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.

Internet provider added band 8 and is working, and today i am here because while watching youtube all screen was covered with colorful lines then gray image with small black lines(30sec) then it has shut down,after restart i saw 20gb of used data of removed app and in morning was 300mb. I think i am hacked and i am writing on my j3 to which i need to do factory reset. Sorry for my bad english

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
I still have that phone as an emergency phone (got it free years ago on carrier-subsidized deal).
Phone is damn slow, and it's hard to open only basic apps (social media, even Facebook Lite has its stutters). Apps take so long to load whereas I have another very old phone (but used to be a flagship) which breezes through it.
It was alright in its era, but anyone with that phone, must upgrade theirs ASAP. Xiaomi phones offer good specs and quality (also reliability) at a reasonable price. My iPhone runs on A12 Bionic and that's 25x faster than that J3 with Spreadtrum (CPU-Z says 4x ARM Cortex A7) lol :v

Some versions of J3 2016 came with Marshmallow and got Nougat update but they are rare .
Anyway, I guess why that happen to people is THE LACK OF RAM , THE LACK OF MEMORY, BAD BATTERY AND THE LACK OF POSSIBILITIES.
I see a lot of people have issues, did you update to the latest firmware or still using the stock one?
Really slow. When I open Gmaps or browser everything is slow motion. Exasperatedly slow.
Kole, 28 Nov 2019Good phone, it served me well. The only problem is memory, that's bad. I still have mine, and it truly sucks. It is so slow that it even lags out on the unlock screen. It runs google apps really slow and there is always lag between when you click something and it happens. In my opinion, you should save up for the galaxy a20
Mak.l, 08 Nov 2019Mine keeps turning it self off and i cant turn it back on Mine also, but it's turning On back, like the phone restart itself after long use the mobile hotspot. Sometimes the mobile hotspot is turning off by itself.
