There's flogging a dead horse, and then there's the new Samsung Galaxy Core Advance. It looks like last year's S3, but it's not out until next year -- when the S5 will be imminent -- and it's not even as good as the 18-month-old flagship phone.
The Core Advance is more like the old S2, going by the specs, with the addition of a couple of buttons on the front. It has a pathetic dual-core 1.2GHz processor, a mediocre 1GB of RAM and 8GB of expandable storage, no 4G, and the aging Android 4.2 Jelly Bean.
Worst of all is its screen. At 4.7 inches across, it has a woeful 800x480-pixel resolution. That's a lamentable 199 pixels per inch -- worse than the original Galaxy S from 2010.
