  1. When it comes to MetroPCS, I just might be all over it! But the Sprint Network, ewwww ... no thanks.

    1. Sprint Network works a lot better than T-Mobile's in my area. I'm averaging 38 down and 12 up with Boost.

    2. Metro's network is only a little better than Sprint, overall.

    3. Wait to see if T-Mobile gets it. If they do, eventually Metro will too.

      Or sometimes check the device support page of that carrier's website. Sometimes they post that info normally a week head of the headset launch. Sometimes they don't.

    4. Metro's network covers 305M people in USA now, vs. 280M for Sprint. 9% more.

      Delete
    5. The statistic about covering "people" is completely meaningless. It is based on home addresses, and it is useless for Mobile coverage, as it falls apart once you take the phone out of your house.

      If you look at where people go, MetroPCS coverage is half that of AT&T and Verizon. Significantly inferior. And just a little bit better than that of Sprint.

      To compare Metro PCS to Sprint, look at what matters: coverage. You don't look at home addresses.

      We are talking mobile here, not land lines.

    6. You keep spreading false information about 'pops,' the name of the telecommunications industry measurement that all carriers use to describe the number of people within their geographic coverage. The number of people who can connect to a mobile network within a geographical area is a very meaningful measurement of coverage, for those people and for the companies.
      You apparently think that areas populated only by rocks and trees in areas where virtually no people go is just as important. Most people are too smart for that nonsense, and won't waste money buying coverage they don't need.

  2. Already have mine coming from HSN. They had a great sale on it this past weekend. I've been a boost customer for years. Never once had a problem. I guess it really makes a difference where you live. That's why there are different carriers so people have choice. What's good for some is bad for others,and vice versa.

    1. Boost Mobile Model #: SMJ700P (Galaxy J7)

      Delete
    2. It came today from HSN. It's amazing. Has some features from the s7. I feel like I have a flagship but without paying $450 more!

      Delete
    3. I can't wait, I ordered mine from HSN too. It's not supposed to be here until Tuesday, April 19th!! Lucky, you got yours quick! Glad you like it, I hope I will too!! Can't wait!!!! 😊

    4. Trina..it's awesome! But, unless I missed it, mine didn't ship with the $35 free month. I wasn't too upset, though..phone was still cheaper!

      Delete
    5. Dennis..the phone definitely seems to have an oleophobic coating, fingerprints rub right off. But, I can't find anything about gorilla glass. Does it have any sort of strengthened glass, as there are more out there besides Gorilla.

      Delete
    6. I haven't found anywhere that Boost or Samsung list the screen material so it's probably some sort of generic hardened glass.

      Delete
    7. That's good enough for me. :) Thank you.

  3. Nexus 5X is $199 on Fi, but Boost wants more for half the phone. No wonder people are leaving.

  4. The Korean press said Galaxy J7 will be equipped with same as Boost Mobile except 3GB Ram, FHD AMOLED, and Snapdragon 600s or Exynos 7870 Processor. Additionally, Korean Galaxy can use on any GSM carriers AT&T and T-Mobile. KT phones works with AT&T greatly.

  5. Very nice specs for a mid range handset. Can anybody confirm if this version will come with an SD card slot? Will the US GSM version be similar to this version or Korean Galaxy?

    1. GSMArena Samsung Galaxy J7 (2016) - Full phone specifications lists the non-Korean GSM version's specs as similar to those of the Boost model.

      Delete
    2. Yes it comes with SD Card slot.

      Delete
    3. FCC approval for a US GSM version: A3LSMJ700F

    1. I tried asking Metro and they had no idea.

  7. So it's an updated s4, but that that's a bad thing.

    ReplyDelete
  8. Is this the (2016) J7 or the (2015)?
    The specs in the article display the (2015) specs.

    Thanks

    1. Neither, like most non-flagship carrier branded phones it's a custom build to the carrier's specs. Based on what we know it's similar to the 2015 international modem but with 2 GB RAM instead of 1.5 GB and Marshmallow instead of Lollipop

      Delete
  9. Looks like a better upgrade to the Prevail LTE which I own and Galaxy J3.

    ReplyDelete
  10. I own the j3 now, but since it's unclear if it is getting Marshmallow, I'm getting the j7. Specs look great. I do love my j3, though. Phone is great.

  11. Just get an iPhone and you will have no worries at all

    ReplyDelete
  12. Boost is also getting the Kyocera Hydro Reach and LG G Stylo 2. I believe they Stylo 2 will be $179.99 and the Hydro Reach will be $99.99.

  13. Does this phone come with the NFC feature?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. The Boost version of the J7 doesn't have NFC.

      Delete
    2. Dennis, I was confused on that, because under the back cover I see nothing for NFC, but in settings there are toggles for NFC..I have Boost.

      Delete
    3. I sent you an email with screenshots..

      Delete
    4. Thanks for the screenshots which confirm that the Boost J7 does support NFC. There's no mention of NFC in Boost's J7 tutorials which is why I believed that it was not supported.

      Delete
  14. You're welcome! But, like I said, there doesn't appear to be an NFC antenna or whatever it's called under the back cover. Maybe they made the antenna different this time around.

    1. Antennas can be hidden. My Note 4 has NFC but no visible antenna. Try an NFC app like Android Pay or Android Beam.

      Delete
    2. I'm confused I guess... isn't an antenna under the back cover by definition hidden?

      Delete
    3. Not if the back cover is removable as it is on the Note 4 and J7.

      Delete
    4. Who gives a rats ass about NFC?

      Delete
  15. True. I didn't download it, but I looked up android pay in play store, and there wasn't an error saying my phone isn't compatible, so I'm guessing it'll work. Enjoy your weekend!

    ReplyDelete
  16. I asked Boost, they said it did have the NFC feature. How about the camera. Is it better than earlyer J7's? I understand it wasn't that good on earlier models.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Can I switch it to straight talk?

    ReplyDelete
  18. Can I switch it over to TracFone wireless?

    1. No, Boost Mobile phones can only be used on Boost Mobile.
