I have used this phone for more than a year now. Overall, a pretty smooth-sailing experience. It even dropped face down on concrete floor twice, without any screen protector. I thought I was done for. But alas, not a single scratches on screen. It's really tough like a Gorilla glass.
Software-wise, the phone is roooted and I took advantage of it to save most of my data on the SD card, including my contacts and messages. So I will have easy access to them by just popping the sdcard into another phone.
Most of the hanging problem encountered with this phone is when people copy big files into the internal memory. Android system uses the internal memory very often for caching and keeping phone's settings. That's why you should not disturb the internal memory. Save all your data on the external SD instead and you will get a long life out of this phone.
I need to buy a dual sim phone tomorrow. Pls. Advice which one I should buy
GalaxyCore_Geek, 28 Aug 2014I been using Galaxy Core since past few months.
Its a great phone compared to other phones of... moreDont lie...there is no custom kitkat rom for Samsung galaxy core..nova fuson team are working on cyanogen mod..but they failed to build stable version..it has lots of bugs..RIL(radio interface layer) is not working. .that means no sim, no calling, no texting, no internet
Kit-cat (not kitkat), sammykit, monster roms are available. .but they r not real kitkat..they are just kitkat themed jb4.1.2 with some kitkat apps
Ilija, 28 Aug 2014Samsung galaxy core or Samsung galaxy core plus? Which is bettercore camer is better then sony picture quality is similar to s4 and s4 mini

manchester united1, 28 Aug 2014Sony have problem in screen fast damage(broken)As far I havent heard of any such prblm... even I have been using a sony xperia for about 2 years... its better than core because it has a adreno 305 gpu which is far bettr than the adreno 203 gpu... also I have personally used both the phones but I found xperia M to be more better than this bulllshit core....

Its a great phone compared to other phones of... moreHaven't used any xperia phone so you r saying that... xperia M is far better than this shit.... samsung phones suck.... small games every mobile plays well try some high end games like asphalt 8 on high graphic mode... leave the asphalt.. it wasnt even able to play subway surfers smoothly... you are saying that it has a decent battery... dont post fake opinions..... -_-
I been using Galaxy Core since past few months.
Its a great phone compared to other phones of Samsung or Sony.
I installed tonnes of Games and Other Apps in it, No lagging or any other problem at all....
Camera is good,Battery is good, Everything is Awesome except the only problem it had was there is no option to Move Apps and Games to Memory Card...
I installed KitKat 4.4 in it from XDA-Developers and got rid of those problems now I can Move all Apps and Games to SD card and I have a great time using this phone with Android KitKat , Its Amazing :)
Out of 10 I would rate it 9.... ;)
Daxu Giri, 28 Aug 2014Its a nice phone in sufficient budget.
Can i update it to 4.1.3 ?
Please anyone reply..Now you can upgrade it to KitKat4.4 as well with no bugs at all....
Look for KitKat ROM at XDA-Developers for Galaxy Core...

manchester united1, 28 Aug 2014buy grand 2 or grand neo better
cpu quad core
anyway this phone not bad but if you play g... moreGrand 2 is a good phone..but I think now it is not ideal deal...because, xiaomi has recently launched MI3 at rs13999...which has better hardwares than galaxy grand 2...u will not believe that mi3 has latest snapdragon 801 chipset,2.3 ghz krait 400 cpu, adreno 330 gpu,5 inch ips display with 441 pixel density. ..u will find these features only in Samsung galaxy S5...xiaomi has shown that how much Samsung get profits by selling galaxy s5....
Grand neo is a bad phone...very poor display...only 186 pixek density
manchester united1, 28 Aug 2014Sony have problem in screen fast damage(broken)Xperia m is better than galaxy core...it has latest jb4.3 os, powerful snapdragon msm 8228 chipset and powerful adreno 305 gpu...but only drawback is that it has a small 4 inch display
manchester united1, 28 Aug 2014you can apps to sd form google play you will find many apps to move apps 2 sdU can not move apps to sd in galaxy core. .becoz the kernel of galaxy core does not support it...apps to sd or other apps will only work if your kernel support it...so there is no way to move apps in galaxy core
