Just bought the phone last week and put it through a stress test. Here are my thoughts on it..
1. If you're looking to use Samsung J7 Prime for playing heavy or medium-high FPS games.. I strongly recommend that you DO NOT buy this phone. The laggy-ness is very much real. I've tried a couple of games on it and I'd say I'm pretty disappointed at it's performance. However some games like Cytus is still good to play on it (though there are some minor kinks of lag to it). The lag is tolerable if you're not too sensitive/oc bout it.
2. There are some minor glitches to it but fairly ignorable. Overall for low to moderate use.. this phone works really well.
3. Camera is a bit grainy for my opinion but still fine enough quality.
4. Battery life is outstanding. Though I'm somewhat concerned that it's not exchangeable. I would suggest being careful with handling it. (Ya know.. As much as possible DO NOT use while charging, never drain battery, avoid exposing to heat, and all that crap)
Those are just my observations from it for the past few days. I'm still very disappointed about the game lag thing. Especially since it's supposed to be an upgraded phone and yet J7 (2016) seems to have a better performance when I compare the two. So I wouldn't really recommend buying this phone.

The removable battery is really a good feature as you can carry a spare battery or in case your first battery dies you can change it without taking professional help.
As for me I am very happy and satisfied with my J7 Prime. I have nothing to complain it except I wish the 32 GB was there when I bought it. For now I am waiting for Nouget upgrade. Regards.

I've had phones slip throgh hand multiple times, and samsung hardware handles it perfectly, no scratches without a back cover. Not really considering other brands

I have no use of NFC payments. I don't mind not having a fingerprint scanner. I'm not really into heavy gaming, only medium ones like clash royale, hearthstone.. but I believe it reflects on the overall performance of the device. I don't have LED light on current phone and I'm completely fine with it. I don't have a bike for s bike mode.
And I recently learnt about knox, which samsung apparently has discontinued but I can still use it.. pretty much similar to s secure.
Btw, the secure folder which recently launched on play store, has description that I think suggests it will be available on Samsung devices running nougat.. but I think the A series which recently upgraded to nougat still don't have it.
Overall, I think I should go for J7-6, plus it has a removable battery, which is what I prefer. What do you think?
Anonymous, 17 Jun 2017I'm really confused between J7-6 and J7 prime.
Which one to buy?
Is it worth paying 3k f... moreFirst of all both devices are very different. The different is not just in RAM or screen. But they are targeted for different users. J7 has also has NFC which means you can use Samsung pay/android pay on it, but it lack the small LED light which is very useful on times. As for J7 Prime it is primarily targeted for office use. It got long battery life, S Bike mode, S power saving along with Knox. both Knox and S Secure are different. But it gives you more protection.
Anyway after reading your query I think you are also into heavy gaming. In that case I will say you should buy a Redmi Note 4 or Moto Z. They are good for gaming. But not for long term use. Regards.
i want to buy a mobile which one will be better between REDMI NOTE 4 or SAMSUNG J7 PRIME or SAMSUNG J7 COMMING SOON IN JULY...please tell me what's your opinion...thnx

But if you are a gamer than you should go for Galaxy C9 Pro. That device has better hardware specs for gaming. Though it is costlier than J7 Prime, but still the money will be worth it. Regards.
I'm really confused between J7-6 and J7 prime.
Which one to buy?
Is it worth paying 3k for an extra GB of RAM and the S secure(Yeah I could use it well, and I kinda want it too) but poorer gaming performance and a worser display.
Actually, TFT would be better for my eyes since I use mobile a lot, no?
I don't see any other differences in the two.
Also, do most games lag on J7 prime or just the superheavy ones?
I brought a mobile from soudi Arab but I'm in bangladesh. there are asking for network puk code how can I solve this..it is very argent plz answer me.. and it is j7 prime...
im thinking of buying this phone, is it good? does it take alot of internal space? (ram) because i like to download games. And i dont trust other brands so much tho. Help? whats the advantage and disadvantages of this phone?
