Do you want to sell or trade your Samsung Galaxy A7 (2017)?
Yes? Good, you’re at the right place.
But first, I need you to determine if you want to trade your phone for a better version, or if you want to sell it for cash?
After you decide, we’ll walk you through the steps to cash in or trade up.
In the meantime, let’s review your phone.
First impressions are very important. It’s like going on a first date. You expect your date to be groomed, well dressed, and to have good posture. Without saying a word to each other, you can pretty much discern what you’re getting yourself into. In other words, the Galaxy A7 is a handsome phone that makes a very good first impression.
The Galaxy A7 has a metallic frame and a curved glass back. Despite the back being made entirely of glass, it sits firmly in hand and isn’t slippery at all. This is thanks to the Galaxy A7's hefty size. It has a decent weight, coming in at 6.56 oz. And it’s 7.9 mm thickness helps keep the camera flush with the back.
There’s a hybrid dual-SIM slot on top, a headphone jack on the bottom, and a power and volume rocker on either side. Interestly, the speaker is located above the power button. This helps from keeping the speaker muffled.
Smartphones are notorious for being muffled in the typical locations such as the speakers on the back and bottom. The Galaxy A7 doesn’t have that problem, which is great. It needs all the help it can get because, quite frankly, the speakers aren’t that loud.
The Galaxy A7 boasts a 5.7-inch display and is powered by the Android 6.0 OS (Android 8 available), Exynos 7880 SoC, and the emphasis—love it, or hate it—Touchwiz UI.
Once things get rolling, the phone runs as smooth as butter. However, the problem occurs trying to get things running like opening apps, for instance. It has a slight delay and it often takes two or three times to tap to get it working. While we could throw shade at the CPU, it would be convicting the innocent. The real culprit lies in the UI.
Touchwiz doesn’t have a good reputation for a reason. In fact, there’s several articles that go on-and-on bashing the UI. And many other articles rejoicing and singing hymns when Samsung designed to move from Touchwiz to something else.
On the other hand, the CPU is very efficient. And does what it is supposed to do and more. It clocks in at 1.9GHz. While it’s not as fast as other budget phones in its category, it’s largely thanks to Touchwiz stuffing every app under the sun. Despite the clunky UI working the CPU to death, the CPU takes the brunt of the workload off the battery.
The Galaxy A7 Battery life is superb. It managed to last over 11 hours on PC Mark Work 2.0 battery test. With regular usage, the 3600 mAh Li-ion battery could last 24 hours easily.
The Galaxy A7 has both 16 MP cameras with f/1.9 aperture in the rear and front. As I stated before, the camera sits flush with the frame. The main differences between the two cameras is that the rear camera boasts a LED flash, panorama, and HDR. So low light photos are obviously better with the rear camera.
Despite the wide aperture, LED flash, and HDR, photos will still be blurry in extreme low light and moving targets. To reduce the blurry effect, you’ll need to shoot a tripod or steady surface. But under the right conditions, both cameras do an excellent job. The colors are sharp and vibrant with good contrast and details.
The biggest gripe about the camera is the time it takes to capture and load the camera app. It’s not the camera fault, it's that darn Touchwiz UI system. It’ll be nice if the camera app opens and snaps pictures instantly. But you don’t get that with the Galaxy A7. But once it snaps, the camera does a fine good job.
