The Samsung Galaxy Core Prime was released in November 2014. This was a medium priced handset at the outset but with Samsung rolling out the new Galaxy Core Prime 4G this phone has become a serious contender in the low price market as well. Galaxy core prime is a classy looking phone with a sturdy frame that feels like anodized metal. The phone is a mere 8.8mm thick which gives it a very sleek appearance and also makes it extremely handy to carry in your pocket.
Galaxy core prime runs on Android v4.4.4 KitKat but is upgradable to Lollipop. In fact Samsung has started rolling out the Lollipop upgrade for this phone. A quad-core 1.2GHz Snapdragon 410 processor makes this a good device for multitasking. The operations are all smooth without any lag even when multiple apps are open. There is a 1 GB RAM which is slightly below the average size we are used to but this lack does not affect the overall performance immensely. Galaxy Core Prime has an 8 GB internal RAM and a 64GB microSD card slot.
The phone has a 5MP primary camera and a 2MP secondary one. Photos taken are pretty satisfactory despite the less than spectacular camera specifications. Galaxy Core Prime has a Li-Ion 2000mAh battery which can manage 13 hours of talk time with 3G and nearly 60 hours of music play. The phone is well worth the price tag attached to it.
