Common Questions


Samsung released the Galaxy Core on June 25, 2013.


The Galaxy Core price will vary depending on retailer, age, special offers and whether or not it's purchased with a service plan. If purchased with a 2 year service contract for example, you would likely pay much less for the phone itself up front. You can compare Samsung Galaxy Core prices from around the web here on The Informr.

Samsung backs up the Galaxy Core with a 1 Year parts & labour warranty.


If your Galaxy Core has problems and is still within its warranty period, you could contact Samsung support or the retailer you purchased the phone from. You'll find Samsung's contact information here. If your phone is off warranty and needs repair for a physical problem such as a broken screen or bad battery, you should visit an authorized service centre or a local phone repair shop.
