What are Usage Reviews, Tests and Opinions?

This review is based on our quick tests and usage done with the phone, we try to push the device to its limits and find out the results which will matter if you plan to buy this phone. We hope this review helps you to get your queries answered about the device.


The Samsung Galaxy A7 2016 is powered by an octa-core Exynos processor, coupled with 3GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage. The device performs well, with just a few minor lags and stutters that we have come to expect from all Samsung devices these days. The phone packs a good hardware combination, but sometimes just fails to perform because of the underlying operating system that is running on the phone.

App Launch Speed

The app launch speed on the Galaxy A7 2016 was good, but I think that it could have been better. Sometimes, randomly while launching an app, there would be a minor lag of a few milliseconds before the application would actually open.

Multitasking and RAM Management

The Samsung Galaxy A7 2016 is packed with 3GB of RAM out of the box, and on boot, you get around 1.7GB of RAM free. As far as the RAM management is considered, the phone is able to manage the applications in the background most of the times. Only a few times I saw minor lags when switching between open apps, even between the apps that were recently used.

Scrolling Speed

To test the scrolling speed of the browser, I opened up the GadgetsToUse homepage on the Chrome web browser as well as the Samsung Internet Browser, and in both the browsers, it was able to scroll on the page with ease. The rendering of the images on the page was also really quick.


In day to day usage, I did not feel the smartphone heat as such. Only when gaming for a longer period of time, I noticed the phone’s rim heat up. Even then, it did not become uncomfortable to hold in the hand.
