Herry , 01 Oct 2014compare with Sony Xperia c3 today.. It's available today here in India.. Difference catch eyes... moreThe 64bit processor inside make this phone ahead of the competition, alot better than the c, 64bit is very important, this phone would last longer than the c. The downgrade in resolution will ease up on the GPU. The design is kinda like galaxy j, so maybe it has a metal frame, not a bad design. I think this is a great phone if not over$400
Herry , 01 Oct 2014compare with Sony Xperia c3 today.. It's available today here in India.. Difference catch eyes... moreThats very correct herry.touchwiz is tottally craps eats lot of
ram.Sony has reduced its prices and they gives better hardware,better display,better build ,better audio quality,better updates and everything. Unfortunately samsung have customer base of people who are not technically sound.Most of samsung mid and low range customers are not smart buyers.
Samsung use old lpddr2 ram while sony uses latest lpddr3 ram . Samsung customers are so loyal that if you prove them how others are better than samsung they will not admit it.I have never seen such a loyal customers. They are encouraging samsung for bringing such a craps again and again. Most low and midrange mobiles dont get any update and these loyal customers don't want to say anything about it.
5mp front camera? That's more like it! Few years from now smartphones should have 8mp front camera and 16 on the back. Good quality selfies lol
Samsung insist to market products with same specifications and different codes with slit changes on same motherboard and built in memory capacity.
Why they do not jump to high specs such as increasing the built in memory and capacity of the external, c.p.u., cameras, screen clarity for the dual sim units and the newer models to verify new ones from old ones?
Romelahad, 01 Oct 2014Same desige. Same model. No change.The only changes was the 5MP front Camera though.
Amir-senpai, 01 Oct 2014All the problems you stated are because you've never had experience with it and it's not avail... moreYou are right for very cheap phones less than 100$ where Samsung phones cannot compete with reliable local brand, even though made in China.
But for middle and high range phones, brand names are the best in the long term. People will buy a second hand Samsung phone, not a Huawei (not even sure how to write it...)
compare with Sony Xperia c3 today.. It's available today here in India.. Difference catch eyes by quality and every way of specification.. No HD display no slim design always boring design.. Used both cell for 10 minutes.. Samsung's nature Ul is so much buggy.. Almost 65% of ram used in UI and after that it wil start leg.. Sony have 45% ram used in Ul and ram management is more better than Samsung
.so i bought xperia C3 and after installing more than 55 application still ram is free at 35 percent and camera is more better because of 65 angle view so and both cameras r HD.. Choice is yours.. If price is not matter then go for xperia C3.. My previous phone was galaxy grand 2.. Was so leggy and poor ram management.. Final words i m happy wid sony Xperia..
Anonymous, 01 Oct 2014lumia is not android ok....I know very well lumia is not android...but the samsung is selling this crap on the name of selfie phone...but lumia 730 hardware and camera is much much better than this crap.
TyM, 01 Oct 2014Yeah, buy that chinese phone. And then, try to find accessories for your unknown expensive chi... moreAll the problems you stated are because you've never had experience with it and it's not available officially in your country. Huawei and XiaoMi are now official in Malaysia, I have the RedMi 1S for 2 months and it's perfectly fine, believe it or not, my friends find my phone to be impressive considering the price point. MIUI is smooth than my laggy experience on the touchwhiz UI on my previous Galaxy Grand.
The Core 2 and the S Duos 3 is already ddisappointment for consumers, it would be a gamble to buy the Grand Prime to see the quality.
Its a downgrade over grand2 in terms of ram.
Its highly overpriced will be available in india at the price of 17.5 k.
No gorilla glass.
No extra mic for noise cancellation.
No android l.
Very less resolution for display.
1gb lpddr2 ram.
But I am sure samsung will find enough enthusiast
fools for it.
TyM, 01 Oct 2014Yeah, buy that chinese phone. And then, try to find accessories for your unknown expensive chi... moreThat's probably because those Chinese phones aren't easily available in your country.
I think $280 is way too much considering the entry level specs compared to the best budget phone available, the Moto G.
Amir-senpai, 01 Oct 2014I'm sorry, have you heard of XiaoMi RedMi Note, Huawei Honor 3C, Huawei Honor 3X and Lenovo Go... moreYeah, buy that chinese phone. And then, try to find accessories for your unknown expensive chinese phone...try to impress your friend saying you have a Xiaomi phone...try to use the warranty if it is not working...try to have the firmware updated...try to get it fix when it has problems...try to sell it after a while and it is worth next to nothing...
Trying to save money will make you lose more.
Amir-senpai, 01 Oct 2014I'm sorry, have you heard of XiaoMi RedMi Note, Huawei Honor 3C, Huawei Honor 3X and Lenovo Go... moreVery Very Lame Comparison and Xiamoi is not that easy to get hold off! For other brands Please Yourself check reviews n understand that yes those things are available cheap but are they seriously worth it? Check for Real Life Usage Yourself Guys n Simply pick the one which suits ur pocket! Why can't be it that simple? No Reviews no hands on nothing in market yet its a fail on specs, on price, on touch wiz n what not? What if it turns out to be a decent hand set?
Finally Snapdragon 410 & Good specs for the Price! Looks good on specs but only con is Screen Resolution though not much of a deal breaker! To the gentleman with Mediatek Stuff & Bashing Samsung Here simple request is to search for reviews, check optimization n support that Mediatek Chips have or better still see the Product in hand before posting silly comments! Samsung Better wake up quick as Nokia 730 is a little better at same price though not sure how 64 bit Snapdragon will pan out! Guys kindly use the phone n post! Let me n others know how is it in real life!!

I'm sorry, have you heard of XiaoMi RedMi Note, Huawei Honor 3C, Huawei Honor 3X and Lenovo Golden Warrior A8? All of these have 5mp front camera great for selfies. The RedMi Note and Honor 3X has a 5.5inch 1280x720 HD screen rather than a 5 inch 960x540 qHD screen. The RedMi Note and the Honour 3X has pretty is pretty much similar, a powerful Mediatek 1.7ghz octa core and Mali GPU rather than a Quad core 1.2ghz, even if it's a "Snapdragon" processor, it's no powerful as the Honor 3X and RedMi note. And it's also worth mentioning both the Note and 3X has 2GB ram instead of 1GB ram. And also, it has 13mp shooter at the back. The Lenovo Golden Warrior A8 is the same thing as the Note and 3X except the screen size, which the Golden Warrior A8 is 5inch but still the same resolution the Note and the 3X. The Golden Warrior A8 has dual LED flash compared to the single LED flash from the 3X and Note. The Huawei Honor 3C is the main rival of the Grand Prime with 5inch, 8mp back and 5mp front. The processor might be a mediatek, but not all snapdragon processor could beat the Mediatek according to level. The Honor 3C has a higher screen resolution of 720p HD instead of qHD.
And the price of all above are still cheaper than the Grand Prime
Do your research.
