Unlike previous years, where three size options were available, Samsung Singapore has cut down to just two for 2017: the 5.7-inch A7 and the 5.2-inch A5. The 4.7-inch A3 model will not be available in Singapore.

Samsung Galaxy A7 (2017) Initial Review: The A Series Goes Water Resistant
Source: Unbox English
That pretty much does it for our initial review of the Samsung Galaxy A7 (2017), which retails for Php 23,990. It’s smaller sibling, the Samsung Galaxy A5 (2017), which pretty much has the same specs except for a smaller display at 5.2-inches retails for Php 19,990.

ARM Mali-T830 MP3: ntegrated graphics card for smartphones and tablets with three clusters (MP3) supporting OpenGL ES 3.2. Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.

This display is quite big for a smartphone but frequently used for smartphones.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

Only few smartphones are more lightweight than this.

Samsung: The Samsung Group is composed of numerous international businesses, all united under the Samsung brand in South Korea. The meaning of the Korean word Samsung is "tristar" or "three stars". The Samsung brand is one of the most important brands of South Korea. Samsung is an international notebook manufacturer of medium size according market shares and reviews.

In 2015 and 2016, Samsung had a market share of around 24-25% in the global smartphone market and was undisputed market leader. In the laptop sector, Samsung is on the 8th place in the global manufacturer rankings from 2014-2016 with 1.7-2.7%.

In 2016 Samsung slipped into a crisis due to exploding smartphone batteries and a failed recall action.

78%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
