alen, 19 Mar 2018i cannot update my grande prime frome android version 5.1.1 to higher version. how can i upgrade? It can't upgrade
This phone is very long lasting and useful. Very affordable as well. I would say its the best phone i had as a student
Bought this phone on Jan '2015 and ever since that date I had no issues whatsoever. Good battery life as well... lets me run a 90-120 mins movie losing just about 20-28% of battery out of 100% even after a solid routine use of 3+ years. All you guys have to do is delete those lavish apps like Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat, Messenger, etc... just keep Whatsapp as it works just about fine. Use Chrome or Firefox to run Facebook, Twitter, etc. Do have a SD Card upto 16-32gb for movies, pictures and reads... but don't put games into the external memory, as it can lag your device.
One of the best budget smart phones ever made. The Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime is even popular today and has a good resale.
Its a worst phone.Dont buy this phone.When we connect internet it will get strucked.Sometimes anything gets crashed.Its a worst phone of my life.
why am i only having the option to connect to wcdma only. no 4G option under mobile networks
Nate, 14 Mar 2018Just get an sd cardGetting a sim card doesnÂ’t help anything. It won't solve any problems. I know because I did just that, and I still have all of the problems you all have stated. It's a peice of shit phone. Mine won't even let me read my emails or delete them. I know it needs to update, but I've gotten rid of almost all my apps. Never again will I ever waste money on this crap.
The memory is not good when you buy the phone most of it already used up by the existing applications so why say that the phone has 8 gig. I was very dissapointed by that

Nate, 14 Mar 2018Just get an sd cardYou wont get space even if you will insert sd card. What a f*** phone
Android go (custom rom) will bring this phone back to life. Great phone back in early 2015. Obviously things have changed quickly in the smartphone market today.
Hello!

I need your advice. From Rwanda

This phone is very slow with a large bezel and the storage is very little that it could only fit only several apps only

how can i upgrade?
If you consider buying this phone be aware that you only have just barely enough room to fit a few several apps and maybe 2 medium sized games before you're out of space and updates are impossible. The front-facing camera for some reason on my grand prime enlarges my face and distorts it and I never touched the camera options. If you are also impatient... you'll want to smash this phone against the wall because of how incredibly slow it operates with just basic functions as opening contacts, snapchat, instagram, web browsers... anything you open it will freeze for about 10+ seconds or more... I cannot open any app without having to wait for it to respond after freezing as soon as I open an app.
Pros - Cheap
Cons - Everything. Use it just as a basic phone and don't install too much because you're gonna need it for updates.
