Once a leader of the budget smartphone market, the exiled King has returned with two bishops, Samsung On5 and On7. Let’s have a look at the Samsung Galaxy On7, a phone which will be available at an affordable price of INR 10,990/- and has the quality build of Samsung.
Samsung Galaxy On7 details
Design and Display:
With a 5.5 inch display, the Galaxy On7 comes in a sturdy body which claims to packs a lot of different features. The front area comprises of a speaker grill and front camera at the top. The traditional home button of Samsung is present at the bottom along with the same traditional capacitive keys which can help you in multitasking. The side bezels are easy to manage and help you keep the phone in place. The back side of the device comes with a faux leather finish or golden finish. The back side of the phone is removable so that you can access the micro SD card slot and dual sim slot. The back side also houses the main camera, an LED Flash and speakers on the both sides which are slightly odd. On the left-hand side, you have the ultra power saving mode button and on the right hand, the volume key and power key are present. The overall build of the phone is pretty good and we hardly have any complaints, except the speakers at the back side.
Now moving on, the display of On7 is 5.5 inches TFT, with a screen resolution of about (1280X720) HD. Very few smartphones at this price provide you with an HD display, and Samsung hasn’t really cashed on this little improvement. The colors on the device are vibrant enough and the screen adjusts well towards direct sunlight. The only thing lacked was waterproofing and a good glass protection. The screen can be smudged with dirt very easily if you don’t keep an eye on it.
Software and Performance:
On7 comes with a 1.2 GHz Quad Core processor packed with a chipset of Snapdragon 410. Both the processor and chipset are just decent combination that give you barely enough power for multitasking but do make sure that the phone doesn’t hang much. The Galaxy On7 has about 1.5 GB RAM which is ample space for multitasking. Inbuilt storage is about 8GB which is expandable up to 128GB through microSD card.
This time, the operating system has been upgraded to Android Lollipop 5.1 it does make the system a little bit stable overall but TouchWiz is still present but with a little less bloatware. You can make changes in the notification panel, and remove a few pre-loaded apps as well. The only main issue is that the Android version is a skimmed one. But then if you are comfortable with TouchWiz, you will feel right at home.
On7 comes with a 13MP rear camera and a 5 MP front camera. When it comes to performance, both the cameras perform well. Not that great, not that bad, just well. The rear camera may give some issues while focusing and you may even notice off balance colors in your pictures. Some of the initial users even reported that the pictures might turn milky white! But, where the main camera struggles, the front camera too isn’t that clear. The 5MP works well, even in low light it manages to capture good quality selfies and pictures but there was loss of clarity in many images. We understand that there is always a price to performance concept in smartphones, but if Coolpad can do it, why can’t you Samsung?

The battery of On7 is 3000mAh, which means that the device can last easily for about 10-20 hours at a stretch. In some moderate usage cases, it might even last for a full day. There is ultra power saving mode also available now, which when you use, turns off all background apps and goes into critical power saving mode.
