Is the Samsung Galaxy C7 Pro worth buying at the new price?

Despite the price cut, the Galaxy C7 Pro still seems a bit overpriced. There are several other smartphones available in the market right now which offer bigger displays (6-inch and more) with the new 18:9 aspect ratio. The recently launched Oppo F7 and Vivo V9 offer an iPhone X-like bezel-less design and are priced at Rs 21,990 and Rs 22,990 respectively.

Also, there are better-equipped offerings which are priced significantly lower than the Galaxy C7 Pro. The Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Pro offers dual rear cameras, a 5.99-inch Full HD+ (2160x1080p) display, an upgraded Snapdragon 636 SoC and a 20MP selfie camera at Rs 13,999. The Galaxy C7 Pro is for those who want to buy a Samsung smartphone just for the brand value, otherwise, there are many better alternatives available at the same price and lower.
