    Great first smart phone choice

    I was forced to get a smart phone as my slider phone was biting the dust. I struggled using other people's smart phones so didn't think I would find a smart phone that would be easy for me to use. The Best Buy rep who helped me was awesome. She listened to my needs and my concerns and helped me pick out this phone. She transferred my contacts from my old phone and showed me the basics on how to use my new phone. I left the store feeling comfortable that I at least knew how to answer my phone and make calls and text messages. Needless to say, I surprisingly love my new smart phone. There is so much more I need to learn but I'm not in a rush and have time to figure out all the bells and whistles it provides. It is a great 1st smart phone.

    EXCELLENT Battery duration in a phone

    • Verified PurchaserVerified Purchase
    • My Best Buy® MemberMember

    Phone was a cheaper replacement for a Galaxy S5 that got locked in an update loop that couldn't be reset. And by the time I traveled to a tech to reflash, it wasn't worth it. Got the J7 for around $200, as opposed to a Galaxy S8 for hundreds more. Like the title says, the battery duration is amazing. My S5 I had to recharge by mid day, now when I go to bed this J7 is still at 70%. And I still use all the apps the same as I had on my S5. The only minor thing is sometimes it's not a speedy as it could be. Some lags with some Apps. But for the price....Excellent

    Trek Into Another Galaxy

    • Verified PurchaserVerified Purchase
    • My Best Buy® MemberMember

    Updating my old HTC was indeed like a trip through space... one that I had never made before... My old Phone served me very well for may years but was supported by hardly anything any longer, requiring an update... My Samsung Galaxy J7V was a seamless transition compared to my earlier update from an LG to my HTC... and the difference was like night to day... So far I love it; in fact a few days after I updated the Mrs.' flip to another J7V, and she's transitioned in smoothly with a little help from me and her being used to her Mini iPad... Today all is good in household technology-wise.

    Good budget phone

    • Verified PurchaserVerified Purchase
    • My Best Buy® Elite MemberElite Member

    Great phone for being on a tight budget. It does the important stuff will. Bluetooth streaming, fast 4G, WiFi, fast octo-core processor, 2 GB of RAM for running apps. Only 16 GB of storage so the micro SD card slot is a bonus. They trimmed the fat with such features at NFC, wireless charging and 5G capability missing. If you can forgo all of these features, this handset is for you. I have no regrets and the price is right. Better than Verizon's other budget phones right now.

    Exceeds expectations of No Frills phone

    • Verified PurchaserVerified Purchase
    • My Best Buy® Elite Plus MemberElite Plus Member

    This phone is utilized as an emergency phone for family and friends who find themselves in need ofa reliable phone. It's a smart phone with all the access to Google's Play Store required to meet or exceed every needed application. Internal memory is somewhat low but phone functions well doesn't crash and appears to be durable. Only downside is the limited accessories. Perfect for the break everything teenager.

    Sound Quality is lacking on the J7


    The volume on calls is very low, thus the extra volume button. This feature does not raise the call volume enough while using the speaker phone. The other issue with the phone is the Bluetooth connection. I am unable to understand callers using Bluetooth with the new phone. Every word is garbled by static. I had perfect connections with my old Galaxy S4 so I know it is not my car's Bluetooth. This phone is not good for those hoping to use it while driving.

    Great battery life

    • Verified PurchaserVerified Purchase
    • My Best Buy® MemberMember

    We previously had Galaxy S5 phones. This is a little better phone and camera than the S5. The battery is fantastic. On the S5 when new, it would last all day, and later needed recharged in the evening. With the J7, the battery is good for two days of similar usage. It doesn't have all the new features of the S9, it is fantastic for games, some research, news, communication, and pictures.

    Sturdy, good functioning android smartphone

    • Verified PurchaserVerified Purchase
    • My Best Buy® MemberMember

    This phone has all of the functions that I used when I had a galaxy note 5, and It costs a lot less than the new note 8. The charge seems to hold a lot longer than on my galaxy note 5, but you cannot use a fast charger. It has a slot for SD card to increase storage. The speed seems a bit slower when I open text messages, etc. I don't stream videos, so that is not too big of a deal for me. Overall I am satisfied.
