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).

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).

Meri666, 23 Aug 2016Hi, can someone please tell me about the camera? At day and night? Is it the same with A5 (6)?Camera is good, just like J5/J7 2016. No problem for taking photo day or night. A5 2016 is better for taking photo/video with shaky hand or moving because it has OIS.
For camera, battery, performance, Antutu, and other things, comparable with A5 2016, see here:
When I tried to connect my A3 (2016) via Bluetooth to my car (Renault Megane Dynamic) it initially appeared to pose no problem. Once the radio was turned off however not only was the Bluetooth not connected but the radio/CD was totally dead. I checked the fuses (no problem there) and the only way to re-connect the radio was to disconnect and re-connect the battery. This happened several times. A post on the internet suggested that I go to the Android Market, download "Bluetooth File Transfer" a free app, and re-try. This made no difference. My old Samsung S3 mini never gave any trouble when connected via Bluetooth. Looks like I'll have to continue using it when I'm driving the car if I want to use Bluetooth.
[deleted post]I bought it from singapore
i noticed marshmellow 6.0.1 taking alot of memory and because im a j5 -6 user but still ok since this phone having 2gb ram
if im using A3 , i wud prefer to stay to lolipop since its having 1.5gb ram only, just a advice.
Happy with my A3 2016 with 6.0.1 battery lasts 3 days. camera is ok. very fast and smooth. sometimes the back button acts as the 'more' or 'options' button in the upper right. and every time i turn off and on, i have to set my default messaging app.
Please do a proper review of this phone....
I can't install 6.0.1 os of some one have this prablom tell me
