The Samsung Galaxy J7 has been released in June 2015, while the Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 has been available since February 2016. Today we will compare these two smartphones and depending on your tastes, you’ll decide which we will let you decide which phablet is perfect for your needs.
The Samsung Galaxy J7 measures 152.2×78.7×7.5mm and weights 171 grams. Don’t have high expectations from its design, as, a year ago, Samsung was still not ready to ditch the traditional polycarbonate back with a plastic frame. So, the device is available in three colors: white, black and gold, and the design is very simple. On the other hand, the Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 is thicker and lighter, as it measures 150x76x8.7mm and weights 164 grams, but that’s because it features a full metal body. Under the rear camera located in the top center you’ll find a fingerprint scanner.
The Galaxy J7 comes with a super AMOLED display of 5.5-inch that supports a resolution of 1280×720 pixels at 267 ppi. The Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 features an IPS LCD display of 5.5-inch that supports a higher resolution of 1920×1080 pixels at 403 ppi.
