Samsung advanced the extra large screen cell phone in 2011 with the dispatch of the Galaxy Note. In those days, the telephone was considered outlandishly substantial and was ignored for being too enormous to be effective. Quick forward six years and now every cell phone being propelled has a screen more than 5.0-inch in size, with 5.5-inch rapidly turning into a prominent choice. Interestingly, the first Galaxy Note had a show that deliberate just 5.3-inch in size.
What’s more, with wide screen telephones developing in notoriety today, going much greater appeared a coherent way to take. Enter the 6.0+ inch telephones. Samsung is without a doubt no outsider to this class – yet it appears telephones like the Galaxy Mega 6.3 came too soon to a market that wasn’t exactly prepared for it. Today, notwithstanding, 6.0-inch telephones all of a sudden don’t appear to be all that huge so this may be the ideal time to hop once again into this fragment and attempt your hand at it. Thus we have the Galaxy C9 Pro.

Launched first in China, the C9 Pro has now made its way internationally and we have the Indian model here for review. Users in both China and India have shown considerable interest in big screen phones and as such are perfect for the C9 Pro. But Samsung hasn’t just stopped at the screen size; it seems the Korean giant has taken some pointers from its Chinese rivals. So now the 6.0-inch display is coupled with a powerful octa-core processor, 6GB of RAM and a big 4000mAh battery. Because if there’s one thing that Asian markets like it’s big numbers, and the C9 Pro has them in spades.

The C9 Pro specs get about as good as a non-S or Note series device specs can get. Samsung even went overboard with 6GB of RAM, which is a first for any Samsung phone. But numbers only tell part of the story so let’s get to the part where we use the phone and see what it’s really like.
