Do you want to sell or trade your Samsung Galaxy Amp Prime?
Yes? Good, you’re at the right place.
But first, I need you to determine if you want to trade your phone for a better version, or if you want to sell it for cash?
After you decide, we’ll walk you through the steps to cash in or trade up.
In the meantime, let’s review your phone.
Despite being laden with plastic, the Samsung Galaxy Amp Prime is an eye catcher. The white plastic in contrast with the black screen gives the Amp Prime a tailored, sophisticated look. On the sides, there’s a silver gutter strip. Not only does it look stunning, but it also provides grip and a bit of dimension to the phone.
The Amp Prime is rocking a 5-inch HD Super AMOLED display. In my opinion the 5-inch display is the perfect size for any smartphone. It’s not too big nor too small, it’s just right. However, the buttons below the display screw the dimensions all up. The two capacitive buttons and physical home button makes the phone bigger than what it needs to be. But considering the phone was released in 2016, I’ll give it a pass.
You won't be disappointed looking at the display. It boasts a resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels and pixel density of 294 PPI, a few pixels shy of Steve Job’s retina display standard. But you won’t be able to notice. The screen is sharp and clear. Plus, there’s four various screen modes to suit your fancy. There’s adaptive display, AMOLED cinemo, AMOLED photo, and basic. Each mode provides a unique preference you can choose from.
Some external features of the AMP Prime include a 3.5 mm headphone jack on the top and a microUSB charging port on the bottom. Volume rocker is on the left and the power button is on the right. On the back, you’ll see a camera lens, LED flash, and two cutouts for a pretty loud internal speaker.
Removing the back panel reveals the 2600 mAh removable battery as well as a SIM and microSD card slot. While we’re on the subject, the battery life is really impressive. You can talk for up to 22 hours and the standby time is up to 240 hours. There’s also an Ultra-Power Saving mode. This mode can extend your battery standby life by 24 hours only with a 10% charge.
Since we’ve already dabbled with the Amp Prime’s features, we might as well dive right into it.
Warning! This is where it gets ugly.
Let’s start off by saying the Amp Prime UI is flatout annoying. Ironically, Samsung's whole intent of this phone was for it to be simple for new smartphone users. Heck, they even went all out and added an Easy Mode, which strips the phone down to its basic core functions. Instead of being easy-to-use, the phone ends up easily pissing you off.
For example, activating apps can be hit or miss. Sometimes you’ll have to tap once, sometimes twice, and sometimes tapping frantically in rage. Needless to say, the phone’s response time is not the best in class.
Tapping and swiping gestures is just the beginning of your problems. The core of your issues lies with the weak 1.3 GHz quad-core processor and measly 1.5 GB of RAM. This hardware makes opening and running apps no better than trying to select one. Once you manage to select an app, prepare to wait a while.
Streaming, downloading, and browsing is just as slow. In fact, everything is slow about the Amp Prime. It’s so slow that not a single Geekbench benchmark score can be found anywhere, astonishing!
Despite the performance being subpar, the operating system—Android 6.0 Marshmallow—was in fact easy to navigate. You can customize the home page with wallpapers, widgets, themes, and grid styles. Plus you get the usual Google preinstalled apps such as Chrome, gmail, Google Maps, YouTube, etc. Plus, there’s a mode to make one hand phone operation easy. To activate, enable the mode in settings and tap the home button three times to reduce the display size.
Now let’s get to the camera.
As you can expect, a 2 MP front camera and 5 MP rear camera isn’t anything to write home about. The rear camera takes decent photos for what it is. You can make use of the few photo editing tools to get the best out of the camera. There’s also camera modes such as Panorama, Pro, Continuous shot, Beauty face, Sound and shots, as well as sport.
Although the Amp Prime camera pixels aren’t enough these days, it still shoots pretty good quality videos in 720p at 30 fps.
Now that we got the review out of the way, let’s discuss your selling options.
There’s two available deals for your Samsung Galaxy Amp Prime. You can choose to:
Sell Samsung Galaxy Amp Prime for cash or
Trade in Galaxy Amp Prime
If you want cash return, this option is for you.
Preparing to sell your Samsung Galaxy Amp Prime is pretty easy. Just follow these steps:
● Transfer all your files to another device or an external storage device
● Make sure you remove all passwords and give access
● Restore your phone to factory settings
Done! That’s it.
Now you can sell your phone.
If you don’t want cash, you can trade in your Samsung Galaxy Amp Prime instead.
Just follow the same steps listed above.
When you finish completing the steps, trading your phone will be a cinch.
That pretty much wraps everything up.
Now it’s all up to you.
Will you sell your Samsung Galaxy Amp Prime for cash, or maybe you’ll like to trade it in for something else of your choosing?
Either way, make sure you get the best deals and services by using sites like Gimogo as a medium for trade.
