With Galaxy J7 2017 just released, it is no sooner than expected that there will be another variant showing its head around.

Before we begin, let’s take a closer look at Galaxy J7 2017 as per below:

  • 5.5-inch Full HD Super AMOLED capacitive touchscreen with 1080 x 1920 pixels or ~401 ppi pixel density)
  • Fingerprint sensor
  • Exynos 7870 Octa chipset, Octa-core 1.6 GHz Cortex-A53 processor, Mali-T830MP2 graphics and 3GB RAM
  • 16GB/32GB internal storage with microSD expansion slot up to 256GB maximum
  • 13MP primary camera with f/1.7 aperture, autofocus and LED flash
  • 13MP secondary camera with f/1.9 aperture and LED flash
  • Non-removable Li-Ion 3600 mAh battery
  • Android Nougat 7.0
  • Dual-sim and 4G LTE
  • July 2017 release date
  • $239 USD price tag

You can say that the South Korean manufacturer seems to be hitting the right spot for its mid-range Galaxy J7 2017. Everything about it is good enough and the price is just about right. Kudos to Samsung for that.

That leaves us with Galaxy J7 Nxt with high expectations to follow in its footsteps. Priced slightly lower, here you go then with its specs:

  • 5.5-inch HD Super AMOLED capacitive touchscreen with 720 x 1280 pixels or ~267 ppi pixel density
  • Exynos 7870 Octa chipset, Octa-core 1.6 GHz Cortex-A53 processor, Mali-T830MP2 graphics and 2GB RAM
  • 16GB internal storage with microSD expansion slot up to 256GB maximum
  • 13MP primary camera with f/1.9 aperture, 28mm, autofocus and LED flash
  • 5MP secondary camera with f/2.2 aperture, 23mm and LED flash
  • Removable Li-Ion 3000 mAh battery
  • Android Nougat 7.0
  • Dual-sim and 4G LTE
  • July 2017 release date
  • $11,490 Indian Rupee or ~$179 USD price tag

At a glance, the price difference does bring with it a lot of minus points. For starters, it might still be sporting the same 5.5-inch Super AMOLED screen; but with a lower High Definition resolution. This means that you won’t get to enjoy too much of screen time on it.

Whereas for what’s under the hood of Galaxy J7 Nxt, it is sporting the same chipset, same processor, same graphics but with only 2GB RAM. With this combination, you are getting almost similar performance which is good enough for your daily use.

In terms of storage, the Galaxy J7 Nxt only have 16GB of internal storage. Thankfully, it is very easy to add up to 256GB of internal storage via the available microSD expansion slot.

Camera-wise, there’s the 13MP-5MP camera combination which is still capable of delivering good-looking photos that will be able to satisfy most users.

As far as the battery goes, Galaxy J7 Nxt comes with a 3000 mAh battery which is more than enough to power up the smartphone for at least a full day in between charging.

The latest Android Nougat 7.0 is available, so you know that you are getting the latest enhancements, features, and functions that come along with it.

Conclusion:

Samsung Galaxy J7 Nxt might be an entry-level option, but there are far better options for you at this price point. It doesn’t do justice as per the Galaxy J7 2017, switch your targets elsewhere for now.

The Samsung Galaxy J7 Nxt had just been released in India for $11,490 Indian Rupee or ~$179 USD. You get to choose either Black or Gold color.
