Samsung J7 Prime isnt that really prime model i think. This phone really sucks for gaming. The touchscreen just sucks. 3GB ram isnt likely useful for this model. Main disadvantage is the screen. im using J7 Prime now, really dissapointed. regret changing from Xiaomi Mi Max which have FAR MORE better performance than this super brand. waste of money. The phone tagline for Wefie also not really at there. As Redmi Pro got much better selfie cam with lower price than J7 Prime. My opinion? no, dont ever buy this low end device. as you also will get low specs in super brand shadow.

... moreThanks for the reply. As for Samsung devices I agree that low end devices specially under 10K (Indian Rupees) are low on specs compare to the new brands.
But above 10K devices are have quality and longer life than other brands. I got 4 devices in house between father and me including a On7 Pro, J7 Prime, A5 (2106) and a J Max (tab) for last few months.
Basically we used them for social networks, official works, net surfing and multimedia. We do not play heavy games, but light games like Clash of clans, hay day, Temple Run 2. Also played Real Racing 3 and NFS No Limit on my J7 Prime for last few weeks.
Anyway I have not faced any problem or issue with them. So, for now I have no plan to change to any brand.
As for Nokia I still say their devices are released in few countries. Until it comes here in India and I got a demo; I will not comment on them. Old Nokia was a legend. I hope new Nokia will also like that . But we have to wait and watch. Regards.

Moto products are no longer as stock as they used to be when Moto was owned by Google. Moto products under Lenevo are not really Vanilla any more.
Don't mind but only the very high end Samsung phones have quality. The low end lack it. It's just that people assume low end Samsung devices are good in performance too just because the high end Samsung devices are good in performance. Have seen many people crying after buying low end Samsung phones as they lag a lot.
I Have used Samsung enough now since last few years and honestly feel its time I go back to the original mobile phone maker; i.e. Nokia now that Nokia is back with pure Android devices and carry that amazing build quality even in the lower end range.
But if anyone wants to still continue investing in low end Samsung phones they can continue to do so.
I had a software update for my J7 Prime this morning. I am in the Philippines.
hi can you give me some advice? Should i go for the samsung j7 prime or gr5(2017)? and why? Thank you. :) i'm so confuse which will i buy :)

This new Nokia is not old Nokia. But it is just a brand under HMD a Chinese company. I don't know about other countries, but in India or still has a lot of ground to cover to reach the quality of Samsung. I mean retail outlets, service center etc. Anyway I will wait til July when the devices will h released here in India. After that it will be clear the new Nokia brand is as good as old Nokia company. I was also an Nokia can and so I will optimistic about it.
As for android 7 on J7 Prime, wait for July. In July j7 prime will get 7 for sure. As for stock android I guess Moto devices are best to experience it, as they first get the Update and upgrades.
And for J7 Prime, personally this is not piece of hardware for me. If I need a powerful hardware than I have bought some other devices like Note 3 etc. But I like J7 Prime because of the Samsung apps like S health, S Focus, S Note etc. Last but not least you have mentioned you have mentioned that "TouchWiz" is slow. I am using "TouchWiz" Since jelly bean OS days. Since last few years it is hugely improved. It supports folder, customize layout and huge themes ranging from 1 Mb to above 100 MB. So a user has huge freedom to customize his device. But if you still think it not suitable for you than you can use any 3rd party launcher like Nova, Go, Smart etc.
Overall my advice fo you wait till the Nokia 6 is released than go do it. Till than use the j7 prime. But never promote that ot is less than Nokia 6. Regards.
Although J7 Prime is a decent enough phone but the Nokia 6 is a better option than this. The Nokia 6 has a better display, better camera and a more latest OS. Also Nokia 6 is faster than J7 prime as it has a more optimized stock nougat while the J7 runs on marshmallow and the samsung skin on top makes it that much more slow. Moreover the Nokia 6's build quality is way better than the J7 prime. Nokia 6 is built with a very high quality single block of 6000 series aluminum. The Nokia 6 has a corning gorilla glass 3 while J7 prime has an unnamed Gorillas glass.
If you want to invest your money in the right device then it is the Nokia 6.
Using the J7 prime right now but as soon as the Nokia 6 releases, will sell my J7 prime and buy the Nokia 6.

Hello. Just got this phone it is very nice. I love it. Except for the sounds it is too low even if volumes are set to maximum. I heard it is a drawback of J7's. Any suggestions how to improve it without rooting the phone or installing 3rd party apps. Thanks.

I have not used any other brands than Samsung for last 4 years. Before that I used Nokia for long time. So I can talk about my experience about Galaxy devices here.
As for the J7 Prime I still say it is better reliable, solid and long lasting device with the trust of Samsung brand. Here in India we use Samsung smartphones along with TV's, refrigerator and other appliances. I notice Samsung galaxy devices more than any other devices.
And as you said that Honor/Huawei device is best gaming. Personally I am a desktop PC gamer, not a smart device gamer. So I will comment on gaming performance of any device.

It is around the same price as the J7 Prime but has 32GB onboard and 3GB ram. It doesn't even get warm no matter which game you use and its superior power management gets me in to the next day with a single charge, meaning 24hours. It's truly the best full metal phone to have.

Anonymous, 02 May 2017I want to know only one thing that , is it have light in both touch keyIt does not have backlight on the menu and back buttons. But unless you are a new to galaxy device you will not miss the backlights. I have 3 galaxy including a J7 Prime, On7 Pro and S7392. All of them has no backlight and now I do not miss it. But my father uses A5 (2016) which has backlights and when I do maintainence on it, the lights looks too distracting to me. Regards.
