The Samsung Galaxy ON7 is a mid-range phablet aimed at users who want a mid-range device but with an attractive design that attracts attention from the start. The Galaxy ON7 will be available in gold and white, with features that include a 5.5-inch HD panel, quad-core processor with 1.5 GB of RAM and above all a good rear camera with a resolution of 13 megapixels with an aperture of f /2.1. This article takes you through the features/characteristics and specifications of the Galaxy On7 as well as provides a Samsung Galaxy On7 review. You should also note that this is the counterpart to the Samsung Galaxy On5.
The design is one of the strengths of this phone. Although this is a smartphone that is between the l0w-range and mid-range, Samsung has put great care in building this model. Starting with the front of the two models, which can be golden or black with a metallic appearance. We also have sides with a metallic appearance (what is not clear is whether they are metal or plastic). But above all, we liked its casing which mimics the skin and is available in the same main colors (gold or black). It has a differential touch similar to that found in releases like the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 and other smartphones.
As for the Samsung Galaxy ON7 measurements, we should mention that it is 8.2 mm thin. Its weight of 172 grams puts it slightly above the great releases, but these are still very competitive measurements.
In the section of the screen we have a TFT type panel of 5.5 inches with HD resolution of 1,280 x 720 pixels. This resolution sets the density at 267 dots per inch and offers a medium level of detail, it should be enough for typical use of the phone or navigation of apps, but it may fall short when it comes to watching YouTube videos, movies or games with powerful graphics like the new Star Wars: Uprising game for Android.

Inside the photographic section, the device has a rear camera with a good resolution of 13 megapixels and an angle of aperture of f /2.1. This allows the sensor to capture a larger amount of light and take sharper pictures in low light conditions. Although Samsung has not specified at this point, it is expected that this smartphone is also capable of recording video in 1080p high resolution. On the front, the camera comes with 5 megapixels resolution with an aperture of f/2.2 for taking selfies.
On the inside of the Samsung Galaxy ON7 is an Exynos processor with four cores and a power of 1.2 GHz. This chip is combined with 1.5 GB RAM. As we see, it is good enough to run most Android apps. Yes, you can notice a lack of performance in more powerful applications and games. And, added to that, the RAM does not allow for much of anything. If you are accustomed to opening many processes simultaneously, thing again.
The internal memory of Samsung Galaxy ON7 is 8 GB. If we set aside the space used for the operating system or applications, this smartphone leaves us with 4.9 GB of storage space for our personal files. If you need more space you can rely on a MicroSD memory card or online storage system.
The operating system chosen for this device is Android 5.1.1 Lollipop.This is the standard now across many Samsung smartphones. Keep in mind that the Android version 6 Marshmallow is only just taking off in the market, so it is likely that we still have to wait a few months for this version to reach mid range devices like this one. Android 5.1.1 Lollipop highlighted by the change in the appearance of the interface, with more rounded icons and use of a lot of color in the menus.
As with most smartphones it has access to a large ecosystem of Android apps with a large number of quality titles such as Facebook, WhatsApp, Clash of Clans, YouTube and you can even use two Instagram accounts on a single device with Instwogram. Samsung also wanted to do their part in adding to the number of applications. Among them we emphasize on the Samsung Smart Manager to free up space or RAM in the phablet or Samsung Milk Music, a music platform brand that promises to be delightful.
