[table id=31 /]
Design & Display
Well, the Samsung Galaxy J7 is dexterously built with premium materials, the result is a sleek and powerful that can survive strong impacts.
The only downside to the construction is the exclusion of Gorilla screen glass. Meaning your screen could easily break when it falls on concrete.
So I’d advice you buy a glass screen immediately you purchase this device.
This device conforms to the normal galaxy design, featuring a home button and two menu buttons positioned on either sides of the button.
The best thing about the design is the cheeky curved edges and a semi curved curved stripes which makes it extremely attractive.
At 1280 * 729 resolution, the screen produces none of that grain or pixilation you don’t like. Everything is crystal, crisp and clear.
In addition, the back use a matte finish providing a comfortable grip when using the phone. Even if your hand is a little bit wet, you won’t have it hard handling this device.
Oh yeah, we stand at the selling point of this device. Pitched at 13 megapixels on both front and back camera, this phone promise exciting picture sensation.
The rear camera gives you nothing but quality pictures. The aperture size of F/1.7, auto focus and image stabilization are awesome features. Also, you’d be glad to know that this phone shoots HD videos at 30 frames per second.
Equipped upfront is a 13 megapixel camera that trumps most selfie camera’s in its category. Backed by improved face recognition and filters, it’s perfect for selfie freaks.
Performance and Software
Only a few Samsung phones, aside the Galaxy S series will rival the Exynos Cortex A-53 chipset. The fast processor clocked at 1.6GHz gives users a uninterrupted multi-tasking and gaming experience.
The 3GB makes sure that all the powerful apps are held in accord and doesn’t crash or lags the phone. Everything runs smooth here.
The Samsung Galaxy J7 comes with a 16GB built in storage while the J7 pro features the 32GB internal storage. Their prices differ, as the J7 pro has a steep price tag.
To add cream on top, the phone ship in with a powerful 3600mah which is non-removable. On an average use, the phone can pull through a day without plugging it to a power source.
