I have about 6 apps of my own, and that is all I can store on it, google uses 8GB of bull which
I do not want or need. I can not even add another app because the memory is full and no matter how much I try to save apps to my 32GB Storage card, it refuses and I have to start deleting apps to get the space. terrible rip off of a phone in this day and age.
But this is what I expect from Google, stress annoyance and unwanted intrusion. Apple is just as bad, so we really cant escape being mugged off with these devices.
Well, I don't know what to say right now.. Coz I'm speechless!
Before I wanted to buy this phone, but now that I saw all this comments about the phone, I don't know what to do!
The battery goes dead when it is turned on for only 45 minutes. I have replaced the battery but it still goes dead after 45 minutes even if it is only on standby.
it is a very good phone for this price just need more storage. but the camera is quite good with a lot of light I would recommend for someone looking for a cheep phone
Hello! Soon I got new Samsung Galaxy J3 (2016) and found that the back camera makes too noisy images. Even the same visualization before the shooting looks noisy through the display. A colleague told me this is a factory defect and I should return the device. What is your advice? Is this a defect or a setting? Thank you very much in advance!
TheLinuxMan, 08 Apr 2017This phone is slow, useless, battery life is terrible, meaning the phone goes from 100% to 50%... moreoh, it seems you have never used a j3 properly. oh by the way. you need to close apps manually. sorry about that. -_-
Anonymous, 29 Sep 2017Question:Does the secondary camera have a flash?If you mean the camera on the back, yes. The front camera, no.
For its price, it seems good. At least, compared to the iPhone X. 170 euros for something around half the power of something that costs 10x more, its pretty good. Overall, can't go wrong with this one.
I bought the one with 16 GB, 1.5 RAM and SD 410.
It is a nice phone, I got it for 120 $, was online deal.
For this price it is actually value for money
AnonD-678519, 20 Jun 2017Opinion after one year using the J3 2016 (FN version) as a main device.
Pros: AMOLED scree... moreAs a final thought, I know we're talking about a low end device, but around the same price you can get much more elsewhere.
The hardware isn't bad at all but nothing goes beyond the casual user experience - you won't play graphic intensive games on it (but that's OK because first you'd need to actually have storage for it which you don't unless you delete all your apps except the bare minimum), you can take quality outdoors pics assuming you have good natural lightning, otherwise it won't go beyond the average social media snap, the lack of sensors more and more common in devices of any price range won't be a drawback but will still bring some annoyances.
However, the biggest flaw of it (and literally every other low and mid range Samsung device ever) is the lack of software support. Android 5 is usable, but lacks many features (such as using an SD card as internal memory that would solve its lack of internal storage). Apps have more and more features not compatible with it and, worse of all, to this day I've received a SINGLE safety patch almost an year ago. You must be aware of the bigger concerns of Internet privacy and the rise of Android malware, without such essential patches you're highly exposed to cyber attacks
Opinion after one year using the J3 2016 (FN version) as a main device.
Pros: AMOLED screen (great image quality); performs flawlessly doing casual activities (social media, browsing the Web, watching videos), multi-tasking and working reliably without lag; doesn't overheat even under heavy usage; battery usually lasts a full day of regular usage (including gaming).
Cons: outdated OS without any hopes of update, last safety patch dates to August 2016; cheap plastic construction; back camera is terrible with low or indoors light, no matter how much you tweak the manual options; performs badly on heavy resource games; minimal available storage for apps (which leads to) too much Samsung and Co. bloatware (including 200+mb apps); no gyroscope (meaning no Pokémon Go, 360 videos or Google Caedboard) or automatic light adjustment sensors; no reliable custom ROMs to make it up to date.
Conclusion: unless you really want the AMOLED display, this device is outdated and overpriced. Not a keeper or a safe device. Ideal for casual users but not so much for those looking for something to last (if you want so , don't even look at the low/mid end line of Samsung
