Samsung Galaxy J7 Max
The Galaxy J7 Max has a large 5.7-inch Full-HD display which is basically a TFT panel instead of a Super AMOLED display. The built quality of the phone is well and has a unibody design. We were expecting the Exynos 7870 SoC in the J7 Max but it runs on 1.6GHz Octa-core MediaTek processor.For multitasking, it has 4GB RAM and 32GB storage (which is expandable). For such as a big display, we thought that battery would be 4000mAh but it has 3,300mAh. The MAX in the name of J7 is only for its size. About the software, the phone has Android Nougat. Looking the hardware configuration the J7 Max sounds like a decent performer and would be able to should be able to handle all the basics tasks.
In the camera department, Rear is 13 MP (f1.7 + Flash) while front 13 MP(f1.9 + Flash) both cameras comes with LED flash for low-light photography. Beside digital wallets, the Samsung also has added new features to the camera app that called social sharing to attract younger buyers.

The device is smaller than J7 Max and has a smaller 5.5-inch FHD Super AMOLED display. This phone is much comfortable in hand as compared to the Galaxy J7 MAX. According to its hardware configuration, the Galaxy J7 Pro differs from the J7 Max in terms of RAM, storage, processor, and battery. The J7 Pro has 3GB RAM (lesser than the J7 Max), 64GB storage (expandable), a 1.6 Octa-core Exynos and a 3600 mAh battery pack.
It has two color options, Gold, and Black. The design of the phone is beautiful especially in the black color and the phone feels great to hold. As the phone has the Super AMOLED so obviously the display quality of the J7 Pro is much better than the TFT screen on the J7 Max.

The cameras on the J7 Pro are the same as the J7 Max, Rear is 13 MP (f1.7 + Flash) while front 13 MP(f1.9 ). Like the J7 Max, the J7 Pro also features the Social Sharing option in the camera app.
