Samsung Galaxy J7 is a mid range 4g Enabled Lollipop based smartphone so modifying the performances of this phone is not such a bad idea that too when it comes to customization. Yes, you can improve the general performances, in order to bump speeds, upgrade battery life and customize the Android system as long as you are ready to learn how to perform some dedicated usage.
