Samsung Galaxy J2 (2017): a range of entry each time more basic

Samsung Galaxy J2 2017

Samsung introduces new mobile each time and this time will touch to renew its range of input. If last year we saw the Samsung Galaxy J2, now the new Samsung Galaxy J2 (2017), a device with the most basic components to get the price reduced. Even so, we are dealing with a device with LTE connectivity, perhaps what is most needed today in order to enjoy a mobile.

Let’s see some of its features, but we already anticipate that they may be a little disappointing. In fact, if we compare it with the previous model, we will see that we have even gone back, although we understand that all of it is to reduce more if it is worth its price.

Galaxy J2 2017 Screen

The Galaxy J2 (2017) brings us a display of 4.7-inch with qHD resolution but technology SuperAMOLED that guarantees vivid colors and a good contrast. The objective of the manufacturer is that even though the mobile phone is the most basic thing is always to offer a good level of components.

the design of The Galaxy J2 is important, too, but we did not find any element of premium. Only a body of lightweight plastic and with a back part that has been worked over to give a rugged feel.

To move the device will have a 1GB RAM that we feel insufficient more if we compare it with the J2 (2016) and a processor Exynos of four cores. The camera will be of 5-megapixel camera for the back and 2-megapixel on the front.

Samsung advertises that this model comes with Smart Manager, a software that cleans up and optimizes the 2000mAh of battery. Will have to see, because in the official specs it does not mark the version and we’re pretty sure that the Android version will be old.
