Thank you @Zebulon Walton  Smile

This is a precious information !

You're welcome! The only issue I ran into is that battery had a plastic molding glued to the bottom edge (opposite edge from the contacts) that had to be removed for it to fit in the phone.

@Zebulon Walton 

  In the wiki they give a few different part numbers,  This is the one I purchased on ebay,

       It fits perfect without any trimming. 

 "For Samsung Galaxy J7 SM-J700 J700M J700P J700F EB-BJ700 CBE"

Only difference I noticed is the Pine battery is rated 2800 mAh, 

the Samsung is rated at 3000 mAh,  very close.

I also just started playing with the "'external Pine phone battery charger"' I bought last year, 
but I just started using that when my new battery arrived.

That charges the battery much faster even though I am powering it with the same wall charger.
  When the red LED indicator light goes out and you install the battery into the phone it reads
   100% charged.

   ( But then that is only charging the battery and not also powering the phone. )

if you set the maximum current in the /sys which I think is 3A then it will be charging much faster minus the consumption
