Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not Good For Making Calls I loved this phone up until I found out it drops every call I make...kind of defeats the purpose of having a PHONE

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Light, relatively fast, w. quality control issue It is very light, responsive, and fast compared to other budget phones. Internal memory is 16GB and has plenty of space and without a lot of uninstallable crapware. However, mine came with plastic sheet stuck in between touch screen and frame.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It’s exactly what I expected Purchased the Galaxy Amp Prime for my 11 yr old as a starter phone for Christmas. It’s perfect for him, plenty of storage, has all the apps and games he wants, easy to navigate and not an expensive phone ... in case he drops and breaks it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from One star Bought this phone about 3 weeks ago and have been sorely disappointed with the keyboard. Unless you have the fingers of a newborn , this model sucks! I so miss my Windows phone but Cricket does not carry them any more. So, so sad.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great phone for the price I got this phone for Christmas. I had the LG Riso and hated it. This phone as plenty of memory. It is fast to respond and even though I have only had it for a week I am very happy with it. Battery life is better than the LG as well.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Switched from a Lumina I bought the phone a month ago. So far I have no issues with it. My sister has a similar model so i figured I would like it. This is my first android phone in about 3 years. I previously had Windows Lumina phones. I love the switch.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Unreadable screen Phone was great until I dropped it from about 2 feet. Had a case on it. It landed on it's side and looks like a pen broke on the screen. Continued to spread until my screen is completely covered. Cannot read it. Cannot answer it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Awesome phone for a great price!! This is a great phone, I don't regret my decision at all. I've owned both the s3 and s5 and honestly, I'm pretty sure I prefer this one out of all 3. About the ONLY thing I don't like is there is no option for led notifications.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Garbage Phone Had this phone for 6 weeks and all of a sudden the speaker sounded really fuzzy like a bad radio, and then shortly after that it wouldn't turn on. I've never dropped it or got it wet or anything. SIX WEEKS and it broke.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from new phone This phone replaced a Samsung Galaxy SIII. it's faster, efficient, but has too many key strokes to achieve the desired result. I haven't found the microphone for my text messages yet. Something I really miss.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Value For Your Money I was on the lookout for a budget smartphone, and the Galaxy Amp Prime far exceeded my expectations for the money spent. I have a bunch of apps on my phone, often run Google Maps and drive w/multiple ridesharing apps open at the same time, and have NEVER had an issue with the phone freezing or crashing. Samsung + Google = The Dream Team. I love Samsung phones, they are very functional, and you can really personalize your phone (look and function) with themes, layouts, widgets, etc. if you take the time to read the manual there are soooo many little settings I like, like picking up/ending calls with the home/power key, pattern unlock screen, and Google assistant. Samsung + Google. The front selfie camera is nothing to write home about, but the rear camera is still fine. Built in speakers are also not that loud. But it's a budget phone, so you can't expect ALL the entertainment bells and whistles that would come on a $600 phone, though I certainly use my phone for entertainment also. But if you want a great phone you can rely on for productivity/work/everyday life that works, this is it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My First SmartPhone It is wonderful that Cricket Wireless offers such good service and products for a fair price. My Samsung Galaxy Amp Prime is an excellent communication device. I cannot call it just a phone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Samsung makes the Best Phones! This was my 5th Samsung Galaxy Amp Prime, everyone in my family now has one. The features that you get for the money cannot be beat. Updated to Android 7, what can I say, I LOVE this phone!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid Phone The phone operates well however, I wish Cricket had better services for mobile broadband. Their Help Desk denies supporting tablets, but Cricket's legal documents say something different.
