Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime Pro Specs Review

Design & Display

This is one of the very few budget phones in Kenya with a Super AMOLED display.  Although the resolution is not impressive (540 pixels x 960 pixels), it is acceptable for a budget phone with a 5.0 inch display.   Not much can be said about the design of the Galaxy Grand Prime Pro 2018.  It follows the usual Samsung design used in other phones in the budget range.

Hardware, Software & Performance

This device is powered by Snapdragon 425 chipset coupled with 1.5GB of RAM.  It runs o Android v7.1 Nougat. With this phone, you should expect all the usual apps to run without any issues. You can play “light” games without lagging. However, if you are heavy gamer, the J2 Pro may not be the best phone for you.

You get 16GB internal storage space.  Although this may be sufficient for many people, it is a little disappointing to some since many phone below 20K launched in 2018 provide 32GB internal storage space. Fortunately, there is a dedicated microSD slot that support cards of up to 256GB.


This phone comes with an 8MP rear camera and a 5MP front facing camera. This is also underwhelming because many phones below 20k launched in 2018 come with 13MP cameras. Both the front and the rear cameras feature an LED flash for low light photography.

Battery & Extras

The battery on the Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime Pro packs 2600mAH.  This can obviously power the phone through a day of moderate use thanks to its power efficient Snapdragon 425 chipset CPU and its Super AMOLED panel.

The Grand prime Pro supports 4G networks.
