What i would like to see in the new samsung is a larger battery bigger fingerprint security button. The NFC payment or called android pay switched on in the Uk so i can pay for stuff contactless with my phone and is not just Apple. Second I would like the marshmellow 6 operating system available to me.
I am user of previous A7, very satisfied. I do not see much reason for upgrading to A7(2016). It has became heavier and I do not believe that increased battery will change my everyday charge routine.
Performance also is not much improved, and any other parameters too. Only 3GB of RAM, but I am not using so much apps to struggle with 2GB.
So not an option as upgrade for previous A7.
As matter of size, I got used to it pretty fast, and now friends S5 seems very small. My next step probably will be S7 or one of Notes, but those are out of A7 budget, in which A7 still is best choice for it's size.
these kind of "phones" are made for Yeti not for humans. How can I put this "phone" in my jeans? :)
I am not living in Siberia so that I can wear a jacket all the time...
'....5.5" screen size. This sort of size has turned into somewhat of a sweetspot for a phablet'
Yup. Only if it's not on huge footprint phone like iPhone6 Plus/6S Plus.
For Note though, 5.7" display size is way better size than 5.5" on Note 2.
"Samsung reinvented itself last year and that gave the A-series a chance for a coup. It took the great new design from the S-phones and parred it down to a mid-range price."
Samsung should really re-define those "mid-range price" if they're not willing to lost it's market share to competitors

Dear GSMArena ,
I would like to know the model name of Samsung A7 2016 that you tested. I want to buy exactly like that one (with just the word Samsung on the back). Please reply as soon as possible. Thank you
price really high plus no guarantee of getting android 6.0 no buying
GSMA keep saying the A series is "on budget" but it clearly out of budget what with the competition.
I would go out on a limb and say that HTC (famous for not-so-friendly price in the past) One X9 at $387 (or $400) is a better value than this.
Shame that's yet to be released elsewhere outside China.

DarkMaster, 06 Feb 2016sry but it's '' xiaomi '' main reason not to buy it.If Xiaomi is a good reason not to buy a phone my guess is you deserve to have your wallet raped by Samsung.
Can somebody tell me why do the A-series have better design than the flagships? It started with the first A series. I really want that design, but I want it with flagship specs. Why the curves on flagships, Samsung? They make any device look less high-end and feminine (just google basics on design).
