AnonD-716421, 17 Nov 2017It could be upgraded from Lollipop to above? I have read in XDA that it still couldn't. I need... moreYou can flash Lineage or almost any other rom from XDA. They support sd card as internal but you should only do it if you have a fast sd card class 10 and up
Anonymous, 05 Sep 2017Battery drains fast. After few months, phone has become quite slow. Factory reset doesn't help... moreI agree, battery is constantly down, an i have checked, an re checked, as well as removed anything that i thought maybe draining the battery.
The spreadtrum chipset is really good for this phone, especially the cpu ,1.5ghz. The only thing that makes this phone lag sometimes is the gpu , that is a very old one, the Mali-400. If it had MaliT720 it was better. Also if you root it it will not lag anymore because you can remote bloatware. Also lollipop does not eat much storage and ram as newer versions and battery drain is low.
I have this phone for more than a year already. Didnt experience any problems until recently when it strts to lag badly. Sucks it doesnt have any software upgrade, forever stuck with lollipop. I have no choice but to upgrade to a new phone. Phones these days dont last that long especially with how fast the evolution of technology is.

Anonymous, 24 Nov 2017Dear All, I am now using J3 with 1.5G Ram, is it possible to install dual whatsapp into it?You 1st download parelel space software
My phone has Android 5.1.1, could someone tells me how to upgrade at least to Android 6.0? I couldn't root it successfully with Kingroot so to link/move apps on externals SD with Apps2SD or Force2SD. I need Android 6.0 as I read that it supports external SD to be set as primarily install location and the problems with decreasing space of internal SD to be solved. Now I have 6 GB free on external but can't install more apps because I have 500 MB free on internal.

Globe_Agent, 20 Nov 2017May I know if Samsung Galaxy J3 is duos or not?Depends on the actual model, different versions can be distributed over the countries. So the answer is YES, but make sure and double check when you buy, my suggestion is put 'dual' when you search, and after, again, double check the description of the model on the target list

I didn't succeed to root it from Kingroot Android version. I don't wanna install PC version (Virus Total gave me trojan alert when I scanned the .exe) so I'll leave it unrooted.-_-
Sooo I rooted it and debloated it , with the big risk of bricking. My free memory, Battery life and ram usage improved drastically. Now I'm gonna try to port the 7.1.1 rom from the exynos version. It's really hard but possible i believe. For unroot go in SuperSU and select unroot and restore stock boot image but not in recovery. After that you can close oem unlock anytime because frp lock is tricked by stock boot image
It could be upgraded from Lollipop to above? I have read in XDA that it still couldn't. I need at least Marshmallow to set my external card as a primary card for installing apps. How could I upgrade from Lollipop? I'm not sure what OTA is, only know this means over the air, but if this means Wi-fi or else?
