Samsung Galaxy J7 Mini Review: Large, Vibrant Screen for Under $250
Source: Tom's Guide English EN→zh-CN
If you're looking for a sub-$250 phone that has the look, feel and features of Samsung's Galaxy line, the Samsung Galaxy J7 sounds like a strong choice. Price-sensitive shoppers will appreciate the large display, quality camera, promising battery life and special Samsung features. However, users who want a sharper screen should consider the Huawei Honor 5X, which packs a 1080p display for less than $200. Those who want a Samsung phone with a gyroscope, better audio quality, water resistance or a high-res screen should expand their budgets for the Galaxy S7 or consider getting a refurbished Galaxy S5.

Samsung Galaxy J7 (2016) Review: Loses Out To Chinese Competitors
Source: Techtree.com English EN→zh-CN
Priced at Rs 16,000, the Galaxy J7 (2016) improves upon its predecessor. It comes with a sturdy metal frame, rich OLED screen, and great battery life. Samsung's software too brings a few neat features to the table. However, in terms of raw power and camera, it is nowhere near the similarly priced phones. In fact, the more affordable phones such as the Le Eco Le 2, Lenovo ZuK Z1, and even Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 outperform it on many fronts. Add the silly omission of the ambient sensor to the list, and I would advice to give this handset a miss.

A long lasting and basic metal frame smartphone
Source: Tech Nave English EN→zh-CN
The Galaxy J7 (2016) is not really a bad phone, I think most Samsung fans will definitely enjoy using it especially for its amazing battery performance, nice additional memory storage and maybe the ultra saving modes features too for those who are watching their Internet quota. You also get fairly nice looking metal frame Samsung phone and everything else that comes with it such as the Galaxy Life vouchers and various other apps (bloatware).

73% The gateway to the Galaxy

Make no mistake, with an asking price of RM799 for the J5 and RM999 for the J7, you're pretty much paying a premium for the Samsung brand instead of actual performance. If you're one of those people that wouldn't be caught dead with a phone that isn't from a well recognized international brand, the J5 and J7 can be considered. However, if the Samsung name doesn't mean all that much to you, then you should probably opt for one of the many entry/mid-level smartphones that come from brands located in mainland China.

For $230, the Samsung Galaxy J7 is a very capable phablet held back only by mixed camera performance and lackluster call quality. Unless you're keen on a stylus, the J7 is a better buy than the $180 Stylo 2, thanks to its more powerful processor, dual-band Wi-Fi, and NFC support. It's also a better deal than the aging ZTE Boost Max+ ($199.99), which has outdated hardware and software. Short of an expensive, high-end phone like the Apple iPhone 6s Plus$299.99 at Best Buy, you won't find a better phablet on Boost Mobile.

Samsung Galaxy J7 (2016) review
Source: GSM Arena English EN→zh-CN
So, Samsung have a new meal on the menu but it's the good old recipe. In fairness, the Galaxy J7 (2016) isn't one of the chef's best, so anyone can understand why it doesn't feature on the specials and why it isn't especially creative with the ingredients. Yet, it sure has some premium dressing. The Galaxy J7 (2106) has finally joined the club and benefits from the design language introduced by last season's flagships. The result is great build quality and looks that most people would enjoy.

After all is said, it’s time to draw the line and see how good the Galaxy J7 6 really is. It’s an improvement in terms of design in the affordable segment, with its metal frame, but the plastic back cover feels cheap and not on par even with cheap Chinese Android phones these days. The lack of a fingerprint scanner is also surprising these days. The display on the J7 6 also falls short of expectations: its colors are off, its a bit on the dim side, and - shockingly - lacks an auto-brightness setting. Audio quality via the loudspeaker is also a disappointment.

The Samsung Galaxy J7 has great battery life, but that's not enough to recommend the device. It's underpowered, has a sub-par camera and doesn't look good. It's not an ideal buy. The Gionee Marathon M5 has better battery life, while the Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 offers better performance. The Moto G4 Plus has a better camera.

Style and options that make the mid-range even more attractive
Source: Laptop Media English EN→zh-CN
Samsung Galaxy J7 (2016) is a great example of what a 2016 mid-range device should be. The smartphone offers pleasant and elegant design, Super AMOLED display with HD resolution that still provides bright and contrasty colors, and an octa-core Exynos CPU that not only ensures high performance but also keeps temperatures exceptionally low. Apart from that, it is very easy on the 3300 mAh battery that impressed us with its amazing results. An undeniable advantage is the latest Android version which is supplemented by some additional features of Samsung’s UI. Additionally, camera performance is decent, the photos taken with it are good considering the price-range, and it also provides a settings menu with manual options and modes. In a nutshell, Samsung Galaxy J7 (2016) is a mid-range device with no drawbacks.
