It’s a phone! It’s a tablet! It’s the newly unveiled 7-inch Samsung Galaxy J Max

“Designed for those who are looking for a complete entertainment experience on a mobile device.” That’s a pretty crafty way of dodging typical smartphone and tablet categorizations, with the Samsung Galaxy J Max elegantly walking the increasingly thin line between the two, by sporting a 7-inch screen, but also providing a “convenient calling experience” via an in-box Bluetooth headset.

Instead of worrying exactly what this thing is (a “phoneblet”, if you will), maybe wonder more about its selling points and how it differs from the age-old Galaxy Tab 4 7.0, for instance. Granted, it’s got VoLTE connectivity and dual SIM support, yet the same lightweight 4,000 mAh battery under the hood, and an insufficiently contemporary Android build – 5.1 Lollipop.

The TFT display is as humdrum as ever, at 1,280 x 800 pixels resolution, the 1.5GB RAM sounds like a hardcore multitasker’s worst nightmare, while the 1.5 GHz quad-core processor is without a make and model, so presumably, it’s not a Qualcomm Snapdragon 425 or anything.

That essentially leaves you with a respectable pair of 8/2MP cameras, 16GB expandable storage, and “modern” non-slip grip design. Enough redeeming qualities for a $200-equivalent price tag in India (Rs. 13,400)? All up to you, of course.
