You are all talking crap. I have j7 2016 with same cpu and lower ram. And its working very smooth no lag at all.
Before it, i used xperia z1 z2 galaxy note 3. All are similar with very smooth lerformance. Only galaxy s5 that i used was very slow and laggy.
To someone who said xperia sp is smooth. I used that before and its top 1 on my list of slowest android phones. Ask any one who has owned it

Like I pay more, but I'm getting a Samsung phone that was once their top tier, which means I'll get updates until the Android's limitation, and everything is well-made and would last really long.
If I could fix my bootlooped LG G4, I'll stick with it for another 2 to 3 years, but if not, S7 Edge is definitely my top pick.

But for the same price, one can simply get other better options like the Zenfone 3 or Zenfone 3 Zoom. The former doesn't match the J7 Pro in display and battery life, but everything else is much better. The latter, no doubt, is much better.
And I'm saying this because I have tested my Zenfone Max to last really long, as long as you can keep it damage-free (I did crack my screen once on a concrete road in an accident and both proximity sensor and SIM signal receptor have been damaged, but they got fixed already and I have no issues so far).

I guess I'll just get my sister's bootlooped LG G4 repaired because it is cheap, it is a flagship (more support), better screen and almost everything except maybe battery life.

I guess it depends on the person's preference, because my sister used to have the LG G4 (same screen as the V10, just different size) before it bootlooped, and man, the screen was awesome even for an IPS LCD! I already saw the J7 Pro's screen too and it is very impressive for the first 30 minutes of using it. Afterwards, it would feel like an ordinary screen that is just brighter and deeper blacks. Not saying it is a bad screen, but it's nothing sort of special, and I'd get the higher resolution instead, because I'm not a fan of Diamond PenTile pixel matrix.
xXENDER FREAKXx, 16 Nov 2017I guess it is based on how the GPU handlesOkay, that kind of sucks. SD801-powered devices with relatively similar benchmark results could handle the same thing without any problem.
I wanted to buy this but I saw a 64gb galaxy c7 on offer for 300 dollars a 16mp back camera plus a free Samsung speaker. I am glad I made that choice

In my opinion this phone is worth its money. It is in top 10 trending phones for past many weeks now. Do you think that is also a BS

Roll back the youtube app to the factory version and see if you get the option back. My A3 got the option for 480p (factory version only allowed 360p) after I updated my Youtube app.
I guess I've missed it but its difficult to make sense of a review without seeing how much it costs. In the specs page, it shows 300 EUR which is asking too much. Go a bit higher, one purchase an S7.

Dont buy this phone people, it has the worst processor in the price range, a GPU even worse than the old Snapdragon 615. My 4 year old Snapdraagon 600 phone outperforms this.
There are literally hundreds of options in the price range, including phones with decent chipsets like SD 652/650/625/Helio X20/Helio P25.
The processor is THE most important aspect of the phone as everything you do on the phone will be dictated by the processor. The whole user experience will be marred.

At least on my a5 2016 I HAD 1080p 60fps and after some time it has been disabled. And it has pretty much the same gpu performance as J 2017 series.
AnonD-517207, 16 Nov 2017I was double minded once I read negative comments but here is what I have to tell you after I ... moreseems like a pretty decent mid-ranger. i had the j7 prime for a year but then sold it. this seems to have improved upon the less than average camera of the prime as well as its rather disappointing tft lcd screen. i was a year too early.
I was double minded once I read negative comments but here is what I have to tell you after I bought it last month :-
1. Screen is awesome and it is better than even high dpi lcds (I have a LG V10 and its screen is not better than J7 Pro)
2. Camera is surprisingly very good both front and back
3. Aluminum unibody design has very premium feel. Beside it is very good to look at. I recommend black colour.
4. People who are concerned with GPU... I have tried heavy games and it has no problem. In fact I play Real Racing 3 and NFS most wanted daily without any issues
5. Battery endurance is superb. With very very heavy usage it lasts 18 hours but remember 18 hour is the maximum we remain awake in a day so no issues. With moderate use battery lasts 48 hours.
6. Having a dedicated sd card slot in a dual sim phone is a big advantages don't you think?
7. People complain it is fragile etc. Listen to me people drop this phone, iphone x and galaxy note 8 together I bet results won't be different so stop complaining about that.
Few of the drawbacks :-
1. Very slippery without cover
2. No backlit capacitive button
3. No notification LED ( All notification are reflected in phone's always on display feature which is kinda cool)
4. Not water proof but who uses this feature expect for few experimental geeks. If I have a water proof phone even then I will never put it in a water
