Samsung Galaxy A7 2017 Description


The South Korean handset maker, Samsung, after having received lots of flak for its device and build quality, finally set on the right path last year with its flagship devices. From premium design to specifications, Samsung has done everything right to climb up to number one again. Now that the brand is convinced that the new design is working, it is bringing the same to other mid-range handsets as well. The latest generation of Galaxy A series seem to be having all the design elements and some features from their flagship counterparts. Here is a brief overview of the latest Galaxy A7 (2017) and it seems like a great device to look forward to.

Why Should You buy?

Curved design: As mentioned above, the handset comes with the major design element from the flagship device. This means that there is same curved rear and front panel on Galaxy A7 (2017) as was seen in Galaxy Note 7. The rear panel has curved glass giving it a comfortable grip, whereas, the front panel is 2.5D that integrates seamlessly in the metal chassis of the handset. All in all, the handset feels as premium as flagship devices and looks great as well.

Always On Display: This feature first appeared on the Samsung Galaxy S6 and has been loved by Samsung users. It keeps a portion of the battery on, displaying important notifications, time, calendar or other user specified things without eating too much into the battery. Now, the brand is bringing it to the A series with Galaxy A7 (2017).

IP68 rating for water and dust resistance: This is the first for a mid-range smartphone but Samsung has done it. Samsung has integrated the IP68 water and dust resistance to the Galaxy A7 (2017). Notably, the flagship and best smartphone of last year, Galaxy S7 Edge too comes with the same rating.

Fingerprint Scanner: Galaxy A series did come with the fingerprint scanner but some criticism were received regarding the sensitivity of the same. The all new Galaxy A7 (2017) will come with the same fingerprint scanner as the one on Galaxy S7.

Powerful Cameras: There are not many smartphones at the moment that offer powerful cameras on both front and rear panel. However, Galaxy A7 (2017) is not the one to be left behind. Samsung has equipped the upcoming device with 16 Megapixels cameras on both front and rear panel, which is sure to appease photography lovers.

Why Should You Not buy?

Better options available: While the handset is a great device to begin with and comes from a brand that happens to be the most trusted, the competition in the market has saturated. There are now much better devices that offers the same performance, design and user experience at much lesser price, most of which are from Chinese makers.
