Description

Here is another phone that is good on looks, packed with a great camera and an exceptionally good battery. Samsung Galaxy J7 Pro brings you the best photography experience with its 13MP camera that brings the instinctive photographer in you to the fore. The Social Camera feature allows you to share the best moments instantly with the utmost ease. If everyday multitasking is the norm for you, Galaxy J7 Pro comes with an Octa Exynos processor to make your Smartphone experience effortless. Added to these are its sleek finish and 5.5″ full HD AMOLED display that brings the best of colours to your screen in detail and sharpness. If that’s not enough, care to add style to your life with an elegant metallic body.

Not only does the phone look great in hands, but also is a head turner too. And Samsung gets full marks for that! A battery notch above any of its competitors ensures that you can just keep going with your busy day on phone without worries. The cameras bring the best of reality to your screen in life-like clarity and vivid colours. Overall, this is pretty much a phone that one can fall in love with.

Highlights

This is not the phone for heavy users as it is average on performance. Perhaps because of the limitations of its hardware.  But why would they choose a phone that sacrifices performance for looks in the first place? However, if you are looking for a mid-range phone that keeps your daily life and makes its presence felt in the crowd, this is your phone. With a mere 3GB RAM and expandable memory of 128GB only, it might seem to be slightly overpriced especially when Moto G5 Plus and LG Q6 offer much-balanced specifications. That said, there is nothing that beats Samsung experience and Smartphone users know that!

Expert Opinion

Samsung Galaxy J7 Pro – Crafted for Perfection but Falls Short of It!

Display

The phone is great in reproducing colours and viewing is strain free from any angle for multiple viewing. Thanks to its 1080p AMOLED display panel! Streaming videos is a pleasure while the phone is equally easy to the eye in bright sunlight or low light. Outdoor viewing, or watching videos while travelling is equally comfortable. The distinct consistency in a display that the phone offers is owing to its AMOLED panel. It makes Galaxy J7 Pro-rate higher that not just most Samsung phones in the price range, but many of its competitors as well.

Design

The aluminium metallic design is impressive but the antenna bands on the back instead of the top take you by surprise. This innovation (if you don’t like it) is more than balanced by the oval camera module at the back which is placed perfectly at to its distinct attraction. Curved rear edges and round corners are much like most Samsung phones, however, the bezels are slightly trimmed. Overall, the weight, design and looks of the phone impart it a sturdy feel and it lives up to that reputation as there are no strict “handle with care” warnings attached in case the phone falls. You can be assured of its durability despite accidents!

Performance

Even though the phone is powered by a robust Exynos 7870 chipset and 64GB internal memory, its average performance is difficult to understand. The processor is clocked at 1.6GHz and backed by a 3GB RAM but this seems to be insufficient to deliver a performance that matches the quality of other specifications. The fingerprint sensor is lazy. The apps yawn before opening and the load on hardware shows on heavy usage or intense multitasking. Even though the phone won’t disappoint on everyday usage, the main worry is that it is slower than its most competitors.

Camera

The 13MP camera is f/1.7 aperture and beats the photo quality of its Samsung siblings and counterparts in the price bracket. In low light, the photos might lack detail but it won’t embarrass on social sharing. All that is good in camera is balanced by a poor focus which takes long in low light and at times skips its duty. Blurry photos can be the norm in challenging environments.

Battery

The 3600 mAh battery lasts longer than a day with ease, even when the phone is kept busy with heavy functions the day long. It is a better battery than any other phone in similar price by a fair margin.

Verdict

One feels that if the company had paid attention to performance, especially a greater RAM, and pushed the camera quality a bit, this would have been a tough phone to beat. There is much in the phone that impresses but it is still overpriced since, at its price, balanced features with a few outstanding ones are what buyers expect. If display, usual camera usage, looks and battery life satisfied the definition of a great Smartphone at the cost of performance, this, surely would have been one!
