#6: Powering You Through The Day

Family visits are part of the CNY trend.

Fret not because the Samsung Galaxy A Series (2017) comes with bigger batteries and supports fast charging! Just plug in your device to a power source and be amazed at how quickly your battery power restores just so that the device can keep you company throughout the day. The Galaxy A7 (2017) comes with 3,600mAh while the Galaxy A5 (2017) comes with 3,000mAh battery capacity.
