Samsung’s Galaxy range of smartphones and tablets sets out to cater for all budgets, without compromising quality. The flagship S range takes the lead, of course, but following very closely behind is the more cost-conscious J range. The J7 heads up this particular product line, bringing mid-range smartphones firmly onto the heels of its flagship brethren. The Samsung Galaxy J7 achieved a Mr Aberthon ranking of 9.5. It is also covered by our amazing 14 Day Returns Policy for truly stress-free buying.
As with all Mr Aberthon devices, the Galaxy J7 comes fully unlocked from any network, making it available for use in over 160 countries worldwide.
Model Number: SM-J700T1
As time goes by, features that seem radical and head-turning often become the norm. Manufacturers constantly look for different ways to capture the attention of potential customers. What Samsung did, with the J range, is take many of the features of the flagship S range. They took the specs down by hardly anything, and produced a device that is as affordable as it is outstanding. Take the top of the J range, the J7, and you’re so close to the Galaxy S lineup that it practically doesn’t matter.
Of course, you’d expect some compromises, but it takes a fair bit of comparing to see any real material difference.
The 5.5” display is slightly lower spec, but still offers 720p HD viewing. It carries all the pop and saturation we’ve come to expect from the Super AMOLED screens used in almost all Samsung devices. 4G,
Wi-Fi with hotspot, Bluetooth, GPS and NFC are all here. So every connection choice you’ll ever need is right at your fingertips.
The camera is where it gets really interesting on the Galaxy J7. The 16MP rear camera has autofocus, face detection, panorama and HDR, as well as LED flash, and it’s the flash that adds the interest. Not on this excellent rear camera, but on the front. As well as being a very generous 5MP, the front camera also has its own, independent LED flash. No more selfies too dark to be of any use, and video calling just got a whole better. Video can also be captured on the rear camera at 1080p Full HD, ready for the big screen. Well, your TV, at least.
As operating systems mature, so the raw processing power of the device running them has to keep up with the extra demand, but the J7 takes the demands of Android in its stride. The Galaxy J7 has an 8 core processor doing most of the heavy computing, and a dedicated graphics processor to keep movies and games running with the silky smoothness they deserve.
All this is kept motoring along by a removable 3300mAh battery which provides 23 hours of talk time or 96 hours (that’s 4 days, if you’re counting) of music playback.
All these specs compare favorably with almost everything else in its class, so it’s only right that the Galaxy J7 should look as good as it performs. The usual clean, sharp lines of all Samsung smartphones is here, with a brushed aluminum look to the rear of the case adding a touch of class to the whole presentation.
The Samsung Galaxy J7 is an outstanding piece of hardware, lacking nothing you need from a mobile device of any kind. Does it have the prestige of the ‘S in front of it? No, but when you don’t need something…
