Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime
Over the past year, Samsung has released many top of the line phones that meet everyone’s expectations but they may be out of some people’s budgets. They are worked hard in recent months to create an affordable mid-range Android phone to widen its audience but still keep the quality that they’re known for. If you’re worried about spending too much for a phone you may otherwise break or you just need a replacement until you can afford something more expensive, price-wise, the Galaxy Grand Prime is a great alternative. Even compared to other mid-range smartphones, the Grand Prime outdoes them all but unless you reside within the select parts of Asia where it is currently available, you may never get the chance to test this out.
Samsung announced that the Galaxy Grand Prime would go on sale in India starting October 3rd but has not yet announced a Dubai release date or a date for any other country for that matter. The chances of full international availability seem slim at this point but if you are in the Middle East or other Asian countries, chances are high there will be the chance to purchase the Galaxy Grand Prime.
Some things that are currently known include multiple color options including both white and black as well as a dual-SIM variation which was released on the 3rd as well. The variation with no double SIM capabilities are expected to expand to other countries by the end of the year but no words on the dual-SIM yet.
The Galaxy Grand Prime is aimed to be a phone featuring entertainment and media in the forefront. A high quality 5 megapixel front-facing camera allows fun face to face video calls as well as that infamous “selfie”. Although that is one of the main selling points, the Android phone is also powered by the newest Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 64-bit chipset which features a 1.2 GHz quad-core processor as well as 1 GB of RAM.
In addition to these already impressive internal specs, there are 8 GB of internal memory which has the capabilities to be expanded up to 64 GB with a microSD card. The 8 GB of internal memory may not be as much as other phones but it helps to keep the price reasonable for most consumers. Samsung did consumers a great deed by “cutting corners” in all the right places to provide an affordable device. The display is also not top quality but the difference with the 5” qHD 540x960 display will be barely noticeable. There is also a 2600 mAh battery which could have been better but will still power the phone for at least a full day’s regular use.
A strong point about the Galaxy Grand Prime is the Android 4.4.4 KitKat operating system. There is no word yet on whether or not it will be offered with the Android L upgrade but chances are it will.
The Bottom Line
Even though the Galaxy Grand Prime Dubai release date is not yet known, it is currently available in India and hopefully soon to be available in a larger range of countries. The quality compared to the price is outstanding which will make this the go to device for everyone. With 3G connectivity, a quad-core processor, and 1GB of RAM, the Galaxy Grand Prime is satisfactory at the least.
