Samsung Galaxy Grand

Expert Review

While it’s not one of Samsung’s flagship Galaxy devices, the Grand Prime is a fairly well-featured phone for a price that’s much easier on the pocketbook than its pricer siblings that are in the tech spotlight. Its 5 inch screen makes the phone very pocketable and it comes with a fairly quick 1.2Ghz processor. Unlike its newer flagship models, Samsung equipped the lower price GRAND Prime with the option of microSD expansion up to 64GB. Using a microSD card is the only option for data storage, with no on-board option, so keep this in mind if you’re considering this device.Images are captured with a very respectable 8 megapixel sensor, with the front-facing camera using a 5 megapixel sensor.

The phone also features Adaptive Fast Charging, meaning it only needs 30 minutes to charge to 50 percent; in the event you need to save energy, a power-saving mode can provide 24 hours of basic use on a 10 percent charge.The phone is compatible with Android Pay (curiously, not Samsung Pay, as it’s more pricier siblings are) and connects via LTE and wifi. Like all of T-Mobiles LTE and WIFI-enabled smartphones, WIFI calling is available, as is voice-over-LTE for calls with other LTE phones over T-Mobile’s network.
