Even though the two cameras are both the same megapixel, they are different.  The selfie camera has an aperture of f/1.9 and the back camera has f/1.7.

This means the back camera lens allows more lighting and therefore will expectedly shoot better images.

Under the phone, there's a USB port and microphone for calls

First Impressions

The Samsung Galaxy J7 Pro is an eye candy that is lightweight and sleek.

Even though bezels take up a lot of its 5.5-inch screen, there's still sufficient  screen space to use.

Because of size, the home button in front that also doubles as a fingerprint scanner is easily accessible.

Though the price point may be an issue, but looking at the specs, this is no budget phone.

At first encounter, the J7 Pro looks like the compact smartphone to have.


From offline stores to e-commerce platforms there's a whole range of prices for the Samsung Galaxy J7 Pro.

But it is currently available on Jumia from ₦93,000 to ₦110,000.
