This has been a good phone except it won't allow anything to be saved to the SD card. I'm constantly getting messages that I'm running out of storage space. It's time to get a new phone that will allow me to save to the SD card.
this Samsung galaxy grand prime phone sucks head phones get plugged in and the phone shuts off.. just had an issue with th phone turning off and would not turn back on for thirty or so minutes
One of the greatest Galaxy budget phones ever created. I got my Galaxy Grand Prime on 7-8 January 2015. Still using it and precisely posting this review from it. I use for about 45-50 mins of watching videos or playing normal games... I only go from 100% battery to 88-90%. Goes for easy 5-6 hours if used continously but can for a day or two with normal usage.
P.S. Never install Facebook, Twitter, and Fb Messenger apps. They lag and heat up your phones. Use browsers instead like Firefox or Chrome to visit Facebook, etc.
ANYONE THINKING TO BUY THIS AND IS ON A STRICT BUDGET. THEN THIS PHONE IS TOTALLY MEANT FOR YOU.

I just made my GSMArena account so that I could defend this underrated phone. I'm priveleged to be using the Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime since 7 Jan '2015, so far so good. If you feel abit cynical and assume I'm overstating because I have this phone, trying to feel better than those who have the latest gadgets. But that's not the case here, right now I'm sharing my opinion straight from the 2 years n a 5 months old Grand Prime.
The removable battery gives this advantage over other extravagant price-souring phones that come in non-removable ones, leaving you vulnerable to a hefty damage once your battery stops working. Whereas, my Grand Prime goes for a bulky 5-6 hour period if being used in an unrest state, but can go for a full day with normal routine use with a single charge.
How to get the best battery results like me:
1. Never install Facebook App or Facebook Messenger... drains and freezes your phone.
2. Charge your phone at about 40-60% (nothing happens even if you put it when you get less than 10%).
3. Play games for about 15-20 mins and give a 30 min to an hour rest before playing again.
4. Remove charging adapter when battery reaches above 90% or show see a 100% with a lighting bolt - meaning it'a still charging. Removing at 99% is recommended though.
5. Have Clean Master App and ocassionally clean your files and ram. Note: Don't use other Clean Master fancies like antivirus and such. Keep it clean. Also, add a shortcut booster icon on your device enabling you to clean ypur storage with a single click.
6. Have 600+ mb of 8 Gb storage always available on your device - add a MicroSD for storing your pics and non-playable apps. Games will lag if you put them on MicroSD.
Follow above and you can end up like me. Using Grand Prime for 2+ years and still running as good as new - fast, sleek, solidly robust and sturdy. :)
I purchased a Refurbished Samsung Galaxy GO Prime. I hope it works as good as my friend's GO Prime (she purchased hers brand new in box). If anyone has purchased the Samsung Galaxy GO Prime (not the Express models), I'd like to know if you had any issues with it?
i have using this phone since 2015 and i am fully satisfied with the service of my phone. Its still working nicely as before. Happy to have a phone like this.
SATISFIED USER, 23 Mar 2017i've been using it for 2 years and i'm still satisfied.I hope that my Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime S920L that I get delivered tomorrow, is as good as yours. I have read so many negative posts, and I am wondering if I have made a mistake. The phone is "Refurbished" with Lollipop and has all of the features I was looking for. I was thinking about buying the 365 day, 1500 min. talk, 1500 text, but think I will just start with a 60 day, double minutes plan, until I find out if the phone I now own, is a dud.
Been using this device since Feb 2015 and I must say It's a really lovely gadget. Had abit of problems with apps crashing on Kitkat but once I got the lollipop update everything is as good as new. With atleast 25 apps, I still have 300MB Free Ram. I would Highly recommend this.
My updating lollipop version
But Bluetooth options not working.
And file manager not working properly. Please give me suggestions
