Quick Review of Samsung Galaxy J2 (2016)
The design on the first hand looks very old style and not at all attractive. The back panel is made of plastic and it is old removable type panel. The 5 inches screen is not bad with HD resolution. The CPU and GPU are very poor specifications. Cortex-A7 processors are actually extinct. They are very terrible to use now-a-days.
The 1.5GB RAM is just enough for basic uses. But not a good idea for multitasking. The internal storage is also very low with just 8GB. Half of which would be taken away for Android software. Cameras are average in performance. Finally, the removable type 2600mAh battery. This is a good level of battery for this device. We can expect a day of backup on causal use.
