With the Smart Stay feature , you can go hands-free without having to worry about the screen going off while the movie has caught on the peak of your interest.

Also, it lets you know what has been happening since you've been gone as soon as you pick up your phone. The Samsung Galaxy Core I8262 is a smartphone in the true sense as it gives you a brief vibrating nudge to inform you about missed calls, new messages and other notifications. This makes it easier for you to track things that you might have missed while you were busy. The Motion UX function allows the phone to link the regular task you perform with the gestures that you make with the phone. So when you turn the phone over it goes into the mute mode, shake the phone and it will automatically update its content and more. Its dual SIM feature is also useful when you are travelling and need to utilize a local SIM card for better connectivity.

Customer Questions & Answers

Customer Reviews on Samsung Galaxy Core GT-I8262 Mobile Phone

Top Customer Reviews

Samsung Galaxy Core is a budget 1GB ram device from samsung released in June 2013. It was a decent device when it was launched,but now,for the price you can get far better devices.

Display : 480 x 800 pixels, 4.3 inches ie only 217 ppi. The screen brightness is not that great,which means it is very difficult to see the screen under sunlight. The viewing angles are good.There is also no light sensor which means Auto brightness feature is not there.

Processor : Dual-core 1.2 GHz Cortex-A5 processor. This is no powerhouse Good enough for your day to day tasks,but lags behind the quadcore processors coming with similarly priced devices like Canvas Magnus, Turbo Mini,Xolo Q Series, Moto G etc.

Antutu Benchmark : 7470 ( For a comparison to show how low the performance is, Xolo Q700 scores - 13000, Micromax Turbo Mini - 17000 )

Camera : 5 MP , the image quality is not that great. It can't even record 720P HD videos while even many under Rs 8000 devices are able to.

Operating System : Samsung TouchwizUI on top of old Android 4.1 Jellybean.

Battery : 1800mAh. This is NOT good enough to take you through one day of moderate use (with internet on). Cheaper Xolo Q700 priced at Rs 8500 ships with a 2400mAh one is to be noted.

Verdict : Galaxy Core is not a value for money device in my opinion, as many other devices coming at this price ships with far better performing components and newer Android version. Buy this only if you want a 'branded' budget device and are ok with the issues it comes with.

Received the phone but the microphone was not working. However, Amazon's refund policy and customer care are great so I got full refund without any hassle.
