But, how well does it stack against the competition? Let’s take a look at why you should or should not buy the Samsung Galaxy J7 Prime.

As we have already hinted, the design & build work in its favor. The chunky plastic body toàn thân with hideous chrome finished side frame that we have come to lớn associated with J-series phones are gone for good. The Galaxy J7 Prime definitely looks premium (more so in Black).


The metal back that tastefully folds to form right edges, the 2.5 chiều curved glass covering the fascia from head to lớn toe, skimmed bezels, witty speaker placement on the right edge, & the agreeable slim profile – All địa chỉ cửa hàng up khổng lồ an attractive & ergonomic handset.


The minimalist, flat back cover – with just the Samsung branding and a camera module that sits flush with it- doesn’t mở cửa and thus all slots, buttons and ports are housed on the edges. Save for the home button, of course, which also reads your fingerprints for secure unlocking (you need khổng lồ press the button first).

The metal unibody kiến thiết also means that unlike most other J series phones, the battery isn’t removable. With most manufacturers sticking khổng lồ non-removable batteries, this isn’t that big a giảm giá these days.


Thankfully, Samsung has provided dedicated MicroSD thẻ slot and Dual SIM thẻ slots, both mounted on the left edge. A majority of users will need to use both at some point in time.

A lot of potential buyers are already cynical about the J7 Prime display, simply because it’s a TFT panel. The practical experience, however, confirms otherwise.

The 5.5-inch Full HD panel on Samsung J7 Prime actually looks pretty decent. The TFT factor only weighs in when you look at it from extreme, rather impractical angles – something you don’t really need khổng lồ care about.


Colors are punchy and blacks are deep, trying hard to lớn duplicate AMOLED impact. You can’t tweak contrast and màu sắc temperatures from the settings menu, but the mặc định selection is pretty good, leaning slightly towards cold whites.

Maximum brightness is quite high, thus outdoor visibility shouldn’t be a problem. However, you will have khổng lồ manually toggle brightness level or kiểm tra the outdoor mode since Samsung is still adamant on not adding an ambient light sensor on its J-series phones.

It must also be noted that the Galaxy On Nxt which is virtually the same as the Galaxy J7 Prime, save for more internal storage, has warmer màu sắc tones that look better in our opinion.

Performance và Software

The Samsung Galaxy A7 Prime is powered by 1.6GHz Exynos 7870 octa-core processor paired with 3GB RAM và 16GB storage. After loading all the apps I frequently and rarely use and one gaming app, I had around 6GB space free. That’s where the MicroSD card tư vấn (256GB) should come in handy.

In day-to-day usage, the Galaxy A7 Prime doesn’t falter that easy. At the same time. Performance isn’t impeccable either. We did encounter some random freezes once or twice in our two weeks with the device, but it was mostly smooth sailing.


The high-end games we tested were playable, though the gaming experience wasn’t as smooth as on the Galaxy J7 2016. Casual games like subway surfer and Leo’s fortune ran fine. It must be noted that ứng dụng data cannot be moved to SD card. You will have to lớn keep all your games on the internal storage.

The RAM management is a bit aggressive. If you admire the convenience of more than 2 or 3 apps running in the background, the Galaxy J7 2016 might disappoint you. I could conveniently switch to & fro between Kindle, browser và notes app, but the phone kept terminating apps at times when I had to lớn toggle between more demanding ones lượt thích Uber, Google Maps, and MX Player.

The software is apk Marshmallow based TouchWiz that integrates a bunch of J-series exclusive S-features, Microsoft apps, Google Apps and a few Samsung Apps as well.


The S-Planing feature & Secure folder are a couple of interesting additions. With S-Planing, you can reserve some amount of date for calls, access battery saver and choose a contact to forward your calls in case your battery dies. It works as advertised và we found ourselves using it frequently whenever the battery was about to lớn die but we didn’t feel like charging.

The Secure thư mục lets you địa chỉ dual apps and secure content with a separate pattern or finger impression. Then there is the usual S-Bike Mode and UDS.

The TouchWiz launcher still feels a bit overwhelming to lớn us, và so we replaced it with our current favorite pixel launcher after a couple of days. There is nothing else to complain about.


Samsung is using the same camera module as in the Galaxy J7 2016, and the resulting performance is more or less the same too.

The Camera clicks decent images in good lighting, be it indoors or outdoors. Shutter tốc độ is fast and the camera lands focus reasonably fast as well.


In low lighting, the images chất lượng deteriorates rather dramatically.

The camera on the Galaxy J7 Prime won’t be giving it any clear cut edge, but it won’t drag it down either. There is definitely room for improvement here. A more robust Pro mode would be a good start.

Let’s explore the camera further as we go through the image samples below.
