2-minute Review [Positives]
  • Sturdy polycarbonate body with a metallic finish
  • Slim and light
  • The fingerprint sensor is quick in scanning fingers and unlocks the device quickly
  • Decent, bright 5.5-inch full HD display, though color reproduction could be better
  • Good set of dual front-facing cameras form the highlight of the phone - let you capture sharp selfies, as well as wide-angle group photos - the cameras perform especially well outdoors, with the photos look bright and sharp - this is arguably the best selfie camera in this price bracket
  • Good battery life - lasts the entire day with moderate usage
  • Reasonably good charging speed - fully charges in about an-hour-and-a-half
  • Attractive, sturdy, unibody design - easily one of the better looking devices in this price bracket - build quality and materials are flagship-grade
  • 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)
  • Decent performance in day-to-day use
  • Samsung's UI over Android is light, and works well - with some nice add-ons like social camera, and Samsung Pay
  • 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
  • Very good battery life - among the best in this price bracket - will comfortably last the day even with heavy use
  • Fairly ergonomic too
  • Separate slots for Dual SIMs and SD card (instead of a hybrid slot)
2-minute Review [Negatives]
  • ColorOS UI over Android is decent (and heavily inspired by iOS) but something simple such as stock Android would have been better
  • Powered by a mid-tier MediaTek chipset, which is decent but definitely isn’t as powerful and efficient as the Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 SoC that powers some of its competitors - the likes of the Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 and Lenovo P2
  • Rear camera could have been better - the photos are sometimes overexposed, and at other times appear dull, even in bright outdoor conditions
  • 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)
  • 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
