Samsung Galaxy A7


This phone is great value for money. You still get great build quality and as a power user the specs hold up. The battery lasts me a day the power of the phone is enough for day to day used. This obviously is not a S series phone. But for what it is it is amazing. (Also holds up with the new phones in the looks department.) Totally love it.
