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.

Been using this phone 4 almost 3 years now and I think is time to change my daily driver... Been thinking to buy the S8 or the iPhone 8 to replace this old... Sturdy phone.
I remember seeing an advertisement about this phone back in 2014 and I had this great desire top own one, which I did for Christmas.
I have been using my Samsung Galaxy Core Prime for almost 3 years now and it still works perfectly from when I purchased it. This one is a keeper.
I am using for more than 8 months.......I bought used one & still working perfectly
Hi guys to those experience 30% phone shut down well do this ,, ..
1. turn on your phone make it drain the battery 0%
2. Remove the battery pack then put back (repeat 2 times)
3. put it back the battery pack and charged at least 50%
4. remove the battery and use it, when you reached the battery to 20%
5. recharged your phone until 80% then use it normally. the battery back to its normal until you observed to its stable performance, charged to fully,
cause of issues ( Battery power saver always swtich on,,cause of battery program accurate or unstable, we can use this in thye right time, in purpose )
i hope this helps
So I have had this phone for approximately 2 years but the battery has gone from bad to worse and im not sure if it is too do with how long I have the one but it has now started dying on 60-70%. About 3 months ago, it used to get slow and shut down on 59% and now on 70 it will glitch and automatically shut down and when I turn it on the battery will be on 1%. Any tips on how I should make my battery last longer or is it really just to do with the length of time I have had this phone for?
had it for over two years. recently glitching out/opening apps n closing apps by itself/turning off at 30% battery. now it is completely stuffed, continually getting pop ups saying Google Play services has stopped.
Had my core prime for 3 years, no dramas just a good solid phone.
I used to have this phone back in 2016, after my past one bricked itself. It's now the phone my brother uses, and it still functions perfectly.
It's really good for its price, nothing out of this world. The camera is fine (waaay better than my past ZTE). My only problem was with the storage, as 8GB wasn't enough for me, but that's a matter of preference. And sometimes it was a bit laggy, but, to be fair, I did use it to edit videos, and let's not forget it has 1GB of RAM. Also, I loved customizing the UI of this phone. It's the only thing I really miss.
TLDR: It's good. Good enough.
Bought in Decembr 2015 and is still great only problem calls go to voicemail after ringing only twice! No one can help says it is setting by manufacturer
