A few weeks ago we reviewed the Samsung Galaxy C9 Pro, which was quite impressive to say the least. Today we have in our hands its younger sibling (or so it would seem), the Galaxy C7 Pro, which was launched recently to an overwhelmingly positive response by the audience. With a price tag of INR 27,990 it competes directly with mid-range devices which fall under the 30K bracket.

The Galaxy C7 Pro has a sleek body with a metal unibody design, making it one of the most premium phones in the market. It has a 5.7-inch display which fits comfortably in the hands, though it is a bit on the slippery side if you use it without a cover. The bottom side of the phone houses a USB Type-C port, a 3.5mm audio port and the speakers, along with the mic. The power button and the volume keys are provided on the right and the left sides of the phone respectively. Right next to the power button, you can find the SIM/Micro SD card tray, and this is where things begin to get interesting. While the phone offers dual SIM capability, the second SIM replaces the Micro SD card on the tray, meaning you can either have two SIM cards at a time, or a single SIM card and an SD card. This might be a cause for concern for people who heavily rely on dual SIM usage, but it’s definitely not a deal breaker, considering that the phone’s internal storage is 64GB.
At its heart, the C7 Pro is powered by a 2.2 GHz octa-core processor with the Snapdragon 626 chipset. Coupled with a 4GB RAM, it makes the phone quite powerful and able to handle heavy applications with ease. It runs on the Android 6.0 Marshmallow OS, though an update to 7.0 is expected soon. The screen is modest 5.7-inch and houses a Full HD super AMOLED display. Watching movies in native 1080p resolution is an exhilarating experience, and the phone’s vibrant and colorful display makes it only more satisfying. The brightness is quite high as well, meaning you can easily use it outdoors in broad daylight without much hassle.
This phone comes with a solid 16MP camera with an f/1.9 aperture. Though the camera isn’t the best thing about the C7 Pro, it’s capable of capturing great detail in well-lit environments, and even in low light conditions it takes decent pictures. The front camera is 16MP as well, meaning your selfies will never look dull. At this price range, it is probably one of the best front cameras you can get. The primary camera allows you to take Full HD 1080p videos, making sure you never have to sacrifice on video quality.
The tech specs of the C7 Pro make it a powerful phone, which is always a good thing if you like to play games on your phone. It offers smooth, hassle-free 30 FPS gameplay, be it a graphic intensive action packed title like Modern Combat or N.O.V.A, or a beautiful racing game like Asphalt 8. The expandable storage (upto 256 GB) means that you’ll always have space to store your music, pictures and games. Add to that the fact that the phone’s 3300 mAh battery that can easily last more than a day under normal usage (with Always On display enabled), and you’re set for all your smartphone needs. Also, the C7 Pro supports fast charging, which means you can charge the battery fully in less than 2 hours.
The Samsung Galaxy C7 Pro is a neat, slim device which packs a mean powerful core. It is perhaps one of the most premium phones you can find at the price of INR 27,990, both in terms of looks and features. For anyone on the lookout for a lean, mean, phoning machine, this is an amazing choice.
