GNIGNI, 08 Aug 2016Hi Everyone I own the A3 Dual sim , but notice there is a rattling noise when I shake the p... moreThe rattling noise is probably coming from the side buttons, its just the way the buttons are placed, not much if a big concern

My phone keeps freezing and turning itself off. What could be the cause?
I own the A3 Dual sim , but notice there is a rattling noise when I shake the phone.
Sounds like some spring or something ,my guess its from the camera because it sounds its coming around from it.
Can anyone confirm that is happening to their phone as well ?

Anonymous, 05 Aug 2016Which is better A3(2016) or J5(2016)??The samsung galaxy a3 is better than the samsung galaxy j5
Samsung your phones have a serious design flaw. As your president of Mobile Dongjin Koh said in his interview, it is a generous and good listener person to the other people. So listen what I have to say to you that will help to boost your sales and profits for you and for us the consumers. It’s a win, win situation. your major drawback it is the lack of support of a dedicated Sd Card in your dual Sims smart phones, not to use the second sim slot, but with the second sim slot available for the sim and the SD card slot to be dedicated only to sd card ( 2 Sims with SD card simultaneously).
Samsung Galaxy A3 (2016) – Good phone but the lack of dedicated SD Card slot 2 Sims and the SD Card Simultaneously working together in the phone it is a major drawback in its sales. IF you fix this design flaw your sales will be rise dramatically. Also 1080p Display and at least 3 GB Ram the entire major Chinese vendors offer this choice in their products why don’t you do the same?

nima, 04 Aug 2016why there is no review for this amazing phone??????????why?????????????The best an most realistic reviews you find by reading the comments in this forum. They are mostly based on daily users experiences, both up's and downs. I bought mine abot 2 months ago as temporary replacement for a SONY X3 Compact (was at the end changed on warranty), and have let my A3 go to my children as a 'play' phone' mainly used on the house wi-fi. Games , u-tube whatever seems to work, so far no complaints. In some ways I liked it even better than my Z3, however I'll let that one live on until it dies next time. Hopefully a bit left in the A3. It is an ok phone for daily use, works without problems. My reason for buying it was simple: the Nano SIM made it easy to switch between other phones in the family if any of those breaks down!
Glad to know there are more people susuffering from the keyboard issue.
I've done a lot of research and found out it's not a faulty multitouch (it's not hardware), but a keyboard lag... I've read there are hundreds of users having the same problem with different phone brands with one thing in common: Lollipop 5.1.1...
So, to (partially) solve the keyboard lag, clean caché of the app you're using (whatsapp, Telegram, ICQ, etc) or even better, disable swipe options and predictions... That will help the phone a lot regarding RAM use.
Let's hope all versions of this phone get marshmallow and a proper solution for the lag.
Having said that, phone is great. I come from a GS3 Neo and my A3 is worth the money.
