Good first phone for myself

This phone was my first smartphone bought especially for me when I was barely a young teen, at the time I didn't want my parents to fork out for a flagship and I wanted a midrange instead, it was ok and wasn't the best and did the job for me until 2018 when I got a Google Pixel 2 for my birthday in 2018 which was much better.
Okay Phone for a Child or Older Person

I have had this phone for nearly a year as my second driver. I basically just took this phone wherever I went where I might break my main phone. The phone would always crash and have to restart it (for me). Apps like Instagram and Facebook would always stop working. Can't really recommend this phone to anyone.
Samsung Galaxy Core Prime

The guy told me it was designed for the elderly, I am not elderly. Although this was my first smartphone, it did not have sufficient storage, the camera took very poor looking pictures, and you didn't even dare use the front camera. All in all, just a cheap phone.

The Samsung Galaxy Core Prime is now over a year old, but it would be unfair to instantly discount it as a mediocre phone. For this review, I'm looking at the Verizon variant running on Android 5.1.1.
The first thing we see, as with any phone, is the physical build. While this device may not use expensive, flashy materials, it has a very sturdy build with it's removable plastic back and aluminum siding. It doesn't feel cheap, nor does it look as such.
Once we turn it on, the story changes a bit. We're greeted by a screen that isn't very bright, sharp and doesn't produce vibrant colors at all. It gets the job done, but doesn't match up to its competitors.
Luckily, the phone its fairly snappy with basic operations. It managed to score 27K on AnTuTu, which isn't bad, even beating it's slightly larger variant, the Galaxy Grand Prime. Of course, don't expect to do heavy gaming on this budget phone.
The camera is efficient, but doesn't have good low light performance. The front camera is also rather pixelated.
The battery is decent, getting me through a full day with light usage without too many issues. The battery is also removable, so you can always insert a new one.
Multimedia isn't too enjoyable as a result of the low-res display, but it gets the job done. If you find yourself needing more than the 8GBs provided for media, there's a microSD slot behind its back.
Overall, this is my primary device, and while it has its issues, it's a fine phone for a person on a budget. Sadly, there...

one bar where 2 other phones have 3 or more, ridiclously pitiful word check
lisawestvalley has owned it for less than 3 months before publishing this review
Guess some phones sometimes don't get reception at some locations. This is one, where at my mother's home I got no reception, where two much older phones had 3 or more bars. So useless sometimes. Also seems text messages and emails and other calls didn't go through.
The spellcheck is pitiful. Type in nost instead of most, and it only lists words beginning with the letter N. half of all misspelled words fit this category.
The case seems sturdy enough. Only some chargers work on it. It comes with a short white electric cord, and a short USB cord.
Got from PCSmobile for cheap, didn't know they had no warranty with it, even tho I went to the store 3 times in the first week with problems.
