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. .
Galaxy core is a not bad phone. It is a good for middle class people.
thunderbird, 21 Jun 2014Request to all....some perdons r trying to give some false information about samsung galaxy co... more@thunderbird, Sorry to pointing the fingers on u.U are saying that u r a experienceed android user but I don't find u an experience user as u r saying some nonsense thing.The fact is that all android phones get hanged more or less at time depending on the internal storage,ram,processor,how a user using it etc.I have already experienced sony's mobile m and e1.It's oftenly get hanged.Sometime galaxy core is also get hanged but very less compared to sony's phone. Sony is better than samsung only in terms of look and two more features which Sony provides in its low budget phone also and samsung provide this features in high end phones nd the name of the features is NFC and screen mirroring.
Too bad mobile No hd video play in this phone and some time display colour low problem, my friend also have galaxy core and he had also faced this problem
But In Gaming It's Cool I played in this phone heavy games like thor etc

thunderbird007, 21 Jun 2014@rio...I m not a basic android user..I used to change my phones after five or six month of use... moreno i have this phone and this phone is really good and powerful and you do not know anything about phones you said (bad phone.not good.good but expensive.not good for gamer) and you did not know why the phone is bad. if you chick any video about core on you tube or internet, you find this phone is good and better than xperia m,you should learn alot about phones,you ask me whar is the karnel,ok i have some information the kernel is basically the bridge between the software and hardware.when yoy command your phone to do something, the software sends that request to the hardware which on turn, makes the lanching of the app possible..you ask me about hardwares, softwares,ok The (hardware): is all about computer-you can see and touch and adherence with both hands, such as the motherboard , and the screen, and (casa), and so on; Everything to see and touch and adherence with both hands is called (hardware).
The (software): is all about computer-you can see it, but you can not touch it with both hands, such as the various programs of the computer, and you just installed; The latter you can see only, but you do not have to touch it or hold it, as well as matter with respect to different operating systems, which are installed on the device; This also only have to see with both eyes, but to touch it or hold it does not have.,,,, ok over clocked kernel,,,alot of people over clock their phons for performance but this so-called performanc but this performance has some pros and cons.
pros,,,it can help you when you play games on your phones
cons,,,the phone Heat up faster,,,,,,,,, ok
do not misleading people,if you ask anyone about galaxy core,he will say it is a good fone,if you have this phone or not,know anything about phones or not,like this phone or not, anyway i love this phone and happy with it coz this phone is very good
