Samsung Galaxy A7 2018 | Samsung A7 Review

Samsung is the biggest name in Android phones that launches a wide range of smartphones which may be the perfect fit depending on customer needs and budget.  The Samsung Galaxy A7 is a great mid-range phone that delivers a punchy screen for the price and a solid user experience. It is also the first smartphone from Samsung with a triple camera setup. The Samsung A7 features a glass front and back, but has a slightly hollow feel. Still, at 7.5mm thin it’s slender, and the AMOLED screen tech separates it from the pack, while having good choice of colour options. Two volume buttons and a flat, recessed, easy to hit power button are on the right-hand side of the phone, while on the left is the SIM tray that supports two SIM cards and a microSD card.

Design and Display

The power button doubles as the fingerprint scanner, while it’s not as quick as flagship fingerprint scanners. But it works reliably and there’s also Face Unlock to work in tandem. A7 sports a good AMOLED screen packing a Full HD+ resolution which at 6 inches delivers 411ppi. There are no less than three cameras on the back of the phone starting with a 24Mp sensor with an f/1.7 aperture. This is accompanied by an 8Mp (f/2.4) ultrawide angle and a 5Mp depth sensor.The A7 can take some nice shots with good contrast, colour and detail. The wide-angle lens is handy which allows to get more into each shot. Having a portrait mode is also useful and Live Focus means you can adjust the level of blur before or after you’ve taken the shot.The front 24MP camera offers great levels of detail but the absence of backlit HDR causes blown out lights in sunny environments. 

Samsung A7 is powered by Exynos 7885 chipset which offers powerful Cortex A73 cores along with 4GB of RAM. Transitions are quite smooth and multi-tasking is breezy. Regular web browsing and app usage work pretty well. A7 has a 3300mAh battery which is enough to last through the day in regular usage. It lacks fast charging which is quite disappointing.

Samsung A7 price in Nepal – Rs. 43,990.
