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
mostly common features in call logs & others are not available. where the cheap companies are do available these. There is not any fun apps by default. Only Slim/smart and good looking not enough.
I couldn't find call blocking facility to unwanted incoming callers or numbers, please help
Superb fone..the A3 is an elegant fone.with all the features.if I looking to get a new fone...get this one
Samsung A3 has excellent Rear & Front cameras , really it produces better photos in very low light if night mode is selected. Call quality is good, but not very loud (may not be effective in very high noise areas or for some hearing loss people). It is thin, it is metal, curved back (comfortable than holding Iphone 4/5) No Notification LED ( as it has AmoLED screen, app like NoLED or iLED can be used). External speaker is week, head phone audio is excellent but volume is low.
In fact my first phone dead within 16 Hrs of purchase, after 3 times shutdowns on its own. But it was replaced with sealed phone by dealer.This one is working OK.
Screen resolution is low, but surprisingly, i could not find any difference while reading any number of documents. But this low resolution is resulting in good battery life. With 4.5" screen, 130mm length phone it is very handy. Native support for of 44.1 Khz Audio (model purchased is A300H dual sim),2nd sim space can be as for expandable memory.Battery non removable, No Lag, Memory just sufficient (2GB used to be better). Really Beautiful, Smasung Alpha is better in every aspect (in similar physical size) but without expandable memory & FM Radio.
Bundled earphone is just OK, but if you want full frequency range & audiophile quality you have to buy a suitable from sennheeiser etc.
It has ecompass which is useful in maps & at the start of the journey with Navigation(once direction is achieved through moving the vehicle, navigation map will be rotated in auto, no e compass required?)
shame on samsung
no gyro and only 8m camera,had 4 year ago s2.
shame shame very disappointing
I don't know if it is only in Asia but this Samsung Galaxy A3 does not have a card slot for a micro sd card. All official Samsung branches here in Manila can confirm that. So I am wondering if the specification listed above is from other countries...? I definitely would love a smartphone that has an external micro sd card for extra storage though.
where do i buy the sim card(nano sim) for this phone because apparently the micro sim it came with is too big for this phone.
