Samsung Galaxy Core Prime Technical Specifications

Display

Display Size: 4.5 inches

Display Type: Capacitive touchscreen

Screen Resolution: 480 x 800 pixels

Screen Resolution Density: 207 ppi

Screen Protection: None

The Samsung Galaxy Core Prime has a display profile that is identical to that of the Galaxy Core 2. This was rather expected since the two devices launched just a couple of months apart.

Design

Frame Dimensions: 130.8 x 67.9 x 8.8 mm

Weight: 130g

The Samsung Galaxy Core Prime has a design concept that mirrors that of the Galaxy Core 2. It is a tough affair, telling the two devices apart as the only distinction between the two is that the Core Prime is 1 mm thinner.

Performance

Operating System: Android OS, v4.4.4 (KitKat)

CPU: Quad-core 1.2 GHz Cortex-A53

RAM: 1 GB

Internal Memory: 8 GB

Micro SD: Yes, up to 64 GB

The Samsung Galaxy Core Prime is all about performance. The Core Prime features some significant upgrades that I think, make the device worth the buck.

Samsung upped the RAM from 768 MB to 1 GB and most importantly doubled the internal memory. With Applications and Games are getting enormous, the more the storage you have on your device, the better.

It is also noteworthy, to mention that the Samsung upgraded the Galaxy Core Prime to Android OS, v4.4.4 (KitKat) from the v4.4.2 (KitKat) on the Galaxy Core 2.

The Camera Profile of the Galaxy Core Prime is also updated to reflect the current consumer demands. The Galaxy Core Prime has a 2 MP Selfie camera, a massive upgrade from the 0.3 MP selfie snapper on the Samsung Galaxy Core 2.

Battery and Extras

Battery Capacity: Li-Ion 2000 mAh

The Samsung Galaxy Core Prime has a Li-Ion 2000 mAh powering it. We would have loved something slightly better than what you get with the Galaxy Core 2.

Extras

Dual SIM

Verdict

The Kenyan entry-level smartphone segment is super-competitive. Kenyans are now spoilt for choice on what they can get even when balling on a budget. The budget segment is the new frontier for growth and Samsung knows this.

The Samsung Galaxy Core Prime is a worthy upgrade that reflects what consumers want. We now have a refined performance profile and a camera profile that will entice mostly the young consumer who just wants some super-fine selfies.
