I've got it for several days already, first of all this is not a phone to use with one hand. It's still too big for one hand also very slippery.
- great satellite reception for GPS, even indoor (compared to my old samsung)
- cameras good but not great, bright night pictures
- very good battery life
- it looks nice also it has the new usb c cable.
- too big for one hand, slips out of hand
- full of shitware that you can't remove, including MS Word and Powerpoint (dafuq?)
- ugly interface, notification and settings, lack some old setting, different from other android 6.0.1 I saw, you have themes for interface but not for others
- 2G RAM, 16G storage, 720p all too low for today's standards.
- old shitty home button that sometimes trigger in pocket.
This device doesn't have time lapse neither slow motion,his photos are not good,and why it becames with 6.0? Wrong shot by Samsung,this A3 is very poor,i do not recommend buying this device.Its very problematic.....A5 is the same do not recommend too.
The dual sim version is crippled. Not true Dual SIM.
Why does a 2017 still not have Nougat running?
Battery not removable. :-(
Samsung trying to screw consumers, but I guess karma got them with their Note 7 battery problem. If they have been charneable, then no billions wasted on product recalls.
Also S5 mini has more PPI density, why?? its older.
jackjack, 09 Feb 2017it looks like it's a problem for all phones, especially for a phone that has a small capacity ... moreThanks Ill take a look, just if spending $400 i wait for reviews in time, not rush.
Anonymous, 09 Feb 2017Yes should of bmped up battery, my cheap has 2800, what happen in a year if weakens??it looks like it's a problem for all phones, especially for a phone that has a small capacity and added again if non removable battery. just to give a bit of advice for you, if you put on the battery life, Lenovo p2 may suit for you.

AnonD-630155, 09 Feb 2017I know, but I really want this compact phone... Damn!!!Go for A5, its not that big, and better to type keyboard. I had 4.5 before drove me nuts typing google keyboard sucked on it lol. Now i have 5.2 A5 it's amazing, easier. Pay few extra dollars, this is expensive for size should be $250 not $500 Holly Smokes line the pockets of samsing. Or go S7 that is great size also trust me. I never go back to that crappy size Apps need large now.
AnonD-630155, 09 Feb 2017I know, but I really want this compact phone... Damn!!!All display will flicker, since Smasung is using around 240Hz to lower the brightness, so like under 75% flicker will be visible. Some say have fixed the flickering using apps for screen dimming. Well, if that is the flicker you are talking about, the one that shows up when the screen brightness is lower.
It could have been smaller, like 4.5 or 4.3.... It's like "for one hand but not really"...
Anonymous, 07 Feb 2017True but A5 there :(I know, but I really want this compact phone... Damn!!!
