Overview Samsung Galaxy J2 (2017)

Android version and market relevance

In the short description of the new smartphone Samsung Galaxy J2 (2017) we point out the key characteristics for each smartphone. Firstly, it is an actuality in the market. This model was announced by the company Samsung in October 2017. Secondly, this concept of adequacy in the market at the moment. We determine this according to the software version on which the smartphone is running and updating. So, “out of the box” Samsung Galaxy J2 (2017) works on Android 7.0 Nougat and has not received until now no updates to the more recent version of the software. In this case, we advise you to avoid buying models that do not receive software updates. Look at the others smartphones of 2017.

Of the features that not all Android smartphones have today, we separately single out support for two SIM cards. So Samsung Galaxy J2 (2017) is a dual-smartphone, so you can combine in one device just two phones. This, of course, is convenient and makes you look more closely at this model.

Screen, body and battery

By the size of the Samsung Galaxy J2 (2017) screen, we were assigned to a segment ergonomic models with a convenient body size. See for yourself, here is Super AMOLED-screen with diagonal 4.7″.

Dimensions of the screen dictate to us and the size of the case. At Samsung Galaxy J2 (2017) the case turned out very thick — 8.4 mm. Today you can easily choose and buy a new smartphone with a very thin case. The battery in this model has a capacity 2 000 mAh.

Main camera and selfie camera

Smartphone Samsung Galaxy J2 (2017) got ordinary main camera on 5 MP and the frontcamera on 2 MP. If you judge only by the number of megapixels, then the main camera is very weak. But the frontcamera not very good, we have in our catalog real selfie smartphones.

Processor and Internal Memory

The smartphone performance is affected by a lot of factors, and even more so on the android-smartphone, where the developer of the Android operating system and the device manufacturer are absolutely different companies and each develops with its strategy in the market. As a result, in the smartphone you get a hodgepodge: it′s like a “clean” Android, but with a shell from the manufacturer; as though only the necessary applications, but also many unnecessary from the manufacturer. Very often Android-installed apps by default, which you do not even use, are still running and working, they occupy part of the RAM and processor time of your smartphone. This slows the work of other applications and the battery charge is wasted.

So, in Samsung Galaxy J2 (2017) is installed 4-core processor on the chipset Exynos 3475 Quad. As for RAM, the memory module is used here 1 GB.

You can store your photos, videos, music and applications both on the built-in smartphone memory, and on memory cards microSD up to 256 GB. You are only available 8 GB built-in memory, so you need to be more careful about what you store on the device.

Price for Samsung Galaxy J2 (2017): buy or not to buy?

So this is Samsung Galaxy J2 (2017) after the official announcement. This novelty fell into the segment of cheap of smartphones.

Buy Samsung Galaxy J2 (2017) you can after the beginning of official sales, which start in  October 2017. And now the price from the manufacturer is known — it′s $120 without taxes and fees. The price-to-feature ratio of this smartphone is not bad, because there is a good medium-sized screen, but a weak main camera, and the frontcamera is so-so.
