Samsung Galaxy J7 (2017) Duos Smartphone Review

 

It's not all roses. The Samsung Galaxy J7 is the larger version of the Galaxy J5. It has similar features, but a larger, 5.5-inch display. After the redesign of the entire series, the J7, too, now has a non-removable battery. To find out about other...

great Full-HD display ; Dual SIM plus microSD ; fast wireless internet ; great battery runtimes ; good geolocation ; good fingerprint sensor

PWM ; weaker battery runtimes than predecessor ; modest call quality ; no USB Type-C ; GPU too weak

The Samsung Galaxy J7 (2017) is a well-made smartphone. However, it cannot dominate its competitors as much as the Galaxy J5. This gets especially apparent in terms of battery life. However, this is complaining on a high level, since they are still...

Samsung Galaxy J7 2017 (AT&T) Review

 

Selling for $240 off-contract, AT&T's new J7 2017 has a lot of competition. So, does it offer enough of Samsung's flair and capability to win out decisively over other highly competitive, unlocked, and AT&T-friendly mid-rangers?

Bright, vibrant screen ; Camera reproduces colors well in properly lit situations ; In-house chipset delivers generally quick performance

Dated look ; Cheap-feeling materials ; Display is prone to causing eye strain ; Very poor low-light camera performance ; No fingerprint scanner or splash resistance, lacks 1080p on a 5.5-inch screen

Samsung Galaxy J7 (2017) review: a pleasant surprise

Satisfactory performance ; Good battery life

No USB Type-C port or fast charging ; Unconvincing camera

The Galaxy J7 (2017) is a good smartphone that could even be mistaken for an A series device. It has a specs sheet similar to that of the A3 (2017). The design is also a clear reminder that it's cut from the same cloth, despite the lack of...
