The J series is already home to some solid midrange smartphones and the Galaxy J7 is released to spice things up a bit. Samsung launched the J7 in 2016 to extend its already-solid Galaxy lineup. One of the most selling key features among the J series is their super cool AMOLED display and the Galaxy J7 is no different. It boasts a massive 5.5-inch Super AMOLED display for a better viewing experience and is elegantly designed for a more premium feel. The unibody design definitely makes it look like a premium segment smartphone. It’s looking to push the boundaries with its competitive features like better camera, better battery, and better everything.

The Galaxy J7 launch was a wise strategy considering Samsung has arguably the widest network amongst smartphone makers around the world and with devices like J7, it’s showing no signs of slowing down anytime soon. Coming to performance, the J7 is powered by Samsung Exynos 1.5GHz octa-core processor for a blazing fast performance paired with 1.5GB of RAM. It packs a 13-megapixel rear camera which is capable of shooting 1080p HD videos at 30fps, plus a 5-megapixel front shooter for clicking cool selfies.

Samsung Galaxy J7 Prime: Key Features

The J7 Prime is a significant upgrade to the J series which definitely takes it to the next level, thanks to its high-tier IPS LCD display technology with 1080p resolution. Like its predecessor, it also has a 5.5-inch display but with a screen resolution of 1080 x 1920 and pixel density of 401 ppi. It comes built-in with an advanced 64-bit class SoC (system on a chip) and is powered by 1.6GHz octa-core Exynos chip backed with 3GB of RAM. The only thing that remains with the upgrade is the Exynos chip. The processing power hasn’t changed much, yet it’s able to manage twice as many pixels.

Coming to camera, it also features a 13-megapixel primary camera but upgraded the front-facing camera to 8-megapixel from the J7’s 5-megapixel. Camera is definitely better in the J7 Prime, plus it has a better battery life owing to the 3300 mAh non-removable battery which is sure to last a day of mixed usage. There is no quick charging though. Unlike the J7, the Prime comes with 32GB of internal storage which of course can be expanded to 256GB for more storage. Running under the hood is the Android v6.01 which was then the most up-to-date Android version (upgradable to Android v7.0 Nougat).
