Samsung Galaxy J7 Duo is the cheapest Samsung phones that features a dual rear camera. The dual camera setup has 13 MP  primary camera and a 5 MP depth-sensing camera. The front side has an 8 MP camera. The camera performance is good, no complaints whatsoever. Though the display is not best in class still provides good visibility indoors and outdoors. The 5.5 inches Super AMOLED display has a resolution of 720 x  1280 pixels at 267 PPI density. It is powered by Exynos 7885 octa-core 2.2 GHz processor coupled with Mali-G71 GPU.

J7 Duo has 4 GB of RAM and 32 GB inbuilt memory which is expandable up to 256 GB via a dedicated card slot. You will get a fingerprint scanner on the front side. Under the hood, there is a 3000 mAh battery that gives average backup. The phone has the durable build quality that can bear the hand drops up to some extent. But I won’t recommend you to do the same unless you are very curious to test the strength of the phone. Overall, Galaxy J7 Duo is decent but not impressive. But for someone who only wants Samsung with dual camera in the investing much, J7 Duo is the one.

It gets 64 GB of inbuilt storage along with a dedicated micro SD card slot that supports up to 256 GB.

But above all, the one thing that I am most curious about is the camera.

Samsung Galaxy A6+ is one more below midrange smartphones launched by Samsung this year. It has a 6 inches Super AMOLED full HD display with 411 PPI density. Samsung has tried to keep the bezels thin but little more would have been better to reduce the dimension of the phone. It will run on Android 8.0 (Oreo) out of the box and powered by Snapdragon 450 processor. The SD 450 does not justify the price and features of this phone at all. Samsung should have used the Snapdragon 625 or above.

It is available in two variants, 3 GB with 32 GB and 4 GB RAM with 64 GB internal storage. Both the models will have a dedicated card slot so storage won’t be a problem. In 2018, users can compromise with the processor but not with the camera. The camera has become the first priority in the smartphones and Samsung knows that. Samsung Galaxy A6+ one of the best front and rear camera setup in its class. The dual rear 16MP + 5MP sensors capture amazing photos and videos. And selfies are even better with the A6+ 24 MP front camera and flash.

It has NFC, Bluetooth 4.2 and Dolby Atmos sound that works in headphones and speakers. A 3500 mAh battery keeps the phone running for the whole day.  Though the phone is a bit heavier and feels big, it looks premium and stylish like any flagship phone.
