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
  • Solid build
  • Well designed - the metal body and the 2.5D Corning Gorilla Glass spread across the front, give it a premium feel
  • Rounded sides make it comfortable to hold
  • The fingerprint scanner is generally quick and easy to use
  • Very good display - bright and vivid with decent sunlight legibility - great for watching videos and games
  • Comes with Samsung's TouchWiz UI on top of Android, which is now lighter than before, and works well
  • Useful new features include S Power Planning (battery management) and S Secure (privacy), apart from Ultra-data saving mode and S bike mode
  • Good all-round performance - handles almost everything you throw at it - including heavy games, and multi-tasking
  • Decent rear and front cameras under daylight conditions - most of the shots taken by the smartphone have decent colours and are crisp - and the handset is able to lock focus quickly
  • Good loudspeaker
  • Good audio quality
  • Decent battery life - lasts a day with moderate use
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
  • Low light camera performance could have been better
  • The fingerprint scanner works well mostly, but can be iffy at times
  • Tends to crash/heat-up occasionally when put under stress
  • Lacks support for quick charging (which is present in some of its competitors)
