The Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime is among the first smartphones whose design is inspired by the selfie frenzy. Smartphone vendors have grown to appreciate the selfie phenomenon and the rush is now on to give people exactly what they want.
Here is what the Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime has to offer.
Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime Technical Specifications
Display Size: 5.0 Inches
Display Type: TFT capacitive touchscreen
Screen Resolution: 540 x 960 pixels
Screen Resolution Density: 220 ppi
Screen Protection: None
The Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime display specs are below average when compared to those of its rivals. The 5.0 inch display is large enough, but Samsung was a bit mean on the resolution. A 1280 x 720 pixel display would have been perfect for the grand prime.
It is also disappointing that the Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime lacks a corning gorilla glass layer. Screen protection is more of a standard for mid-tier devices and the Galaxy Grand Prime deserved to have one.
Frame Dimensions: 144.8 x 72.1 x 8.6 mm
Weight: 156 g
Operating System: Android OS, v4.4.2 (KitKat)
CPU: Quad-core 1.2 GHz Cortex-A53
RAM: 1 GB
Internal Memory: 8 GB
Micro SD: Yes, up to 64 GB
The under the hood specs of the Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime are okay for a mid-range device. The performance profile of the device measures well against competition and according to Samsung you stand to enjoy ‘blazing-fast multitasking performance, no matter how much you have going on’
Rear Camera: 8 MP
Secondary Camera: 5 MP
LED Flash: Yes
Excellent camera performance was the main driving force behind the design of the Galaxy Grand Prime. An 8 MP rear camera looks nothing out of the ordinary. The focus here is on the 5 MP front facing camera.
I mean the Samsung Galaxy Grand prime has a better selfie camera than what you will find on the Galaxy Note 4 and Galaxy S5, two of the best Android smartphones on the planet.
A 5 MP selfie camera brings an end to grainy selfies and results to more dabotaps on Instagram.
Battery and Extras
Battery Capacity: Li-Ion 2600 mAh
Battery performance is always an important aspect of any smartphone. The Galaxy Grand Prime packs a Li-Ion 2600 mAh. This is exactly similar to what you will find on the Galaxy Grand 2.
Tech Trends Diary Verdict
The Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime is the first Samsung selfie centric smartphone. The Smartphone comes at a time when the world has fallen in love with selfies.
The Samsung Galaxy Grand prime is, therefore, just like the Galaxy A5 and A3 perfect for Generation Y or just anyone obsessed with selfies.
