Review: Samsung Galaxy A7
Ladies and gentlemen, the Samsung Galaxy A7 has landed. It’s joining the Galaxy A3 and the Galaxy A5, the metal-bodied mid-range handsets from Samsung that are raising more than a few sets of eyebrows.
What are you looking at with the Samsung Galaxy A7? We can start with the 5.5-inch HD screen – the full 1080p too – which uses Samsung’s brilliantly clear Super AMOLED panels.
Couple that with the octa-core processor, a combination quad 1.8GHz and quad 1.3GHz CPU, as well as 2GB of RAM and 16GB of storage and you’ve got the beginnings of a very good phone indeed. Samsung have given the Samsung Galaxy A7 access to a microSD slot, which will support cards up to 64GB, so you’re not running short on storage any time soon.
There are the customary two cameras, a 13MP rear cam that comes with autofocus and flash, as well as a nice 5MP front cam for taking photos of yourself. Or video chatting via Skype.
You can expect WiFi support, up to 802.11 a/b/g/n, as well as Bluetooth – it’d be more remarkable if they left this one off, actually – and then there’s also LTE to look forward to. Yes, the Samsung Galaxy A7 is going to be a data-hungry internet speedster. Just the way we like them.
The Samsung Galaxy A7 is the best phone we’ve seen in the A-series so far. It’s almost hard to believe that this is what is considered mid-range for Samsung these days but you won’t find us complaining at all.
