Do you want to sell or trade your Samsung Galaxy J7 (2017)?
Yes? Good, you’re at the right place.
But first, I need you to determine if you want to trade your phone for a better version, or if you want to sell it for cash?
After you decide, we’ll walk you through the steps to cash in or trade up.
In the meantime, let’s review your phone.
With advances in technology, mid-range smartphones have come a long way. Samsung has always been known for creating fantastic flagship phones. But their entry level phones are somewhat of a disappointment to say the least. However, Samsung’s strides for a worthy budget phone are finally showing dividends. And the Samsung Galaxy J7 (2017) marks the beginning of a new age for Samsung’s mid-ranger phones.
Abandoning the plastic body, Samsung went with a metal construction with silver bezel around the earpiece grill and home button. The metal body is more durable than glass and smugges way less. Symmetrical antenna accompanies the back, which enclosing the non-removable 3600 mAh Li-ion battery. By the way, you cannot remove the back. But no need to worry, the battery will last and the microSD card slot is exposed on the right.
Along with the microSD—which can hold up to 256GB of storage—is the volume rocker. It protrudes slightly and has a very tactile feedback. The right side houses the power/lock key and a metal speaker grill right above it. By placing the speakers on the side, your hands won’t muffle the sound in landscape mode. Even in portrait mode, body parts and objects can interfere with traditional placement of speakers. That problem is eradicated with the speakers being placed on the side.
Holding the phone feels good in hand. The thick rounded edges offer a decent grip. And the phone only weighs 6.38 oz.
Samsung really stepped their game up with the Super AMOLED screen. It’s a 5.5-inch Full HD display. Colors are vibrant and graphics are sharp. The resolution is 1920 x 1080 pixels with 401 PPI. With a pixel density that high, individual pixels are virtually undetectable by the naked eye. Therefore, there's no grain or pixelation. Also, the display is readable in direct sunlight.
Under the hood is the Android Nougat running the Experience UI. This is where Samsung really starts to separate from their old mediocre habits. Before, Samsung entry phones had an inferior UI. But the Galaxy J7 (2017) has the same UI as the flagship Galaxy S8. And although the J7 is missing a few swipe gestures, it has everything else. Some features include Secure Folder, Samsung Pass, and Bluelight Filter. There’s also AOD (Always On Display), which displays clock and recent messages without draining your battery supply.
Samsung Galaxy J7’s operating system is powered by the Exynos 7870 processor. Because the J7 has a Full HD screen, this chip is a disappointment. You can’t get the full potential of the screen when gaming or watching movies. In other words, the processor is fast enough for 720p but not so fast for 1080p. Gaming the latter results in a significant drop in framerate. However, the 3GB of RAM does help a little. Browsing and switching between apps is smooth as butter.
You won’t be too disappointed with the Galaxy J7’s rear camera. It’s a 13 MP camera with a wide f/1.7 aperture lens. What prevents this camera from being excellent is that it uses the same sensor as the J5. So you’re going to have trouble maximizing the 13 MP camera. Despite the terrible sensors, the camera takes good pictures in any lighting conditions. Another limitation of the camera would be the lack of stabilization.
If you’re not steady, pictures can come out a little blurry due to the lack of optical image stabilization. A fast auto focus and digital stabilization helps, but you still need to bring your A game when taking pictures.
Although the selfie camera has 13 MP and LED flash, pictures can have a tad bit of noise. The pictures look pretty good though. And you can shoot videos in Full HD.
Now that we got the review out of the way, let’s discuss your selling options.
