The Samsung Galaxy Core we have here on campus is of the dual-SIM variety which, in theory, should do worse than the single-SIM edition, having to power a second radio all the time.
But is it really that bad?
Now, the Samsung Galaxy Core comes equipped with an 1800 mAh Li-Ion battery, which needs to deal with those dual radios but also the Snapdragon S4 Play chipset and the 4.3″ WVGA screen. Those last two bits have proven to be pretty efficient, so the Galaxy Core is not without its chances to impress here.
The Samsung Galaxy Core managed almost 12 hours in the talk time test – 11:52 hours to be exact, which fairly good, considering that the low-power chipset and the screen can’t help it at all here.
