Samsung kicks off CES fever with the announcement of the 2017 Galaxy A3, A5 and A7

Gotta love CES season.  I'm reading all about my other fellow bloggers who are gearing up for their 'trek to tech-mecca' (i.e. CES) and everybody's talking about what they hope to see, or what they've been playing with under wraps for a while.  It's so much fun.  It's like a second Christmas... sorta.


Anyways, Samsung always loves to be the centre of attention (and they could use some good press right about now) and put everybody into the full tech mood by taking the wraps off of their latest line up of phones, the 2017 A series.  Which I will call the A-Team (no affiliation... please don't sue!)

There's 3 phones, the A3, the A5 and the A7 (all primes!)

So, let's start with the flagship, the A7
