The Samsung Galaxy J7 Pro comes with a front LED flash. There are many manufacturers that opt to just not include one, but I there is a high demand for it. The thing is that you do have the option to light up your selfies using the front screen and some people use this option. Still, a LED flash...

I think one of the main highlights if the Galaxy J7 Pro is its 13MP F1.7 aperture rear camera. If we look at the other J7 models, we can see that the J7 Prime that was launched on October 2016, comes with a 13MP F1.9 aperture lens and the J7 that was launched on May 2016, comes with a 13MP F1.9 lens...

Slow AF performance (no phase detection)

The Galaxy J7 Pro AF performance is pretty poor. It uses contrast-detect AF, which causes the AF to "hunt" for a good focus. I think the main reason for that is lack of phase-detection AF in the sensor.

Doesn't record 4K videos

The Galaxy J7 Pro rear camera is limited to FHD 1080p30 video recording resolution 4K is definitely the hottest trend as more people jump into the 4K viewing experience and wan to be able to record and see their recorded memories in the highest quality available.

Always-on Display, easy to read notifications on standby

One of the great advantages of the J7 Pro screen and due to its sAMOLED technology, is it's ability to show alerts and notifications on a portion of the screen without users needing to bring the phone out from standby mode. It's also very energy efficient.

Super AMOLED display for the best viewing experience

Splash proof (IP54)

The Galaxy J7 Prime is IP54 certified, which also means that it's slash proof. So you have less worried if accidentally your phone gets wet, it doesn't mean that it is doomed. Just wipe the wet off and continue what you were doing.

Durable full metal body design

The Galaxy J7 Pro body is made of metal, providing sleek look and durable exterior to protect your phone fro accidental falls, bump and overall it feels great to hold it in the hands (compared to polycarboate).

Only available in two colors

As of the time of writing, the J7 pro is only available in black and gold colors. It would be nice if Samsung added new color options for people to choose from.

Not waterproof

The Galaxy J7 Pro isn't waterproof, which is a disadvantage in my opinion. If you are a waterproof phone, you probably want to go with the Galaxy A5, but it will cost you around $80 more.

Ugly antenna lines at the back

I don't know what Samsung was thinking when it designed the back of the phone. Those antenna lines are among the worst that I've seen in a phone and makes the back looks really bad.

Side speaker, great for playing games horizontally

The speaker is positioned on the side of the Galaxy J7 Pro, which is great, because when you play games in horizontal orientation, you won't block the speaker grill with your hand, what can happen if it was positioned at the top or bottom.

The Samsung Galaxy J7 Pro comes with Android Nougat 7.0 OS, which is the latest version of Android as of its release date. I do hope that it will get an update to Android O once it launches in its commercial release.

The Samsung Galaxy J7 Pro comes with a Dual SM and Dual socket, but the best thing is that it also comes with a dedicated microSD card slot. This means that users won't have to choose between a micro SD card or a secondary SIM card. you can use all three at the same time. The dedicated mSD card slot...

Excellent battery capacity (3600mAh)

The Galaxy J7 Pro comes with a 3,600mAh battery capacity, which is 300mAh higher than the J7 Prime and the J7 from last's year (2016). This means longer usage time and you probably won't need to charge up your phone during the day (for an average use).

Affordable price, good value

For Rs. 20,990 (as of August 1st, 2017), the Galaxy J7 Pro sales for a very good price and also brings very good value overall. This s why the J7 series is so popular and many people are satisfied with the build quality, design and processor and camera performance.
