Anonymous, 24 Jun 2014good phone... I am now using this phone no hanging problem. hd video play well. Good camera qu... moreHow can it play hd videos??in specifications there is clearly wriiten that it supports only 480p videos...u can play 640×480 or 800×480 or lower resolution videos on galaxy core..some looks like hd videos, but they r not real hd... I think u dont know what is hd video...to call a video to be Hd,it should hv 1280×720 resolution or 1920×1080 resolution. ..I hv met so many people in my lyf who think that if a video has more MB, then it is a hd Video...once i told a boy who has a galaxy Y "your phone does not support hd videos"..he replied"no..it can play, i hv played a 40 mb video"..then i came to know that he has a misunderstanding..some people think that mp4, mkv formats r not hd..but these ideas r not right...to call a video to be Hd, only resolution matters..not mb or format.
There r some third party apps like mx player, km player, vlc player, mobo player, archos player which can play hd videos (at least 1280×720)..but sad thing is that they dont work on galaxy core properly..very very laggy play back...becoz galaxy core has a old GPU adreno 203..and it cannt render hd videos..

mahesh, 24 Jun 2014It is better to buy nokia xl.... i used galaxy core for 2 mnths and bored due to its high lagg... morenokia xl has only 4GB internal memory and only 1GB available for user and 768MB RAM so basically you won't be able to install many games and apps that you wanna play

It is better to buy nokia xl.... i used galaxy core for 2 mnths and bored due to its high lagging and worst gaming experience
sadd, 23 Jun 2014Which better..? core or Lg L70Lg L70 or Moto E is a good choice too.
Samsung Core is the worst phone ever, if you are thinking to take this phone please take Xperia M. There is lot of lagging in the phone. No HD video display, slow handling.
Even though i never got a person uptil now that samsung phone are good. just the same inside package and size get bigger and smaller.
Thiz phn iz completly all ryt,
the service is also very good
u can easily do anything wid this phn bt there is a little bit problem in dis phn dat iz da bettery problem!
Bt blv meh u can buy dis phn
its a excellent cell phone...
good phone... I am now using this phone no hanging problem. hd video play well. Good camera quality. only problem is battery draining. and camera capture time. thats take few seconds after clicking the camera button.
Ishteyaq , 23 Jun 2014@thunderbird, Sorry to pointing the fingers on u.U are saying that u r a experienceed android ... moreI dont know why people arguing for samsung phones..I hv not met a single person in real life who says samsung phones r vry good...my argument was not only for sony or xperia m....I hv jst tried to make people understood that we can get better phones at this price than galaxy core..u can buy sony or micromax or moto or lg or any other good samsung phone..my main point was the price...at a price tag of almost 13000 in my local market, galaxy core really offers really poor specifications...other manufacturers provide high end specifications at this price...for example..galaxy core offers a old cpu " 1.2 ghz dual core cortex a5" while xperia m provides a latest cpu " 1 ghz dual core krait", moto g offers a cpu "1.2 ghz quadcore cortex A7", micromax canvas magnus offers "1.5 ghz quadcore cortex a7" , micromax canvas unite2 offers "1.3 ghz quadcore cortex a7",moto e offers "1.2ghz dual core cortex a7"
Another example:galaxy core offers android jellybean 4.1.2,xperia m offers jellybean 4.3, moto g provides kitkat 4.4.2 and will hv many updates, micromax canvas magnus offers jellybean 4.2, unite 2 offers kitkat 4.4.2 and will hv another update,moto e offers kitkat 4.4.2.
Another example: galaxy core has old adreno 203 gpu, moto g has adreno 305 gpu,magnus has latest PowerVR SGX544MP2,unite 2 has Mali-400MP2,moto e has adreno 302 gpu
Galaxy core offers 640×480recording,xperia m offers 720p,moto g offers 720p, magnus offers 720p,unite 2 offers 720p, moto e offers 854×480...all of the above phones hv HDR MODE except galaxy core
Another example:galaxy core has max downloading speed of 7.2 mbps....xperia m and moto g, unite2, moto e hv max 21 mbps, magnus has 42 mbps.
Another example(pixel density, more density more good display):: galaxy core has 217 ppi, xperia m has 245 ppi,moto g has 326 ppi, magnus has 294 ppi, unite 2 has 199 ppi,moto e had 256 ppi...all phones except unite 2 has more pixel density than galaxy core
There r so many specification s in above phones which r superior than galaxy core. .
Above phones are of almost same price..or some are cheaper than galaxy core. ...it is clear that above phones offering more than galxy core. ..latest technology means better performance. .so it is obvious that because of the old technology. .galaxy core is inferior to these mobiles..latest android applications r more advanced and require latest hardware n softwares..so, galxy core will unable to handle apps properly or it will not able to open them...now conclusion is that samsung is really cheating us by selling old technology at higher price..while other manufacturers r providing more advanced technology at the same price. ..now choice yours...u want to buy old technology at a higher price or u want buy advanced technology at the same price. ..only u can decide. .
