Can anyone confirm if J3 is made of Asahi Dragontrail Glass? The Samsung site does not confirm so.
I have only had 4 other phones in my life but so far this one is the worse. It barley holds a signal so I can use data and when it does get a signal and use my data it won't register that it's connected to wifi so using data is unnecessary. It refuses to work with the three apps I use the most. I have tried uninstalling the apps and reinstalling them and still had the same problems. I will say the phone is durable and light weight which is all I like about it.
mir, 17 Jul 2016I feel sorry for any person who would get suckered into buying this thing.Totally agree I hate it!
AnonD-269812, 26 Jul 2016It has hanging problem. I bought 2of them both has same problem.Its a joke had to reset twice only after having two phones for two days they charge slow and the quality on the picture is tr worse I have ever seen.
Where can i get a phone that connects to PC's using the USB. the settings on J3 (2016) are not working if you know any set that works then please let me know. my skills could be limited by my handset.
people have said it all. i feel zzzzzz....... with this fone.
i wish i knew
It has hanging problem.
I bought 2of them both has same problem.
Phone is ok i guess. Just a cheap knock off of the s6. Glitchy at times,doesnt have the fast adaptive charging feature like the 6. Camera sucks major ass and takes forever to download applications. Wish it had a bigger keyboard like the 6 and the samsung health app. Other than that, it will donfor now
gsmarena told this phone isnt for gaming except for basic light 2D game. but my friend have this j3 with same spreadtrum chipset as gsmarena review and this one can handling asphalt8, real racing 3, gta sa in highest graphic setting without issues. so what the point they told something like that?
I bought it a month ago for my mom. The only thing she does with her cell phone is making calls, texting and make video calls . Also she uses it as alarm clock. She is pretty happy with it. But why?!
1- Because it's Samsung, it's long time she is using Samsung's phone so menus doesn't look new and strange for her, she tried few other Android phones but it was hard for her to get use to them.
2- she trusts the brand, with Hua*** and Len*** all she experienced was dealing with costumer service, but with her old Samsungs all she did was buying a new battery and replace it by herself.
3- The screen is very readable for her eyes
Long story short, every product targeting its own costumer, If you believe this is not a good phone, it is because it didn't design for you.
If you think it is expensive, Maybe you don't earn enough. Nothing is expensive or cheap without a reason. When you see iph*** uses dual core processor , 1gb RAM and 8MP camera with that price tag definitely it has a reason.
for this price i will buy lumia 640, much better phone than this shamesung sh*t
Overpriced and crappy. My mom had one for a month, screen had scratches on because Dragontail glass is useless. The UI is same old Samsung bloat. Gave her a Moto G3 which cost the same, much better phone.
This is not a value smartphone. This is pure laggy rubbish. Dont favorize Sammy!
Cortex A7 with 1.5gb ram in 2016 and value driven? If that was $80 maybe.
ithehappy, 18 Jul 2016"The UI runs smooth!" Are you guys serious? I find it so hard to believe an entry level Samsun... morethese j series share same ui with s6, note 5 and s7. new touchwiz run smooth on them, as j5 owner i can confirm that.
"The UI runs smooth!" Are you guys serious? I find it so hard to believe an entry level Samsung phones has optimised TouchWiz! Don't know! The camera samples are pretty bogus anyway! I fail to see a single point to get this over other phones in this segment like Moto G v3!
Kudos Samsung, once again.
