Question: How’s the Samsung Galaxy C9 Pro design and build quality?

The bezel around the display is super slim (76 percent screen to body ratio) and that’s all the way more important while considering big display phones.

Above its display, there is a selfie camera, earpiece, proximity, light sensors, notification light and Samsung branding, whereas, fingerprint embedded home button with capacitive navigation buttons sits just beneath the display.

The sim and microSD card tray alongside power button sits on the right edge whereas, a volume rocker is placed on the left edge. All physical buttons are firm and offer good tactile feedback.
