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.

I wanna confir... moreI am using J7 Prime for last few months and never faced any issues like heating, freezing, lagging or hanging. But again these are common problems to any android device and unless you do some regular maintainence it will happen to any device.
Overall I like my J7 Prime for these reasons. First it's design and build quality. It looks more premium than the price. Second, screen. It is LPS TFT which do not heats up and easy on eyes. Third, battery life. I use 4G data on for whole day. With normal to moderate use it last 12/15 hours easily. Fourth, it's features like Knox, s folder, s health, s Note (It works on it) etc. Overall at this price it is excellent option of you need a reliable device for next 2 years at least. Also it will get Android 7 upgrade on July.
As for downside, it does not have NFS, so Samsung pay do not works. Second thing is 16 GB ROM. It quickly fills up with cache and app data. So you need to run the "Smart Manager" every few days. But now 32 GB version is also available, which is better.
Overall this my first Metal device from Samsung, but not first galaxy. I visited the shop to buy either J5 or J3; but I took a demo of J7 Prime and now it is an essential part of my life. Regards.
m.sabry, 02 May 2017Very nice camera ... And nice taker Thanks for the compliment. :-)
