The phone does not enable SD card to be formatted as internal storage. It's basically useless - can't install the apps you want since half of the internal storage is already eaten up by the operating system. Most app downloaded cannot be transferred to the SD card that's only formatted as a portable storage. Such a waste of money.

When you insert the SD Card, it automatically prompts you to change the location.
The phone is totally useless. Bought it for my 10 year old and she can't do anything on it because of lack of memory. Absolutely hopeless, total waste of money.
not enough space!!!!!!!
this phone didnt even last me one year n it stopped charging
i dont recommend it
Not user friendly. External memory cannot be put as a default. Need ro manually transfer the files from internal to external everytime. Not recomended.
The worst phone ever made unable to update apps unable to store photos, at times unable to open images sent from whatsapp as there is not enough space on internal storage Such a shame for a phone

1) I disabled apps that I don't need. I get weather and news updates from social media. Office/Polaris takes space as well, I uninstalled mine since I can open my documents in my notebook.
2) I only have the apps/programs that I use. Facebook, Messenger, Chrome, Gmail and Instagram for apps. And Calculator, Messages, Phone, Camera, Gallery, Calendar, Notes for programs. Other programs and apps that those are disabled.
3) I do a regular clean up from the Device Maintenance settings (I do that twice or thrice a month, maybe?) and I clear cache not only in Chrome but in other apps as well (which I do at least once a month).
Samsung J2 has really poor memory, so if you bought it thinking that you can use it to keep your favorite apps (like a fitness tracker and astrology updates) and games, I recommend that you start saving up for another one.
Bought this as an upgrade for my old Samsung J1 phone. I'm already using this for a year now, here's my review/opinion on this phone:
Samsung J2 has a good camera for its price. However, it's limited memory is a con. If you're looking for a camera phone that can send and receive calls, you can use for basic social media and browse the net while you're on a budget, get this one.
But if you love your apps and games, look for another phone. I only have the basic apps like Facebook, Messenger and Instagram and yet I already consumed 80-85% of its memory. I have to delete files (that are saved internally), disable some apps and programs, and regularly do a cleanup (clear caches) to free some space and make sure it's up and running well.
I recommend this as a basic phone for your teens, your grandparents, parents and anyone who don't need expensive phones and are just looking for a gadget that can do its task: send and receive calls and messages, take photos and videos, use basic social media and browse the web.
So many phones that offer a lot more for the same money. How did Samsung managed to sell so many of these puzzles me.
Most popular J series phone of 2017 in Philippines. But, Mi A1 never disappoints on every specs and pricing.
I have a samsung j2 prime also my cousin but my camera in rear its verydark while my cousins rear camera is very nice its not the same .

use share it app and not the play store to install apps..using share it will maximize the use of your SD card for apps because you can select on where your files will be stored.
I brought this ph a few days ago and it keeps saying storage space running out. I have done a factory reset on it and it hasn't made any difference and i have hardly anything on it. what is also annoying is all the apps that are already loaded onto the ph and you can't get rid of them. I've never had this much issues with a new ph before
venus, 12 Jan 20188gb is not enough for the features..i can't find how to save the application to sd card...this... moreSince updates only go to internal memory; you may format your SD card as though it were internal memory. This phone is on Android M so this should work. This feature is not available on Android L and lower.
