the phone sucks because i try to watch dicks on it it just shutdowns
My favourite phone... A3
I love its Screen Size
Samsung should launch another A3 2021 and boost ist RAM ROM and Camera
I loved this phone but 16GB was just far too restrictive space-wise. I wish Samsung would make another phone with the same features as this one, and the same size - this was perfect!! I have an XCover4S now but it's quite chunky compared to my A3.
Viper, 04 Feb 2021well rip A3 2017, no more updates, Samsung today buried it totally, but still 4 years with sec... moreYeah it is a shame for Samsung.
They have just made a mountain of electronic waste.
I like this phone and I have one but now I will never buy a Samsung again.
Nor will I buy a Sony again.
I would like to see a modular phone that could be upgraded as technology improves.
I mean software is easy to replace but a screen replacement is difficult.
These phone manufacturers are just distroying the planet.
Nickname, 08 Feb 2021It has got a security update recently.November 2020 i have.. but that's going to be last, no more updates, unless was region depended and i miss some, but i don't think so there's new update after November 2020 security patch
well rip A3 2017, no more updates, Samsung today buried it totally, but still 4 years with security updates is not bad at all, i'll still use it as a second unit no matter what
Anonymous, 14 Jan 2021I have it since 2017 and I will use it until the end of 2023I completely agree
Ar Ar, 22 Jan 2021Needhelp guys..my a3 2017 still in android marshmallow when i update it I cannot install now i... moreBackup your information and do a factory reset. After the reset is done, the phone will start like it is new. Than go to settings and update it

A3 2017 is the best and the most reliable and functional phone ever. I am happy with the choice I did 3 and a half years ago, when I bough it. After 6 months it will be 4 years of intensive use of the phone and I love it. I hope one day samsung will start to produce 4-5inch reliable and funcrional phones again, because the new ones (M and A series) have a lot of functions cut so to make you choose the expensive S series.
A3 2017 has only 16GB internal memory, with 9GB usable after reset, but it is still good if you are not using more than 10-20 additional apps.
Absolute trash, filled to the brim with bloatware, even if you manage to remove it, a decent bit of it will just come back automatically.
Viper, 04 Jan 2021nope the memory card isn't solution, as there's tons of Samsung bloatware apps that ... moreYes there is that.
I don't really do apps though , but I wish I could get rid of facebook app rather than just disable it.
Muttley, 04 Jan 2021Memory card is a good idea with this phone.

I have loats of files and images and never need more space.
64GB of card is plenty.
Well design phone, so beautiful and compact.
Still working as my secondary phone in 2021, but not as daily driver...
Very good phone for the price BUT...
16GB of storage (with lots of space taken up with bloatware) simply isn't enough. I kept the phone for 3 years but finally couldn't put up with constantly having to delete files, apps and clearing cache etc.
I've now got a Pixel 4a and I do miss some things about the samsung. The smaller size (and therefore ease of use with one hand), the fingerprint scanner being at the front, being able to pull down the notification panel just once to change the brightness, some Samsung galaxy exclusive apps like the Samsung music app, expandable storage, etc. But I do not miss the lack of storage space! Its a shame the this phone fell short in this one area for me because otherwise, I would still be using it to this day.
Anonymous, 18 Dec 2020I received my last security patch on 1/Sept/2020. Hope samsung will keep looking after a3 user... moreFullly agree, I've had mine since Oct 2017 and still going well in Dec 2020, despite everyday use and a number of falls and impacts. Only it has slowed a bit due to the memory but otherwise still going strong.
