Hey guys! Samsung Galaxy J7 Prime is a good phone actually. It is cheaper compared to other devices. Yes, it has its issues like the cheap screen but it's not really that bad. I'm using this phone for about 4 months and I really like it. Camera quality is good. Focus is fast. What's even good here is that the phone's battery lasts a day! Only 1 charge cycle per day is enough to keep this phone going. The design is also great and it is very comfortable to hold in the hand. Also, the device supports dual sim stand by. One sim could be an LTE capable while the other 3G capable. Great 32gb internal storage that could be expanded with a 256gb sd card slot. Overall, this phone is awesome at a cheap price :)
Anyone facing issues with GPS?
Mine looses signal if not used, sometimes within hours, and only a restart will fix it.
Had to install "GPS Status" to keep it up to date, but still looses GPS signal after 3-4 days.
It might be mine only though.
Kagawari Ane, 31 May 2017I'm planning to buy a new phone. What am I going to choose? Either Samsung Galaxy J7 Prime or ... moreGo for J7 Prime. It is a complete package for normal to moderate user. It got every thing. As for OPPO F3, it has high specs on paper, but a mediatek processor is no match for a ExyNos of J7 prime. And J7 Prime will get Noughet upgrade in few weeks. As for camera performance if you have doubt on J7 Prime, than check my Instagram account "kunalmzr" where I have uploaded many images taken by both front and back camera. Regards.
kencantor, 31 May 2017Buy an F3. I had chosen J7 Prime over Oppo F3 and now I regret it. Read below. I posted this c... moreIt is unfair that you are saying J7 Prime is worthless because it has compatibility issue with gaming joystick. Come on man, how many normal users use a joystick to play games with their smartphones? Don't know about others but I am a PC gamer and I used wheels/joystick to play games on PC. As for my J7 Prime, it is a divine gift for me. Because now everytune I have to check emails, facebook, internet I do not have to start the laptop/desktop. Also now I can carry my docs on the go and use word, excel, PowerPoint on the go. Last but not least I manage all my SIMs, digital TV and money through it. Last but not least the Samsung Apps help me to manage the things very easily. Also I am playing clash of clans and Need For speed No Limit on it occasionally to cool of my heat. Anyway it is a excellent choice with reliable hardware and service back up by Samsung. If you want a device just for gaming, buy Xiaomi or Lenevo devices. But for normal to moderate user J7 Prime is better choice than anything in the market. Regards.

People posting that there is a problem on games with joystick, you are all right. It is not the application's fault. There is an issue with the touch. My J7 Prime right now is in the service center. The touch and hold is not always responsive and doesn't hold as it should, it registers single taps instead of a hold. So there are times when you navigate with joystick and it does not stick with the finger you use for navigation. They said they will troubleshoot my phone and will contact me within 3 to 5 days. They still have not contacted me and still cannot figure out or repair my J7 Prime. Disappointing. I really wanted this phone so bad so I have chosen to buy this instead of other brands, now I am regretful. There is a Samsung Community and there you can browse a thread regarding the touch issue. Moderators have replied but said they don't experience it with their test units.
I went to their Service Center twice. When I first brought my phone, said I am having issues playing, they seem unconvinced that I am having issues and stating that the problem is with the game. They said they fixed the phone by updating the software and I accepted the release and hoped that there will be no more issue. Unfortunately, the issue occured again and I had patiently tried to find a way how I can show them it is not the game or any application's problem. Lucky I tried and tested with the built in test modules and discovered that the touch and hold consistency really have a problem. I recorded my tests and showed them. They tried the tests too and experienced the issue. Now i have to wait 3 to 5 days because they said the will "troubleshoot" my phone. It is day 3 now. I am wondering how busy their technicians are. So, my opinion is I am not recommending this phone or any Phone from Samsung, their Customer Service is crappy.

KunalMzrGalaxyUser, 30 May 2017If you need device only for gaming, than go for Snapdragon/Adreno combo, probably 6** series. ... moreNot all 6xx series processors are good for gaming. The Exynos 7850 found in J7 prime is between the Snapdragon 617 and Snapdragon 625 in terms of performance.
Phone with me to four months. Is too good for phone all over. Buy J7 my friend you no more sorry to get phone.

It can never match the contrast levels and pitch blacks of an AMOLED display. AMOLED also has superior brightness and viewing angles, along with higher refresh rates.
Aymon, 30 May 2017but the display is not bad . i am using . u cant difference it with s.amoled. samsung display ... moreOh you're very wrong. There's a huge difference between Super amoled and the normal LCD PLS display in J7 prime.
I have this phone about 4 months. Every thing is really good. Display is fine except in direct sunlight.
The main problem in my opinion, the phone is not handy, and may slip from your hands.

I've been using J7 prime for about 5 months now and I can say that it is really an awesome phone. Battery life is good compared to other phones, even when it comes to gaming, watching videos, and playing music. It doesn't even lag for android games like NOVA, Asphalt 8, mobile legends, coc, modern combat 5, etc. for the network and connectivity, it will depend on your location.. if location provides LTE, then browsing and internet is not a problem..lastly, despite of screen being run on tft, display and graphics are still good and superb. i recommend this to anyone interested.
