Review Samsung Galaxy Core LTE SM-G386F Smartphone


Turbo data. A 4.5-inch smartphone powered by Android 4.2.2 and high-speed LTE for a price considerably below 300 Euros (~$416): Samsung's Galaxy Core LTE SM-G386F enables a browsing speed of up to 150 Mbit/s - not its only advantage, as our review proves.

High-quality build, Stylish metal bezel, Easy use owing to TouchWiz interface, LTE up to 150 Mbit/s, Primary camera's decent quality, Current games run smoothly, Low temperature development, Long battery runtimes, Samsung bundles a good smartphone...

Only Android 4.2.2, Only 5 GB storage available, Webcam w/ VGA resolution, Limited performance reserves for future games and apps, Although the dual-core SoC places Samsung's smartphone on a solid performance stand fast enough for current Android...

Samsung Galaxy Core Review


Dressed in typical Samsung uniform looks, the Galaxy Core marches not in the forefront with top of the line specs, but indeed in the core of Samsung's army - the mid-range…

Affordable price ; Well-rounded device ; Mostly smooth performance

Display is not bright enough for convenient outdoor use ; Cliched design

The Samsung Galaxy Core is a well balanced handset with no single standout feature to amaze users, but nor does it have any huge downsides either. Its weakest point is probably the slightly dim screen, but even that is not a fatal flaw. We do like its...
