Generally, both devices were released in 2015, but that doesn’t mean that they have a lot of similarities. In fact, in terms of battery capacity, the Redmi Note 3 has a huge advantage compared with the Galaxy J2. At the same time, the Redmi Note 3 is bigger in screen size in comparison with the J2. Perhaps the only notable advantage of the J2 is its removable battery, which is not available with the Note 3.
The size of the Samsung Galaxy J2’s 4.7-inch screen is of course inferior than the Xiaomi Redmi Note 3’s 5.5-inch. At the same time, the resolution is far out at 540x960p in comparison with 1080x1920p. Pixel density of the Note 3 is also at 403, which is not in any case closer to that of the J2.
In terms of processor speed, the J2 has 1.3GHz quad-core versus the 1.4GHz hexa-core of the Note 3. Moreover, the Note 3 has a processor make from Qualcomm Snapdragon 650 versus the Exynos 3475 of the J2.
Internal storage also has a very big disappointment for the fans as the Galaxy J2 only has an 8GB capacity, while the other one has 16GB. However, both has expandable storage and storage type, plus both have expandable storage of up to 128GB.
If you are one who is fond of taking pictures and videos, it is your responsibility to provide great results. For this reason, you should take advantage of the rear camera resolution of the Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 at 16MP, because the 5MP of the Samsung Galaxy J2 will not be able to provide great results. Moreover, the front-facing camera of the J2 is a bit inferior at 2MP, compared with the 5MP of the Note 3.
Software & Connectivity
Both devices run on Android version 5.1 Lollipop, which has a great advantage to others having a hard time updating to this version. Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth, and Radio are just a few of the similarities of both devices, but they differ in infrared because the J2 has none.
Good thing both models are capable of handling a couple of SIMs. At the same time, they both have headphone slots. However, the J2 has 2 micro-SIM slots, while the Note 3 has 2 nano-SIM slots.
Samsung Galaxy J2 2016 Vs Xiaomi Redmi Note 3
The latest J2 released in July 2016 was a bit different than the one released in 2015. Basically, the screen size was updated to 5 inches with a resolution of 720x1280p. The processor was also upgraded to 1.5GHz quad-core and 1.5GB of RAM.
The camera of the J2 has also been upgraded to 8MP and a front-facing shooter to match that of the Note 3 at 5MP. Perhaps the most exciting upgrade was the operating system, which is now packed with Android 6.0 Marshmallow.
However, the Samsung Galaxy J2 2016 is now equipped with a single SIM slot only. Perhaps it is intended to shave off more weight to match that of the Xiaomi Redmi Note 3.
