That long name aside, the Galaxy Core Advance is what every budget Samsung device out there should be. Taking after the Galaxy S4 Active as far as looks (at least the front) go, it may not have some top notch specs as we would want (eer Moto G?) but with a $160 pricing without a contract, it could be a device that could get some corners worried. Actually it looks to me a much better deal than the Galaxy S Duos 2 which is going for an equivalent of $175 in India and has far less exciting specs when compared with the Galaxy Core Advance.
Running Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, a 1.2 GHz processor and a lowly 480×800 WVGA display, the Galaxy Core Advance is very much the Galaxy S Duos 2 as you can see from those specs. The difference sets in when you look at the device. The design language while staying the same is altered a little bit to give the Core Advance some edge while the curvy little S Duos 2 maintains the standard Samsung device looks. The other differences arise in the memory and battery capacity. The Galaxy Core Advance has 1 GB RAM and 8 GB internal storage (expandable up to 64 GB via microSD). The battery capacity is 2000 mAh.
