A phone’s camera is also one of the major selling points for those looking for a new phone. As most people engage in smartphone photography for social media, sometimes it’s the only thing some consumers look for in a phone.

Of all three, the Oppo F3 seems to be the most impressive in this aspect and could truly claim the title of a Selfie Camera. Similar to the Galaxy J7 Pro, it has a 13MP rear camera but its front camera has a staggering 16MP front camera. However, it lacks when it comes to settings.
The Galaxy A5 2016 also comes with a 13MP camera but has a relatively weaker 5MP front camera. However, the A5 2016 delivers when it comes to color reproduction and shooting in 1080p.

Finally, the Samsung Galaxy A5 2016 is equipped with an Octa Core Cortex-A53 processor with 2GB of RAM.
