Samsung announces the Galaxy Core, coming this month

0. phoneArena 06 May 2013, 03:46 posted on

Samsung simply loves to flood the market with its devices! Even if it already has a good number of models in a particular segment of the market, it'll just continue launching more and more just to make sure that the competition's offerings get lost in the sea of Samsungs...

I really cant understand the point of releasing a phone with such poor specs and this horrible look. If it looked nice, at least you could expect it to attract some people, but......

There are already phones with similar specs from Samsung.

Galaxy S2 plus: 4.3 inch WVGA, 1.2 Ghz dual core, 1 GB RAM, 8 GB memory.

Galaxy S2: 4.3 inch WVGA, 1.2 Ghz dual core, 1GB RAM, 16 GB memory.

Galaxy s3 mini: 4 inch WVGA, 1 GHz dual core, 1 GB RAM, 8 GB memory.

Galaxy s duos: 4 inch WVGA, 1 GHz dual core, 768 MB RAM, 4 GB memory.

Galaxy S advance: 4 inch WVGA, 1 GHz dual core, 768 MB RAM, 16 GB memory.

It's Samsung's method of saying "hi $uckerZ, buy the newest one and pay more for the same spec because if you want to save more by buying older models, you wont get software updates."

Yeah, that's why when choosing a Samsung Galaxy phone will give you a headache, their Galaxy phones have similar designs and similar specs.

Samsung is Apple wannabe.

I think they already exceeded Apple by leaps and bounds in terms of recycling. Apple recycles the design, but all of them are flagship models; Nokia recycles the N9 design but also reserved for flagship models. Samsung? They recycle it from $200 phones to $700 phones. =.=
Open GSMarena's database of phones for Samsung and you are greeted by a full page of similar looking phones.

Wow no thank you, I'm not going to GSMarena's or PhoneArena's database of Samsung phones cuz it's gonna be a NIGHTMARE OF FREAKIN' GALAXIES!

It's like hypnotizing you to buy a Samsung Galaxy! So, nuh-uh, no thank you! :)

LOL!!

And unlike the iRetards, Sammy believes in giving their consumers options across various demographics and price points. Not everyone can afford my Galaxy Note 2 at Full Verizon retail; this is a great option for the have-nots or people who simply don't want to spend $700+ on a SUPER SMARTPHONE (like my G-Note 2)!!

+1 for you!!

LOL Samsung is not even trying any more on design.

They should have made this phone as small as possible with the same specs.
Very thin, lightweight, with very small bezel on top and bottom.
Better screen to phone ratio than the SGS4 would have been very cool

hurr durr MUH BEZELS

enjoy your fingers covering the screen when you hold your phone dumbass

34. BadAssAbe (Posts: 434; Member since: 22 Apr 2011)


Yeah because right now my fingers never cover the screen when I text or play games - Sarcastic

Less bezel means smaller phone
Smaller phone means better cases
Better cases means less broken phones

the problem is Samsung fans that they buy anything Samsung same as apple fans so Samsung say why waste time changing and innovating anything just make anything and put anything in it they will buy it. thats why Samsung will never change if the Samsung fans don;t stand up to Samsung and make statement. samsung fans you making Samsung lazy as hell

27. Volcra (Posts: 20; Member since: 16 Mar 2013)


why? this is a low-mid range device were you hoping to get high end specs and features in them? Samsung is merely offering a range of devices for people to choose from, not everyone is able to afford the best phones in the world. Samsung is putting forth all their innovation into their flagship phones i.e the features on the s4, though it may not have the best build quality, there are definitely a lot of innovation going into the software. Software becomes one of the many vital selling point in the consumer world nowadays because many high end phones have the same specs.

It's not the problem about the low-mid range, the problem is the design and the material! I mean, can't Samsung make it more pleasing to the eye, instead of making the same design and same old cheap material?

Even the entry-level Nokia Lumia 520 looks and feels better than this Galaxy Core!

Please don't purchase Galaxy core set.there is some issue in this model.
I am sharing my experience,coz other customer should not suffer with this set.

I purchased Galaxy core duo mobile two days back from Sangeeth mobile store in Bangalore . Withing one day i was facing heating issue in the set. I went to Samsung Service center got a defect letter and got replaced new Galaxy core set.

This new piece also having same issue.

I lost my hopes on this model.I cant take back my money i think. but want to go for some other set, other then Samsung.
