Everything You Need to Know About Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime

Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime is an uber cool mid-range smartphone

Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime is a mid-range entry into Samsung's infamous Galaxy lineup that promises unmatched level of performance and outstanding value for money. This smartphone will cater to those individuals in Philippines, who are tight on budget, but want maximum features that money can buy. Samsung had always faced tough competition from other brands like LG, SONY and HTC, but rising, above all, Samsung has carved itself a name as the world leaders in the smartphone business. With Grand Prime, the Korean giant will be looking forward to maintaining their highly esteemed reputation.

Main phone specifications

  • 1.2 GHz Quad-core processor
  • 1 GB RAM
  • Adreno 206 GPU
  • 5 inch qHD display, 540 x 960 pixel resolution
  • 8 MP CMOS camera with LED flash
  • 5 MP CMOS secondary camera
  • 8 GB internal storage, expandable up to 64 GB via microSD
  • WiFi, WiFi hotspot, 3G, HSPA+
  • Bluetooth 4.0, GPS, A-GPS, GLONASS
  • 2600mAh battery
  • Dual SIM
  • Android 4.4 Kitkat, TouchWiz UI

Phone design and display

The Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime looks like a mix of Galaxy S3 and Galaxy Note 3 with its pebble-like shape and glossy finish. It is comfortable to hold and operate with just one hand because of its size that measures at 144.8 x 72.1 x 8.6 mm in dimensions and weighs just 156 grams. It will be available in two traditional black and white colours. The power button and volume rockers are on either side while the 3.5 mm audio jack and mini USB port is situated on top and bottom respectively. Additionally, the upper right corner has the front-facing selfie camera while the primary unit is located at the back with the LED flash placed right underneath it.

The standard 5 inch screen is covered with Gorilla Glass 3 technology and is capable of displaying vivid colours in an amazing level of details. It supports a resolution of 540 x 960 that makes it good enough to play games or watch movies.

Camera quality

The primary 8 MP camera of the Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime takes good quality photos, especially at brightly lit situations. In low light, however, one can always use the LED flash to illuminate the environment and click photos in great details. The secondary 5 MP selfie camera is a lifesaver for selfie addicts who like to post photos on social networking sites. This upgraded secondary camera is one of the redeeming qualities of this phone, as it goes head to head with other top quality phones in Philippines.

OS, UI, and Performance

Out of the box, Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime comes loaded with Android 4.4 KitKat and brings with it a plethora of possibilities. Since Android is an open source platform, it allows te phone to access thousands of games and apps from Google Play store and use them based on the user's personal requirements. As expected, Samsung has incorporated their TouchWiz UI making it the navigation and UI more user-friendly. The icons, widgets are uncluttered and arranged in such a way that maximises output at no extra effort. Switching between apps is smooth as silk and can be done with just a flicker of the screen.

This mid-range smartphone is one of the best in Philippines as it comes powered by a 1.2 GHz ARM Cortex A53 processor, Adreno 306 GPU and 1 GB of RAM. While these specs might not instantly catch your fancy, they will certainly amaze you when you actually put the phone on use. This device is capable of running almost all high graphics games of today in flawlessly and without any sort of lag whatsoever. Same goes for HD videos and recording, which happens is a smooth and buttery transition.

Call quality and battery life

We made a few calls around Philippines to test this phone's call quality and found no such anomalies to report. There were no dropped calls, neither any difficulty in hearing speech on the other end. The Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime comes with a standard 2600mAh battery that is good enough to last an entire day when moderate use of the phone is made. When used for 3G web surfing, gaming or playing HD videos, the battery can last up to a maximum of 7-8 hours. While battery life may be satisfactory, there are better alternatives at this similar price point.

Is Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime a good phone?

Like a lot of budget handsets these days, the Galaxy Grand Prime manages to come across as attractive and approachable without looking “cheap.” An Android 4.4 KitKat phone, the Grand Prime isn’t as up-to-date as Android 5.0 Lollipop, but it’s still fast and has critical features like Google New.

Is the Galaxy Grand Prime 4K?

No, the Galaxy Grand Prime resolution of 960 x 540 is not considered to be 4K.
