One of the latest additions, to the Samsung line of smartphones, is the Samsung Galaxy J6. This mobile phone, out of the box, runs Android 8.0 Oreo. It supports dual sim cards, both are Nano Sim. The phone was released in May 2018, weighs 154 grams and has a thickness of 8.2mm. You get a metallic body (aluminum). See Also: Samsung Galaxy Phone Prices in Kenya.
Here, we’ll look at the Samsung Galaxy J6 Price in Kenya, specifications and review.
The Samsung Galaxy J6, comes with a 5.6 inch display. This has the “new” screen aspect ratio, 18:9. Which means you get to enjoy more screen real estate, in small form factor. You also get a resolution of 720 x 1480 pixels. This ensures that your screen has high color reproduction with maximum details at the price range.
The super Amoled display is bright in direct sunlight and has true color reproduction. It is capacitive and supports multi touch.
What I particularly like about the display, is the large size. This can enable you to enjoy app usage and consume media. In previous years, a screen with a size of 5.2 inches meant you had to have large hands to use it comfortable. However, that has changed because of the reduced bezel sizes in the Samsung Galaxy J6.

The performance of the Galaxy J6, is one of the best at the price point. You get an octa core processor, which is clocked at a speed of 1.6Ghz. This ensures that your phone can run apps faster than before.
For multi tasking, this Samsung mobile phone has 3GB of RAM. You can therefore, run multiple apps at the same time. This, is without crashes, lags or app relaunches.
Speaking of graphic intensive apps and games, there is the Mali GPU. With that in the handset, you get higher frame rates and smooth transitions.
The efficient Android 8.0 Oreo Operating system also ensures that you get good performance.
When it comes to storage capacity, the J6 has 32GB. If you are an average user, you will find this suitable for your needs. However, if you take many photos, videos and have several large apps installed, you might want to increase the phone’s capacity using a memory card. The Galaxy J6 supports micro SD card expansion, up to 256GB.
When it comes to the cameras of the mobile phone, at the back, you get 13 megapixels. To help you take quality images, you get features such as face detection, autofocus, touch to focus and HDR support. In addition to that, this Samsung phone also features an LED Flash at the back. This can help you take better images in low light conditions.
At the front, the selfie camera is 8 megapixels. Similarly, this is also impressive.
One of the most important features in a mobile phone, is the battery; its performance, life, durability, talk time, standby time and screen on time. The Samsung Galaxy J6 performs really well in all these sectors.
The J6 comes with a battery capacity of 3000mAh. This can last a full day without requiring recharging, as long as you use it moderately.
Connectivity options include 4G LTE, 3G, microUSB 2.0, Bluetooth and Wifi.
Samsung Galaxy J6 Price in Kenya
The price of the Samsung Galaxy J6 is around KSh 19,000 in Kenya. Is this amount justified? In my opinion, even if the device cost around 25k, the price is worth it. One of the features you’ll fall in love with straight away, is the build quality. Samsung has perfected the art of wrapping around the aluminum on the display. Other features that stand out, include; performance, design, screen quality, battery capacity and camera quality. Therefore, I can easily recommend buying this mobile phone in Kenya.
