Samsung J7+ Hands-on, First Impressions
Samsung has released a new member of their famous J7 family of smartphones. Meet the Galaxy J7+, the company’s latest mid-range contender.
Dominating the front of the device is the 5.5-inch Super AMOLED display with Full HD resolution. Located on top of it is the 16MP f/1.9 front camera with LED flash. Between those two is the receiver.
Down below we have the navigation buttons and the fingerprint scanner that doubles as a home button.
On the top part, we have the noise canceling microphone.
Moving on to the left side of the phone we can find the volume rockers and the hybrid nano-SIM tray.
At the right side are the power button and speaker grill.
Looking at the bottom we can find the other mic, the micro-USB port, and the 3.5mm headphone jack.
Flipping the phone on its back we’ll see the dual 13MP f/1.7 + 5MP f/1.9 rear cameras accompanied by its LED Flash.
In the hands, the J7+ feels well built, a bit hefty, smooth yet easy to grip. The 5.5-inch screen doesn’t feel like its too big because of its thin bezels at the side.
With its 2.39GHz MediaTek Helio P20 octa-core, 4GB of RAM, 32GB of storage powered by a 3000mAh battery the J7+ is no slouch when it comes to performance. The response rate is snappy and can handle multitasking really well even when using the split-screen mode. The facial recognition works great on the J7+ but the response rate could be better.
Samsung claims that the J7+ has comparable camera quality to a DSLR. And it might be, but we’ll know more once we review the handset in full, for now here are some sample shots.
