The new Galaxy Grand Prime sports a 5.0 inch qHD (960×540) TFT screen and comes packed with Android 4.4.2 KitKat OS, 1.2 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon quad-core 64 bit processor, 1GB RAM, 8GB inbuilt storage (expandable up to 32GB) and 2600 mAh battery. The Galaxy Grand Prime also features a 5 MP front facing camera which makes this device something like a dedicated “selfie” smartphone. It comes with a traditional 8MP rear camera with LED flash and 1080P video recording.
The screen isn’t the best we have seen on a phone. It only features a qHD screen (not QHD). The resolution is fairly okay but comes on its 2014! The mediocre screen could be a big deal for buyers. You can easily get phones with a better screen at this price point.
However, the 5MP camera of this phone is a well-added benefit. It has a wide-angle lens that helps you click photos with groupies.
