    Hi Narender, I am interested in Samsung J7 Prime for making HD video’s for my work, please guide that whether Samsung J7 Prime (3 GB RAM) would be a good choice for it or should I have to take look for 4GB RAM smartphones. As far as the budget is concerned the price of Samsung J7 Prime is slightly high for me, but for rest of features I can go for it. Please suggest and help.

    Thanks in Advance.
