Samsung Galaxy J7 Pro 64GB
The wait is finally over. After leaks, rumors, speculations and a lot of hype, Samsung has finally released the first Samsung Galaxy J7 2017 smartphones, the Galaxy J7 Pro and the Galaxy J7 Max (be sure to check it out). These two are the twin successors of the 2016 J series, the Galaxy J7 Prime check it out https://phoneplacekenya.com/product/samsung-galaxy-j7-prime/ which indeed was and still is a prime smartphone just as its name suggests. This is an overview of Samsung Galaxy J7 Pro which is the Pro version on its predecessor. Let us check it out.
Design and build
Oh hail Samsung for the design of the Samsung Galaxy J7 Pro 64GB. This phone has a beast of a build. To start with, it has a full metal body which sees it weigh about 175 grams. With its 152.4 x 74.7 x 7.9 mm dimensions this is one smartphone designed for two handed operation, but with time you get used to it even on one hand. I see a vertical placed camera with an LED flash on the back, with Samsung branding, the front features the typical Samsung home cum fingerprint scanner, two touch capacitive keys on its sides, a selfie camera, a sensor, an earpiece and a flash. The speaker is places right above the power button on the right side of this phone while the volume rocker and sim/SD card trays are on the left. Cc Samsung: Make a statement with its stunning metal body and a super sleek design. Not to forget, this phone is ip54 splash resistant.
A screen to body ratio of 73.3 percent and 1080 x 1920 pixels (~401 ppi pixel density) resolution. The screen is 5.5 inches and it is a Super AMOLED capacitive touchscreen that supports both multi touch and 16 million colors. It is Samsung, and it is a 2017 smartphone, what else would you expect from a Super Amoled display panel? You already know, rich colors, deep detail and just an overall impressive one. Visibility in direct sunlight is excellent and the viewing angles are also stretched. This is one display that will not let anyone down.
Another interesting area with the Samsung Galaxy J7 Pro. First I’ll mention, you get the option of a new feature called the social camera which allows you to share the photos and videos you take instantly. You also get to edit the photos as soon as you take them without exiting the app. Cool right?
We get two very good cameras on the Galaxy J7 Pro, a 13 MP, f/1.7, autofocus with LED flash primary camera and another 13 MP, f/1.9, LED flash front facing shooter. We see flash on both cameras so low light conditions, whether with the main or selfie shooter thou shall get good images. They are impressive and give nice photos.
Video recording stands at 1080p@30fps. Camera features like geo-tagging, touch focus, face detection, panorama, HDR are all included in the software.
Performance and memory
For the first time in the J series of smartphones we see a galaxy J shipping with Android 7.0 (Nougat) with Samsung’s Grace UI. It has an Exynos 7870 Octa chipset (Samsung’s own), an Octa-core 1.6 GHz Cortex-A53 CPU and a Mali-T830 MP2 GPU.
Internal memory is 64 GB, 3 GB RAM and can be expanded up to 128GB with an SD card.
A fast phone it is that handles multi-tasking with a breeze.
*Samsung has also included Samsung Pay with the Galaxy J7 Pro.
It packs a non-removable Li-Ion 3600 mAh battery. Good capacity this one I applaud Samsung for that. Should last you up to 2 days depending on your usage.
Connectivity and network
The Samsung Galaxy J7 Pro supports Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Wi-Fi Direct, hotspot, Bluetooth 4.1, GPS with A-GPS, GLONASS and comes with microUSB 2.0, USB On-The-Go.
Network: GMS 2G, HSPA 3G and LTE 3G.
The speaker is a good sounding one and is well placed, it has support for Vibration; MP3, WAV ringtones alert types and has the 3.5mm jack.
It has lived up to the expectation the Samsung Galaxy J7 Pro 64GB. It is an improvement over its predecessor with improved camera, build and performance. Solid phone it is and I boldly recommend it. You get to choose either a black or gold one.
