What the Critics Are Saying...


Digit

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.

- Sameer Mitha, Digit
Notebookcheck

The Samsung Galaxy J6 (2018) is a good entry-level smartphone, but do not rush out to buy it; last year’s Galaxy J5 (2017) offers more features at half the cost.

- Manuel Masiero, Notebookcheck
Gadgetbyte

In a nutshell, the Samsung Galaxy J6 is a decent choice. It has got a good design, trendy 18:9 AMOLED display, surprisingly good performance, and excellent battery life.

- Gadgetbyte
BGR

Overall, the Galaxy J6 brings the much-needed refresh to the J-series with features like an Infinity Display, super AMOLED screen, Dolby Atmos Audio, Samsung Pay Mini, and Chat Over Video feature. The well optimized Android Oreo OS and surprisingly good battery life are other things that go in favor...

- Ritesh Bendre, BGR
Fone Arena

Buy Samsung Galaxy J6 only if you are a casual user, brand consious and doesn’t care about camera, sensors and regular software updates.
