    Hey ,
    I was using sony earlier but was very dissapointed because of the heating issues and battery backup(mediatek-family device)

    This new samsung J7 is really a beautiful and powerful device.
    1.) Screen resolution is 720p sAMOLED ( display is crisp and bright enough )
    Honestly i felt like this device has full HD display.
    2.) Monster Battery – 3300mAh after full charge 30 hours backup (usage calling, whatsapp, facebook, insta.)
    3.) Touch – very responsive and fluid smooth…
    4.) Voice clearity – good enough ( on call ) ( loud enough – for music )
    5.) Super fast internet – ( 4G support )
    6.) No Heating Issues with games like assphalt 8 : airborne , battle gunship , snipper 3D…
    7.) Camera – rear & front cameras are pretty good , shoots beautilful pictures and videos are superb too ( HD recording )
    8.) HD video playback ( 1080p reso. ) super smooth rendering and no lagging issues.
    9.) Octa core processor – exynos 7870 chipset makes it super cool and fast.
    10.) My Favourite – All Microsoft Office Apps ( word , excel, powerpoint, note.. ) easy to make and edit doc’s.
    OVERALL :-
    Decent and powerful device,
    Very beautifully designed,
    Light in weight,
    Feature rich device 😉

    I see a lot of positive reviews here.Makes it look like a perfect phone.I would like to highlight some cons in my review
    1. 720p display
    In the generation where 10k price phones have 1080p displays, a 720p display in 5.5 inch screen is simply ridiculous.Viewing angles are worse.My display gives a rainbow-ish tint when viewed sideways(might be AMOLED display flaw ?). On the flip side, lesser resolution requires less power from battery, so its a trade-off.

    2.No magnetic sensor
    This means maps wont rotate according to your motion. VR videos on facebook won’t work.In the generation of Oculus and VR, this is unacceptable

    3.No notification LED
    My previous phone has a notification LED & I now recognise its importance

    4.Poor UI/UX with samsung touchwiz
    The design of touchwiz is very sub-standard compared to stock android,ios or HTC sense.

    Ridiculous amount of inbuilt apps from Samsung which eat up the already less 16GB internal memory.Camera app is very laggy.

    6.Poor quality speaker and bundled earphones
    Speakers on the phone are very bad.So is the sound quality though earphones(tested with good quality earphones)

    7. Charging wire is too short.
    So short that it can’t reach the phone on your desk from standard plug point

    8.Heats up a little
    Gets hot , but I think it is OK with smartphones.

    9.Slippery/Soft back and sides
    With no cases yet available on the market, this is a big issue with that huge phone size

    10.No backlight on capacitive keys

    11.Build quality looks cheap
    Even with the aluminium on the sides, it does not feel premium to hold. Packaging of this phone and accessories is so very cheap.Check some unboxing videos to see it yourself.

    12.Bit costly
    This is debatable, but with these many cost cuttings this price is nowhere justify able.
    1. Very good camera
    2. Front flash for you selfie experts
    3. Good battery life
    3. Light weight, thin and super fast
    4. Good after-sales service by Samsung

    Overall Verdict : Good phone if you know what you are getting into.

  5. Rated 4 out of 5


    Just now i have received my J7 6. Earlier I was used J7, comparing to the J7 6 to old J7 it has minor changes but powerful changes i.e Battery,Processor,Ram,Marshmallow (OS),Metalic Design except these changes remain all are same. Some of the pitfalls still came with J7 6 from old J7
    those are
    1. Less ringtone volume.
    2. Call Quality
    3. not full HD

    These are the observations i had done. I will post my complete review after 1 month.
