i like this phone very much but the camera is not that good for me . i think it must be like the galaxy a5 .
Using last 3 months A3, This phone looking good, slim and stylish. Upgraded lollipop 5.0.2 and getting something problem like battery drain, overheating phone, and slow running etc.
My suggest is
1. After upgrade lollipop reset your phone one time.
To reset your phone to default factory settings:
Press and hold the following button:
Volume up + Power + Home.
This will bring up a small menu.
Using the volume keys navigate to "Wipe data/Factory reset"
This option should restore your mobile to its default settings.
2. Avoid heavy ram using software.
3. Do not install CM cleaner, facebook and heavy loading games software etc.
I hope your phone will be running smooth.
And also you have experience, share it. Thanks.
I really think this is one of the greatest Iphone 5S/5ish alternative, although it's not a perfect phone. A few things this phone does better are :
- the display (super AMOLED ftw)
- the battery life (the display and the small screen makes up for it)
- the design
the cons are
- low resolution display ( this i can still bear with)
- low mid end processor ( the poor gpu can barely keep up with the animations, this is probably a deal breaker along with the low res display)
A3 absolutely phenomenal compared to all the handset i've used, downloads very quick, pictures amazing, it once hanged after a month then i restart it from there i've never experienced any problems with A3
Do not upgrade to lollipop it drains your battery, swithes on & off willy nilly and can only support a few apps after which it refuses to download. The design is sleek though.
I bought this phone recently and being a mobile/electronics part-time technician, I cannot find any fault on this phone. Its seems to be a perfect phone at a perfect price! I wonder how can we receive negative comments on this phone. Come'on friends (who are posting negative comments), be real, maybe you bought chinese copy of this mobile at very cheap price, that's why you are facing problems. The display of this mobile is simply awesome. Performance is OK as Im still on Kit-kat, not yet tried Lollipop.. I installed almost 10 applications which i use often and it works perfectly. This phone is worth of every penny.
This phone is amazing, believe me. I don't like phones with 5.0 or more display. A3 has very suitable display size, you can use this phone with one hand. No any problem during 8 months, it has amazing selfie camera, rear camera also very good, it's real 8 MP camera. Sexy fully metallic body. Anda please note that there are two variants of A3, duos and single sim. Single sim variant SM A300FU the best variant...
This phone sucks. It hangs ALL THE TIME. And bottlenecks on everything. Not responsive at all. It makes me want to break it against the floor. Bad purchase. Very bad. (battery life is awesome though)
Anonymous, 29 Oct 2015i compare this phone to my core prime SM-G360H ,my core prime much much better than this phone... moreHowever my a3 is 9 month old too, and no problem even on lollipop?

Suckss man this phone is always being hang and hang almost more than 10time in a day
After i upgrading in lolipop it has more problem of hangs and getting slow how i can download my last veraion kitkat?
i compare this phone to my core prime SM-G360H ,my core prime much much better than this phone,this phone hanging and heating problem,but i use core prime 9 months not any hang or heat issue,work amazing
Phone is an excellent looking phone but performance is very poor. It is less than 3 months old. When I play "Kandy Krush" (from day 1) and exit the game, it hangs (did not have same problem with my old Galaxy Core I) and all other processes become slow. It hangs on a regular basis. There are very few apps installed on it. Considering another phone now. I am willing to sell the phone and cut my losses.
NIKESH, 26 Oct 2015the phone gets stuck all the time, hangs and hangs and hangs My suggestion you have to Reset it. then check if it hangs again
