In a nutshell

The Samsung Galaxy Core Prime replaces Samsung's Galaxy Ace range, but with a vastly improved spec. It brings the lower-end of the Samsung range right up to date in terms of processing power and battery life, performing much better as an all-round smartphone than some of its predecessors. It's also our only 4G-ready phone at this price.

Best for you if: You're upgrading from a Galaxy Ace or the Samsung S3 mini or want Samsung performance at an entry level price.

Not for you if: It’s all about the camera. Try the Sony M4 aqua for a 13 megapixel main camera (better than an iPhone 6). If you want a Samsung that packs a bigger punch then the Samsung J5 may be the one for you.

Full description

It's fair to say 'Core Prime' isn't a familiar household name yet (we think it sounds a bit like a Transformer). However Samsung very much is, and this phone has all the hallmarks of a future classic from the UK's no 1 phone brand.

It has the familiar Samsung style that made the S Mini series so popular and although it's intended as an entry-level smartphone it has a pretty decent spec.

The screen is a respectable 4.5 inches (half an inch more than the S3 mini) and there's a 5MP main camera plus 2MP selfie camera, which is perfectly adequate for standard phone snaps.

However it's the processing power that has made a significant leap forward from earlier entry-level Samsung smartphones.

The Galaxy Core Prime has a quad-core processor and 1GB of RAM, which means it can handle most things thrown at it. It's also got expandable memory up to 64GB so plenty of storage if you love your apps, music and games.

It won't be for everyone - if you're after a top-end, big-screen smartphone for example (try the Samsung S5 Neo ). But if you want a good mid-range smartphone option, you can't go far wrong.

Our view: a very decent smartphone for just £10 from the UK's no 1 phone brand.
