Samsung Galaxy J7+
Hello, Guys! Today I’m going to take a look at Samsung Galaxy J7+ Review. Dual cameras are a thing now, more and more brands and joining the bandwagon. Say hello to the Samsung J7+, it’s the first device from the J series line up sport into a professional camera setup. And needless to say that it’s strongest suit but can it live up to our expectations. So, let’s find out-
Design & Build: –
The Samsung Galaxy J7+ pretty much look like the Galaxy J7 Pro. It has an all-metal unibody and slim aide bezels making the device look and feel premium will be quite hefty.
On top of the display, you have a 16-megapixel front camera with LED flash and the earpiece. Below the display, you have the non-lead capacitive navigation buttons and the hardware home button, it also acts as a fingerprint scanner. The fingerprint scanner is not the fastest one. On the left side of the phone, you have the volume rocker and the Hybrid Nano SIM Card slot.
The right side houses the power button and speaker grille. The speaker gives off a somewhat decent and loud sound quality. It’s got a little bass to it and when set at max volume its audio quality still manages pretty well without sounding teeny.
Above the phone, you will find a noise cancelling microphone. Below the device, you will find the main microphone, micro USB port and a 3.5mm headphone jack.
The flipside of the phone, you will find its 13-megapixel + 5-megapixel Dual main cameras with LED flash and the Samsung logo. The metallic back panel is somewhat more prone to hairline scratches than fingerprint smudges.
It sports a 5.5-inch Full HD Super AMOLED display with 1920 by 1080 resolution which equates to 401 PPI. The J7+ display produces vivid, sharp and punchy colours. The viewing angles are also good. It also comes with a 2.5D curved glass protection.
The J+ offers a 13-megapixel, f/1.7 + 5-megapixel, f/1.9 Dual main cameras and a 16-megapixel selfie shooter both with a dedicated LED flash. As sports Dual rear camera the device features live focus which allows you to take images with the artificially blurred background. Other features such as Pro, Panorama, HDR, Night and Food Modes are also present and you have 16 filters to choose from to spice up your photos.
The front camera also features selfie focus with beauty mode which lets you achieve that bokeh effect on your selfies. If you want to go all out kawaii there are many attractive stickers and stamps for you to choose from.
Taking images on the Samsung Galaxy J7+ is a very enjoying and fun experience. Resulting pictures look very crisp and sharp most especially in daylight. However, using the auto mode causes blow up lighting sometimes. The dynamic range is very good levels. Night mode images tend to be quite noisy and the picture quality is average.
The image quality looks quite good. Low-light selfies also look good because of its wide aperture. When taking selfies in low-light with LED flash, the images look quite decent.
The Samsung Galaxy J7+ can shoot video up to 1080p at 30 frames per second and it delivers good and sharp footage quality. It lacks optical image stabilization so you can expect a quite shaky footage.
The Galaxy J7+ is powered by MediaTek Helio P20 which clocked at Octa-Core 2.39GHz processor. It coupled with 4 gigabytes of RAM and 32 gigabytes of storage which is expandable up to 256 gigabytes via microSD.
I Played a lot of games like Asphalt 8, Mortal Combat and Dead Trigger 2 on the medium graphics settings, the phone just flies. But if you play these type of high-quality games on highest graphics settings then there will be a problem like skipped frames or stuttering. I had no problem with multi-tasking.
The Samsung J7 Plus runs on Android 7.1.1 Nougat skinned with Samsung’s TouchWiz UI. It’s got all the Samsung proprietary apps such as Samsung health, Samsung Notes, Voice Recorder, Email, Internet and My Files. It also comes with Galaxy apps just like the Google Play Store, Pre-Installed Google Apps, Facebook and Microsoft apps are also present out of the box.
Swiping left on the home screen allows you to access Samsung’s virtual assistant Bixby. It shows you your schedule for the day most visited web pages, weather, news and more.
The Galaxy J7+ has a 3000 milliamp-hours battery which lasted you an entire day with average uses. It takes 3 hours for charging 0% to 100% with 2.1-ampere charger.
Overall, the Samsung Galaxy J7+ is a good mid-range smartphone. It costs around at 22,000 rupees or 345 dollars. Positive points- great design and build quality, better display, good cameras and better battery performance. Negative points- gaming performance is average, no USB type-C, no fast charging and pricey. Finally, I think in this price tag you have many options for buy a better smartphone instead of Galaxy J7+.
