Rated 3 out of 5 by from Samsung's amp prime! U I bought phone a month ago and I love the phone great features. But the batteries life sucks take off charger and 4 hours later it's at 30 percent with 3 apps running. Also the Wi-Fi when you shut off it turns it's self back on connecting to a internet not there. Other then that great phone. Thère are better phones out there but good starter phone me and sister have this phone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great phone for a great price Let me start by saying I do not have a ton of apps or need a ton of functionality from my phone. I use the web browser, I use Google maps, take a few pictures, text, and check my email. Other than that, I'm not a huge app user or anything like that. So far this phone has performed flawlessly and I have zero complaints. Plenty of rom, the battery life is certainly better than my old phone, and apps definitely work better with the faster processor VS my old phone.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from New time saver functions waste of time. There is a function that renders the phone muted for all calls just by moving the screen back and forth. I; apparently, do this regularly but was not aware I was muting my phone until I was about to tell another person there was something wrong with their phone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a great phone for the price! The Galaxy Amp Prime is a very nice phone for an affordable price. Even though it is a mid-range device it still comes packed with a lot of very useful Samsung features built in to the software. This greatly helps the productivity aspect of this device. Overall performance of this phone is quite good. It has plenty of RAM so I have never noticed any real slowdown when running multiple apps simultaneously. All in all, a good buy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Phone for a Great Price I absolutely love this phone. I had Samsung galaxy 6 Edge Plus and unfortunately I had to give it up, and was bummed because I love the features of that particular phone. The Samsung Amp Prime fulfills all my needs for a phone and for a tremendous price.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great phone I actually bought this phone for my daughter's about 2 yrs ago.... Yes! They still have them and use them. They haven't had any complaints expect that it doesn't have a flashlight. I also had to by the microchip thing for extra storage of pictures and stuff. But, if you are not looking to spend a lot of money get this phone.... to have teenagers that hasn't had problem with a phone for 2 yrs is a plus. I will upgrade them sooner or later lol.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great plans and a great Samsung phone I am so glad I switched over to Cricket wireless from my last service provider that I was not satisfied with. The sales associate was very helpful and understanding of my needs in a plan and a phone that suits me since I am very partial to a Samsung mobile phone. No it's not a Galaxy S6 or S7 but this phone has everything I need for a fraction of the cost. Thanks Cricket Wireless for having what I need in service plans and a Samsung phone.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great phone! Great features! I have had cell/digital phones for around 20 + years. I took my first "selfie" with this phone. Crickets coverage is better than any other carrier that I have had. I have recommended this service to everyone I know.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good for a while I bought this around December of 2016 and it's July 2017 I'm ready to get a new phone. I'm constantly having to clear caches on my phone and clear history because if I dont it's super slow. Used to have galaxy grand prime had it for about 2 years and then it needed to be replaced this is barely 6 months and it's just frustrating dealing with it. If you dont use your phone for social media like youtube, Facebook and any kind of internet usage not for you. Messaging and phone calls have never had an issue.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It works and last all day So I ported over from boost mobile. I had the Samsung galaxy J3 and when i switched I got the amp prime. I already knew and trusted my J3 so I got the amp prime. Phone just works, as long ur not too demanding like playing a heavy graphic game or have a ton of things open at once. Battery last all day with moderate use. I work two jobs and depend on my phone to last all day. Its a well priced higher end midgrade phone basically

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worst phone I've ever owned I bought this phone extactly a month ago, and it's the absolute worst phone I have ever owned. The speaker works ONLY when people call me. If I call out, they can't hear me at all. It's extremely slow with few apps on it. It freezes and doesn't respond to touch most of the time. I have not dropped it and it has no water damage. I bought this because it had the most 5 star reviews of all the cricket phones but it let me down.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bought Two Neither Works I bought these phones about 6 months ago and have had nothing but problems with them. Missed calls, dropped calls (constantly), distorted sound when talking and have to hang up and call back. It also takes forever to put a call through (sits on dialing for 30 seconds easy), one phone already went out completely on the screen but can hear when it rings no visual at all. These phones are worth the rating they have or any price no matter how cheap.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Good for someone who doesnt do apps or use it alot I purchased 3 of these one for my teen, husband and myself. First thing is if you plan to do anything other than make and recieve calls then you need to get memory card, also if you play any type of games HA good luck on this thing it freezes, locks up and half the time it shuts off. Battery life is great. I am already looking into a different phone and had this less than 3 months.. Great for kids needing a cheap little phone and not out of the pocket much money.. Otherwise GET SOMETHING DIFFERENT!!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not A Good Phone I bought this phone in March 2016 and it's the worst phone I've had since being with Cricket. I habeas to delete old apps so I would have space for new apps. I have to constantly go into Storage in Settings to constantly delete my FB usage so that I can update other apps. I'm now missing calls due to either too soft of a vibrate or the phone not even ringing. I also have to keep this phone on a charger because it doesn't hold its charge like it used to. No other phone that I've purchased through Cricket has ever been this bad.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I've had this phone for almost a year. At first, the phone was great! I'm hard of hearing so I needed a phone that was amplified nicely without a hearing aid.when it comes to this, it is still really great as voices come in pretty clear too. I'm not a very heavy data user so the battery can last for a whole day and sometimes even into a second day for me. However, phones in today's age are supposed to do two things at the bare minimum, call and text... It has a serious issue where I call people and they can't hear me! The magic key to making people hear me is that I restart it and pray to the phone gods it works. Sometimes my prayers are answered, sometimes not. Amazingly enough, when I restart my phone, I sometimes also get a bunch of text messages that were never delivered. Or people say they didn't get my texts. So I either have a bad family and friends (a possibility) or a bad phone. I'm thinking it's the phone. Overall, let's just say that I dropped my phone last week and I didn't even mind. What's the worst that could happen? My phone won't work right anymore?!
