Very Good Value for money device
10 January, 2014
Samsung Galaxy Core. I bought it for my Brother. Actually he wanted to go with S Duos which is 3000 cheaper than the Core but i recommended Core for him.
At first talking about the features.
Core has Dual SIM,Wifi,Bluetooth,1GB RAM,8GB Internal Storage,5MP Rear camera with flash and Android Operating System.
I recommend this mobile for everyone who want to update to the latest technological world i.e the ANDROID and that too its SAMSUNG.
Out of 1GB RAM you will be provided with nearly 750MB only and that is enough for the daily usage. My Micromax Canvas 2 is excellent for gaming and everything even though it has only 512MB of RAM.
Dont think about the negative comments like Gaming is important, apps,etc.
I bet that you will stop playing games and installing and using the latest apps after one month of purchase of any mobile.
So keep it aside. Coming to internal memory , i think another 8GB external sd card will be far enough for extreme users like me. I mean for watching movies,etc.
It has a decent screen size also, not much smaller like we have seen in the Galaxy Y or something and not much big like the Canvas mobiles from Micromax. Even college students can handle it very easily with one hand.
5MP camera does a great job in the night times too and no need to talk in the day light. Its awesome. Dont compare with the Sony cybershot or something else. Please see the Mobile's camera as a mobile only. Many people will be comparing the quality with the cybershots,etc.
Front camera is enough for the Video calling.
Dual sim is also beneficial because now a days everyone need 2 sim's.Talking about the SIM cards this mobile will not support the normal sim cards. You need to cut it to the mirco sim and than use it. Dont worry the showroom will provide with the SIM cutting process.
Battery is decent and remember one thing a smartphone has great features. So you shouldn't expect much like the Featured Phones like Nokia.
Battery backup depends upon the usage only.
And i think i have judged my Title i. e "Value for money"
I mean you got all the required features at your decent budget and dont expect much.
If you want more you can go to the Celkon or Micromax or Karbonn. Treat Samsung as Samsung only. You can get more features in other brands also, but you cant get the lifetime or durability like Samsung.Remeber i am not the fan of Samsung because i still use Micromax Canvas 2 A110.
And nothing negative points to say because till now i never saw any defects in the mobile.
My advice is to purchase INSURANCE also for your smartphones, it will be useful and thank you for reading my review.
