Reviews for the Samsung Galaxy J Max

70% Samsung Galaxy J Max Review – how badly you need a dual SIM 7-incher?
Source: Tech Magnifier English version
A smartphone is more handy and has obvious advantages over a tablet, but there are times when you might need a bigger screen to browse. You will get that on Samsung Galaxy J max, with a most simple Samsung design, software and solid build on a not-so-big form factor. But with a very basic display and a more basic hardware sneaked underneath, it would fail to entice a usual tablet user that needs both speed and a terrific display to look forward to. It is easily the tablet you can give a miss, except if you terribly need 4G capability with 2 SIM cards, and with that, the ability to expand your teeny-weeny internal storage, which would make Samsung J Max a little expensive but a perfectly apt choice.

It is a small display format for smartphones. You shouldn't be severely defective in vision, and you won't see much detail on the screen and only have a small resolution available. For that, the device should be small and handy, easy to transport.

70%: This rating is poor. More than three quarters of the models are rated better. That is rather not a purchase recommendation. Even if verbal ratings in this area do not sound that bad ("sufficient" or "satisfactory"), they are usually euphemisms that disguise a classification as a below-average laptop.
