Is the Galaxy J2 Core (2020) 16 GB compatible for nomadic use?
Your smartphone must be able to accompany you at all times.If for you, a phone is just for making calls, you probably won’t need a smartphone.
The Galaxy J2 Core (2020) 16 GB is almost a model.In fact, it’s one of the smallest (5.0 inches) compared to other smartphones.
That means it’s not practical for internet browsing.Watching movies will be less enjoyable.It’s a model made for telephoning, mainly.
In addition, through its Wlan option, you can connect to wifi terminals.Convenient if you have cut off portability (abroad) and want to stay in touch with your loved ones. This phone is equipped with a GPS chip.You’ll appreciate not having to ask for directions anymore.Unless you’re at the bottom of a cave, you’ll be able to know where you are at any given moment.
Several Sims can be activated on this smartphone.This means that you can manage several packages at the same time.This will even be possible with competing operators.An interesting option abroad.
We found out that this Galaxy J2 Core (2020) 16 GB doesn’t have reinforced glass.No protection against scratches or the shocks of everyday life.A possible solution at a lower cost is the addition of a transparent tempered glass film, without altering the screen’s tactile reactivity.
Because of its battery, the range of this model is one of the worst.There is only 2600 mAh, which is low for normal use.As a precaution, you may have an external battery available nearby.
In conclusion on battery charging, Samsung has not changed anything compared to previous models, which means no fast charge.Convenient to use, it would have made it possible to recharge quickly.
The right choice for watching movies?
Smartphones have become the new televisions.A handy device for watching videos.You can also listen to continuous music anywhere.Access to the network allows you to watch a video stream whenever you feel like it.However, not all smartphones will do the trick.
Unsurprisingly, this model is not really made for multimedia.He’s at the bottom of our ranking.The 5.0 -inch screen is poorly suited for exercise.A resolution which is moreover in 540 x 960.It is rather advisable to listen to music.
Samsung has also designed this product for audio use.The 3.5mm jack input allows the connection of headphones and/or a microphone.
To transfer the sound from the phone, you will have the option via bluetooth.A technology that ensures quality sound.
And, on the nice but missing functionality side, we have the stereo speakers; the mono sound is shallower.
The Samsung phone, for video games?
Smartphone games now require power.This implies that the batteries must be able to keep up.On 3D games, the right processor and quality graphics chip ensure smooth rendering.In other words, the power of the technical components is essential to enjoy the game phases.
In the end, we found that the power of this Galaxy J2 Core (2020) 16 GB is below its competitors.The Exynos 7570 Quad (14 nm) processor is an older generation.The visual result is below other smartphones in this category.
As far as RAM is concerned, you’re at the minimum required on a smartphone.This model has 16 GB, which is low.And because Samsung predicted that some of you would be demanding gamers, you have the ability to expand the available memory.
Please note that in intensive use, the battery may not hold.Unfortunately in the case of this model, it is one of the worst.Its 2600 mAH power will force you to recharge before the end of the day.
We would have appreciated a higher level for displaying applications.Reading comfort where the display is not up to scratch.This is an entry-level model: 220* pixels per inch.The precision of the image, the colours; so many elements that will limit your desire to read on this phone.
And to finish on the application part, we note that the payment function via telephone (the NFC), is not available here.
Efficiency for audio and video
People have been using smartphones for some time now… to take pictures.For a long time, manufacturers have been communicating about the millions of pixels their devices were equipped with.But this characteristic is not everything.The possible retouching via application is also interesting.Samsung is renowned for the quality of its sensors and the design of its smartphones.
It’s a surprise from Samsung.This model thus has only one objective.
Don’t expect to see a nice picture on this Galaxy J2 Core (2020) 16 GB; a lower photo resolution than its competitors.An image resolution of 8 Mp which will give a mediocre result.You will limit selfies with this model, because of the poor quality of the rendering.Reprocessing photos is not intuitive.You will be able to take pictures perfectly, but don’t expect high quality.
This model is one of the least space-consuming with only 16 GB.Limited space to store your holiday photos and movies.And then we advise you to provide external backup solutions.
The Galaxy J2 Core (2020) 16 GB – in a nutshell
This Galaxy J2 Core (2020) 16 GB is not good for all uses.It can be a temporary choice or a temporary fix.Only its well-placed price is interesting; it can be a temporary choice.
