    Great value much better than comparable iphone

    • My Best Buy® MemberMember

    For the record I switched from an iphone, as Apple pretty much forces people to upgrade from older models. I loved my 3GS and it was still good enough; we also had a 4, both started having problems with Apps requiring newer versions of iOS not available for these older models (planned obsolescence). For the features we would have had to buy at least a 5S ($50 more than a J7) with the risk of its not being supported in the short-term. So our choice was going to be an iphone7. The price tag was just too much. So we decided to switch. The J7 is fast, reliable and very user friendly once you get past a few basic things that are different on the iphones. Great battery life. You can actually customize a lot of features in the J7 and i am sure I have not even discovered half of them. Some reviews say the camera sucks..I think the quality is is a little finicky but once you get used to how it works, it is just fine. Love than you can film video and take pics at the same time. Btw every single accessory is so much cheaper for Androids.. I bought a 128Gb memory card and have plenty of space to spare.. I sincerely think there's no significant advantage that a comparable iphone has to this Android phone. The argument of superior iphone interface is just not true anymore. If you don't care for the status, ditch Apple and get an Android. You will save $.

    What a great phone!

    Honestly, this phone is amazing for the price! I am not the guy to spend a ton of money on a phone I purchase a new phone about once a year to 2 years and this phone is way better then I expected! Super fast and not full of bloatware like some other phones I have purchased from some "big box stores" and that was nice for a change. Now as far as the screen goes it plays quialty video when I watch NASCAR or other sports with the XFINITY app. I truly am very happy with this device. I have every app I had with my old phone and a couple more and still have plenty of space left for more! (I'm only half full) Great price point in this device at best buy. Also this phone will pick up both Wi-Fi bands at home 2.4 gigahertz and 5 gigahertz! Amazing call quality. Really, I couldn't be happier... highly recommended! Stop reading this review an go get you one at best buy right now!!!

    I'm used to owning every new flagship cell phone that's on the market whether it's an iphone or Android and became interested in testing a lower end phone to compare. Yes, the S8+ is much better in all factors but this phone does not disappoint at all. Only a hickup on occasion but that could be networking issues. It's a solid phone and now my main phone which saves me a ton when buying a new flagship phone outright! No finger print sensor is a bummer though but it's not a deal breaker. I work in software/hardware development and this phone is great for the price even for a phone expert like me ;) Sold my S8+ and got 3 of these for my family. No complaints yet.

    Terrible for using as a phone.

    • My Best Buy® MemberMember

    I have had this phone I bought from a Best Buy Location for approximately 2 and 1/2 months. I can say without a doubt it is the WORST phone I have ever had. As a smart phone it is ok, but it is slower than the phone I had previously that had less processing power. How does a phone with faster processing power work more slow than one with less processing power? But the biggest flaw is that you cannot use it as an actual phone. Constantly being told that I am breaking up or that they cannot hear me. I can always hear the other side just fine. I would describe this product as an over-priced piece of garbage.

    Upgraded version

    • My Best Buy® MemberMember

    I used to own the 2016 J7 version and I really missed it. It was fast, sleek and I never had a problem with it. So when I had to get a new phone I wanted to go back to the J7. The 2017 version is a sleek phone. I did notice that one of my games wasn't as colorful but that's okay. It has no problems with any of the apps I have installed. Its features are the same except this time around I found the button to turn mobile data off. This is a neat feature. If you are looking for a phone that has a lot of features but not for the high price the other Samsung phones have this is a good pick for you.

    Review of Galaxy J 7

    • Verified PurchaserVerified Purchase
    • My Best Buy® MemberMember

    To be fair i bought this as an in between phone from when my LG died and was in between upgrades... its very easy to use and confirmed my desire to stay a droid user after breaking up with iPhone. I love the size, can fit in my back pants pockets without hanging out(I have a small butt) But not for long term use I felt this phone has terrible volume is way too low but sound quality is okay, picture quality is horrendous. The room is not nearly enough but SD card is cheap and is now more than satisfactory for the space I need

    I bought this for my mom since she was having issues with her old phone. We bought it unlocked so she could switch carriers. Unfortunately Cricket will not allow her to use her hotspot, but she still loves the phone and it has a large enough screen where she can search the web on it (she has eyes problems) since it's samsung, i know it will last her another 5 years with how well she maintains her phones. If you are someone who wants a smartphone but doesnt want to pay the high dollar, this is a good phone to consider.

    Great phone, great price!

    I purchased the J727U to replace a Moto X Pure that failed twice. The J7 is faster, has a better signal, and offers all of the features I want (replaceable battery, optional slot of an SD card), big clear screen, and because it is unlocked, I can buy SIM cards when I travel overseas and use it. Calls don't drop even in my rural location, which is a great change. The price can't be beat. Well, maybe on Black Friday...I'm watching for a price match deal. I would absolutely recommend this phone to any Android user.
