Buy at Samsung

The Samsung Galaxy J2 Pro pairs a sharp 5-inch super AMOLED display with a capable 8MP camera at a very attractive price.

Released in 2018 as a refresh of 2016's Samsung Galaxy J2, the J2 Pro represents an affordable entry point into the Samsung Galaxy ecosystem suitable for those who only require basic functionality like calls, web browsing and social media.


  • A clean and simple look, and the super AMOLED screen is a nice addition
  • Supports 3.5mm headphones, expandable storage and most core smartphone features


  • The 8MP rear camera is sufficient for taking decent photos
  • The streamlined camera app makes a lot of sense in a budget smartphone


  • Sufficient grunt for most simple, everyday tasks
  • Serious mobile gaming is a no-go


  • Capable of up to 14 hours of continuous video playback, according to Samsung
  • Can be removed and replaced, unlike in most modern smartphones
