The Samsung Galaxy A7 is, for the most part, a great mid-range telephone. It delivers a screen for the cost and a solid user experience, while the camera system is really versatile. Additionally, it has great battery life and plenty of storage. It does feel a touch hollow, with too little fast charging being unsatisfactory, micro USB interface and the framework paling. You can grab the Galaxy A7 with assurance, In case you are phased by none of that though.

Three rear cameras
6-inch FHD Super AMOLED display
Looks like a flagship, plays like a mid-ranger
Sporting a glass front and back coupled with a plastic frame, the Galaxy A7 2018 includes a mixture of mid-range and flagship materials.
It does however feature an impressive Super AMOLED display, amongst the best you can get in this price range. The 1080 x 2220 resolution is perfectly decent without being cumbersome, and the size is large.
The A7 is operating Android 8.0 Oreo; it’s a shame it did not get Android 9 Pie, the latest version of Google’s mobile operating system, though program support will still be excellent thanks to Google Play store service. It’ll get Pie, but Samsung has not given any time-frame.
The Exynos 7885 chipset powering the A7 is distinctly middle-of-the-road, and is paired with 4GB of RAM. As for the cameras, the triple-camera system on the back of the telephone is a first from Samsung, with one ultra-wide a single wide and a single depth-sensing camera.
With 3,300mAh of battery power on tap, the screen to battery ratio is promising too. Connections and biometrics will also be honest, thanks to the inclusion of a headset jack, 4G, face unlocking along with a fingerprint scannernonetheless, that the Galaxy A7 is also the only #300/$450+ device we can think of that does not feature a USB-C port, which makes do with the older micro USB connection.
Plastic and glass design
micro USB charging
Priced at the upper end of this mid century spectrum, the A7 2018 is competing with all the Huawei Mate 20 Lite, Motorola One and Nokia 7.1.
Much like the contest, the Samsung A7 includes a glass back and front. It seems good but includes a slightly hollow texture, therefore is bested by the superbly designed Nokia 7.1 in this respect. The sides are also plastic and they feel it, further demonstrating to the phone positioning.
Nevertheless, in 7.5mm lean it is slim, and the AMOLED screen technician distinguishes it from the pack, while you’ve got a good choice of color choices, together with all the A7 available in blue, black, gold and pink. It’s a clean design, interrupted only by a couple of a small camera bulge and logos around the back.
Two volume buttons and a horizontal, recessed, simple to strike power button are all on the right-hand side of the phone, while on the left would be the SIM tray, with our dual-SIM model supporting two SIM cards and a microSD card.
The power button doubles as the fingerprint scanner, a design choice borrowed from Sony telephones of old. While it’s not quite as fast as flagship fingerprint scanners, it functions not even requiring a media to unlock the A7 and there Face Unlock put you into your mobile quickly and to operate in tandem.
As for the A7’s durability, Gorilla Glass keeps the front and rear relatively protected, although there’s no official IP evaluation, so you will want to keep it dry.
6-inch 18.5:9 LCD screen, 1080 x 2220 pixels
Samsung has paired the A7 using a seriously great AMOLED screen packing a complete HD+ resolution. Getting down to digits, that means.
A few things set this phone besides Samsung’s flagship Galaxy S9. First off, it’s got some pretty beefy bezels, using a 74.4percent screen-to-bezel ratio compared to this S9’s 83.6%.
The screen is not curved either, and it does not give the same levels of colour accuracy or detail because of its flagship counterpart’s.
For the cost, however, it impresses, packaging depth and punch — more so than the IPS competition. The 1 area where it is not always reliable is balance, using an old-school OLED tinge to ebooks or web pages with a great deal of empty space.
For photographs, movies and standard UI swiping however, the Samsung Galaxy A7’s screen nails it.
