Released in late 2013, just before the announcement of the Galaxy S5, the Galaxy Express 2 is a larger phone compared to many and is thought of as being one of the fastest that Samsung released in 2013/2014. The 134 gram heft is a little heavier than most but it adds to the premium feel of the handset. It has a TFT capacitive screen with 245ppi and is 4.5" in size. The total size of the Express 2 is 132.4 x 65.7 x 9.8mm and has 16 million colours, a 540 x 960 pixel resolution and multi-touch technology.
There are WAV or MP3 ringtones and vibrating alerts, as well as a 3.5mm audio jack and a loudspeaker. There is up to 1.5GB RAM, which is faster than most, and there is 8GB of internal space and up to 64GB of microSD card space so you'll never be found wanting more memory. You obviously get 2G connectivity but 3G is taken care of by HSUPA and HSDPA, and there is super-fast 4G LTE that gives you up to 100MBps. There is WiFi Hotspot, WiFi 802.11 b/g/n, Direct, DLNA and there is EDR Bluetooth v4.0, Near Field Communication and a microUSB port.
You get a 5MP camera with the Samsung Galaxy Express 2, which shoots images at 2592 x 1944 pixel resolution, autofocus, an LED flash, geo-tagging, touch focus, smile and face detection, image stabilisation and a video camera as well as a VGA secondary camera on the front for video calls and 'selfie's.
The Samsung Galaxy Express 2 runs on the Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean operating system which is super-fast and has the latest editions of all apps, programs and functioning that Google has. There is a Java MIDP emulator, SNS integration, an MP3 and MP4 player, organiser, image and video editor, document viewer, TV out port, a stereo FM radio with RDS and FM recording, an HTML5 browser for Internet viewing, and there are a variety of sensors such as the compass, proximity, gyro and accelerometer. You get RSS, IM, email, push email, MMS and SMS, too.
You get a few built-in apps from Google such as Picasa, Google Talk, Calendar, YouTube, Gmail, Maps, and Google Search. There is a voice memo and dial function as well as predictive text. The battery is a lithium ion cell, that is 2,100mAh in capacity and gives you around 11 hours of talk time and up to 480 hours of standby time.
