Samsung Galaxy Core Plus Review

The South Korean innovator of smartphones came forth with yet another exciting variation in the handset: Samsung Galaxy Core Plus. The manufacturers have combined luxury and technology with convenience and affordability. The pocket-friendly gadget offers the satisfaction of an admirable performance in terms of Jelly Bean OS 4.2 and a dual core 1.2 GHz CPU. Dual SIM functionality, 1800 mAh battery Lithium-ion battery and a 5MP shooter perfectly serve the needs of today’s users. In addition, a low Samsung Galaxy Core Plus price further helps the gadget in beating its rivals and attracting potential buyers.

Design—the First Impression:

A Low Samsung Galaxy Core Plus price in Pakistan brings to mind the image of a flimsy, low-end smartphone made up of cheap materials. However, SGCP does not remotely look cheap. It is quite decent with a polycarbonate body that gives the look of a more durable metal frame. The rear is smooth and glossy while the front consists of 4.3 inches of glass screen. The total length of the smartphone extends to 5.11 inches. At the top, the secondary camera lens can be seen. On the other hand, Home, Return and Menu buttons sit on the bezel below the screen just as is the case with most regular phone designs.

A thickness of 9.55 mm might not be ideal for admirers of sleek designs, but it does impart certain sturdiness to the phone which would have looked flimsy and fragile otherwise. Overall, all the dimensions of this model favor portability and make it really convenient to carry on the go.

This elegant-looking device is available in sophisticated white and mysterious black colors in addition to a lovely pink.

Display and Multimedia Experience:

The multimedia experience is decent enough with 4.3 inches of space for videos, gaming and internet browsing. Clarity is defined by an average resolution of 480 by 800 pixels with a rather pleasing pixel density of 217 PPI. Furthermore, the vividness is actually breathtaking owing to 16M colors splashing the entire spectrum of colors on the screen.

TouchWiz user interface also makes the display more pleasing due to its colorful appearance. It is the second version of TouchWiz, which is more improved with enhanced sophistication.

Driving Mode and Smart Stay:

Among all of TouchWiz advanced features here, Driving Mode and Smart Stay are definitely worth mentioning. The former lets you drive safely and carefree as information about your incoming calls and other notifications is announced loudly. You can then answer your important calls through the phone’s hands-free and respond to urgent messages if required. On the other hand, Smart Stay is also an innovative feature which keeps the screen illuminated while you are still looking at it. This is particularly useful for e-reading or when you are checking your newsfeed on Facebook.

Broadcom and VideoCore Performance:

The phone runs with the power of Broadcom’s dual-core processor. The optimum performance takes the speeds up to 1.2 GHz. In addition, VideoCore IV GPU supports the CPU and leads to a commendable functionality. This GPU model is quite close to the top-notch performance of Mali 400 by ARM.

Shooting and Video-Chatting Experience:

The phone’s two cameras allow photo shooting as well as video chatting. For photography, both the front VGA camera and the rear 5MP lens are at your service. The primary camera works with the support of autofocus, touch-focus and LED flash. Moreover, it brings the clarity of 2592 by 1944 pixel resolution to the final results. You can also maintain your albums by geo-tagging each individual picture. Video can also be captured at 720p.

The front cam has a rather low resolution and is mostly meant for self-photography. It also enables video-chatting which is its most important function.


The max storage capacity offered by the phone is 4GB. It seems low, but the 64 GB memory card slot makes up for it. On the other hand, battery life is more satisfying as the 1800 mAh power storage allows eight hours of video playback and a whopping forty hours of music playback time.

Internet connectivity options are HSDPA as well as Wi-Fi, including Wi-Fi Direct and Wi-Fi Hotspot functionality.

Overall, the gadget is very satisfying. Specially, the reasonable cost is a big pro. Buyers who select this phone will have only very little to complain about.
