The Samsung Galaxy J7 has been noted by many people who love it as one of the best phones at its price range. This is a quick look at its specifications.

The Samsung Galaxy J7 was released in June 2015. It is a sleek, big, and well designed phone. It is the biggest, at 5.5 inches, in the Samsung J series which consist of the J1, J5 and the J7.

This is the phone that most bloggers won at the #BAKEAwards 2016 accordint to the various categories they were nominated.

Here are its specifications:

The version that supports 4G/LTE networks costs between Ksh. 27,000 and Ksh. 30,000. The normal 3G model costs between Ksh. 22,000 to Ksh. 23,000.

Do you believe the said specs should cost you that much money?

Which Samsung phone, according to you, has the best pricing for what it offers compared to other smartphone brands?

The Super AMOLED Display, the cameras and LTE support would make me want to get this phone. But I still the prices should have gone down by now considering it is a 2015 phone.

How do you think it compares to the Boom J8?
