      It's ok. It doesn't have near the customization that my Galaxy S5 had. it is a Samsung so it does have Swype technology. I couldn't text without that. It's awkward to get to things I want. I can't seem to put a direct link on the screens but have to go through another link first. I can't move or get rid of the icons it comes with on the screen they are assigned to. Not fond of the messaging but think that is a Verizon thing. This is my first time with Verizon. Not impressed so far. The phone was mostly useless for the first two days as everytime I picked it up, it needed to do another update! Sometimes from Samsung and sometimes from Verizon and at least once from Google. That seems excessive for a new phone. Biggest pet peeve so far is that there are NO visual indicators! I'm used to a light if I have missed a call or gotten a message. There is no way of knowing on this one until you wake it up and look at the screen. If I used as much data with this one as I'm used to on my old phone/regular plan, it would end up costing me more per month. But by turning off the data and only using WiFi this will be about half as much per month. Text and calls are unlimited so I guess they make their money by making you buy a prepaid card of at least $30 with so little data it is a joke and then making that card good for only 30 days - whether you use it or not. So guess you could say that you get a decent smartphone for a really cheap price and then figure it is $30 a month for unlimited voice and text. But it has NO international calls. (my old provider gave me both Canada and Mexico at no extra cost) Would I recommend, it depends on what someone needs. I rarely use my phone for anything but texting and Google Maps so it will be ok for that. I don't play games, listen to music or watch movies on it. I would go with the Galaxy and not a pre-paid if I needed all of that or if I needed Canada/Mexico calling ability.

      I received a Verizon pre-paid Moto G4 Play as a Christmas gift in 2016. It was without a doubt one of the worst phones I've ever owned. It was somewhat of a relief when I dropped it on Sunday and the screen cracked. That meant I could finally justify replacing it with a more reliable product. I originally wanted an unlocked phone to avoid the bloatware. I also like to root my devices so I can install Titanium Backup for my games. However, the only CDMA compatible, unlocked, devices Best Buy offered in stores were Motorolas for $250 - $350. Nope! Next up from that were two LG devices that had horrible reviews and the Samsung Galaxy S/Apple lines. I refuse to pay close to a grand for something that will be obsolete in a few months. So the Samsung Galaxy J7 seemed like my best bet. So far, I haven't been disappointed. Pros: - The display - Battery Life - Minimal bloatware - Internal memory - Charging - Built in weather widget and customizable themes - Camera - Call quality - Audio quality Cons: - Best Buy does not carry cases in-store - No NFC - Bootloader is locked and as far as I'm aware no one has found a solution for rooting - Inability to disable certain system apps

      Pretty nice phone, just larger than I'd hoped.

      When my other phone became ancient I had no choice but to look around for another. I hated how much larger the Samsung Galaxy J7 was compared to my S3 and was told even as old as my old phone was the J7 wouldn't compete with it's processing power. I nearly walked away. Who wants to spend more money on a so -called newer phone (talking 3 years I had my old one) when you're told it's not even as good as your old one?? Still, I needed a new phone so decided to buy the J7. Other than the fact you can't but pretty cases for it, I must say I am pleasantly surprised by it. I've noticed no difference in it from my S3. Was also told the camera isn't as good on the J7...and you know, cell phone photos don't print clearly anyways despite the model so that's not an issue either. All in all it's not a bad phone. Only thing that drives me bonkers and perhaps I'm missing a setting somewhere, but when a text viewing pane is open it never alerts you of incoming messages. Ugh. Only alerts you if you power off, turn off, get out of text altogether, or change screens. That's annoying. So if you are a stickler of wanting to know when a text has come through while you are in conversation with someone and walked away or got busy waiting for them to reply then the J7 isn't for you. Hope this review helps.

      I gave four instead of five stars because the recent apps and back button are on the phone instead of the screen. I constantly hit them, especially when I’m playing games. I’m an Apple user for my iPads and iPods so I’m still adapting to getting use to using Samsung’s system but I’m enjoying my new cellphone. I did have a problem when I turned on my phone. It said device error, phone still locked, it also said I needed to return the phone to the store I purchased it from to activate it. So I called customer service to have them activate it over the phone. I gave the representative the activation number on the bottom of the box, after she activated the phone she told me to turn the phone on and off. This didn’t work so we tried again a few times then she put me on hold to find a solution. When she came back she told me I had to go to the store or they could send me a new one, I opted to go to the store. I decided to do a factory reset because I had set a lock code and signed into my google account. When it came back on low and behold it was unlocked. So if anyone gets this error, try doing a factory reset so you don’t have to make an unnecessary trip.

      Samsung J7 Is All I Need

      This is a great Samsung phone for the beginner/intermediate cell phone user. I love the camera and watch TV and movies on it all the time. There is a Word-compatible document creator installed called Hanscom Office, which works well. I recommend a 32 Gig micro-SD card to expand storage. It has 16 Gig already, but some game programs are memory-heavy and are better put in external storage. Any system files cannot be moved from the internal storage, big programs like Facebook, Messenger, and casino games are better stored on a micro-SD card. I found that I am having problems with my J7 recognizing my headphones. An Internet search provided solutions. I never had this problem on my other J7, but it is the result of an upgrade, according to what I read. I use Chrome for my browser and have never had a single problem. Don't hesitate to buy this phone. For a minimum investment compared to the Samsung S7, S8, or S9, you can have nearly as much as they have, without underutilizing your phone's capabilities!

      I really like the size of the phone. The settings are not so easy to navigate through. They are Not user friendly. One of the biggest pains is when you do a screenshot. It constantly takes you to Google assistant which I have No desire for. Then you have to stop and get rid of that and go back to what you are doing. I tried to turn that off but it shuts down Google. The microphone only works on and off. I took it to the store within the 30 days but they could not figure out why. They Said I needed to find a Samsung dealer... I was hoping more Apps could be saved to my sd card to free up space on the phone but it is more limited than my Lg was. I do not have many apps on my phone. No Fb or twitter so my battery holds up well.

      The Galaxy J7 is a great phone for the money, likely the best even at this price level. The phone is easy to use and navigate, however my girlfriend seems to have general technical issues and complains about it even though being her own fault. I am seriously considering "upgrading" to this phone from my Samsung Galaxy S7 as there is simply no way I can justify spending $1,000 on a cell phone today. Between carriers charging $30/mo and requiring $25/mo data plans, "renting" a phone (or any product) is one of the worst financial decisions one can make. I need to make phone calls and hit a few apps, this Galaxy J7 (or the Pro version) accomplishes all of that at a reasonable price.

      I've had this phone for 2 weeks and l like it. The only downfalls I've noticed would be that there is no autobrightness setting and lack of internal storage. Both of these downfalls are minor. You can buy external storage via a micro SD card (Samsung EVO cards are great). As far as autobrightness there are apps for that. However, be careful a lot of those apps want access to your pictures or even the ability to take photos and videos from your phone, but that's another review altogether. All in all I highly recommend this phone for the price.
