Gyro sensor missing. U can say good bye to any samsung phone expect their flagships.
Some of us do like small factor phones, but why still running Android 6?. Android 7 has split screen. Battery not removable.
I guess will wait for the J series.
Samsung has just shown the whole world that they do not want people to use VR only if it's their gear VR. Samsung: let's make people waste extra money on a flagship that they might not want everything about it and remove this sensor on all the other phones so we can make extra money and they will just keep coming to us!!! They want to waste our money guys on phones that we probably won't need unless we're really power hungry, but I'm serious, Samsung wants you to waste your money if you want a VR headset from them
No gyroscope!!! Why does Samsung hate this sensor so much. I might have a theory to why they never add gyroscope on their other phones besides flagships but I'm not for sure on this
I still don't get why they refuse to make a small (4.7") with more than 2/16 memory capacity.
It still seems impossible to get 3/32 in a small form factor at a decent price this year. Or at least not from Samsung...
Ann, 03 Jan 2017Very disappointed. overpriced for only 2350 mAh, no gyro????? i dont like USB type C. But than... moreDon't forget that A3 has only 4,7 inch of display. Not 5 or more. And as far as I know, Samsung phones has good battery management.
I made the right decision going for the x compact instead of waiting for this I think.
I don't like how it's gotten larger than last years a3

X Compact > Z5 Compact > Rest Z compact > galaxy A3 series & galaxy alpha
LeeHarvey, 03 Jan 20172016 version has a glass back cover, no good. but the design is good too. I pick A3 2017.I still prefer the A3(2016)design,very classic. The coming models giving me an elementary feels, sadness.

But materials, wear resistance and assemble quality are not so comparably good (comparing to discussed A3 even 1st generation). Believe me, I had whole line of Sony compacts starting from Z1, they lost waterproof and became scratched very fast even in protective cases. And speaking about new Samsung A3 - I wouldn't say it's overpriced, comparing official prices of new A3 (2017) and prices of new Z5 compact. Though you're right - if we compare new A3 (2017) price and price of currently not the last Sony (e.g. Z5 compact, todays prices) - it won't be so good for A3. Unfortunately Sony lost the compact waterproof phones market, though it was almost one of the pioneers of it. Hope A3 will be successful - otherwise I even don't know what to do, I don't want to buy iPhones ;-)
Anonymous, 03 Jan 2017which do you like the last year a3 design or this?Frankly last year's design was better. but here we see minimalism. which here looks better. imo I'd prefer to have the led flash below the camera. to give it a more symmetrical design. (similarly to the ancient Galaxy S4) then It'll be DEFINITELY a device I'll buy.
I have a3 the first version this phone saize is very good and i want to change my phone with a3 2017 because it have good price and water proof and have finger print
I Think Xperia Z5 compact is still the best compact phone.
Say no tho this overpriced phone and iphone 7 (overpriced too).
Very disappointed. overpriced for only 2350 mAh, no gyro????? i dont like USB type C. But thanks for IP68, 2 GB RAM and 8 MP front camera.
OVERPRICED PHONE! still in the marshmallow, no ois, no fast battery charging, 2350mah battery only, 16gb storage, 2 gb ram deym and I dont like the design too I'll gonna go for last year a3 design due to the back phone design! So just add a little money you can buy high specs from other brand but i trust samsung so just go to A5 (2017) and add Â€100! If you like small phone with great design and high specs just go to Apple or Sony, samsung is not for you! sorry for my bad english
