Galaxy PicThe good people at Samsung and Sprint always take care of this cutegeek by sending new products to review. I was thrilled when I got home last night to find the Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime on my door step to test out. Sometimes I get lame stuff to review but I always love reviewing Samsung's Galaxy (even though I own a iPhone). Over the next couple weeks I will be doing an unboxing and testing the Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime to it's limit (FUN!).
