Is the Samsung On7 a feather in the company’s cap? Does it stay true to the quality of the Galaxy series? Let’s see what reviewers think.
Launched in November 2015, the Samsung Galaxy On7 has taken the Indian smartphone market by storm. Priced at an affordable ₹10,990, it generated a lot of hype in the mid-segment market with features like its 13 MP rear snapper, TouchWhiz user interface and battery life. The smartphone is now available on Flipkart during January 7 and January 8, 2016 on a special offer price—at a flat discount of ₹1,000 and a discount of upto ₹5,000 on an exchange.
Coupled with Samsung’s great after-sales service, the Galaxy On7 seems to be one of the best available smartphones in the price segment it occupies. But is the phone really all that it’s made out to be? Let’s see what reviewers and users of the device are saying.

All in all, the Samsung On7 wins with its phablet screen, dual SIM (both 4G LTE), expandable storage capacity of 128 GB, high performing camera, OS and UI. The phone is also equipped with MixRadio (which offers access to over 30 million songs), and the Ultra Data Saving Mode (UDS), which saves up to 50% of your 4G data while you stream, browse or download videos and content—making it a popular choice for the mid-segment consumer.
