Samsung Galaxy A7 vs. OnePlus 2 – Similar Priced Smartphones with Different Expectations

Samsung Galaxy A7 , OnePlus 2, Samsung

Samsung is currently focusing on promoting its mid-range devices such as the Galaxy A9 one, which is definitely considered a flagship device in the mid-range category, but for now, users can’t enjoy this top device as it has not reached the US market. Currently, users can get their hands on the Galaxy A7, which retails for $370 ( at least on Amazon) and because the OnePus 2 is in the similar price range, that is $380, we can’t help but wonder which one is worth it?

These two might seem like peas in a pod as they both are 5.5-inch devices and 401 ppi and they also have a 13 MP back end snapper and a 5MP one, which is great for selfies. However, the OIS is only present in the OnePlus 2 gizmo. Both of them have 16 GB of internal memory, but the A7 does come with a card slot and its memory can be extended up to 64 GB while the OnePlus 2 does not. The fast charging feature is missing from both of these smartphones.

Samsung Galaxy A7 vs OnePlus 2: What sets them apart

The Galaxy A7 does have an AMOELD display, which is without a doubt way richer than the LCD one include in the OnePlus 2. And the former device also comes with Soc which means users can decide between the Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 with Adreno 405 GPU or Exynos 5 Octa 5430 with Mali-T628 MP6 GPU.

But even if the OnePlus 2 does not have the Soc option, it is equipped with a Snapdragon 810 with Adreno 430, which is quite fast despite the overheating snag. It has 16 GB of internal memory and 3GB of RAM and users also has the option of choosing the 64 GB version that is coupled with the 4 GB of RAM one. So, in a way this compensate for its lack of microSD card. As for the OS, the A7 has Android 4.4 KitKat on board while the OnePlus 2 will be updated with the Android 5.1 Lollipop.
