Samsung C7 Review : A mid range phone packed with features
Samsung C7- The new range of phones from the Korean manufacturer has got people slightly confused as to where it actually belongs in the pecking order. We all know the “S” range are the big Daddies, the Galaxy Notes come next, and then the J series are the budget ones.
Well the new C7 is probably a hybrid between the A series and the Note, with a screen as big as the latter, and a price tag closer to the former. Everyone who has used a Samsung knows that their super AMOLED display is light years ahead of their competition, and you can’t really compare the brightness and colors to any other phone.
The new C7 has not only the super AMOLED display, but is also advertised as a 2.5D display. Apart from adding to the aesthetics of the phone, the slightly contoured edge that is referred to as 2.5D also serves to distinguish from other flat screen phones.
Samsung C7 Price tag, processor and camera features
With a price tag around the Rs.30,000 range, this phone falls in with the likes of the A9, though the similarities end there. The C7 is equipped with the latest Qualcomm 625 chipset, a 2 Ghz Octa Core Cortex-A53 CPU, and an Adreno 506 Graphics Processing Unit.
This, along with the 5.7” display puts it in the same league as the Note. The main camera is a 16 megapixel, with a 1.9 mega pixel camera in the front. The camera also features auto-focus, and dual LED flash, however phase detection and laser focus are missing.
A common feature among top of the line phones, 4k video recording is also missing. As far as the OS goes, the C7 comes with Google’s latest flavor of Android, Marshmallow, which would be expected from a phone in this price range.
Samsung C7 Storage and expandable Memory
Memory is something that Apple users normally have to worry about, especially with the huge price difference between their 16gb and 64gb versions. Samsung on the other hand, doesn’t believe in discrimination based on storage, and have included a 32/64gb expandable “hybrid” memory slot.
That along with 4 gigs of RAM is more than enough for even a heavy user who downloads dozens of applications regularly. Other notable features are geo-tagging, biometrics on the home button, face detection and noise cancellation.

Samsung C7 Power and Charging capabilities
Battery life is easily the most complained about feature of any cell phone in existence, and it looks like the Koreans have gone out of their way to make sure this isn’t the case in the C7.
The phone features a non-removable 3300 mAh Li-ion battery with their Quick Charge 3.0, the latest version of their software charger assistant. Quick Charge 3.0 boasts an 83% charge in under 30 minutes.
In conclusion, this looks like a great effort from Samsung to bridge the gap between the expensive Note Series and the budget A or J series, while making sure that the end user experience is not compromised on.
