Samsung Galaxy J7 is another awesome smartphone from Samsung that was released in 2016. It comes with amazing features but the design is off as it features an uninspiring and boring design and not so comfortable to grip.
Aside the design, the phone’s battery life is good and is can last through out the day on average usage.
The phone has cool camera both at the rear and the front, the front camera comes with an LED flash that gives support in both in the day and in low light condition. The snapping experience is not supported by a finger print sensor as the phone does not come with any.
The absence of fingerprint sensor is not so good as phones like Motorola Moto G4 Plus which happens to be in similar price range comes with fingerprint sensor for users convenience.
Samsung Galaxy J7 smartphone runs on Exynos 5 processor with speed clocked at 1.6GHz coupled with a mali-T830 graphic processing unit whose performance can be compared to that of Apple iPhone 6; the device differs in RAM size, while iPhone 6 sports a 3GB ram, J7 has a 2GB RAM size because of this small RAM size,
As a side note, the Samsung Galaxy J7 mobile phone may experience lag while running.

The super AMOLED screen has a small 720p resolution, despite this fact, it is still able to give off a colorful and bright display.
There is nothing inspiring about the design of Galaxy J7, the device is designed with brushed metal which looks very much like plastic quite difficult to tell what the material is actually is.
Another thing about the Samsung Galaxy J7 design that does not really go well with me is the huge 4G logo and the removable back that has a smooth and slippery texture which makes it a bit difficult to grip.
Samsung Galaxy J7 is quite slim at 7.8mm which is a plus to its design. The smartphone sports a volume key on the left, power button on the right, the primary microphone, microUSB 2.0 port and the headphone jack at the bottom.
The front has a physical home button, capacitive keys for back and recent applications and also the front camera accompanied with a LED flash.

Samsung Galaxy J7 has both a rear or primary camera and a front or secondary camera. Samsung Galaxy J7 comes with 13-megapixel rear or primary camera and 5-megapixel front or secondary camera for additional camera support.
The front camera is really cool and better than the rear camera. The front camera comes with an LED flash that supports snapping of photo during the night of in low light. The rear camera does not come with an LED flash but can still give off a decent photo when outdoor.
Battery Capacity and Sensors
Samsung Galaxy J7 powered by a removable Li-Ion 3300 mAh to power all the above features and more like the connectivity options which includes Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, NFC, 4G LTE and sensors like Proximity Sensor, Accelerometer.
