If they had added Galaxy Lab into this phone features I would off bought today. As Galaxy Lab was not added in the setting's I got put off by the price. Everything else about the looks and waterproofing on this phone was amazing. Also I noticed the detail off the screen pixels were not as good as the other Samsung handsets. I could notice the dots was not quite as good Amoled desplay quality as is bigger brother £379. The size and looks is like Apples 5S if not better because off the waterproofing, but I would also try to add into a phone such small device wireless charging to impress when I go into coffee shops and can just lay down my phone on the wireless charging doc whilst everyone else has got to plug something to use wireless charging. USB-C I like that and the new position off the speaker is new, but I'd also try to add stereo. I'm glad with the camera quality front and back and noticed no eyesite recognition and no heart rate monitor.
I pre ordered it last week at Mobiel.nl. Expecting next week in The Netherlands. Looking forward to it. Nice specs.
I have the 2016 model and want to get the 2017 one bud i hear it will have a crazy price tag on it in south africa
Anonymous, 23 Jan 2017which phone is bater to buy in $250 range??There's many choices but these are the best. First choice would be the Xiaomi Redmi note 4 since it has such nice specs for the price. Runner up would be the Blu life one x2. It has better advantage in camera at 16mp over 13mp but really, it's ram that's really good. You get 4gb ram for just $200! This is just my opinion, but if you have any other choices that you been looking at, feel free to purchase those instead
I want to buy this phone in Singapore...
Official website has not showed A3 in Singapore.
I can't to wait!
Thanks, but no thanks.
I'm keeping my Alpha. Still the best compact phone, three years after purchase. Thanks, Samsung! ;-)

Why does n't this phone have Android Nougat?
Do we have to wait for the 2018 version of this phone?
Why cripple the dual sim version of this phone?
"microSD, up to 256 GB (uses SIM 2 slot) - dual SIM"
Samsung did this in the 2016 edition, so why do this on the 2017 edition?
When I go on holiday, I need a local SIM. But I am not going to remove my MicroSD card, which contains all my music.
does this phone have optical image stabilization?? i love small phone with great camera
If the pricing be very competitive from Nokia, think I will switch to A3 for the sick of IP68. It gave me no worries when we are out with children in pools.
I buy today in Russia, very nice like s7 cuz, i like it better than girlfriend.

The SE is a hundred million times better than... moreI think,you misinterpret me, I'm looking for a secondary phone, I'm keeping my SE, there are times that I'm riding a motorcycle, or going to beach or some island hopping, or climbing a mountain, and I need to have a waterproof phone so that I will not be worrying when the rains come :)
Dummy_001, 18 Jan 2017Me thinking of why I would buy this and why not: Pros - Smaller is better(Easier to use,IMO)... moreyou are on-point right, talk about over-pricing with midrange specs, and these fanboys keeps complaining on Nokia's new pricing for their Nokia 6, psh, typical fanboys
