For all those who want a gaming or photography smartphone, you're best off looking elsewhere. Save yourself the disappointment because the j7 prime isn't meant to be either of those.
If you want a smooth, battery efficient, and inexpensive smartphone encased in a nice metal unibody with dual sim and dedicated microsd slot, then this phone is worth a good shot.
Sekhar chetry1, 30 Nov 2016I have used it for 20 days.. so time for review.
Cons- 1.Mobile blinks while playing games.
... moreNot a reliable review. Your cons on display and camera are ridiculously exaggerated. Extremely below average? No colors? I mean one can easily tell the camera of the j7 prime isn't very good but to go so far as to give it 2 over 10 is subjectivity at its finest. And the tft lcd display isn't bad at all. It's not at the level of samoled displays but the colors are accurate and nowhere near washed out. You probably are just used to the much more vibrant oversaturated amoled displays.
I agree though that the gaming capability is subpar. But overall the phone is more than satisfactory with a very competitive price.

I have used it for 20 days.. so time for review.
Cons- 1.Mobile blinks while playing games.

3.Mobile hangs too often resulting in app crashes.
4. Camera also hangs sometimez thus missing the required moment to click.
5. Picture quality has so much noise. Looks like black and white picture. No colors. Below comparision with even 5 mp images of chinese brand.
6.video quality is extremly below average.
7. No vibrant colors in playing hd videos like that of those with amoled screens of other brands.
8. Display looks like its washed out. No colors.
9. Finger print sensors doesn't work most of the time and it will make you wait 30 seconds.
10. Sunlight visibility is below average even on outdoor mode. No auto mode.
11. Front camera good only on bright day/ under direct sunlight. No front flash too
12. Got scratches on my screen within 5 days. Had to use tampered glass.
13. TFT LCD screen and display is the worst and cheapest used on j7 prime. Comparing with other amoled screens of chinese smartphone will make you regret chosing j7 prime.
14. Signal strength is not good for 2g networks. 3g/4g and wifi is extremly good.
1. Good looks..! 2.5D curved. Nice metal finished with plastic on front and back end.

15. Water resistance phone. Atleast for 2 minutes.
Verdict- samsung has really disappointed its fans on j7 prime camera and display. Camera is below average only 2 out of 10. Only closeup photos are good. Front camera is good only on great light. No Amoled screen so the colors seems washed out. J7 prime was made in a hurry and no regular usage testing done by its research units.
Samsung has really impressed its fans with midrange phone with dramatic features. 3gb RAM, 16 gb internal storage, fingerprint sensors, 13 MP camera sensors. 8 MP front camera sensors. Gorilla glass 4. Dual sim plus sd card slot. 3100 MAh battery. Metal finish with excellent design. Everything looks good but only on paper.
I'm really confused with j7 prime and p9 lite. J7 prime is bit better tha p9 lite (because of 32Gb internal memory & samsung music player) but The TFT display bothers me. Same for not having an auto brightness. The p9 lite, however, Has better performance (3GB RAM available here), manual camera controls and better display i think, but lower storage and poor music player. Please help
