Phone works perfectly fine. Bought from Walmart about 5 months ago no problems. Gf and I bought 2 at the same time, mine had no speed issues at all and runs every app perfectly fine, whereas gf's was laggy from the get go until I factory reset it. Since then works perfectly. Would recommend a case and a screen protector, spent 20 for both and dropped it numerous times with out it breaking. Even fell out of my car going through the neighborhood and was just fine.
onlyon3, 11 Aug 2016I literally only bought this phone because I was told it could run pokemon go, now this phones... moreIt can run Pokemon Go, but the phone lacks a gyroscope to identify its orientation, which means the AR (Augmented Reality) feature in Go will not work. A Prime also only has 1Gb of RAM, whereas Go reccomends a minimum of 2. The game can still be played, though. It just may run slower than you like.
I purchased a 2nd prime core galaxy 1 week prior to going on a 2 wk vacation (road trip). Got it all set, upgraded to international and unlimited prior to leaving. 1st night out-London Ontario-phone quit! no serbvice whatsoever! Got to Indiana, called supplier tech support and they wanted my phone back before giving me another one! spend 4 hours at store, purchased another same phone-SIM car was defective in 1st one! Had the phone 1 week, worked fine, maps, etc. Got to just outside Toronto, Ontario-RUSH HOUR TRAFFIC and new phone did the same thing. Made the rest of my 2 week trip without a phone! NOT HAPPY AT ALL!! This phone did the same thing as the 1st and 2nd ones,-3 phones in less than a month! Plan to buy another tomorrow-but I am upgrading to AT&T-SAMSUNG you let me down and almost ruined my vacation! THUMBS DOWN ON YOUR PRODUCT!
Have had this phone since June have had nothing but problems, have tried 3 different SIM cards,can only make emergency calls only most of the time as keeps telling me I am out of service area & no network connection wherever I am, absolutely useless.
Bought this phone in February 2016. Worked great until three weeks ago and quit making calls on a Friday. Could not wait for a replacement so I purchased new one that lasted 10 days and quit making calls. Returned it for a refund. I work with a man that has this same phone and it did the same thing. They sent them a new SIM card. Obviously it is a manufacturing issue and they should send new SIM cards to all owners. I now have an LG. Jury is out on it.
I would like to start with an 8-star review because it works really well facebook and Pokemon go works really well I really like this phone the camera is good and the battery last a long tome this phone is da best phone in the world

Hey,everyone. Please tell me if core prime 4g has snapdargon flaw....... Please help me
I hate this phone purchased it from MetroPCS. It's a piece of crap. Can't use facebook, calls drop. When able to make a call the person I'm taking with can't understand me. I been back to MetroPCS 3 times just to be told nothing is wrong with the phone. I've called MetroPCS 2 time just to have a tech walk me through steps to resolve my issues. That didn't work. The only two reasons I got this phone is because I thought Samsung made good products and the MetroPCS salesperson recommended it. DO NOT BUY THIS PIECE OF CRAP. I'm going to cut my loss and try LG.
I literally only bought this phone because I was told it could run pokemon go, now this phones saying its not compatible with pokemon go. Biggest slap in the face ever. I immediately hate this phone.
i want to buy a phone, but confused between in this two core prime or j1 ace.which is better,please tell me.
Barely worth the measly $80 I paid for it. My G1 way back when ran better than this phone. Seriously unless your really hurting for a phone don't buy this. I kinda expected more from a Samsung product.
Anonymous, 08 Aug 2016Have 3 of these phones, all of them facebook fails. Removed and reinstalled, even did factory ... moreSame problem here, SD card won't work either, Metro told me it was the update on Facebook that's making it not work and their
working on it.
Had this phone for a year, the quality is shitier than the one I had before (Galaxy Y Young -lasted for 3 years) After just 6 months of purchase I accidentally dropped my phone around 1 feet high and since then I've had to factory reset twice, loosing all my temporary stuff (luckily I have a habit to backup every month), my SD Card port/driver stopped working, so I'm using just the internal memory....and it overheats like crazy.
When the seller had sent it to Samsung which was still under waranty they blamed me for the damage which to be fair its true BUT I don't expect all this for a 1 foot fall. My other phones survived way worse.
Tl;dr this phone is crap don't bug it invest in something with more quality
1 1/2 yrs later the phone is freezing up. I can't make calls. For over 100 dollars why is it that phones bearly hold 2 yrs. Really that isn't very old for electronics. I started having problems after 8 months and it has steadily gotten worse.
