Design and Display

Staring at the Samsung Galaxy J7 Prime 2 you will see a close semblance to the previous smartphone besides having more reduced bezels by the way. The smartphone is covered by aluminium at the rear with plastic at the edges. Covering the screen is an unspecified Corning Gorilla Glass with a fingerprint sensor in between two navigation touch buttons at the bottom of the screen.

On to the display, the South Korean OEM keeps things simple with only an FHD IPS panel to come up with on the Samsung Galaxy J7 Prime 2. It has an average size of 5.5-inch as seen in most smartphones with a resolution of 1920 X 1080 pixels. This leaves the pixel density at 401 pixels and with a decent view angle too.

Battery and Camera

Regarding the battery, you have a little above average which according to Samsung delivers 21 hours talk time. This means daily life span totally depends on usage, a fairly intensive usage will leave the battery unable to work the daily mile. Sadly, it also lacks quick charge leaving you to charge for about 2 hours before full charge.

A slight improvement has been made to the camera compared to its predecessor. The new Samsung Galaxy J7 Prime 2 now offers the same camera set up on both sides. Meaning, you have a 13MP rear camera and a 13MP front camera both having an f/1.9 aperture.

Under the hood, the smartphone is run by Samsung’s own chipset which is somewhat of low grade. The smartphone features an Octa-core Exynos 7870 processor with a frequency of 1.6GHz alongside a Mali-T830 GPU in charge of graphics munching.

In addition, there is a 3GB internal memory space for multitasking and smooth operations on the smartphone. This is accompanied by a 32GB built-in storage, which is not much but can be expanded to a staggering 256GB using a memory card in stead of the second sim. It also runs Android 7.1 Nougat with Samsung Experience UI on top.

Samsung Galaxy J7 Prime 2 Price and Availability

The smartphone is currently on sale in India where it was launched for Rs 13, 900 which is an equivalent of 77, 500 Naira.
