- Analysis by Christelle Nina
The newest iteration to Samsung's J7 series has suprisingly downgraded its display. From the 1080p screen found in the Samsung Galaxy J7 (2016), this offering from Verizon now has a resolution of only 1280 x 720 pixels for the same display size of 5.5 inches. This translates to a pixel density of 269DPI -- an unexciting figure, to say the least. With that said, if you're actively seeking the best screen quality in this model's market range, then the Samsung Galaxy J7 V is certainly a phone to skip.
Next in this pros and cons review is its performance specs. One of its biggest advantages lies on the Snapdragon 625 processor powering its core -- clocking in at an encouraging 2.2GHz . With 2GB to spare RAM-wise , it's not the best in this regard as many 3GB Androids are present in its price tier.

However, it backtracks once more once its cameras are inspected. It has an 8-megapixel camera at the back , while a 5-megapixel sensor handles selfies and video calls . It's easy to excuse these specs as acceptable given the J7 V's semi-budget phone standing. At this point, however, there already are a lot of similarly-priced devices that offer better imaging features.
Battery-wise, it houses a 3300mAh power tank . Considering the lack of a commanding display or a superior set of cameras, this easily becomes one of its biggest assets. The projected usage time makes it to the 40-hour mark . With the included Power Save feature , a full day of worry-free use should not be difficult to achieve (at least in theory).
Compared to many mid-range phones that attempt to offer a balanced set of specs, the Galaxy J7 V's pros and cons are more pronounced. With it, you get a promising clock speed and a well-endowed battery -- at the cost of competitive cameras and a nice display.
