I thing is prefect
By Erset Dani | 16 Oct 2017 | 16 Oct 2017
This phone is 90% perfect cuz nothing is not perfect.. The camera in outdors is awesome really good. And about the selfie is very good when you are nearly about 30 cm from the with blury when you are with 4 or more friends and this is for me only bad thing for this phone. According to the performance is really good with the nougat update is really awesome cuz has 8.1 experience who mis in the s7 or s7 edge and is faster than marshmallow...has faster fingerprint than any samsung phone before. For me is really awesome phone .

Gorilla glass broken in first time fell down. There gorilla glass is scratch proof. Not unbreakable. Fooling people. Bad
By Hemanth Suvarna | 27 May 2017 | 27 May 2017
I purchased Samsung A7 2017 mobile in the month of April. Sales man told me it's a gorilla glass. I like gorilla glass because it's unbreakable. So I was thinking that it's unbreakable. So that I didn't use protection for that. After 1 month it fell down by my hands & broken the glass. So I went to the Samsung gallery. They told me that gorilla glass is scratch proof not unbreakable & there is no warranty on glass.I was shocked.they ask me to pay 13000 Rs to repair it. So please don't buy this mobile. It's not a gorilla glass it's a normal glass. They are fooling the people.
