Samsung has been leading the smartphone market for some time now. They popularized touchscreen, Android-based smartphones all over the world. Catering to all levels of the market from budget buyers to cash spending enthusiast, there is no domain Samsung hasn’t touched.
But up till only the top end models, such as the Galaxy S and the Galaxy Tab S series, have actually been great. Samsung’s mid card has always been weak. Their previous attempts failed to impress, either in terms of features or build quality.
But all that has changed: Enter the Samsung Galaxy A7. The A7 feels like a flagship phone at far less the cost. It has a 1.9 GHz Octa-Core Exynos 7880 processor mated to 3 GB of RAM and offers 32 GB storage (extendable to 256 GB via microSD card). The 16 Megapixel front and back camera offer pretty decent photos and full1080p videos but struggle in low light conditions.
It has a barrage of sensors: accelerometer, gyro, proximity, compass, barometer and front-mounted fingerprint sensor. It has an enormous 3,600 mAh nonremovable battery and supports fast charging capabilities.
The device boasts Android 6.01 Marshmallow. Although it isn’t a OnePlus 3T, that has 4K video capture, Android 7 Nougat and a whopping 401 pixels per inch, it still has the potential to stand out amongst the crowd.
Samsung Pay Software
Priced at around $450, the Galaxy A7 makes for a great mid-range smartphone. It comes with Game tools and Samsung Pay software built into it and can handle games such as Asphalt 8 with ease.
The only problem is that the front facing fingerprint sensor can often be activated by mistake. It may have tough competition but it is an easy pick for most lovers of Samsung’s higher end phones.
