By default, Samsung Galaxy A7 uses the adaptive display mode and you can change it by going to settings display and screen mode. But we prefer it to use it with the basic mode which is much more color accurate and in fact, it is one of the most accurate phones that we have tested.  Now outdoors this is not the brightest display I measured it with iPhone 6s plus. I founded in many cases it is actually easier to see outdoors. So good job.

Now interface and Touch wiz feels outdated and ships with Android Lollipop instead of marshmallow. And we are not sure it is gonna update to Marshmallow sooner.  The touch wiz has been improved comparing to the prior Samsung devices but that is not a big deal. The Samsung can do a better job but this is not the best one. It does not have any LED notification light so this is a bit downside for some people who are habituated for the LEDs. The picture clarity is very good.


Samsung Galaxy A7 has Samsung’s regular camera interface. The camera is not that great and generally missing many colors. Up front you have 5MP camera for selfies and it takes selfies in a very wide format and a lot of the image is coming to the view which we don’t expect and this is certainly not great.  But if you are trying to fit a group of people it is fairly useful. Overall the front camera is also good and giving the best selfies.
