Samsung Galaxy A7 (2016)


  • Big display (5.5 inches)
  • Thin body, measuring less than 7.5mm/0.3inches (0.29 inches)


No cons




The new Samsug Galaxy A7 (2016) comes with a 5.5" Super AMOLED 1080p display. It is said to be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 processor, clocked at 1.6 GHz and 3 GB of RAM. A 13 MP/5 MP camera duo will take photos, and the phone's main camera unit has now been equipped with optical image stabilization. The Samsung Galaxy A7 (2016) gets a generous 3300 mAh juicer. The phone is slightly thicker now, perhaps to accommodate the bigger battery, and a tad heavier than before.

  • Pixel density:

    Pixel density - The pixel density of a display represents the number of pixels over an area of one inch. It’s measured in “pixels per inch”, or ppi. The higher the number, the more detailed and good-looking the display is.

    • 401 ppi
  • Technology:

    Technology - There are two main screen technologies currently used in phones and tablets: LCD and AMOLED. The former usually features a light source and liquid crystals, while the latter is based on organic light-emitting diodes. Newer LCD variations like IPS-LCD and Super-LCD allow for very accurate color reproduction and very wide viewing angles, where no significant image quality loss is observed. Current AMOLED screens differ in such a way that they can exhibit much more saturated colors (sometimes too much) and incredibly high contrast levels, which is due to black color being completely black in AMOLED displays.
