Talking about the design, like the usual Samsung design standards, the Samsung Galaxy J2 2016 has plastic body making it look and feel cheap. The device is available in two colors Black and Gold.

Hardware and Features
Samsung this time has moved from Exynos to a Spreadtrum SC8830 Quad Core chipset clocked at 1.5GHz and combined with it is just 1.5GB of RAM, where as you can get phone with 3GB RAM and better processors in this price range. On the software end, the phone is based on the latest Android Marshmallow 6.0 out of the box with Samsung's TouchWiz UI running on top of it.

Camera & Storage
In terms of storage capacity, you get 8GB of onboard storage which can be further expanded up to 128GB via a MicroSD card. For photography you have a 8MP rear camera with an LED Flash and on the front lies a 5MP shooter for those selfies and video calling needs. The rear camera can record videos up to 1080p and around the camera is the new Multi-Coloured Glow LED Notification light.

Battery and Connectivity
Powering all this is a 2600mAh removable battery which might struggle to last through the day. The phone accepts Dual Micro SIMs and you also get NFC & 4G support on this device.

The Xiaomi Redmi Note 3, Lenovo K5 Plus or Coolpad Note 3 Plus looks like fairly competitive devices in this price range.
