Unlocked Samsung Galaxy A7 (2017) now available in the US

The Galaxy A7 (2017), one of Samsung's nicest mid-range smartphones released this year, is now available to buy in the US. More exactly, the handset is not officially released stateside by Samsung, but you can purchase its dual SIM version from B&H Photo Video.

While you may also find the Galaxy A7 (2017) through third-party vendors via Amazon, you're not getting any kind of US warranty by buying it that way. At B&H, the retailer offers the phone with 1-year warranty, asking $379.99 for it. 

The blue and gold variants of the handset are in stock at B&H right now, while the black one is coming soon - you can order any of the three models via the source link below. You will be able to use the smartphone on AT&T and T-Mobile (LTE included), but not on Sprint and Verizon.

Recently updated to Android 7.0 Nougat, the Galaxy A7 (2017) has a metal-and-glass body, and sports a pretty large 5.7-inch Super AMOLED display with 1080 x 1920 pixels. You're also getting a fingerprint scanner, a pretty capable octa-core Exynos 7880 processor, 3 GB of RAM, 32 GB of expandable storage space, and a long-lasting 3600 mAh battery. Moreover, just like the high-end Galaxy S8 and Note 8, this new Galaxy A7 is water-resistant. For further information about the phone, make sure to read our Samsung Galaxy A7 (2017) review.

I would get a 2 years old flagship over this or any of the A series for that price. Samsung strips them so much of the basic hardware and software features. Usually they come without a hyptic feedback engine, notification led, capacitive buttons' led, and an average cameras. They do come with AOD, but it's also stripped from lots of it's useful features. My father in-law have the A8 2016, and for the price he paid for it, he could've got the Note 5 instead.

I'm with you. I had to use a J7 for a few weeks after my Note 5 was stolen. I was amazed at how many features it was lacking that my Note 2 had. No ambient light sensor, no LED notification, & no palm swipe screenshot just to name a few. I'll never use anything other than a flagship again.

They are stripped down of so many features that mid-rangers from other OEMs comes packed with.

I don't know, the A series this year are all water resistant. So many mid rangers are lacking that. I disabled the LED notification but it's there, along with AOD and obviously a fingerprint scanner. Valid points but it's all about what trade offs are okay with you to miss, which is really the case for most mid-range phones anyway.

Man they need to do the A3 and add the proper network bands. Samsung's don't usually catch my eye, but the A3 seems like a good size, specs and price balance. I could probably deal with the skinned Android.

I would have loved if they brought the A8 to the US.

I wish that they had the A3 there too, but props to B&H for this!

The A3 is available online on Amazon and eBay too.

The A3 is missing several US bands. That's why I haven't tried one.

This. The few ones selling have the wrong bands. I got one of the ones with the right band but I would have preferred to buy it from B&H because they are a great company. Additionally, you have a 30 day return policy with them, unlike a lot of sellers.
