Display, Hardware and Design

The Galaxy J2 has a 4.7-inch Super AMOLED display with a pixel resolution of 964 x 540 pixels and a pixel density of around 234 PPI. The display is bright, has good viewing angles, offers vibrant color output and the sunlight visibility is also good. Blacks are perfectly black, thanks to the AMOLED panel. Since the pixel density is low text is not crisp compared to other smartphones with HD displays.

Since it doesn’t have an ambient light sensor you have to adjust the brightness manually using the slider depending on the conditions. There is an outdoor mode option that increases the brightness for 15 minutes or until the screen is turned off. The design of the smartphone is similar to other J series phones with curved corners and chrome rim on the sides.

The front camera can record videos at VGA resolution. It has a proximity sensor next to the earpiece, but the smartphone lacks an ambient light sensor, even though there is a cutout for it. It also lacks notification LED.
