In box accessories comes with this smartphone are SIM ejecting tool, the charger which is of course fast charger, then we have a type C USB cable, normal Samsung Earpods and at last we have the USB type-c OTG cable and the type-c OTG to old USB 2.0 cable for OTG.

The Samsung Galaxy C7 Pro looks so stunning that I have to say a super premium phone. Actually the price of this phone is 28,000/- INR.

Take your viewing experience to another level with the new Galaxy C7 Pro. With a 14.43 cm (5.7”) Full HD sAMOLED 1080p Display, it makes your world truly amazing with breathtaking detail, incredible colors and deep contrast.

The Samsung C7 pro has display is one of the best one in the market, outdoor visibility under sun is also very comfortable to look at. So, all and all pretty nice display.

Samsung Galaxy C7 vs C7 Pro

Lots of people have this question, that what is the difference between the Samsung Galaxy C7 Pro and The Galaxy C7. So, first of all there is a design difference. Of course, C7 pro is now a bit thicker but both are still having 5.7 inch screen size.


You get the latest software features there with Grace UI, The always on mode and the secure folder and all that latest software that Samsung introduces. Which you don’t get with the Galaxy C7 and it’s more likely that the Android Nougat will come first on the Samsung C7 Pro model than the C7.

So, currently of course we don’t ahve any offcial news on this but my guess is that this one look at the update first. Because it’s already running on the Grace UI also. Now, its having USB type-c connector, which is a nice upgrade.


We have a 16 MP camera instead of the old 8 MP sensor for the selfies and it also includes gyroscope. Which was absent in the Samsung C7. So, yeah that is the upgrade and the major differences with the Galaxy C7.

The Samsung Galaxy C7 Pro is overall a better phone and it costs around 28K INR.

So let’s talk about Samsung Galaxy C7 Pro here. If we see it’s a build quality is pretty much based on the Samsung Galaxy C9 Pro, it is now thicker and a bit more gripper compared to the Slim Samsung Galaxy C7.

Processor and RAM: Fitter and Faster

The Galaxy C7 Pro is unbelievably nimble. With a 4 GB RAM and a super fast processor, it sets a new standard in multitasking. Switching apps, downloading music, playing games – all gets done in a whiz.

The Samsung Galaxy C7 Pro got power button on the right, 3.5 mm headphone jack and all the feature as any classic Samsung smartphone, it comes with Qualcomm MSM8953-Pro Snapdragon 626 chipset and Octa-core 2.2 GHz Cortex-A53 processor.

Grace Touchwiz UI and Fingerprint sensor

Traditional Samsung Home button is there with the fingerprint sensor, so unlocking phone is pretty fast and easy. You can’t ask anything more with in this price range.

Let’s look at the software, so as I mentioned before that this phone comes with the latest Grace Touchwiz UI basically under marshmallow. Of course it is very similar to Android Nougat 7.0, I knew that you get a little bit of changes here and there but Grace TouchWiz UI is a huge treat from Samsung.

Changes in Quick settings Area

The Samsung Galaxy C7 Pro has got a lot of changes, especially in the notifications and quick setting area. It has blue light filter in quick setting, which is like a Night mode. Than we have the flash torch, you can have different levels of flash with slider menu.

The Samsung Galaxy C7 Pro also has inbuilt capture screen option in quick settings, which not only allows user to capture screen, but it also allows to record screen. The Galaxy C7 Pro got one of the best feature from the Galaxy Note 7, which is secure folder.

Settings looking like Google Pixel

Then they have big change in the settings area, looking along like a Google Pixel, We get these sort of icons here, it’s not cluster anymore it’s not scattered anymore. It’s much more easier to operate now.

Device maintenance: one stop shop to optimize

The Samsung Galaxy C7 Pro got the device maintenance, which is like a one stop shop for your phone, to clear up caches and the user stuff. You can optimize your phone to make it more faster which is really good especially for the super budget phones.

Advanced Features

Then Galaxy C7 Pro has the advanced features tab, where you are going to get all your features, for example smart stay, quick launch camera, one handed operation, because this is a big phone, so if you have small hand then, you can basically use this option.

Then Galaxy C7 Pro also has pop-up view gesture, smart capture, and tons of tons of advanced tricky things. Software is absolutely lovable. This phone is one of the favorite of mine at this moment, Samsung has improved  this a lot and they are going to improve it even further with the Galaxy S8.

Smooth Experience in terms of Gaming

Now, let’s discuss about the performance. As mentioned it has Qualcomm MSM8953-Pro Snapdragon 626, 4 GB of RAM should be enough to give you guys a really smooth experience in terms of gaming. As per survey, 626 processor is a great processor for a high end, sort of mid-range device.

Camera: Brighter and Sharper

Moving on to the camera on this phone which is 16 MP, nothing is new here basically, it’s almost the same that you get on Galaxy 8 2017 series and Galaxy A8 2016.

It’s never too dark for a gorgeous shot with the revolutionary f/1.9 large aperture lenses. With its 16 MP front & rear cameras and DUAL LED flash, the new Galaxy C7 Pro lets you capture moments brilliantly in any light.

To be really honest it is not that impressing, but this will do just fine, you will get a good images outdoor and indoor, so I hope that next year Samsung improves this and add some kind of ability to recall 4K videos, may be even faster auto focus to improve video quality.

The front camera is improved also. You get better selfies, camera UI is very user friendly, it records videos with 1080p.

Battery and Charger: Instant Charge. More Power

Moving on to the Battery life on the Galaxy C7 Pro, This phone is coming with a 3300 mAh, which is the same as the Galaxy C7, this should be able to get around one day easily out of this phone, normally 15 hours lasting battery is enough.

It takes almost 90 minutes to charge up fully from zero percentage. That is quick, actually very fast for this phone. So, yeah The Galaxy C7 Pro is a great phone and a greate alternative to the Galaxy a series.

So, after taking everything under consideration, Samsung C7 Pro is quite better option of Galaxy A series, not only that it comes with good battery backup too.
