Samsung kicks off 2017 with new series of Samsung Galaxy A. Previous year, Samsung did well with the Samsung Galaxy 2016 A-series. The series consists of Samsung Galaxy A3, Galaxy A5 and Galaxy A7. Today we are back to provide complete review of Samsung Galaxy A7 2017 model. The phone is blessed with high performance and deadly looks. The screen is quite large and fully AMOLED. Other features are also thought provoking. The new series is also waterproof as the old series. The price of the phone is around INR 30,000. Let’s have a look at its specs:
Built and Design:
In terms of its body, the new Samsung Galaxy A7 comes under premier design phones unlike the previous version. Its dimensions are 156.8×77.6×7.9 mm. The A7 2017 is also light in weight comparatively to A7 2016. The Samsung Galaxy A7 flaunts a curvy design, and is available in many colour variants. The body is waterproof and dust resistance which enables you to use it. Adding further, the fingerprint sensor is embedded in the home button itself. The body is very much similar to the S7 series. We have got metal frame that rounds out along top and bottom and flattens out along all sides as seen in the S7 series. It doesn’t have a heart monitor but it includes a water-resistant fingerprint censor.
Display and Sound:
The Samsung Galaxy A7 comes with a 5’’7 AMOLED screen with Full HD display an 1080×1920 pixels resolution. The touch screen is very sensitive and is protected by Gorilla Glass in the corners. Multitouch, multiWindow and always on are some of its prominent features. The sound quality is superb as usual and is provided with a 3.5 mm jack.Watching movies, browsing and playing games are just too comfortable on this big resolution device.
The camera lens is little less bulging then the previous version, which was a complaint last year. The new Samsung Galaxy A7 2017 comes with a 16MP rear camera with a f/1.9 aperture and awesome image along with optical optimization. The camera allows you to record videos in 4K quality, adding further it has Youtube live streaming feature as well as it has HDR auto.
The device comes with top TouchWiz, Android Marshmallow 6.0 which is quite disappointing as many devices have been launched with the Android 7 Nougat. The icons are bit circular and the UI is similar to Samsung Galaxy Note 7. The internal storage is only 32 GB but the new A7 2017 supports expandable memory of 256 GB. The fingerprint sensor is embedded on the home button, just like the Samsung Galaxy S7 and other related devices. The device is powered by powerful 64bit Exynos 7880 octa-core processor and RAM is 3 GB. The device works well with no lags. Samsung Pay service is also included to safe online transactions.
The device supports all form of connectivities including NFC and LTE networks. Battery power of Samsung Galaxy A7 is around 3600mAh and supports fast charging.
The phone has been released in the beginning of the month. Let’s see how customers take on this.
