I have found that I can use "My Knox" as a proper alternative launcher! I mean it is not virtual but another Launcher with apps with other gmail/email accounts. E.g. after 15 long years I opened my second gmail account and decided to manage/store all my professional contacts on this account.
As for changing lsunchet you can jump between them by eitger taping on the icon on the Homescreen or from notification menu. Of all these features I found this own the most important one. When I bought J7 Prime, my goal is to use it as a productivity tool. But I don't know that this mid range device has security feature which can be as good as high end device.
Anyway I am working on my video and will share it to show how these small features are used. Regards.

Anonymous, 02 Jul 2017dont know why but since last few months my phone is taking 4-5hrs to charge. I alsways charge ... moreDeplete (empty) your battery till 0% and charge completely to full 100%. Make sure you use original box charger only or a 5V~1.5A charger. Let the phone be switched off while this complete charge. This will solve the issue. You can repeat this procedure monthly to maintain battery calibration.

Under APP POWER SAVING section, click on DETAIL. Here switch this on, and select all apps to ALWAYS SAVE POWER. This procedure will solve your problem.
I am seriously thinking to making a video about true experience of using my J7 Prime for last 6 months. Personally I was more than happy and satisfied with this device. It is my first Metal unibody device and I was very afraid of these types as I saw many cheap Chinese models are infamous for overheating and poor battery life. Anyway I personally never felt those two deadly issue with my device. Also I notice that a famous Indian smartphone reviewer called J7 Prime a garbage device after comparing it to a popular cheap Chinese device. I strongly protest it and unsubscribed from his Channel and decided not to visit his channel in future.
First J7 Prime is very able and worthy productive device and Second my J7 Prime is made in India which I am very proud of.
As for the the Knox feature I am still working it. Also I have found some very interesting side about it and I will share them here in few days. For now when I was buying J7 Prime, my priority is security and productivity. Now I feel that it is very worthy in these aspect. Regards.

Knox is for any Samsung phone, S Secure is pre-installed only in J5 prime & J7 prime, S secure is USP this 2 devices. S secure is a variant of Knox, which creates a secure parallel space on your device so that you can hide or protect apps & files, but Knox has this plus more advanced features. You don't need to use both, any one is sufficient.
After the Nougat update, you're not happy with Settings Menu & missed Smart Manager, in A5 2016 opinions myself responded to user "oops" on 23-june :
"If you've bought this device recently, then go ahead for the updates.
If you've been using the device since a year or more, then do not update to Nougat. You'll be getting the new OS at the expense of the features from Marshmallow plus it's TouchWiz, which you might be using since long and might be accustomed to. You may miss them."
dont know why but since last few months my phone is taking 4-5hrs to charge. I alsways charge overnite. But 4-5hrs is too long.
are you guys also recording similar charging issue or should I take it to service center???
I removed a app called "My Knox"; I found it on galaxy app store. I thought it was a good choice. Yes, if you have J7 Prime 32 GB or 64 GB version. But no, if you have a 16 GB version like me. If you have S Secure folder than it is enough or you can still download My Knox app and use it. But only of them. If you try both of them together then you will screwed up you life and device. I just removed that app and found 1 GB ROM missing from my device. Now seriously I am looking every app. Because every MB and Second counts. But I will not play Clash of clans and NFS for now.
mdtrpa, 01 Jul 2017Are those apps Google Play Store & Google Play Services? Which you removed and were inside... moreThere are some default apps like contacts, emails, gallery play store etc which can't be removed. But if you diable S Secure and Knox they will also be disabled from those private state.
As for apps I notice few Google apps like Maps or images there which can be directly disabled. As for other apps I have words, execl, memo, evernote etc.
Actually I also notice BB messenger, Google sheets and some other apps in Knox which was really amazing. Actually I installed those apps 2 or 3 months ago and tried them. In that period I also added them to Knox. But after few days I renove them and forget about them. Even I removed than from normal Play store, not from play store of Knox and S Secure. So, they are still there updating themselves and in working condition. Today I noticed them and very surprised. In a hurry I removed them.
Anyway I found this feature a killer thing. I mean you have private gallery where you can store images, a BBM/WhatsApp for private person chat, word/excel files which are very secured. Also If you lost your device, you can directly delete all your private data by logging into Knox from any other device. This is superb thing. Irony is I found this amazing thing using my J7 Prime after 6 months.
Seriously I may not upgrade to Nouget to lose these interesting feature. I already lost smart Manager on father's A5 and the new setting menu in Nouget just sucks.
Overall I think Knox and S Secure is just amazing. It is like having 2 devices. I am setting up my Knox and S Secure this Sunday for more use. Regards.

You guys will never believe this. For last few weeks I noticed my ROM in J7 Prime is filling up very fast. It left less than 1 GB. I was panicked and though why this thing is happening. Even I removed clash Of clan and NFS No Limit; but still it is no major effect. I was seriously thinking to reset my device. But I am waiting for Nouget upgrade. Anyway today I was checking my device and opened My Knox, S Secure folder. To my surprise I saw some app's icon there which uninstalled from my device few days ago. I thought may be they are false icon and will not open, but they open and worked. So I removed than from there also (e.g. My Knox and S Secure folder). Now I got around 500 MB free space.i will remove some more apps from there. Anyway it is a great feature that you can use some apps very privately in your device, but be careful of putting apps there. You should not put every app there. If you are facing same thing than you should also check My Knox and S Secure folder ASAP. Regards.
