I bought the phone upgraded already. I chose this because the battery is removable. This phone works good for me and I don't notice problems at all. Yes it takes time to charge the battery but it lasts long with heavy usage.. I wished if the screen was full HD. It is a good HD screen. I hope not to face problems in the future.
I been using this phone for abut 6 months now and overall it's a good phone. But the lack of the light sensor and delayed updates really bothers me. If your are wondering about buying this phone I suggest that you buy an "A series" phone instead.
Its a fantastic phone. But I didn'tidn't gets any update for two months so far . Last update I got is November 1 2016. Did they stop supporting j7 2016. I am from India
Crocop, 10 Feb 2017Yeah, it will probably run it without any problems. I run games like Ashpalt 8 on high setting... moreits really a good device.camera is sperb. display 264 ppi is low but with a super amoled it looks good. it can handle the games very well there is no lag. j7 prime is also a good buy but if you need a good camera and better display you should go with j7(2016).
the cons are-
1) battery backup
3) sleek design(7.8mm)thin
4) octacore exynos 7850 processor
5) balanced performance with 2gb ram
6) runs high end games well
7) ram management is good
1) no fingerprint scanner
2) there should be 1gb more ram at this price bracket
yeah when i switched the network to 3g/2g. the drainage of cell standyby reduced to 11% also i turned off the loctioj settings. yes u r right i actually live in an area which have poor cellular reception. thanks for ur response. ur suggestions worked for me
Anonymous, 06 Feb 2017I'm afraid to update. I got the update.Make factory reset then update. I have marshmallow system and my phone works very good
rehan2222, 10 Feb 2017plz anybody tell me how to disable "cell standby". it is draining my batter very fast take awa... moreThat's normal! When you use wifi ofcourse it will not drain so fast, but when you use mobile data the battery will last 6-7 hours.
I never gonna update this phone. Scary feedbacks day by day. No any issues. Only problem for me is battery charge fully in less than hour and it will last for 2-3 days without any problem.
Anonymous, 11 Feb 2017Why no updates in india from two months?Same here in Croatia. Last one I got was in December, when I bought my phone. I turned it on for the first time and there was an update. It was around 250mb as far as I remember, so it was probably December security update or something. But when you think a bit, maybe it's even better if we don't get those updates people got because I saw there are some battery issues when you install it.
rehan2222, 10 Feb 2017plz anybody tell me how to disable "cell standby". it is draining my batter very fast take awa... more"Cell Standby" is the radio connecting to the cellular network. It uses a lot of battery when you're in an area with weak signal. You've only got a few options: put the phone somewhere with better signal (may not be practical), go into advanced settings and force the phone to a slower rate (3g / 2g) - this may or may not save power depending on the frequencies in your area, turn on WiFi and use that for internet, and finally, turn off cell reception completely by putting the phone in "airplane mode". If you then enable WiFi you can use those portions of the phone fine.
Aftr updating to jan 17 Sec patch, I noted the J7 2016 battery is get down very fast. Im not user of heavy games, 4G only do is us FB, watch videos, and use whatapp but according to my prior experiance the battery level go down very fast :(

Anonymous, 10 Feb 2017This phone run smooth "Words Fabric Works" game? it need some cpu computation power and my S2 ... moreYeah, it will probably run it without any problems. I run games like Ashpalt 8 on high settings without any issues. I did not experience a single lag or stutter since I bought it. It's really great device, and definitely go for it. People saying that it lags probably have faulty units or maybe they think of J7 2015 model.

This phone run smooth "Words Fabric Works" game? it need some cpu computation power and my S2 tablet does not run it smooth...
