Galaxy J6+ and J6
These phones are reminiscent of the last generation. They might seem similar but there are differences in processor, battery, screen, and camera. One of the most intriguing thing is that expensive J6+ has a slower processor than smaller J6. So let us start by listing specifications of Galaxy J6.
- Exynos 7870 SoC with 1.6 GHz 8 core processor
- 3000 mAh lithium-ion battery
- 3 GB RAM with 32 GB storage
- 5.6″ SAMOLED display with HD+ resolution at 720×1480
- 8 Megapixel f/1.9 front side secondary camera
- 13 Megapixel f/1.9 rear side primary camera
Now, let us have a look at specs of the bigger Galaxy J6+.
- Qualcomm Snapdragon 425 SoC with 1.4 GHz 4 core processor
- 3 GB RAM with 32 GB storage/ 4 GB RAM with 64 GB storage option
- 3300 mAh battery
- 6″ IPS LCD display with 720×1480 resolution
- 8 Megapixel f/1.9 front camera
- 12 Megapixel f/1.9 and 5 Megapixel f/2.2 cameras as primary shooter set
This phone got good reviews at that time but now, M series phone can compete with it easily. The Snapdragon 425 is not worth it at this time. The screen is also big but the resolution is not to the standard. Instead of these phones, we would recommend you to pick up newer smartphone models if you want good value and long life.
This phone is the second in row model after the normal A10. The Galaxy A20 is very similar to the M20. But there are some differences which can matter a lot. A series always has a good display so there is AMOLED panel. For more details, have a look at the hardware specifications listed below.
- 6.4″ Super AMOLED panel with 720×1560 screen resolution
- 4000 mAh lithium polymer battery
- Exynos 7884 SoC with 8 core processor
- 3 GB RAM
- 32 GB Internal storage with 512 GB memory card support
- 8 MP front side secondary camera
- 13 Megapixel f/1.9 and 5 Megapixel f/2.2 back secondary cameras
The Exynos 7884 chip has a 1.35 GHz 6 core set and 1.6 GHz 2 core set which makes a total of 4. The A20 only comes with 3 GB RAM and 32 GB storage. But its cheaper competitor M20 also comes with 4 GB RAM. However, there is no 4 GB model of M20 in the Nepali market. If we compare both phones, M20 makes more sense in buying.
This is one of the most popular phones in M series. It is the first one to debut actually and it created a lot of buzz because of its power. Its main attraction is a big screen and giant 5000 mAh battery. Before this smartphone, Samsung phones at this price didn’t offer anything of such caliber. Its specifications are as follows.
- Exynos 7904 Chipset
- 3/4 GB RAM with 32/64 GB storage variants
- 5000 mAh Lithium Polymer battery with 15W Fast charging
- 6.3″ PLS TFT Panel with 1080×2340 screen resolution
- 8 Megapixel f/2.0 front side secondary camera
- 13 Megapixel f/1.9 and 5 Megapixel f/2.2 secondary cameras
There is a 5000 mAh battery and it is a gift for people who consume a lot of power. This gives great power and screen on time to enjoy videos, movies, and web browsing. It does support fast charge which is good enough for a phone at this price. We don’t expect 25W charging here. We tested it with Note 9’s charger and it took 1.5 Hours to charge fully.
It also has great sets of rear cameras because there is 5 MP ultrawide module. We like the fact that it is a wide angle lens. The images come out really good and we have shown it in our review video and Instagram.
It is one of the cheapest phones in the M family. There are differences in size, processor, battery and other parts. But the primary back cameras are the same. The design language is also the same. It is a great sub $150 phone compared to offerings of other companies. Its specs are given below.
- 6.22″ PLS TFT Display at 720×1520 resolution
- Exynos 7870 SoC
- 2/3 GB RAM option with 13/32 GB storage option
- 3400 mAh lithium-ion battery
- 5 Megapixel f/2.0 selfie camera
There is quite a lot of difference in this compared to M20. We do like the fact that Samsung is providing the same good camera even at this price. All this shows how much phones have changed in a few years. We can now get phones with giant dispaly that measure more than 6 inches. We can also get octa core processors, bigger batteries, better front and back cameras. This is what advancement in mobile technology and change in the entry level segment really means.
It is very similar to the M10 but there are small differences that can matter to some. Two common hardware is the 3400 mAh battery and 5 MP f/2.0 front cameras. Others specs are as follows.
- 6.2″ SAMOLED display with HD+ resolution
- Exynos 7884 chipset with 8 core processor
- 2 GB RAM
- 32 GB Internal storage
- 13 Megapixel f/1.9 primary camera
This phone also doesn’t have dual cameras like the M10 and there also isn’t a higher memory version. The only point to bu this over M10 is the AMOLED screen. Nothing can match the Super AMOLED screens. The screen size is almost the same but the screen resolution is exact so it shouldn’t be an issue for many people.
Galaxy A2 Core and J2 Core
Both of these phones are very similar as they have similar hardware and the same software. Both run on the iconic Android Go Operating system. They also have the same screen size, RAM, battery, and more. These are the common hardware in both of these.
- 5″ Screen with 540×960 resolution
- 2600 mAh lithium-ion battery
- 1 GB RAM
- 5 Megapixel f/2.2 front camera
In the A2 core, screen technology is IPS LCD which is better than PLS TFT in J2 Core. The A2 Core with 16 GB storage and Exynos 7870 while J2 only offers 8 GB storage and Exynos 7570. For the camera, the Galaxy J2 Core has 8 MP f/2.2 main camera while A2 has 5 MP f/1.9 camera. Both phones have the lowest possible specs for this time. Thus they run the lightest software. It is for people who want the cheapest secondary phone or want to start in the smartphone world.
