Samsung Launches Galaxy J7 2016 in Pakistan

Samsung has recently launched the Galaxy J7 (2016 edition) in Pakistan.

The phones comes with a large 5.5 inch display with a 720p resolution. Under the hood, you get an Octa-core 1.6 GHZ processor, 2GB of RAM and 16GB of storage that can be bumped up through an external microSD card slot.

On the camera front, you get a 13MP shooter at the back and a 5MP camera at the front, which comes with its own dedicated flash for selfies. There are plenty of features that should make snapping a great photo easy.

It’s all powered by a 3300 mAh battery, which is user replaceable. Other notable features include a metal frame construction and Dual SIM capabilities. The Galaxy J7 is now available in the market for Rs. 33,000. You get a free 16GB microSD card with the purchase.

While it offers great battery timings according to initial tests, everything else is decidedly average. That makes us wonder why Samsung priced the phone so high. Metal construction no longer justifies a significant premium as evidenced by the likes of Xiaomi and Asus.

It seems like the company needs to step up its game if it wants us to part with our money.

    That’s ridiculous. Even Infinix Zero 3 is available for 21K and has much better specs than this!

    • bhai mind na karna, per infinix ka abhi tak OS he stable nahe ho raha, aur according to infinix users, zero 3 sab se bekar set hai, aur MTK octa processor ka aap samsung Exynos octa se comparison kar rahey ho, rahi baat ram ki to ye 2 gb ram ki management bohat zeyada optimized hai, mein j7 2015 edition use kar raha hon, is ki 1.5 gb ram zero3 ki 3gb ram se achi hai.

            • aamir7

              Paypal isn’t allowed in Pakistan.

              • Sys

                Then how do people buy SSL certificates from godaddy and domains, web hosting, legit apps? How do they pay for it. Almost everyone accept PayPal.

                • Uzair Asim

                  There are ways to get a Paypal account verified in our country even if it’s not officially allowed.

                • Abid Ali

                  Debit/Credit cards.
