Samsung is its own competitor now. With a slew of smartphones ruling the roost in the mobile world, Samsung is now set to unleash a power-packed bomb to knock off the Samsung Galaxy S4. While the Galaxy S4 is creating splashes in terms of popularity and features, the Galaxy Core might soon make the S4 a relic from the past. Why just this? The Samsung Galaxy Core is no bank breaker either!
The Core seems impressive with a 4.3-inch display and 800 x 480 resolution. A 1.2GHz dual-core processor will pump life into the Core clubbed with 768MB RAM and 8GB internal storage. The 5-MP shutter is a fair bet given that the Galaxy Core is no high-end model. Add to this TouchWiz overlay on an Android 4.1 Jelly Bean platform—and we know the Core is set to breathe down S4’s neck.
With GPS, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, connectivity would be breeze on the Galaxy core. Despite flashbacks of Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini and Galaxy S2 Plus cropping up in mind when I visualize the Core design, this is going to be a hassle-free smartphone that stands tall against the giant called S4.… Read the rest
Samsung Galaxy S3 mini has gone into a pre-installation phase where it is getting Android 4.1.2 as its OS. Till now Samsung S3 mini was about to get launched in the market with Android 4.1. But if it’s Android 4.1.2 then it means the phone would have a Samsung premium suite. This simply means that the device would come packed with features such as Page Buddy, Multi Window, Paper Artist, Group Cast, Smart Rotation etc.
Samsung S3 mini is creating quite a stir in the market. It was recently in the news when Apple withdrew its case against Samsung on the pretext that Samsung Galaxy S3 won’t be sold in the U.S but mini can.
Samsung had hinted recently about it, and finally it’s here – the Galaxy S3 Mini. According to the company, it’s an alternative for folks looking for a compact smartphone for practical purposes. For some who found the Galaxy S3 far too big to carry around like a regular phone, Samsung decided to create something similar, albeit in a tinier package. So, is it just the screen size that got smaller in the Mini version of the Galaxy S3?
It’s a great strategic move on Samsung’s part to come up with a smaller sized Galaxy S3. The 4 inch touchscreen offers direct competition to the iPhone and is aimed at pulling people away from Apple’s offering. It looks quite similar to the Galaxy S3, but in a smaller package, and even runs on Android Jelly Bean with Samsung’s own TouchWiz user interface.
The S3 mini is powered by a mere 1GHz dual-core processor, a huge step down from its big brother. Even the RAM has been cut in half, but that’s understandable. Its battery is just 1500 mAh and the S3 Mini’s camera has a resolution of 5MP. But the biggest disappointment in the S3 Mini has got to be the 4 inch screen, and not because of its dimensions. A resolution of just 800X400 makes the Mini’s screen have a 233 ppi pixel density, as opposed to the Galaxy S3’s gorgeous 306 ppi screen.
With specs like these, we wonder if there’s anything especially charming enough about the S3 Mini or if it’s just another competitor in the over-crowded mid-priced Android smartphone range, which already has phones like the Galaxy Nexus, HTC One V and the Galaxy Ace 2. Apart from the S3 tag, we doubt if consumers would find anything fancy enough to buy the trimmed down version on offer.… Read the rest
