Have been using the Galaxy A7 (2016 series) for 3 weeks now. The features that i'm really impressed are:
Excellent battery life (3300mAH), lasts for a day with 30% battery remaining. Same to the Galaxy S7 edge.
Charges the device less than 2 hours. It took me 100min to charge from 0% to 100%. The Galaxy A5 charges 5 min less due to battery capacity.
Fast performance (way better than my old Huawei Ascend P6 that I bought 2 years ago). I like fast-performance and fair SoC processors since I use for social networking and music all the time.
No lagging at all (expect for the Flipboard briefing on the homescreen, which you can disable it through the screen and makes it even smoother to the Galaxy J7).
The design is exactly the same as the Galaxy S6 and the S7, however there is no heart-rate or gyroscope sensor, which I didn't need it. There is S Health as well.
The camera is good, but not as good as the Galaxy S6/S7 or Note 5.
I can use 2 sim cards with 1 microSD card at a time. A710FD is the only model that can provide it.
Processor is Exynos 7580, same with Galaxy J7 with 64-bit processing technology.
So far, I rate this device 4/5. Should have been much better. I hope they improve the device with their next Galaxy A (2017 series). Only the metal and glass design might cause the possibility of becoming slippery with your wet or sweaty hands unless you place a hard cover with the device.
Tini, 24 Apr 2016Is it good for gaming guys....no . its not for gamers.
Yet another disappointment.
Samsung you never miss an occassion to fail your customers.
Why i say so? Well last night i bought Samsung A7 for my wife and its been just 18 hours, may be; the phone's screen/display is black out and even the power button isn't performing its functions. But when i call at the number i am getting the ring tone..So i am not sure whether the phone is switched off/on, or the display is not working or the makers have surprised me yet again. So anybody who is looking to buy this phone, please don't waste your money. Rather invest your money i some local or domestic phone within 10-15 K, atleast you will have no expectation from them.
SAMSUNG you are one of the most shitiest makers of SMART phone which is too unsmart to even understand that we hate your cheap quality products. Please STOP your loot. Its our hard earned money.
My A7 (2016) consists of only 2828mb RAM instead of 3GB RAM which comes to 3074mb, I don't why is it so?
vinay , 25 Apr 2016I want to buy Samsung A7 6 , suggest me is it good or not As compare oppo F1 plus f1 plus is good
AnonD-141430, 26 Apr 2016I've been using it for a month now, no such trouble. And now I'm afraid if it might turn up.I'm using since 2 months. No such problem.
Very recommended for you who looking for a smartphone with a good camera for selfie (five stars, can cover your acne or pimple, lookin' good ;), a very nice camera for outdoor activities . And very long battery life (about 30 hrs) if you put it in power saving mode, and more in airplane mode, and use it only for taking pictures/short video (about 50 hrs, I use this when I had to go to some remote areas with no signal). With 3 GB of ram I assure you 'till the moment I post this review is working very well (no lag).
Kinkeen, 18 Apr 2016Anyone has problem with main camera? I've posted 2 times here but seems no one has this exper... moreI've been using it for a month now, no such trouble. And now I'm afraid if it might turn up.
vinay , 25 Apr 2016I want to buy Samsung A7 6 , suggest me is it good or not I won't say it's great, but it definitely is good. I have been using it for a month now; camera, hardware, etc are good enough (not top notch as you might expect from the price bracket), and when it comes to pure looks, nothing can beat it. You would just love to hold the phone in your hands.
AnonD-530230, 25 Apr 2016please cnfrm me does a7 2016 version support clear view covers... properlyYes it does, properly. However it's rather difficult to find the one designed by Samsung. I got mine from a friend who works there.
I am also using A7 6 awesome mobile clearity looking battery backup very class phone..and best part is we use 2sim and 1 memory card different slots
AnonD-520406, 21 Apr 2016try alot of screen mirroring apps in the google play store.maybe they can help you.Pull down your quick settings bar and look for quick connect. It's the same thing. BTW, S7 Edge annihilates this phone ;-) js
pk, 23 Apr 2016hi friends what is this fingerprint reader used for in A7 16 Finger print reader is for unlocking you phone using fingers already registered with phone. It's very quick.
