Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime Smartphone Review

 

Inexpensive Prime? Inexpensive smartphones are getting more popular in wealthy industrial countries and it does not always have to be a premium device. The Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime is supposed to attract customers that spend less than 200 Euros...

Solid build quality, Replaceable battery, Decent camera equipment, Good voice quality, Usable battery runtimes, Comparatively high frequency variety

Heavy chassis, Display susceptible to pressure, Pale color reproduction, Low contrast, Low resolution

Samsung managed to get the smartphone crown in the high-end segment with its Galaxy S6, but the task is a bit more challenging for the Koreans in the mainstream sector, which is noticeable when you look at the Galaxy Grand Prime: There are just too...

Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime

 

For $180 from prepaid carrier (and AT&T subsidiary) Cricket, the Grand Prime brings you in one of the more decked-out phones of this price tier: a 5-inch screen, 8-megapixel rear camera, 5-megapixel front-facing camera and 1,080p HD video capture.

The Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime has LTE and front and rear cameras that turn out decent photos.

Its low screen resolution makes videos and games look pixelated, and download speeds are on the slow side.

Feature-rich cameras and an attractive build help push Cricket's prepaid Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime past other budget rivals that also cost under $200.

Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime review: Mirror shot

 

The Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime has an ambitious name, but behind it is an ordinary midrange phone. It puts functionality ahead of screen fidelity, throwing all the pixels they could afford at the front facing camera instead. As with other Galaxy...

Optional Dual SIM version available ; 5" 540 x 960 TFT display with 220ppi ; Android OS v4.4.4 KitKat with TouchWiz UI ; Quad-core 1.2 GHz Cortex-A53 processor, Adreno 306 GPU, 1GB of RAM, Snapdragon 410 chipset ; 8GB built-in storage, microSD card...

Screen ppi is entry-level ; On the large side for a 5" device ; No screen protection glass ; No automatic brightness

We won't pretend that we completely understand the enormous popularity of low-res, large-screened phones like the Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime. We can see why people would want more screen real estate, but it's the trade-off of a cheaper matrix for...

Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime Review

 

With words like grand and prime, you'd envision something super spec'd, but alas, that's not the case here, as it's just an entry-level offering that aims to diversify Sammy's portfolio to cover all segments of the smartphone space...

Budget friendly cost ; Similar camera app experience found in the S6

Bland looking design ; Display lacks sharpness and intensity ; Underpowered rear speaker ; Subpar camera performance ; Poor call quality

The common stigma with entry-level phones is that they never seem to get any love. To a certain degree, that continues to be the case, but as we’ve seen this year, several low to mid-end smartphones have proven themselves to be attractive options...

"Attractive but with serious problems"

 

The display has a "known problem", as the person in the warranty department told me: it develops a black blotch in the middle of the display. Because this is a known problem, it can appear on every replacement phone you receive. If it appears within 30...

The expected features work well, but then problems start showing up

Display is known to Kricket to develop a black patch

Cricket Wireless SUCKS!!!!!

 

The insurance is terrible. They insurance is $7 a month and says it covers physical damage, but my phone got damaged and I had to pay a $75 nonrefundable deductible. I have been paying the insurance for over a year so I have already paid $96 in...
