Although the resolution is the same, the specifications of the two cellphones are quite different. The rear camera has F1.9 lens opening. Aperture that is wide enough to make photos brighter even if taken in low lighting conditions.
Then for the front camera has a smaller lens opening. Still quite satisfying for selfies or video calls. A2 Core camera can record video in Full HD 1080p 30fps resolution.
Android Go Performance and Operating System

Because the Galaxy A2 Core is supported by the Android Go operating system. The lite version of the operating system from Android Oreo is designed so that low-spec mobiles can work more smoothly. All Android Go default applications are lite versions, such as: YouTube Go, Maps Go, Gmail Go, and so on.
The lite version of the application is much smaller than the standard version. This way, it won’t take up too much internal memory. If you don’t have enough internal memory, you can add MicroSD up to 256 GB. Then for the affairs of the main brain, Galaxy A2 Core powered by Exynos 7870 processor which is also used in the Samsung Galaxy M10 .
