Talking at the Launch Event, Mr. Pranaya Ratna Sthapit, Deputy General Manager, HHP Division, Samsung Nepal said,
” The response to our J Series has been phenomenal with consumers appreciating the build quality and the Nepal-centric features like UDS, S-bike, TST, S power planning and S-secure that make Samsung’s J Series a compelling offering for our consumers. Inspired by this success, we are pleased to expand our portfolio with the addition of Galaxy J2 Ace prices at NPR 13,990. This model has been conceptualized and equipped with the front flash in a 5” screen phone to cater to the needs of both selfie-takers and entertainment lovers.”
The Samsung Galaxy J2 Ace is obviously a very good phone considering the price, but 1.5GB of RAM and a qHD display could turn off few users considering other budget phones at this price point comes with 2GB of RAM and HD display. Also, Samsung has opted to go with the TFT display instead of the AMOLED screen which is a weird choice. However, features like 4G LTE support, Turbo Speed Technology for enhanced performance, and a 5MP selfie camera with flash are the pros of the phones.
