Samsung Galaxy Core LTE review: Fast at the core

 

The Samsung Galaxy Core LTE crosses no lines to deliver what the company thinks is the right balance between equipment and price. Focus is on a single feature, until recently exclusive to premium smartphones - LTE connectivity.

Quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE; dual-band 3G with HSPA ; 4.5" 16M-color qHD capacitive touchscreen; 244ppi ; Android OS v4.2.2 Jelly Bean with TouchWiz UI ; Dual-core 1.2GHz Cortex-A9 CPU, PowerVR SGX 544MP GPU ; 1GB of RAM ; 2,100mAh Li-Ion battery ; 5MP...

Mediocre performance ; Uninspiring screen ; Android version is not up to date

The original Galaxy Core had its own little squad in what seemed like no time. A Plus model was released soon after the first one, and the Galaxy Core Advance came in a few months later.

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...

Samsung Galaxy Core Review

 

Samsung Galaxy Core is the latest budget smartphone from Samsung. It runs Android Jelly Bean 4.1.2 and is available for 13050INR.

• Dual SIM ; • Light and strong body ; • Good battery backup

• Average Performance ; • Average Display ; • Low resolution cameras

Compromising somewhat on performance front, Samsung provides you with a piece of Galaxy family at a relatively low price. This includes the hierarchical Galaxy design and most of the features of its TouchWiz UI. It can be a fine deal for Samsung fans...
