Expert Analysis :
Samsung Galaxy Core 2 goes head to head with the MOTO G. Already receiving rave reviews from critics around the world, the MOTO G features a much higher res display (326 ppi) along with Gorilla Glass protection, more RAM, and more Internal memory for a negligible difference in price tag. Samsung needs to be aware of the competition and should price their future products accordingly. Although the Galaxy Core 2 is no slouch, the Moto G is a much more favorable choice in this price tag.
