Small And Mighty

The Samsung Galaxy J2 is a small little entry-level smartphone, but don't let that lead you to believe that it's a very underwhelming smartphone. The Samsung Galaxy J2 packs a rather mighty quad-core processor that's clocked at 1.3 GHz in its tiny little form. The 1.3 GHz quad-core processor is powerful and allows for great enjoyment of watching high definition videos and also immersive mobile gaming.

A Perfectly Compact Display

In a world of many large smartphones, a compact display of only 4.7 inch feels incredibly special and unique. It's small enough that it fits easily into any pockets or bags without causing a big bulge or taking up a lot of space. The small display also looks exceptionally sharp when displaying your content.

Great Camera

The little Samsung J2 is also equipped with a very humble 5 Megapixel camera with an f/2.2 aperture. The larger aperture allows the 5 Megapixel camera to capture brighter high quality photograph with very little noise artifact throughout – even in low light conditions and rooms. On the front there is a 2 Megapixel camera for all the great selfies. It is also adequate for most video calls.

Great Slim Design

The Samsung Galaxy J2 comes in a very small compact design. It has very friendly rounded edges that fit comfortably in the palm of your hands. It's thinness also won't cause an unsightly bulge in your pockets. On the rear of the Galaxy J2 is a textured rear cover that feels unbelievably great to the touch.

The J2 also comes in three different colors: Gold, White, and Black.

Smart Manager Application

The Samsung Galaxy J2 smartphone also comes with the Smart Manager application. The Smart Manager allows the user to check battery information, storage status, memory status, as well as access security settings. The many different statuses allows the user to monitor their phone's well being and easily clear off any junk or unused applications that may reside in the smartphone.

Store More With Expandable Storage

The Samsung Galaxy J2 comes with 8 GB of internal storage. While that may be enough for most average users, others may find that it will be not enough with more than a few applications installed, photographs taken, and also music files. Fortunately, the Samsung Galaxy J2 comes with a micro SD card slot that can take up to a massive 128 GB micro SD card to expand the storage.
