Samsung Galaxy J7 Pro Review: Looks good, feels good

Looks matter. Smartphones basically become an extension of your hand (I mean really, count the hours you have that phone on you and you’ll get my point) and if I’m going to spend that much time with a gadget, it may as well be with a handsome device. The Galaxy J7 Pro is exactly that.

The full metal body on the 5.5-inch screen looks and feels good on your hands. It has a nice weight to it that makes it feel premium despite its lowered price.

Button and port placements are still similar to the Galaxy J7 Prime: micro-USB and headphone jack at the bottom, volume buttons on the upper-left side, plus speakers and the lock/unlock button on the upper right. The fingerprint scanner-equipped physical home button is on the bottom chin, in between two capacitive buttons (back and recent apps).

The real star of this phone is its display. Its screen looks like a million bucks — okay, not a million but it does look really good (and I stress the “really”). The J7 Pro has an AMOLED screen, something only premium high-end phones are usually equipped with. Because of this, the Galaxy J7 is one of the first entry-level phones to have an Always On display — a feature I’ve found to be quite useful.

The J7 Pro is powered by a midrange Exynos processor, the same one that powered last year’s J7 Prime. Although this shouldn’t limit the phone’s capabilities for light to medium users, heavy smartphone users (such as myself) may be a little frustrated with app crashes (especially if you tend to leave most, if not all, apps open and running) and screen lags.

The phone has one SIM card slot and runs on Android 7.0 Nougat with 3GB of memory and 32GB of storage expandable up to 256GB. Its battery life is impressive with a capacity of 3600mAh, which lasted me almost 12 hours even on Wi-Fi.
