Many people create flagship devices such as Samsung Galaxy S9 and Galaxy Note 9. Also, it is a series of middle level devices with the series "J" and "A". J phones have a competitive price and a "A" range will receive a surcharge. I recently captured the Samsung Galaxy A7 (2018) because I wanted to use Speed Test G and its Exynos processor. I was very impressed that I thought it was a completely written review!
Design of Samsung Galaxy A7 (2018)
The first things that can be warned about A7 are coatings. A7 (2018) may seem slightly inadequate when all the flagship devices display up to the top screen and have a large screen-t0 ratio. When I showed the machine to my teenager in my family, the first reaction was: "Look at the gesture."
A7 (2018), compared to the Galaxy S9 Plus, is less than 10 percent lower than the screen, which is one of the lower reasons. All curve edges will be spent on money during the production process. This does not mean that A7 (2018) is not bad. In fact, if you can see the decoration, it has a beautiful look and feel.
The back of the device has more than 2.5 disks in the back of the back, meaning it is a glass sandwich with any kind of solid plastic frame acting as a filler. The back fiber glass may be a fingerprint magnet or more accurately your finger's magnet, but it's the same as the current line.
The buttons are good, but the volume keys may be slightly distant. All the buttons are on the right side and on the left side of the SIM card. My big problem is the power key – not a power key, but a fingerprint reader. It works as a power button, but it is too narrow to use it for authentication or unlocking, as is the case with other Samsung experiences. Yes, you can wake up and lock your phone using your finger, but not just 100 percent of the time. Once, after that, he is acting again (and even the third time). In my opinion, we have fingerprints damaged by high precision technology.
At the bottom of the unit there is a headphone jack (hooray), a MicroUSB port (not more) and a single speaker. The audio is explicit and does not suffer from harsh and high distortion.
Samsung Galaxy A7 (2018) is displayed
A7 (2018) has 6.0 inch FHD + Super AMOLED Infinity display. It's bright, bright, and bright. The colors are rich and dark, as usual with AMOLED. Once you've got used to decoration, the revival of the display allows you to enjoy the Galaxy A7. You can even think of why you need to spend a lot of money on the flag when you have such devices in your midst.
The private home button does not have a button, so navigating the screen is the order of time, already Samsung's way. The 6.0-inch display offers 2.220 x 1,080 (FHD +) screen resolution, which is the default resolution for Sneakers and flags such as Note 9 (even though they may be higher). The screen size is 18.5: 9 and 411 pixels.
Overall, the display is a powerful addition point for A7 (2018).

Samsung Galaxy A7 (2018) software
A7 (2018) comes from Android 8.0 Oreo and Samsung Experience 9.0. If you're familiar with Samsung's skin and UI, you'll feel at home. Depending on the Samsung Experience Integration feature, the user interface looks and responds to a great flagship. When you put a Note 9 near A7, you should not look at the UI. The Settings menu is the same, the Samsung icons are the same and the same title.
Compared with older brothers – Bixby Voice. When a Bixby home is available (voice on the home screen to the left), the voice assist has not been activated and there is no special Bixby button. In my opinion, Samsung is thinking about the luxury of Bixby's flagship owners. The surprise for me is the Bixby voice deficiency as another reason to buy A7 (2018), but I stand against it! The device still has AI function, but you can still access the Google Assistant by long press on the home key.
Samsung Galaxy A7 (2018) performance
A7 (2018) uses the 14nm Exynos 7885 processor. It includes a 2.2 GHz Cortex-A73 CPU core and eight core processors with six-core 1.6 Hz Cortex-A53 core processor. There are good news and bad news for games. The 7885 has Arm Mali-G71 GPU. G71 is an advanced GPU with the latest Bifrost GPU architecture.
