I have had this phone for a while now, and it is not worth the cost. It has 8 gigabytes of internal storage, but only about 4 of it is usable. I have a tablet made by RCA made about 5 years prior that works better than this phone.
really good phone this was, yes, the screen is pretty small and a sub hd resolution,it is pretty slow and not that much storage, but cmon it's a 2015 budget phone!
The internal storage is not enough now(only 8GB, actually less than 4GB available after the OS occupation). I have added a microsd card into the phone. I have moved the photos and some files into the sd card. But even for the apps usage, The internal storage is not adequate. How to move the app to the sd card? THX!
This phone sucks like honestly, the battery is shit. After 3 years, the battery lasts like 2 minutes after charging it to 100%. It takes like 5 minutes to load google chrome, and like even longer for other apps. I wouldn't recommend this phone to any of you people reading this so don't get this YETH.
yeh this was my first phone. Was a cheap price and lasted 3 years. At the end of its life its battery lasted only like 5 mins :/
My experience with this handset has been amazing. It's been 4 years I'm currently using Samsung galaxy prime core DUOS and I won't mind continuing it.
AndroAssist, 16 Oct 2018Galaxy Core Prime is a pretty basic device. With 1 GB RAM and 410 Snapdragon processor, don't... moreI think it does deserve the bad reviews. But mine might be defective, or Google may be at fault for not ever stopping continuous Play Services updates that keep ever further overtaxing older phones. The resolution always seemed good to me, but yes not easy to see it in daylight.
Tipu, 19 Nov 2018this phone does not have call block feature how can i block spam callers?That's not specific to this phone, but try Real Caller, Should I Answer, or YouMail Robocall Blocker. Look like good ones, I'm going to try.
nagbabu, 29 Nov 2018all ok....only one problem phone dies in 40% it is very annoying for me :( :( :( Get a new battery for your phone on Amazon.
fat, 18 Dec 2018good phone but has sone problems I've had this phone for 3 years and now my batery dies at 60%... moreThe phone was eventually dying with my original battery at 70-80%. It just needs a replacement. Even with the lousy cheap new one it doesn't die until lower than 5%.
The main camera I thought was really good, that is until it gets scratched beyond use. That happens merely from normal putting it down on anything, that isn't super soft.
Kawasaki_254, 18 Apr 2019I have used for 5yrs now. SM-G360H....Still awesome.💯Wow, after 5 years! Mine is intolerably horrible after less than 3 years. Glacially slow doesn't cover it. Main camera lens got scratched up & camera is not usable. I'm not hard on things at all, the display is still almost perfect. Lens sticks out, so you can't put it down on anything not super soft.
Extreme frustration- glacial is much faster than this phone. This is a low-end phone computer. Mine has always been unreliable and very problematic. It has serious system performance problems constantly. Generally used to require reboot every 48-60 hours; could be a lot sooner, or sometimes even a lot later.
Lately though, it must be rebooted every single day, if I want halfway acceptable performance, half the time. With its hardware, and the manufacturer claims, you'd think it would run fast, but in fact it's always been slower than cold molasses, the majority of the time. Surprising the luke warm ratings on performance this site gave.
Lately, it's most of the time it will keep you waiting for a response all day. Have to do something else for several minutes, come back when it's finally responded, for every little step. It has gone from bad to worse, to intolerably worse. It was actually defective from the start, and I should've done a warranty return.
It has about every type of malfunction or failure regularly. It's always screwed up the home screen icons after almost every reboot. Bluetooth has frequent failures- needs shutting off and reactivating. Lately, it won't respond to Bluetooth commands most of the time, no matter how often it's reset. People constantly complaining they can't hear you on this phone. It has a poor microphone, with a lot of noise. (Lousy T-Mobile signal doesn't help either.)
The small amount of time it's actually not having performance problems, it's pretty cool to use. Lately, that's hardly ever.
I have noticed when the SD card is removed, performance immensely improves (I have many apps installed on it). Google Play Services is responsible for most of the increasing horrendous system performance problems, from what I can determine. Possibly I should try rooting, and force the heinous Play Services to only run an old and manageable version. I wanted to reflash the OS, but Best Buy couldn't get it to work, and didn't manage to try it myself.
Well, I just got one today. It looks and feels nice and itÂ’s written Â“Verizon 4G LTE at the back cover. Now, as I inserted my sim, the phone rejected it and I got this message Â‘Sim is not from verizonÂ’ please who can help me on how to resolve this issue?
Had mine for approx 2.5 years, no problems does what it says it will, at 70 years old no problems working it. due to my light usage the battery last about 3 days.
An entry-level phone with entry-level specs. Good for those wanting a true one-handed experience, or in my case, a phone that fits comfortably in my pocket.
The phone can be rooted, which is a HUGE plus for those of us concerned with privacy, but the battery life is relatively short compared to other phones.
I have been using this model: Samsung Galaxy Core Prime G360f for 2.5 years.
POSITIVE:Basic functionality works excellent: sms and calls. It is the most important, because it is still phone. Battery is ok, I have to charge it almost every day. I noticed that photos are excellent at day-light and in nature. I am very satisfied with pictures which are made in nature, without any filter,etc. My phone is white color. I like how it is looks. It is small dimensions so it is comfortable for my hands.
NEGATIVE: Well, I added external memory (16GB). I moved all pictures, videos,other files and apps to external memory. After that change my phone works faster. Front camera doesn't have any kind of light, flash so I can't take pictures in dark. I ignored upgrading to Lollipop, but at one moment i had to accept that change. If I install some less-known apps, there are pop-up boring ads. So I have to "clean" that. I think it is not problem related to device. If I use the phone for a long time, it heats,but it is not problem for me. It can make some ordinary photos, or I am not good photographer. They are not professional, but they are ok. (There are a lot of filters to made them better, I know that.)
