I got this as a work phone. I have a LOT of trouble with the connection cutting out. I looked this up and it seems like a common issue. Like it's a cheap phone, and it's grand otherwise, but since it regularly loses connection it doesn't function well as an actual phone.
I have done a lot of hard resets which fix the issue for a while. The phone is encrypted and has a micro SD card to expand the storage (32GB). It's dissapointing
I'm trying to get my phone a new screen replacement and I don't know where to look.
sushi, 21 Aug 2016I just want to know if the camera of J3 2016 is good?Very good
Samsung camera phone is getting worse now , unlike earlier models such as galaxy ace plus I have ever used.
I have no idea why this phone stated that it has a micro sim, Mine came installed with a nano sim

If it contains mark "duos" its dual sim else not. Second u may see Sim Card Option in settings. If its duos, even then remember its Sim-1 slot and Sd card are one unit. Sim 1 is inserted beneath memory card. Use appropriate sim size. Sim-2 is easy to insert though
The quality of the camera is shit...It's funny how samsung J2's camera quality doesnt make you look pale,dying & sad
Hey,, i just bought a Samsung j3 6, but suddenly all my contacts are dissapeared. even if i add those contacts again after two,three hours contacts get deleted. any idea to fix this ?
I bought this Samsung galaxy j3 2016 a week ago , and I like it , the camera is exactly like the j5's camera, the battery is the best and the 5" screen is a bonus to it..
this phone is perfect and better than J5
Attention distinguish J3 with J3 6 / J3 2016 as they are quite different.
J3 2016 is delivered with Lollipop, but I'm offered the option to upgrae to Marshmallow.
I didn't like the Lollipop skin / Samsung overlay on it. Boy what is it ugly.
I prefer the Kitkat/launcher, so much I would even do a downgrade to it if it were possible..... Satisfied with its 4G, as I travel to work by train and allows me to read whatever I feel to. High ram usage out of the box though, but the J3 2016 already has 1.5GB ram to that helps. For those who can afford it, never buy a phone with less then 1.5GB ram or even go up to 2GB. Not bad for its price. I wanted to buy the Samsung A3 2016 but it was more expensive and there were delivery problems with its dualsim/duos editon, so decided for the J3. The J3 with its 5 inch is a but dumb to me, the 4,7 of the A3 would have been ideal. I'm not a big fan of very flat phones, it feels like a pancake... so I'd still go for the dimensions of the S4 or S5 instead.
Personal feel score 5/10
Functional score 9/10
Samsung J-3 is good addition in J series family with certain good and poor characteristics like company has tried to improve the camera but from camera's result is not upto the mark. Display is reasonable (5") but in white or gold color company put black front upper portion of screen which washes away of the beauty of gold colour.
Samsung J-3 is good addition to the family of J series with few good qualities like improvement in camera, putting G4 LTE and of course display. Few short comings are OS is still lollipop which cannot be upgraded, in white or colour they put black front on the top which washes away its beauty as whole. Front camera's result is also not upto the mark.
