So let us have a quick look at its features:
Design and Look: Well! Samsung has stressed that the new generation Samsung Galaxy A7 is designed using glass and metal. It seems that the design is inherited from its Galaxy predecessor flagship Galaxy S6.

The rear part is incredibly good looking with its new glass look through which you can see the body color of the back. It has an elegant design with metal frames at the edges. Despite its glass rear and a screen size of 5.5,” it is quite comfortable to hold and doesn’t slip from hand easily.
