This phone is an awesome deal. I got it from Saturn for 199 E when it was on sale and I can not be happier. Although after upgrading with the OTA update to Marshmellow my battery life suffers a bit, but I am still getting a whole day of heavy usage. Within wifi range most of the day I get over 5 hours of screen on time! Much better than my old Nexus 5 with same size battery I was lucky to get 2.5 hours with same type of usage. Battery usage is usually highest between screen and media server - despite trying to stop the media server with every suggestion I could find online it is still problematic but doesn't actually seem to be using as much battery as it is stating.

Decent midrange phone. Battery life, display, call quality, camera, all very good.
sudiro, 18 Sep 2016I buy this phone two week ago. Its compact phone, best in built quality. Performance is good. ... moreLooks like there's no solution for battery drain, I don't know about upgrading to MM will increase battery life cuz I'm still on lolipop. Just disabled data if u don't needed and active power saving mode. Even though those two method doesn't made a big change. Also playing heavy game with data on will cause massive battery drain. So always carry your charger bcoz the phone charging time seems pretty fast. :-)

mr. cyclone, 14 Sep 2016But my phone can move to sd card, and my phone is marsmallowI have aall the screen shots for the A3 2016 on EE and the messed up home screen after restarting the phone. If you just add apps and then move them to the SD card and do not turn off your phone, all looks well. But just try turning your phone off and back on again (restart) and you will see the problem.

Putupu, 13 Sep 2016For anyone who has been update their phone to marshmallow. Does it still fast to recharge? Im ... moreFor my phone, there is no different in charging time before and after update. It is about 1.5 - 2 hours for full charging from 0%. My phone was experienced a temporary lagging about several minutes after update. I followed many guides that said we should do factory reset after update. You could try without factory reset and tell us about your experience.
How come I still haven't got the marshmallow update? My girlfriend's got the same phone as me and she got the update today... I thought we'd be getting it at the same time since we both have the same SM-A310F model. Any explenations, guys?
