Reviews for the Samsung Galaxy J2 Core 2018

60% Samsung Galaxy J2 Core Review
Source: NDTV Gadgets English
The Galaxy J2 Core is Samsung's first Android Go smartphone, and it does get a couple of things right. Despite its low-end hardware like just 1GB of RAM, this phone manages to deliver snappy performance. Battery life is another big plus point. The display and the cameras are where corners have been cut the most.
