Whats the price of this phone?? Nice review, but without the price, who knows if they can afford it.

Mr Gsmarena, please get the facts before you post the review. Which part of the world you live in...A7 is half the price of Note4 and it is also less than note3! You actually are not bothered to give a right review! Please compare the screens of A7 and the note3...you will definetely feel that A7's screen is much crisper and lot more impressive.
So, from this article I didn't understand if A7 is more beautiful and better built , than the HUGE bezel, heavier, bigger overall(even with same 5.5" display), fugly plastic inserts, bendable, less hardware featured iPhone 6 Plus?
•Extra SIM and microSD card share a slot, you can't have both in the Dual-SIM version"
LOL . And iPhone, G3, M9 , Z3 have not this "disadvantage". Right?
Bashing Samsung you guys are PATHETIC!
Anonymous, 10 Mar 2015Only? for less than that you can buy one plus one,xiaomi mi4 that are much better Much better how? Not everyone cares about specs, actually the average consumer doesn't care about the details that's why I said the A-series appeals to people who want an affordable nicely built branded phone. Note the keywords: nicely built, branded. The build quality of the A-series is much much better than the Oneplus and Mi4 and so is Samsung as a brand.

IPhones sell well due to iSheep - none removable battery issue is irrelevant In this case.
Nokia died because it was killed off my Microsoft - not because some devices had removable batteries.
If this device is the same price as the Note4 but is (seemingly) inferior in every way - why does it exist??

And why must LCDs are purposely calibrated to be saturated. Or the company just could not properly calibrate it. And you are stuck in the one color mode you get.
And LCD I'd good for oh I don't know fake blacks, usually whites, and washy contrast.

in most Asia countries, A7 is only slightly above $400. Consider the build quality, the pricing of A7 is very attractive.
The a3, a5, and a7 aren't for power users but just people who want an affordable nicely built branded phone -- and that's most people.
The A5 is only $355 usd in Hong Kong, the A7 $425 -- not bad coming Samsung.
In the review gsmarena said the back panel is made of plastic but other sites said its a full metal jacket, so which is which now, is the back panel made of plastic or aluminum? Is it also the same with the A5 and A3?
kanchan, 10 Mar 2015How is the best phone samsung a5 or a7,please help me........Its better if you read the reviews of both and then decide rather than asking it to strangers.
Great review, as always. This time however, the phone price seems to be playing the major role but there is actually no amount mentioned other then that A7 is slightly less then Note 4 and more expensive then the Note 3. But, in Thailand, A7 is unlocked and sells for less then $500 which is much cheaper then the Note 4 ($850) and even cheaper then Note 3 (going for about $650). It seems like Samsung priced A7 much better for this market and that makes it a very good value here. I think your review should take into account different pricing for different markets and focus more on phones actual Pros & Cons.
