It looks like Samsung doesn’t want people to forget it during this festive season. They have released two phones until now within just a few days. One is the Galaxy A7 which is up for pre-order and the next is the Samsung Galaxy J6 Plus. There are 2 variants of the J6 Plus available. The 3GB/32GB variant costs Rs. 26,990 while the 4GB/64GB variant costs Rs. 31,790. Are these phones worth your money? Let’s find out.
In terms of design, J6 has Xiaomi Mi A2, it’s closest rival beat. The glass sandwich design gives the J6 Plus a shiny look and a premium feel that the Mi A2 can’t deliver. The screen is a different story. The j6+ has a 6.0 inches 18:9 aspect ratio HD+ screen instead of the Full HD+ found on the Mi A2. But, Samsung’s displays offer good contrast and punchy colors even if the panels have a low resolution. So, we don’t know if it would be a deal breaker for most.
On the inside, J6+ is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 425 (28 nm) which is just so weak for its price. This is the same chipset that phones that cost 15K use. So, seeing it here just makes me sad. The Mi A2, on the other hand, has the latest, powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 chipset inside. So, if you want to do some intensive multitasking or play even small games, don’t buy the J6+. However, for normal tasks like calling and YouTube, J6+ will work just fine.

Now, after all this, you might be thinking, “Where’s the fingerprint sensor?” It’s inside the screen. No, I’m kidding. It’s on the side, embedded in the power button. It unlocks the phone fast and keeps the back of the phone clean.
So, that’s about it. The J6+ is a good-looking device for the price. But it is a serious let-down in terms of performance. If it were me, I would look at the Xiaomi Mi A2, or even the Huawei Nova 3i and the Huawei Y9 2019 if I had to spend around 30-35K on a phone.
