- Analysis by Christelle Nina
The Samsung Galaxy C5 Pro apparently aims to primarily excel at two things -- its imaging specs for one, and its hardware for the other. With both its front and rear cameras sporting 16-megapixel CMOS sensors, it easily offers a highly-promising set of imaging capabilities -- most especially for avid selfie-takers who value a "balanced" set of shooters (as opposed to, say, a high-power main cam coupled with a relatively-lower-resolution front sensor, much like what can be found in the Sony Xperia XA1, for example). It can't record 4K videos , though, which would have been a much better maximization of its high-megapixel cameras.
As for performance features, its 4GB RAM stands out against what many similar models offer. It runs at an encouraging clock speed of 2.2GHz , courtesy of an eight-core Snapdragon 626 processor.
To round up the multimedia experience, it sports a 5.2-inch Super AMOLED screen whose 1080p resolution results to an attractive display clarity of 424DPI .
The aforementioned features are indeed promising, but what may worry users is the lack of formidable battery power to back these up. Packing 2600mAh in the tank, its battery size is more on the average side -- which means that it doesn't offer as much in this arena compared to its 3000mAh-and-up counterparts.
As for physical pros and cons, it doesn't boast of anything wow-worthy in terms of design. Nevertheless, the aviation-grade aluminum alloy finish that it sports, along with a comparably-compact 7mm body , is always a pleasant sight.

All in all, the Galaxy C5 Pro's list of pros and cons makes it appear like a solid choice in the upper-mid-range market. On paper, its promising performance specs, combined with convincing cameras, would likely please the multi-tasking multimedia junkie.
