I'm British in Spain just bought Samsung j7 phone. I'm told by shop keeper that this is the same as s7 in England. Have I been conned £195 paid please advise
@Legend I will probably buy it as my secondary phone in future budget because of 5000mah battery
As of now..am pretty impressed with my C7 as prim device and A8 (2016) as secondary, (dumped the J7 2016), the blue colour is absolutely beautiful.
A9 pro is also just pro as the name says
@Legend. ..will consider buying a9 pro as my secondary phone for future budget. ....mainly becos of it's monster battery 5000mah...but now pretty satisfied with c7 and A8 2016....A8 2016 is my secondary phone whilst c7 primary device....
and the blue colour on A8 2016...awesome. .I even dumped j7 2016 for this one...so will have in the future a9 pro as a secondary phone and hopefully iphone 7 plus as my primary. ..
I received an update here in the philippines but the security patch month didnt went up
Bhibi, 31 Dec 2016I would personally suggest you replace it.....there are other phones you can actually buy at a... moreThe J7 Prime is clearly better than the J7 2016.I did a speed test and the J7 Prime is faster.I did gaming on both phones and I prefer the J7 Prime.I took pictures with both phones and the J7 Prime is better.The only thing the J7 2016 is better at is the display,but the J7 Prime's display is not bad.The J7 Prime is better than alot of phones that are more expensive.
It's not like am trying to offend or hurt the feelings of potential buyers and owners of this phone. But if you are into the tech world. ...you will understand what am talking about. But hey.. to at least make them feel better. ..they did though make some sort of dynamic approach on this phone. ..and that is in the home button, the fingerprint scanner. ...and that is...you don't literally have to press or click the home key for the phone to read your fingerprint, but just place your thumb on the home button. ..and it will simply read your fingerprint. ..that's pretty cool. ....but this is what makes it special and the build quality. ....to me.....aside from that, I don't think it's strong enough underhood for geeks like us...and that is...when it comes to performance. ..even though it basically shares same internals of J7 2016...it's not "prime" enough. Even A9 Pro proved to be "pro" enough
Guys. ...some people are getting me wrong here... what am saying is that the Galaxy J7 prime is better when it comes to premium build quality. ..but for gaming compared to J7 2016 is poor. ....Yes..you have 3 gb of ram. ...once again it's not all about putting features in a Smartphone but it's about optimization. ...
This 3gb of ram is not too different from the 2gb you get on J7 2016...and Since I have J7 2016 as a Secondary phone. .I did a speed test against my friend's J7 prime. ...they were pretty neck and neck.. but ram management test I did proved that they refresh a lot of apps and keep system based apps on memory. ....especially the phone dialer. ...The display is pretty good. ....don't wanna criticize it.. but Full HD on TFT? Does that make sense.....? in this world. .....not even kind of....I mean this Is 2016.. and in few hours we will be in 2017.This is not to say the display is bad....but it's subdued. There are other midrange smartphones that are better than this phone. ..including my primary device. ..the Galaxy C7 and the A8 2016...which are truly optimized for gaming, ram management, slightly better camera and so on.So apart from the J7 2016...C7 and A8 2016 make good sense over the J7 prime. ....they even have flagship features at about the same price or slightly more like always on display on and grace UX on a8 2016, and game launcher on the C7..and these two device...especially my C7 is upgradable to Nougat already. ..for the J series. ...it will be a bit late
Anonymous, 31 Dec 2016first Bhibi fixed your grammar your saying J7 2016 is better than J7 Prime in what angle and t... moreNo wonder I said if you re in it for build quality. ...then the J7 prime is no mistake. ... .the 3gb is not even optimizated....am talking of practical stuff here...it refreshes a lot of apps....it's not all about putting features in a phone but it's all about optimization. .and mind you....not only did I offer J7 2016 as an alternative. ..but A8 2016 and C7...these beasts have flagship features like always on display in A8 2016..Grace Ux in A8 2016.. . also in the C7....you have Game launcher just like in the S7.... so read my posts clearly before saying I am making illusions. ....Full HD on TFT Display is not even satisfying anyways. ..no wonder. ..once again. .....I said people who love premium build quality will buy the phone. ..yes it has 3gb of ram...but practically can't keep third party apps in the background. .am talking of practical stuff. ..I have seen it.....A8 2016 and C7 are well optimizated....1 refreshes in each phone. .. Once again. ...it's not just about putting features on a phone. ...but optimization. ..mind you am using Galaxy C7 not J7 2016...it's just my secondary phone
Anonymous, 30 Dec 2016my phone is also encounter the same problem as yoursDo a hard reset (look how to do it on Google...very easy pressing a combination of buttons at start-up). My problem was solved. Your phone will get back to the state when u bought it, so save your contacts and stuff before.
partha, 30 Dec 2016Which mobile is best j7 prime or j7 16buy j7 prime instead of j7 2016 bec j7 2016 is old already and second if you compare bought of the 2 smartphones j7 prime from j7 2016, j7 2016 is no match for j7 prime in terms of its Features and Design.. j7 prime is a monster

I would personally suggest you replace it.....there are other phones you can actually buy at around this price.....with even a better camera and less hanging issues. .....this phone was clearly not optimized. ...no offence. ...and I wonder who was the target with this phone.....build quality?perfect .....Display. ....disappointment. ....performance. ....basically J7 2016 internals but J7 2016 does not hang and killer gaming performance compared to this. ....you would get yourself a J7 2016, A8 2016 ,A7 2016 .....C5...even C7...all these are midrangers with better offerings. ...
I just want some opinion regarding my phone my front cam is lagging. I just bought mine 3 days ago. Was that a default or i just have to make some adjustment on its settings? Or it's not normal? Basically i'm still under on the 7day replacement policy that's why i'm asking first for opinions so that whenever this is not normal i'll ask for replacement
This is a good phone if you re in in for build quality. ..but the display is pretty disappointing......TFT Display in 2016...very disappointing.Gaming performance is also poor. Yes you will run casual games smoothly, like The Subway Surfer, but games like N.O.VA 3 and Asphalt 8 have noticeable lag and frame drops. .very disappointed......not for gamers
