I've had my Core LTE for over 4 years now, and l Iove it. I'm on my second battery for it. I tried going to a current smartphone (2020), but all the app-cr*p gave me a migraine, so I took it back 2 days later.
If I have to replace this baby due to damage, I'll get another of the same if I can, or go ~down~ to a flip-phone - I want a ~phone~, not a do-all gadget. When I can have a Tablet that can do this kinda phone contact (not VoiP) I'll go up, but not until then.
kordidlus, 02 Dec 2016this phone sucks it has no loud speakerI don't know what is meant by "no loud speaker." My phone has a speaker and I use it all the time. The only time I would hold the phone to my ear is if I make a call while in public and want privacy.
Hi. Can someone help me how to update from jelly bean to kitkat version? Thanks
You have to go to my device in setting and look under system updates to fix that issue..........anyway this phone my father currently has this phone he is 53 turning 54 and enjoys this phone quite a bit he has dropped it many times without a case and it has not broken once he's also spilt water and food on it (like chile, soup, beans, etc ) and has never broken down I would say its quite a great phone if you have young children ( 10, 11,12 ,etc ) that want cellphones for the first time this would probably be the one for them.
I have been using Galaxy Core LTE for a year so I will write in short good and bad things about this phone. I bought it because it was cheap and supported 4G.
1. DESIGN - nice round shape which I like with silver aluminium edge wich keeps the phones undamaged when falls
2. PRICE - cheapest among similar phones at the time I bought it
3. CAMERA - I never use camera so much but for a 5MPX this one really surprised me with quality of photos and amazing Macro Zoom feature
1. CORE - Ironically. This phone is fast when you have and use very few essential apps but if you want harder tasks with plenty apps just forget it. It has his limit which is low and if you force it the phone will become so slow and you'll need to delete and disable apps to make it work smooth again
2. BATTERY - For 6 months battery did well. I managed to play games and surf for many hours but after that battery started to die early. Just after few hours of gaming or surfing. One thing I never realized what meant is that Cell Standby was biggest spender of battery since the beggining topping the list with 70-80% always. No mather what I did, playing games entire day or not using the phone entire day
So I would recommend it to people who don't play games often or don't need a lot of apps but still like to surf on 4G and shoot a nice photo here and there and all that for nice price.
I have a samsung prime co lte phone.During updating of system it could not reboot.Though I had restarted it continues to give the same response.Can you help me?
Blue Chan, how do i update from 4.2.2. to 4.4.2? I tried with automatic actualization but nothing happens like it is up to date.
Griffin, 16 Nov 2015But install when needed and then delete...Don't bother installing it, using it and then deleting it.. Simply install an first generation APP of theirs that is still updated before CM became the bloat/adware monster it is today. Install CM Speed Booster, which puts to sleep memory hog APP which aren't being used but still hog memory. It has a built in junk cleaner. With the Core's 1/1.5 Gb ram, having an APP to free up as much RAM as possible is a very good idea.
Anonymous, 07 Aug 2015I recommend Clean Master. It helps towards cleaning your junkClean Master by CM isn't as great as it claims to be. First off it is bloatware and comes with a lot of unwanted hidden surprises. Secondly if you root your phone and give Clean Master root access, you might as well throw your phone away as Clean Master's suggestions to clean unwanted stuff it claims was unwanted ended up bricking my phone. I lost all basic functions including making out bound calls. I could receive calls but I couldn't make any. In the end I had to grab a 3rd party version of 4.2.2 and loaded that into my phone to get function back.
There is an APP of theirs that does the same job as Clean Master. An older APP which is not advertised as part of their new CM family, but it is written/owned by them. Look for and install, "CM Speed Booster"... it has ZERO bloatware, no ads and software suggestions. Though it was meant to make phones go faster when they are lagging, it also has a built in junk cleaner which only cleans junk files and does not touch system IDK and APK files. Unlike Clean Master which suggests some IDK files are not used because nothing accessed them according to their database and not actual usage.
CM Speed Booster works by putting memory hog and not in use APP's into sleep mode to keep them from stealing focus and sucking battery power. Also it frees RAM so your phone works faster and it cleans junk left behind by other APP's. It is no longer suggested by the rest of the CM family because it has no bloatware, no ads and no suggestions, but it is still updated regularly.
Isabel, 05 Sep 2015How to transfer pictures from the cell to my laptop??? I already tried to connect the cable b... moreWhat o/s are you running on the laptop? The old Samsung Kies 2/3 program is no longer used by Samsung to interface with their devices. The new program is called, "Smart Switch", and it also installs the required Samsung USB drivers when the program installs.
Anonymous, 20 Dec 2015Are batteries still available for this model?Yes, but oddly enough they tend to be very expensive. The more uncommon or less purchased model any phone is, the more expensive their replacement batteries are. My last phone the 3rd party batteries were as low as $4 CAD. My current Core LTE... the average 3rd party battery price is $20 CAD.
But I did find a solution, evidently the EB-L1L7LLU battery which was meant for the Samsung Galaxy Core Duos can be used to replace the Samsung Galaxy Core LTE's EB-L1L7LLA. The Galaxy Core Duos is a dual SIM card version of the Galaxy Core LTE and their batteries are as low as $9 CAD.
Anonymous, 27 Jul 2015I can't find the radio app anywhere yet the article states it has oneThe Radio portion of this phone isn't an actual AM/FM radio you can listen to broadcasts on. It means the phone can send and receive radio signals for wireless RF devices like the latest mobile phone controlled RC toys (helicopters, cars, boats etc... ).
xTNTGamingx, 13 Jan 2016Hello,Android 4.2.2 is upgradeable to 4.4.2 kitkat on this samsung?Yes, I am running 4.4.2. The phone initially came with 4.2.2 but after an update I am now running 4.4.2.
