Samsung Galaxy A7 (2017) Review

The display and battery are the only difference when compared to the Samsung Galaxy A5 (2017). The display of A7 is good with full HD resolution. The Exynos 7880 is a decent mid-level performer. Combined with the 3GB of RAM, we can expect a decent performance. The 3GB RAM is great capacity for multitasking and gaming.

The Cameras are assuring with 16MP sensors at both sides. The 3600mAh battery is perfect for long time backup. The Nougat version of Android was released a long back but still it is not available in this new smartphone.

The price is not reasonable. Just because of it is Samsung, it comes with a huge price tag.
