Design that Attract
As competition gear up the overall looks of the phone is also considered by the customers very seriously, There is no room for the ugly looking smartphone. So here J7 Max comes up with Glamorous metallic unibody design gently curved in corners providing ease while holding in hands. The phone looks quite premium and it is good to see a very narrow side bezels with 72.5% screen-to-body ratio. the rear side has LED based Smart Glow, rotating around the primary camera module. The power key is placed at the right edge while volume rockers are on the left. The Bottom of smartphone housing a microUSB Slot where we are really missing USB Type-C slot. 3.5mm audio jack is also found next to USB slot.

5.7 inches Full HD Display
Samsung started offering sAMOLED Display in many Smartphone under Rs 20K but unfortunately, in this phone they are offering 5.7 inches PLS TFT LCD. Although this TFT display has a quite good configuration with 1080 x 1920 pixels (Full HD) resolutions and 386 ppi pixel density that delivers neat & clean visual content. It is not bright as AMOLED but in full brightness, it is usable under sunlight conditions. This may be little odd that is not comes up with any kind of special screen protection glass. 

Smooth Processing with Octa-core CPU
Samsung decided to go with MediaTek instead of Snapdragon or even their own Exynos CPU so This handset is configured with the Mediatek MT6757 Helio P20 chipset having 8 cores where 4 cores are clocked at 2.4 GHz while another 4 cores are clocked at 1.6 GHz which is coupled with 4GB RAM. This configuration is pretty good for multitasking and even high-end games are also running efficiently although this chipset is not strong as high-end CPU so sometimes frame drop or lagging is observed in playing graphic intensive games like Asphalt 8 in the highest graphic setting. For typical daily use, it is running very smoothly without any trouble regarding performance. 

Better Picture Quality with 13 MP Camera
The primary camera of J7 Max has 13 MP sensor with f/1.7 aperture that allows more light to enter in camera and takes the better picture in low light environment. Although the photos taken from its 13MP camera module is not equivalent to flagship phones like S7 or S8 but definitely offering a decent quality as according to budget. The front also has 13 MP camera but f/1.9 aperture, now there is also a LED flash for the front camera so you can take selfies even in poor light conditions. Overall both the camera in this handset are pretty decent. 

Battery with 20 Hours Talktime
It has non-removable 3300 mAh battery which is not enabled with the Quick charge so this may take 2:5-3:0 hours to fully charge the battery. However as according to claim of company Galaxy J7 Max offers 20 hours Talktime over 3G Network, which is pretty impressive for a 5.7 inches smartphone.

    Major issue is, when you are using earphone for listing music or else, if on that time you received any call through earphone your voice, caller voice and Music voice listing in at a time.

    and if you are receive any calls, you loud speaker automatically on's, then after you manually stop that option and specks others (in All ways of attending a call)

    if received call you puts a ear, that screen is not offed automatically and if any information needs like contacts and others if you used through attending a call time, screen not showing light screen , its appears black screen showing.

    No silent method in unwanted calls / other calls mentioned in silence mode directly
