What We Like About Samsung Galaxy Core Prime
We particularly like the definite improvements that the new Samsung Galaxy Core Prime has from its predecessor; Galaxy Core LTE even if some of its features has been shared with the Core II. It is comforting to think that the Core Prime boasts of its 64-bit capable Snapdragon 410, not to mention the 2MP/480p shooter front-facing camera of the Core Prime. The camera upgrade of this Samsung instalment is promising, delivering the Core Prime “selfie snapper” which is a hot trend nowadays.
What We Don't Like about Samsung Galaxy Core Prime
We hate the fact that aside from the camera and selfie snapper upgrade, this Samsung Galaxy Core Prime has not much to offer. Other main disadvantages that Samsung Galaxy Core Prime includes the screen ppi being at its primordial level, the absence of screen protector, which usually comes in an addition of glass protector, and the obvious lack of brightness sensor.
Conclusion and Overall Rating
We give an average overall rating for the Samsung Galaxy Core Prime of seven over ten. This is for the reason that the camera set-up for the Samsung Galaxy Core Prime strictly follows that of the Galaxy S III and not much originality has been showcased. The prominent feature for the Core Prime is its selfie snapper feature, which is quite outstanding. The price for the Core Prime is reasonable for the features that it delivers and we recommend this mobile device for users who want to get a clean image out of their mobile camera and a neat specification so to speak.
