Design X Display
Good aesthetics is one of the numerous attributes of the Samsung Galaxy C7. Expertly curved edges and 2.5D curved glass at the frontal gives the device that alluringness upon first sight. Added to that, the home key which also serves as the fingerprint sensor seats perfectly at the bottom bezel’s centre.
Even when held, the device is super slim thanks to its thin 6.8 mm thickness. More so, lovers of colors other than Black can choose from the Gold, Pink Gold and Dark Grey color options of the device.
For viewing gusto, a 5.7-inch display is made available on the smartphone. As usual, Samsung sticks to its Super AMOLED panel to provide unique display output. The smartphone’s sharpness and crispness is determined by crisp resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels and 386 PPI.
Performance X Software
Over the years, Samsung has patronized the best chipset maker in the smartphone industry and that partnership didn’t stop in this piece of tech. Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 SoC is what anchors the smartphone’s core operations. In the same line of action, an octa-core Cortex-A53 that clocks at 2.0 GHz is at work. Following up closely in performance, a large sized 4 GB RAM is on tap.
Moving on, Android 6.0 Marshmallow OS that’s easily upgradeable to Android Nougat OS serves as the software of Samsung Galaxy C7.
Truth be told, files such as music, videos, images and documents can be stored up to the tune of 32 GB. An even better 64 GB internal storage variance of the smartphone also exists. Both variants can aggrandize up to 128 GB with the use of an external memory.
Professional photography is the landmark of the 16 MP rear shooter and a dual tone dual-LED flash on this smartphone. F/1.9 aperture is also onboard to adjust the intensity of light that enter the camera lens.
Selfie addicts can maximize the luxury of the 8 MP front shooter to capture selfies at its best.
The device owes its duration length to a non-removable Li-Poly 3.3 Ah battery. As a plus, the battery charges fast due to Quick Charge technology put in place.
