  •  galaxy core - review after 10 days of use. 11 May 2014

    3/5 stars

    By Suraj Nair

    Samsung is quite good in providing budget - oriented phones with adequately satisfying features. Galaxy core is the successor to galaxy s duos with lots of improved features with a dual core processor clocked at 1.2 GHz, a well - satisfying 5 megapixel camera, vga front camera, 1 GB ram for a satisfactory multitasking and gaming experience and a resolution of 480 x 800 pixels. Coming to the look and feel of the device, it comes under the same signature (rather typical) design of its earlier siblings - a glossy plastic back, curved edges, chrome finished sides but is actually made of plastic like its earlier counterparts. As far as the software features are concerned, the android operating system is based on the version 4.1.2 (jellybean) which is quite disappointing because phone of similar price range have the 4.2.2 version of jellybean out-of-the-box. Other common feature is its customised touchwiz UI which looks very different than the stock (pure) android user interface. Touchwiz UI makes the phone look cartoonish that may or may not be beautiful which is a matter of personal opinion. The gaming experience on this device was quite smooth. Casual games like subway surfers, temple run 1, 2 and oz and heavy games like need for speed - most wanted, dead trigger (1 & 2) played smoothly. All other games other than asphalt 8 played without problems. Asphalt 8 had some noticeable lags which is a common aspect in many other handsets. The display quality on this device is excellent considering its price point - very bright with nice viewing angles. Battery life did not seem to be astonishing, lasting a day with casual use and almost half a day with heavy usage. As far as the durability of the phone is concerned, it is just satisfactory with some scuffs and scratches if not handled very carefully since it is entirely made of glossy plastic. The camera on this phone captured nice shots with less noise in the image but the colour reproduction was not very natural. Coming to the conclusion of this review, the galaxy core is overall a good budget - oriented package with useful features packed in it. Some substitutes to be taken a serious look are the motorola moto g, lava iris pro 30, grand neo, lava iris pro 20, sony xperia m and micromax canvas hd.
