Samsung Galaxy A7 2017 vs. Galaxy S7 and S7 edge

Galaxy A7 2017 vs. Galaxy S7 and S7 edge: what’s the difference?

Samsung’s latest efforts to wow the masses are slowly starting to pay-off. The A-series have brought a lot of muscle to the party particularly when it comes to Samsung Galaxy A7 2017. So how does this smartphone perform against Samsung’s baddest of the lot?

This comparison isn’t absurd as the A7 2017 has brought a nice set of features with itself. That being said, the Galaxy S7 takes something more than the A-team’s crowning jewel to beat that. Let’s see where the comparison takes us!

Build quality that ceases to amaze

Well there were no surprises saying that as Samsung’s flagships have always featured excellent build quality and materials. All three of these smartphones feature an all glass design with Corning Gorilla Glass protection for both the front and back panels. A chic metal frame, as always, takes its place between the two panels and you’ll also get dust/waterproofing with all of these bad-boys.

Dimensions wise, the A7 2017 features a 7.9mm width while weighing somewhere in between 150-170g. The S7 features an identical width to the A7 albeit weighing in at 152g. The S7 Edge, however, is a little slimmer than the aforementioned devices. It features a 7.7mm width while weighing in at 157g.

Some of the best displays out there in the market

The A7 2017 features a large 5.7 inches Super AMOLED capacitive touchscreen with 386ppi pixel density. Equating to a resounding 1080p HD resolution, one has to wonder what an excellent pair a 5.7 inches display and 1080p resolution makes. Corning Gorilla Glass further adds gloss to an already meaty display.

The S7 Edge on the other hand features one of Samsung’s best ever displays; we’re speaking a 5.5 inches Super AMOLED capacitive curved-edge touchscreen with 534ppi pixel density. Its little twin, the Galaxy S7, features a smaller 5.1 inches Super AMOLED display swarmed by 577ppi pixel density. Both of these boys have Corning Gorilla Glass 4 protection and 1440p HD resolution in store for you which is significantly more detailed than the A7 2017. However, the A7 holds the edge when it comes to a larger display size.

Triple-threat camera sensors

Our praises for Samsung’s camera prowess will simply not stop. They’ve always delivered and there’s no way the A7 2017 seems like it’ll put a full-stop to that.

The A7 2017 features the largest camera sensors of all these three devices by popping up with not one but two 16 megapixel camera sensors. Not quite dual-camera lenses though, the 16 megapixels are designated for the primary and secondary camera sensors which lets you capture high-quality images.

Coming to the S7 and S7 Edge, both the smartphones feature a 12 dual-pixel primary camera sensor with features that include phase-detection autofocus and OIS. The secondary camera seems under-powered at 5 megapixels but it’s quite a handful and the primary sensor was lauded as equally capable for both day and nigh-time snapping.

A cheetah vs another cheetah vs yet another cheetah!

The Samsung Galaxy A7 2017 powered by a 1.9 GHz Octa-Core Cortex processor has 3 gigs of additive RAM. That’s more than enough to smoothly run the built-in Android Marshmallow and it’s other spectacular features include a 32GB internal storage, fingerprint scanner, USB type-C, fast charging and a hunky 3600 mAh battery with plenty of juice!

The S7 and S7 Edge are powered by a hybrid Octa-Core processor with 4GB of RAM. Coming with Android Marshmallow and upgradable to Nougat, these smartphones pack quite some power. While a fingerprint scanner, micro-USB, fast charging, and 3000 mAh plus 3600 mAh batteries for the Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge respectively rounding-off a pretty fierce competition between these three Samsung giants.
