Samsung Galaxy A7 2017 reviews

Galaxy A7 Duos (2017) SM-A720F/DS 32GB Smartphone (Unlocked, Black) is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Mid-range phone -The phone's battery is excellent. I charge my phone every 3-4 days. I don't play games. Just regular things like social media, browsing, and videos. I can get 8-9 hours out of the battery from one charge.� -It is true that the phone don't have optical image stabilization. It just means you have to be still and wait 2-3 seconds for the camera to focus. If you do that, you will take fine pictures. -Updates..... The phone comes with Andriod 6.0. If you do the Nougat 7.0 andriod�update, you phone will ONLY charge up to 98%. only 2 percent loss, your decision. I heard that you can fix that by recalibrating the battery. -Overall, a great phone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent phone overall Good size, clear and bright screen, decent performance, excellent battery life, fingerprint sensor works pretty well, dual SIM is appreciated, microSD slot works even with both SIMs inserted (despite what some reviews say). Only compromise is the camera missing the optical image stabilizer (OIS), but still makes good pictures. Overall very happy with this phone, feels like a flagship product at half the price. Excellent service from B&H.
