Its a bullshit and a typical samsung type phone.. Every samsung phone wheather it is of 6000 or 13000 consists most the same features.. Only some additional sensors.. I bought this phone over my micromax A94 canvas.. The day I bought it I was regretting.. Nothing was new to me the same samsung type phone nothing new.. You could not believe its poor screen quality that a video which was being supported in a very cheap phone ( micromax A50 ninja) this phone was not able to support it.. Screen was very poor, I was able to see boxes even in the hd videos that worked well with my previous phone.. Specially I would like to mention that temple run 2 the game was getting solarised at times.. Even the subway surf was not reaponding properly it was moving alow and was not smooh.. But I would like to praise its camera quality it was just too awesome.. But the phone is only meant for samsung lovers, I didnt install mch apps in it so it was maintaing its decent processing speed but samsung needs to change its boooring os to some new things like quad core procesor in cheaper phones.. I could not survive with that phone so I switched to micromax canvas 4 which is not comparable wif this phone.. Atlast of my review I woul not suggest this phone rather canvas 2 plus and canvas hd are far better than this typical bullshit samsung phone..

Anonymous, 07 Mar 2014i8262 & i8260 is same? Galaxy core play can asphalt 8 , MC 4 ...? ?
*Revised* (btw just a correction on the previous review. I meant 480p not 420)
My first venture into the world of Android :-D Been using this for seven months now. It's a pretty decent phone. Sure, in this day and age its screen size and resolution don't scream high end but for casual users looking for a budget phone that covers all the basics the Galaxy Core's performance will be more than satisfactory. Its camera is ok, pics taken in proper lighting look sharp for 5mp and video recording is good at 480p.
On another note, I wouldn't recommend this to people looking for heavy gaming or high quality videos. While the adreno 203 gpu handles a good chunk of basic games like Candy Crush, Angry Birds and Temple Run smoothly you'll notice a lot of lag when playing the more graphic intensive ones. Video playback maxes out at 480p and although I found that it is *technically* possible to play 720p videos through apps like VLC Player suffice it to say that the quality looks just awful and fragmented.
I should also comment on the weak battery life. Because it runs out of juice real quick I usually have to charge the Core two to three times a day after three to five hours of heavy usage.
Regarding the dual sim functionality I can't comment on that as haven't checked it out yet.
While comparing the Core to other alternatives like the cheaper Lumia 520 (or 525) or the beast Moto G you'll notice that it fails miserably in certain departments. The Lumia 520 for example has a superior gpu (Adreno 305 I think) and can play videos above 480p smoothly. Similarly the Moto G just kills the core in multiple areas (screen resolution, video recording, cpu, gpu) though I should mention that these phones suffer from a couple of drawbacks of their own (lumia 520 lacks a secondary camera, no flash, lesser ram and doesn't have the same amount of customization found in android while external memory aka removable storage is absent Moto G and its battery is non removable).
The Core imo is not the best but certainly not the worst. I got it for Rs. 12,400 last year so its probably gonna be priced around 10 -11 grand at the moment. But do check out all its specs and alternatives before purchasing it so you know it's what you want.
