Samsung Galaxy J2 Review: Price, Specs, Pros and Cons

Review of Samsung Galaxy J2 at a Glance:-

Samsung budget segment ‘J’ series Smartphone is one of popular series among people, in this sequence Samsung Galaxy J2 launched with features like 4.7 inches display, 5 MP camera, 4G support, 8 GB ROM 128 GB ext. 1 GB RAM and 2000 mAh battery. Here we will have Short review, Pros and Cons of Samsung Galaxy J2.
This handset also retained same traditional Samsung design with Chrome finishing around the edges. The volume rockers buttons located in left edge and power button on right, USB port in bottom and 3.5mm headphone jack on the top. The touch buttons below the display are not backlit.

4.7 inches display with 540 x 960 pixels and 234 ppi display density is quite low at this time when Full HD with more than 300 ppi is common in this range handset but thanks to AMOLED display which makes its screen vivid and quite better. Ambient light sensor not included so phone is not able to adjust brightness automatically.
In its heart Samsung’s own processor Exynos 3475; 1.3 GHz quad-core CPU is capable of running all the tasks fluently but you may feel some lag when phone is loaded with many apps, the phone is low budget so you cannot play all the heavy games.
 5 MP camera is not the best standard for this Resolution however it captures some pretty nice pictures while most of the pictures looks washed out, camera also has some pro features like Panorama, Night Mode, Beauty face and more. 2 MP front camera is just match our average standard.
2000 mAh battery is just average but its better with Ultra Power Saving mode which is an awesome feature for saving and increasing battery life.
