4th year running strong. Everything working as it should be. Ive dropped it more than a few times (onto floor, concrete), i went to have a bath with it regularily (mightve gotten splashed a bit, humidity etc). And nothing wrong. I wonder if others got some shitty ones from the line or what😅😅
SAMSUNG GALAXY J3 2016
I'm struggling to transfer files videos and images from the device (8 gigs) to sd card (32 gigs) which is empty. I just don't know how and device doesn't give me this option. Another problem is, I put on a password and it's so difficult to undo it, again no option to take it off or I do not know how to do it. I have the device for 3 years now. any help out there
Slow, no storage, RAM on 2GB version is ok but the battery is not good. (on the flip side its a replaceable battery so there is that!) :D
I receive calls but my voice doesn’t go through to the caller, at a very low sound.
I am not happy with this product, it is overpriced (160.00) and does not upload much apps. I do not recommend this phone to anyone!
The price may be different in some countries, in mine it was only like 200 bucks. And the phone is really good. It's over 3 years old and still functional. I don't use clean master or similar apps because they don't really do that much, and phone can self sustain itself pretty well. I've installed and uninstalled all kinds of crap on it and it still holds itself. I wouldn't recommend installing big applications or games on it though, as it can cause it to heat a lot. Just treat it well and it will work for years.

Actually the J3 felt more premium than the Redmi 4x that time, save for the good display, but the Redmi 4x turned out to be as popular because it's cheaper and just as durable. But again it's just the poor chipset and OS which cannot be upgraded at least to Nougat.
But now it's time to replace it with a Galaxy M10s or M30s, or maybe a Redmi 8A.

Hardware and software are old. I had that phone as a backup and it wasn't smooth but can handle FB LITE, INSTAGRAM and SNAPCHAT. You can't compare it with Iphone XR. This is low-range phone and it's time passed. Other samsung phones are great(there are lot of flagships and midrange phones who works perfect). This phone has a old OS and problems with memory and RAM but i suppose it is made to be low budget phone with simple smart system.
Paul, 30 Nov 2019Really slow. When I open Gmaps or browser everything is slow motion. Exasperatedly slow.Shamsung does terribly in the low-range market.
Most of those phones (with exception of some newest releases such as the M30s ) have terrible performance and specs. I can get a Xiaomi phone with similar price with better specs.
Speaking of your phone. I have a J3 as a spare. Yes it takes forever to load certain apps, ignore Facebook and Instagram. Whatsapp takes time to load, and storage gets full quickly despite only installed that Whatsapp and one more app. Most videos and pics have been cleared and yet storage is 90% full.
Time to eliminate that rubbish. My iPhone XR (which I'm planning to swap because of carrier-subsidized deal and few cracks) run much faster than that frapp lol (joking)

CPU-Z saying it runs on 4x ARM Cortex A7 (or Spreadtrum according to GSMArena or NotebookCheck) and all cores are clocked to maximum. Have this phone as emergency and very hard to open apps despite being basic daily apps. Even Facebook Lite stutters and storage already 90% full despite only installed 2 daily apps and cleared lots of useless videos and photos.
My iPhone XR runs more than 25x faster than that potato phone :v
Joking aside it's time to upgrade, ignore Shamsung's low-end phones and try Xiaomi phones. Good specs and quality with good pricing
