i have mine since January 2015, i write from it now, no problems so far, no case and only minor scuffs which are visible because mine is in white color. battery last me 1day easy , loudspeaker is ok, earpiece and microfone are loud and clear, camera is ok for a 2014 device, not much behind the a5 2016 my friend has.
it feels sturdy, took a few drops, no cracks only scuffs.
screen quality is ok i watch hbo go alot of time on it and never wanted more screen or better colors or soever.
buy the 1.5gb ram lte, i use mine with a 64gb microsd no problem.
it's getting android 7 so it will get even better.
can now be had for like 120Â€. totally recommend even in 28 february 2017!!!!!!
also the white one looks slickest.
How long does the battery suppose to last I find mines running down quickly
This Is getting Android 7 And J3 Pro is Not(at least not for now)
Is the selfie camera good? Is 1.5 GB RAM enough for the Samsung's OS?
I'm between A3, Idol3 - no SD card, at least where I live - and Lenovo K6 - really great phone, but the microphone audio is too low..
I won't play games or anything and don't like huge phones. I look for a good/decent selfie camera, enough storage, not too slow and not very fragile phone.
A3, a good choice?
Mine started playing up. Issues with charging device. Last night was the worst, after turning off the running apps as suggested it took even longer to charge. 8 hours. And even then it got to 90 percent and started dropping. Its not that old. I have taken care of it. Started to freeze. Thought it was a virus but I have read that you cannot get a virus?
Anyone with similar issues?
mine freeze two days ago up to now is just showing problem detected and fixing problem until today. what can i do
Had mine for 1,5 yr but aside from freezing almost daily no problem till few hours ago when the keyboard disappeared suddenly. You feel quadriplegic with only voice recording, no messaging no texting no surfing. Tried to download a keyboard none there. Go wants everything from ur phone!! Scary!! Any help???
Great phone , built quite future proof with an decent camera and an exceptional build quality.
The phone itself has a small screen , but it fits percectly into the hand , it still gets software updates and support .
It's battery is not enough for nearly a day of usage under common tasks eg. mail checking , youtube & other media consumption and web surfing.
I would 100% recomend this phone for anyone to buy that wants an 4.5" beast , but if you have some spare money , you should probably get the 2016 version or the nokia 6
I guess it's a real delicate darling. Got dropped in some water for no more than a second, I pulled it out fast enough ..yet boom! the home button now refuses to work at all..Anyway, apart from that, sad that it doesn't support 4g (At least the H model) so Jio sim doesn't work!!

I love this phone. I have it almost a year ago, and it's fast and responsive.

Horrible phone! If I had money to buy another phone I'd literally dump it in the wastebasket. It can't play YouTube video's higher then 480p, It lags like a phone from 6years ago. Omg ! Why would they even sell a shit like this. The Camara,both of them sucks! The Internal memory is too damn low and for some reason it's not even showing my SD card. A Total Dissapointment. And to think that it costed around 18k in India at the time of it's launch is really making me want to go to one of Samusung's Headcoaters and shove this phone down one of their throats. The weight and size of the phone is nice,though. Good Day.
saleen6, 29 Dec 2016Is it right that this phone can't run Youtube over 360p?No,It can run videos upto 480p and really it's not that bad,until you see another phone playing 720p or a higher resolution video.
