Had this j3 for 4 months all good i liked the phone a lot then suddenly half the screen goes blank and the rest is blurred it looks like the inner screen is got a crack in it but the otter screen is fine it hasnt been dropped its just stopped working properly,very disapointed dont know if samsung will sort it out for me, but its got a 1 years garrenty on it.
Myself, 02 Nov 2017It's not fair. It's like chipset rasism because the exynos variant in usa got 7.1.1 update but... moreMT is no better. The best is either Qualcomm or Samsung Exynos. Exynos is better because Samsung makes the drivers themselves. They can't deny or charge themselves for them right? While Qualcomm has denied providing Nougat drivers for the SD800/801.
My J320F received an update today , around 116-126 MB, it's an security patch and it says better memory managment and notification about unstable apps. Anybody received it?
There's a J320Y model that is not included in the article and it features a 1.2GHZ Qualcomm Snapdragon 410. I have a unit that is based in the Philippines.
I upgrade new firmware and nothing new nothing special.....j3 2016fn write on mobile specification android 6.01 upgrade to 7.1.1 but we cant update
It's not fair. It's like chipset rasism because the exynos variant in usa got 7.1.1 update but the j320f (the European version ) has Spreadtrum... I think spreadtrum is blameable here because they don't support newer android versions.... Wished that project treble be made possible on almost every phone. Next time i'm gonna buy a phone with cpu from mediatek or quallcom , both support all new android versions. I'm dissapointed. And why they are making so many variants on all phones?
Is nice but the voice always go of when you are talking and even when listening to the radio the sound also go off
AnonD-410378, 25 Oct 2017i still have android 5.1.1 on my j3 wtf If your device shipped with 5.1.1, then most likely will never receive any major OS upgrades. That's because it has a Spreadtrum CPU, and it seems likely that Spreadtrum has only provided Samsung with drivers compatible with Lollipop.
If your device shipped with 6.0, then it most likely has an Exynos CPU. Samsung has complete control of the device drivers for those CPUs because they were designed in-house. Those devices are currently receiving an upgrade to 7.x.
Ed, 06 Oct 2017Second Samsung product. Will never recommend this company products ---too much trouble using a... moreI have same problem with my J3, can't make or receive a call, have to remove battery for it to work again. Took it to Samsung shop and computer found no faults, so stuck with it.
batata, 22 Oct 2017you have to upgrade it via odin If you have a Galaxy J3 2016 based on a Spreadtrum chipset, do NOT attempt to force an upgrade to any build that was released for the Exynos based variant. At best, it won't work; at worst, it may permanently brick your device.
AnonD-636704, 18 Oct 2017I have a J320F device which I still have android 5.1.1 ,But why does this website say Android ... moreAlready answered. There were at least two hardware variants of this device.
One was released in North America with an Exynos CPU, 2GB of RAM and 16GB of storage. It shipped originally with Marshmallow, and upgrades to Nougat for this device are rolling out right now.
The other was released elsewhere in the world with a Spreadtrum CPU, 1GB of RAM and 8GB of storage. It shipped originally with Lollipop, and has never received any upgrades to either Marshmallow or Nougat. I can't say for certain, but it seems very unlikely at this point that it ever will.
I have a J320F device which I still have android 5.1.1 ,But why does this website say Android 5.1.1 (Lollipop) or Android 6.0 (Marshmallow), upgradable to 7.1.1 (Nougat). After I saw this I was very happy that this phone atlast got a new android version But No there is no update.Please make this error GSMARENA
Will I ever get 7.1.1 to my J320F?
many big gaqy pho9ne, lots goodneess
sucky screen if do the step on it
Miki, 16 Oct 2017im have j3 320fn if we stuck in version 5.1.1 why in specifications its this message
Andro... moreLook, there are two major variants of the J3. The best one is the one with a Exynos 3475. This one came with 6.0.1 out of the box. And this one just got Nougat. This model is only for North America.
The second one is your version that came with 5.1.1. This one didn't get updated drivers because of Spreadtrum so it can't get any update. This model is for the rest of the world.
Hence the "or". If you had 6.0.1, then you can upgrade.
