julie , 27 May 2015Bought Samsung A3 and not as loud as s5 really disappointed You expect A3 to have a speaker as loud as S5? How about being realistic and not comparing flagships to mid-range? A3's speaker is not as loud but it is clear and undistorted, usually enough for any voice call.
Anonymous, 27 May 2015Totally agree with you. Better off with Grand Prime. All the spec id the same except the scree... moreThanks dude. Go with Grand Prime if you want to save a lot of money with the same chip set, GPU, CPU on Samsung A3 & A5!
I have this phone one month and i am very satisfied. Battery is ok and if I conside r all about this phone, for me this phone is excelent.

All the spec id the same except the screen size and battery. 1900mah in A3 compare to removable 2600mah battery in Grand Prime. Even the screen is the same 540X960 quarter hd resolution. You are paying MORE for the metal rim and super amoled screen and not the important stuff if you buy galaxy A3.
Same Chipset, GPU and CPU with Samsung Grand Prime. Difference :LTE, 1.5 GB RAM,16 GB internal, lighter weight , unibody, smaller size & battery with A3 but Samsung Galaxy Prime with 2600 mAH user replaceable battery! If you like size & design of A3 go with it, if you like better battery backup and bigger size with lack of money out from your bank, go with Samsung Grand Prime.
awesome design but very high pricing the greatest disadvantage of this phone
Samsung Fanatic, 26 May 2015This phone always freezes after playing COC. Once you exit in the game and return to the home ... moreYou don't need to wait for the battery to be fully drained. you can just restart your phone by holding power button and volume down together and hold till your phone restarts...
after i saw your review and the problem about this phone, can i recommend this phone?
i was interested with it
Idah, 25 May 2015Ikr, when i tried it in the store, it's not even better than a 2 mp's iphone or grand. That's ... moreIt is blurry i guess. I have the grand too which have 5mp and it is way better than this 5mp. However in 2016, 8mp front camera will be the norm because the trend this year is all 5mp front shooter. Front camera is getting better and better. Some smartphone even have led flash at the front. Bigger megapixel does not make a better camera, it is the camera aperture that make it better. Camera expert always look at the camera aperture value. The best you can get is between F1.9 or F1.8 (lower is better). The megapixel count is just a sale gimmick.
This phone always freezes after playing COC. Once you exit in the game and return to the home screen, it will freeze! It happens to me a lot. I bought my A3 from Dubai 2 weeks since its release,and get disappointed after it first happened. The only solution is for you to wait it to wait for its battery to get drained on the next day! After that it it will restart and can be use again!

That's why i'm not sure whether i should buy it or nah, since the front camera has become a big deal.

pakka battery backup

Just bought this phone and I am little disappointed. I like the 4G/LTE connectivity, the fast processor and the design is very attractive, but the screen is not sharp enough to warrant the high price tag, especially with several other phones on offer here that offer higher pixel densities for over half the price. That being said it's still a pretty darn good phone, though I wish it had been a little cheaper.
i wonder why my samsung galaxy A3 always stuck or slow while playing music and at the same time it was stuck at the home screen .past few seconds its lock when i try to unlock to home screen it takes long time.then it appeared an error.so disappointed.
Bought a few weeks ago an A3 in China (SM-A3000 dual). Flashed immediately with HK 4.4.4 firmware. Very happy about performances under 4G network. It's my first Android phone ever, bought to test if I can escape from iPhone prison for good.
Bought I second one in Italy (SM-A3000FU) since I lost the first one :( I rooted it and it works very well. Now I'll try to flash it with 5.0.2 lollipop (there is a Russian version for SM-A3000F). Hope I won't brick it...
