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.

Have had this phone for a year and a half, bought in Aug '16, still works fine. I keep the data and wireless off until I use them to save battery. I usually get a day and a half or more of charge with minimal use. Call quality is usually better than my wife's iPhone 8, but that may be a carrier issue. All stats are mediocre, I know, but it's all I really need so I'm fine with that. Plays lower spec games fine and has solid media playback and Bluetooth connectivity. Stream Youtube music occasionally over LTE, works fine. All in all, it's a solid phone without flagship bells and whistles (actually has some of those sounds if you want them, haha) and is a nice size to boot. I like it it and will use it for a while longer.
have this phone still now almost 3 yrs but the screen broke i drop it 3 months ago still works properly still not giving up on me wow...if it ever gives up ill replace it again with another samsung
Very good phone. Mine came with KitKat, but updated to Lollipop (5.1.1) with no issues. My first died in the first year when I dropped it for the umpteenth time and the antenna connection broke. My second it still going strong after nearly two years. What makes or breaks this phone is a fast (faster the better so pay the extra cost) large capacity SD card (I've used 64GB, 128GB, and 200GB with no issues, although phone specs say up to 64GB), and a memory manager (I use Link2SD) to offload its very limited internal storage (8GB) to the SD card. Only issue I've had is odd inability to run Samsung Pay despite having the LTE model with NFC, although Google Pay runs just fine.
This is a complete piece of crap. Do NOT buy this, you will regret it. It freezes, it takes forever to charge, it has a short battery life, it over heats. It is a piece of crap. Do not bet it. Worst. Phone. Ever.
A good budget phone. Got it in 2015. Unfortunately after 2 years it got annoying and needed to give it away. Now I have an S8. If you plan to get a budget phone in 2018 go for other Galaxy phone. This one is just too old now. The phone has some cons: It's made of plastic so it gets dirty super easy. The audio is not amazing. It lags and opens apps very hard (but after several months of use of course).
