Good day to all who looked in my opinion!
Today I want to talk about the mobile phone Samsung Galaxy Core 2 Duos.
I don't really trust the company Samsung, but it turned out that this phone was presented to me.
On the phone from February 2015.
This model features a rectangular shape with beveled edges. For me this form was uncomfortable, very quickly tired of the hand when typing messages.
Also I couldn't use the phone at minimum brightness (could not see anything because of dullness of colors). But if the brightness increase, the colors become terribly pungent and started to hurt and eyes water.
The touchscreen does not always respond to touch. I have several times to click on the app, minimize and reopen the tab to the phone responded.
Plus to everything, we get another bonus bad - the distortion of colors when changing the angle of the phone. Ie if You decide to watch any video at high brightness when you tilt the phone, the brightness of the picture will change - decrease or increase.
In the photo the brightness of the phone 100%, straight angle.
There is also 100% brightness, but the phone is tilted. You may notice that the colors are badly distorted.
What surprised me most is the fact that the phone automatically deleted my files that were on the memory card. So he deleted all the photos, and recently also started to remove the application. I am attaching the screenshots of deleted photos from memory card:
And a screenshot of the remote app:
Such folders of images I have about five. And I cannot delete them from your phone! Even if I try to open the image via the computer. I want to say that it is not in the storage card and in the phone because the memory card was functioning perfectly on other phones. (Addition 03.01.2016: I managed to delete empty folders, but, unfortunately, I can't remember what manipulation was done for this).
Initially, the phone is just not fully decided on the memory card. He saw her, but I could not do anything to remove the memory card and I had to rearrange it in another phone and remove unnecessary information from it.
Samsung Galaxy Core 2 Duos just terribly overheats. If You decided to watch a film lasting an hour and a half, then get ready for the fact that after viewing Your phone will be very hot. After watching You disappear 30-40% battery life. Moreover, the phone overheats if You just use two or more of the included apps.
If You are still not persuaded to buy this phone then here is another cons.

And now for comparison with the more budget phone.
Fly IQ 4404 VS Samsung Galaxy Core 2 Duos.
By the way, the Fly was purchased for UAH 999, and Samsung for UAH 1999. At the moment the prices for both models have increased, but the difference in cost so far is about 1000 UAH.
A little information about Fly:
The screen diagonal of 4.5 inches;Battery 1750mAh;Camera 5 MP (autofocus);Light sensor, location, proximity.
And now on Samsung:
The screen diagonal of 4.5 inches;2000mAh battery;Camera 5 MP.
From Samsung is MISSING the proximity sensor!
What's wrong with that?
Battery. As I said above, Fly 1750mAh, and Samsung 2000mAh.
Oddly enough, but the Fly I was able to use up to two days without recharging. Samsung need to charge every day.
Camera. These models stated that the main camera is 5 MP, but still from Samsung the recording quality is a little better.
Fly has a matte, smooth and dense panel.
Samsung has quite a thin, easily bendable and textured panel.
SIM card and SD card.
Have Fly single slot for standard SIM card, one for micro. From Samsung both for micro.
1 - Connector for the first SIM card;
2 Connector for a second SIM card (each model for micro);
3 - slot for SD-cards.
Mini-test showing the difference in color at different brightness.
Honesty experiment, I put on both phones the same screen saver.
Picking up the phone is the same: USB cable and charger. Headphones are missing.
Briefly summarize about the Samsung Galaxy Core 2 Duos.
I strongly NOT recommend to buy Samsung Galaxy Core 2 Duos.
If I reboot the device, then it self rebooted again many more times (it happened that about 6 times within 10 minutes; then I simply did not tolerate). Self-restarting, will continue until, until I remove the battery and again turn on the device.
What is the reason, I don't know. However, every time I try to install the program, download it from the Play store, the phone begins to shut down while loading the application. After switching on it switches off again, and then again turn on and againand shuts down; this continues until, until I repeat the procedure, removing the battery, but even that does not always help.
I use two SIM cards, one for calls and another for Internet. The phone is somehow blocking the connection on one of the cards, even in spite of the fact that the relationship I'm almost always 100% (all the "4 sticks"). When you try to call on one of the cards, the operator notifies that the phone is currently out-of-network coverage, but again, the relationship I have always on the both SIM cards 100%; the call on other SIM card is always done without any problems.
