Reviews for the Samsung Galaxy J7 Max 2017

The Galaxy J7 Max is a somewhat disappointing showing from Samsung. While we liked the general sturdy feel of the device, overall camera performance and battery life, the rest of the device feels lackluster in comparison.

Samsung Galaxy J7 Max Review – A big leap forward
Source: Gadget Diary English
Samsung Galaxy J7 Max is a competitive offering and is a big leap forward for J-series phones. If you are looking for a branded option and like the idea of some extra screen real-estate, the J7 Max is worth considering for under 18,000 INR.

Samsung Galaxy J7 Max First Impressions
Source: The Mobile Indian English
To wrap up, the Samsung Galaxy J7 Max looks promising and comes loaded with some interesting features at a price tag of Rs 17,900. However, the big screen size makes it a bit difficult to hold it. The brand has focused on the camera as well and it would be interesting to see whether how well it performs when compared to other camera-centric smartphones present in the market.

Comment

Model: The Samsung J series is well known as Samsung’s budget lineup but don’t be fooled by its moniker. While it may not be able to compete with its S series cousins, it sure is a market mover when it comes to budget conscious users. Its 5.7-inch frame is tastefully sized to most user hands, but it sure isn’t compact by a long shot. The overall take of its chassis and design gives it a nice metallic feel without feeling too cheap or too premium. With its unibody design it is quite well built. Its 5.7-inch screen might not be the best in the market, but it serves its purpose by being adequately bright and sharp. Overall color reproduction proves tastefully vibrant although color temperature-wise it may seem a little washed but not that most budget users would notice anyways. Despite being a J series smartphone, it is actually the crème of the crop in its series. One aspect which is subtly high performing is its camera which excels in good lighting and even outdoors where most budget phones tend to suffer from over exposure. However, in low light the camera unfortunately performs rather poorly. Users need to give and take a little especially considering its marketed price. The only consolation to its camera is a reasonably engaging camera software.

The Samsung Galaxy J7 Max 2017 is equipped with a Helio P20 8 core based SoC which is still a capable performer especially when it comes to heat management and power consumption, which is somewhat respectable. It is also equipped with 4 GB of RAM and 32 GB of storage, which should be plenty for most average users. If users want more there is a microSD card slot, too. As the J series of devices tends to be marketed towards the growing smartphone market, it also has a dual sim functionality, which should be useful for users who does not want to be carrying multiple devices. An additional brief overview of its other features is the inclusion of a fingerprint reader although this should be expected since this device is somewhat between the upper entry level and mid-range devices. In terms of audio quality, the speakers are quite punchy. However, when tuned up to the maximum, they can sound slightly odd due to its overpowering highs over its mids. On the power side of things, the Samsung Galaxy J7 Max 2017 is equipped with a 3300 mAh battery which should last for a day on moderate to heavy usage. This is reasonable considering its hardware is a mix of power sipping components and hard hitters. However, users might be disappointed that quick charging is not supported. If you are a user who likes the idea of a large screen real estate but aren’t willing to shell out for a flagship the Samsung Galaxy J7 Max 2017 might be for you.

This display is quite big for a smartphone but frequently used for smartphones.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

Only few smartphones are more lightweight than this.
