One of the highlights of the Galaxy On7 Prime is the Social Camera feature. This feature saves you precious amounts of time it takes to manually upload a picture.


Just add your favorite WhatsApp or Messenger contact, click and send. Of course, it needs your approval, but then, it saves a whole lot of time. What makes it even better is that this feature can't be used when your phone is locked.

Fun Fact: The Social Camera first made its appearance on the Samsung J7 series.

3. Be the Master of Photography

As you already might know, the classic rule of thirds helps to frame your shots better and this perfection in phone photography can be brought by using grid lines.
