How to Root Samsung Galaxy J7 and Install TWRP

We all witnessed Samsung’s tight grip on the high-tech smartphone industry, with latest devices such as the Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 Edge which were released last year by Samsung,  no doubt they all have really outdone themselves. But on the other hand the high end smartphone buyers only able to make up a little amount of the total market. Where Samsung seems desperate to get a slight grip in the market of mid range devices. We see people usually complaining that the mid range handsets of Samsung are either lacking in terms of software or in hardware upgrades.

Same as Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Egde, in the starting of June Samsung launched the J7 and J5. There are slight changes in the internals of these two identical siblings. It’s not a new trend to launch similar products with slight variations that gives the extra choice to public to make depending on how much one is eager to spend.

Both devices are powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon. The Galaxy J7 is powered by the 610 SoC and the Galaxy J5 houses the 415 SoC. The J7 features Amoled Display of 5.5” 720p, a 13 MP rear camera and memory that can be expendable. While most of the smartphone devices especially high end device have neglected this nice feature, it’s good to see that Galaxy J7 is still equipped with a slot of microSD for the further expansion.

Not only in Galaxy J7 but in every Android smartphone case, in order to unleash the real power of its functionality we would require one of two things.

A root access or custom recovery. And it’s good news for you that the makers of TWRP released the flashable zip for Samsung Galaxy J7.
