2-minute Review [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
  • Decent display
  • Samsung's Touchwiz UI is fluid and smooth
  • Useful S Bike Mode, if you do a lot of bike riding
  • Great battery life - easily lasts a full day
  • Decent, fast rear camera
2-minute Review [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
  • Average build quality
  • Uninspiring design
  • The texture on the back (emulating a leather like finish) looks tacky
  • No ambient light sensor
  • Average overall speed/performance, that falls quite a bit behind the top performers in this price bracket
  • Poor front (selfie) camera
  • No fingerprint sensor
