Why samsung phones slows down after some month of use??
Main reason is its touchwiz launcher.it consumes too much ram...also optimisation is not good in samsung phones..sometimes, my galxy core hangs even with 300 mb ram free
I must say micromax optmises their phone very well..I wondered how my sister's canvas a88 (which has 512 ram) run fast only with 40 mb ram free.
I've got my own samsung galaxy core 2 sm-g355h/ds, after 2 days of using the capacitive touch screen got cracked, the samsung personnel told us that it was because of pressing hard on the findings! oh man! that's too weak, the warranty does not cover that concern they did not replace it, you must pay 4,500 to replace it, i bought it for 9,200 plus. and now they want me to pay another 4,500! what a pain!!! it's too weak to use that kind of unit! well don't expect too much they did'nt used a corning gorilla glass on that ips! ouch! what a waste of budget! i now cannot enjoy using this not too much expensive phone! so sad!!!
Why MOTO G runs fast and does no lag??
1.Moto has premium qualcom snapdragon 400 chipset, qualcom adreno Gpu, 1.2 ghz quadcore cortex A7 cpu architecture
2.moto G uses vanilla android that is pure android.motorola hv not customized the android os.they r providing the pure or vanilla android..and pure android is always best in performance. .generally, google handed over the pure android os to manufacturers, and they give the os their own look, add own apps, bloatwares..if it is not customized well, then phone performs bad...
Another thing, MOTOROLA is a google owened companyl.so google will provide every new os upgrades to moto G...as they used to provide in their very own NEXUS devices

So I suggest you to ensure that whether your phone screen is off or not during calling..there r many options appear when we cannected to a call like "MUTE"...option..maybe some buttons r pressed by your ear accidentally during calling
Otherwise, the mike of your phone is damaged..replace the mike
Alvin, 04 Aug 2014Hlo frnds. Please tell me that the core 2 is best phone or not.. And plz sugg... more1.If want hd video recording and playback then dont buy

3.if u want your phone to run your fast till u sell it...then dont buy it..coz core2 will slow after some months of use..as it has cheap hardwares
4.if u love to hv new android os updates on your phone, then dont buy it.bcoz samsung does not provide updates to their low end phones
5.if u r in weak signal area, then dont buy it..
6.if u want good sound, then dont buy it..for sound sony phones r superb
7.it has only 768 mb ram...we can say it that core2 has 512 mb ram..becoz atleast 250 mb ram will be occupied by the android system. .and 512 mb is
8.it does not hv proximity. .so u r going to face problems during calling
..now let me why u should buy it
1.if u want a big display ..then buy it..(but quality is ordinary..it is not going to amaze you..if u want to b stunned by display quality, then go for motoG)
2.if want decent photography in day light, then go for it...but video recording id poor
3.i love the design...do u???
4.the availability of accessories for Samsung phoenes is great. ..
5.if u want this phone for basic features like some light gaming, calling, texting, net surfing, chating then go for it..u will b happy. But if u have used sony phones, then for sure u r going to b disappointed
inam, 04 Aug 2014Galaxy core II: Within few hours of usage the phone got very hot. Noticed battery drain 10% in... moreOkay...I want to give the answer of your questions. .
1.why core2 is heated too much after some use??
Answer: only one answer is galaxy core2 has very cheap spreadtrum chipset.people even hate mediatek chipset which is used in micromax, xolo, lava, karbonn etc mobiles..mediatek is regarded as a second class company.but this Spreadtrum chipset has no name..let go first class or second class,we cant even call it a 3rd class chipset...there only few mobiles which uses spreadtrum...and having a unfamiliar chipset, the chances of new upgrade r decreased...bcoz google first release os update for Snapdragon chipset..then for mediatek..after that if they will hv time..then they release updates for other chipset...being a unfamiliar chipset, future update for spreadtrum chipset is nullified.
2.why your battery drops by 10% in half hour??
This is problem is also present in galaxy core 1..this is becoz of lesser Deepsleep.....Samsung hv not optimised the kernel well for core2..thatz why Deepsleep is less.and battery drains too fast..I hv faced this problem on my core1..so I hv modified my mobile...by tweaking build.prop in system..(u can assume it Such that I hv put some command to use less battery)
Note:if u r in weak signal area like rural area...u r going to face signal problrm..coz signal reception of samsung mobiles is very bad
Galaxy core II: Within few hours of usage the phone got very hot. Noticed battery drain 10% in 1/2 hr and that too without installing a single extra app and just used out of the box. Seems to have HEATING ISSUES. Disappointed on having to head to the service center without even having used the phone for one day. Will post again the outcome. Till then i would suggest caution for others planning to buy.
Hlo frnds. Please tell me that the core 2 is best phone or not.. And plz suggest me which phone is best in this price. That is below 13000.. Rply me frnds.
I did not like the phn ... M too much problems .. Replaced one set and another still has same voice problm ... I ant hear another person voice .. Clear the sound echos ... No clarity