Unfortunately, the G71 can be configured to connect chipmakers, such as Samsung, to the shader core from 1 to 32. Exynos 8895 on Galaxy S8 and Note 8 has a G71 GPU with 20 shader codes. There are two Exynos 7885s. As I said, I tested the device as Asphalt 9 and PUBG Mobile (using graphics settings) and found the gameplay flat.
Exynos 7885 has an integrated LTE modem that supports 2G, 3G and 4G, with LTE download speed up to 600Mbps. Also, the processor of the image signal (which is more about the chamber part). There are 4 GB of RAM (6 GB on some models), 64 GB Internal Memory (128 GB) and microSD card slots.
The A7 (2018) has scored 4379 points in 1524 tests for Geekbench unilateral tests and many of its nuclear tests. Together with the Snapdragon 820, it connects to the same balloon as the Galaxy S7. AnTuTu for GPU scores was 123,302 points. The AnTuTu score since 2017 puts A7 (2018) on the same platform as the flagship device.
Samsung Galaxy A7 (2018) battery
The battery of the A7 (2018) battery is 3,300 mA larger than the Samsung Galaxy S9 and you have enough battery life for the whole day. In my testing, it takes at least six hours to charge each charge. This will increase if you reduce some of the most important requirements, such as watching YouTube. If you like to play 3D games, then there is no fear for at least five hours. Note that screen brightness can dramatically alter battery life. If you increase the brightness to the maximum, wait at least an hour for all the numbers.
Samsung Galaxy A7 (2018) camera
The story of the A7 (2018) camera is simultaneously brilliant and unusual. It's great to have three cameras: one for normal pictures, two for wide angle pictures, and one for depth information. The depth camera enables the depth of field alteration while shooting and later. The main camera has a 24MP sensor and f / 1.7 diaphragm, which is great for lightweight lighting.
The wide-angle camera is 8 MP. It's not enough because of OIS deficiency. This is not enough because it can record FHD at only 30 pounds.
It depends: The best version of Android-2018: the best cameras
Perhaps the "wrong" mistake is not a premium device, but has upgraded the Samsung A7 to the standard standardization level, but only filled up the data. It's hard to talk about the main 24MP camera for everyday use. Colors are true, dynamic range is good, HDR functions are good.
However, the 8 MP wide-angle camera is a bit too wide. Images are often damaged by barrel distortion and slow f / 2.4 aperture is not good at low light.
The third camera – depth information. It uses the 5MP sensor and the f / 2.2 aperture. These numbers are not important because the purpose of this camera is to provide a deeper function. Adding Bokeh mode is, of course, a plus for A7 because it is a feature that is often reserved for optional devices. However, even though this impression is not as accurate as the flagship device, it is fun and fun to play.
After selecting an 8-megapixel camera on the back, there is little to gain for self-interest fans. A7 (2018) with 24MP front camera! There are affinity / 2.0 lenses and many photographic options, including petrol and beauty, beauty, lighting ("magic look and feel"), AR emoji and extensive self-cognition, which is basically panorama mode. front camera.
This does not look like the 8MP sensor and the random barrel distortion in a wide angle camera violates the camera experience. In general, the A7 (2018) makes the software stronger based on many interesting fantasies.

Pricing and recent thoughts
In general, the Samsung Galaxy A7 (2018) is better than the medium-sized device. It's a great Super AMOLED screen and a three-dimensional camera. Battery life is good, it has a headphone jack! Two-core GPU players can be alarmed, but if you're a Candy Crush, you have nothing to do.
If A7 (2018) does not seduce you, most other middle-aggregate phones have a chipset and a good camera, including the Xiaomi Mi A2, Nokia 7.1 Plus, Honor Play, Asus Zenfone 5Z, Moto G6 Plus, or certainly the Pocophone F1.
The Samsung Galaxy A7 (2018) is available in 279 euros (~ 317 dollars) in blue, black and gold in Europe and 249 pounds in the UK ($ 315). These prices are based on various seasonal discounts. This is not official in the US, but you can find it on Amazon!
