A perfect choice for a mid-range Samsung smartphone

from LaptopMedia

Galaxy J7 (2017) is a worthy successor to last year’s Galaxy J7 as it brings improvements in several different areas and we can definitely describe it as one of the best offers in its price range. The smartphone comes with a renewed design, which includes a metal construction and nice curves at the edges. What’s more, here we also have a fingerprint sensor. The display is again 5.5-inch but now with Full HD resolution and support of Always on feature.

For a mid-ranger, it gets the job done

from PhoneArena

If you’re particularly fond of what Samsung does with Android – and they do a lot right – but simply don’t want to spend more than $300, then the J7 2017 is really your only choice. But the handset simply doesn’t pack much dollar-for-dollar value. With so many solid options, often offering more features and better performance, there’s never been a better time to try something new.

A solid midrange proposition

the Galaxy J7 (2017) is an excellent mid-range smartphone with above average specs. If the old chip is not an issue, it didn't ruin the overall experience, after all, then the new J7 has everything to become the new headliner for the series.
