Great phone. Yes it has its quirks, but it has the
Right stuff. Typing long texts can be painful. Typing errors abound. No running away from that. Not the greatest memory. Go for an S8 if you have the dough. Otherwise the J2 is a rugged phone to get through the day.
very worst mobile ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,battry worst ,,,,,,,,,,,,,hanging to much ....no one application runs properly..............company fooled us.

after waiting 2 month got software update of just 3 mb on Samsung Galaxy J2.
Being used almost 2 years, i noticed two big problems 1st, get hang and automatically restart 2nd, battery problem, I don't think this mobile gonna buy anyone in 2018!
this phone didn't get any new Android version through software update.
and I am very unhappy with this.
I will not recommend anyone buying Samsung mobile phones in this price range.
can go with redmi or Nokia but don't go with Samsung as you will not get any new Android version update like me.
I bought this mobile with android version 5.1.1.
and after 2 year 8/9 month I am still with the same android version.
I borrowed this mobile thinking that it will gave a new Android update like the marshmallow or nougat or oreo go edition but it didn't gave any and will not give in future also.
eventually Samsung gave the last software update on may 2018.
after that giving update has been stooped.
probably Samsung has stopped giving software updates for this mobile.
I could have bought any mobile with same specifications like this mobile within Rs. 4000 to 5000 on the year 2015.
but chosen Samsung, thinking that I might get new Android update with Samsung and that's why I spend Rs. 8500 for this mobile.
but the very very sad part is that I never get any new Android update which I wanted.
and that's why i will not buy any Samsung android device in future.
rupam, 27 Jun 2018Software updates not available.Samsung probably give the last software update on may 2018.
and from then I don't think any new update will be provided to this phone.
this mobile is full OK for me except the battery.
while buying this phone i heard Samsung provide software update but on this one i never get.
the sadest part is i bought this phone with android 5.1.1.
and after 2 year and 9 month this phone is still on the same android version 5.1.1.
I never expected this from Samsung.
and I don't think any new update or security patch will be provided for this phone after may 2018.
I dont recomend this phone.its really bad .batrry problm.hang almost time. Nothing is gud.so far in using samsung phones but this phone sucks
Anonymous, 13 Jun 2018How we can record phone call in this phone ,I am unable to record phone call in this mobile .you need to download and install an app like "auto call recorder" from playstore.
thus you can record calls.
the internal voice recorder app is unable to record anything during a call.
How we can record phone call in this phone ,I am unable to record phone call in this mobile .
using this phone for 2 years and 9 month.
this phone costs Rs. 8500 at that time.
overall I felt no problem with the phone except the battery.
first 1.5 year I passed a whole day with single charge.
but now I need to give it charge twice a day.
will change the battery soon to check if problem solves or not.
I love to play games on mobile and so on this phone got the pressure to run heavy games.
I play asphalt 8, modern combat 5, gta san andreas, gangster last vegas on this mobile.
every games run very good except the asphalt 8, for asphalt 8 I need to adjust the graphics to low.
probably the battery problem happened with me for heavy gaming.
will sort out that soon or will buy a new one as the android version is going older on this phone.
camera is good, video playback quality is good and listening music, radio is also good.
quad core processors are also good, ram OK.
but the internal memory is too low to run heavy games.
as gta san andreas takes 2.5 gb of the internal leaving space of 1.65 gb only.
for this low memory I have to save the game and uninstall it to run another heavy game.
overall I will gave this phone 4 out of 5 stars.
budget friendly, Awesome display, slim and handy, descent camera, average battery, average performance, 1gb ram for regular usage apps, no heating issues, no hardware problem.
