Just got this phone after swapping my iPhone 5s and I am satisfied in general.
Insane battery life-I am getting 5-6hrs screen on time with Wifi and low brightness.While 4hrs on LTE
Camera-With the f/1.9 being impressive in low-light,less grains.
Software-Less bugs,get frequent updates,not the same old Touchwiz looks
Fast charging-Though fast charging is not supported.It charges pretty well on a 5v/2a regular Samsung charger from my S Duos 2
Vibrant display-Just because its not Amoled doesn't mean it sucks.Colors appear to be more natural and not oversaturated.
Temprature-It doesn't heat up a lot.Thanks to 7870 being efficient
Body Build-Finally Samsung thought about it
Fingerprint-not really accurate.I had to register the same thumb 3x to get it more accurate
Front facing camera-Overexposed sometimes,especially when Beauty mode is turned on.
Heavy-Can be very hard to use in one hand
Short wifi range-It has about 15% less range than most smartphones today.
Home button very tactile-Button is on the heavier side.
Gyroscope-Samsung will have to remove basic sensors on mid-range devices
Summary:I usually hate Samsung devices to be overpriced while having a cheap material.But for the J7 prime I am impressed with the overall performance and battery efficiency.Its not that costly too.But in common comparison with the price range.I would go with the Honor 6x/GR5 2017.
I got para from a Mi Note 4 user who sold his device after one month. Here is his words. So, stop curing J7 Prime or any other device. Every device has its own pros and cons like each of us.
Honor 6x users please answer
1. Is Huweai Honor release security patch update frequently/monthly for 6X in india?
2. Loudspeaker performance while playing Music and ringtones volume for incoming calls.
3. Battery backup for moderate users.
4. Low light and day light photography performance.
5. Heating issues.
6. Build quality of mobile.
I think- monthly updates should given by Honor also Like Xiomai gives updates every months to its mobiles like Redmi Note 4 and Mi Max. I used Redmi Note 4 and Mi Max. I sold out Redmi note 4 after one month of its use. Please answer . As I plan buy Honor 6x. Am I in right direction?
my cell j7 prime hanged 2nd time .then till battery shut down it will be hanged .haven't seen this type of hell phone in my life.please don't buy
J7prime is best in all respects no issue good camera and other funtion
Anonymous, 08 May 2017you shut up !! I think you are the one haven't used this phone , in deed this phone lags on games Guys please cool down and chill. Do not heat up in these got weather. We are here to talk and help each other about use of J7 Prime. As for gaming I already said many times that J7 Prime is not a heavy gaming device and Snapdragon/Adreno combination is the best. If you need a reliable device to handle all your normal day to day task than J7 Prime is the best. But if you need a device to play "Dead Trigger", "Asphalt 8", "Fifa" for hours than definitely you should avoid J7 Prime. Even I am thinking to get an Snapdragon/Adreno device to continue to play "Real Racing 3" and "Need For Speed: No Limit". Anyway I hope everything is settle down and this discussion is over here. Regards.

Ryan Marvin, 07 May 2017Bro I am from the Philippines also. Just got J7 Prime as a birthday gift. It's a decent phone.... moreOk bro. Thank you so much for the information. I'm gonna get this phone for my wife.
I am using J7 prime since one and a half month and i am satisfied by its performance.No lagging issue.Processor is very fast.Battery life is decent.It runs a whole day if 90% or above charged.
Both rear and front camera are excellent.The look of this phone is awesome.Its premium designed and just suits in every hand.Overall its a good deal and it will not disappoint the user.
Amol, 07 May 2017This phone is shit according to price I mean ₹ 17000/- No light sensor God who a... moreExactly. Too over priced. Just that people have gone obsessed with this brand and they continue to fool people and grab their money.
SeoUn, 07 May 2017lol you are wrong, are you really using this phone? Mine lasts for a day or two close all apps... moreDude really! C'mon I know all of that. Jeez! I've had Samsung phones for last 7 years. My phone only lasts for 14 hours on moderate usage. I am not a gamer and I browse only through wifi with medium brightness. I am just done with Samsung's mediocracy.
Now we need more and more OEMs to build amazing phones which will force Samsung to innovate on all fronts.
I am uploading regularly images taken by my J7 Prime to my Instagram account. I have not edited them. Just used flash or without flash. Or black & white filter. As I found the black & white images very nostalgic. My account is named as "kunalmzr".

I'm planning to apply for a post paid plan here in my c... moreHonestly saying a car's mileage and a smartphone's battery is heavily depends on the user. J7 Prime has huge 3300 MiH battery. And it lasts for about a normal day with 4G on and moderate usage. Few months ago it lasts about 2 whole days with 3G data on. And if you use Wi-Fi than the result will be similar. Also it has ultra saving mode to save battery which turn the device into a Basu device. Good option if you have to visit a remote village like me where electricity is rare gift. Anyway also battery usage depends on how many apps, specially speaking those apps lile social, chating etc which runs in background and consumes both data/battery.
As for gaming like Clash of clan, Hay day etc will h running monthly on the device as I played a lot of clash of clan and also hay day. Also played a lot of NFS No Limit on this device and reached level 70. Than I left the game because upgrading cars need lots of efforts and time. May be I will get back to the game after few weeks/months. Overall it is a good device for normal to moderate user. Regards.
Anon, 07 May 2017Huawei has a superior finger print scanner, I'm using this phone over 2months and the scanner ... moreThanks for the advice. But I have no idea to change to any other brand now or later. And I have never felt any issues with "fingerprint" sensor of J7 Prime. Remind you that I have total 5 Galaxy devices in my house between me and my father. I use J7 Prime for work, On7 Pro for multimedia (music and video) and 4 year old (yes a 4 year old which is heavily used) my first galaxy device S7392 (with a second original battery) as back up device. My father uses an A5 (2016) and J Max tab.
As for Chinese brands I have nothing against them. But 1) heavily customize skin 2) Chinese language app store and 3) very high specs and funky dual camera set up are not for my taste. Regards.

Phone is really good! Have bought 3 for people in my family. I myself have a s7 and it's almost on par.
Filipo should know how some jealous negative people are, they want to ruin others lives as they do t have a good one.
