Samsung Galaxy J7 Max
Hello, Friends! Today, I’m going to take a look at Samsung Galaxy J7 Max Review, and I’ll highlight the Pros and Cons of this device which is price 17,900 rupees (India). It’s Max because of the screen size which is at 5.7-inches, the largest in the J series smartphones from Samsung. So, let’s get started and find out-
Design wise; the Samsung Galaxy J7 Max is a quite decent looking device out there. Nothing is outstanding about this phone regarding the design aspect. You will also see that is more or less similar to any other Samsung Galaxy J series phones.
On the forefront downside, you have a physical home button which integrated with the fingerprint scanner, and you also have the back and multitasking capacitive keys. On the front panel upside, you have the 13-megapixel selfie shooter with LED flash, and it also comes with all the sensors included.
On the rear panel, you have a 13-megapixel primary camera with a circular ring around the camera unit which is a Smart Glow functionality, and you have a LED light. On the left edge, you have the entire gamut the volume rocker, SIM card Slot, and a Hybrid SIM card tray. On the right side, you have a power and lock key along with the speaker grille. At the bottom panel, you have a micro USB 2.0 charging slot and the 3.5mm headphone jack.
It’s a unibody metallic construction which feels quite good but design wise nothing is outstanding about this device.
Fingerprint Scanner: –
The phone comes up with a fingerprint scanner on the front panel, and it’s integrated with the home button. The fingerprint sensor performance is good, and it unlocks the device in quite good time. It’s very responsive and fast.
This phone comes up with a TFT full HD 5.7-inches screen size, and the resolution is 1080p, and the screen quality looks quite good. The colours pop out, and the screen is very bright. It used to have a 2.5D curved glass on this device, but there is no Corning Gorilla Glass protection or any other additional protection offered by this instrument.
You get a pretty beautiful viewing experience watching movies or videos on this device would be bliss. The screen holds plenty detail, and the high-resolution wallpapers bring that out fairly well. The touch response feels great. The outdoor visibility is also quite adequate. Even though it’s a TFT panel, so you got the surprise with the display quality. It’s a good screen out there, but it’s not as good as the AMOLED panel. Of course, the TFT display won’t give you the richer colours, but it’s a pretty sharp display overall.
Let’s talk about the Camera; you can launch it by just tapping the camera icon or double tapping the home button which is a quick start. You’ve got the tap to focus, and the shutter key is fast enough. When you swipe your finger right, you can look at all the modes that are available, and there are two new ones, the anti-fog and the social camera. The social camera is something that’s interesting and has introduced in the J7 Max.
This phone comes up with a 13-megapixel camera; it has 13-megapixel rear and 13-megapixel front camera. The camera interface is mostly unchanged from the S8. The phone also comes with autofocus; the autofocus was not very accurate. It was hunting for focus quite some time and not fast regarding focusing speed.
The day light shots did have some great kind of quality, sharpness levels are super impressive, and clarity of the photos taken in daylight conditions was great. Although at times focusing images did have some issues, but overall the clarity of the pictures was impressive for in this price segment.
The low-light experience of this device was again quite decent overall and did the job pretty well regarding the overall experience.
Now the front-facing selfie camera again was an excellent experience overall. The clarity of the front-facing selfie camera was good. The colour quality and overall experience using the selfie camera was fine, and this is one of the good selfie cameras. So overall, the camera experience of the Samsung Galaxy J7 Max was right.
Performance & Memory: –
It has an Helio P20 and Octa-Core chipset clocked at 2.4GHz Cortex-A53 and four gigs of RAM with 32 gigs of storage memory. The performance of this device was quite good overall. In day-to-day experience we didn’t notice any significant lags or issues but when you push hard for heavy multitasking. You could see some slight hiccups here and there not a major concern though but there are some minor hiccups here and there and over experience feels quite right.
The gaming experience was surprisingly good. You played a high graphics rich games and that there is no major lags or issues. The overall performance regarding the gaming experience was also satisfactory. So although the Helio P20 while it isn’t exactly powerful chipset nor it’s an efficient chipset like the Snapdragon 625.
This phone ships with Android 7.0 Nougat and Samsung’s latest grace UI a significant upgrade to its infamous TouchWiz UI. The device comes loaded with only some basic apps like the entire Google Suite of apps including the new and quite efficient video calling app called Duo. You also have the necessary office tools like Word, power point, Excel, one drive and So on. You have got some Samsung features, for example, its voice recorder, a file manager and then pretty good native email app as well and then Samsung health is already there and much more.
This phone also comes with Samsung’s Pay Mini which is a newer functionality where in you can make payments using UPI. It includes transfer capabilities and not primarily debt facilities. You can transfer the money like Paytm, but you can’t add credit cards. You’ve got the Smart Glow App, and Smart glow featured last year within the J series smartphones itself which is pretty much like the LED indicator for smartphones only. It’s at the back around the camera like a ring.
The J7 Max can be customised it more themes found at the Samsung store. You could go to the theme section and explore from amongst a lot of free and paid themes out there and this way your phones pretty much looked new and different every single day.
Let’s have a look at the speaker performance; you can see the speaker located on the right side. The speaker performance was average it’s not very loud concerning the performance.
This phone comes out with a 3300 mAh battery on this device, and the Helio P20 powers this. As I said before the Helio is not energy efficient chipset and that the things work well on this instrument. The battery performance is average, not great when you consider that it has 3300 mAh battery. You could get around that 3-4 hour of screen on time.
Overall, I think Samsung Galaxy J7 Max is worth the price, the large screen, Octa-Core processing power and four gigs of RAM puts it as a strong competitor to smartphones. That has been leading in this price range otherwise notably Motorola, I think. The 3300 mAh battery would easily last you the entire day with moderate usage. And then you’ve got the F/1.7 primary camera that can take some pretty good macro shots. The metallic finish and the 2.5D glass on the surface all within a lightweight, thin frame does make the device look good and classy and if the full grip of the device is something that doesn’t bother you. I suggest you can get the device it’s going to be a pretty good one.
