enough. Some people like to have two phones - one for both online and offline mobile apps, and one for strictly texting and calling or something like a backup phone. Are you one of these people? Then you might be interested in the Samsung Galaxy J1 Mini Prime.
But wait, before you think that the Galaxy J1 Mini Prime is "that" kind of phone, it's kinda not - in a way. Well, first thing, it is not your average backup phone and is, in fact, a great phone to have because it shares some of the features that the high-end phones have. But before we start the comparing, let's first talk about the news of Samsung's latest phone.
The Samsung Galaxy J1 Mini Prime
According to the reports, Samsung has just launched a new phone. On first glance, it resembles a lot like the Galaxy J1. About its price, the Samsung Galaxy J1 Mini Prime is available on Amazon for $89.99 and on eBay for $86.99. It is also reported that it can be used in T-Mobile, but only on 2G. With that being said, let's now compare it to the iPhone 7 Plus.
Galaxy J1 Mini Prime vs iPhone 7 Plus
Network. The networks of the Galaxy J1 Mini Prime are GSM and HSPA only. The networks for the iPhone 7 Plus are GSM, CDMA, HSPA, EVDO, and LTE. Well, it is two network options against four. This round goes to the iPhone 7 Plus.
Body. The body dimensions of the Galaxy J1 Mini Prime are 126.6 x 63.1 x 10.8 mm and body weight is 123g. As for the iPhone 7 Plus, body dimensions are 158.2 x 77.9 x 7.3 mm and body weight is 188 g. Well, if you've been reading my other articles, I personally like lightweight phones. However, in this case, the Galaxy J1 Mini Prime is just too small. I think I will make this round a tie.
Display. The display type of the Galaxy J1 Mini Prime is TFT capacitive touchscreen, 256K colors, display size is 4.0 inches, and display resolution is 480 x 800 pixels. On the other hand, the display type of the iPhone 7 Plus is LED-backlit IPS LCD, capacitive touchscreen, 16M colors, display size is 5.5 inches, and display resolution is 1080 x 1920. I like big screens, but in this case, I will compare them base on the display type. The iPhone 7 Plus wins this round.
Platform. The OS of the Galaxy J1 Mini Prime is Android OS, v6.0 (Marshmallow), the chipset is Spreadtrum SC9830, CPU is Quad-core 1.2 GHz Cortex-A7, and GPU is Mali-400MP2. While the OS of the iPhone 7 Plus is iOS 10.0.1, upgradable to iOS 10.1, the chipset is Apple A10 Fusion, CPU is Quad-core 2.23 GHz, and GPU is six-core graphics. I will give this round to the Galaxy J1 Mini Prime, because though its chipset, CPU and GPU and a far cry from the iPhone 7 Plus, it is amazing that it runs on Android Marshmallow. I wonder if you could change its OS with the latest Android 7.1 pre-loaded. That would be pretty cool.
Memory. The internal memory of the Galaxy J1 Mini Prime is 8 GB and 1 GB RAM, card slot memory is microSD, up to 256 GB. As for the iPhone 7 Plus, internal memory is 32/128/256 GB and 3 GB RAM, card slot memory is N/A. Whatever the size the phone is, I always fall head over heels for phones with high RAM. This round goes to the iPhone 7 Plus.
Camera. Rear camera of the Galaxy J1 Mini Prime is 5 MP and video is 720p@30fps. About its front camera, there is none. The iPhone 7 Plus' rear camera is a dual 12 MP camera, front camera is 7 MP, and video is 2160p@30fps, 1080p@30/60/120fps, 720p@240fps. Well, I guess taking selfies, pictures and shooting videos is not a strong feature of the Galaxy J1 Mini Prime.
Battery. The battery of the Galaxy J1 Mini Prime is a removable Li-Ion 1500 mAh battery. Talk time, standby time and music play is unknown. The iPhone 7 Plus' battery is a non-removable Li-Ion 2900 mAh battery (11.1 Wh). Talk time is up to 21 hours, standby time is up to 384 hours, and music play is up to 60 hours. Even if there is only a little information about the Galaxy J1 Mini Prime's battery, I will give this round to the iPhone 7 Plus.
Features. The Galaxy J1 Prime has only one sensory feature - the accelerometer. As for its other features, let's just say it has all the basic features it needs for Emails, MP3s, MP4s, photos, videos, etc. With the iPhone 7 Plus features, well, just the sensory features makes it a winner for this round.
The tally is Galaxy J1 Mini Prime with 1 win and the iPhone 7 Plus with 6 wins. To be honest, I think I picked the wrong phone to compare with the Galaxy J1 Mini Prime. I probably should have compared it with the Xiaomi Redmi 4a instead.
As for what I think about the Galaxy J1 Mini Prime, I think it's a good sub-phone. You know, a phone that you use strictly for texting and calling only or when your main phone is dead or something. Anyway, this is my failed comparison attempt between the Galaxy J1 Mini Prime and iPhone 7 Plus. Hope to see you guys in my next article.
