I'm using this phone for 5 months and I'm dissapointed with it.
Lags from 1gb ram device are expected of course, but I guess touchwizz is just killing this model. There is just too much lag and hanging.
I use it ONLY for browsing, with almost no apps in background and it still frozes daily so I must remove the battery to restart it.
I complained at the local service and they told me that neary every grand prime and core prime user reported this problem. They said that there is nothing wrong with it, it't just how it is-a piece of junk.
My sister has lg fino that has lower spects but outperformers my grand prime.
btw it runs 4.4.4 KitKat
I DON'T RECOMMEND IT!!!

I have updated to 5.0.2 and it feels like a new phone here - awesome new features and fluid animations. ^^
Rahul, 30 Jan 2016how to get converted agin to kitkat version from lolipopThat's not possible
The ultimate budget phone on the go. High quality and highly supported by Samsung. The unrecognized chinese brand when broken there is no replacement for battery, display, camera or anything like that. This Samsung have many spare parts available. Love it. Bundle of joy. Many accessories.

I have a Galaxy grand prime which model no. SM-G530H. It's a nice phone but there are some problem. It runs smoothly in Kitkat 4.4.4 android version. When I install the official released lollipop 5.0.2 my device become slower. mainly apps are not working properly and crashed sometimes. Then I downgrade my phone from 5.0.2 to 4.4.4. although it was not so easy. Now it's running smoothly. But automatic updater notify me again and again i cant stop this automatic update notification. So Galaxy Grand Prime SM-G530H is not suitable for lollipop don't upgrade it.

Anonymous, 29 Jan 2016Galaxy Grand Plus in 2016 anyone? Upgraded to 3gb ram, 5.7" 1080p display, Superamoled, & ... moreI welcome it with open arms. Though I think Grand series got killed because there are A series and J series phablet category too. I know Grand series is the cheap low budget phablet category but E series from Samsung seem like a nice challengers. There seem to be no more Grand series model since Grand Prime released in 2014. I guess this is the last of it.
Galaxy Grand Plus in 2016 anyone? Upgraded to 3gb ram, 5.7" 1080p display, Superamoled, & snapdragon 652. Grand series is the only cheap phablet category made by Samsung.

Tremendous Creation , in the shape of "galaxy grand prime" by samsung .
Good smart phone in that range of price. Thanks samsung
I purchase a samsung Grand Prime but i have a Samsung Gears S but i cant pair them ,why?and how can i do
I hate my grand prime. I really can't express this enough. I had a galaxy s3 before this, and have had Nothing but issues since I've gotten it home. First, many times, no one can hear me. This is not just a problem with my phone, but my husband's too! This is very frustrating for his business calls. We returned those ones and they gave us new primes...still issues. Storage sucks. Many cases block the mic hole. While I'm on the phone, my face is pushing mute, surfing the Web. ..etc. overall. ..its a piece. Oh, the camera sucks too. Everything looks foggy.
