Обзор смартфона Samsung J1 Mini 2016 года (SM-J105H)

 

Самый дешевый смартфон от Samsung, который значительно дороже аналогичных по характеристикам устройств

Качество связи нормальное, микрофон, правда, один, поэтому в шумных условиях собеседник будет вас слышать плохо. Виброзвонок средний, обычный звонок выше среднего, хорошо различим.
