Galaxy J7 Prime vs Redmi Note 3: Design
When it comes to design and build, Samsung is the prime. Redmi Note 3 may have a sleek look and it feels amazing in hand but somehow, it lacks of the grace and elegance that Samsung's flagships bring.
Both all-metal devices sport 5.5-inch screen but J7 Prime packs Corning Gorilla Glass and a thinner body. Fingerprint readers on both handsets are fast and responsive.
Don't expect an AMOLED screen Galaxy J7 Prime as it offers a PLS TFT display with 401 ppi pixel density, as listed in GSM Arena. This makes Redmi Note 3 slightly better when it comes to the display quality with its IPS LCD and 403 ppi pixel density.

As far as the processor is concerned, Redmi Note 3 performs multitasking and gaming faster than Galaxy J7 Prime. The US version of Galaxy J7 Prime uses Exynos 7870 chip whereas Redmi Note 3 is powered by a Snapdragon 650.
J7 Prime packs 3,300 mAh battery whilst Redmi Note 3 offers larger capacity, 4,040 mAh.
