I've had the J7 for seven months and it's given me nothing but trouble. They cut too many corners and now it's failing. Thought that the bigger screen would make for watching videos better, yes and no. 720 is good but not great. The size is ok if you're wearing cargo pants or a jacket but a bit bulky for a man's pocket. No gorilla glass, no noise cancelling mic, no pic stabilization, no gyro so VR is limited and if you watch a video on it and it happens to be flat on a table, the mic being on the back is muffled. I don't mind living without some of these features but I do mind living without being able to depend upon it to make a telephone call. I'm not talking dropped calls or no service, I'm talking of the unit making a call, able to connect for about 45 to 75 seconds and then it's as if I'm on mute as I can't be heard. Took it to the store and of course, just worked fine. The phone had acted up the night before during an emergency telephone call which left me unable to effectively contact anyone for 45 minutes. Then the phone mysteriously started working just fine. The other major issue was not getting voice mail notification. I was told it was either a bad sim card or phone and take it into the store to use a known working phone. The store manager changed the settings and did what two to three levels of tech support couldn't do in seven days: Make it work. She said it was because it was set for wi fi over 4g. I find that hard to believe it would effect the telephone icons but oh well. I feel like I could become one of their tech support agents as I know all the answers before I call: 1. That's normal. 2. This is the first time I've ever heard of that. Started randomly playing MP3 files stored on the SD card. Not using it or anything, just sitting on a table and then have it start playing. No apps showing open, no way to stop it. "First I've heard of that. " SD card showing files corrupted when read from a computer but not when reading from the phone. "That's normal." Did I get a lemon or are they all going to start to fail around six months in?
