I wonder if this is annoying in da... moreThe 240 Hz flickering on Samsung's (and others) AMOLED screens is not noticeable to the eyes, but still can cause headaches and eye strain to more sensitive people. The flickering is caused by the way the screen brightness is controlled on some phones. This is called PWM (Pulse Width Modulation). It is known that most Samsung phones use PWM.
If you want a phone without PWM, look for IPS screen, not AMOLED. iPhone, Huawei, LG, Sony phones with IPS screen maybe better for you if you read a lot on the phone.
AppleNokia, 17 Jan 2017J7 prime or A3(17) Which one is Good ¿¿None, buy OnePlus 3T. If you want lower range, buy Xiaomi Redmi 4 Prime
I don't understand how always on displays suddenly became a premium thing to have...
My old Nokia Lumia 620 had it in 2013 with way more features than the one's on flagships now. Even the the Moto X and G series had it since a long while. Plus the whole thing had been a staple of Nokia during the good old Symbian era.
Thanks for the review it really save me some money not to buy this crap
Anonymous, 17 Jan 2017Samsung its just good at Galaxy S and Note series.i agree with you
overall this phone is great, but not the spec. with touchwiz, 2 gb of ram is not enough. the system consume a lot of memory. i bet iphone 5s will much snappier than this phone
hhhh seriously!!! 16Go of storage and a hybrid sim/sd card slot, i don't record hd or 4k videos, at all, I don't have many pictures in my phone, nor heavy apps or games, and I still have to use external storege for my 16Go smartphone!!!
Looks like a great mid range phone. I loved My a3 2016 and will probably get this later on (though I prefer the design of the previous model).
The A series, though not powerhouses, perform very smoothly and are quite snappy. Allot better optimised Compared to Samsung previous midrange offerings.
Sebstin, 16 Jan 2017Why its not being released in US?Because it would poach more profitable sales of the S7/S8, which are carrier subsidized/financed.
Nice review. Question now is if this is much of an upgrade over an S5 Mini which is cheaper and has similar specs plus a heart rate monitor.
So basically, it's just a little bit redesigned version of a Galaxy S3!?
Ok... It's fine, only if it would be priced fine too... But it's not.

Dunno if they covered A3 already, they are german based site but offer english translations.
