We"ll be reviewing the J730GM/DS version, the GM signifying it"s the one for India if you"re khổng lồ blindly trust Samsung"s websites. As the DS lettering indicates, it"s a dual SIM phone.

The rest of the Galaxy J7 Pro is very much lượt thích the J7 (2017), which we"ve sầu already reviewed. You"re getting a Super AMOLED 5.5-inch display with pixels galore - alright, it"s FullHD, but most of last year"s J7s were 720p. Coming straight from last year is the chipphối, but then the 14nm Exynos 7870 was ahead of its time baông chồng then - for a midrange SoC, that is - so it still makes sense in 2017 và will probably remain relevant in 2018, too.

Our review unit comes with 3GB of RAM & 32GB of storage, but 64GB versions are also available. You can theoretically save sầu some cash và get this 32GB version, as there"s a microSD slot, fully dedicated one at that so you won"t be sacrificing the second SIM slot.

We weren"t exactly thrilled about the camera when we reviewed the J7 (2017), but it got the job done, & the Pro receives the same 13MP f/1.7 thiết đặt. For selfies, you"re also getting 13MPhường resolution and a flash.

Main shortcomings

Same GPU as the J7 (2016), yet twice as many pixels on the screen microUSB port isn"t the least bit Pro No quick charging

With all the good stuff the Galaxy J7 Pro shares with the J7 (2017), there"s no escaping the cons. For one, the sizeable 3,600mAh battery will take ages to lớn fill up without any fast charging. And the power-efficient chipphối isn"t all too powerful, particularly in the graphics department - the Galaxy J7 (2016) could get away with it since it"s got a lower-res display, but the FullHD displays of this year"s J7s would be happier with a bit more oomph.

And the one that seems the easier bit lớn resolve - the microUSB port used on the Galaxy J7 Pro should have been USB-C khổng lồ keep up with the times. But hey, you can"t have it all, it seems.
