Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Android phone I had this phone since February it's a great phone for its feature but I complaint when making phone calls it takes a long time to contact if I'm at home or on the road I'm going have to take it to see why this is a problem. I never had any problems with my other phones. Does anyone have the same problem I'm having. Also their phone prices is a lot cheaper than other companies.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from How phones have changed! I bought this phone when I drowned my last one- and I cant believe what $50 buys (got a deal from Cricket)! The phone has great storage-16gb- and is expandable to 128 gbs w/ a micro sd card, which I got on amazon on prime day. More storage than I will know what to do with. Calls sound great on both ends, texts speed thru, cameras are certainly more than adequate. Downloaded a printing app and immediately printed out a web page. Phone looks more expensive than it was, and battery life seems to be good. No complaints- buy this phone!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No problems here in love ❤️ I got my phone on February 9th and I love it it's fast it's long lasting never charge but maybe once every two days and the power save mode gives me 24hours on a 10% battery I cudnt believe it. Been with cricket many years as well as my wife and my father and law it's by far the best upgrade so to all the reviews saying that there are problems trust me just go trade it you must of got a dud because I have never been more happy with a almost $200 purchase Cricket is the best iPhone are awful I've always stuck with Android they are much better watch out for the Apple iPhone and the iPad it's all government they get every pic they get it all trust me switch over to cricket and trade your phone within 7days if you have a problem but sounds like picky people who want the iPhone no need this is better than my friends iPhone 7 it won't fit in his pocket it's like a tablet it's too big I'm sticking with the best CRICKET

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Surprisingly Awesome Phone I bought this phone to replace my misplaced Galaxy Core Prime. While the Galaxy Core Prime is and feels like a budget phone the Galaxy Amp Prime acts like a much more expensive phone. It look and feels much more expensive than it is. It is really fast and has twice the memory. It is slimmer, has a larger screen and just feels right. I would recommend this phone to anyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great phone The 3 best features I like about the Samsung Galaxy Amp Prime are: 1. twice the memory(storage space)of my last phone the Samsung Galaxy Amp 2 2. twice the memory(storage space) of my last phone, the Samsung Galaxy Amp 2 3. twice the memory(storage space) of my last phone, the Samsung Galaxy Amp 2 It's great to be able to download new Apps without having to uninstall existing apps to make room for the new ones. For example I used to have to uninstall FB Messenger in order to use the FB app. And I had to uninstall several apps just to allow memory space for updates. Having a SD card installed in my old phone didn't help because some apps that came with the old phone weren't uninstallable.Otherwise this new phone Amp Prime works as well as the Amp 2.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Android Phone There is NOTHING negative to say about this device. 5" AMOLED screen, quad-core,4G and HD video. It has a front and rear camera and a flash. The greatest selling point is affordability. You get all of the Samsung Galaxy benefits in an easy to use and cost effective device.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not what i expected I've had this phone for over 6 mos. Everything is wrong with. The speaker has to be on to answer a call, you can barely hear with volume on highest level and the camera takes the worst pics ever. The manufacturer was to have replaced it, but they sent back the same phone as it's doing the same things. I'd have trashed it, but on a tight budget. As the saying goes, you get what you pay for. Not impressed with Cricket!!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Phone was ok for a month The first few days I got the phone I was having microphone issues.I would call out and the receiving line could not hear my voice. It happens still to this day! The camera is horrible and dark, not crisp or clear. The battery life drains SO FAST it is ridicoulous! Also there is not much card/memory space.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Such a step up at a reasonable price I had the Samsung Grand Prime, which I really liked except for it only having 8gb of memory. That left me not able to install or update the apps that I wanted to. The Galaxy Amp Prime has plenty of memory with Android 6.0 Marshmallow to boot. I really like my new phone, it is definitely worth the upgrade!