Samsung Galaxy J7 review: Jeans & jacket

18 September, 2015
The smartphone jungle can be confusing, but the Samsung Galaxy J7 is surprisingly easy to decipher: J for "affordable price" and 7 for "big screen". This is the lite version of the Galaxy A7, offering semi-premium features but confined to the midrange. Another way to look at it is as an E7 Plus.

It's been a very good experience with this handset. I've been using it since last 5 months and till now it is good. From last few weeks, it started to get slow, I've been experiencing slow performance issues with it, like lags, screen blank for seconds, etc., Thanks to following post:­/

That helped me a lot.

Now, it is running good. I love this handset.

I just purchased a J7 and can't seem to find how to zoom in on an object. I am not camera savy, so it may be something simple. I can't figure it out.
Any ideas?

I bought Samsung Galaxy J7 2015 series and am totally disappointed with the ringing volume of the phone. It is very low. One can hear the phone ringing a bit better only if it is kept upside down. Not expected of Samsung as this is very basic.......................

Don't buy the Samsung Galaxy J7 if you want LED notifications, I have been going around and around with Samsung for months due to the LED not working. This manual states the LED indicator is suppose to work on the phone. Page 5­606/20160628020328299/VGN_PPD_SM-J700P_Galaxy-J7­_EN_UM_MM_6.0_FINAL_WAC.pdf However technicians state this is not enabled on these phones. This is false advertisement and very disappointing that I use this option as a way of notifications and can't. This is not a way to conduct business. I have talked to corporate relations and they state there is nothing that can be done, no refunds, no credits, no exchange of phones because it wasn’t purchased directly through them. They are all trained in canned responses. This is absolutely ridiculous. If you are advertising a function that is suppose to work and it doesn’t all the products should be shipped back or an exchanged policy implemented.

It's a great phone. exceptionally longer battery life & camera is very good.

Worst phone I've ever used. It restarts on its own even when I'm making a call. I went to the service centre and they said it wad probably a virus from my old sd card.I changed the sd card and the problem persisted. They eventually replaced the phone on warranty and it seemed three problem was over. However few weeks later, it starred again. Once I have cash, I'll drop it and buy another brand. I'M DONE WITH SAMSUNG PHONES!!!

Re-post for the 2nd time - Bought J7 from metro 3 weeks ago and I thought I got the 2016 version due to 2Gb RAM, Marshmalllow 6.0.1 and NFC feature. But the cpu is not the latest octocore 1.7 but only 1.5Ghz. The model # here says: J700T1 . Can someone explain in further details on this confussion - Thanks
