Samsung Galaxy J2 2016 Mobile Phone Review


Samsung's Turbo Speed Technology (TST) works well to boost phone interface speed on Galaxy J2 2016, but can it live with 8GB of storage?

• Light weight ; • Smooth multitasking ; • Amazing Super AMOLED display ; • Good battery backup

• Low internal storage ; • No auto-brightness sensor ; • No NFC

Apparently, it may seem easy to assume that designing an algorithm is easier than adding a gig of RAM, but the hardware crunch extends further. True that more Gigabytes and Gigahertz don’t make for a better smartphone, but they do have a role to play...

Samsung Galaxy J2 J200M


Several months ago buying a cellphone which incorporated a AMOLED SCREEN would have cost several Benjamis more. This phone is a great value at this price point. It was shipped by Newegg well boxed. Bought two. Great value....Highly recommended.

WOW ! The SUPER AMOLED SCREEN is AMAZING ! Much easier to read in daylight. Vibrant video playback ! Shipped with latest Android Lolipop OS. 4.7" Size easier to hold in hand, and place in pocket. Accepts Micro SD card additional storage card to 128g....

The instructions in the box gave no indication of where or how to install micro SD card. When the back cover is opened there is no second slot available for the SD, which is what you would typically find. After research on GOOGLE, I discovered that the...

I always wanted a lollipop.


Its hard to find an updated 4.7" size cellphone these days ... they have mostly gone to bigger screen sizes. I find the 4.7" model most portable and easy to carry... and don't weigh me down. Samsung quality, Android Hi-Tec.. Highly Recommended.
