  • not a good phone with its price range.
    Cbz Momin (Sep 26, 2016) on Gadgets 360
    To be honest i'd say it is one of the worst phone ever.. and i'd like to tell you what the problems are .. 1. Cannot use 2 apps at once..ex. just in case if i want to use an app using a vpn then forget about it because vpn will automatically disconnect after few seconds of using that app. 2. You will not be able to utilize those important apps like watsapp, messenger, allo.. basically because you wont receive any messages sent to you unless you open those app. 3. The battery is not good enough if you are a regular player of COC. I believe you already know it. COC consumes a hell of lot of battery. 4. The download even using mobile data sucks.. in most of the cases there is no smooth download. Ex- if you are downloading a video it will stop loading forward after few %.. you can even check using the internet speed meter you'll see there is no consumption of data even if download is going on which means its not even getting downloaded.so the solution is pause the download and and start again..the download will start from where it was not moving so dont worry on that part. 4. If you are downloading a video using your google chrome on this phone you will have a hell lot of problems and let me tell you there is no option to cancel the download.. even if you try it wont work. 5. I wish there was a default call recorder on this phone but nope it doesn't.. 6. I've heard and read this phone doesn't get hanged.. well whoever told that is sure getting paid for telling that lie.. trust me i'm using one and every phone with this price range will do. I dont say it will get hanged for a long time or give u heavy problems. It just slows down your apps and ya will get stuck into that shot for few seconds. Best solution restart your phone. 7. If you are not using an external memory card then forget about a proper function of your phone.. There are just lot of problems with this phone which i just cant remember at the moment.. but trust me its not a phone you wanna buy at this price range.. i'd recommend you to purchase other brand or phones instead.. My friend had is using a coolpad note 3 which is cheaper than this phone but have better features and is of better quality.. Anyway Samsung really..?? i know it comes at a low price range however it is not good enough to satisfy cosumers all because it lacks the basics which the consumers use regularly.. so you better check on what the problems are ..fix it.. coz no one ain't buying this lacking the basics.

  • Below average sound quality
    Purplex Mar (May 10, 2016) on Gadgets 360
    How could company like Samsung miss on this, I wonder whether they checked it or not. the phone sound while talking is below average , to be frank, its poor. while in traffic, just forget about it, you should look for by lanes to pic up the call. even sound is not well audible despite volume levels are full. Please rectify this. don't you think this is a main feature customers look for while buying, please excuse.

  • Samsung J2
    JP (Sep 4, 2017) on Gadgets 360
    BUYER BEWARE>>>DO NOT BUY THIS GARBAGE>>>.....Samsung advertises this phone with 8GB of internal memory..BULLSHIT...What Samsung does NOT tell us..is that they pre-install all the Apps they want..and leave us with not even 1GB of storage to use....forcing people to buy a SD card. They lie to sell more products after you buy this phone.. I have NO (ZERO) Apps installed in this J2 and I have ONLY 742 MB available storage space..Samsung has stolen 7.3 GB of my storage space that I PAID FOR..to install their OWN apps that I DO NOT want..and they made it impossible for users to delete or disable these apps...SO the TRUTH is..Samsung J2 has ONLY 7.3MB of internal storage..and you CANNOT download ANY apps without SD card...RIP-OFF..Garbage. VERY disappointed in SAMSUNG..I want my money back..JP LOL..P.S. I see we are not able to post screenshots on here to support what we say...Surprise...hahaha

  • A good average phone.
    Mayank Kumar (Sep 26, 2015) on Gadgets 360
    A good average phone from Samsung. The screen is good and the performance is decent. A good phone for those who want a samsung phone with a budget of Rs. 8000.

    The product is very good, my model no SMJ200H, android version 5.1.1 but it is not working with JIo. Why I don't know. This is the only draw back of this set.Pl. check before buying whether it is working with Jio or not.
