Perhaps its main selling point is the 5 MegaPixel front facing camera with Soft LED flash and Beauty Mode that allows the user to snap bright and brilliant self-portraits even in low to zero lighting conditions. So if you love snapping and sharing selfies on social media, you might appreciate this.

There's also an 8 MegaPixel autofocus rear camera - with f/2.2 aperture and LED flash - that be quickly launched simply by double clicking on the power button; This is a feature that used to be unique to Samsung's S-Series flagship handsets.


In terms of looks, the Galaxy J2 Prime has a pretty subdued design language. But what's special about it is that the back plate has a non-slip grip pattern that's supposed to minimize the risk of accidental slippage or drops while you're holding the device.
