Galaxy Core Prime
If you’re on the lookout for a mid-range 4G Compatible smartphone, the Samsung Galaxy Core Prime has apparently launched in Australia at various retailers around the country.

The Good Guys, Bing Lee and AllPhones are all showing the phone as in-stock with an RRP of $269, though AllPhones has managed to get the price down to $249. The specs are mid-range but the inclusion of LTE and Android 4.4 makes the phone a little bit more attractive than your average no-name handset.

Specs in the Galaxy Core Prime include:

  • 4.5″ (480 x 800 pixels) TFT LCD Display
  • 1.2GHz Qualcomm MSM8916 Quad Core processor
  • 1GB RAM
  • 8GB Storage with microSD Card Slot up to 64GB
  • 5MP Rear Camera and 2MP front-facing camera
  • 802.11 b/g/n, GPS, Bluetooth
  • Radios :
    • 3G: 850/900/1800/1900
    • 4G: 700/850/900/1800/2100/2600
  • Android (Kit Kat)
  • 2000mAh Battery
  • 68.1x131x8.8mm

The phone is available now in-store or online from Bing Lee, AllPhones and The GoodGuys.

Dan is a die-hard Android fan. Some might even call him a lunatic. He's been an Android user since Android was a thing, and if there's a phone that's run Android, chances are he owns it (his Nexus collection is second-to-none) or has used it.

Dan's dedication to Ausdroid is without question, and he has represented us at some of the biggest international events in our industry including Google I/O, Mobile World Congress, CES and IFA.

So basically a y550 but 2.5x the price.

Nice one


They are also in at Officeworks. Arrive off the truck around the 28th of January


The screen resolution and internal storage capacity are actually both entry level, like the Moto E, rather than being actual mid tier like the Moto G (2014)
