  • Good for everyday use, if you don't use the camera

    Very slippery phone, I need to use with case.
    Camera noise reduction is terrible, too stong even on good light condition. Detailless smooth surface on a picture. With HDR off a little better. Battery last long if you don't use the phone (2+ day), with 2-3 hour browsing, chatting last a day. App installing speed is 2-3 times slower than my previus phone(Lenovo P2), idk why. This is my first phone that I want to get rid of after few months.

  • Budget phone, flagship features

    Who needs a flagship phone with many cameras if you can have this, unless you're really needs super-fast phone for super-demanding apps and 3D mobile games, most people who buy flagship phone just for style and pride, average user are just using their phone mainly for social media and communication such as WhatsApp, Line, or BBM (if anyone still use that).

    The only bad thing about this phone is not IP 67 waterproof / dustproof certification, come on Samsung, A7 2017 model have that, why 2018 model doesn't ? USB Mini B ? even cheaper phone from ASUS, Xiaomi, and Huawei already use USB C as their standard.

    There are better options for the same price or you

    I do not understand such a good rating, it is a very basic terminal to be worth what it is worth (luckily I do not spend money on it), if it cost less than 200 euros it would seem fine, but the software is poorly optimized and that recently updated to Android Pie (above when they are already updating others to Android 10), I have tried a redmi note 7, and a Huawei p smart, and there is no color worth more or less the same but the worst of the 3 is the A7, worse cameras , worse system, in game there is no problem, at least the ones I tried, the fingerprint sensor fails a lot, the front is a horror, devices from years ago already had less Mark than this, in short, and being only my opinion I think that for what it is worth, it is better to buy those of the competition, they are better and the same price.

    Totally recommended, but watch out for the screen

    It is an excellent team, with characteristics of a high range, despite being a medium-high range, very fluid in terms of performance and above all the cameras of excellent quality and sharpness. What I recommend that yes to every user is to buy a tempered glass sheet, since it does not resist shocks very well, and a housing to avoid dents, of excellent rest

    at first very bad and then ... excellent

    at the beginning installing some heavy game or app like tik tok the battery was very bad just getting to last 10 hours when 1 day before installing it lasted 1 day and 15 hours I contacted samsung they told me it was a problem of the operating system so, I reset the device after the updates arrived (the last one a month ago), this improvement markedly improved by using it for 1 day and 15 hours, using it for 2 days 10 hours and using it only with social networks 2 days 21 hours is what lasts for me, it loads an hour and a half, I was never branded and it was always fluid I must have more than 50 apps

What is a Ki score?
Ki is an automatic score based on the specifications and prices of devices. It is calculated using over 200 variables to rank smartphones, tablets and other devices from best to worst.
How do we calculate the Ki?

In this case, to determine the score we evaluate 5 general aspects:

  • Design and screen
  • Hardware and performance
  • Camera
  • Connectivity
  • Battery

Once these 5 factors have been rated, we introduce the price variable. This means that any two devices with the same ratings get a different Ki score for quality vs price.

Even a device objectively worse than another may have a higher Ki score if it has a better price.

Does the Ki score change?

The Ki varies as time goes by. As new devices with better specifications enter the market the Ki score of older devices will go down, always being compensated of their decrease in price.
