It is a very good phone, almost all expert reviews says it. I dont understand why people compare it to other while writing reviews.nFocus on the phone's performance.n1. 1.2 GHz Dual core gives good performance to work, but large Games will lag.n2. 1GB RAM is a good deal when it comes to gaming and running applications.n3. Screen Size is good, lower than Grand, but high than S Duos.n4. Resolution is good, but not for Games.n5. 5MP cam is also good, people who say its very low, excuse please, if you want to take professional quality photos, have a CAM. Still Photo quality is very nice.n6. Interface is good.n7. Android Jelly Bean 4.1 is amazing.n8. Have accelerometer and Compass.n9. Phone turns off screen when user is not viewing it, thus saves battery.n10. 1800 mah battery is better than nokia lumia's 1300 mah even.n11. Front cam also there.nnI have found the phone good. But if you want more, spend some more bucks and buy and samsung galaxy S4, and compare that with all other phones.nnPrice is a issue, it shud have been placed around 8000, in 13000 or more, samsung shud give Super Amolded display, Quad core, and Adreno 305.

I haave seen a lot of reviews world wide for this phone on youtube .mostly were positive even by experts . most of the people who criticize are probably comparing it with micromax , xolo , karbonn specifications . obviously these companies will have to sell cheap as they cannot demand a higher price.moreover they are re branded Chinese phones . there were reports in the US that china is using these phones to put millions of Indians secretly under surveillance. n there was a similar scene of comparison when galaxy grand was introduced . as well all know the grand is still selling like hot cakes. no one here talks about brand value , pride of ownership and after sales service .i owned a karbonn for a while . though it was a good phone i was still hesitant to show it to people. indian cos are improving but the fact remains they are copycats and still have a long way to go to match word class standards .some specifications are neglected like touchwiz for e.g . those who use it swear by it. not all qualities are measurable . a cortex processor ( in most indian phones ) is no match for samsung or qualcomm processors . all people do is compare displays ,ram, battery size , processor hz , no of cores etc. they are even probably paid by all these indian cos to write negatively here . i feel for the price it is a decent quality phone . others are entitled to their opinions .nnGot this for my dad. For the price its a steal with decent performance. Got a really good deal and was delivered in less than 48 hrs by flipkart . Amzing
If you want to spend around 13000 rupees to buy a mobile that restarts unpredictably then this is the right mobile for you!!! nnWithin 24 hours of buying this mobile, I found that this mobile is having problem, it restarts on its own and it was unpredictable. I went to service centre to get a replacement, as I was told that within 7 days after buying if there is any problem, we will replace the mobile. What I found at the service center was that there few more costumers with galaxy core, who bought the phone in last 2-3 days, they all had the same problem. This means that the problem was not only with my cell phone, it was a large scale error made by samsung. I suspect that this might be the reason why core was not available in my city for some days.nnSo, service centre will not give you replacement on the spot, even if you go there after one hour of buying. It is complete waste of money and time. nnNote: I gave it 1 rating because, there is no negative rating option available, and I have to compulsorily rate the product to post my feedback.
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 surfing is decent. I am not an avid gamer, but most of the games can be played well. Accepts all kinds of messages and can be opened without any glitches. However, one major negative aspect is what I am constrained to point out is that for a mobile of this configuration, one 1800 mAh battery? It should have been ideally at least 2100mAH one. I fail to appreciate why such miserly treatment in case of battery configuration. Most smartphones, on account of a larger screen space consumes more battery within a short time. Hence, it should have been systemically programmed to consume less energy and, moreover, the higher configuration battery should have been ideally inserted, this should have solved many issues with this model. All the prospective purchasers, I would suggest to be careful about battery issues of this mobile. The other aspects might be okay. But battery is woefully weak, since it sucks energy just like parched lands take to water. No amount of battery doctoring have helped. So be careful about this battery issues. Otherwise, it has a decent display, a decent interface, good workability, decent gaming capabilities, editing documents, and miscellaneous office work is truly a breeze. But being left in the lurch, with mobile switched off during peak hours in the evening (since after whole night of charging you have gone out for work at 9 am in the morning and is not slated to return before 9 pm at least, and the mobile has gone off at around 6 pm and you are not amongst those who carries a power bank with you) is surely a turn off factor. It claims to have a battery life of around 9 hours, but for heavy users like me, the first day itself, after charging the battery fully, I got not more than 3 hours. Folks, I must say that the energy consumption is an issue. Lastly, the looks department disappoints. My early mobile was E-63, so being used to using a mobile phone with such a solid build quality, this type of looks surely sucks, poor bland cheap plastic, with a little glossy look. One aspect, Samsung should consider giving the flip cover for free for all models above Rs. 14,000/= and shall make available flip covers for all smartphone models costing less, with such flip cover be sold at a nominal price. Such flip covers are essential for protecting the phone, since the surface of display requires it to be protected with care (much more care is needed than you take for your beautiful, rather sizzlingly beautiful wife), since none of these models comes with Gorilla Glass, and, hence, scratches (notwithstanding scratch guard) will be imminent, sans a screen guard and a flip cover. So folks since the same is not being supplied gratis, make sure you buy, even if the same is of a cheaper variety, it is required to keep the display life of the phone intact. 1GB RAM is decent for a phone of this configuration. In my opinion, those who look for frills (though I did not exactly looked for it, for my choice of Lumia 720, but I made the mistake of going for the slight price difference and opted for this model, I personally did not like Lumia 62, and, hence this choice), in addition to utility, this is the right phone, notwithstanding the woeful battery deficiency, but those who looks for quality - build quality, superior sound, and stable performance even after years of usage (even though users today buy mobile phones at the drop of a hat), these series of phones should not be considered. But those who are frequent buyers, try this one, this will at least not disappoint you and shall keep you sucked with the novelty elements at least till six months after purchase, unless you are exasperated with the woeful battery. Please don't try to play online games and never games with 3D interface, since this will slow down the phone and the battery will be discharged within no time, may be within an hour. So folks be careful. Also the display glass is not of superior built, so please take care of it. I am writing this review with limited knowledge of technology, on the contrary, this review should be considered as more of an user's reaction to such device. I have merely expressed my opinion based on what I have faced using this mobile.
