Today, smartphones are no longer considered a luxury, but they have now become a means of communication, a source of information, a provider of entertainment, and so forth. Smartphones such as the ones from Samsung Hong Kong offer such, and they offer more and better features along with their new flagships each year. One of their latest models, the Galaxy C7, is sure to appeal to people who are into smartphones that boast heavy features at an affordable price tag.
Apart from being one of the most impressively designed Samsung smartphones, the Samsung C7 has a sharp and stunning display. Its pixel-rich resolution and Super AMOLED technology make it capable of providing sharp and colourful images. With that, it can display finer details of all possible digital activities such as streaming videos, viewing photos, reading e-books, or working on documents. Also, whether you’re indoors or outdoors, the C7 excels in showing a viewable display regardless. Using your phone even under direct sunlight is trouble-free because of its screen’s impressive sunlight legibility.
One of the best features of the Galaxy C7 is its powerful battery. Although it’s non-removable, it contains a remarkable 3300 mAh battery. This is equivalent to over 100 hours whilst on standby! Such incredible endurance is possible through its onboard chipset which is energy efficient, allowing users to have quick access to apps, games, messaging, etc., without consuming too much power.
A great number of people these days want to use a hell lot of apps on their smartphones simultaneously. To achieve such result, Samsung invest time and resources to make phones capable of multi-tasking. Their C7 model has a speedy 2 GHz octa-core processor and an impressive 4 GB RAM, making it have superior multi-tasking skills. Just like other Samsung flagships such as the Galaxy Note, it has multi-tasking tricks up its sleeve such as split screen and floating apps. If you launch the split screen mode, you can either drag or drop the content between them. Also, by collapsing the app, you can create a resizable, floating app window.
If you’re in the market for a modern-day midrange phone with an impressive rear and front camera, then the Samsung Galaxy C7 is your best bet. It brandishes a 16 MP main camera, enabling you to capture sharp and clear images in split seconds. In terms of camera launch speed, the Galaxy C7 never falls behind its contemporaries. Meanwhile, its 8 MP front-facing camera is recommended for taking selfies. Take a photo of yourself and use image-enhancing options such as the Beauty face to achieve a head-turning selfie, which can make your skin tone look fair and smooth, your face slimmer, and your eyes larger. Aside from that, the Samsung C7 wields other image boosting filters and effects that are helpful features for selfie lovers.
