  • What are the pros and cons of the Samsung Galaxy A7?

    A

    Answered By Abhinav Nagpal | 1 months ago

    One of the biggest disadvantages of Galaxy A7 is that it is not one of the latest phones in the market. There are various other phones in the market which can be bought at a similar price range. Some of the other cons of Galaxy A7 is that it doesn't have a fingerprint sensor, neither it comes with the latest android nor it has a good camera. The only advantage of this phone is that it comes with Super AMOLED display.
