Samsung Galaxy C7 Pro Battery

The C7 Pro houses a 3300 mAh non-removable battery with fast charge support. On a full charge you can expect 7 to 15 hours of non-stop moderate to heavy usage. With mixed moderate usage you can easily expect 2 days of backup.

Samsung Galaxy C7 Pro Battery Performance (time / battery % drop / estimated battery temperature)

  • Running Benchmark app – 9 minutes /1% /  33 degree
  • Asphalt 8 + MC5 game play – 32 minutes / 7% / 34 degree
  • FHD video play back – 28 minutes / 5% / 33 degree

It took me 1 hours 30 minutes to charge the handset from 3% to 100% using wall charger.

Verdict

The Samsung Galaxy C7 Pro is a good handset, powerful, packed with good features, comes with NFC too and overall performance is smooth – good for gaming, plus hardware hardly heats up. Looking at the price once would immediately compare it with OnePlus handset. No doubt the OnePlus is better for the price but C7 Pro is better in two areas – one is the screen and other is the battery life.

So if you are comfortable with Samsung brand and happy with their after sales, the Samsung Galaxy C7 pro is a good option to buy.