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Doesn't Last Long - Not Good Quality I just got this phone in September of 2016 and here it is July 2017 and my phone is already at the point where I need a new one. The speaker and microphone have went out on it (and no, I don't listen to music with the volume all the way up so that's not it), I have to push the speaker button every time I wanna call someone because no one can hear me if I don't do that, the phone skips out when I'm texting, the keyboard will randomly just hide in the middle of me texting, it freezes and randomly restarts itself. Considering it was over 200 for me to get this phone completely turned on everything, I'm really disappointed that it's already to the point where I can't use it. This has happened with all Android products I've had, they don't last more than a year MAYBE two. This phone has made me switch over to iPhone and honestly, I couldn't be happier. Don't waste your money on this phone, within the next year you'll have to get a new one so it's better just to buy something that's worth a little more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Breakthrough product. Budget price. I'm a long time Samsung user and never have been disappointed. I know there are phones available at many times the cost of Galaxy Amp Prime, but a prospective buyer should never feel he is sacrificing function for the sake of budget. This phone does EVERYTHING I ask. Buy with confidence.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not one of Samsung's best I've had this phone for months now. It has/is the worst one so far out of all the other Samsung phone I've had. Super sluggish, slow responses, volume is at a minimal tolerance, you can hear caller but caller can't hear you, random glitches, and boring stock interface/interactions. Have to clear cache and use developer option in order to tolerate speed and accessible apps. Oh, I'll still purchase Samsung's products, which I'm waiting to afford one ASAP; just not this one.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not a good fit Though the phone was very nice I was unable to get the service hooked up. After an entire week-end of 'chatting' with one agent after another finally it was decided the problem was a strong enough cell phone service in my area. I wish I'd never signed up for Cricket.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty sweet for an inexpensive phone I've had ATT and an IPhone for prob 7 years. Three in all. I realize all the money I spent was ridiculous. This phone does what I need and I don't have to spend 2-3 years paying for it. If something happens to it I'm only out about $80. Not great but good enough.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from WORST PHONE I'VE EVER HAD This is the WORST phone I've ever had. & I've had my far share of phones. It's extremely slow. It does one thing when you want it to do another. Its flat out terrible!!! DON'T NOT BUY THIS PHONE!!! This phone is garbage. Gave it one star for the storage.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from DO NOT BUY AMP PRIME 2-weeks after I bought this phone when I make out calls, the recipient CANNOT hear me. Only 60% of the time can they hear me if I put it on speaker phone so this means I cannot make calls when in public place. The storage system on this 16GB unuseful phone is completely uncooperative. I have owned 2 other Galaxy S4's, both 16 GB and I could store like 60 apps. This phone runs out of space with only 25 apps and apps I transfer to my 16 GB sd card randomly transfer themselves off the sd back to device.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from good phone I haven't had any issues with this phone. It is reliable and has everything you need. I noticed the battery gets hot if you use it too much. And my OCD hates the black on top and white on the bottom of the screen. Otherwise, It is a good phone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Product The product was great, it was able to update to Android 7.1.1 without a problem. Love the Samsung Features on the device. Camera is kind of decent for its price. Overall, I can see this product being one of the top phones for it's given price.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Standard phone but nothing special Ive had this phone for a year and I am now having to replace it. First the good : the battery life was decent, same goes for the download speed, charge time and storage. The bad: The camera was awful, I couldnt get a clear picture when I attempted to zoom, the durability: now it lasted for a while and I did drop it once and it continued to work but I guess i pushed on the screen to hard or something because now the screen wont work. All in all I wouldnt buy this phone again and neither should you

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love my Galaxy Amp Prime I bought this phone the first of the YEAR! Went in store to get a new phone and an UPGRADE! THEY could give a a discount on the amp prime. Said it was $159.00 and they could let me out door with $79.??. So I thought I was getting a good deal UNTIL ABOUT 30 MINS AGO looking at my rewards and just checking out new phones. There was my phone for $ 79.??. WHAT A GREAT UPGRADE I GOT!! BE SURE TO CHECK THE PRICES ON YOUR PHONE BEFORE THEY QUOTE YOU A PRICE! THANK YOU CRICKET JCM
