Samsung Galaxy J7 Prime 2 smartphone comes with average features & performance for its price. It excels in all the departments but Samsung uses low-quality TFT display to cut price, we suggest to check other mobiles like Redmi Note 5 Pro, Asus Max Pro M1 also if you are looking for a good mobile around 15k.
