Hardware and Performance
The device is fueled by the midrange Exynos 7870 octa-core processor which clocks at 1.6 GHz and 3 GB of RAM. It packs in 16 GB of built-in storage expandable through a microSD card up to 256 GB.
The Exynos 7870 — comparable to the Snapdragon 625 — manages to sail through most of the regular activities with ease. But when it comes to hardcore processing, you might encounter a tiny lag here and there.
What’s more, this leads us to the theme of gaming. While the vast majority of the easygoing diversions like Mario Run or Township can be played effectively, it’s with the high realistic amusements that the execution drop is huge.
Talking about the unique finger impression sensor, the turnaround time is brilliant. At first, I was somewhat distrustful about it, being a long-standing admirer of OnePlus 3/3T’s unique mark sensor, be that as it may, the Galaxy J7 Pro has abandoned me inspired with its exactness and reaction time.
Apart from Samsung Pay, the second important feature was the camera, rather the Social Camera. But before, we get down to it, let’s go through the specs first. The Samsung Galaxy J7 Pro is fitted with two 13-megapixel cameras at the front and at the back. And the highlight of the rear 13-megapixel camera is the aperture. A wide aperture of f/1.7 means bright and vivid pictures and true to it, the J7 Pro manages to capture pictures which are crisp in normal lighting conditions.
In any case, low-light photography is a genuine test for any camera and sadly, the J7 Pro comes up short at it wretchedly. For one, the concentration simply doesn’t appear to sit right, bringing about pictures which are hazy and grainy.
Another sore spot is the large scale center. The camera battles to concentrate near to articles and as a general rule, you will arrive up with a hazy shot. This circumstance can be turned away if the separation between the protest and the camera is expanded, yet at that point, the importance of Macro is shockingly lost.
Overall, the Samsung Galaxy J7 Pro can be seen as a great addition to the Samsung J series with its stylish design, Super AMOLED display, and decent battery life. But then, it’s the price which is a tad much considering the average camera performance.
At a time when the Pakistani smartphone market is flooded with phones Oppo F3 or the Huawei P10 Lite at a comparatively lesser price, it remains to be seen whether the Galaxy J7 Pro is able to beat the competition with the brand name alone.
Moreover, the charger that comes with the J7 Pro shells out an output of 5V and 1.55A instead of the standard output of 5V and 2A, found in most of the smartphones in this price range.
