StuckInFLL, 09 Jul 2018This is the worst Android device I have ever owned. It's beyond suggish. I'm hardly a power ap... morephone works great, idk what you are talking about, ive had it for 2 years and still works as new
after updating to os 7.0 customary i have been ecperiencing problems were the phone dialer has stopped working.... what can i do now?
This is the worst Android device I have ever owned. It's beyond suggish. I'm hardly a power app user. I have maybe ~10 apps I use on a regular basis.
It seems to be able to hold two apps in memory at a time. If I get an SMS while driving then Google Maps dies. I've seen the GPS simply not update until the phone is rebooted. It comes with tons of bloatware. Some of which can't even be disabled. What finally made me angry enough to post this review is that I missed a flight because the alarm (which worked okay in the past ~3 months) didn't go off. The lock screen had changed (there was no ":" character in the time anymore). I rebooted it and it worked again.
The hardware build quality is fine. It's too RAM starved though. But the software, oh, the software. I've been an Android user since the first Nexus One. I've had a few Nexus devices, an LG, and a Motorola. While they've all had some software issues in the past it's been nothing like this phone. I'm on the latest possible update but the software is still insanely buggy, slow, and basically unusable.
I've even missed a few phone calls because the phone app popped up after the call got sent to voicemail. This will be my last Samsung device ever!
Don't buy it. I only use it for a year and it is now dead. I tried many ways to revive that phone but it is completely dead.
i won't update a phone ever again!, i don't see any point in letting the os use more of my phones storage , RAM, and inevitably make it slower
This is the worst mobile phone I have ever had. Constantly having storage problems event though I have installed a SD card. I would not recommend it to anyone.
Danladi, 27 May 2018I can unlock my Samsung galaxy j3. Please help me out. Do you mean that you can't unlock your phone or?
Anonymous, 17 May 2018There'are two versions of this phone : the one with exynos and the one with spreadtrum . The ... moreWell, thanks for replying.
I saw that on internet but the other side says that there will be marshmallow update for j3 2016 gold with that processor. So what is the truth? why is it important about processors? It's really silly that one version will and won't get updates.
AnonD-759497, 17 May 2018Hello, I have a question about the phone. It has an android Lolipop i think 5.1.1 but it says ... moreThere'are two versions of this phone : the one with exynos and the one with spreadtrum . The second one didn't get updated drivers beacuse spreadtrum provided drivers just for the 5.1.1 android. An forced update will turn the device into a brick. So in conclusion we won't get an 6.0.1 update nor nougat update.
Hello, I have a question about the phone. It has an android Lolipop i think 5.1.1 but it says that Marshmallow and Nougat are realased but It didn't find any update. It is gold version when will be update ready for J3 2016?
A low-end modern phone with an AMOLED display and Android 7.1 Nougat at a high price. This phone could be easily blown by other competitors like Xiaomi Mi A1 or Moto G for its price range.
It has a very satisfactory AMOLED screen at somehow respectable resolution and size. The colors are saturated and pops which makes me a fan of AMOLED screens. It gets bright enough for outdoors too.
The camera department is lacking though. Sporting an 8 megapixels rear camera, this is somehow acceptable for most people. Taking pictures are quick enough some people. It has good color reproduction. But it loses details due to the software processing side. Low light performance is a flop, of course. And it has no full HD video recording.
The phone is built nice though. Although it looks cheap and screams low-end, I like the sturdiness of the phone's side railings and the back cover's snap. The buttons are clicky enough but are a bit recessed and it wobbles. Although it is made of plastic, it doesn't feel like it is due to its weight.
The phone is powered by a 2600mAh battery and it lasts for about 3+ hours of screen-on time at 50%+ level with brightness turned up 1/8. It can last a whole day without charging if used lightly and when is always connected to a Wi-Fi.
It runs Android 6.0.1 out of the box, but is upgradeable to 7.1 Nougat. On top of that, it runs Samsung's own TouchWiz UI and have lots of THEIR apps in it. I am more of a stock Android person and I get used to using Google apps, so I think these are bloatware for me.
Anonymous, 13 Jun 2017How do u check d 6.01 marshmallow stuff??Look for settings/click updates/the update could tell you which Android Version which for me is just now the Nougat 7.1. But there is another way -- Settings/About Phone/Android version. There it will tell you its installed version . Although mine at this still gives 6.0.1, it is still updating the phone info, since, my update info stated that I do actually have the 7.1 Nougat Android Operating System (OS). It currently is at 6.0.1, so I believe it has the Exynos hardware (bought it in North America) in 2017. I just recently turned it on and I received 2 updates for security patches. Unless you just want basic talk & text & wifi, I frankly would not recommend it. Now that it has been updated with stated fixes to New battery management, Easier Multitaasking , & Preview photo effects & filters. They just came, so I do not know how all this will spell out in the long run.
As for pix, definitely needs daylight unless the 7.01 Nougat update fixed that. I paid it off and am using another phone now. It will be an interesting phone for experiments. I read that more memory space can be gained by going to factory re-set, and then disabling all the bloat ware, minus what you might like. I am inclined to do that with this experiment phone.
Anonymous, 13 Jun 2017How do u check d 6.01 marshmallow stuff??Look under about phone, and then Android version -- That is how I found it on my Note 8. \
As for my J3 (2016 year)_ I belive it would be the same way. It currently is at 6.0.1, so I believe it has the Exynos hardware (bought it in North America) in 2017. I just recently turned it on and I received 2updates for security patches. Unless you just want basic talk & text & wifi, I frankly would not recommend it.
