I bought the Core Prime after asking the Verizon person what was comparable to the Stratosphere II (which they no longer make. A shame, because it was great). She suggested this.
The memory is HORRIBLE and I had to buy an SD card because of lousy memory. Battery life isn't so hot, either. I'm not a gamer, don't stream movies, etc, and yet, it is what it is. Wouldn't recommend.
Anonymous, 08 Dec 2015Replace it. My core prime works fine.Mine does the same thing, freezes all the time. They wouldn't let me replace it either. They said I could buy out the rest of what was owed on it and get a new phone was the best I could do. So for now I'm stuck with it
CHMF , 08 Dec 2015Don't keep micro sd card in the phone, all your favourites should be in the 8gb device memory,... moreMine also freezes all the time. I can't keep any apps on the phone, the all have to be in the sd card or at least I have to move them to the sd card for every update or it won't have the space to download the system update. I've had to call and have them system restore my phone twice in 6 months due to update download issues
Excellent phone for it's price. I have no lag on this phone. Bought Core Prime VE 2 months ago. Autofocus is good, but camera quality can be better. Just don't install many apps like game boosters, ram cleaner etc. For me , phone works just fine. Always close recent apps and you'll be lag free. :))
Anonymous, 05 Dec 2015Okay. So I got my phone (Samsung Galaxy Core Prime.) I swear, either the woman who was setting... moreDon't keep micro sd card in the phone, all your favourites should be in the 8gb device memory, also import everything from your micro sim card to device memory so not to complicating the system operation.
Having problems signing into google on phone even though on iPad it's no problem and they saying I have right password , not first problem like this I have encountered seems to be an issue with anything that looks for a password and a confirmation always says they don't match
The worst phone I ever had! This IS the first review I've ever written about a product. I absolutely hate this phone and I'm going to call straight talk and let them know its the worst product they ever offered! There are so many things that this phone does not do that its too many to mention. One in particular, tapping the applications and having to tap them again several times to make the phone work. Very frustrating!

Bargain Hunting, 04 Dec 2015Some how I think it is a very best smartphone at the price with Digital TV. Very smartphone with Digital TV at a bargain price!!
this mobile has amazing quality due its processor and storage. I love this phone Samsung galaxy core prime. its has amazing features and has 8 mega pixel camera 5 megapixel rear camera 32gb expandable memory.
Laurina, 04 Dec 2015Is there a flashlight on the Galaxy Core Prime?? If so how do I find/use it??Open play store app --> look for a flashlight app. There are hundreds of them.
I have one called "Flashlight" from RV Appstudios. I didn't pay to unlock the features and it has plenty free features anyway. I don't think you can go far wrong by picking a free app of some sort.
johnathon staton, 03 Dec 2015im bout to get that phone is there any thing bad about it??It has low specs compared to the other samsung models. Of course it has a low price too. I am certainly not unhappy with it. The battery can drain slightly quick perhaps. But for the most part, it looks the same on the outside.It is not overly heavy. It isn't too slow for me (how could it be with a quad core?) The screen is a low resolution, but I can't see that fine anyway.
I don't think I would get any benefit out of paying more. It depends on what you want. You can easily pay double, get twice the memory, resolution, camera etc. But would you fill the memory? Can you see the resolution? and do you have money?
Laurina, 04 Dec 2015Is there a flashlight on the Galaxy Core Prime?? If so how do I find/use it??no but u can go to play store on it and download a small app that lets u use camera light and it works great. simply push button screen and it comes on. I love it on mine.
