This phone is great if you want a small phone BUT my version has an issue with the touch screen not picking up touches properly, it makes typing VERY frustrating. I have read other people have the problem too. I don't know if it's the problem with the phone itself or just a certain shipment was faulty.
I've tried everything to fix it so I'm going to sell this phone. The issue comes and goes so make sure you you get to test it a bit before you buy the phone. If the issue doesn't happen try rebooting and type in different apps. For me it always happens in snapchat. Don't buy it on ebay otherwise you won't be able to return it easily.
I cannot get my gear 2 Samsung watch to work with my new phone please help
Hero, 23 Jul 2016what do you mean by AR ?it's mean you can't catch the pokemon in AR (Augmented Reality) using camera to view pokemon in real view world background, but still can play pokemon and catch pokemon in a like animation background. To play pokemon in AR mode you need smartphone with gyro sensor.
Just buy and using it a couple a day, and this is my personal opinion: compact, good material, good design, a little lag when opening app and multitasking, battery fair, camera ability not good enough, USB OTG support, Over price (other competitor like huawei have more fair price).
What I don't like about this phone the most is the camera ability, in mode pro you can manual control iso (100,200,400, 800) but can't manual control focus and Shutter Speed, so when you put iso 100 your photo will become dark =.=. Oh and install other camera app like Manual Camera, ProShot not help either. With lower price or same range price I think Huawei P8lite, Huawei GR3, and Huawei GR5 (=honor 5x) are better than this SG A3 (6).
I come from having an iPhone 5s but no longer wanted something so expensive . With the 3A I have 2 months to 15 days it was deemed much I discovered it was the Facebook app uninstalled and install the lite version and it worked much better so long locks of play music also will uninstall .
Why , there are many problems with this smartphone?
Hey guys am thinking about buying this phone can anyone tell me is the memory management good in the marshmallow update + did the battery life improve or not

dragoka1, 20 Jul 2016Is this phone compatible with pokemon go?I can confirm that PKMN GO works smooth as butter for me. No AR tho.
Fantastic phone, crystal clear screen, immaculate sound, grand camera quality! I was lucky enough to find a pink gold variant since they sell like hot-cakes over here. The salesman told me he got 5 pcs in the morning I bought mine and already sold 3 by the time I bought it, good thing too, because the new shipment arrives in 1-2 months again :D
A huge upgrade to my never updated chinaphone I had since 2014. Kudos Samsung!
CyclingTog, 20 Jul 2016Can anyone who has this phone please tell me what the camera is like on the A3 (2016)?I love this phone camera. 5 megapixels Selfie camera is very cool, wide selfie makes you feel that you have a gopro camera. 13 megapixels rear camera is amazing too
I think that the A3 2016 is a good phone not just because of the specifications but because it feels like you are holding as S6 in your hand. The materials used to make the A3 2016 are similar/the same to Samsung's main S series, it is not as bad as the A3's economy brother the J3's materials. Although both are good phones the A3 2016 is considerably better for the needs of any person without having to pay the price tag of the S6 or S7.
