I previously posted my comment on Samsung and have since found out that the reason why I had to replace my charge port was because of overheating burnt it up
Sometimes I've had to rip out the battery out of the phone because you couldn't even hold it was so hot and this is not charging the phone it is just the function of the phone sometimes I had to pull it out of my pocket ready to burn the side of my pants that is so wonderful Samsung I'd rather ugly phone with awesome things then an awesome phone that doesn't function
welcome to Samsung's world it is definitely my last Samsung phone
my other Samsung phone that I bought years ago went out on me and six months cuz it's charging
it will always have problems with charging why
aren't you a big company or just to start up
Best phone I ever owned. Really good price for value. Have had it for about 3 months now. Battery holds very well (3 days on medium usage while keeping brightness fairly low). Seems like the phone doesnt heat up at all, unlike my previous phone which sometimes went over 70 degrees celsius. GPS works great. Performance is satisfying (I dont play Crysis on my smartphone). Recommend.

How can u say battery is poor,its 3300 mah battery; i have note 3 with 3200 and the battery is still strong even after 3 years,this must be even stronger because note 3 has full hd,5.7 inches while this one has 5.5 hd only,so battery must be very powerful.
Anonymous, 18 Jan 2017i have not the 'front' flash option, just flash, and in this case only rear flash works.I don't really need it but thanks anyway. And for the people saying that they have some major problems with this phone, your unit must be bad then. I'm using mine for almost two months now and I did not run into any problem so far. Only thing that happens very rare is that sometimes when I unlock the phone screen brightness seems darker than usual, so I need to lock it and unlock it again, and it goes to normal. I think that is some issue with software, since I saw few of the other people having the same problem. They will probably fix with with Android 7.0, when it comes out. It's really not a big issue to me, since it happens maybe once a week (if) or something. Everything else just works flawlessly, and I'm really satisfied with this device.
I have no issues with anything with my J7 except there is no way to screen cast to a tv or roku in the apps or settings i wish samsung would just put it on the phon with other apps like the s6 and s7 have
Absolutly the worse POS i have used. It is extremly slow. Most of the time the touch screen wont work. It kicks you offline at the drop of a hat. I not only will not recomend it, but would discourage its purchase.

Rav, 18 Jan 2017Go to accessibility settings and enable front flash as notification light. i have not the 'front' flash option, just flash, and in this case only rear flash works.
For LED notification. I found it on,
settings > accessibility > hearing > flash notification
Try this. I don't know. I think people finding this. This is my first android. Bought week ago. J7 2016.

And th... moreYeah, as someone stated there is no notification light, and I still don't get ot why they did not include it, but I can live without that. Only thing you can do is download an app so your front flash acts like a notification light. I think this is it https://youtu.be/ozjZAyvn_Sw
I just purchased the Galaxy J7 2016 & it seems the LED indicator does not light up? And there is no setting for its use in notifications either? It doesn't light up while charging & does not light up/blink when notifications are received...am i missing something here? Why would this feature be taken away?? Does it even exist on this phone? Is there an app i can use to rectify?
HEMAL PATHIRANA, 15 Jan 2017after some updatings (268 + 9mb) I mentioned here there are no issues with my phone and no bat... moreThis is great phone for $175-$240 range. Lots of online tips avail for battery draining apps & such. THESE suck on battery: WiFi always on; Auto updates (Google Play apps esp) Auto sync (do it when needed!!); Background activity!!! (Settings/data/menu: turn off background activity---sometimes you may have to turn on but turnbit back OFF!!! TURN LOCATION OFF if not needed!!! On when needed then off again! ALWAYS dim screen indoors as practice. Videos drain battery and data quickly!! Widgets on in background use juice. MOSTLY: SCREEN/VIDEOS/ LOCATION/WIFI always searching for signals/UPDATES, BACKGROUND & PRELOADING SITE INFO/ UNCHECK MOSY ALL OPTIONS IN SEARCH BROWSER!!! You'll be amazed once you realize YOU HAVE CHOICES TO TURN OFF ACTIVITIES IN BACKGROUND---which often benefit everyone but you!!!!! I am TheWaywardPilgrim @ Geee etc.
