The modest mid-range Samsung Galaxy E7 smartphone has just the right amount of smartphone features without going overboard with bloatware. It does so without costing an arm and a leg too, at least by Samsung's standards.
- Attractive design poses for a more premium offering, while keeping the Samsung aesthetic
- Super AMOLED screen doesn't disappoint and produces punchy colors, with great viewing angles and sufficient brightness
- Battery life is very good, although web browsing takes a more serious toll on endurance than we would have liked
- Dual-SIM capability is a welcome feature, but you have to choose between a second SIM card or microSD storage expansion
- A simpler version of TouchWiz on top of KitKat works fluidly, Lollipop is said to be on the way; Multi-window and pop-up windows add extra productivity on the large screen
- Performance is modest at best, demanding games are out of the question
- Loudspeaker volume came out Average
- Video player has wide video codec support, but no support for multi-channel audio
- Impressive audio output with external amp, good with headphones
- 13MP camera produces detailed images, with accurate colors and exposure but also limited dynamic range
- 5MP front snapper is fine for selfies
- The 1080p@30fps videos look good, higher frame-rate modes would have been welcome
