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.

Unboxing
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.

Design
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.

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.

Camera
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.

Others
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.

Battery
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.

Gaming (Asphalt 8) 20 Minutes 6% 35 degree
FHD movie play with full brightness + Wi-Fi on 52 minutes 12% 34 degree
Wall Charge (on standby) 2 hour 13 Minutes 33% to 100% (wall charge) – from 0 to 100% estimated less than 3 hours. 34 degree

Verdict
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).

Samsung Galaxy On7 is available on Flipkart for ₹10,990.

  10. I like the phone a lot but it is written INDIA SIM ONLY I am not Indian, I am in India for studies only so I will have to leave after 1 year what should I do? please I need clarification.

  11. gogi sir ;Is samsung galaxy j7 better than galaxy on 7 . Money is no problem. I want to buy a phone from these. I am waiting for your reply.

  12. Will moto g2 be better than this as it available at Rs. 9000 or should I go for moto g3 (which cost rs 13000)?

  13. Hi gogi, is their any difference in battery backup because of tft display if compares to j7? Both have 3000 mah.

  14. I personally used j2 since 8days. I sold my 90days(brought in 3rd flash sale) old k3 in just 7500, reason are bad battery backup,sar value,low quality touch,hanging issue even no app running or only whatsapp fb and uc installed,loW quality accessories. (When I called flipkart and questioning about k3 sar value…they answers me it is harmful high sar value),j2 must buy phone uske ke liye he jo bina bug ka mobile lena chahate he…no touch problem,no hanging,awesome build quality and accessories mashahallah.

  15. Gogi dear which one i should go for grand max or on7 COZ m confuse about display quality between these two . plss rply

  16. If there were the usual sensors, it could have been a hit. Why cost cut in sensors? Earlier they used to cut cost on screen, now on sensors. It will still sell at offline stores and ladies would love to have this….. But this could have killed still phones if there were usual sensors and IPS screen.

  17. hii Gogi … u are the first reviewer of these two phones ….
    thanks for your great reviews.
    now, I am confused between galaxy j7, j5, on7 and on5 … whose image quality and video quality is best among these?
    suggest me
    I have to buy before Diwali.

    1. Hi if you can afford go with the Galaxy J series, specially the J7, if price is an issue the On5. As for image quality all of the Samsung Smartphones have good camera.

  18. Hi gogi u say in video review that camera exposure not available, u can change it in setting. Update plz

  19. However the trend is phone looks awesome on looks like very premium phone but hardware side is weak so foolish people are going WT this hansets but intelligent people shows hardware and software not looks. Are you agree with me CHEHRE PE MAT JAO APNI AKKAL LAGAO

  20. gogi,is there really no way of using this phone outside India as it says on the box pack(Indian sim only).?

    1. Yes for Indian SIM only, you will need to use Indian SIM to activate and you need to make over 5 minutes of cumulative calls using Indian SIM before you can use SIM from other regions.

      1. gogi. u mean i need an Indian sim for the 1st time just to activate it, thats it …???then i can use it anywhere i want, ri8???earlier,i thought that this phone can only be used in india.

        1. The text written on box (Indian SIM card only peal that) is – product should be activated with a SIM card from mobile operator in India.To use SIM from other regions cumulative calls over 5 minutes must first be made with the SIM card from Indian operators.

  21. If it has 16gb ROM and sAmoled screen then considering the brand value, it could be good option and VFM at 10k. What u say Gogi ji?

  22. Most of the people comparing Samsung with lenovo k3 note but I think they never experienced lenovo after sale service it’s so bad you can’t imagine my lenovo a7000 still in the service center after 2 months and know one knows where it’s is.. . But on the other hand Samsung is the good.

  23. Only 2 point multi touch
    No light, gyro & magnetic sensors
    Only 4gb user available which is not sufficient for games
    Only 600mb ram available which is not good for multi tasking
    Only TFT screen where as u can get ips or amoled at this range
    Camera of 13mp is not as good as 8mp camera on on5
    Bullsh*t who will buy these phones other than brand cautious persons who doesn’t know about current market specs at this time.

  24. hello sir, can you please inform me whether it can play 4K videos or not ? Please do reply me, I will be waiting for your reply sir.

  25. Gogi Sir, in the review of Samsung on7 mobile, nothing is mentioned about low PPI issue.. please guide us about the pixel point of view

  26. This can sell more in brick and mortar shops, where people who are less tech-savvy and more brand conscious will go. If they make it Flipkart exclusive, it will be a flop, where lot of better options are available.

  27. Gogi bro I fail to understand why you miss numerical rating in text on many reviews. I can suppose you have given exact 4 to On7 and so the textual rating like in On5 is missing. If so is the case then coolpad note 3 has also only 4 out of 5 correct?

    1. Text rating is given when rating is in decimal,the rating box that I am using does not allow decimals, hence if I want to give 3.5 or 4.5 I will assign 3 or 4 in the rating box and add text rating 3.5 or 4.5 (also mentioning the reason).

  28. Too much pricey Lenovo K3 note Octacore processor 2 gb ram 4 g lte FULL HD WT THE PRICE TAG OF 9999 AT FLIPKART I ALSO PURCHASED AND DO 332 MB UPDATE ON LENOVO SERVICE station then no heating issue better than this crap.

    1. Far better.i personally used j2 since 8days.i sold my 90days old k3 resion are bd bettery backup,sar value,low quality touch,hanging issue,loW quality acssesories

  29. Lot of competition out in the market, if you still consider brand value & 4g moto 2 nd gen 4g variant is far better than this one…

  30. I think we should wait for few more months. Samsung will come with another good phones in this budget.
