Samsung Galaxy Express 2 Review

 

The Samsung Galaxy Express 2 is an affordable Android smartphone with 4G LTE connectivity. It packs a 4.5” display, a dual-core processor and a 5-megapixel camera…

Smooth performance, capable of running top games ; Supports expandable storage ; 4G LTE connectivity support ; Fairly good display for its class ; Fast and predictable camera in perfect conditions

Higher than usual price: there are similar LTE-less phones at much better price ; Screen is hard to read outdoors because of reflections ; No ambient light sensor, no automatic brightness adjustment ; No 1080p video recording ; A bit chubby

With a retail price of around $480 (€349.99) off contract, the Galaxy Express 2 is priced at more than you’d expect; it’s a mid-ranger, but it’s also among the more expensive mid-rangers. The reason for that higher price is the support for 4G LTE...

Samsung Galaxy Express 2 review

 

Despite sounding like a 1980s sci-fi series, Samsung's GalaxyExpress 2 is actually a midrange 4G-capable smartphone thatattempts to look like phones from the considerably more expensive Sseries while reducing the specs to get it below the £200 mark.

Stylish looks, fast processor, expandable memory

So-so screen, plastic casing won't be to everyone's taste

The Galaxy Express 2 takes some of the best bits from high-enderslike Samsung's S5 and S4 and reduces them enough to produce amidrange handset that looks like something considerably moreexpensive. The processor is surprisingly fast but the screen...

Samsung Galaxy Express 2 Review

 

The Samsung Galaxy Express 2 fills a size gap between the Galaxy S4 and the Galaxy S4 mini, but its price is the lowest of the three. Is it an awkward, overgrown child, or a serious smartphone worthy of consideration?

So the Samsung Galaxy Express 2 looks good, feels good to use and performs well. What’s not to like? Well, the price.
