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.)
paul smart, 18 Dec 2018can this phone be used as a torch? If you try hard enough and can take the smell of burning plastic then sure.
...oh wait, a flashlight torch? In that case sure as well
good phone but has sone problems I've had this phone for 3 years and now my batery dies at 60%😥 and the camera is not very good good but exept for that no more complaints and for the price (for me it was 60Â€) I rate it a solid 7/10
I recommend if on a tight budget
Got it for free. For what it is, I'm impressed. Better than the LG Leon at least
pretty good phone ,I bought it 4 years ago and it worked well
stucking at kitkat is the only annoying thing for me
now I'm trying to use a mod rom
nagbabu, 29 Nov 2018all ok....only one problem phone dies in 40% it is very annoying for me :( :( :( Change battery. Works fine for me now.

all ok....only one problem phone dies in 40% it is very annoying for me :( :( :(
this phone does not have call block feature
how can i block spam callers?
Galaxy Core Prime is a pretty basic device.
With 1 GB RAM and 410 Snapdragon processor, don't expect very powerful computing from this phone. I agree that this phone does not deserve the bad reviews it receives but it does present its own issues. Battery life can be a hassle due to poor battery optimization and forget about multitasking. Resolution and camera are nothing special and even for android users hoping to obtain better performance through root modifications, root is hard to obtain on models such as the SM-G360T and SM-G360T1. Although not good at heavy tasks, the phone will perform admirably if you are a person who only seeks basic phone functions and the price tag doesn't hurt at all considering its a budget phone.
I have been using this phone for the past 4 years. The phone is a bit lagging on occasions. Some applications crash frequently. And the battery dies at 30%. But, this phone is the only reason why I am planning to stay with Samsung again. When all my friends has had 4 phones already, I am still satisfied with this one phone. But, Samsung's decision to withdraw the option to upgrade android software from Kitkat to Lollipop was a big disappointment for me.
I admit, I was a bit skeptical about getting this phone when viewing the negative reviews... however I do not have the issues that others have had, and I use this phone solely for Courier apps daily/heavily. Not had any problems with this phone. I have not experience my phone battery dying out at the 30%, 40% ... not even at 15%.. as I said, I am a heavy user with these Courier apps along with Waze running at the same time, and other communication apps that I use. I will say that the apps may play a part on one's individual phone... I only use my phone for my purposes that I listed above...
I'm fine with mines.
Had mines since September of 2016 ... it is now August 8th of 2018..
Will buy another if I needed to.

Ba... moreI have this phone too, but I don't understand why it gets so much hate on it.
I agree, the battery dies at 30%. For me, it dies at 40%.
But it not glitches. I have this phone for 4 years now, I never had to replace it, it is just the best phone ever except the battery.
