And how does it work? Pretty good! The phone does not irritate with lags or hang-ups, it ably runs and closes apps, it ensures a smooth work of most apps available in the Google store. Exynos 7885, supported with 4GB of RAM works without any problems with utility apps, we can enjoy games on this phone, even those more demanding ones.
During the work we will not feel a heightened heat emission, though benchmarks showed a slight efficiency downfall after a longer period of a more intensive work – which is probably connected with the increased temperature inside the housing.
The battery of Galaxy A7 evokes mixed feelings. It has a 3300 mAh capacity and basically I should commend it. The full battery can withstand a whole day of an intensive work.
In my case, when I have started a normal usage of the phone after first tests, the battery lasted for two days of work, though it happened that it went down slightly earlier. It depended on the usage scenario, but we must mention that in an emergency situation there is the power saving mode. It would have been great if it was not for the lack of quick charging. Filling an empty battery with the charger from the set takes around 2.5 hours.
When it comes to the communication aspect, Samsung Galaxy A7 has all that we need. There is NFC, dual-channel Wi-Fi and two separate slots for SIM cards. The phone ensures a high quality of sound, it is good enough for the loud speaking mode as well (provided that we will not cover the speaker with our hand).
The smartphone is equipped with a comfortable dialler and a Samsung keyboard, while for the DualSIM we have a separate, friendly tab in the menu. I did not notice any problems with maintaining the coverage, GPS works appropriately, there are no problems while connecting through Bluetooth or Wi-Fi.
There is a minijack, and in addition – what is less and less common in smartphones – FM radio – and with the possibility to record broadcasts. Samsung provides the Dolby Atmos system and an enhanced equalizer with the Adapt Sound function, thanks to which we can adjust the sound correction to our hearing capabilities. Good impressions are ruined by the added earphones and the lack of a “Samsung” music player.
