Samsung Galaxy A7 Overview
Sometimes it's all about making a statement. The Galaxy A7 does just that - as part of Samsung's thinnest ever smartphone range, with a full metal unibody, the Korean firm has never produced a more attractive set of phones.
At only 6.3mm and with a 72.5% screen to body ratio, this really is a sleek, smart experience at home with any fashion conscious user or just as a functional, tidy upgrade.
The new Galaxy A range is designed to hit a sweet spot between high function and high design, without overpowering you with extra features and capabilities the standard user may not need.
The A7 utilises one of Qualcomm's newest processors, the 615. An octa-core chip that is effectively two quad-core processors, one at 1.7 GHz and the other at 1.0 GHz, they can work together seamlessly to deliver the power you need when you need it. Running together you will be able to run all your favourite apps or games without any slowdown and can effectively multitask.
Add to this a high resolution HD Super AMOLED screen and 13 Megapixel camera, and you have a handset that can both take and display images as beautiful as it looks.
Samsung's Adaptive Display technology also allows for the screen to subtly change contrast levels depending on your surroundings, making it easier to view and read when changing from light to dark, or inside to outside.
Camera performance is hugely desirable and the A7 ensures every box is ticked, not just with a top-quality 13 MP main camera but also a 5 MP front-facing unit. With added features such as Wide Selfie, Palm Selfie, Animated GIF and Beauty Face, sharing your perfect selfies and snaps with friends across social networks has never been easier.
Add some Samsung specific features including Ultra-Power Saving Mode to keep your battery lasting longer, Private Mode, so you can show your phone off or pass it to the kids without unwanted eyes on your profiles, and Multiscreen, for proper multitasking.
