The Samsung Galaxy A7 comes out with an impressive spec sheet on paper. And you can’t help but have raised expectations when interfacing with the device. Considering what we have seen with its flagship Galaxy and Note series, there’s a long road ahead before we have a well-rounded experience. With Samsung’s new strategy to focus on bringing new features and experiences down to the mid-range, we hope to see more feature-laden and performance heavy devices in this price segment in the times to come.

Good mid-range smartphone with impressive camera

from Gizbot

By bringing the triple camera setup on a mid-range smartphone, Samsung has proved that it means business. The smartphone has all the features that one would expect from a mid-range device. There are a few areas where the phone could have done a little extra to gain more buyers, but overall this is a good package.
