- Analysis by KJ David
Specifically designed for budget-cautious shoppers or those who simply want an elementary Android phone, the Samsung Galaxy J2 Core suffers from cons like a 5-inch TFT display with a mere 960 x 540 qHD resolution . In comparison, many competing entry-level smartphones that hit the market at around the same time tout at least HD-720p displays, although FWVGA-480p and qHD-540p screens still crop up every now and then in the prepaid smartphone market.
Like many other low-end smartphones, the J2 Core's pros and cons are powered by a modest 1.4GHz quad-core processor (It uses Samsung's self-branded Exynos 7570 chip) coupled with an primitive 1GB-only RAM . Moreover, it does not go beyond 8GB of internal memory , but it does come with a microSD card slot for some top-up storage, although Samsung did not indicate its memory expansion limit at the time of this Phonerated review.
As for its pros, the J2 Core joins our list of Android Go Edition smartphones, which basically means that it runs on a stripped-down version of the Android 8.1 Oreo operating system that's preloaded with less-demanding versions of core Google applications as a method of cutting back on power, memory, and data consumption. Additionally, it offers a Samsung's Ultra Data Saving application , obviously for conserving mobile data allocation.

This Galaxy J model comes with an 8-megapixel f/2.2-aperture LED-flash primary camera , which, as far as low-caliber 2018 smartphones are concerned, sounds just about right. It also has a 5-megapixel front-facing camera (also with an f/2.2 aperture) right above its display, which we find unsurprising, given the rest of its pros and cons.
In charge of its power supply is a 2600mAh battery that sounds neither disappointing nor impressive, since a lot of entry-level 2018 smartphones usually have power caps within the 2500mAh-3000mAh range.
Summing up, Samsung's 2018 Galaxy J2 Core is equipped with no more than core smartphone features, making it a feasible choice for those who are only just getting their first smartphone or those eyeing a backup device for a higher-specked Android.
