The Galaxy On Max looks more premium than its price. You will definitely like it at first glance. The handset has a 5.7-inch display but it feels like a 5.5-inch device and looks smaller than the 5.5-inch iPhone 7 Plus. The beauty of the display gets enhanced due to the slim border on the edge. On the front panel, there is Samsung’s signature oval home button which is also a fingerprint sensor. Capacitive back and overview buttons are provided on both sides.

Sadly the capacitive buttons are not backlit. This means that you will have difficulty using them in the dark. The position of the power and volume buttons is such that they are easy to use. You will get separate slots for SIM and microSD card. The camera on the back is present with a square bulge which is common in Samsung phones. The 3.5 mm audio jack is at the top and the micro-USB port is at the bottom.

The thickness of On Max is 8.1 mm, but feels slim for its size. Weight is 179 grams. You will feel its heaviness during a phone call. Apart from this, you would not want to use the device with one hand for a long time. Due to the curved edges, it is convenient to use it with one hand, but the metal is more slippery. While taking pictures during the review, the Galaxy On Max once almost slipped out of our hands and the reason for this was the metallic back. We would suggest you use a cover for protection.

We like the attention Samsung has paid to the little details on the Galaxy On Max. This phone may seem very big to many people. Due to the metal unibody, it slips in the hands. There should have also been a notification LED which is missing. Apart from this, fingerprints get printed very easily on the display. We had to clean the screen again and again. Overall, the Samsung Galaxy On Max may not have a unique design, but it feels more premium than its price. The handset has been launched in gold and black colors. We received the black color variant for review.

The Samsung Pay Mini app will be pre-installed on the device. With its help you will be able to make UPI payments and mobile wallet is also integrated in it. Sadly, you won’t get NFC and Tap to Pay features in the mini version of Samsung Pay. We tried Paytm and MobiKwik wallets on the Samsung Pay Mini and found it to work. But we missed card payments. If only! We can also leave our debit and credit cards at home.

As expected, the Galaxy On Max comes with Nougat’s features like split-screen multitasking, quick toggles, and a new Settings app. We liked technology like 3D Touch. With its help, long pressing the icon of a selected app brings up many options in the form of shortcuts.

The specialty of the display is that it can be very bright or very dim. We enjoyed watching videos on the phone screen. The sample video also played without any problems. Adequate sound comes from the speaker present on the right side. But at the highest volume the sound starts bursting. We liked the speaker placement, but it would have been better to have stereo speakers.

We liked the face recognition feature. With its help, we were able to unlock the device with the help of face. Samsung should be praised for including this feature at this price. However, this only works when there is suitable lighting. Don’t expect this feature to work in low light. For this situation, fingerprint scanner will prove to be a better option for face recognition.

The phone supports VoLTE. With its help we were able to make calls on Jio network. We found that the phone smoothly connected to 4G networks when available. Call quality on the phone was good.

The 13-megapixel rear camera gives good performance in different conditions. Sample shots in daylight came out with good texture and adequate detail. Focusing was fast and results were accurate.
