Editor's Note [Positives]
  • Well built
  • Quite good at heat management - doesn't heat up even when put under a lot of stress
  • Decent camera
  • Great battery life (can easily last over a day)
  • Useful "Ultra Power Saving" mode
  • Good build quality and design
  • Polycarbonate back that has a smooth matte finish which looks and feels good
  • Fits perfectly in hand and isn’t slippery either, offering a nice grip when holding
  • Good Super AMOLED display - good color reproduction, sharpness, viewing angles and an above average sunlight readability
  • Customizable display mode - Adaptive display, AMOLED cinema, AMOLED photo, and Basic
  • Samsung's custom UI over Android adds useful features like the Ultra data saving mode, and the S Bike mode
  • Butter smooth performance without any noticeable lag
  • Decent camera - the daylight shots and macro shots are impressive with fine amount of details and sharpness - low light performance is average though
  • Front facing LED flash for the front camera
  • Decent sound quality via headphones
  • Good call quality/reception
  • Decent battery life - good for one full day - with moderate use
  • Also comes with Ultra power saver mode, which saves juices by applying a greyscale theme to your home screen and limiting the number of usable apps
Editor's Note [Negatives]
  • Looks cheap and utilitarian, compared to the much more premium designs of its competitors
  • The dimensions are a tad too big, at least for people with small hands
  • Display on the J7 falls short of expectations - colors are a little off, it's a bit on the dim side, and lacks an auto-brightness setting
  • No Gorilla glass protection on the display
  • Overall performance is good, but the phone is still underpowered compared to its top competition
  • Average camera
  • Loudspeaker is not particularly loud, and having it on the back makes it cumbersome still
  • No fingerprint sensor
  • Also lacks notification LED, gyroscope and a magnetometer or magnetic sensor
  • No fingerprint sensor
  • No notification light, which is present in most mid-range smartphones nowadays
  • The audio output on the speaker is on the low side
  • No quick charging technology on the battery
