Samsung galaxy J2

Samsung today announced the Galaxy J2, a relatively modest smartphone that joins the Galaxy J1, Galaxy J5, and Galaxy J7 in Samsung’s J series of Android devices. How is it? Let’s find out.

Revealed in India, the Galaxy J2 runs Android 5.1 Lollipop, and features an Ultra Data Saving mode powered by Opera Max (as you may know, Opera Max is also available as a separate app that allows Android users to save mobile data). The Opera Max is the USP for selling the device and Opera claims its data optimization technology can deliver up to 50% savings in mobile data and free up to 11% of RAM

Ultra Data Saving mode will also let Galaxy J2 owners block individual apps from using cellular data.

Another selling point for Samsung Galaxy J2 is that, the company stresses that the new Samsung Galaxy J2 has been developed in the company’s India R&D facility.

Much like the Samsung Galaxy J1, the new Galaxy J2 also supports 4G and supports LTE bands in India. Apart from 4G, other connectivity options include 3G, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, and Micro-USB. The handset is backed by a 2000mAh battery.
