Though we’re not aware of the prices, all the three metal-clad phones run on Android 5.1 Lollipop and have dual-SIM options.

Check out the brand new galaxy A7 that comes with a 5.5-inch full HD screen powered by 1080 x 1920 pixel resolution enhanced in performance by super AMOLED technology. The phone packs an octa-core SoC set at 1.6 GHz boosted by 3GB of RAM that determines the speed of your phone.

The device also features a 13 MP rear camera integrated with LED flash along with optical image stabilisation. It’s fun to take selfies with the phone’s 5 MP front facing camera. A 16 GB inbuilt storage space and 3,300 mAH fast charging battery are added attributes.

Galaxy fans will love to know the Galaxy A5 shares many similar features with the Galaxy A7, but with some minor changes. The former is packed with a 5.2-inch full-HD super AMOLED display, 2900 mAH, 2 GB of RAM, and much more.

Just like the Galaxy A7, the Galaxy A5 also features Samsung Pay’s fingerprint scanner; magnetic Secure Transmission and NFC payment Systems. You may prefer the A7 over the A5 on grounds of battery usability and strength.

The Galaxy A3 is the lightest and smallest smartphone among all the three handsets. It sports a 4.7-inch display screen powered by LTE cat4 network access; has a 1.5GHz quad-core processor and 1.5 GB of RAM. The phone’s equipped with 16 GB internal space expandable to 128 GB through use of a microSD card slot.
