Anonymous, 17 Oct 2017Hi everyone. I've been using the c9 pro about 3 months ago and i bought it from july 2017. Btw... moreThanks for your review. It was informative. I think I would go for Note 5. Cheers buddy.
Hi everyone. I've been using the c9 pro about 3 months ago and i bought it from july 2017. Btw i'm from malaysia. There are a few things that I like and dislike about this phone:
1. First of all, I really like the design and the build quality on this phone. It feels very premium when holding it. It feels like a high end flagship phone. However, it is quite slippery due to the smooth metal body, so a case might be needed for this one.
2. Display. For me, I really don't care about Quad HD display. Full HD display is already enough for me and it looks good and sharp whether viewing at outdoor or indoor place thanks to Super Amoled display.
3. Performance. I don't experience any lag or slow down on my phone. The speed is really fast when opening apps and playing high end games such as Cover Fire and Dead Trigger. And most importantly, the ram management. 6GB RAM is really useful and it can keep a lot of apps in the background. The only thing lag I experience was opening Gallery. When I swipe down or up photos in the Gallery, it will lag but not too much. Other than that, this phone is really fast.
4. Battery Life. The battery life for this phone is amazing. I got about 9 Hours on Screen on Time and 18 hours standby mode. For me, i usually like watch Youtube videos, open media social apps, play a few games about an hour and the brightness level is 50%.
5. Software. Personally I really like samsung grace ui since they launch galaxy note 7. The ui is clean and has some of the features like the note 7. For example, theme engine looks cool,opening dual apps,device maintenance, and always on display. AOD features are quite limited. You cannot change the clock style and only can change the color of fonts and background and most importantly, it does not consume battery life too much.
1. Camera. On paper, the camera specs looks great. However, in my experience, the camera quality of this phone is okay. It's not the best camera i would say and there is no OIS which is sucks which means you have to hold steady when trying to take photos and videos. Lowlight and indoors pictures looks worse even though it has f1.9 aperture. But in daylight and outdoor pictures quality looks good. Same for the selfie camera, the picture quality looks soft to me and I think Oppo selfie camera phones are better than mine. I do really it has the same camera sensor such as galaxy note 5 which is still of the best camera on the market even in 2017. I know the c9 pro is a midrange phone but considering the price is RM 2300 when I first bought it and the note 5 which is currently at the same price or cheaper than c9 pro, they should have put it into the c9 pro.
2. Software update. When it comes to software update, samsung always late to update their devices especially for midrange and budget phones. Currently, I am running android marshmallow based on samsung grace ui note7, which is i like. The last update was security patch at 1 July 2017. If samsung does not want to update to android nougat, then they should skip it and continuously update to android oreo. I do really hope that when they update to android oreo, I hope that the c9 pro will receive the latest software and features such as from galaxy s8 or note 8 and hopefully there is no bug and slowdown at all.
3. Speaker. The speaker is good actually and it has stereo speaker. The only thing i don't like about it is the speaker at the earpiece. When I hold the speaker at the bottom, the sound from the earpiece is quite low and speaker on the bottom is gone. But still better than galaxy s8 or note 8.
4. Price. The price is quite expensive. I mean you can get a better phone with a better specs such as Oneplus 3T or older flagship phones.
Overall, the C9 pro is really good device. Before I buy this phone,my previous phone that I were used was galaxy note 2.It was a gift from my mother. Unfortunately, my note2 has died and I need a phone ASAP. I already look at other phones at the store such as galaxy note 5 and galaxy s8. I want to buy the 64GB version of the note 5. Unfortunately,the note 5 is not available and I need to pre-order it which gonna take some time. For the galaxy s8, the price is expensive about RM3000+ which I am not afford to buy. I hope my review will make you consider before buying this phone. Thank you.

Worst phone ever that I have seen

Fingerprint sensor does not work properly , my wife had a moto g 4 plus ( a phone half a price of c9 pro ) which had a much better fingure print sensor.
It doesnt recognizes even if u keep the finger in exactly same position as when you record the fingerprint.
