Samsung have updated their A-series of phones for 2017 and they are looking good. New models of the A3, A5 and A7 have all been given a revamp borrowing some of the new features from the flagship S7. Although Samsung have announced it will be bringing them out this year, they have yet to confirm a release date for the UK or give an idea of pricing as of yet. Improvements have been made to the cameras, storage and display and they will also now all come with waterproofing which should please a lot of people.
So which phone is better you ask? It really depends on what you want from a phone to be perfectly honest. Some people prefer to have a smaller and more basic phone yet others might prefer a larger screen or a better battery life. What we need and expect from a phone is a totally personal choice to fit our needs and expectations. As with previous versions of the A Series, the main differences between the three phones are the screen size, battery capacity and processing power.
The A3 is the smallest and less powerful of the three devices with a smaller screen (4.7inch HD), smaller processor (1.6GHz octa-core), 2GB RAM, a smaller battery and only 16GB storage.
The A7 is the opposite end of the scale and boasts the largest of the three screens (5.7inch HD), a larger processor (1.9GHz octa-core), 3GB RAM, a larger battery and 32GB storage.
The A5 is in a blend of the two other devices with a medium sized screen (5.2inch HD), and a medium sized battery but will have most of the A7 specs internally.
All three devices will come in the familiar metal frame with glass screens and back plate giving all three of them a fresh new look. The colours that will be available are Black Sky, Peach Cloud, Blue Mist and Gold Sand.
