The phone feels very good in the hand, as well as offering a very pleasant touch. Available in three colors, black, gold and pink, on the right side of the Samsung Galaxy A7 2018 we find the first surprise: next to the volume control keys is the position that the manufacturer has chosen to include the fingerprint sensor fingerprints

As for the hardware that mounts the Samsung Galaxy A7 of 2018 we find a quite powerful terminal. In this way, the Korean manufacturer has opted for one of its own solutions.

The terminal holds without a problem a whole day so in this regard we have nothing to criticize the manufacturer.

The truth is that the triple camera of the Samsung Galaxy A7 of 2018 does not stand out from its competitors in the premium medium range it is in, but it exceeds its expectations and, if we know how to take advantage of the different functions that the terminal, we can make very good photographs.
Special emphasis to the front camera of the Samsung Galaxy A7 of 2018. We have a 24 megapixel lens with LED flash that will meet well to make quality selfies.
