Not so impressive, but still better offer than Sony fragile midrange

Certainly better than an iphone ripoff Xaomi. Sony is better and its midrangers are great too.

This article doesn't provide correct information. Unlike Chinese version, in India Galaxy J7 does not come with Snapdragon 615 but rather comes with Exynos 7580 octa-core processor and Mali-T720 MP2 GPU. Also Indian version comes with super AMOLED display. Please correct it.
