PERFORMANCE AND CONFIGURATION

Samsung Galaxy J2 Pro is powered by fast 1.5 GHz Quad-Core processor. The ARM Cortex-A7 processor is one of the most energy efficient processor and faster than single core or dual core processors. It results in smooth performance while doing multitasking or operating heavy applications. Mali-400 MP2, a multi-core GPU provides high-quality graphics. It takes the gaming experience of the user to another level. The smartphone runs on the Android Marshmallow OS.

The phone offers 2GB RAM, which is more than enough to avoid any lagging issue while streaming online music, playing videos and downloading images. The phone offers only 16GB internal storage, which is expandable up to 128GB via a MicroSD card, but many people demand extra storage in the phone. Though, we shouldn't forget that maximum phones of this price range do not offer more than 16 GB.

The Galaxy J2 Pro is loaded with innovative features like Ultra Data Saving mode and S bike mode. The S bike mode is dedicated to riders and encourage tension free, responsible riding. When a user receives a call while riding, the phone's urgent call system notifies the caller via an automated answering machine that the person won't be able to receive calls as he is driving right now. If the caller wants to attend the call, then they can press 1 for that.

The Ultra Data Saving mode saves 50% of mobile data by stopping unwanted background applications and includes a proprietary data compression technology to ensure a cost-efficient 4G usage.
