Samsung Galaxy Core 2 Duos Review: Low RAM, Poor Performance and its still Overpriced

By on Email @exolete

With just 768 MB RAM, the Galaxy Core 2 Duos stutters in even basic day-to-day tasks. The UI lags, gameplay is poor and apps take quite a while to load up. Moreover, this is one of the worst displays I have seen in a long time, the colors are just blinding, abysmal viewing angles and everything looks artificial on it. Moreover, Samsung's over-bloated TouchWiz runs like molasses on the Core 2 Duos. You would be better off buying the Zenfone 5 or the Moto G 2nd Gen.

6.4

The Core 2 Duos is not an upgrade over the previous-gen, its a worse implementation with a horrendous display and over-bloated TouchWiz interface.
