The Galaxy C7 (2017) is 2.9inches (74.7mm) wide, 6inches (152.4mm) tall, and 0.3inches (7.9mm) thick. I can just barely use it with one hand, so it may feel big to some people.

You may be a little dissatisfied with it in some situations, for example when you want to capture scenery in very high resolution or print out beautiful photos, but this should not be an issue you run into very often.

The Galaxy C7 (2017) is equipped with a rather powerful 16 MP front camera. The photos turn out quite well since they don't look grainy even when you print them out.
