2-minute Review [Positives]
  • Attractive, sturdy, unibody design - easily one of the better looking devices in this price bracket - build quality and materials are flagship-grade
  • Fairly ergonomic too
  • Very good sAMOLED display, arguably the best in this price bracket - high resolution, good viewing angles, good colour reproduction - videos look excellent - and sunlight legibility is great too (on par with more expensive phones, and better than Samsung's own Galaxy J7 Max in this price bracket)
  • Samsung's UI over Android is light, and works well - with some nice add-ons like social camera, and Samsung Pay
  • Decent performance in day-to-day use
  • Good rear camera - pretty similar to the one on the very good J7 Max - making it one of the best cameras in this price bracket - and a good shooter even for low light situations
  • Very good audio output from both headphones, and loudspeaker
  • Separate slots for Dual SIMs and SD card (instead of a hybrid slot)
  • Very good battery life - among the best in this price bracket - will comfortably last the day even with heavy use
  • Beautiful, polished, luxurious design - with a lot of attention to detail
  • The curved back and sides make it comfortable to hold
  • Nice, compact size
  • Dust Proof and Water Resistant
  • Beautiful, high-end display, with near-perfect color accuracy
  • The new "always-on" display feature is a nice touch, and takes the hassle out of checking out the time
  • Top-notch, chart-leading performance backed by the powerful hardware
  • Samsung's Touchwiz UI over Android is now even lighter, and has less bloat
  • Brilliant, awesome, fast camera, with OIS, that does well even in low-light conditions
  • Very good battery life
  • microSD storage slot
  • Quick charging, and wireless charging support
  • Good call quality
  • Very good audio quality
2-minute Review [Negatives]
  • Performance could certainly have been better, and while its good enough in daily use, it's not quite what you would call snappy, and it doesn't match up to its top competitors - so, if your only use case is casual social networkings, emails, videos - then the phone will do fine, else there will be better options in this price bracket
  • While the rear camera is pretty good, it does sometimes take too long to focus, and sometimes underexposes pictures, and that takes away from the dependability a little bit
  • Front camera is good too, but it is focused a bit too close, which can lead to blurry shots when the phone is held a bit far
  • No support for fast charging
  • If design, battery life and brand name are the main criteria then the Galaxy J7 Pro is a good choice, but it has some tough competition from the likes of OnePlus 3T (more powerful + more dependable camera), and Moto G5S Plus on the lower end (almost as good in all criteria, at a lower price)
  • The shiny metal-and-glass back is a smudge magnet
