Every year the world stands still in front of screens, watching a presentation of another smartphone, the Samsung line of S. So the admiration and applause go to the flagships and budget options are restricted on the sidelines.
💎 Packaging equipment
Set Galaxy J6 Plus does not differ from the line And or other smartphones J. in Addition to the phone, get a warranty card with manual, standard clip slots in a separate bag, a headset with 3.5 mm Jack, USB cable and adapter.
Cover, protective film for the screen or memory card - no.
The smartphone is packaged in blue packaging, while the default is white. On the back end - General information. Assembly - Vietnam.
The smartphone is available in three colors. And although my color is closer to blue like in the pictures and in reality, according to the documents it is gray. And on pages the Internet-shops the shade looks different.
Red, black, grey
The case is solid, so the lid is impossible to withdraw, and remove the battery. The top face of the blank headphone Jack slid down to the microphone and charging Jack micro-USB. Did not like that around the connectors, there is no border, so some of them are at risk to form chips and scrapes. Protect from moisture, of course not.
On the left are buttons for volume controls and slots for sim-cards format nano and a memory card. Buttons, elastic, working without problems.
To the right is the massive power button. Also elastic, with no distinctive click, located below, than usually. Therefore, for quick creation of screenshots should practice.
The front - facing camera and flash. The eye in the frame, no "bangs". Located behind the main camera. They are not recessed, so I would not risk to put the phone on a hard surface for fear of scratching. The back is made of plastic. Looks stylish like the picture is behind glass, but fingerprints and dirt collects in a moment.
The circuit is made of glossy plastic and metal. Expense smartphone looks elegant. And if the materials are a bit too easy, then they immediately slip in your hands.
Weight - 178 grams, size is 76.9 x 161.4 x 7.9 mm
Accustomed to the Super Amoled, I was surprised that Samsung put in J6 Plus TFT display, deprived in comparison with his younger brother - the Galaxy J6.
But let IPS praise more, the screen looks decent. Juicy colors, excellent color rendition. Viewing angles are average, the pixels can not see. Broken about the pixel not according to the standard verification Samsung.
Diagonal - 6.01, resolution - 1480x720
The first couple photos done with automatic screen brightness, second - maximum, camera mode is automatic.
Scratch on screen not appeared. But the smartphone from the first day in case the owner, so a chance to spoil the glass is not provided. And fingerprints it collects is excellent! The light sensor operates at the highest level. In bright sunlight the screen immediately gets brighter gradually gone out with moderate coverage.
The aspect ratio is custom, so in some games the edges are black. But so they merge with part of the smartphone and not striking.
Camera three. Start with basic that is used often. More precisely, with the main going on
13 MP with autofocus and flash, no optical stabilization.
Focus on the level, to obtain detailed images in good light - no problem.
But take pictures in the dark - confusion. On old Samsung S3 in mode with flash, the lamp burned constantly. But in J6 + light illuminates when you click on the screen to focus and immediately shuts down.
Let's be realistic. Who is going to play with blurring the background for more than one day? Here's something! But a review should test the feature again.
Front camera is not ecstasy, as claims. A selfie I am indifferent, and for video calls in Viber permission with the head missing. It is designed for
8 MP with flash, no autofocus and optical image stabilization
Without focus, detail and mediocre to get a photo the camera will not work. Compare with a similar shot with the main camera.
A few words about shooting video. Without stabilization, the picture jumps, the autofocus is occasionally naughty, but the sound is recorded properly. The colors also jump - the picture becomes darker, if you start recording video, after taking a photo.
But, if white, at least, it is not evident. But the viewing and editing of the video - simple. You can rewind to the right moment with a couple of clicks what is already there in the next version of the system.
💎 Photo processing
For professional processing of the functions is not enough. But if you need to apply a filter, crop a photo or create a collage, it is feasible to do without third party apps. And, as I understood from some of the reviews, not everyone knows about such possibilities on Samsung smartphones.
For editing, I prefer Snapseed, but the native editor is convenient to rotate the picture if in the process my hand slipped and the subject lies obliquely.
Complaints not detected. Interlocutor can hear perfectly well, the sound crisp without noise. The smartphone loses the connection for no reason, need to remove the sim card - did not arise.
4G turns on quickly, speed on the level. Wi-Fi looking for fast, connecting is no problem. And at this moment a message about the connection error that requires re - entry of the password is not seen.
Immediately mention the presence of NFC. But my attention function is not received.
The average battery capacity for a diagonal of the screen. At medium screen brightness, enabled Wi-Fi and watching Youtube for about two hours a day the battery lasts for two days.
