2-minute Review [Positives]
  • Well built - the phone looks and feels quite premium
  • Good, bright, large display - decent colour reproduction, good viewing angles - good videos and movie watching experience
  • Good, accurate fingerprint sensor
  • On the top of Android, is Samsung's new UI - Samsung Experience - it is more refined compared to TouchWiz UX - and continues to have a number of added software features like Games Launcher, one-handed operation mode, Multi-window mode, Direct call (to make a voice call by picking up and holding the device near your ear while viewing call, message, or contact details)
  • Smart alert (to set the device to alert you if you have missed calls or new messages when you pick up the device), Gesture support, Dual Messenger (lets you use two separate accounts for the same app such as Facebook, WhatsApp and more), Secure Folder, Samsung Pay Mini, and others
  • Decent speed/performance, similar to Snapdragon 625 powered devices in this price bracket - and a notch above the Helio P20 powered Galaxy J7 Max
  • Excellent rear camera in all lighting conditions, comparable to the Moto G5 Plus, which has otherwise been the top camera phone in this price bracket
  • White balance and dynamic range remains impressive in all situations
  • Good selfie camera too, with a front facing flash for low light selfies
  • Video recording quality is decent too (but the phone doesn’t have a secondary microphone so recorded audio is not crisp)
  • Audio through the bundled or third-party earphones is decent
  • Good call quality
  • Good Dual SIM management with Samsung's Smart Dual SIM feature (automatically forwards calls from the phone number on SIM 2, even if a user is on the phone with SIM 1’s number)
  • Decent battery life - lasts a day of average use (though its a notch below its cousin, the Galaxy J7 Max, because of a slightly more battery hungry processor)
  • Full metal unibody design, and good build quality
  • 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
  • Samsung's UI over Android 6.0 is neat and simple while adding a number of additional features like one-handed operation mode, smart alert makes the phone vibrate when you pick it up to notify you about missed calls and messages, easy mute, S bike mode, Ultra data saving mode, and locking/privacy options
  • Decent all-round performance - handles almost everything you throw at it - including 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
  • Video recording quality is decent too and audio is also crisp
  • Decent loudspeaker output
  • Good call quality
  • Good audio quality
  • Decent battery life - lasts a day with moderate use
2-minute Review [Negatives]
  • Pretty big for single-handed use - also a bit heavy at 179 grams - might not suit people with small hands
  • Lacks a notification LED light
  • Samsung's UI is pretty nice but it continues to have duplicate apps for things like mail and browser, which is unnecessary
  • Lacks fast charging, which is present in some of its competitors - takes about 2 and half hours to charge the phone
  • Lacks ambient light sensor, gyroscope and magnetic sensor
  • The fingerprint scanner works well mostly, but can be iffy at times
  • Low light camera performance could have been better
  • Tends to crash/heat-up occasionally when putting under stress
  • Lacks support for quick charging (which is present in some of its competitors)
