Samsung Galaxy A7 (2018) review

 

Three cameras, good looks and a great screen

Great screen ; Generous amount of storage ; Versatile camera system

Micro USB charging port ; Body feels hollow ; Poor low light camera performance

The Samsung Galaxy A7 is, for the most part, a great mid-range phone. It delivers a punchy screen for the price and a solid user experience, while the camera system is really versatile. It also has great battery life and plenty of storage. Having said...

Samsung Galaxy A7 (2018) Smartphone Review

 

All good things come in threes. According to our tests, the highlight of the Samsung Galaxy A7 (2018) is not its triple camera. It is another hardware element that beats every other mid-range smartphone.

great OLED panel ; good battery runtimes ; solid workmanship ; precise GPS ; three slots ; triple camera

plastic frame ; SoC not quite up to par ; old USB standard ; slow fingerprint reader

The Samsung Galaxy A7 (2018) excels in our test with its great Super AMOLED panel that can become very bright, has extremely precise color reproduction and it has stable viewing angles. On top of that, it has good contrasts thanks to the perfect black...

Samsung Galaxy A7 Review: Decent cameras and good looks don't cut it anymore

 

The Galaxy A7 is Samsung trying hard to find its feet in a segment which they've ignored for too long.

Great display ; Good battery life ; Above average camera

Horrible for gaming ; Laggy UI ; Impossible to multitask

Should you buy the Galaxy A7? No.

Samsung Galaxy A7 review: A triple-camera smartphone at an amazing price

 

Samsung's Galaxy A7 brings triple-camera technology down to an affordable level: is this the new mid-price king of smartphones?

Excellent photos in good light ; Lovely design ; Long-lasting battery

Mediocre performance ; micro-USB charging

Still, if you have your heart set on a triple-camera phone then the Samsung Galaxy A7 ticks that box at a very tempting price – and it has a superb screen to boot.

Samsung Galaxy A7 (2018)

 

A mid-range phone with triple rear cameras is a rare thing, especially at under £300 but the Galaxy A7 isn't an instant winner. Find out why in our full review.

Samsung Galaxy A7 (2018) Review

 

The newest Galaxy A7 2018 is a big, 6-inch phone with a glass back and a triple camera system, but does it have what it takes to beat the new kings in the affordable phone arena?…

Glass design ; Beautiful AMOLED screen ; Above-average battery life

Camera quality is bad ; Noticeably big bezels ; Having the fingerprint reader on the side is not very convenient ; microUSB rather than USB-C… in 2018 ; No 4K video support ; Charges slowly ; Slippery

Samsung Galaxy A7 (2018) review: The rise of the mid-range

 

The rate of improvement at the high-end seems to be slowing, while in the mid-range the pace is picking up. The result is a breed of competitively priced devices which look, feel and perform like flagship devices of only a year or two ago. The Samsung...

Vibrant display ; Impressive ; Long-lasting battery

Only two-core GPU ; Single speaker is weak ; Ultra-wide angle camera is only 8MP

Galaxy A7 (2018) review: a triple camera... and what else? | AndroidPIT

 

The Galaxy A7 (2018) is Samsung's answer to all that's been going on in the world of mid-range smartphones. But does Samsung actually manage to set itself apart from Xiaomi, Honor & co.? Find out in our review!

So is having three cameras necessarily better? No, since each of them is dedicated to one thing in particular. However, this setup will give you more options than any other mid-range mobile device. And sure, the Galaxy A7 won't be on the list of the...

Samsung Galaxy A7 (2018) Review

 

The Samsung Galaxy A7 is an eye-catching smartphone with a triple camera, smart design and reasonable price but can it capture good photos? Let's find out as we put it to the test.

The Samsung Galaxy A7 is a stunning looking smartphone but the camera is a little bit of a let down as anything out of 'good light' just lacks punch. It's not that the photos are bad, it's just that they're not as good as the images captured by...

Samsung Galaxy A7 (2018) – Hands-on [Images]

 

In this dual-camera smartphones war, Samsung has done something remarkable by adding a third camera onboard to its newly launched Galaxy A7 (2018). Perhaps, this is the first smartphone from Samsung to feature triple cameras. In addition to that, it...
