  1. J max would have been good with 1080 p, low resolution kills the joy of surfing and watching videos, also ram 1.5 GB?? too low, just for samsung brandname its okay at this price,

  2. Hi Gogi,

    Can you please suggest me an android calling tablet having HDMI port as well? under 10K.


  3. Sony xperia XA has low specs but gaming is better than RN3 but Samsung is a sh*t

  4. Woww…well priced. 1.5gb with spdtrm prcr..awsom move samsung..u deserve nokia’s current position..go ahead …u can achive it easliy..

  5. As long as u r a brand freak and love Samsung in this case, they do just a dance like changing 1 or 2 specs and add 1 funny/fancy item like this disco light, and loot u r money. Look at that Max, it seems they r using some old model die still. Besides they r making double curves, here they r showing ugliness of bezel, so it’s clear, under below 20k product from any top brands are Bullsh**, and they want to make fortunes from sh**, 😀 conjuse strategies finally give them nothing but permanent sh** of out of business, just like Nokia.

  6. Its just a gimmick phone meant to fool the offline customers to buy this garbage phone.

  7. Another scrap for the Dumb and Deaf people.

    Arey jaag jao yaar……kab tak bewkoof bante raho…
    Sirf Brand Conscious hone se koi fayda…..apni aqal bhi lagaya karo….

  8. Performance of the spreadtrum chip set is horrible .It takes you back to the laggy single core processor days .

  9. Camera/offline market lovers pls don’t buy j2 instead buy a
    Low priced camera and buy redmi 2 prime which is much better than this.

  10. Samsung is again back on releasing sh*t phones….spreadturm processor on 10k….at least home made exynos is expected…whats wrong with you Sh**sung…

  11. j3 has almost same spec without smartglow. tablet looks great within months price may go around 12k.if it’s spreadtrum chip then unimpressed ignorable

  12. J max is an effort to challenge Mi MAx but it got failed, also j max is too much over prices a 14k for 8+2 MP camera , opps !!!
