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?
David, 15 Nov 2017i think you mean the J3 2017! ownly than upgade to andriond 7.1.xNope. J3 2016 with E3475 can get the OTA to 7.1.1/UX 8.5 (Note8)
Overall is good but, the minor problem coms with facebook app which is too slow and too much consuming the internal space. I don't have any game in my device, all that i have are whatsapp, line, instagram, facebook, messenger and all native apps, see my device only provides less than 1gb in the internal storage. And also, the multitouch input only supports for two fingers

i am still with android 5.1 when US can upgrade to 7.1. last time buyed Samsung.
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
valdrin, 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.
