Basically, the Smart glow feature will let you color-code your contacts, apps, and phone usage alerts so that you can know what notifications you have without even having to look at the screen.

Having said that, the Galaxy J2 is a mid-range device that sports a (an):
 

  • 5-inch AMOLED display
  • Spreadtrum SC8830 quad-core 1.5GHz processor
  • 1.5GB of RAM, 8GB of storage
  • 8-megapixel rear-facing camera, 5-megapixel front-facing camera
  • 2,600 mAh battery
  • Android Marshmallow

Before you start shaking your head at the low-specs, you must consider the fact that this is a $145 device and based on what we have in the market right now, this looks like a fair bargain.

What do you think of the Smart glow, Gimmicky or not? (P.S.: Samsung isn’t the first to debut this)

    How do you know the phone is glowing When most of us have the LED/LCD facing upwards?

    1. Tobi Ayeni says:

      Well, for the J2, you will have to put the phone facing backwards to enjoy this feature, and that is like breaking a lifelong habit

        Hmmm, that’s a tough one to break

  2. Noni says:

    8GB of storageis a “fair bargain”? I would avoid that like the plague and go for a Chinese-made phone with 16GB of storage first. Samsung is amazingly stingy with the storage on their lower end devices.

    Ummmm it’ll take time getting used to, it looks odd, wayyyy odd. Normally smartphones go face-up.
