I have seen few users are complaining about the "Fingerprint" sensor. As a user of J7 Prime and A5 (2016), I have not faced any issue with it. Further I will say J7 Prime's fingerprint is little faster than A5 (2016). Anyway to fingerprint sensor work properly, you finger should be clean, I mean without any water or oily stuff on it. Unless you are a professional cooking chef, you should keep your finger clean. And if you are a chef, than please keep the fingerprint sensor off and use PIN/pattern lock.
Also don't know other Samsung devices, but both J7 Prime and A5 (2016) supports 3 Finger set up. So, you can use both your thumbs and 1 index finger or another person's finger as back, if you share or a minor or someone maintains your device regularly.
Thanks for reading.
Delima, 02 Feb 2017Im using J7 Prime. How do you transfer files to the microSD?Go to "My Files" App. than go to "Device Storage" which is the local phone memory. select the file (e.g. doc, song, video, image etc), tap on the "more" tab on the upper right corner. A new window will pop up showing few options. Select "Move" , than a new window will appera showing "Device storage" and "SD Card". Select "SD Card" and and than either make a folder or choose a existing folder and than tap on "DONE". The file will be transferred.
Remember "MOVE" will transfer the original file and "COPY" will replicate a file.
Also do not move/copy any file you do not understand, it may be a system file and if you do it, than your device may stop to working.
I hope it will help you. Regards.

AnonD-349, 01 Feb 2017Fingerprint scanner is slow.....or it has a bug....Same here. Clean the sensor with a clean cloth.
If you compare j7 prime to J7 16 from gaming.. You should pick j7 16. From my experience. I am having problem with lag on my prime while gaming on this phone. And I heard it why j7 16 is better gaming than prime because prime uses a resolution of 1920x1080 FHD most apps with high graphics cant handle its gpu and j7 16 uses superamoled and 1080x720 which is smoother when it come to graphics games. I wish they could improve gpu for fhd display. But anyways j7 prime is still better than 16 in many other reasons than gaming :)
i have also j7 prime but i think so s secure only availble in 32gb i serched in ply store itis not avilable there

in my opinion,this device perform well..battery life are improve.you got nice quality picture from the camera,video recording also good.Don't know about gaming experience since im into playing mobile gaming.sound are loud,but not that loud as the zenfone 2 or honour 5x(for my opinion).but the fingerprint sensor are not that well.if i pick which fingerprint sensor perform well between j7 prime and honour 5x,i will choose honour 5x.it perform well and can set what fingerprint u can open with..
J7 prime is good phone but I only disappointed with TFT display because Samsung famous for his Amoled display and I want Amoled display on my j7 prime otherwise all is good
