Looking for a phone that gives you a nice balanced blend of power, performance and good looks? The Core from Samsung’s Galaxy range is a smartphone that hides power beneath its smart exterior.

Power Packed Performance

The 1.2 GHz dual core processor on the smartphone, along with 1 GB RAM, ensures that you have the hardware for superb speed which will help you multitask, browse and use every application without lag, seamlessly.

Smart Stay

Intuitive by nature, the Galaxy Core comes with Smart Stay that ensures that the screen does not dim when you are looking at ensuring that you can keep reading or viewing content even when you are handsfree.

Smart Alert

This nifty feature on the smartphone bundles all the notifications that you might have missed when you were not paying attention, helping you prioritize on who and what to answer to first – you will never miss another call or text or tag.

Motion UX

The simple motion controls built into the phone enable you to make full use of frequently used actions into a functionality - turning the phone over will put it on mute.

Smart Dual SIM

With support for two SIMs, the Core is smart in the way it handles the connections  - you can still receive calls on SIM2 and check out who is trying to contact you when you are talking to Mom on SIM1.

Smart Services

Everything you need from a smartphone to keep you entertained – e-books, social networking, games, news, navigation during travel – you name it, the Core has it. Simple and easy to use without any kind of compromise on speed, the Core helps you take smartphone usage to another level.

A Good Phone.

It is a very good phone, almost all expert reviews says it. I dont understand why people compare it to other while writing reviews.
Focus on the phone's performance.
1. 1.2 GHz Dual core gives good performance to work, but large Games will lag.
2. 1GB RAM is a good deal when it comes to gaming and running applications.
3. Screen Size is good, lower than Grand, but high than S Duos.
4. Resolution is good, but not for Games.
5. 5MP cam is also good, people who say its very low, excuse plea...

My Reviews about Samsung Galaxy Core

I have purchased this phone last Wednesday i.e. 31.07.2013. The first day of purchase was gone exploring the various features of the phone. Though I am not a tech geek in the real sense of the term, yet I say that this phone is surely overpriced, given the varieties available today. I should have been ideally priced between Rs. 13,000/= to Rs. 14,000/= given the configuration standards of today, or even a little less. Its display is good, and the screen respond to touches well. Internet surfi...

Looks good on paper, but not at all good in real scenario..Not recommended

First of all I am veryyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy much happy with the service of Flipkart.....You people should manufacture your own product!!!

About Phone.................
I am using this phone for last 15 days...The phone has 1.2 GHz dual core processor coupled with Adreno 203 graphics unit & 1GB RAM which looks good on paper, but not at all good in real scenario . I am very much disappointed when I see my friend is playing Subway Surfers/ Temple Runner flawlessly with his I-ball..Could u imagine .....

Awesome Phone for the price point

I have been using this phone for about 2 weeks now. This phone is too good for the price.

Call Quality: After all you buy a phone for this main point and yes this phone does not disappoint. Reception is good and calls are very clear and even the other person can hear us clearly.

Display: Very vivid. Good viewing angles too. 35% brightness is more than enough for indoors. Colors are very natural. But outdoor viewing is bad, I would not say worst but bad. You need to increase the brightness m...

Best in the class

For those noobs saying that Galaxy S Advance, Ace 3, and Core are the same, you guys don't know technology. The main difference is the android version core runs on jelly bean and s advance is ginger bread. Android jelly bean is better than ginger bread in every possible way, UI, memory management, etc.
-Core is the only device in its price range (i.e. Less than 15k INR) that has 4.3 inch screen. Screen dimensions matter quite a lot.
-Smart phones should have enough battery for 18 hours ...

you just cant buy S4 at this price

well from the price perspective and mid range users this is just the most perfect phone one cal ever have.
this phone does not lag at all on normal usage. with heavy usage there is a slight lag especially while playing games like subway surfers. the other games seems to be running just fine.
battery backup is again good as it lasts from one full day and more with normal usage
the camera is amazing and captures crisp images

If you want a phone around 13 to 15k , All you have to decide what color you want with the core, white or Metallic Grey . Its such a good phone

Samsung has stopped selling Hardware and it is now
selling Software ....
Did you all see the S4 release, Samsung presented all
the cool features of the phone, It is so feature rich
and at the end of the presentation they showed a
slide with the phones processor and stuff ....

At the end of the day Software uses the Hardware
and we use the software and the way Samsung adopted
android and with their touch wiz UI is simply amazing

Reasons why you should buy Samsung over Micromax...
1. S...
