“When it comes to the cameras, the J7 Max offers flagship specs at a mid-range price”

Samsung recently took the covers off its latest mid-range devices in the form of the Galaxy J7 Pro and J7 Max. Both devices boot Android Nougat out of the box and bring forth quite a few nifty features. But perhaps the most interesting one is their camera capabilities, especially in low light. That’s why today, we’d be focusing on why the Samsung Galaxy J7 Max is ideal for photography lovers.

Flagship camera specs

Right off the bat, you’d notice something different with the rear camera. That’s because it’s surrounded by the Smart Glow ring, which lets users assign different colours to notifications from different apps or contacts. In terms of the camera specifications, the rear shooter boasts a resolution of 13-megapixel and comes with an aperture of f/1.7. In fact, this is the widest aperture available on smartphones yet, and it’s mostly available in premium offerings only. But the J7 Max is offering it in the mid-range, and this large aperture is the main reason why it offers improved camera performance in poorly-lit conditions. What it does is allow more light into the camera, and that directly translates to better and brighter photos with less noise and more clarity. And of course, if you’d like to brighten up the subject even more, then you can turn on the LED flash. 

Instant sharing capabilities

On the other hand, daylight photos are even crisper, and worth flaunting on your social media accounts. And with the Samsung Galaxy J7 Max, you don’t have to take multiple steps to just share them on Facebook or WhatsApp. With the Social Camera feature, you can share them instantly. All you need to do is to choose the Social option after clicking a picture, and then the interface lets you select social networks like Facebook, WhatsApp and Messenger. Once done, it immediately takes you to the respective app. In the case of Facebook, for example, the photo is already selected and you just need to add a caption to share it in with everyone. 

Stickers let you add more to the images

You can also add spice to the photos with the cute stickers. You can resize these stickers and also add more than one. The camera on the J7 Max goes a step further as it also lets you add location-based stickers, if you pin your location. Isn’t that a cool way to let your friends know where you are enjoying the moment?

An integrated editor to tweak your shots

Talking about sprucing up the images, the Galaxy J7 Max also offers an in-built editor that lets you adjust colour tones, brightness, saturation, and white balance, among other things. Neat, we must say. The camera app is also loaded with various modes, including a Pro mode letting you tweak the ISO levels, shutter speed and more as per your need.

Caters to selfie enthusiasts too

While the Samsung J7 Max offers impressive results with its rear camera, it even lifts your selfie game as well, irrespective of the lighting conditions. Wondering how? That’s because not only does the secondary snapper come with the same 13MP resolution, but also with its very own front facing flash. And once again, Samsung has opted for a large f/1.9 aperture for the front camera, which is much better compared to most of the smartphones available in the market.

The Samsung Galaxy J7 Max isn’t all about its cameras though, as it’s no slouch when we talk about power. It comes equipped with a 14.48cm (5.7-inch) full HD display, an octa-core processor, 4GB of RAM, 32GB of onboard storage and a large 3,300mAh battery. Then there are features like facial recognition and Samsung Pay mini that instantly sets it apart from the competition. All said and done, the Galaxy J7 Max is one the most promising mid-range devices from the Korean giant till date. It has been priced at Rs 17,900 and is available via both online and major brick and mortar stores across the country.
