"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.

AnonD-404798, 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).
in most regions the old a7 had the powerful 5430 octa which is considerably faster than s615. so pretty much a fail successor.
This is retailing for 500 USD in India, which is just below flagship territory. Using a Snapdragon 615 in a 500 USD phone is daylight robbery. You have 200$ phones that are running on the same oc. It's a poor strategy for Samsung, equipping their premium midrange phones with underwhelming hardware, especially with the gamut of superb value phones available in that range.
Samsung doesn't command enough of brand loyalty to fleece customers like this.
Either it should have been priced around $400, or it should have used something like a Snapdragon 652, 808 or even the Helio X10 to make it a better value proposition
Isn't it Diamond Pentile instead of RGB matrix in the display section? Samsung hasn't put an RGB SAMOLED panel on their devices ever since Tab S2 10.1.
them better back to plastic, the glass back is nuisance, really not comfort in hand
