It’s good to see a larger range of devices coming into Australia, even if the Galaxy J2 isn’t the device for you, it could be for someone else. Previous devices in the Galaxy J-range have been quite popular with budget-conscious consumers, and the J2 is sure to continue that lineage.

Do you know someone who would benefit from the Galaxy J2?
