Display and Configuration

Samsung Galaxy Express 2 sports a 4.5 inch qHD display in a polycarbonate encased body. The screen has a display resolution of 960x540 pixels and a pixel density of ~260 ppi. It is powered by a 1.7GHz dual core chipset coupled with a 1.5GB RAM which is ideal for running all types of apps available on the Play store as the device is bundled with Android’s  4.2 Jelly Bean operating system which is upgradable. 

Camera and Memory

The Camera department of the Express 2 is lacking with only a 5MP primary shooter and a VGA front camera which seems odd considering the other high end feature the cell offers. However, this might be intentional by Samsung to keep pricing in control. The camera comes with features such as Auto Focus, Digital image stabilization, Face detection, Geo tagging, Smile detection, Touch to focus and an LED flash and is capable of recording videos at 720P with stereo surround sound. The internal memory is sufficient at 8GB which can be expanded to 64GB using the microSD bay to house all kinds of media.

Connectivity and Battery

One thing this phone does not lack is in it’s connectivity options. The phone supports a 4G LTE network along with NFC, Bluetooth v4.0  Wifi 802.11, a/b/g/n with dual antennas, DLNA, EDR and A-GPS. It also comes bundled with a ton of apps from samsung with some interesting ones like smart stay which uses facial detection to check if the phone is in use and group play which is a great way to share music and videos to other compatible samsung devices.

The Li-Ion battery provides 2100mAH of current which is sufficient to last a whole day or give 7-8 hrs of calling on 3G and more on 4G networks.

Verdict

As in the words of the Vice president of Samsung, the Express 2 has been designed to keep sophistication in mind and to offer a faster and smoother operation and it does that with ease, if not for the average camera, this could have been a great device.

    The Samsung Galaxy Express 2 looks to be the quintessential mid-range 4G handset, but how does it fair in practice? Despite the startling similarities from one Samsung handset to the next, there’s something somewhat distinctive about the look of the Express 2 (relative to other Samsungs at least). Slotting between the Galaxy Ace 3 and Galaxy S4 Mini, the Express 2 is more squared in its appearance, which doesn’t mean it’s partic...

    Despite sounding like a 1980s sci-fi series, Samsung's Galaxy Express 2 is actually a midrange 4G-capable smartphone that attempts to look like phones from the considerably more expensive S series while reducing the specs to get it below the £200 mark. The Galaxy Express 2 is several steps below Samsung's big gun, the S5, and spec-wise it's designed to sit somewhere between the older S4 and the S4 mini, though it's actually a bit cheaper than ei...
