Anonymous, 24 Aug 2018In Malaysia this thing are priced slightly higher or equal ... moreOk but this has nothing to do with either my or your comment. Don't diverge from the subject please, unless you just don't want to admit you judged the device way too fast

lmao samsung is just recycling their j2 prime which is already 2 years old, unless this thing costs less than 50 USD it is just garbage and not worth of a purchase

Nokia 3 has to be a better option or huawei y6, unless priced stupidly low this won't compete

Atleast 720p is needed for a 5 inch display.And 1.5GB of ram to be smooth enough for regular task.
This thing is unusable even as a secondary device.
If you don't have enough money but want to use a trusted and quality brand like Samsung, spend a little more and buy a J5 or a used J7.
Don't buy this.

ProJames, 24 Aug 2018Seriously? You haven't even tried it man. Don't judge befor... moreIn Malaysia this thing are priced slightly higher or equal to a Redmi 5A and Asus Zenfone Live. Both are similarly equipped to give this J2 Core a thorough bitch slap for it to run back to its Korean mom.

I'll let you work that math vs. specs involved. Android Go or not, Samsung just shot itself in the foot with a J"2 Core" shotgun for sure.

O S, 24 Aug 2018That's so true, plus Adreno 308 is better than one Mali-T720Yup

1GB RAM is a deal killer. There needs to be at least 1.5 GB RAM for the phone to run smoothly. There is going to be lots of stuttering for this phone.

Cant believe this is the sanw company which makes the note series

Now the lowest screen resolution on smartphone at least hd/720p. But this qhd 480p will flashback 10 years ago when nokia still the king of smartphone that time. Samsung should learn from xiaomi,

Anonymous, 24 Aug 2018Someone in an emerging economy who cannot afford to spend 8... morea lot of phones within same price range and with better specs from companies like xiaomi , huawei and so on exists , samsung's pricing is very high and specs are very outdated , i didn't write my comments about the so called 850 usd mobiles like u say , i'm talking about same price range of this device with miles ahead specs , that's why i typed this "plain stupid comment" from your perspective .
