Samsung Galaxy A7 (2017) review: Marathoner with a punch

22 March 2017
A Samsung for every taste - that seems to be the main mantra of the Korean giant as of late, as evident by its sprawling and ever-expanding smartphone lineup. We guess it's always good to have more options, but we just can't shake the feeling that some of Samsung's recent creations are beginning to overlap and thread in each other's territory at least from the global perspective we have.

Also gorilla glass is scratch resistant, not scratch proof. A nail can easily scratch its surface. I scratched my screen from my keys when I placed my phone in my bag while traveling.

KAM , 22 Dec 2017Does the Samsung galaxy A7 2017 have led light notification?No, it doesn't. But it has the always on feature so it's better than an led dot. You can actually see the time, date, and notifications. And it moves around the screen from time to time to avoid led burn in.

Only big difference is that the A7 is water resistant, usb type C, 16mp front and back cameras, 5.7 inch screen, and glass back. The processor may be better but the J7 pro is also optimized well and both run nougat (A7 can be update) so performance will only vary depending on the user.

That's the purpose of the 32gb internal memory. You use the sd card option to store images, videos, voice recordings, etc. You can even download movies and watch them on the go without worrying of getting your internal storage full. It is still a useful feature and it benefits those who need it or those know how to utilize its purpose.

Sd card is useless in a samsung device. If you think that you need it, avoid samsung. Since android 6, google limits access on Sd card. You need to format it as internal storage to have full access. But guess what? Samsung does not allow internal storage.
