Samsung Galaxy Core 2 Review

Core II—In Comparison:

Among the recently manufactured smartphones belonging to different Samsung families, the new Core II version enjoys some advantages over its siblings. For example, in Star 2 and Young 2 Galaxy phones, the secondary camera is totally absent from the scene while the display size isn’t more than 3 ½ inches. In Core II, on the other hand, you not only have a much advanced primary camera, but also there is a secondary shooter, given on the front. The display size has also been at least by an inch, measuring 4 ½ inches as well as the enhanced resolution will render an extra pleasing view for videos, gaming and other things. Talking of processing potential, it has been increased by even more than 4 times in comparison with the CPU specs of Star 2. Turning to memory, it is just amazing as in addition to the 4 GBs of internal storage, you can also avail the option of micro SD card with upto 64 GB of capacity. Regarding networking and connectivity, the gadget not only boasts of its dual SIM support but also features 3G mobile phone communication standards. Consequently, if you want to go for this advanced member of the Samsung family, you must also be prepared to pay comparatively higher Samsung Galaxy Core II price in Pakistan.

Slimmer, Smarter & Larger:

Despite the fact that the handset carries a sufficiently large 4.5 inches display, it measure as thin as 9.8 mm, and the weight is also merely 138 mm. On one hand, the slim and smart body of the gadget adds to the ease of its workability as you can grip it firmly in your hand and go on working on it for as long as you want. On the other hand, the lightweight makes a significant contribution to its portability, so the users will easily be carrying it either in their hand or in the pocket. At the same time, its larger TFT capacitive touchscreen is furnished with 16 million colors and supports the resolution of 480 x 800 pixels. No doubt, such things do not give the mobile phone an extraordinary feel, but they do make it a standard smartphone, thus inspiring the Samsung fans to buy Samsung Galaxy Core II.

Surplus Memory and Super Quad Core Processing:

In the modern era of intense competition where time has got some extra importance, everyone strives to save as many moments as they can. So, when someone is busy in doing an urgent piece of work and, meanwhile, they have to process some apps on their smartphone, they will suffer from much panic if their smartphone doesn’t perform the task quickly. On the contrary, the practice can be made very pleasing simply by availing a device like the new Samsung Galaxy Core II that is based on a quad core processor running at the speed of 1.2 GHz. Concerning the memory options, there are 768 MBs of random access memory and 4 GB built-in data accommodation capacity. In case, you run short of the storage space, just supplement it with additional 64 GB by inserting a micro SD card into the card-slot given therein.

Bottom Line:

Owing to its cutting edge features the latest Core II release, from the house of Samsung, can be grouped among the best smartphones of the age. The most prominent specs standards include 1.2 GHz CPU, sixty-four gigabytes of external storage, dual SIM & 3G networking, large pleasant display, 2000 mAh Li-ion battery, and so on. Among its shortcomings, you can list the absence of chipset and GPU, low quality secondary camera and lack of support for the latest 4th generation communication standard. Anyhow, all these deficiencies will count little when you have a look at its grandiose features and reasonable Samsung Galaxy Core II price. After going through all the pluses and negatives of the phone in hand, as discussed above, you must be in a better position regarding its purchase.
