The Korean giant, Samsung Electronics released the Galaxy Grand Neo with much hue and cry.

In case, you have a peek at the specification sheet of the handset, there would be no questions asked. The poor and weak qualities of the handset were a disappointment as compared to its predecessors. The 5-inch display of the Galaxy Grand Neo comes with poor pixel density. However, the other specs offered by the smartphone are decent, which includes, 5MP primary camera with LED flash, quad core processor and 21Mbps HSPA+ connectivity.

In comparison, the Galaxy Core Advance is a handset for the masses, which are less comfortable with touch screens. Regardless, the Galaxy Core Advance is a handy Android based smartphone, equipped to provide the user with great browsing, picture snapping and games playing experience.

However, one major factor a potential buyer would like to be conversant of the handset is the camera specifications. Let us stack these two handsets against each other, to determine a better snapper of the two smartphones.

Camera Comparison

Samsung Galaxy Grand Neo

The Galaxy Grand Neo comes equipped with a 5MP camera, which to the user’s dismay records 720p HD video and produces a lot of noise. The primary camera comes along with a LED flash. In addition, the smartphone is equipped with a user facing camera, for video calling and clicking selfies. The Korean giant has equipped the Grand Neo with few shooting modes, such as Panorama and Best Shot. The handset does not come equipped with more demanding regimes such as HDR or Rich Tone.

Color representation and overall scene exposure is largely accurate, but comes with a lot of noise, even in broad daylight. When clicking snaps indoors, the noise gets even louder and offers poor results. In terms of low light conditions, the results are soft, still noisy. Regardless, if the handset is held steadily while clicking snaps, the images would not come out blurred.

Camera Speed

The Galaxy Grand Neo has the ability to record 1080pFull HD videos, which has been restricted to 720p HD resolution, recording at 30fps. The video lacks details and comes a tad soft.

Samsung Galaxy Core Advance

The camera of Galaxy Core Advance could be described as just a decent snapper, nothing more and nothing less.

The 5MP primary snapper of the Core Advance comes equipped with LED flash and auto-focus features. The 0.3MP user facing camera offers the user with video calling and selfies clicking experience.

When the camera app is launched, the interface offers the user with big, easy to click buttons on a perceptive layout. The camera comes equipped with speak out app for aiding the visually impaired while clicking the snap. The handset comes equipped with a variety of shooting modes, such as Sports, Night, Best Shot and Panorama. These are the essential and basic shooting modes that are offered in the handset. However, the camera comes with a video recording ability up to the maximum resolutions of 720p.


Both the smartphones do not have fancy gimmicks to offer to the user in terms of camera specs. However, both the handsets come equipped with decent 5MP cameras, which would get the job done and nothing more than that.
