You or evolve or degrade. Samsung chose the first path and showed an updated line of smartphones Galaxy A – 2017. Traditionally it has three models: the Galaxy A3, Galaxy A5 and Galaxy A7.
And they all, representing the middle class, encouraging flagship design Galaxy S7 with a 2.5 D glass on the front panel and rounded 3D glass on the back.
In addition, new products, and they can be purchased in black, gold, pink and blue colors, got protected by the enclosure with IP68 standard and the function is always active display.
Today we will examine the model carefully. They are destined to become a bestseller.
Its first smartphone Galaxy A manufacturer showed two years ago. It was, to put it mildly, unexpected: outside of its usual release cycles. Although many Korean manufacturers is a common practice enabling them so it is not tricky to run into people of a pen test. They say, do not go – do not go.
A year later the company announced a line of Galaxy A, which has introduced three gadgets: the A3, A5 and A7. They lined up and clear, after it was adopted by the users, a range of mid-range smartphones. She was making it clear in the segment middle. Because at that moment there was utter chaos, unlike the flagship niche with Samsung Galaxy S Edge, Note and the like.
The principle of creating models of Galaxy A is as follows: take the solution of the flagship smartphones of the previous season, add something of their own flavor, while remaining in the medium price segment.
So, last year – in 2015 – against the total dominance of plastic in Galaxy A smartphones introduced metal.
Last year, the novelty is equipped with fast charging mode and a fingerprint scanner, so familiar in the top segment. It is a modern and reliable method of user identification: each print is unique and sold three-month old fetus.
Updated lineup 2017, including models Samsung Galaxy A3, A5 and A7, as usual, took for the base hardware stuffing flagship previous season, the Galaxy S7. And design patterns is also part of it.
We embrace the dust and moisture protection (IP68 standard), as well as support of two SIM cards and memory cards microSD. However, the model was deprived of this. It is worth saying that the hybrid slot, forced to choose between the two, have already fairly podnadoest.
There are new products and support service, Samsung Pay, which allows you to pay with your smartphone.
Visually, the Galaxy A3, A5 and A7 – that somewhere between S7 and J5: front panel is glass like the front, edge – rolling, that is 3D, as is now fashionable to say, but the design of the camera resembles the model J5 Prime.
In General, the new items look great, but nothing radically new in them.
The most compact smartphone is the 4.7-inch Galaxy A3 – 135,4 x 66,2 x 7.9 mm and weighs 135 grams.
With a large 5.7 – inch Galaxy A7 smartphone (156,8 x 77,6 x 7.9 mm). It’s already a full-fledged phablet, or “spade”, as people call names.
As for colours, the range is decent: black, Golden, blue and pink models.
In all three models is economical SuperAMOLED-matrix. Its diagonal Galaxy A3 reaches 4.7 inches with HD resolution, the Galaxy A5 – 5.2 inches, but with Full HD quality, as in 5.7-inch smartphone A7. Obviously, the manufacturer decided that for the modern consumer of media content of 5.5 inches is not enough. So fans of plantational get A7 classic – “leptophlebia”.
The minimum and maximum brightness no complaints. Screen good to read in the dark (the brightness level min), and in bright sunlight at maximum rate. And brightness depending on external light and the displayed image changes dynamically.
If you choose a major and get an almost perfect calibration, which is close to the IPS technology (which is plus).
In “Adaptive” mode the colors are more saturated. He adapts the picture. There is a separate adjustment of the color components, allowing to customize the image and play with the white balance.
Also there is a setting to minimize blue: when reading the user’s eyes are not too tired.
Viewing angles are wide (only under the most acute appears purple-green sheen that is characteristic of technology Super AMOLED), brightness is sufficient, and the automatic adjustment works fine.
While working-on display is configurable. Compensate for the lack of the usual indicator, missed event notification icons.
Less RAM and internal memory in Galaxy A3 – 2 GB and 16 GB respectively. Still expanding with the help of microSD at the expense of dvuhtonnoy.
