Samsung Galaxy J2 Pro (2018) Philippines

The Nokia 1 is cheaper than the Samsung Galaxy J2 Pro and it clearly shows.

Samsung’s device beats Xiaomi’s offering in almost every segment of this comparison. It has a bigger and better screen panel, more reliable processor, bigger storage capacity, better cameras, etc.

However, where the Nokia 1 really shines is in the software and user interface. For those who are unfamiliar with Android Go, it’s a variant of Android Oreo that’s tailored to make low-end smartphones work smoothly by its efficiency.

It’s a factor that’s really important for devices in this price range. And since the Galaxy J2 Pro runs on the outdated 7.1 Nougat, we expect it to be close in terms of performance when compared to the Nokia 1’s more efficient system.

But then again, the Galaxy J2 Pro has overall better specs. However, nowadays hardware can only take a product so far. If I were to choose, I’d easily pick the one with better software instead of going with raw power. But that’s just me.

Samsung’s offering retails for a price of Php7,490. Meanwhile, consumers can get Nokia’s budget-friendly device for only Php4,290. Both devices are now available in the Philippines.

In the end, it will be up to the consumers if they want to spend more with the Galaxy J2 Pro to get the extras or settle with the Nokia 1 which is quite a decent budget smartphone on its own.
