Samsung Mobiles Nepal has launched a new phone, the Galaxy J Max, in the Nepali Market. It is Samsung’s biggest phone measuring a 7-inch display and comes with a Bluetooth Headset for calling and receiving calls.

Priced at Rs. 21, 900, the Galaxy J Max has a 70% screen to body ratio despite featuring a huge 7-inch TFT capacitive display with a resolution of 800 x 1280 pixels. It is powered by a 1.5Ghz quad-core processor (Spreadtrum SC8830) which is an outdated 32-bit SoC compared to the 64-bit processor that you will easily get at this price point. In terms of memory, the J Max has 1.5GB of RAM and 8GB of onboard storage with microSD expansion slot expandable upto 200GB.

Camera wise, the phone sports an 8MP rear camera with LED flash and a 2MP front-facing camera. It is currently running on Android 5.1 Lollipop with TouchWiz UI which is again a let down since it was announced last month and should have at least featured Marshmallow 6.0.1 out-of-the-box. Powering the device is a 4000mAh non-removable battery rated to provide 21 hours of talk time. Connectivity wise, the phone has Dual SIM (4G +3G), Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 4. 0, and GPS. Like other midrange phones from Samsung, it lacks Fingerprint scanner, Dual band Wi-Fi ac, and also misses out on some basic sensors like Auto brightness and Gyro Sensor.

Coming back to the design, the Galaxy J Max is a weird device and is not ideal for all. Having said that, it could be a decent phone for multimedia consumers. Like the recently launched Galaxy J2 2016, the J Max features a Turbo Speed Technology (TST) which the company claims will result in superior device performance. It also comes with Smart Glow — a colour LED notification system, Ultra data saving (UDS) mode powered by Opera Max and S bike mode.
