    My mother is aiming to buy the J7 so we were canvassing in stores in the metro, and I was able to get ahold of a J7 unit and was able to benchmark it. The local variant of the J7 has a Super AMOLED HD panel and an octacore Exynos 7580 chipset, similar to the Indian variant. The other variant released elsewhere in the world has an IPS panel and a Snapdragon 615 chipset instead.

    • anon says:

      correction: all J7 models worldwide seem to have the Super AMOLED tech; only the chipset differs from market to market

      ung j5 po ba super amoled dn?kc po nkakalito sbi sa china tft lng tas sa india super amoled. eh d2 po sa pinas?super tft?haha kidding

    • Sana nga sir. Kasi ung ibang websites, ang nakalagay na processor is Snapdragon tpos ang display is hnd IPS kung TFT which is hndi maganda.. hehe.. Ung Exynos naman, un ung naka Super AMOLED. Wala pa po kasi akong nakitang variant nito na Snapdragon tpos Super AMOLED. Balak ko rin kasing bilihin ito dito sa Jeddah. Kaya hoping na sana, international variant ung may SUper AMOLED.

      Sir Anon, may I know kung saan k nakabili ng Exynos version (lte)… Yun din kasi hanap ko at nakaikot na ako sa alabang & laguna area puro snapdragon (3g) version lang available? Kindly reply. Thanks…

    with that price and di pa LTE.. sayang naman…

    Samsung j5 is superior to e5? Ironic considering the price

  4. Mahal pala tlaga jan sa Pinas. Almost 13K ung J7 at almost 10K naman ung J5. yung kawork ko nabili lang ung J5 dito sa Jeddah ng 700 riyals which is equal to 8400 petot. Ung J7 naman is nasa 850-900 riyals and hindi aabot ng 13K.
