Bezel-less Display and Super AMOLED Screen

The thin bezels give an illusion of an even wider screen to this 5.5-inch screen phone. The Super AMOLED screen of the J7 Pro feels amazingly bright, vivid and crisp with accurate color reproduction.

Hardware and Performance

The device is fueled by the mid-range 1.6 GHz Exynos 7870 octa-core (Cortex-A53) processor, similar to the Samsung J7 prime (2016).

Social Camera

It’s the first phone to have the Social Camera interface, specially designed for India, which makes social sharing and discovering a breeze. The 13-megapixel camera is coupled with a wide aperture of f/1.7 which results in bright and vivid pictures.

Software: A Step Ahead

The J7 Max and J7 Pro are one of the few budget devices from Samsung which has come packed with Android Nougat 7.0 in 2017. If you recollect, even the mid-tier Galaxy A5 or the C7 Pro released with Android Marshmallow.

Strong Battery

The  Galaxy J7 Pro is powered by a 3,600mAh battery that will easily see you through a whole day and more, in case of regular usage.

Overall, the Samsung J7 Pro can be seen as a great addition to the Samsung J series with its stylish design, Super AMOLED display, build quality, support for 4G LTE and a decent battery life. Plus, it lets you stick two nano SIM card together, along with a microSD card, thanks to the dedicated slots.

But then, it’s the price which is a tad much considering the average camera performance and a mediocre processor.

At a time when the Indian smartphone market is flooded with phones like the Xiaomi Mi A1, Gionee A1 or he Huawei Honor 8 Lite at a comparatively lesser price, it remains to be seen whether the Galaxy J7 Pro is able to beat the competition with the brand name alone.
