Performance and Processor:
The octa-core Exynos 7870 SoC powers the Samsung Galaxy On NXT, clocked at 1.6GHz. This is combined with 3GB of RAM and 32GB internal storage. Most of the frequently-used apps load without any major delay. There is a slight delay for apps to open when you compare it with Snapdragon 820-powered smartphones.
Device temperature is well-checked on the Samsung Galaxy On NXT. The processor is throttled to ease heat levels, although the processor does go to its max clock speed when the performance demands it. Smaller games like Zig-Zag or Drop are very playable, and opening multiple apps, like email, text messages, social media and music streaming still keeps the smartphone fluid, without any noticeable disruptions.
The lack of a noise-cancelling microphone has a slight impact on earpiece audio quality, but for the most part, the Galaxy On NXT is fairly reliable.

Galaxy On NXT comes with 3300 mAh nonremovable Battery.

Samsung Galaxy On NXT being a reasonably decent mid-range Android smartphone, it is not very recommendable. Performance is good but is not among the best in its class. The camera is underwhelming, and although it is well-built and has a decent display, the likes of Lenovo Z2 Plus and Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 are much better overall smartphones. If the camera and battery life are your priorities, the Zenfone 3 Laser and Max make a case for themselves.
