Samsung Galaxy Core LTE Review: Fast At The Core: Display, Handling

By 10:07 Sat, 14 Aug 2021 Comments


Display

The Samsung Galaxy Core is built around a 4.5" PLS display, which is a step up from the first-generation Core's 4.3" TFT unit. The resolution follows suit - up to qHD here from WVideo Graphics Array (VGA) on the original Core. This results in a pixel density of 245ppi - fine enough for the phone's entry-level spot.



The display of the Galaxy Core LTE

Compared to the original Core, contrast and brightness are slightly better, but not spectacular. Outdoor visibility, however, is remarkable and you'll have no problems reading the classy screen in colorful sunlight.

Color reproduction isn't too remarkable though. Colors see a bit washed out which may be down to a halfhearted effort at calibrating the display. Viewing the even at under the slightest angle results in poor contrast.

Sunlight legibility comes in about the same - towards the bottom of the chart.

Handling

The Samsung Galaxy Core LTE feels solid in the hand. The bump in display size hasn't affected the handling and portability, and the resolution upgrade is welcome.




Handling the Galaxy Core LTE is a delight

The recent matte back cover improves grip and gets rid of fingerprints. The all-plastic handset is well put together and the quality of the finish is reasonable.
