When you think of a Samsung smartphone your mind probably turns to its flagship Galaxy S series. And while it's no doubt the Galaxy S series is one of the best range of smartphones on the market, that quality and feature set costs you.
That’s why Samsung also has the Galaxy A series. This series is designed to give you many of the feature sets of the flagship series, but with fewer high-end components, meaning the Galaxy A series costs a lot less. It’s always a tricky balancing act when a company tries to make a good-enough phone that still delivers good performance and looks nice to boot.
Apple does it pretty well with its iPhone SE line and now Samsung does it pretty well with its Galaxy A series line. Here are 10 reasons the Samsung Galaxy A7 kicks ass.
#1 It’s Got A HUGE Display
The 5.7in display on the Samsung Galaxy A7 is no slouch. It’s a Super AMOLED with a 1920 x 1080 (FHD) resolution. Sure, that doesn’t match the screen quality on the S series, but it's more than good enough for watching high definition movies and browsing the web.
#2 It’s Got Expandable Storage
The Samsung Galaxy A7 doesn’t skimp on the storage options either. While it only comes with 32GB of built-in storage, it supports microSD cards so you can add another 256GB of storage if you need it.
#3 It Offers A Model With Dual SIMs
Another nice feature is the Samsung Galaxy A7 is made in both single SIM and dual SIM models. The dual SIM option is great for those who do a lot of traveling overseas as it allows you to effortlessly switch between SIMs and carriers.
#4 It’s Water Resistant
The Samsung Galaxy A7 is certified as IP68, which means it’s both dust and water resistant. Matter of fact the Samsung Galaxy A7 can be immersed in 1.5 meters of water for up to 30 minutes.
#5 It Doesn’t Skimp On The Sensors
Many mid-range smartphones save money on cost by eliminating some of the more advanced sensor components. Not the Samsung Galaxy A7, however. This baby is packed with an Accelerometer, Barometer, Fingerprint Sensor, Gyro Sensor, Geomagnetic Sensor, Hall Sensor, Proximity Sensor, and RGB Light Sensor.
#6 It’s Got A Great Battery
Its built-in battery is a respectable 3600mAh in size. That gives you up to 23 hours of talk time or a whopping 59 hours of music playback. With that size battery, the Samsung Galaxy A7 will have “all day” battery life at around 13 hours.
#7 It Supports USB-C
Another nice feature is the Samsung Galaxy A7 supports both USB 3.0 and USB-C connectivity. And thanks to USB-C’s reversible plug orientation, you’ll never plug your Samsung Galaxy A7 in the wrong way.
#8 It Supports S Voice
Smartphones today are all about personal digital assistants, and the Samsung Galaxy A7 is no different. It supports the company’s own S Voice technology, which allows you to speak voice commands to the smartphone to carry out tasks on it.
#9 It’s Got An “Always On” Display
Another nice thing about the Samsung Galaxy A7’s display is that it features an “Always On Display” that shows you your clock and calendar even when the phone is locked and the normal display tech is off. This means you don’t have to waste battery power by waking your phone from sleet just to check the time.
#10 It Comes In Beautiful Color Options
The final reason the Samsung Galaxy A7 kicks ass is that it comes in unique color options. You have your standard choice of black or gold, but we really dig the “Peach Cloud” and “Blue Mist” color options, which other smartphone manufacturers don’t offer.
