We all know Samsung launches well over a dozen phones every year. They just have a huge portfolio of Smartphones which isn’t a bad thing, as they just want to release a phone for everyone. Adding to that pile of smartphones is the new Galaxy On7 pro.
The Samsung On7 pro was launched in India in July and was available exclusively online at Amazon. Today, Samsung Mobiles Nepal has officially launched the On7 Pro in Nepal and the company has priced the device at Rs. 17,490.
[Update: It’s now available for just Rs. 15,490]
Galaxy On7 Pro at a glance:
- 5.5-inch 720p TFT LCD Display
- Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 (4x Cortex-A53 with Adreno 306)
- 2GB RAM, 16GB storage with microSD (Up to 128GB)
- 13 megapixel rear, 5-megapixel front camera
- Dual SIM, 4G LTE support
- Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow
- 3000mAh removable battery
- Ultra Data Saving, Sbike Mode
As far as build quality is concerned, it has a plastic body and reminded me of the Samsung Galaxy grand that was launched back in 2013. It feels cheap compared to what the competitors are offering at budget segment these days. The sides also house a plastic frame which makes it less durable.
Moving to the display, it’s a TFT 720p screen which is the area where Samsung has compromised. The TFT panel is way inferior to the AMOLED display that we liked about Samsung midrange phones. The panel has awful color reproduction and viewing angles.
Connectivity options include WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS, and dual SIM with 4G LTE Cat 4. Powering the On 7 Pro is a dated Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 SoC (1.2Ghz Quadcore Cortex A53) coupled with 2GB of RAM. If you are someone who judges a phone with benchmarks, it scores about 28000 in AnTuTu 6 which is commendable for a phone of this price range.
The 13MP primary camera has an F2.1 aperture lens and LED flash, while the 5MP front camera boasts F2.2 aperture lens, 103-degree wide angle lens, palm selfie and beauty shot. The 3000mAh user replaceable battery is rated to provide 2 days of battery life. However, like with the other midrange phones from Samsung, the On 7 pro lacks important sensors such as auto brightness and gyro. As expected, the fingerprint scanner is also missing.
