Expert Opinion

Samsung Galaxy J7 (2017) – As Close as it Gets to being a Complete Smartphone!

Display

The full HD 1080 X 1920 pixel 5.5″ display is pleasant and your eyes would not be strained whether in sun or in dark. The screen to body ratio is 73% and colour quality is better than most phones in its price range.

Display Resolution1080 x 1920 pixels

Design

Even though it is not a phone that will turn heads, it isn’t dull either. The metallic body provides a touch of elegance and imparts the classic Samsung look like that of Note 8. The front has an oval button with two capacitive buttons with headphone jack and micro USB port housed at the bottom. The phone feels nice in the hand but you will mostly have to use both hands. The left side has volume button and SIM card slot. The phone does not have a waterproof body which seems to be the only lack on the design front.

Performance

Galaxy J7 (2017) is powered by Exynos 7870 which might not be the latest for this price range of phones but is nevertheless satisfactory. The processor has Mali-P830 GPU which is not suited for gaming that involves high-quality graphics. The 3GB RAM ensures that your Smartphone experience never turns out to be annoying, except if you really want to test its limits rather than put it to regular usage that it is meant for. Multitasking is hassle free, and overall, the phone is a joy to use.

Camera

The camera is anything but like what it promises on paper. One can easily figure out that picture quality is lower than most other phones in similar price bracket. The sensor is lazy to adjust to light, optical stabilization is lacking and photos in poor light carry noise. To make the matters worse, the shutter speed is merely 1/17th of a second leading to frequent blurs. The colours lack contrast but the pro mode balances some of the deficiencies by offering brightness correction.

Battery

Galaxy J7 (2017) has a battery of 3600mAh – one of the best in its price range. It would last a day easily on regular usage including some surfing and online videos but it lacks fast charging feature and USB Type-C port which makes the battery and charging feature somewhat outdated.

Verdict

Samsung Galaxy J7 (2017) boasts of strong essentials, especially on the inside. If you are a no-nonsense Smartphone buyer, this will quite surely be your phone. It will not be a bad phone for anyone else either. Few small things such as USB Type-C port, better camera quality and waterproof body would have made this phone the best in its price range. Nevertheless, it would remain a tough competitor.
