Samsung Galaxy Core – a mediocre ranged smartphone is available in the market in two variants having a little difference in the connectivity SIM slots. Galaxy Core Duos comes with dual SIM slots, which has its priced slightly higher than its single SIM variant.

It holds 1 GB RAM and 1800 mAh battery. Android 4.1 serves as the software of this phone. South Koreans have managed to equip in many good featured in this phone to compete with the phones like Micromax Canvas HD.
Looks and Build
Well Samsung is giving a same design factor in all its Galaxy smartphones. This phone is bar shaped like others with curved edges. The aluminum colored plastic strip surrounds all the sides of this phone. This phone constitutes its front to have the 4.3 inches display.
Above the display, there is a VGA camera and sensors like light sensor and proximity sensor. The lower portion has the one physical round key – Home key with menu and return keys on its left and right sides respectively.
The top has the 3.5 mm audio connectivity jack and the bottom side has the microUSB port, which has use of making connectivity with PC or charging the smartphone.
Glossy plastic has been used in the rear of the device, which gives it a very cheap look. Top of the rear side has the 5 MP snapper with speakers grill and LED flash on its either side.
Left side has the Volume Rocker keys and the right side has the Power on/off key. SO each and every button is placed at the same side of most of the handsets in galaxy series.
It sports 4.3 inches capacitive TFT display. WVGA resolution is packed up in this device which 480 x 800 pixels with around 217 ppi pixel density. The screen is okay but is nothing when compared directly to the AMOLED and Super AMOLED Samsung displays.
Galaxy S4 Mini has been equipped with Amoled, but we should not fairly compare the two displays as there is price difference also.
This smartphone is fueled in with 5 MP rear camera, which is able to capture images in 2560 x 1920 pixels. The camera interface is very familiar and is same as that of Galaxy S3. It captures good quality videos.
Overall I found the camera very decent. Have a look on the video sample of this device. The front camera is VGA type.

This smartphone has the SnapDragon S4 Play chipset which works on 1.2 GHz. Adreno 203 is the GPU of this device. It has the software power of Android v4.1.2 Jelly Bean.
Core has 1800 mAh battery. Due to dual standby backup of Galaxy Core Duos, the battery drains out little faster. Despite of that, this handset offers you talk time 3G backup of 12 Hours.
7 hours can be spent on this phone during web browsing. Music play also runs the handset nearly 6 hours.
