I got this from my mom, when she switched to a J7.
She complained she had too little battery life, but she had a lot of bloatware (Battery savers and performance managers) installed. Also, never turned off Wifi or carrier data.
I rooted it, deleted a lot of games and bloatware, and it ran fine (She bought a new battery a few monts ago). The only downside it got was a permanent screen "burn" on the top part, the Facebook app menu got carved on the screen.
I rooted it to Cyanogenmod 12 (Lollipop) to get Pokemon Go running... It's a bit laggy, but it still goes great for me, even if CM12 drains my battery a little faster.
