macedonia, 27 Apr 2015This phone is not good.I have some problems with the camera.Camera failed and i must to restart.Where did you buy this phone from operator or just the phone with no contract because i am interested for it tnx
I had my A3 11 days when it died on me. I took it back to the agent and an agent looked at it and said there was a problem with the settings. He "fixed" this and the phone worked for 48 hours. It died again. I tried searching the network and kept getting an message that said "Error while searching network." I took it back to the agent who did a sim swap. Two hours later when I switched the phone on it was as dead as ever. I went back to the agent. It was sent it for repairs and I was informed it would cost me R1726,98 to fix it as there is "physical damage" to the sim card reader. I didn't do ANYTHING to damage the phone. It is obvious there was a problem with the phone from the beginning but it only showed up after 11 days. You don't need to be a rocket scientist to work that out.To anyone with a few well functioning brain cells that is obvious. I am thoroughly disappointed with Samsung phones and will never to choose to have one again. I now have a new cell contract but am still using my old phone.
I had purchased Samsung GALAXY A3 phone on 24th February 2015 from Mumbai . The phone screen used to blank out & went blank out from next week from date of purchase. But was rectified automatically. But still continued to go blank automatically for few seconds & come back to normal. Never thought it would be a permanent issue .But on 17th April the phone went blank & after persistently trying power on & off the screen din not turn on. I checked with the authorised Samsung service centre on 17th April itself, they said the display screen is crack & damaged due to hard pressing & physical abuse.
This is to bring to you notice the phone was barely used for few days & was often at home as a second phone. How does a new phone screen panel gets damaged & crack in one & half month.
Also when the phone was purchased from the store, the sales person banged the phone against the shelf to demonstrate the strong amoled screen & said it is very strong & does not break easily even when applied force.
Samsung Customer service has been of no help & has been continuously saying that the phone is physically damaged by the user & have to pay for the repair. They have a scripted text reply each time I call up. Samsung is using cheap quality spare parts & of Chinese quality which do not last long. Please do not buy this Phone , if any one is considering to do so .

How to restart this samsung a3? Any shortcut? Because it hang/froze, takes time to drain the battery.
nickyboy, 23 Apr 2015Wat i know is li-ion batteries dont need to be conditioned.i think you are talkin about the ni... moreBut I assume you did fully charge the phone the first time. You can do whatever you want after the first charge including partial charges, save for overcharging. Despite what manufacturers claim, my experience is that you still have to charge for 8 hours the first time. There are tests done which show that phone batteries have reduced maximal capacity if not properly charged the first time.
