Samsung Galaxy J2 (2016) preview: First look

11 July 2016
The 2016 Galaxy J2 is Samsung's latest budget Android device. It is the successor to last year's Galaxy J2 and improves upon it in several areas, most predictably in the specification department. However, Samsung has also added some new features, such as the Smart Glow, a unique ring of LED notification light around the rear camera that lights up in various colors, and also S Bike mode, and something Samsung calls Turbo Boost Technology. Will all this be enough for the phone to survive in the fiercely competitive budget Android phone market? We took a quick look at the device to find out.
