Samsung mobile have released two new handsets in the ‘On’ series of phones, the On5 and the On7. These phones are completely media centric and have been released only in the regions of India and China as they have been made with the sole purpose of being budget devices for the masses. The smartphone market leader now with the new phones aims to capture the lost ground back from Indian companies like Micromax who have been selling their phones like hot cakes lately pushing the market share of Samsung all the way down to 22% in the recent quarter. So what makes these phones so good that Samsung has so many of its hoped pinned on them? We are going to check them out right here.
Samsung Galaxy On5:
The On5 gets a 5 inch 1280 x 720p HD display with a 1.2 GHz Quad core Exynos 3475 processor, Mali T720 GPU and 1.5 GB of RAM. It has an 8MP shooter on the back and a 5MP on the front of the device. It gets a 2600 mAh which seems tad small for these days and come with Android 5.1 Lollipop out of the box. The phone comes in a dual SIM avatar and LTE capabilities with the cost of around INR 8,990/-
Samsung Galaxy On7:
This device gets a larger 5.5 inches HD display of the same 720p resolution and almost the same specs inside as well like the 1.3 GHz Quad Core and 1.5 GB of RAM. There is 8GB of internal storage available on the device along with MicroSD card capability of up to 128GB which is also common for both phones. The main difference in this device is the 13 MP camera on the back which makes it an able camera phone as well in today’s times. It also gets a larger 3000 mAh battery and costs INR 10,990/-
What is the main USP of both the devices is the presence of MixRadio which used to be a Nokia product before until they sold it off. Both the phones come with the app out of the box with boasts of over 30 million songs in its database and Samsung also promises an UDR (Ultra Data Saving) mode thanks the amazing compression technology that is on place.
With this move Samsung who has their own music service called Milk music is being shut down due to this move by the end of this year. Samsung will be hoping that music lovers all over the world will consider this device for their need of music, but if you ask us, this might not be the best way to go because MixRadio was not that big a hit when with Nokia because of the immense competition out there from other apps in the same industry and maybe Samsung might find it out too but the hard way.
