Powering the phone is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 626 SoC with an integrated Adreno 506 GPU. The processor has eight Cortex-A53 cores and is clocked at 2.2GHz. The Galaxy C7 Pro has 4GB of RAM along with 64GB of storage. You can expand storage by up to 256GB by popping in a microSD card. There is support for Bluetooth 4.2, dual-band Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, GPS, and NFC. The Galaxy C7 Pro has a non-removable 3300mAh battery and comes with a proprietary quick charger in the box.
Samsung Galaxy C7 Pro Software
Samsung chose to launch the C7 Pro with Android 6.0 Marshmallow instead of Android 7.0 Nougat. The UI that Samsung offers is quite polished and is in line with what we've seen on the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge. If you have used Samsung smartphones in the past, you'll find this UI improved, yet familiar. You also have the option to customise it with a theme of your choice. Samsung lets you select themes and icons from the settings, and you can choose from a variety of free and paid ones.
The Galaxy C7 Pro sports a 5.7-inch Super AMOLED display with full-HD resolution and thin borders. We must say that the display is very good. Punchy contrast and good viewing angles make it viewable in various lighting conditions. You can choose from a selection of predefined display modes but there is no way of fine-tuning these settings.
The Galaxy C7 Pro sports 16-megapixel cameras at the front and back. It has a dual-tone LED flash at the back, but misses out on a selfie flash. Double-pressing the home button quickly launches the camera app no matter what's currently running on the phone. You can choose between multiple modes before taking photos, including Continuous Shot to take bursts, and a Food mode that adds a bokeh effect to make subjects more prominent.
Good Battery Life
Battery life is good and the device manages to go one full day with medium use and a bit of gaming. Our HD video loop test went on for 16 hours and 8 minutes before the phone died. What this means is that you won't need to worry when you are away from a charger. When the battery does run out, the bundled adaptive fast charger manages to top the phone up in around 90 minutes.
