Design & Display:
The Samsung Galaxy A7 has a 2.5D glass back and metal body. This makes the device look and feel premium. The rounded edges of the Galaxy A7 make it easy to hold and it is also pretty light. The back sports the triple camera setup, which is the highlight of the device. Another new design aspect is the side mounted fingerprint sensor which doubles up as the power button.
The Samsung Galaxy A7 has a 6 inch FHD+ Super AMOLED display. The display has a native resolution of 2220 x 1080 pixels. The display has an ‘always on’ feature, which shows the time and important notifications at all times. The quality of the display is top notch and it has great viewing angles as well.
The positioning of the fingerprint scanner on the power button is surely convenient. The scanner is located at a position which your finger would take naturally, while holding the device. The fingerprint scanner is very responsive and helps to gain access into the device quickly. The device also has Face Recognition which is also extremely responsive.
The device has Dolby ATMOS technology which gives a good sound output and also has a 3.4 mm headphone jack. One can also swipe either up or down to access the apps and swiping up from the bottom of the screen gives access to Samsung Pay Mini.
The highlight of the device is the Triple Camera Setup which is surely worth the hype. The vertical camera setup includes a 24 MP f/1.7 sensor, a 5 MP f/2.2 sensor and a 8 MP f/2.4 sensor. The 5 MP sensor is for Bokeh while the 8 MP sensor is an Ultra Wide lens.
The Ultra Wide lens is very useful in day to day situations. You can capture the entire scene without having to step back or kneel down. Samsung claims that the lens can see as wide as the human eye and the lens works in both video and photo mode.
The Galaxy A7 also uses the Super Pixel technology to combine 4 pixels into 1, offering superior low light performance. The device also has a Live Focus feature which lets you set the background blur while clicking the picture and also to change it, after the image has been captured. Another interesting feature is the portrait Dolly mode. This lets you create a dolly zoom effect which can be saved as either a GIF or video.
It also has slow motion video and hyper lapse capability, which is pretty good. The device also detects 19 scenes such as food, flower, street, etc to optimise the colour settings and provide a better output. You can also create a closed group and share your images over WiFi. The Social Camera option on the device lets you share the images instantly on FaceBook, WhatsApp and FB Messenger.
The Front Camera of the device houses a 24 MP sensor. It has a ‘wide selfie’ feature which lets you pan left and right to capture the entire scene. It also has features such as selfie focus and pro lighting modes to help enhance your selfies.
The AR Emoji feature is available on both the rear and the front camera of the device. This feature lets you create customisable Emojis on the basis of face, skin, hair, features, clothes, etc. With this, you can then turn your selfie or image into an emoji.
