Innovation is the key to sustain in the smartphone industry, and Samsung understands it very well. The Samsung, recently launched its ‘Galaxy Amp Prime’ smartphone in the market. The phone was advertised for its smart features like clicking selfies using gestures, ultra-power saving modes, easy mode, one-handed operation support, etc. So let’s see how this smartphone works in real life.
About the external dimensions of the phone, it has physical dimensions as 5.6x2.8x0.31 inches, which makes it the normal size smartphone. The phone weighs 139 gm, thus making it a lightweight smartphone. The smartphone has a rather fresh look compared to the other Samsung smartphones present in the same price range. The phone is available in only one colour variants i.e. White. About the display of this phone, the Samsung Galaxy Amp Prime features a 5.0 inches Super AMOLED capacitive touchscreen that provides a screen resolution of 720x1280 pixels that roughly translates to 294 pixels-per-inch pixel density. Though the display features a low-resolution screen, somehow, the screen still looks bright enough. Samsung has advertised the phone as being 15% brighter and 30% clearer than Galaxy Grand Prime. The phone does come with an Outdoor Mode, which the company says that it lets the smartphone increase the screen brightness to maximum for nearly 15 minutes for better visibility in sunlight.
The phone is powered by a 1.3 GHz Quad-core processor which works decently and can play heavy applications easily. The smartphone offers 16GB of internal memory, which could be expanded up to 128GB using the microSD card slot provided in the phone. The phone runs on Android OS, version 6.0 i.e. Marshmallow. The smartphone has a 1.5GB RAM, which in our opinion is less compared to other smartphone presents in the same price segment. The phone supports 4G/LTE networks.
The phone features a 5MP primary camera that is supported by a LED flashlight and features digital zoom, self-timer and geo-tagging. The camera settings include exposure compensation, ISO control, White balance presets and shooting modes consist of Burst Mode and Panorama, etc. The front shooter is of 2MP that the company advertises as capable of taking Selfies without touching the Shutter Button by positioning the hand to take the selfie and a timer starts and once the timer stops the selfie is taken without the user having to touch the shutter button. The images captured by the phone in broad daylight are decent. While the images snapped in dim lighting conditions, lack a certain amount of details, as noise seems to creep in the photographs. The video recording is done by the camera at frames like 1080p@30fps. About multimedia, the phone features a loudspeaker which produces decent sound. A 3.5mm audio jack is also provided in the smartphone. The phone also features MP4/XviD /H.265 player, MP3/WAV/eAAC+/Flac player, Photo/video editor and a Document viewer.
The battery provided in the smartphone works surprisingly well. With 2600 mAh Li-Ion removable battery, this phone can work for an entire day with heavy usage. The battery promises a standby time up to 10 days and talk time up to 22 hours. The battery also promises 77 hours of music playback and 14 hours of video playback time.
