2-minute Review [Negatives]
  • Average loudspeaker
  • 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
