MSP Score
  • Pros
  • Durable and compact
  • Cons
  • Overpriced for what it offers
  • Unusable cameras
  • Underwhelming battery life
The Galaxy J2 is the reason why Samsung should stop bringing out entry-level devices that are priced as the current mid-range phones on the market. With its low-end performance and specifications, the Galaxy J2 disappoints.
