Sprint Product Ambassador

Thinking about making a switch to your first smartphone? Or maybe you’re looking for a smart device that doesn’t have all the bells and whistles, hence being kinder to your wallet? If so, Sprint has a solution for you… the Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime.


Let’s get into a bit about this device...

The Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime is a handsome brushed metallic Android device. It fits comfortably in your hand and pocket, with it being 5.7” tall, 2.84” wide, and .34 thin. Also, it weighs a light 5.5 ounces. Viewing media on this device is appealing with its 5 inch screen.

The Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime has all the main features one needs, front and rear cameras, video recorder, audio recorder, Wi-Fi, 4G LTE, Bluetooth, and it is running Android 5.1.1. It also includes Sprint’s free WiFi Calling (which is not available on all devices, btw), NFC for data transfer and mobile payments, bluetooth, hotspot functionality, and more.

Storage wise, it comes with 8GB on board storage, which is expandable by an additional 128GB with a microSD card. There is a Microsoft OneDrive promotion with Samsung that provides owners with a 100GB of storage space for two years in OneDrive. Be sure to claim that offer by opening the OneDrive app, signing into your OneDrive account, and in OneDrive settings, tap “Apply 100 GB Samsung offer.”
