Sprint has just expanded its lineup by another affordable phone. Although the Galaxy J7 Perx is not a major Samsung release, it is surely a device worth your attention, especially if you’re looking for a decent phone for less. Being a refreshment of the last year’s Galaxy J7, the Perx is a 5.5-inch phablet offering a bit more than just basic communication features.
Sprint has just added the Galaxy J7 Perx to its portfolio that offers a large screen and the latest Android experience for less.
The Samsung Galaxy J7 Perx isn’t an entirely new kid on the block. Originally launched in April 2016, the Galaxy J7 Perx is rather a clever revamp of the original Galaxy J7 than a brand new handset. More over the phone has been already offered at Boost Mobile, Virgin Mobile and Verizon Wireless. Today the device was ported to Sprint allowing carrier’s customers to enjoy the combination of full smartphone functionality and comparatively low pricing.
The Galaxy J7 Perx is within can be bought for $264 outright, or for $11 per month with zero money down if you prefer to go the 24-month installment plan route. For that money, Sprint’s subscribers will get a really decent smartphone that isn’t just a communication tool, but also a center of mobile entertainment.
The 5.5-inch screen panel should deliver a comfortable viewing experience regardless the 720p of resolution. The J7 Perx comes driven by the Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 625 octa-core processor clocked at 2.2GHz and paired with 2GB RAM. Such computing parameters are sufficient to provide users with smooth Android 7.1 Nougat performance.
Powered by a pretty large 3,300 mAh removable battery the phone shall deliver up to 40 hours of talk-time and up to 12 days on a stand-by mode, at least this is what manufacturer manual promises. Represented by 8MP rear and 5MP front camera sensors aren’t the strongest points of the handset but should do the job. As for the connectivity options, the phone offers Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, Hotspot, Wi-Fi Calling, VoLTE, LTE and NFC support.
The Samsung Galaxy J7 Perx is available at Sprint’s online store in two color options. You can choose between traditional black and white. Unfortunately, there’s no bigger storage option than 16GB one. However, the good news is that you can add some more space for your apps and files using microSD cards.
