How to Flash Samsung Galaxy J2 Prime – The process of flashing an Android is commonly referred to as reinstalling if interpreted on a computer or laptop. Flashing is usually used to fix various problems such as a smartphone that is bootloop, a smartphone that forgets a password, a smartphone that restarts itself, a smartphone that hank or a smartphone that is totally dead aka hardbrick.
Actually, besides being able to fix various software problems in cellphones, flashing can also be used for other things. An example is updating the operating system to be newer or just trying a new custom ROM that is different from the original ROM / Firmware.
Although the actual flashing process itself is not difficult, my friend who wants to try it must be more careful because if you choose the firmware, your friend might not be able to turn on again, or commonly referred to as bootloop.
For this reason, you must be careful in choosing firmware, pay attention to the type of your cellphone and adjust the firmware to be downloaded for flash. And if you try custom ROM, then first pay attention to the comments of the people in the forum who have tried it, whether the comment is positive or even negative
Samsung Galaxy J2 Prime itself is the cheapest variant of the J Prime series released in Indonesia. The appearance of this phone has a metallic pattern and coupled with a metal frame around the body makes it more beautiful to look at.
The form of J2 Prime is reminiscent of the Galaxy Prime, all placement of the volume buttons, camera power, speakers are very precise. The front of this phone has several sensors, a front camera and a home button and a menu and back typical of Samsung.
The screen itself measures 5 inches with a resolution of 540p qHD, with this resolution, the look of this phone looks not optimal. Moreover, the absence of Super AMOLED technology has made it even worse, making the screen less sharp and clear.
But there are some improvements from the original version, such as the chipset which uses 64-bit Mediatek MT6737T this time. The Mediatek processor can run with a maximum speed of 1.4 GHz and is supported with a Mali-T720MP2 GPU.
Other changes are in RAM, this time being bigger, 1.5GB and the Android version using version 6.0, aka Marshmallow. While from the camera side, the Samsung Galaxy J2 Prime uses a resolution of 8 MP on the back and 5 MP on the front, both of which are supported with LED flash lights.
But unfortunately this phone’s internal memory is fairly small, only 8GB and even then that can be used by my friend only about half. As a result, my friend can not be free to save games or other applications.
There are several security features that are used such as the KNOX feature that is useful for protecting data and enhancing cellphone security. Then there is also a Secure Folder to lock data / applications. From the battery side itself, this phone is equipped with a battery capacity of 2600 mAh which is only used for half a day.
