Samsung's popular budget smartphone makes another comeback

Samsung has finally managed to branch out its Galaxy series of handsets and come up with various budget and mid-range lineups. From Galaxy A to Galaxy J series, Samsung now has a device for people from all walks of life. Buoyed by the success of its handsets, the brand is now gearing up to launch the all new 2017 upgrade of these handsets. The Samsung Galaxy J7 originally was a very popular handset, which will now go into its third generation. Here is a brief overview of the device if you are looking for a new budget segment handset and can wait.

Why Should You buy?

Super AMOLED display: One of the highlights of most Samsung smartphones happen to be their brilliant display. Samsung Galaxy J7 2017 edition is expected to come with a full HD 5.5 inch display. However, what makes it stand out is the Super AMOLED panel, which not only reproduces color brilliantly but is also battery efficient.

Good specifications: Just like its predecessor, this handset too is expected to come with a decent spec sheet to boot. Samsung is expected to launch the handset with a powerful Octa-core processor accompanied with 3 GB of RAM. Which is a good spec for smooth performance.

Why Should You Not buy?

No fingerprint scanner: One of the drawbacks in this handset is that the device is missing a fingerprint scanner. At a price point where ever handset comes with a fingerprint scanner, it seems to be missing out on a crucial feature.

Any Alternative?

Moto G4 Plus: Moto G4 Plus has everything that Galaxy J7 has and more, which makes it the best alternative to the handset by default. This handset has better processor, better camera and a fingerprint scanner on the front panel. If a fingerprint scanner is important for you as well as camera quality, go for this handset instead of Galaxy J7 (2017)
