You get one of the best screens on a phone at this price, a side mounted fingerprint scanner and a versatile set of cameras with generally decent performance. However, there are some downsides that mean you should also consider some rivals like the Moto G7 Plus and Honor Play. Performance isn't amaz...

It has a great Super AMOLED screen and an intriguing triple camera setup. The battery life is good and it has a headphone jack! The dual-core GPU could potentially be worrisome to gamers, but if you are more of Candy Crush kind of person, you have nothing to worry about.

You get one of the best screens on a phone at this price, a side mounted fingerprint scanner and a versatile set of cameras with generally decent performance. However, there are some downsides that mean you should also consider some rivals like the Moto G7 Plus and Honor Play. Performance isn't amazing, it's got a Micro-USB port and mediocre battery life.

Triple rear cameras at an affordable price

If you’re looking for a budget device with gorgeous display, it’s hard to go wrong with the A7. Software is still something of a mixed bag compared to stock Android, and it would have been nice to see support for USB-C or wireless charging, but the triple-lens camera and respectable price point make it hard to turn down.

Unstable midrange potential

from TechENT

The A7 was let down by poorly optmised software but that’s something Samsung can fix with an update. With a package as powerful as the A7, the device should have been a home run but it fell short of third base. That said, it is a step in the right direction if Samsung is looking to differentiate their mid-range lineup.

It's clear that the Galaxy A7 (2018) is made for users with different needs, particularly those who love going to the outdoors and taking landscape photography with the ultra wide-angle lens. The side-mounted fingerprint scanner is a bonus and entertainment for both games and video playback is fairly good as well. Not to mention, the design is very well done and this will surely attract young people.

A better than average mid-range device

from Android Authority

It has a great Super AMOLED screen and an intriguing triple camera setup. The battery life is good and it has a headphone jack! The dual-core GPU could potentially be worrisome to gamers, but if you are more of Candy Crush kind of person, you have nothing to worry about.

The Samsung Galaxy A7 is a phone of conspicuous techy parts and some half-hidden disappointments. A large, notch-free OLED screen is great for games and video, particularly late-night Netflix that shows off the great contrast. It doesn’t stinge on storage, the wide angle camera is fun to play with and the CPU has a couple of faster cores than the competition. However, the main camera’s images do not hold up as well as hoped under close scrutiny and the GPU is disappointing.

It certainly brings on board a whole lot of features borrowed from its flagships, but as far as the performance is considered and how well the features work, it doesn’t live up to the hype. What the phone offers is a choice to the user. While there are phones that can either take good photos using the primary sensor like the Nokia 7 Plus. Or it can take a good enough wide-angle shot, like the Asus Zenfone 5z. Or take good portraits like the Poco F1. The Samsung Galaxy A7 (2018) offers all three options and for the most part, manages to do it decently enough.

Covers practically every photographic need you'll have

from AndroidPIT

So is having three cameras necessarily better? No, since each of them is dedicated to one thing in particular. However, this setup will give you more options than any other mid-range mobile device.

If you’re just looking for a phone that you can use for browsing the web, emails, chatting, and photos, the A7 2018 is a model you should definitely consider. But if you think you discovered a gem that can replace a flagship, this isn’t the case. It looks like a premium model, but it’s nothing more than a mid-ranger that shows its limits every now and then.
