Samsung Galaxy J Max review: Not the calling tablet you were waiting for

Samsung introduced the Galaxy J Max in India a couple of weeks ago. It’s a lower mid-range device with a 7-inch display and LTE cellular connectivity. The company is marketing it as a large smartphone instead of a tablet. The company says that it’s a device made for those who want the best of both worlds. There’s a niche market for such devices in India as well as nearby markets – some consumers want cheaper priced 7-inch tablets with cellular connectivity and calling facility so that they don’t have to maintain two devices. They use such devices for daily needs such as calling and emails as well as entertainment needs such as watching movies and streaming YouTube videos.

Chinese smartphone vendor Xiaomi addressed this market with the Mi Max, a recently launched device with a 6.44-inch 1080p display and a 4,850mAh battery. It was launched in May earlier this year. Shortly after, Samsung launched the Galaxy J Max in the same price bracket to compete with the Mi Max. Another Chinese player Lenovo also has a competing device in the form of the Phab Plus, which has a 6.8-inch display but comes with a weak 3,500mAh battery. Samsung says that the J Max is “Made for India”. Let’s see how Samsung’s offering performs in this review.
