Samsung launched the Galaxy J7 (SM – J700F) smartphone in India back in July, exclusively on Flipkart for Rs. 14,999. We already brought you the unboxing of the smartphone, here we have the camera samples from the smartphone. The Galaxy J7 packs a 13-megapixel auto focus rear camera with f/1.9 aperture with single LED flash.
It has a 5-megapixel front-facing camera with 85-degree wide-angle lens, f/2.2 aperture and a flash light for capturing better selfies in low lighting conditions. The Galaxy J5 and the Galaxy J7 are the first Samsung smartphones to come with a selfie flash light.
The camera UI is similar to other Samsung smartphones running Android Lollipop. It has several modes (Auto, Pro (lets you adjust white balance, ISO and exposure manually), Panorama, Continuous shot, Beauty face, Sound & shot, Sports and HDR.), Effects ( Grey-scale, Sepia, Negative), and timer ( 2, 5 or 10 seconds). You can also press the home button twice to launch the camera, even when the screen is off and use the volume rockers as camera shutter.
Coming to the image quality, daylight shots are decent, but the exposure is not consistent, so most images end up dull or over exposed. Macro shots are good offering nice bokeh effect, thanks to f/1.9 aperture. Images are sharp and the color reproduction is good. HDR shots are better, again you face exposure issues in daylight. It is recommended to use the pro mode and adjust the exposure accordingly. Low-light shots have some noise as usual, but the images are not too bad. Images with flash are good since the flash offers an ample amount of light and is not over powering.
The 5MP front-facing camera has wide-selfie that captures 120-degree wide panorama for to accommodate more people. Images from the front camera have a lot noise even if the light is slightly less and lacks details. Flash light helps to capture a subject clearly in low lighting conditions, but it is not too bright. Overall the rear camera is decent and the front-facing camera is just average for the price.

It can record videos at 1080p full HD resolution at 30 fps. Video is good offering vibrant colors and are sharp, but the audio is not crisp since it doesn’t have a secondary microphone. Sadly it doesn’t have slow motion recording. Check out the video sample below.
