FAQS: Samsung Galaxy J2 (2016)

?The Galaxy J2 (2016) is the successor to the Galaxy J2, one of the more popular phones here at It is quite similar to the Galaxy J3 (2016), another low-end smartphone from Samsung. So, what’s new and noteworthy in this particular set? Let’s discuss.

Body and Display

As expected of an entry-level smartphone, the Galaxy J2 (2016) comes in a plastic body. It reminds us of the Galaxy S3 to S5 phones which featured similar bodies. They were durable, but didn’t quite feel as good in the hand. For the J2 (2016), however, Samsung has updated the back’s design to include horizontal lines across the Samsung logo. It results in a unique-looking phone.
The front is dominated by a 5” 720p HD Super AMOLED display. It constantly surprises us here at just how good displays are getting these days. One would get barely legible displays for entry-level phones just a few years ago; now you can get HD displays! Amazing how fast technology is progressing.


The Galaxy J2 (2016) includes an 8 megapixel camera on the back with an LED flash. You can record Full HD video on it. You can take 5 megapixel photos using the selfie camera on the front. Neither camera will win awards, certainly. However, you can’t really complain given its budget price. This is the best you’ll get in this budget.

Hardware and Software

A new-sounding Spreadtrum Samsung quad-core chip running at 1.5GHz leads the reins in Galaxy J2 (2016). It comes with a software-based “Turbo Speed Technology” feature which stops apps running in the background in order to help run the foreground app faster, when required. Samsung says this offer results in apps launching up to 40% faster than phones with as much as double the RAM. The J2 (2016) comes with 1.5GB of RAM, by the way. A 2600mAh battery rounds up the hardware.
Android 6.0 Marshmallow comes built-in with, of course, Samsung’s TouchWiz UI on top. Samsung has included a couple of special features just for this phone. The lens of the rear camera is surrounded by an LED panel which you can customize to light up in particular color, based on different kinds of notifications. For example, you can set it to be green for priority notifications, red for general notifications, some other color when a specific contact calls you etc. The S Bike Mode from the Galaxy J3 also makes an appearance.
The Galaxy J2 (2016) is officially priced around Rs. 15,000 at launch, but of course you will find the lowest prices here on PriceOye.
