Truth be told, the Samsung Galaxy J2 Core 2020 is a very basic device. It’s an entry-level device. And it’s one of those phones Samsung released specifically for people buying on a budget. Whether people would love this or not is the only question left to be answered.

Although the Samsung Galaxy J2 Core is not a beauty to behold – at least, not to me – and it’s features are just basic – if not archaic – you’ll still get a value consistent with what you got the phone for. In plainer words, don’t expect graphic and processing-intensive tasks to run smoothly. If they run at all.

But of course, the apps will run. They just might crash along the way. Or worse, freeze the device. Don’t even think about PubG. Haha

As true as it is that the Galaxy J2 Core 2020 is a basic smartphone with 1GB RAM and 16GB ROM, it cannot be compared with other entry-level smartphones from some brands. No names will be mentioned here though. You might want to keep an eye out for a comparison.

The Samsung Galaxy J2 Core is not available in Nigeria at this moment. Or least, not found in major stores. However, we’re evaluating this device to cost somewhere between NGN40,000 to NGN50,000 in Nigeria.
