The triple-lens set up of the Galaxy A7 produces daylight images with a good amount of detail with saturated colors and decent contrast. The wide angle is noticeably less detailed than the main camera but the creative applications and convenience of the wide out weigh the cons. So far.


What I noticed right away is that the exposure and colors are different when taken from the standard camera compared to the wide camera when shot at the same position and at the same focus/exposure point. This could be the auto white balance. 

In some instances the wide angle lens produces noticeably better color saturation than the main camera.

The 24MP selfie camera on the other hand doesn't have issues! It takes sharp photos with good color and contrast. The white balance gets it right most of the time. The lowlight noise reduction doesn't soften the images too much as well

We have to do more testing but so far we are like the selfie camera and we are liking the main triple rear cameras for day light.

The Samsung Galaxy A7 (2018) is priced at just PHP 17,990 and will be available nationwide on October 27!
