Samsung Galaxy J7 Prime review summary

The new Samsung Galaxy J7 Prime has been launched at Rs. 18,790 and offers a lot of features. The 4G-enabled J7 Prime sports a metal body, full-HD display, massive battery, and some great software enhancements which make it one of the more interesting choices in the sub-Rs. 20,000 price category. On the downside, we wish that the camera performed a bit better in low light and the fingerprint scanner wasn’t so iffy.

Samsung mistake
By Diamond Inomiesa | 3 Nov 2017 | 3 Nov 2017
I have been an ardent user of Samsung phones. In fact, I was using using the ordinary Samsung galaxy J7, but unfortunately, I lost it to pick-pocket. So following the usual love I had for Samsung phones, I bought the J7 prime..The phone is just two weeks old with me now. It has a good design, and other good t features of Samsung phones, the camera is too dull. I have been wondering whether it is actually a Samsung product. The normal J7 that I lost had a far better camera than the J7 prime. I really regret buying it. I could have bought Infinix Note R Pro for N70,500. But I bought the J7 prime for N87,000 because I trusted in Samsung phones, now I am disappointed. I want to ask whether it is possible to recall this phone to maintain customers confidence.

Samsung Galaxy J7 Prime--My first time with Samsung and Android devices
By T Thompson | 30 May 2017 | 30 May 2017
I decided to switch from a Microsoft Nokia phone after using one since 2014 to a Samsung Galaxy J7 Prime with an Android OS versus switching to iPhone--everyone else in my family has an iPhone and ridicule me for not using an iPhone. I chose the Samsung Galaxy J7 based on cost--it was about 60% of the cost of an iPhone. Cost is a consideration for me since I have lost 4 phones in the last 4 years. The reason this opportunity to switch arose resulted from losing my phone. However, my experience with the Samsung phone has been very disappointing. It performs most the functions I require but I find the user interface to be difficult and not very user friendly (relative to the Microsoft/Nokia phone). For example, the interface does not allow me to determine where data and apps are stored in some cases (i.e. internal vs. SD memory). One aspect of the Samsung that is PARTICULARLY ANNOYING is the constant add pop-ups that take place on the phone. It seems almost every application comes with one or more adds that constantly interfere with the use of the phone. The poor harassed user seems to have little or no control over these adds popping up all the time. This Samsung model was about 30-40% more expensive than an equivalent Microsoft-Nokia model. I regret not sticking with the Microsoft phone after a months experience with the Samsung model. I could offer more specifics but what I state above seems sufficient.
