Anonymous, 24 May 2017Whatever version of Android your phone came with, that's probably what you're stuck with. This... moreMy j3(2016) is with lollipop 5.1 but when I buy it in December 2016 i have recived 2 security patchs - one in February and one on 25 may. But no android update.
This is one of the worst phones by Verizon it says that it is 8gb but when u get it comes with just 3.02 gb and u cant send the apps fully to your micro SD card and it doesnt even have an SD card i fucking hate this phone its worth as much as the dirt in front of home.
n, 24 May 2017When will the phone be upgraded to 6.0
Whatever version of Android your phone came with, that's probably what you're stuck with. This is a low-end phone, and Samsung often doesn't give them as much attention as their flagship devices.
Samsung claims that they are providing quarterly security patches, but sometimes they fail to deliver on that schedule. (http://security.samsungmobile.com/introsm.html)
Personally, my J3 (2016) shipped with Marshmallow, but it hasn't seen a security patch since January 1.

The phone is man made please bare that in mind. You might find that they change to a different model but that's because you paid for that model not another one. if you wanted another one then you would pay for another one. and plus if you had for a month or two or more than 15 days its not consider new its considered use so a different new phone model would not be an option on a business view it would be loss for the company. You cant always have things the way you want it atleast appreciate that they replaced it
Anonymous, 02 May 2017Why does the notification beep continue until you look at the message? Annoying Consider installing Android Messages app (official Google SMS client that comes by default in many devices). Set it as your default SMS app and disable Samsung's. Google's doesn't have such problem, plus you'll probably find it faster and the option to reply to messages without opening it is really good as well.
This is a very good phone! I've had this black J3 for a couple of months now.
This is a really fast phone with good cameras.
Nothing negative, but only the memory is small. An SD card will fix it.
I bought my phone a month ago . Last week we went on a trip everything was fine but after the battery drained off and I kept it in my pants and slept,,the screen got damaged due to unknown reasons. Cracked from inside!! Though it didn't experience any shock or high pressure . Dunno the reason. Rest all is fine with it. Next drawback is money . It cost me nearly the cost of the phone just to get the screen replaced. And same as others.. system drawback is annoying. Anyone suggest how to update to android 6.

Worst phone I've ever had,got mine and husbands in December 16,not even a week later we were not receiving tests or calls,turned phones off to rebootand all seemed well then we had to do it again and again and again every 2 weeks or so, rang customer service and they offered to swap phones like for like,I was not happy with this as I assumed it was a problem with this model and they assured me it wasn't, it must be because we have the same issues as the previous phones.been into 3 shop they don't know what the problem is,never heard of it they said.although customer service was good.I still think we should have had different models but they wouldn't do that,after 15 years of being loyal 3 customers I'm afraid when our contract is due for renewal in 18 months time 😡 we shall be going elsewhere,as loyalty doesn't seem to count
