Camon C7 versus C9 Conclusions

Clearly, the Camon C9 is the more powerful device. While both devices have processors clocked at 1.3 Ghz and have 2GB of RAM, the eight cores on the Camon C9 make for a significant difference in performance. It is your call now. Which of these two would you go for if they were the only available options?


  1. I compare the C7 with the C8 rather than with the C9, reasons being they both have mixed dual SIM slots (so I’ve been told) and no 4G.

    I would pick the C7 over the C9 because the size suits me and I don’t have any need for 4G.

  2. Sometimes considering the difference in size, I’m being tempted to say the C9 is for guys and C7 for ladies.

    My opinion though.
