It looks like Samsung is having a hard time with their first metal-clad mid-range smartphones. Last week, we reported that Samsung delayed the launch of the Galaxy A3 and the Galaxy A5 due to low production yields while manufacturing metal casings for them. Now, Hi-Tech.Mail.ru has learnt from their review, that these metal devices are facing cellular signal strength issues. When compared to the Galaxy S5, which was receiving a fairly strong cellular signal at -82 dBm, the Galaxy A3 and the Galaxy A5 received relatively weaker signal strength at -92 dBm ad -93 dBm respectively. If the signal drops by another 10 dBm, the devices would face constantly dropping data connection. The reviewer tested this with the same SIM card in all three devices, and at the same location.
This phone has really become one of my favourites.. just loved its sleek design and the gorilla screen touch. It feels almost weightless while holding it and yess the camera result is appereciateable!!

knreddy, 08 Mar 2015Samsung A3 has excellent Rear & Front cameras , really it produces better photos in very ... moreCORRECTION TO EARLIER POST
when I have checked S5 (G901Y ) , Alpha (G850Y), A3 (A300H) with USB Audio Player Pro Trial routing audio through android it says DAC sampling as 44.1 KHz, But When A3 (A300H) , Moto G1, Lenovo 369i are checked with Neutron , It says DAC sampling as 48 , 44.1, 44.1 respectively. So Neutron Music Player is capable to identify Audio Hardware. Hence Samsung A3 (with native support to 48 KHz) resamples all other frequencies (e.g majority of MP3, Audio CD ) to 48 KHz so it may not fit for audiophile. I can safely say the audio quality of A3 is inferior to Nokia E52 (subjective opinion).
If gsmarena test DAC's native sampling frequency, as a part of their review , it will be great help
