Samsung is one of the few smartphone makers with a wide presence across all price segments. It has multiple devices aimed at different audiences, a strategy that has helped it hang on to the number one spot in India despite ferocious competition.
The C series, one of Samsung's many different product lines, has been updated with potent new models. The Galaxy C7 Pro is priced in a segment dominated by OnePlus with the OnePlus 3 (Review) and OnePlus 3T (Review). Even Motorola has the somewhat similarly specced Moto Z Play (Review) at a lower price. Can the Samsung Galaxy C7 Pro put up a fight? We put it to the test.
We have to admit, the Samsung Galaxy C7 Pro is a good-looking device. Samsung has got the design and build quality spot on. The phone is available in gold colour but we prefer the navy blue finish of our review unit. We wish Samsung offered a black option, which would have gone well with the black front panel. You are reminded of the aluminium unibody when you pick this phone up in an air-conditioned room. The body is just 7mm thick and is comfortable to hold thanks to the curved sides and edges.
The glass on the front of the Samsung Galaxy C7 Pro has rounded edges. The front camera, earpiece, proximity sensor and hidden notification LED are arranged in a line, with Samsung branding below them. The metal mesh on the earpiece and the accent surrounding the home button are finished in the same colour as the back panel, which looks neat. The physical home button houses the fingerprint sensor and has backlit capacitive buttons on either side.
The volume buttons are positioned on the left and the power button is on the right, with the hybrid dual-SIM tray below it. You can use two Nano-SIMs or use the second slot to extend storage with a microSD card. The tray has little tabs that hold SIMs in place securely, which is appreciated.
Samsung has opted for antenna lines that run across the top and bottom of the phone's rear. They sit flush with the metal just like the ones on the Samsung Galaxy C9 Pro (Review) and the Oppo F3 Plus (Review). The primary camera and the dual-tone LED flash are in the center. The camera protrudes slightly and has a metal surround which should help prevent scratches. The Samsung branding at the back has a reflective finish which shines when light bounces off the matte back panel.
The Samsung Galaxy C7 Pro has a USB Type-C port, loudspeaker, microphone and 3.5 mm audio socket at the bottom, and a secondary microphone at the top. Samsung provides a Micro-USB to Type-C adapter in the box so that you can work with your existing accessories. The phone tips the scales at 172g and feels just about right in the hand. We must add that it is a little slippery to hold, and the entire screen cannot be used with one hand.Read More...
