On the design front, the Galaxy C7 Pro gives an appealing look. This is slim device having thickness of 7mm and weight of 172 grams.

Equipping good hardware and makes them churn out superb performance is forte of Samsung and this is the reason that Samsung phones are known for appreciable performance and Galaxy C7 Pro also fits well in Samsung’s highest standard of excellence. It comes with 4GB RAM and 64GB of Internal Storage which can be extended up to 256GB via micro SD card. With the large RAM capacity and storage expansion of upto 256GB, you get superb experience of switching between the apps, multi-tasking, gaming and any conceivable work you want to perform on this phone. I have played various games on this phone and never experienced any lag or faced any issue of heating which is the bane of many phones in this segment. Even if you play games at a stretch of one hour or so, its processor remains normal.
The 5.7 inch (1920×1080 pixels) Full HD Super AMOLED display of this phone gives you an excellent viewing experience. Samsung’s AMOLED display has unparelled viewing experience in this segment and it is always a treat to watch media content on this display and gaming becomes more interesing and enjoyable on it. Sunlight visibilty is very good and it produces vibrant colors and crisp text which results in less strain on your eyes.
Of late, their is lot of hue and cry about selfie cameras in smartphones. No doubt, selfies is a craze especially among the youngsters. Samsung has taken care of this need and mounted 16MP front camera with f/1.9 aperture. You can capture selfies also by holding your palm in front of the camera. This front camera produces sharp and true to life images. The primary camera also has 16MP sensor and comes with dual-tone LED flash and f/1.9 aperture. The images clicked with this camera has enough depth of field, contrast and produces razor sharp results which only high-end smartphone camera is normally capable of. Some of the photos captured with this camera are reproduced below:
The fingerprint sensor on this phone is embedded on the home button in the front. Fingerprint sensor is very easy to set-up and it senses your registered finger in split second to unlock the phone. Despite my repeated usage of fingerprint sensor to test its performance, its accuracy has been 100%.
You do not want to carry a phone and powerbank alongwith it. Samsung is aware of this and has put 3300mAh battery in C7 Pro which has fast charging feature. This phone also has USB C-Type port and the battery can be charged from 0 to 100% in approximately 80 minutes. You are not required to charge it frequently as it is good enough to last for full day even if you are heavy users.
This phone has all the connectivity options such as 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi 802.11ac, Bluetooth 4.2, GPS and NFC etc. Call quality of this phone is excellent and I have tried this phone on Airtel 4G in Delhi. This phone also incorporates Accelerometer, Gyro Sensor, Geomagnetic Sensor, Proximity Sensor and RGB Light Sensor. Besides this, audio output on this phone is also very good and you can enjoy your favourte music in full volume without any distortion in the sound.
This phone has Hybrid Dual SIM slots and runs Android 6.0.1 (Marshmallow) with Samsung’s own Touchwiz layer on it. Of late, Samsung has made its customisation very simple and easy to handle.
To sum up, Samsung has nicely packaged Galaxy C7 Pro. You can call it good selfie phone with powerful battery. Its performance is top-notch, display will give you wonderful experience while viewing multi-media or playing games. And you can flaunt this phone as it has pleasing appearance.
