Although not the most expensive smartphone in the A series, Samsung Galaxy A7 is somewhat very similar to the A9 and even better in some departments. For example, it has Android 5.1.1 (Lollipop), upgradable to 7.0 (Nougat), and A9 isn’t upgradable to Android 7.0. Samsung Galaxy A7 sports a solid 3 GB of RAM and 16 GB of internal storage, which is ok, but not great. An Octa-core 1.6 GHz Cortex-A53 CPU found here is common for budget devices and Mali-T720MP2 isn’t that great GPU, although this phone handles games very well.

We’re glad that Samsung included a Fingerprint scanner on this device, which they didn’t incorporate in some devices in J series. Samsung doesn’t seem to steer away from its working formula- a 13 MP main camera, quality enough to be one of the best in the class. Galaxy A7 has a 3300 mAh Li-Ion battery, which is solid and can last up to 78 h when playing music.

    Samsung Galaxy A7 Review

    Galaxy A series is one of my favorite smartphone series which are more budget-oriented, similar to J but better. Galaxy A7 has a great screen and it looks fantastic. I've been using it for almost half a year and i haven't had any problems… simply a brilliant phone!
