Samsung Galaxy A7 is all official now and it is indeed one certain good choice for Samsung fans — however rare that could be. Anyway, at 6.3mm of thickness, and metallic design, the Galaxy A7 specs make good sense. Although price of the Galaxy A7 isn’t available right now, it’s expected at around $500-525, pitting it against Samsung’s own Galaxy S5, 2014’s flagship of the company, among other things.
It seems Samsung now knows what design and aesthetics Galaxy S5 should have had, and is now rectifying the deal with the launch of Galaxy A7 in that price segment. While the Galaxy S4 is still selling, we wouldn’t be surprised if Galaxy S5 doesn’t that long of a shelf life and is retired earlier than usual, thanks to the launch of Galaxy A7, and poor reception of Galaxy S5.
Anyway, back to Galaxy A7, it’s a nice device — not the stunner exactly looks-wise but a certain good looking device from Samsung, which is quite rare to be honest.’
Slim metallic body (the borders, you see), nice camera (13MP and 5MP), 2GB of RAM, nice 2600 mAh battery, Octa-core processor and LTE support make Galaxy A7 a worthy device, even though it is easily overpriced if you compare it to a budget phone like Yureka which also houses a Octa-core processor, 2GB RAM and LTE for a low price of $140 — nearly one-third of that of Galaxy A7.
Besides, we aren’t all that impressed by the display in use in Galaxy A7, even though it’s Super AMOLED one, because of the low score of 267 PPI. Meaning, the display isn’t crisp at all, and you will not like it if you have used a display with higher PPI before. For a large 5.5-inch display Galaxy A7 sports, Samsung should have gone for a Full HD resolution. Sadly, that’s not the case and it leaves too much wanted here.
