  • Not the most recent Android version though an update shouldn't be that far away.

Samsung Galaxy A7 2017

  • Samsung Galaxy A7 2017 is built using aluminium and glass which makes it feel very premium .
  • Battery life is good as we managed to go beyond a day of regular use .
  • The 16-megapixel rear sensor has slow focus and lacks good detail in landscapes and macros. It lacks 4K video recording too .
  • The Exynos 7880 provides decent power for the UI and most apps although heavy games don’t always run smoothly .
  • The fingerprint sensor works well and buttons have good feedback .
  • The Super Amoled display produces good colours and brightness although we weren’t to pleased with the tone of the whites.
  • However, given its 5.7-inch display size, the phone feels bulky and heavy. It doesn’t have the best ergonomics either .
