Samsung Galaxy A7 Smartphone Review

 

3, 5, 7. Samsung's Galaxy A lineup is tailored more for the normal wallet than the wickedly expensive Galaxy S models. Now a small phablet is available in the series called Galaxy A7. We took a closer look at the classy smartphone.

Very solid casing, Slim and stylish, Decent speaker, Everyday-suitable battery life, Low temperatures, Superb color reproduction, Accurate input devices

Mediocre voice quality, Preloaded adware, Protruding camera could scratch..., ...and causes the smartphone to teeter

Samsung's Galaxy A7 is to be a mainstream smartphone, but it is also to satisfy even somewhat higher demands at the same time. Samsung masters this balancing act quite well: The high-quality casing is pleasant to hold, and its plain, classy looks let...

Samsung Galaxy A7 Review

 

The design (materials used as well) is probably the most discussed and criticized aspect of Samsung phones for quite some time now. Ever since the Galaxy S3, every design has been more of an update/refinement rather than a revolution as we had come to...

Fresh New Design; Solid Build Quality; Great Screen with Really Good Sunlight Legibility; Good Audio Quality; Loud and Clear Speaker; Good Battery Life; Good Quality Front Facing Camera

No Notification Light; Slightly Noisy Main Camera; Non-Removable Battery (May not be an issue for everyone); Slightly priced on the higher side

The Galaxy A7 is something fresh from Samsung. Focus has been given to improve it’s design and build, two areas where they have been criticized for in the past. Overall the handset is something you would expect from a Note 4 Neo version if there was...

Samsung Galaxy A7 review

 

The A7 is Samsung's thinnest smartphone yet

Great look and feel ; Decent AMOLED screen ; Really thin

In-built storage just 16GB ; Set to be expensive

One of the best designed handsets that Samsung has released - not to mention the thinnest. The Samsung Galaxy A7 is a great-looking device but I will have to wait until our full review to see if it has the chipset power to help raise it above its...

Samsung Galaxy A7 review

 

Three lenses for three times the fun

Build quality ; Brilliant display ; Ultra Wide Angle Camera

Micro USB Charging ; Needs a bit more processing power ; Battery life could be better with better software optimization

Worth every buck for the photography freaks out there

Samsung Galaxy A7 smartphone review - premium features at a mid-tier price

 

The mid-range smartphone just got a little more crowded with the release of the Samsung Galaxy A7 – a device that inherited a lot of top-line features from earlier flagship Galaxy phones.

Sleek design, glossy finish, water resistant, expandable memory, good front and rear camera, excellent battery. ; Running older Android 6.0, rear panel is a fingerprint magnet, fingerprint reader could be faster. ; The Samsung Galaxy A7 delivers a lot...
