I actually need to decide between Samsung J7 Prime & Samsung A7, ASAP. What would you guys recommend?
My usage is fairly on social media apps & camera. Not heaving gaming & stuff like that. Would love to get a genuine opinion as I'm very confused.
JGSK, 05 May 2017Forgive my opinion, but I must be honest about my product impressions. The cameras are horr... moreThink you got a fake one there, have seen it here in my shops in Namibia, the fake one is 1000 Nam Dollars less than the original which is made in UK not China. Look at the back.
Forgive my opinion, but I must be honest about my product impressions.
The cameras are horrible. The front camera is shit, the photos are always blurry, under any light condition, has no manual or automatic focus. Despite having 16mp, the photos have a quality comparable to a 2mp camera. The rear camera sucks too, has no stabilization at all, no optics, no digital, photos constantly blur, even if you have a steady hand, and the videos make it look like you're in the midst of an earthquake. Even cheaper smartphones like the Moto G5 Plus have a reasonably decent stabilization, but the Samsung A 2017 line has absolutely nothing! While competing devices in the same price range or even cheaper record at 4k or 60fps, they have optical stabilization, manual features like shutter speed, ISO up to 12800, and RAW support. The Galaxy A7 2017 has only 800 ISO, does not record in 4k, nor 60fps, only 1080p with 30fps. It does not support RAW, and the professional mode is completely useless. The digital sensor does not work properly. The charger cable is very short, only 119cm. Memory management sucks too. 5 minutes after you rebooted the device has about 1.6gb of available RAM, a few minutes later it drops to 1gb or less. Since nothing was opened and all non-native apps are suspended, none of them was taking up memory space. Many unneeded apps in the background take up ram and drain battery. Performance is satisfactory. The battery life is also decent. The quality of construction looks good, but in fact it is not. The back cover is not Gorilla Glass, any drop will make it shatter whole. The interface is good, and the screen is larger (5.7 ") than most smartphones, offering greater visual comfort and ease of typing. Device does not seem to live up to its price.
A7 2017 very nice looking phone. Much better performance. Good camera day or night. Exelent battery life.

Anonymous, 03 May 2017That's a lie. All you mentioned is a lie.No man its not a lie

raj2427, 04 May 2017Which is better A7 (2017) or C9pro?Depends on what youre looking for.
C9 pro is great for gaming
(90k+ antutu 6 score, correct me if im wrong)
A7 2017 not so much, but it has water/dust resistance
Probably good for someone who's active/works outdoors
Big AMOLED screen (6" & 5.7") make both phones good for multimedia
(Youtube, watching movies, etc)
I am using galaxy a7 2017 very nice phone. Excellent performance. I love it.
