Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime Review

Samsung is the top player in the android segment and for good reason. Samsung has a user base and fan following in every segment of mobile phones- be it the high end phones or be it the budget friendly phones.

Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime is another popular offering from the tech giant and here is all you need to know about this phone if you’re planning to buy it:

Design

This is a great stylish phone that offers some really good features for its price. The phone is only 8.6 mm thick and has a sophisticated body. The phone has a glossy finish which gives the phone an overall appeal. The phone has its power and lock button on the right side and the volume buttons on the left side with the micro USB charging port located on the bottom and the headset jack is on the top.
The phone weights 156 grams which should sit well in your hand without feeling heavy or bulky.

Display

The phone offers a 5 inch screen with an HD display with a screen resolution of 540 x 960 and an approximate 220 pixels per inch. It is relatively low for a mobile screen this size which makes the Grand Prime a little incapable to read text well and the screen is rendered dim in high sunlight which makes the fingerprint smudges quite prominent. Very heavy files or games might appear slightly pixelated and the photos might not appear very sharp on the screen.

Internal Specifications

The phone supports and runs on Android KitKat 4.4 but even without Lollipop it is quick and also offers features such as Google Now. The phone runs on Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 processor and has 1GB RAM. The phone also has 8GB internal memory which can be expanded up to 64 GB using an external memory card. The phone runs without interruptions however a few heavy apps might face a slight lag while working or multi-tasking.

The phone also comes in built with apps that will provide productivity to you and is a good feature the phone offers as it helps you have a better enhanced performance and a lot more usability.

Camera

The phone has a good 8 mega pixel front camera and a 5 MP rear camera that can take some really good selfies thanks to its wide viewing angle of a good 85 degrees. This means you can have all your friends in one selfie with an amazing background too making it an epic photo for all your social media accounts. The resolution also makes sure that you get great shots every time and capture every detail around you.

Performance

The battery is powered with 2600 mAh and can give you a good battery life so you’re always connected to your music, apps and games on the go and never have to worry about charging your phone. The phone also offers dual sim but the phone does not support 4G which makes it a slight drawback for those who look for higher speed.

All in all it’s a good phone to invest in as it gives good value for money and great specifications for its price. However Samsung needs to up its game as other companies like Lenovo and Xiaomi are coming up with better models at almost the same price range.
