This is a very good phone for the price. It has a good camera and a lot of storage space. The reason I personally purchased this phone, was for a good camera. And I got what I wanted. I am very satisfied with the Samsung Galaxy A3 in black.
A320F, A320F/DS, A320FL, A320Y and A320Y/Ds are 5 versions samsung has defined for this device, which are actually four, and differ only in their 3G and 4G bands, i.e., A320Y and A320Y/DS have significantly more bands.
Only the "bad" versions A320F, A320F/DS and A320FL can be found in my country.
Regarding the fact that A320Y or DS has all the other versions 3G and 4G bands, there is no reason in defining 5 versions. Different versions are feasible only when anyone has some bands the others do not possess.
And considering that ISPs in different countries have typically no formally announced expansion projects and do not apply the same bands to whatever areas possible in their territory, it is well probable that your A320Y version receives 4G in the suburb but A320F fails, while both are capable in the center.
Only marketing and profitability criteria can explain the artificially assigning different names to actually one single product by defining slightly different internet bands.
With this marketing technique, samsung enables itself to produce unlimited devices which can be reduced to a very few ones.
Even Apple uses the same technique and releases two or three versions for each device which only differ in a few 3 or 4G bands.
It is only the end user whose money goes to softening both irresponsibility of ISPs and profitability mania of producers.

Afffff, 18 Oct 2017I wanna purchase a cell which one is better samsung galxay a3 2017 or j7 prime ?Do you mean J7 Pro? Or have I not noticed a prime version. I read the specs. I have A3 2017 that was released March. The J7 is newer and was released in June. The J7 has larger battery is fast charging also. I go and compare the prices. To decide.
Samsung A3 is a good android phone once you know how to use full functions and settings. Is quite a long learning curve because this is my second Android phone and is taken me full year and half to two years to know how everything works.
