Expert Reviews


Major Junior League - Samsung Galaxy J7 (2017) review


19th July, 2017
Build quality and materials are flagship-grade, we appreciate the IP54 rating. The antenna strips may not be everyone's cup of tea.The high-quality Super AMOLED display has very good maximum brightness and infinite contrast and can put out punchy or spot-on colors depending on your preference. Sunlight legibility is great.Battery life is superb - the phone's endurance rating is 108h, and it posted excellent numbers in all our individual tests.We were happy to see the fresh new Samsung UX on the J7 (2017).The GPU, on the other hand, is not only dated but also weak and responsible for a dissatisfying gaming performance. In absolute terms, it's an average mid-range SoC that's not greatly suited for gaming. Oddly, the Game Launcher now lacks the option to change the game resolution, which would have improved the performance.
Very good audio output through both amplifier and headphones. The loudspeaker is surprisingly loud and earned itself another "Very Good" mark in our tests.Image quality from the main camera is good, although not spectacular in any way. Detail is plenty and noise are kept pretty low, but the dynamic range is rather poor, colors are a little toned down for our taste and there is some corner softness.

  • Fingerprint reader
  • Dust and splash resistance(IP54 certification)
  • Good Battery backup
  • Same GPU as the J7 (2016), yet twice as many pixels on the screen
  • Low-grade water resistance
  • The micro USB port is getting outdated
  • No quick charging

Samsung Galaxy J7 (2017) review


17th July, 2017
The Samsung smartphone holds an octa-core processor and 5.5-inch full HD AMOLED display with a resolution of 1,080 x 1,920 pixels.Have decent battery back-up.In-Plane Switching Liquid Crystal Display (IPS LCD) Offers more sharpness, shows more realistic looking Images, Displays More Natural Colours and performs better in Bright sunlight as compared to LCD Displays.The Samsung Galaxy J7 2017 extracts its energy from a big 3,500mAh Li-ion battery which claims to render a long lasting battery life.Image quality from the main camera is good, although not spectacular in any way.Graphics Processing Unit enables smooth processing of 3D Games and HD Videos. It also shares the load of processors and saves battery.13MP primary camera that can process crystal clear images.The 5MP front camera looks good.
The Samsung Galaxy J7 (2017) is priced about 20% higher than the 2016 iteration of the Galaxy J7 back when it launched. of course, it's not unusual to experience such a hike nowadays. And the best way to find out if the J7 (2017) is worth the extra cash is to check out the competition like Moto G5 plus, Nokia 6, Sony Xperia XA1 etc. With waterproof design, it got powerful Exynos 7880 chip, double the storage, and higher camera resolution is definitely worth.
  • Powerful battery life for long hours usage
  • Dust and splash resistant
  • Good cameras for capturing decent quality images
  • Lacks Quick charging
  • Lacks 4K video Capturing
