CNET First Look
Samsung's Galaxy Core Prime saves you a buckThis inexpensive Android handset has all the basics, but not much more.
[MUSIC] Hey everyone, I'm Jessica Dolcourt for CNET and this is the Samsung Galaxy Core Prime for Verizon. Now this is one of the three cheapest phones you can get on the carrier. And it has specs to match. It's smaller, it's got a 4.5 inch display, fairly low resolution, it's pretty hard to read outside in daylight, but this is kind of what we expect for a phone this caliber. It also has a 5 megapixel camera on the back. Above. Be careful when you take it out of the box. It defaults to a lower resolution. So you're gonna have to ratchet that back up, for better photos. There's also a two megapixel camera on the front. The phone is running Android 4.4 of the operating system. It gives you stuff like Google Now and all of your Google essentials. There is a physical home key on the bottom and those of you who are fans of removable batteries will be very happy that you can take it out of this one. There's expandable storage as well. Over all this phone will get the job done. It gives you pretty much exactly what you expect without any surprises. Now there is some competition on Verizon and with other carriers For entry level Android phones. So you're gonna wanna be sure to check out all the pros and cons in my review at cnet.com. [SOUND]
