Samsung Galaxy J7

 

The Samsung Galaxy J7 is an affordable midrange phablet on Boost Mobile that offers good bang for the buck compared with rivals.

Affordable. Solid performance. Latest Android software. Rich, bright display. Dual-band Wi-Fi and NFC. Replaceable battery and expandable storage.

Mixed camera performance. Subpar call quality. Some bloatware.

Conclusions For $230, the Samsung Galaxy J7 is a very capable phablet held back only by mixed camera performance and lackluster call quality. Unless you're keen on a stylus, the J7 is a better buy than the $180 Stylo 2, thanks to its more powerful...

Samsung stuck to the basics with the Galaxy J7 V and I think that's the device's one major failing. Many competing phones in this price range now include at least something extra, like a metal body, dual camera, or at least a fingerprint reader. The J7...
