    About the Phone

    The midrange segment is perhaps one of the most difficult sections of the market to grab a foothold in. Flagship devices are ridiculously expensive for the common man, and budget devices just do not fulfil all the needs that a person may require from their handset. Therefore, it is up to the midrange devices to get the balance just right.

    The Samsung Galaxy C7 does that to quite an extent. Considering the phone is around 3 years old, it offers great power and style for what it costs. Sadly, newer models, even from Samsung themselves, have overshadowed the C7, one of them being the C7 pro. So, if value for money is what you want, then it might make more sense to go for the C7 pro instead of the older C7.

    Samsung’s C series of phones look to explore a bit more of the midrange device segment and is a very nice phone by all means. The specifications are solid, screen size is great at 5.7 inches, and the super AMOLED display, arguably a Samsung patent/trademark/USP, give the phone a complete-package feel.

    The device has a slim profile, which makes the camera bump appear a little more protruded. All in all, the phone is pretty decent in terms of design, specifications and feel, but with the C7 Pro now available for about INR 20000, the C7 is really just an outdated phone in that respect.

    A metal unibody with a matte finish is how Samsung has approached this phone design. On first sight, anyone can tell that the device is Samsung-made, as the design and looks look typical of the Korean giant. The home button has a built-in fingerprint reader. At the bottom, there’s a speaker grille, a microphone, the 3.5 mm jack, the micro USB charging port, and the speaker.

    The phone profile is very slim at about 6.8 mm, which makes the camera look a little more protruded. Volume controls on the left and the SIM tray with the power button on the right complete the design, with one of the SIM card slots doubling up as a memory card slot for expandable storage.

    It is Samsung’s forte to integrate awesome displays in all of its midrange and upper midrange segments. The 5.7-inch super AMOLED display with 16 million colours is a joy to behold, especially for the price range. The full HD resolution, coupled with a pixel density of 386 pixels per inch makes the display incredibly sharp and vibrant.

    Brightness is solid, and viewing angles are good too. Colours are mostly accurate, but suffer a bit when using the built-in display modes of the Galaxy C7.

    The specifications of the C7 are by no means top-notch, but they are enough to satisfy more than most users. A Snapdragon 625 SoC with eight 2 GHz cores, coupled with 4 GB RAM makes the phone more than a capable multitasking device. The graphics are handled by the Adreno 506 GPU and are more than adequate to run all Android games imaginable.

    Power users will be by no means let down by the performance of this device. Samsung has included a multi-window working environment in the device, which shows that the device can handle a multitude of tasks simultaneously.

    A 16 MP rear camera adorns the Samsung Galaxy C7, with an f/1.9 aperture and a dual tone LED flash. Clean and sharp images are produced with the C7, with minimal noise and resolved colours. Plenty of shooting modes should keep both casual and hardcore photographers busy, and these include modes like Panorama, Food, Beauty, Night, and HDR. Video recording is capped on 1080p at 30 fps.

    The selfie snapper is of 8 MP and offers the same f/1.9 aperture. Good colours and nice detail are a few features of pictures taken with the selfie camera, and it comes with a few shooting options of its own too.

    A non-removable 3300 mAh battery powers the Galaxy C7. The battery capacity is quite good and is more than enough to power the phone. According to tests, the battery life is quite superb on this phone, averaging about 25 and a half hours of 3G talk time, 15 hours of video playback and 14 and a half hours of web browsing, all uninterrupted.

    The Samsung Galaxy C7 is a great device and does not let anyone down by no means. The only issue is that it is a phone which is now largely outdated, considering it was released back in 2016. The phone is great, but with the options available in the market today, it would make sense to go for another device by another company. Even if you are a Samsung-head, consider buying the C7 pro for INR 20000 to get yourself a better deal on your next smartphone purchase.
