While its specs might not hold a candle to the S4, it does come with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, bringing Google Now and Google's Advanced Voice Search. Its dual-SIM tech also helps it stand out from other budget blowers, letting you switch between two numbers, for business and pleasure. It comes in a single-SIM variant as well, if you don't want to splash out on a second line. The Galaxy Core has a 4.3-inch screen (remember when that was considered big?), with a resolution of 480x800-pixels, so it's not going to look great next to the likes of the S4. Inside is a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, 8GB of memory, and 1GB of RAM. On imaging duties is a 5-megapixel rear camera.
The Core also pinches a few of the S4's features, Smart Stay knows when you're looking at the screen and keeps it lit until you look away, so no more prodding to keep it awake, Smart Alert lets you know about missed calls and messages as soon as you pick up the handset, Thanks to Motion UI, you can activate common functions like refresh or mute just by waving pursuit case for apple iphone x and xs - black/clear your hand, You can also speak to control the phone using S Voice, The dual-SIM version of the Galaxy Core will be out this month, with the single-SIM following in July..
Take a Samsung handset to a pool party, and you'll have a lot more fun than your iPhone-owning fuddy-duddy parents. That's according to Samsung's latest ad for the S4, anyway. What do you reckon of the Core? Are there better budget Jelly Bean blowers out there? Let me know in the comments, or on our Facebook page. A new Samsung handset brings Jelly Bean on a budget, as well as the option of having two SIM cards. The Galaxy S4 only recently hit shop shelves, and now Samsung has followed it up with a low-end alternative, the Galaxy Core. The phone leaked a couple of weeks ago, but has only just been made official.
But still, does it really need to keep flinging mud at the opposition? Didn't it learn anything from Microsoft's latest advert for Windows Phone 8?, The place: a pool party after high school graduation, The concept: everyone's out having a good time, using their smart phones to stay in touch and take pictures, Except there are a few things the Galaxy pursuit case for apple iphone x and xs - black/clear S4 can do that the iPhone can't, When one graduate belly flops into the pool in full cap and gown, someone captures every stage of the jump on their S4, When someone's eating ribs and their phone goes, they answer by waving their hand over the handset, instead of getting sauce all over the screen, (Of course this only works if your phone is on the table, and not in your pocket.) Photos are transferred between S4s by touching the handsets' backs (something ribbed pretty well in the Microsoft ad, I might add), And someone uses the S4 to control the TV..
"So some smart phones are smarter than other smart phones," one elderly iPhone-owner says, sounding like a mouthpiece for Samsung's marketing department. "What are we doing with these phones?"Samsung is obviously keen to big up all its new software gubbins for the S4, but I think sticking to its 'iPhones are for old fogies' line is a bit of a mistake. Especially considering the huge sales the S3 and S2 enjoyed, I'm sure there's a fair share of more mature phone users owning a Samsung Galaxy. And what's so bad about using the same phone as someone older, anyway? Surely it's a good sign, if a handset is so simple to use it's not restricted to a coterie of hardcore fans.
