The Samsung Galaxy J2 Pro may not look premium, but it comes with some impressive specifications. The pros and cons of this handset are:

 

Pros

  • It retains the headphone jack and has expandable storage of about 256 GB.
  • It has a  5-inch Super AMOLED display with 960 x 540 resolution Erich provides impressive colour depth and fantastic contrast.
  • It comes with a decent 2,600 mAh battery which offers a whole day runtime with light to moderate use.
  • The software has amazing features like Dual Messaging and Private Folder to maintain the privacy of the user.
  • The 8MP rear camera is quite strong and provides accurate autofocus while capturing proper details. The selfie camera has dedicated flash to help in lowlight situations.

Cons

  • The design looks quite outdated. The phone is quite heavy and has thick bezels.
  • The Snapdragon 425 processor is quite weak and lags during multitasking.
  • It does not come with the newer USB Type-C port.
  • It does not have AI integration in camera, so there is no bokeh effect.

 

On the whole, this budget phone has all the essential features you’d look for in your average phone. Hence, if you are looking for a phone that works well and lasts throughout the day, then this is the phone to go for.
