Hey Are you know about Galaxy Core. I am searching for this phone, But i heard some where it's been quite slow when there are too many background application running, So is it true or ??

seems like its going to be a reasonably priced low end smartphone.

"The Samsung Galaxy Core, a 4.3-inch handset offering a 1.2GHz dual-core CPU, 1GB RAM, 8GB internal storage and a microSD slot. Running Touchwiz-infused Jelly Bean, the phone has a 5-megapixel rear camera with an LED flash and a VGA front-facer for the vain amongst you. Users will also be getting some of the more fancy Galaxy-style software features like Motion UI, Smart Stay, Smart Alert and S Voice. Of course, a phone is nothing without a screen, and here your eyes will be caressing a 4.3-inch WVGA (480 x 800) display -- but while you may not be thrilled at a low pixel count, at least there's the option for single SIM (available in July) or dual-SIM (from May) models for carrier swappers."

That's actually more then good news considering the amount of money apple has spent advertising its down right a shock that android came out that far ahead on top, it's excellent news. To beat out apple at marketing is very,very difficult.:)

This is only for a small time span, as Apple will release their iPhone successor the stats will change. At that time either Apple will lead the market or the difference will be very minimal.

By the end Q1 of 2014 Android will again lead the market continuously till next iPhone successor is released. This has been trend form years.
