Below are the lists of Samsung Galaxy J2 Pro Issues and Problems. You can also consider them as cons, demerits, downsides, bugs or disadvantages.

2. Second Samsung Galaxy J2 Pro problems or cons is it does not support USB OTG cable. There are some users who regularly uses OTG cable and this device might be a cons for them.

3. Another Samsung Galaxy J2 Pro cons or issues is the absence of e-compass (magnetometer). Means turn by turn navigation with maps is not possible. If you never uses a map for navigation then there is no any problem.

5. And finally the last Samsung Galaxy J2 Pro disadvantages is the non support of adaptive brightness. Reason is it does not have an ambient light sensor. However if you don’t change your environment lightning quite often then there is no problem.
