It can often be interesting to see how different smartphones from the same manufacturer stack up against each other. Samsung’s Galaxy Note 5 released in August last year and will be followed by the Galaxy Note 6 later this year. Meanwhile the Samsung Galaxy A7 2nd gen launched in December in China and has released to further markets. Today we’re sharing a look at the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 vs Galaxy A7 (2016).
Some key specs of the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 are an Exynos 7420 octa-core processor (four cores at 2.1GHz and four at 1.5GHz), and a 5.7-inch Super AMOLED display with Quad HD resolution of 2560 x 1440. It has 4GB of RAM, a 16-megapixel rear camera, and 3000 mAh battery. The phablet released running Android 5.1.1 Lollipop and will be upgraded to Android 6.0 Marshmallow at some point.
Meanwhile the more recent Samsung Galaxy A7 2016 has a Snapdragon 615 octa-core processor (four cores at 1.5GHz and four at 1.2GHz) or a 1.6GHz Exynos 7580 octa-core processor (models vary). It has a 5.5-inch Super AMOLED display with Full HD resolution of 1920 x 1080. It has 3GB of RAM, a 13-megapixel rear camera, and 3300 mAh battery, and also released running Android 5.1.1.
Both of these Samsung Galaxy phones feature a fingerprint scanner, but the Note 5 also features S Pen stylus use, wireless charging, heart rate sensor, and more. The specifications of the A7 (2016) are not so high-end as the Galaxy Note 5, but it’s worth noting that the A7 has a premium metal and glass build.