Frankly, 2017, the minimum RAM should be at least 3 GB and ROM is 32 GB. The fact that apps have become heavier, they require more space. Therefore, manufacturers must always consider this fact, to stay on top.
And the Samsung Galaxy A5 (2017), as in the Galaxy A7, this is the minimum necessary-2017 – 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of internal memory. There is support for microSD cards up to 256 GB.
The modules support Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, Bluetooth 4.2, GPS / A-GPS with GLONASS/ BDS, NFC (MST), which makes possible the use of smartphones for contactless payments, and work with Samsung Pay (we have the service is not running).
In the new shell has changed the settings menu and roller blind switches with notifications. Also was updated the design of embedded applications. A multi mode and is supported by many skins. Especially please feature Always On Display.
Manufacturer, orienting new items for young people, have relied not only on design but also on the camera. At least for the cameras the A5 and A7. And high-aperture optics f/1,9 is not the only thing. The primary and secondary modules have 16 MP.
The photos are excellent: detailed and sharp. The autofocus is quite fast. However, when shooting it is important to hold fast to the smartphone, as due to trembling hands the footage without the stabilizer may be smeared. But in models 2016 optical stabilization was.
The camera app has a simple interface. To switch between shooting modes and menu selection color filters can swipe. In the camera settings select the floating button. There are eight photo filters and a selfie.
PRO mode allows the configuration of white balance, light sensitivity, and not only. It is a pity that there is no way to control the focus and exposure. With macro problems should not be, at least in the gadgets and want to see the full manual mode. Conveniently, the camera is easy to launch by double pressing the mechanical Home button.
Among frontalot chambers A5 and A7 is particularly good. And they can be safely used as a primary.
You can adjust the oval face, skin tone and eye size. Not without function, panoramic (group) selfie.
Junior camera the updated line – A3 – though not worth considering as a serious camera (it cameras on 13 and 8 MP, respectively), it is still good. And the pictures with it it only confirms.
Battery and autonomy
The Junior model Samsung Galaxy A3 has a non-removable the battery capacity 2350 mAh. With an average load the gadget is able to hold out a couple of days. This is facilitated by the use of Exynos Octa 7870 and Super AMOLED screen. In the PCMark test model lived for almost ten hours. And this is a good result.
The average model, the Galaxy A5 has the battery on 3000 mAh. Compared to fellow capacity has increased slightly by 100 mAh. However, modern process technology has realized a noticeable improvement in autonomy.
Firstly, Samsung is A brand, i.e. the brand of the first echelon, the same, which are equal to which specifies the movement of the whole dehnamaki. In General, one of the most.
Second, in A3, A5 and A7 2017, the year a lot of the flagship, pull-up these cute peasant TOP segment.
For example, design. It is gorgeous. And the glass on both sides is cool. Especially status look A5 and A7. And though some users will consider A model of the last generation, prettier, but most like the redesign, similar to Galaxy S7.
And protection standard IP68 water and dust welcome, especially in the case cheap Galaxy A3. It is a pity that the Junior model slot for SIM cards and memory card hybrid, unlike the older models of the Galaxy A5 and Galaxy A7, which do not require to choose “either/or”.
Galaxy A3 is also deprived of the fast charge. Apparently decided that the battery in the smartphone modest capacity and that is not required. But it should be said that the autonomy of the gadget will not disappoint.
As for the technical specs of the devices that they are worthy. The majority of modern smartphones with the most strong toys and almost all tasks.
Users looking for a compact device for connection, affordable price, definitely choose the 4.7-inch model of Samsung Galaxy A3 (2017). But someone who wants something bigger and more advanced, perhaps, is the 5.2-inch Galaxy A5 (2017) or 5.7-inch “lophopodomyia” phablet Galaxy A7 (2017).
The choice of colors is decent. For conservatives, there is a black option, there are Golden, which is already, perhaps, too classic, and for those who like something brighter and more interesting pink and blue.
