Samsung Galaxy On7 is a bigger version on the Galaxy On5. This handset sports a 5.5 inch screen with 720p resolution and it houses the well known Snapdragon 410 quad core processor. The Galaxy On7 comes with a 13MP primary camera and is priced at ₹10,990.
Inside the box you will find the Galaxy On7, user guide, warranty card, data cable, travel charger 5V~1A, standard quality earphone and 3000 mAh removable battery. SAR Value : 0.407 W/Kg Head.
The handset design is exactly similar to as seen on the Galaxy On5, just that the handset size is slightly bigger. I got the black colour version for the review, in fact the gold looks much better and premium. It has got the same matte silver finish with shiny silver borders and the back panel come with nice textures.
Body is made of plastic and is comfortable to hold. Handset weight with battery is 171 grams and dimensions are 77.53 x 151.80 x 8.12mm. Power button is on the right, volume rocker on the left and at the bottom there is micro USB port and audio jack.
This is a dual SIM handset there are two micro SIM slots and an overlapping micro SD card slot. Both SIM support 4G.
There is no LED notification, native video calling is supported. And like the On5 this one also comes packed with 2 sensors – accelerometer and proximity. Light sensor is missing, you will need to manually adjust the brightness.
The On7 sports a 5.5 inch screen with 1280 x 720 pixels resolution. It’s a TFT screen. Colour reproduction, viewing angles and touch response are good.
Memory, Storage and OS
The On7 is also loaded with 1.5GB RAM and 8GB storage. There is micro SD card slot to add additional external storage. On the first boot you will get 4GB free storage space and around 645MB free RAM. OTG is supported and apps by default are getting installed on the internal storage, you can move some apps to external storage if applicable, there is a move to SD card option.
Galaxy On7 is running TouchWiz UI over Android Lollipop 5.1.1 (32 Bit).
This smartphone houses the Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 quad core processor clocked at 1.2GHz, it’s cortex A53 64 bit coupled with Adreno 306 GPU. Overall performance (when compared with On5) is very good, smooth and hardware is pretty good even for gaming.

I played the Asphalt 8, the game got installed on the internal storage. Game was playable and very smooth in high visual quality mode. The handset can play many high end games. Check video review for gaming action.
The On7 is loaded with 13MP AF camera with flash packed on the rear and a 5MP camera on the front. Camera quality is above average, however I found the On5 camera slightly better when compared. Rear camera can shoot full HD videos.
Do check the sample images and videos at the end of this review.
No other issues found, loudspeaker and in-call speaker is loud and clear. No issues with 4G (2300 band), 3G, WiFi, GPS and Bluetooth.
This handset also comes with ultra power saving mode and ultra data saving mode that will help you save more bandwidth.
There is 3000 mAh removable battery that again does a pretty good job. You can expect about 5 to 7 hours of continuous moderate to heavy usage on a single charge.

The Samsung Galaxy On7 is using the known Snapdragon 410 64 bit hardware running 32 Bit OS (Android Lollipop). No issues with performance and handset does not heat up. 2 point multi touch is disappointing but should not be a major issue for most users.
There are better options available in the market for this price tag, however if you are looking for a known brand with good after sales then Galaxy On7 is a good option for ₹10,990 (considering the brand).
