Samsung releases all-metal 5.5-Inch Galaxy A7 with octa-core processor Samsung has unveiled a sleek new all-metal octa-core processor powered smartphone: the Galaxy A7.
The device features a 5.5-inch display, a 64-bit Qualcomm Snapdragon chip (dual 1.8GHz and 1.3GHz quad-core processors or 1.5GHz and 1.0GHz in the dual-SIM model), 2GB RAM, at least 16GB internal storage and Android 4.4 KitKat.

For heavy camera users, the smartphone has a 13MP standard camera and a 5MP front-facing camera. Samsung has added some software tweaks, as well, allowing you to take "wide selfies" and "auto selfies" using "a voice command or even a simple wave of the hand."

In addition, Samsung has added a new private mode that "adds an extra layer of security for important files and documents" and multi-screen support for apps.

The device is also notable for its design, which is metal. Samsung's devices to date have mainly been plastic with faux leather, which can feel cheap when compared to the iPhone and other high-end devices.

Low-spec, Iphone-looking P.O.S. from a company that mills out phones as if they didn't put any thought into them.

Am I supposed to be impressed by this??? Body is nice improvement none-the-less............at least a step in the right direction.

I agree ,I swear these guys just push out way to much phones, and TW is garbage that bogs down the system. I don't understand why they just don't intergate their features into the Pure android OS instead of layering TW over it.

i couldn't agree more!!!

The only phone i would ever consider getting is a nexus. They are blazing fast and smooth, may not have some silly features samsung offers but at the end of the day who really wants to wave a hand at there screen to take a pic, when you can just press the vol. + button lol, i am still using my nexus 4 with 5.0.1 and it is still fast.


MOMO
