This is how this phone (A3 2016) for playing games:
1. Clash of Clans (an online game with 2D graphic). it runs perfectly without lag or problem.
2. Pokemon GO (a simple 3D game with GPS positioning). GPS position perfect, no lag in game play, decreasing frame rate when loading gym.
3. Dungeon Hunter 4, (3D RPG). It runs perfectly.
4. Dungeon Hunter 5, (an online & decent 3D RPG game), runs perfectly in game play, decreasing frame rate (about 20 fps, acceptable) when starting animation.
Please note that my phone does not have any noise/sound from button issue. It is a perfect compact phone with corning gorilla glass 4 and a strong aluminium body. If you have any problem, you should go to the service center. Just make sure you buy the original one.
And the speaker location is in the phone's bottom edge, just to the right of the Micro-USB charging port, not in the back of the body. So it never in the way of my hand when holding.

i want to buy this phone but it price is too high for the specs because of the build. I wish that they make a j7 2015 chipset gpu exynos and 2gb ram but metal side with corning gorilla glass 4 and remove the back glass of the phone to make the price lower.
AnonD-364021, 27 Aug 2016Help, just bought this phone everything is good but i have a problem, my sim card is detected ... moreDid the store sell you a 'carrier locked' phone?
Back to the store, check which carrier SIM the store used for testing and ask them to test with your SIM!!
I hope Galaxy A3 2017 be like: 2GB RAM, fingerprint censor, still 4.7in screen display, 7.0 Nougat. Samsung pls make this happen.
Help, just bought this phone everything is good but i have a problem, my sim card is detected but i can't make a call and conect to the internet, I test it in store and it works, then I bought new sim card and I have these problem. Please help me guys.
Forgot to add. it has very good battery life. I got 8 hours of screen time. Also camera is mediocre. photos become soft unless you manually focus. HDR photos turn out best. Good for everyday use. don't expect good camera from a phone even s7 and z5 and others. speaker tiny gets in the way of your hand when holding sometimes. For the moment this is my review ))
Anonymous, 26 Aug 2016please tell me immediately ,which one is better than between samsung a3 and htc desire eye ,p... moreI bought it recently. I cant stress enough that i was surprised by how good this phone is. But i came from a very old 2011 android phone. So you can consider that as well. by the way it looks way better that other options. just have some sound when shaking phone. but i dont care probably normal. I hope contributed enough. Samsung deserved this one. Although i dislike the brand but they improved.
please tell me immediately ,which one is better than between samsung a3 and htc desire eye ,please myy friendss
You can not use 2 sim cards and microSD, because the microSD slot can be used for the Sim 2. So you can use 2 sim cards and no microSD card, or 1 Sim and 1 SD
sharp, 22 Aug 2016What sd card can I use 36g 64g? And dose it have to be sd or can it be sdhc or sdxc. Cheers fo... moreIt supports microSD, up to 256 GB in GSM arena specification page, but official Samsung manual said up to 128GB. So, better playing safe with max 128 GB.
MicroSD can be SDHC (32GB or less) or SDXC (more than 32GB). SD (not SDHC/SDXC) should work but not recommended because it uses older tech and usually slower than SDHC/SDXC.
You should choose SDHC/SDXC from well known brands. Sandisk (ultra) & Samsung card confirmed working.
Anonymous, 26 Aug 2016Can anyone tell me .. can we use two sim and memory card all three together? No, specification page clearly said: Card slot: microSD, up to 256 GB (uses SIM 2 slot).
Can anyone tell me .. can we use two sim and memory card all three together?
AnonD-364021, 26 Aug 2016Read the site that you gave, is it true available internal memory only 9.3gb out of 16 gb? Im ... moreYes, Lollipop takes approx 5.5Gb for its system.
This phone has great performance & compact, fits in my hand. Calling, text, instant messaging (whatsapp, bbm), and camera, are good and smooth. GPS position is very fast and accurate. Images in screen are really beautiful, sharp text.
Simple games like Clash of Clan runs smooth and no lag. Pokemon Go runs well, no lag when throwing Pokemon and finding in the wild. I just experienced a frame rate decreasing when opening a gym, but it does not affect the game play. Because it only has 1.5Gb RAM, it cannot run multiple instances of apps or games. If you minimize a game, and run another game, the first game must reload (don't forget to save).
The only drawback is its non-removable battery and small capacity. I always need to charge it full for one day usage. But this is just like other average phones (except the max model that has battery >5000Mah).
