Metal-made Samsung Galaxy J7 Prime now available in the US

Metal-made Samsung Galaxy J7 Prime now available in the US
Released not long ago in a few Asian markets, the Samsung Galaxy J7 Prime can now be bought in the US via Amazon. The handset is offered unlocked for $295.98, and can be used on GSM/LTE carriers like AT&T and T-Mobile, but it's not compatible with Verizon and Sprint.

Since it's sold directly by Amazon (see the source link at the end of this article), we assume that the Galaxy J7 Prime comes with US warranty. Still, to be sure of that, you'd better contact Amazon and ask. Right now, the device is available only in black, and we don't know when, or if other color variants will be launched in the US.

The Samsung Galaxy J7 Prime kind of resembles the Galaxy J7 (2016), but it packs more advanced features inside its metal body. The handset is powered by an octa-core Exynos 7870 processor, sports a 5.5-inch 1080p display, and currently runs Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow. Furthermore, it's got a fingerprint scanner, a 13 MP rear camera, 8 MP front-facing camera, 3 GB of RAM, 32 GB of expandable storage space, and a 3300 mAh battery. Dual SIM support is on board, too.

Amazon doesn't have too many Galaxy J7 Prime units in stock, so perhaps you should hurry if you're planning to purchase the phone.

Damn, that's some really good specs. For that price is a must grab.

I've been wondering when Samsung was going to come to the US market with a proper OnePlus 3 competitor.

This phone must have better Screen on Time than the S7 Edge (even the Exynos verison)?

It runs last years exynos and this years exynos is a beast when it comes to power efficiency, so I doubt it

Most of people rarely transfer files to PC nowadays anyway. The port is mostly used for accessories and charging.

In fact, I don't want my phone anywhere close the PC.

Didn't know Samsung knew how to make such nice looking device.

As a user of j7 prime for 2 months..... I feel that the phone is a worth buy in this budget... The only glitch is the TFT screen, lack of a front LED flash and a low internal memory.... Or else things as good as promised.... The Fingerprint sensor is awesome....
