Samsung Galaxy A7 (2016) Review: Price, Specs, Pros and Cons

Review of Samsung Galaxy A7 (2016) at a Glance:-

Samsung has its "A" series to launch middle-upper range Smartphone with semi flagship features. This time Samsung launched a beautifully designed handset Samsung Galaxy A7  with key features like Exynos 7580 octa core processor (India), 5.5 inches display, 13 & 5 MP camera, 16 GB ROM with 128 GB External SD card support, 3 GB RAM, 3300 mAh battery. Here we will have Short review, Pros and Cons of Samsung Galaxy A7 (2016).

The way phone is crafted and designed is really awesome with glass panels on the front and back that are held together with a shiny, silver metallic frame that rounds out along the top and bottom. Manufacturer tries to keep minimum area for the bezels which makes its actual display wider. Body is sensitive to fingerprints while white colored phone doesn’t showing that much finger marks. On the right edge power button and volume rocker are on left the single speaker unit is found at the bottom.

Samsung is creating a great display deal with AMOLED technology; with 5.5 inches display, 1080p full HD resolutions and 401ppi density. The graphics, colour reproduction and brightness balance is quite suitable for the eyes and relatively much vibrant than IPS display. The sunlight visibility is not a problem; text and graphics in display are clear enough.
Today’s youth is obsessed with selfie photos; group photos etc. so having a good camera in Smartphone is necessary to save the memory in phones. So company Included 13 MP camera that has f/1.9 aperture and there is OIS for stabilization. Camera capture quite crisp photos but when we expend the image to full length the details about the picture lost; as compare to Galaxy S6 the camera is not equally vibrant but it is capable of snapping satisfactory pictures. 5 MP front camera is nearly same as Galaxy S6 that takes pretty decent pictures.
Indian version of A7 2016 has Exynos 7580 Octa processor clocked on 1.6 GHz processor backed with Mali-T720MP2 GPU; the most of tasks in phone are smooth but heavy apps are slightly sluggish. Very rare of the time phone slows while switching from one app to another. On the graphics we are definitely with Snapdragon’s Adreno 405 GPU instead of Mali-T720MP2 which has better graphical frame delivery. It’s good to know that phone has 3 GB RAM which helps in using multiple apps at a time.
The phone is capable of giving 17 hours talk time in 3G networks from its 3300 mAh battery. Battery is on the positive side of the handset as it can easily stand up for more than one full day.

Why to buy and Final words about Samsung Galaxy A7 (2016)

It’s for sure device looks little more expensive but the fact is also true that phone is classy; the way metallic frame and gorilla glass is covering it feels premium. Processor is mediocre and coupled with 3 GB RAM which enhances its performance. Camera is pretty good, in phone gallery pictures looks great but when zoomed; detail lost a bit. Battery doing great job & able to deliver good backup as compare to its counterpart phone.
