Editor Notes

These two are one of many Samsung phones that were just made with no difference than just a minor facelift. These are Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime and Samsung Galaxy Core Prime. Reason why they should be compared is because they have nearly identical specifications with not so identical pricing. While the Grand Prime costs nearly Rs. 12,000, the Core Prime is available at a much cheaper rate of Rs. 8,100.

The major difference is between the display of these two phones - Core Prime’s small 4.5 inch LCD display is sporting a resolution of 800 x 480, which might sound really low when compared to the 5 inch display of the Grand Prime. But the fact that Core Prime has a denser pixel density of 207 PPI in small screen is much better than 220 PPI on a big screen. So don’t think that bigger is always better, the Core Prime will definitely give a nicer quality visuals.

The Galaxy Grand Prime has a 8 megapixels camera that can record videos in 1080p resolution, while the Galaxy Core Prime is stuck on a 5 megapixels that can only record in 720p. This is really bonkers for us as technically speaking internals are exact copy of one another. To record in full HD (1080p) one only needs 2MP resolution. So it turns out that Samsung only crippled the Core Prime from its abilities just to save the Grand line up.

Both have same internal storage available and same level of expandable storage. Both are running a 1.2GHz processor and a gigabyte of RAM. Since the Grand Prime is rocking a huge display, it also has some extra hardware space behind its back and this is where the 2600 mAh battery is put. It is far better than the 2000 mAh rated battery of the Core Prime. But the battery won't take a hit on the Galaxy Core Prime as it has a much smaller display and won’t be as power hungry. Meaning, both will give same amount of talk time.

In conclusion, we would say that the Galaxy Grand Prime is nothing more than a Galaxy Core Prime with a better display and camera. If you are interested in recording 1080p, the Galaxy Grand Prime is definitely better choice.
