Hey guys what’s up…. This is Akshay Raskar and today we are going to do total review of Samsung’s new phablet Galaxy C9 Pro.
Samsung Galaxy C9 pro is first smartphone from Samsung that sports 6GB Ram launched in February 2017 at 36,000 ₹. This phone is response of Samsung to the popularity gained by the flagship killers from One Plus which are One Plus 3 and One Plus 3T. Though both this phones from One Plus are not same as of the Galaxy C9 Pro. Price range of phone is bit of as compared to the One Plus 3 and One Plus 3T offering much better features than Galaxy C9 Pro. Means Samsung is offering low end specifications at high end price.
Brief description about phone:-
1. Body Specs and Display:-
It is a stylish smartphone that comes with an aluminium metal unibody which is 6.9mm thick. Looks pretty good and having new design accent and new antenna lines at back. Phone extremely sleek and having good finish with rounded edges. It sports6-inch Full HD Super AMOLED Capacitive touch with a resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels at a pixel density of 367 pixels per inch. The screen is also protected by a Corning Gorilla Glass Scratch Resistant display. It also supports multitouch. Display provides you good viewing experience and clear view. Samsung had put in bunch of display mods which allows you to change display profiles which suits you. Device do sports a fingerprint scanner which is placed in the home button itself but performance is not good as it fails to recognise registered fingerprint many times which can be considered as major flaw at this price range. It is available in Black and Gold color options.
2.CPU and GPU
The phone is powered by a 1.95 GHz Octa core Qualcomm Snapdragon 653 processor with 4 cores at 1.95 GHz and 4 cores clocked at 1.4 GHz. What this means is the processor has Octa cores in the CPU and 6 GB of RAM ensures the phone runs smoothly with multiple applications open simultaneously. The Samsung Galaxy C9 Pro also packs in a Adreno 510 graphics processor. With all this packed together phone is very good to use in day to day life as it is fast and responsive. Also gaming experience on this phone is quite good as phone is responsive and almost no lag. Ram management is good in this phone. But benchmark scores are quite low which is preety disappointing. But overall in real life C9 Por can give you good experience.
3. Speakers and USB ports:-
Speaker location in on the bottom bazel when you are holding phone in portrait. It is single speaker which is not loudest as we seen. The speaker performance is quite disappointing. Phone do have USB-C type which is definitely good.
Device sports 4000 mAh non-removable battery which can give you a backup of 1 or 1½ day backup easily. As it is 1080p Super Amoled display it does not consumes battery very quickly. Also device supports quick charge which is plus point.
Its a Dual SIM Smartphone, and connectivity options on the Samsung Galaxy C9 Pro include , GPS, HotSpot, NFC,Wifi,Bluetooth. Also it is having two separate sim slots no hybrid type of sim slot which is good too.
C9 Pro comes with 6GB of RAM and 64GB ROM(inbuilt memory) which can be further expanded upto 256GB. There is dedicated slot for microSD card alongside dual sim card slot.
Samsung Galaxy C9 Pro is running Android 6.0.1 which is Marshmallow. There is no announcement about upgrade to Android Nougat from Samsung also you should not expect words on this. As Google is planning to announce its next Android version Samsung is still stuck with marshmallow which is bit disappointing.
The main camera on the Samsung Galaxy C9 Pro is a 16 MP shooter with f/1.9 aperture and also with features like Auto Focus, Face Detection, HDR, Panorama Mode, Geo-tagging, Touch Focus, Digital Zoom, Video Recording. Rear camera also supports 1080p video recording. Also dual LED flash present gives you good experience in low light. The smartphone also has a Front Facing Camera capable of shooting 16 MP selfies which also can shoot 1080p videos. Both the cameras performs very well in low light too. It do have features to provide you good photography experience but as compared to price range it lacks features like optical image stabilisation.
Phone is priced at 36,000 ₹. But Galaxy S6 Edge priced at 34,000 ₹ with the better features like good camera performance and great display as compared to the C9 Pro. Only plus point in this phone is it’s display and 6GB of RAM. Those who are not looking for high end performance this device is perfect for use in day to day life. If phone gets further updates can perform well in managing tasks without slowing down the phone. But in the end all this takes can be done with One Plus 3 and 3T also the future updates are sure in case of One Plus in same price range. At end C9 Pro is good bet ignoring the price.
