Lisa Gade reviews the Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime, an affordable Android smartphone offered by Sprint, T-Mobile and Cricket in the US. We look at the Sprint version that sells for $240 full retail, while T-Mobile’s is $180 and Cricket’s is $129. The phone runs Android 5.1.1 Lollipop with Samsung TouchWiz software on the quad core 1.2 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 CPU with Adreno 306 graphics. It has 1.5 gigs of RAM and 8 gigs of internal storage. The 5” 960 x 540 TFT display won’t win resolution awards, but it has decent colors and brightness. The smartphone has a removable 2600 mAh battery, a microSD card slot, single band WiFi 802.11n, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS and NFC. It has a sharp 5MP front camera with a wide angle lens and a rear 8MP camera with LED flash that can shoot 1080p video.

    My family gave me a Samsung grand prime phone  and for a budget phone, it served me well for the price point.

    I am completely satisfied with this phone, which I have had for almost a year, except for one thing. It is very difficult to hang up at the end of a phone call. I hammer on that red button with the phone receiver silhouette, but usually have to wait for the other party to hang up. Problem when I get an answering machine. Anyone have a solution for that?

    My family is moving to Straight Talk. Now that I have moved over, I can't believe I ever paid $600 for a phone. Was I crazy? Anyway, moving to a less expensive phone is tricky. I got the Core Prime, and it's wonderful! I love this review of the Grand Prime. My daughter is getting it. Thank you for such a wonderful review!
