i bought it in 2014 and it was so good so good now its kind of boring bcoz its so old and weak beside the other mobiles i still with android kitkat 4.4.4 i realy want to upgrade it to lillipop but i don't know how? if u know u can tell me
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).
I am using it for almost 2 years. still battery back up is realy good. no hanging issue. I'm more than satisfied with it☺
Good phone, except that most of the time it will not connect with my router via wifi. I end up restarting the entire system (sometimes more than once), before it will connect. Irritating. Android 4.4.4
AnonD-731967, 20 Jan 2018when i pressed on button, it displayed on the lower part right side of menu screen the word: ... moreSafe Mode normally happens when after powering on you hold down the volume down key - If it is not done on purpose it could be your case if you have one.

"safe mode". is this on samsung specs? or is my phone hacked?
A couple of days ago everytime I try to send a message .It fails .I'm sure it is something simple but I dont know how to fix it.
Hardware is phenomenal if you correctly use it.root your phone install the custom rom and just enjoy.i installed ressurection remix os 7.1.2.i m playin PES 2018 asphalt8 on my g360h very smoothly...to do all this root and os stuff refer XDA forum.
Back in 2015 I got this from T-mobile as their base model for $100 and as it sits on the desk next me I must say its held up well. It isn't anything powerful especially by today standards it still is decently fast considering its age and specs. Of course I am not playing games on my phone because I mostly use it for social media. Obviously you can get the j7 now for a little bit more and its far beyond the core primes ability for only 50 dollars more (through T-mobile) if they even have it any more due to high replacement rate of base models. Only complaint is battery life span but since the cover comes of not really that big of a problem since you can replace it.
oh god, I got this nearly 4 years ago, and I'm finally changing it. I got it out of necessity for I think 140 $. It did it's job, worked well, until obviously it started dying out on me, the fact that it lasted so long is a testament of how good this phone is ( for the price ). it's sad buying a new phone after so many years, but oh well.
I received one as a Christmas gift last year and it was just okay. It started random crashing off and on for a couple of months and gradually got worse with other issues. Keyboard has an issue where you correct a letter it deletes every letter between the first and the one you corrected and the stock browser is outdated. Web pages sometimes don't display and I don't like the additional Google Chrome browser so I had to download one that performs and I also ended up downloading a keyboard also. The 1GB of RAM is also an aggravation. My 15 year old Windows XP computer that has 512MB of RAM outperforms it with the exception of YouTube on the browser. I barely run anything on here and the RAM usage runs at 90%. I tried out an identical model and it does the same thing but I didn't use it enough to know if it would occasionally crash but both phones have screen problems the main one being it types l when when you hit the backspace. I've only found it suitable mainly for calls and text. If you want it to run with any kind of speed don't add social networking apps especially Facebook. Just adding it only slows it down enough.
When I plug my Galaxy Core Prime into any USB port on my Lenovo laptop I get the following error message - "The last USB device you connected to this computer malfunctioned and Windows does not recognize it". My phone won't connect to my laptop. The phone charges thru the USB port(s) fine.
