Same for my phone, so I don't give a crap about whether my phone is vulernable or not, as long as it doesn't stop me from using certain programs that I need.﻿ I don't go to porn sites! etc..... Id rather have software i like than i don't , Oreo was to buggy for me and takes up more room
Anonymous, 06 Sep 2018Keep 7 not much Oreo offers!!! in that case he/she would miss the security patch from July 2018, not very recommended for safety reasons
MrOldschool, 04 Sep 2018Hey there. I am new owner of this model. Not yet upgraded to Oreo, I am on 7.0. Some Google re... morei'm using Oreo on my A3 2017, since May month, security patch level July 1, 2018 (currently), so far no crashes or whatsoever the phone is pretty amazing for it's price range, even before the security patch level from July 2018, didn't had even one single crash problem or other similar troubles. But i'd leave it up to you, if you wanna do upgrade from 7.0 Nougat to 8.0 Oreo, my experiences are positive from 8.0 Oreo, pretty stable OS
Hey there. I am new owner of this model. Not yet upgraded to Oreo, I am on 7.0. Some Google results says it was not stable with Oreo on May, what about now? Fixed and stable, or I should keep the 7.0?
stunning libra, 10 Aug 2018bought that phone.. really good, i must say its monster in small pack. tiny device but superb ... moreI really wish that Huawei would make a compact sub 4.7" phone with a front mountewd fingerprint sensor. I love EMUI and the Huawei fingerprint sensors are the best in the business. Lightning quick and super responsive. The only compact phone that has a better fingerprint sensor than the A3 2017 is the XZ1 Compact.
And another thing. Why on earth does Samsung give us mobiles with AMOLED screens and that ship with a horrible glaring white theme out of the box? Just include a black theme already already and stop being obnoxious. Can't say that I think Grace is any better than TouchWiz.
sutty, 18 Aug 2018does the a3 2017 have screen mirroring functonYes!
Anonymous, 10 Aug 2018We want 4.7 with Infinity and 3gig ram and 32gig HDI agree
bought that phone.. really good, i must say its monster in small pack. tiny device but superb working. But finger print sensor is not good at all. its fast but very hard some times to b successfully used.
Anonymous, 02 Aug 2018Will there be a 2018 version? I'd really like a phone with less than 5" screen.as far as i know nope, i read somewhere that the A6 2018 is considered the successor of A3 2017, as A6 2018 have the exact same processor and GPU, just 32 GB memory and 3 GB of ram, and wider resolution a bit, i might be wrong.. but that's what i know

+Great hardware and battery life.
-which is throttled by the slow, buggy, and bloatware full SamsungAndroid.
must change ROM or atleast do some tricks with ADB, to optimise it, but after u ve done the job - which should have done by the Samsung - , it suddenly becomes one of the best in its category.
So recommended only for those who can do some tricks on phones :)
