In 2018, Samsung seems to have big plans to regain the market it lost to its Chinese competitors in recent years. It seems like just yesterday that Samsung released the Galaxy A8+ at a higher end of the market following which the company also released the Galaxy Tab A 7.0 in the budget range. Now, Samsung has released the Galaxy J2 4G edition, further increasing its offerings in the budget segment.
The Galaxy J2 4G is primarily a budget smartphone focused on providing consumers with a usable smartphone at a very affordable price. The smartphone features a 4.7-inch qHD Super AMOLED panel which makes the display very vivid. In our opinion, it is an excellent display for the price.
To go along with the great screen, the smartphone comes equipped with capable cameras as well. The rear camera has a 5MP f/2.2 sensor while the front camera has 2MP sensors. According to the company, the Galaxy J2 4G also has advanced camera features such as quick launch and ‘Palm Selfie’ mode that automatically clicks a self-timer photo when you show the camera lens the palm of your hands.
Under-the-hood the Galaxy J2 4G is powered by Exynos 3475 SOC which features 1.3 GHz Quad-Core processor, coupled with 1GB of RAM and 8GB of internal memory, which is user expandable up to 256GB. The device runs on Android 7.0 Nougat and comes embedded with an all-new ‘Smart Manager’ which the company claims looks after your smartphone’s operations and settings to ensure optimal performance.
The Galaxy J2 4G packs a 2000mAh battery, which should last you a day of use. Connectivity options for the device include Wi-Fi b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.1, GPS, GLONASS as well as FM-Radio. Speaking of the sensors, the device is equipped with an accelerometer and a proximity sensor which is acceptable at this price point.
