Samsung Galaxy J7 Prime Features

The J series from Samsung, especially the J7 has received good response from the market since it was first launched in 2015. Samsung then came up with the updated version Galaxy J7 2016 or also called Galaxy J7(6). Samsung Galaxy J7 Prime can be called the elder sibling of the Galaxy J7 2016 as it has just a few but some important changes to the latter.

Design and Display

Ditching the plastic design, Samsung has now gone with an all metal design for it's premium version of the Galaxy J7(6). The build looks solid and the device feels premium to hold as well. Coming to the display we have a similar 5.5 inch AMOLED display but with a bumped up resolution of 1920x1080 pixels which now gives it a pixel density of 401PPI making the display much sharper. The display is now protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 4.

Hardware and Features

Samsung Galaxy J7 Prime has got the same Exynos 7870 Octa Core chipset clocked at 1.6GHz and now comes with 3GB of RAM. Where the processor is quite decent in performance, the 3GB of RAM should show positive results when multitasking. The device now also sports a fingerprint sensor embedded in the home button on the front which is a huge plus.

Camera and Storage

The rear camera remains the same from the Galaxy J7(6) that can still shoot videos up to 1080p and also has an LED Flash to take shots in low light conditions. Whereas on the front we now have 8MP sensor from a 5MP, which should show decent improvement while taking selfies or video calling. To store all the data there is 16GB onboard storage that can be further expanded up to 256GB via a MicroSD card.

Connectivity and Battery

This device is Reliance JIO compatible as it supports VoLTE plus also has the standards like WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS. And powering all this we have a 3300mAh battery sealed inside the device and should be good enough to last you through the day with moderate usage.
