Have just bought an A3 (2017) to replace my S5 mini. Am really pleased with everything except there's NO NOTIFICATION LED LIGHT. This is so annoying - I don't want the "always on display" feature so have disabled that. I often have the phone on silent so relied on the light to alert me to messages without having to keep pressing the power button to activate the display. Any possibility of a workaround or update? PLEASE!!!
Agree with anonymous, wouldn't have got it had I realised there was no LED, now I'm stuck with it for two years. Grrr
Fully loaded features, but no notification LED!!!
I hope "Always On Display" cover that, otherwise an application can be created to simulate led at top of screen ;)
Some deal-breakers are:
Low battery capacity (shoud be at least 2500 mAh)
Dropping True Dual-SIM functionality like A5 2017
Increasing in size but the same screen size as 2016 model
Tan, 07 Jan 2017I'm hoping that A3 already has LED Notification, I hope it would have so that I can have this ... moreNo notification light...it comes with always on screen so you see the details instead of a light.
I'm hoping that A3 already has LED Notification, I hope it would have so that I can have this amazing phone
Well done Samsung for making a small high quality phone.
urix, 06 Jan 2017Oh, yeah! It has 2 gigabytes of RAM only! Just like an iPhone 7.Well played, Sir!
Is it possible to get a free upgrade from the 2015 model to the 2017m
It has such a cute look, when the person holds it in its hand. But the side bezels are extraordinary
Anonymous, 06 Jan 2017You seem like an Apple fan boy. Do some research there are several phones out there that conf... moreDid you even read the comment. He clearly said "iPhone is still the King of the bezel" which means it has the biggest bezel. I hate it when people misunderstand something and then directly shout out their biased opinion
That moment, when GSMArena says the Galaxy A3 2017 is on par with iPhone 7...
hey i didnt get what the article mean im not good at english so will they use touchwiz or grace ux in a3 2017? pls answer ty
It should have at least 3 gb ram and 32 gb storage for 2017 for that much pricing
I would love to get my hands on this if it had 32GB standard. 16GB with a hybrid dual-sim slot is lame.
Gary5, 06 Jan 20172GB RAM in a $300+ phone! That's a deal breaker :-/Oh, yeah! It has 2 gigabytes of RAM only! Just like an iPhone 7.
There is a mistake.
It says that screen size matches 4.7" iPhone and therefore pixel density, as it is also 720p.
No. 720p on 4.7" means 312 ppi. IPhone have 758p display not 720p and therefore slightly higher pixel density of 326ppi (retina). To have same density on a 720p display, it should be 4.5"(S5 mini)
