Features, Performance, and Reviews for the Galaxy J2 Prime

Galaxy J2 Prime's size

The Galaxy J2 Prime is 2.8inches (72.1mm) wide, 5.7inches (144.8mm) tall, and 0.4inches (8.9mm) thick. I can just barely use it with one hand, so it may feel big to some people. In the case of the Galaxy J2 Prime, it weighs about 5.6oz (160g). The weight is such that it's hardly noticeable even when using one-handed. However, some people may find it tiring to use for long periods.

In giving an overall rating to the Galaxy J2 Prime, while it may be slightly difficult to hold, it shouldn't be much of a problem when considering its general strengths and weaknesses.

Galaxy J2 Prime's screen

The Galaxy J2 Prime has a 5 inch screen. The iPhone X has a big screen, which very likely won't ever trouble you. Just be aware that it's not a very good size for writing long blocks of text.

The screen quality of the Galaxy J2 Prime is such that images and videos can occasionally be somewhat blurry. For general usage however, it's largely not a problem.

The CPU performance of Galaxy J2 Prime

The processing power of the Galaxy J2 Prime is comparatively low at 1.4GHz×4(Quad core). You'll most likely notice its lack of power when running games or playing videos. However, you shouldn't have any problems making calls, browsing the internet or using apps like Twitter or Instagram.

The Galaxy J2 Prime has 1.5GB of RAM, so you shouldn't have any problems using apps that aren't resource intensive. However, when watching videos or playing games for a long time the amount of RAM may feel insufficient, and their could be instability, so you need to be careful.

My impression of the overall operation speed of the Galaxy J2 Prime is at about the mid- to low-end of smartphones. If you use it normally, you likely won't run into any problems, but at times you will notice what it lacks.

Galaxy J2 Prime's storage capacity

The Galaxy J2 Prime has 8GB of data storage. This is fine if you mainly use email or social media sites, but if you plan to take photos and videos or play games, you should buy an upgrade.

Since the Galaxy J2 Prime is compatible with SD cards, you'll be able to easily expand your storage capacity; you won't need to worry about how much internal space it has.

The camera function of Galaxy J2 Prime

The main camera of the Galaxy J2 Prime has a capacity of 8 MP pixels, and is adequate for normal use. But some users may feel dissatisfied with the picture quality.

The Galaxy J2 Prime comes with a 5 MP pixel camera, which is a standard level. It's perfectly fine for selfies, but may be not as satisfying if you wish to take photos of large numbers of people, or make printouts.

The battery performance of Galaxy J2 Prime

The Galaxy J2 Prime's battery capacity is 2600mAh, a standard level for these types of phones. Compared to other smartphones, the Galaxy J2 Prime has a standard battery life. It should not be a problem for normal use. However, if you spend a lot of time online or playing games, you may find the battery life a bit dissatisfying.

Overall assessment of Galaxy J2 Prime

The Galaxy J2 Prime is a relatively high-performance smartphone. If you plan to use it as your main smartphone, you may find it slightly inconvenient, but within tolerable limits.

The merits of Galaxy J2 Prime
