Samsung’s Galaxy J7 Prime was once the prime leader in the budget segment and the device sold in millions making it one of the most popular Samsung device among the developer community. The Galaxy J7 Prime was launched with Marshmallow 6.0.1, and later this year the handset was updated to Android Nougat which if we compare by today’s standards is somewhat old and with Android P 9.0 around the corner, it definitely won’t please everyone. As being a budget smartphone and being from Samsung’s camp, it is only promised to get just one Software Update and jumping from Android 6.0 to 7.0 ends the software updates journey for the Galaxy J7 Prime.
User’s waiting for Android Oreo 8.x.x are informed that Nougat is the last update for this device. However, as we said earlier this one has good community support there are plenty of Android Oreo-based Custom ROMs developed for this device. All you need to have is an Unlocked bootloader, and your device should be rooted as well. And in this post, we will take a look at top 5 best Custom ROMs for the J7 prime. The Galaxy J7 prime is powered by Samsung’s in-house made Exynos 7870 SoC and comes coupled with 3GB RAM. The device sports a single 13-megapixel shooter and an 8-megapixel selfie snapper, a decent 3300mAh cell keeps it alive.
