Review: Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime for Cricket Wireless
The Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime is perhaps not so grand as its name, but is still a good deal for price-sensitive shoppers. The phone offers a respectable mix of features and performance for its $180 price tag.
Samsung might have overdone the chrome accents a bit, but the silver lining here is that the chrome adds a bit of personality to what otherwise might be a rather dull design. The Grand Prime is strong, easy to hold and use, and has a handful of features (memory card, removable battery) that many consumers demand. The screen could certainly be a bit better, (a good oleophobic coating would do wonders,) but call quality was excellent. The phone did well on Cricket's network and delivered a full day of battery life without question.
On the software side, the Grand Prime relies on Samsung's TouchWiz UI over Android 4.4. Some might call the UI a bit heavy-handed, but most Android devices have their own look and feel. Google's apps all function as intended, which is to say the phone handles the basics with ease.

The Grand Prime doesn't have the strongest selection of media apps, but that's what the Play Store is for. Importantly, the camera does a good job and should make most people happy considering the phone's retrained aspirations.
Bargain seekers who prefer prepaid services to signing contracts would do well to pick up the Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime.
