When i'm using data connection through hsdpa the phone is much hotter than through LTE. Have you noticed such phenomenon? I must add that it's occurred despite of better hsdpa signal quality.... strange.
jade, 09 Mar 2015is it natural to samsung a3 will heat if you use data connection?Yes. Mine does heat up too when using data connection
liechee, 25 Oct 2015I just got this phone about 2wks ago. I downloaded apps. And then it just started freezing and... moreI agree with you. Whenever I download an app in play store, it stops suddenly and u have to go back again to redownload it. And also, when I tap on the camera, it loads really slow. And sometimes when I use the facebook app, it says "Facebook not responding".
for some or other reason i still prefer S4 mini over this one. my internet browsing never got this boring and frustrating. slow, not responding, most apps not stop working while busy with them. touchwhiz stops working. felt like throwing it against the wall at some point. any ideas how to better this beautiful phone.? got a 2015 model.
Ps: hopefully updating the system is the key
My A3 is an SM-A300F. After plugging my earphones that came with a Galaxy S2 in for a few minutes, it just decreases my volume all the way. Whenever I increase it, it decreases all the way again. Whether the current volume type is Ringtone or Media, this happens almost everytime I use them.
Is there a solution to this? :(
Kobby, 24 May 2016Pls i want to buy an A3 i want to be sure if its a gud fone and does not have any issues.For me it's avery good phone
you should trie it
please any body can tell me how to block contact number on samsung galaxy A3
I used this phone for almost a year now. It is a entry level phone so it is not very responsive or fast.
If you use a few apps at a time, the phone will get very slow. This is especially frustrating if you are using it as a GPS device when you are driving. There are times when the GPS will delay so much that I can't navigate with it (like give instruction to make a turn after I passed the road). Because of this I do not upgrade the Map app as it makes it worst.
The camera is slow at taking pictures. You will have to hold the phone for 2-3 seconds stead after you click in order for the phone and camera to capture a picture. Move the phone too quickly after you click, the picture will be blurry.
The sad part is that there is not much custom ROMs that support this phone so i cannot root it.
Other than that, it is a small phone which I enjoy. It is small enough to put in my pocket and not too heavy. Build wise is quite sturdy as I dropped it a few times (on marble floor, cement) and there's no problem.
Someone said that u won a Samsung Galaxy a3 for 4000/- .is that true?
Can anyone give a phone worth 14000/-to 4000/-
Pls i want to buy an A3 i want to be sure if its a gud fone and does not have any issues.
one is shocking. It freezes constantly, it overheats, the battery is rubbish, Ive constantly got no signal and its states No network emergency calls only. The only good thing is the camera is good. Worse phone Ive had
Please don't buy because main speaker sound is very very slow, you will never know when your phone is ringing/vibration on pocket or on bed.
mr crab, 11 May 2016hello..i want ask some question? what a big different samsung galaxcy alpha n samsung galaxcy... moreRedmi Note 3 is better, but you have to keep in mind, that A3 is may be faster. I have MI4 which is much more powerfull than A3, but in daily usage, A3 performs faster.
Anonymous, 18 May 2016All these 1.5 GB RAM being pushed by Samsung tends to start lagging after some months of usage... moreNope not true. My A3 version has 1GB RAM and it is still running smoothly after 1.5 years.
A3 user, 09 Mar 2016Does anyone experience phone hanging?Yes it hangs often. And sometimes when i open an app, it says *name of app* is not responding. And sometimes it gets hot when using certain apps.
