Samsung Galaxy J7 Pro First Impressions




We recently got our hands on one of Samsung’s upcoming devices for the Philippines, the Galaxy J7 Pro. It’s the cousin of the Galaxy J7 (2017) with some differences. Let’s check it out in our first impressions below.

The Galaxy J7 Pro looks just like the Galaxy J7 (2017) that was recently announced. One the front, it has a 5.5-inch Super AMOLED Full HD display, along with the earpiece and 13MP camera with LED flash placed just above it.

Down below are the physical home button that doubles as a fingerprint scanner, and a couple of capacitive keys on its left and right side for navigation. Mounted on top of the whole thing is a scratch-resistant glass with curved edges.

Placed on its left side are the power/lock button and the loudspeaker.

While on the right are the volume buttons and a couple of trays that can accommodate two SIM cards and a microSD card, which is a good thing.

Down at the bottom, are the microphone, microUSB port (versus the USB-C on the J7 2017), and headset jack.

Flip it on its back and you’ll see the 13MP camera and LED flash. Also visible here are two antenna bands which actually looks good on the device as it gives character to an otherwise plain-looking back.

On the hand, the J7 Pro looks and feels premium thanks to its metal unibody design. Meaning when you hold, all you are touching is glass and metal. The rounded edges and corners also make it comfortable in the hands.

What’s missing on the J7 Pro though is splash-resistance which is a handy feature to have. The rest are similar such as the Exynos 7870 CPU, 3GB RAM, Android Nougat, and 3,600mAh battery.

Samsung Galaxy J7 Pro specs:
5.5-inch Super AMOLED display @ 1920 x 1080 pixels

  7. melvin says:

  8. Baldo says:

    May flash sa front cam. Nougat instrad na marshmallow. F1.7 sa rear cam instead of f2.2. 3600mah battery instead na 3300.

  9. Asma Harshi says:

    What makes the Samsung Galaxy J7 Pro stand out of the crowd is the design of the antenna bands at the top and bottom of the rear panel coupled with the flushed camera module, which is surely a head turner, though the front of the device resembles strongly with Galaxy S7

  10. Princess says:

    .Does it have led light notification?

  11. Tara says:

    Sa lahat ng sinasabi na non-sense ang upgrade ng j7 pro did u do ur research well? Obvious kayong mga C-brand promoter/lover/Whatever. Oppo at Vivo bukod sa parehas ba China brand at factory madali pang malobat. Pinagmamalaki nyo na malinaw yung camera kasi ang ganda nyo sa camera ang puti purong filter kase. At ang isa pang malupit, kahit anung model ng c-brand nyo kahit taasan pa nila ng 10GB ram nyan DDR1 lang naman meaning The cheapest veraion ng Ram. J series nga DDR2 na F3 nyo DDR1 Pa din kaya pansin nyo pa-open nyo ng 3 apps si oppo hindi na nya kaya kasi maghahang na XD. Si Samsung lang po ang may pinaka mataas na DDR version na makikita nyo po sa s7 at S8.

    • Eymann says:

      oppo and vivo are most likely the same lang cla. tingnan mo naman cla parang iphone rip-off lang kasi almost the same na yung OS nila..

  12. santo maldito says:

    daming mga tanga, ano daw ikina “pro” neto versus sa j7 2016. marunong ba kayo magbasa ng specs mga bobo?

  13. Pooch says:

    Gorilla glass din ba ang j7 pro

  14. Rf says:

    Downside ng j7 pro walang notification light pero kapalit nmn ay always on display..hindi pa malinaw kung gorilla glass screen nya..pero sulit sakin dahil may free woofer ako na worth3k at matagal malowbat nung nag games ko mg medium details ng heroes evolved, mobile legend at coc

    • grei says:

  17. Myke says:

    So far iilan lang ung nakita kong maaayos na comment. Puro bobong comments halos lahat. Hahaha.. Obvious na ung difference ayaw pang maniwala, eh di bumili kau ng lahat ng phone para malaman nyo. Syempre kanya kanyang marketing strat ang mga companies. Hays.. Akala ko makakatulong pagbada ko ng comments.

  18. ako toh says:

    malaki ang difference ng J7 Prime/J7 sa J7 Pro… sa J7 Prime TFT lang ang display.. Super Amoled sa J7 Pro.. battery 3600 sa PRO at 3300 lang sa Prime… sa network 2CA na ang Pro.. sa Prime hindi.. then sa camera both 13mp with led flash ang rear at front.. ang Prime 13/8mp read/front… big factor ang Capture The Night features ng J7 Pro… check nyo sa Samsung site.. or sa ibang website na nagbibigay ng comparative analysis sa mga mobile phones… kung mas upgraded ang gusto nyo.. get Samsung A7 2017…

    bought J7 Pro and I LOVE IT!

    • Stefanie says:

      Ask ko Lang Maganda ba talaga gmitin Ang amsung j7 pro? Naghahanap kasi ako Ng bagong phone kaya medyo busisi talaga Ang pagbabasa ko para worth Ang pagbili ko. .Thanks!

    • meowchi says:

      For me I am satisfied with my purchase. For starters i am not a heavy-user. So hindi ako nakaka experience ng heating problem. My Most used apps are fb, messenger, browser, and instagram. I also dont use my j7 pro for games.

      Pros:
      •Always on Display is useful for me. Kasi di ko na kailangang buksan ang phone para malaman kung may noti.
      •photo quality is good even in low light.

      Major Con for me is that the front cam is always on auto focus. If your hands are not steady high chance na blurry ang shots. But the quality is great, better actually than my friend’siphone 6. So to get that perfect selfie/groufie you really need steady hands. Practice makes perfect cguro, nasanay na rin ako katagalan.

      So these are my opinions lang naman. :)

  20. sa tingin ko the term PRO refers to the “camera” , phone manufacturers ngayon tinatarget nila ung mahilig mag selfie-groufie-fietang ina.. mas maganda capture ng cam sabi nila haha

  21. sa tingin ko the term PRO refers to the “camera” , phone manufacturers ngayon tinatarget nila ung mahilig mag selfie-groufie-fietang ina.. mas maganda capture ng cam sabi nila haha. regardless the overall performance ng phone. ok lang naman ung china phones kahit mawala o masira at least mura, maka txt & call ka lang. :P

  22. Arnel says:

    Just bought mine and dissapointed ng konti sa camera as compared to my current HuaweiP9. Satisfied nmn ako sa price nya at sa dual active SIM plus microSD as compared to my HP9.

  23. Rey says:

    I have my new samsung j7 pro with 32gb internal storage. But i have noticed almost half of the storage was consumed by user data even though i just have 1gb apps and no any other media saved in my device. How does it happen that my free storage is more or less 18gb?

  24. BP says:

    It is pre-installed application sir..ganun naman talaga lahat..even iphone 2gbram free,even it says 2gb lng cya visible (but technically it is around 3-4gb not visible) kaya ganun na din cya kamahal..sa ibang phone kc visible 4gb pro yung free, around 1.8gb, sa 3gbram around 1.2gb free

  25. shao says:

    hi, pwede magtanung, yung front cam kasi naka mirror sya wala bang unmirror?????