When talking about the calls, correspondence, Viber and other stuff, that will be enough for three days. With no load the battery discharges slowly. Charged the smartphone in the evening and in the morning all the same 100% without power saving mode.
Charging from 11% to 19% without activity will require as much as 15 minutes. And after 2 hours the level had risen to 73 %. Compare Samsung Galaxy A6 Plus charging with the native adapter in 15 minutes at 11%, and in the last experiment, the increase amounted to 8 %.
Once a speaker is located on the side face, it is not muted in your bag or pocket. The volume is above average. Miss a call on the maximum hard, with an average volume actually, when viewing movies of wheezing and hissing is not noted. When you enable speakerphone disadvantages not see.
And talk about the headset cause depression. Scolded her again, scold again. Fine messy wiring, solid button, speaker, plastic "ears", trying to slip out during movement. Not neat in the slightest, a decent Samsung, and awkward something that was obsolete ten years ago.
I did not expect from the budget line of wireless headphones, but with the aforementioned Galaxy S3 Duos I received the nicest vacuum the headset, convenient and practical. And now take a step back, wondering how to unclog the holes in the plastic surface while hiding wear and storage. Toothbrush? Toothpick? I have to think about it in 2019?
The shutter button Dolby Atmos, which improves the sound in the headphones. The sound of average quality.
💎 Indthe indicators
The owners of older Samsung hard to accept that the new model is devoid of indicators. Missed a call? Don't know until you take the smartphone in hand. The battery is charged 100% or not? Pick up the phone, unlock the screen and see how many there charge.
Yes, Always on Display need unlock not, J6 here Plus except for models, which provides such a function. Why not, after all, the front of the room?
Graphic keys and password will not surprise anyone, it is available on all smartphones. The fingerprint scanner is more interesting. It includes, but is not on a separate button on the back or on the screen, and is integrated into the power button on the side.
With such localization, the unlock you need to take a smartphone in hand, otherwise tightly to rest my finger does not work. Scanner medium speed unlock high, but ten taps will be one or two blanks. From A6 Plus more stable.
The facial recognition technology is present, but the method for an Amateur, but no problem, I said no. I only wish that the camera reacted a little quickly.
But the process of binding the imprint process dreary. And if you abandon the way, next time you need to start all over again.
Preinstalled version is Android Oreo. And I love this system! Bright, with nice icons, no "lag" and the rapid discharge of the battery. Intuitive settings menu allows you to instantly find the desired section.
The only negative - the absence of a characteristic of the icon when wired headphones are connected. Because upgrade to Android Pie not plan, although the new software is available and a notification constantly POPs up.
Also see again, that the Samsung Galaxy J6 Plus is not provided for Always on Display. The technology is not new, the particular monetary investment is not required, but it is not. And I appreciated the feature because it allows you to unlock your smartphone by double tap on the screen, without buttons. You can try third-party apps, but if everything is so simple, why not put the dear program.
Download a "heavy" game was not in the plans. And for simple puzzles, Mahjong and "Fruit ninja" CPU power enough. The smartphone does not hang during load, and does not seek to close programs that are running earlier. During the game, warm, but not critical.
Processor and GPU - Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM8917 425 + Adreno 308RAM - 3GB internal memory - 32 GB
Processor and GPU - Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM8917 425 + Adreno 308
RAM - 3GB internal memory - 32 GB
Problems can begin, if you ignore the optimization. Go to "Tinctures", choose "device" and run the program. It cleans the cache, checks for viruses, thereby supporting the operation of the system.
💎 Built-in apps
All the standard preinstalled Google apps - Chrome, Gmail, Youtube and others. Work smoothly as usual. There are three Office applications - Word, Excel, Powerpoint. On the smartphone they are not needed, except to use Word for reading text documents. But once I tried to go, the program demanded the confirmation via a phone number and I closed it with a clear conscience.
No special "chip" for the model is not provided. Of the social networks installed Facebook, occupying 300 MB of memory and updated at its discretion. And cache it is growing by leaps and bounds. But Messenger for communication should be put separately.
Highlight the advantages of Samsung Galaxy J6 Plus:
The disadvantages include:
With all the cons do not forget that the line of Samsung Galaxy J belongs to the budget. And the balance "price - quality" met on the level. The smartphone is not performance and incredible screen, but has a decent camera and great battery life.
Samsung Galaxy J6 Plus suitable for those who need a smartphone for chatting, watching videos and searching online. Its performance is more than enough for fast and comfortable work.
I put "good" and would recommend!
