Samsung Galaxy Core Preview

Them Samsung phones just keep on coming! Here's one of the latest members of the gang – the Samsung Galaxy Core, which is a fairly priced Android model available in both single- and dual-SIM flavors. Priced at about $300 off contract, it doesn't really have much to impress with. A quick run down its specs sheet shows that it comes with a 4.3-inch screen, 5MP camera, and a 1.2GHz dual-core processor. Android 4.1 Jelly Bean – heavily skinned by Samsung – comes pre-loaded onto the device. So yes, it looks like there's nothing that the Samsung Galaxy Core has to surprise us with, yet we are definitely going to give it a chance anyway. Read on as we take an almost final Galaxy Core prototype unit for a preview.

You fail to see the point in this preview.... The Point in this review is that their is no point in this phone... Samsung has 3 other devices that fall under this same exact category and are priced the same. I mean some of you say that this site is biased towards samsung....some say it is biased against samsung...why the hell can't you guys realize that every reviewer is baised and there is nothing wrong with being biased...All reviewers have a phone that they prefer and if a phone they are reviewing doesn't meet up to the standard of the phone they prefer, no matter the grade, then so be it... I don't care for the tonality of the review because most of the time the review covers valid points even if the disposition is negative. You all make it seem wrong that these reviewers are fans of particular brands and OEMs too...
