Samsung J7 Prime Features and Review

Learn More About Samsung J7 Prime

Samsung has enjoyed a sort of dominance over the mobile market like no other maker. They have phones in every price and performance class, offering something for literally everyone. The Samsung J7 Prime is the Korean company’s attempt to offer something that’s powerful in a somewhat lower cost range.

Samsung Galaxy J7 Prime does come with some fairly notable specifications for a sub-20K phone, but we’ve commonly seen flagship specs falter as it pertains to producing a good user experience. We used the Samsung Galaxy J7 Prime as our daily driver for over a period of 10 days, and here is our experience with all the telephone

Specs along with the Other Numbers

First off, here’s what Rs 18,790 gets you: Samsungs own Exynos 7870 Octa-Core CPU (1.6 GHz Cortex-A53) paired with 3GB of RAM. For individuals who may not be knowledgeable about the SoC, the Exynos 7870 comes in an arrangement of eight A53 cores which can be clocked up to 1.7 GHz and can run displays up to 19201200 resolution along with support for Image Signal

Processing for up to two 16MP cameras.

Nevertheless, Samsung constructed a microSD card slot onto the phone that supports cards up to 256GB in capacity. There are also two sim-card slots, and no, one of them isn’t used up by the microSD card slot.

Assemble & Design

Unlike the non-main products that Samsung has released before, the Samsung Galaxy J7 Prime is actually really well assembled. It doesn’t exude the elegance of the Edge 7, but the build is extremely nicely put together. The telephone has a metal assemble with all the front being protected by Gorilla Glass. The edges of the glass combine effortlessly into the body, leaving no obtrusive edges.

The back is smooth with the camera unit and flashes sitting flush together with the body. Interestingly though, Samsung has set a mono speaker on the ride side of the phone instead of the underside. The power button sits well-spaced from the loudspeaker as well as the left side of the telephones are adorned with the volume rocker. A fairly normal configuration of button placement. The build is what you would expect from a phone in this price range, so that should provide you with some peace of mind.


Displays are kind of Samsungs thing. The Galaxy Note 7 came with the finest AMOLED display yet, but regrettably, the cell phone couldn’t stop exploding and had to be pulled off the shelves. Interestingly, Samsung has picked to go with a 5.5inch 19201080 TFT-LCD screen for the Galaxy J7 Prime, a type of a deviation from its forte.

The screen has a pixel density of roughly 400 pixels per inch, satisfactorily dim to render the somewhat gratifying quantity of sharpness. Using the telephone under the midday sun, the display is adequately bright, with good colors and contrast. Regrettably, the top glass panel on the phone is rather reflective in nature and in bright light, hinders great legibility.

User Experience

Utilizing the telephone over the course of 10 days, there’s a lot that may be said about the way the software and hardware come together. The phone runs Samsungs heavily customized TouchWiz UI which hosts Android Marshmallow at its heart. Upon booting up the phone, our unit froze on the country selection display and had to be force-rebooted. A mild hiccup which we got past pretty easily.

During the setup process, the phone will ask you to setup not just the pin and fingerprint locks, but also S-Power Planning mode and S Locker, two characteristics that Samsung seems to have developed with India in mind. We chose to set up all of these after.

The Photography Prowess

Samsungs Galaxy J7 Prime offers 13 MP on its primary camera and 8 MP count on the front. Neither camera offers RAW output so that’s a bit disappointing. The main camera sports several shooting modes such as Panorama, HDR, Night Mode, Beauty, Sport and Sound, and Photo.

The auto mode functions as you’d expect, however, the master mode only gives the capability to adjust white-balance between preset modes (no ability to set custom color temperature), correct ISO and tweak exposure compensation. In all honesty, the expert mode is significantly lacking in features and you’re better off using a third party app that gives you more control.

Overall, the camera operates very well during the day, with images that are pleasingly saturated and capture a decent amount of contrast. At night time though, the focus is really frustrating and also the Master styles lack of manual focus adds to our woes.

The front facing camera is an 8-megapixel shooter and it’s a decent performer. We’d recommend finding a light source to light up your face (or group) if you’re trying to take a selfie in low light as the pictures will soon be fairly noisy. Surprisingly, the distortion is pretty well controlled on the front camera, something that we don’t get to see very often on front facing cameras.

Battery Life and Spower

Samsung has created various attributes which are specially designed keeping the Indian user in mind and S-Power is one of these. While most Android phones offer a battery saver mode, Samsung takes it to the next level with S Power. S Power could be configured to reserve battery for calls, to extend battery time and even forward calls to a different number in the event your phone’s battery does die.

Additionally, there’s also an Ultra Power saving mode which limits the number of apps that can run, and the services that remain active. We tried out all of the modes and feel that the Ultra manner is best for those who need a device alive to make and receive calls and text. Our notifications for WhatsApp and Skype weren’t coming through when the telephone was in this mode.
With all of the battery saving features turned off, the 3000mAh battery of the Samsung Galaxy J7

Prime lasted us for an entire work day without any issues. This includes HEAVY usage of WhatsApp, Facebook and a substantial number of phone calls. Normally, an iPhone 6s would have died halfway through the day, but the Galaxy J7 Prime managed to get through the entire day with no problems.

You can extend the battery life by another 12 hours or so by turning on some of the S Power modes, but frankly, if you’re able to charge the phone at night while sleeping, there really is no need for prolonged battery life. Nevertheless, in the proceedings you’re planning a trip to locations where electricity is scarce, the power saving modes will actually come in handy.

Along with that, the Samsung Galaxy J7 Prime SM-G610 is designed to give consumers with the precise 4G experience by using its Ultra Info Saving system. This function will save you information when buffering video clips or downloading programs, reducing the apps from sipping a lot of info when you’re using your smart handset.
