The worst camera of any phone I've had in the past decade.....yes, phones 10 years ago seem to have had a better camera. Also, very disappointed the phone often freezes, even when receiving a text; sometimes phone calls hang up before the phone will switch between an app to the incoming call screen to allow me to accept the call. I've owned this phone for 10-months and already planning to buy a replacement before the end of this month.
This weekend, I got a 1.27 GB OS update to OREO 8.10 version. Came with new Samsung Experience 9.0 UI.
This phone has a weird (poor?) touchscreen you have to press harder than normal for it to register touch.
The 8MP rear camera takes worse photos than any 8MP based phone Ive owned in the past (HTC / Huawei / Samsung / Motorola) The camera firmware is way to aggressive with noise reduction and also has to much image sharpening applied (neither of these can be adjusted even through 3rd party camera apps)
It also lacks a Notification LED, its my first phone ever to lack this feature so it took some getting used to.
Sometimes when clicking a notification on the lockscreen the screen goes halfway dim and wont do anything until you put it in standby / wake up again (kinda annoying)
I haven't experienced any actual lockups or overheating .
The screen quality is decent with accurate colors and can get very bright, it also has very long battery life.
Gaming is decent on it and a little better than previous phones ive owned.
Overall a mixed bag, The meh camera quality especially from a 2017 model makes it hard for me to recommend.
I got this phone April 13th 2018 (4 1/2 months ago). Worst phone I've ever owned. Processor is terrible. Freezes up constantly. Touchscreen is glitchy and won't answer calls. Screen will sometimes shut off after unlocking. Overheats on a 75°F day. About once a day it takes 5 minutes to open a facebook message to respond. If you're listening to any type of music it will randomly pause it.
Don't waste your money, buy something better.
I can assure you that I don't watch porn and mine does the same thing. It also overheats and will randomly reset.
The Samsung Galaxy J7 V is a nice mid-range phone if you're not primarily focusing on gaming, or some other CPU-hogging application. It offers a Octa-Core 2.2GHz ARM Cortex-AF3 processor, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 chipset, Qualcomm Adreno 506 graphics, and 2GB of RAM. It has 16GB storage, which can be expanded 256GB via microSD. It is a pleasure to hold, and is also visually alluring. There is a nice strip across the camera which gives it a nice touch. It has an 8MP rear and 5MP front camera. Its 5.5 inch screen is a pleasant size. It comes with mediocre performance, but has a nice price for its quality. The Samsung Galaxy J7 V is a great mid-range phone that exceeds other phones in the price range.
This phone is terrible. It is agonizingly slow. You can't have more than 3 apps open at a time before it completely freaks out. The camera isn't even worth using because the picture quality is abysmal. I constantly have to remove the battery to restart it when it freezes up on me and it is only a couple of months old.

Anonymous, 14 Apr 2018As a previous comment said, Verizon phone is already unlocked. May use on Att or tmo already.ItÂ’s not from Verizon but from BoostMobile - itÂ’s not unlock. I love to use it on other GSM carrier like ATT or T-Mobile.

Vee , 12 Mar 2018How can I snapshat using Samsung Galaxy J7I think u press home button and power button at same time. Same as my J3 to take screen shot
I like the idea behind this phone. It's as if the Galaxy S4 (my point of reference) took a new form, with the specs being at least quite similar in most aspects.
Anon., 10 Feb 2018Get rid of the bloatware or load a custom Rom, that will make it more enjoyable available for suggestions, but i have installed only 9 extra apps,
