This smackdown is between the Samsung Galaxy J2 that just came out the past month and Samsung Z3 which will make its way to the market starting with the 21st of October. Because these handsets are identically priced, this comparison is meant to shed some light and help you make up your mind. So here it goes:
Displays and processors
The Samsung Z3 device has a 5-inch Super AMOLED display with HD resolution of 1280×720 and 294 ppi while the Galaxy J2 has a smaller 4.7-inch Super AMOLED display with resolution of 960×540 and only 234 ppi. The former device has a Spreadtrum quad-core processor clocked at 1.3GHz whereas the Samsung Galaxy J2 is packed with an Exynos 3475 quad-core processor clocked at the same 1.3GHz.
Snappers, Batteries & OS
The Samsung Z3 houses an 8 MP back end camera with LED flash and a 5MP front-facing one. The Galaxy J2 on the other hand has a 5 MP back end camera with autofocus as well as LED flash while the front camera unit is a 2MP one, battery wise, the Z3 device has a bigger battery, a 2600 mAh unit whilst the Galaxy J2 has a 2000 mAh one.
The Samsung Z3 runs the Tizen 2.4 operating system while the Galaxy J2 runs Android 5.1.1 Lollipop.
RAM and Storage options
As for the RAM and storage, both of these devices contain 1GB of RAM and 8GB internal storage, which you can expand up to 128 GB (courtesy of the microSD card slot).
Costs and connectivity
The Samsung Z3 retails for Rs. 8,490 (availability starting October 21st) and so does the Galaxy J2. The latter device functions on 3G, WiFi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS and last but not least microUSB 2.0 whereas Samsung Galaxy J2 supports 4G LTE, 3G, WiFi 802.11 b/g/n, WiFi Direct, Bluetooth 4.1, GPS, microUSB 2.0 as well as USB OTG.
Given the fact that the price makes no difference, the specs should matter more in this case. Thus, the Z3 gizmo has a bigger display, higher MP as well as a bigger battery, the J2 handset on the other hand can connect to 4G LTE and because it is an Android device you can have access to a bunch of apps.
