2-Minute Review

Let's cut through the noise, and get to the crux of it. 4 Expert Reviews analysed and summarised by the PhoneCurry Editorial Team, in a short and sweet 2-minute review.

Design

  • Well built
  • 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
  • No fingerprint sensor

Display

  • 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

Software

  • Also lacks notification LED, gyroscope and a magnetometer or magnetic sensor

Performance

  • Quite good at heat management - doesn't heat up even when put under a lot of stress
  • Overall performance is good, but the phone is still underpowered compared to its top competition

Camera

  • Decent camera
  • Average camera

Audio

  • Loudspeaker is not particularly loud, and having it on the back makes it cumbersome still

Battery

  • Great battery life (can easily last over a day)

More

  • Useful "Ultra Power Saving" mode
