The Galaxy family of Samsung is subdivided in a multitude of ranges that range from the most basic smartphones to the most advanced, with many sub-intermediate ranges between them. One terminal intermediates offered by the company is the Samsung Galaxy Core, a full midrange and interesting features at the software level.
The South Korean manufacturer has renewed this model and details of the Samsung Galaxy Core Advance are known from two months ago.. This model follows a similar line that combines a balanced technical profile with some software features, but in this case committed a much larger panel functions and accessibility interesting. We see all the differences in a comparison.
The screen is the main difference between the Core series and divide among interested users to bet on the functionality and those who prefer a wide screen. The Samsung Galaxy Core Advance equips a panel of 4.7 inches diagonally, a large size although it is within the limits of comfort. For its part, Samsung Galaxy Core has a display of 4.3 inches, a more compact and manageable size. Despite this difference, the two models share the same resolution WVGA (800 x 480 pixels) and play for the older model because it gets focus 217 dpi while the new fails to 200dpi.
Speaking of comfort, if you look at the dimensions of the two models we see that the difference in total size is minimal. Samsung is betting on the big screens, but are also getting relatively compact designs to encircle the screen to the edges as possible, which is just what they have done with the Samsung Galaxy Core Advance. The size difference is about 4 mm high and 3 mm wide, so it just will influence management. The design of the new model is also more polished and has a sleeker look thanks to the silver frame is more discreet. Another difference to note is that Samsung has opted for physical keys on the new model, while the former has a physical home button and two touch keys on the sides (menu and back).
Both equipped with a primary sensor of five megapixels with the classical functions (LED flash, autofocus, geotagging, panorama, face detector and timer) and also record video. The Samsung Galaxy Core captures VGA (640 x 480 pixels) videos, but no details about the resolution of the Samsung Galaxy Core Advance.
However, it would be a point in its favor that have raised the bar at this point and allow registration in HD720p. They also agree on the VGA front camera and Samsung have functions, but not the same. The Samsung Galaxy Core mode has Best Photo and the new model comes with Sound & Shot. The detail that makes the difference more in this section is that the Samsung Galaxy Core Advance has a physical button on the side to shoot photos and also has a voice guidance system for visually impaired users.
The multimedia profile is tied in terms of supported formats and FM radio tuner, but the Samsung Galaxy Core Advance is ahead coming with the function of sharing for Group Play and also one button recording of audio on the side.
Samsung has maintained the same configuration in the two models, which have two separate dual-core processors running at 1.2 gigahertz frequency and one GB of RAM. This combination is suitable for a mid-range smartphone and ensures smooth performance always and when not to use many applications demanding system resources in such a case could be slowed a bit. The internal memory also remains the same, with an integrated fund eight Gb and the ability to insert memory cards MicroSD 64 GB maximum.
In both cases operating system is Android, but the Samsung Galaxy Core version is 4.1 and Samsung Galaxy Core Advance is the 4.2 – there are few differences between both versions. The two can enjoy all the Google services, as well as the myriad of applications available in the store Google Play. In addition, Samsung introduces several functions as the voice wizard S voice, available in both models, and other different in each one of them.
The original Samsung Galaxy Core has a set of 1,800 milliamp s bearing a single charge up to 300 hours standby and 9 hours in use (3G). The new model integrates a stack of 2,000 milliamps to make its screen is bigger and consume more, but will have to wait for official data to compare conditions in this section.
The Samsung Galaxy Core Advance adds some points in the section of connectivity, such that its 3G connection is faster (14.4 Mbps vs 7.2 Mbps), which has Glonass GPS antenna and equipping a chip NFC. The Samsung Galaxy Core is targeted somewhat with optional dual SIM model DUOS, convenient for users to have two phone lines. Both agree the port Bluetooth, the WiFi at 2.4 Ghz, the system WiFi Hotspot, Connection microUSB plug and headphones.
