Can you comment on the feature / performance improvements after your Marshmallow software update? J3 2016 user here from Manila.
Sriram, 12 Jul 2016How is j3 experience & which colour is bestI bought gold cuz white wasnt right no more......so I was told by my "in style" daughter. I bought a black TPU ( rubbery case that is strong AND blicks 90% of gold. Then I added a gorrilla glass transparent protector of the thicker glass that comes on the phone. You cant see it, it does not interfere with button operation and gives me peace of mind that if I drop it on a rock, all I have to do is peel it off. I bought 3 from China because that's the only place you can get them, so I would just put another one on. no drama!
The reason I bought this phone is because I stepped on my Samsung Galaxy 3. You have to understand I have three teenage girls and my wife and I are separated, so I end up buying them more cutting-edge phones and then just trying to be careful with my own. I mean I still had 2 gigs of RAM and 16 gigs onboard plus a 16 gig micro SD card I added. I am 45 so I added a lot of 80's 90's and 2000's heavy metal rap whatever.
Now back to the phone. Speed-wise it blows away my S3, the reason it blows it away is because it has a quad-core Qualcomm processor with 16 gigs on board + 1.5 gigs of RAM. And the extra processor cores allows me to open all kinds of apps with no noticeable slow down or lockups like I used to get with my S3. Now I got a TPU back cover and I got a gorilla glass cover which is completely see-through for the front because I hate giant otter box type cases. It makes them look like I don't know communicators from Star Trek from 1966. The camera is incredible compared to my old phone, and I bought it for $149 brand new. The TPU cover was $8 on eBay and the front Gorilla Glass I bought 3 of them from China and it took about 3 weeks to get them but it was worth it. In other words it's hard to find accessories for this phone but now I have all the accessories I need and I really enjoy the phone the 5.1 inch screen is a nice touch too. I used to have a 4.8 it's worth every penny of $149 and that was done at best B
filippoudimi, 14 Jul 2016Indeed. The performance is suprisingly good. I use it with a third party launcher to avoid the... moreWhat 3rd party launcher did you use? Not that mine is slow.....and it has a really long lasting battery, but mo more speed is always good. I bought this phone because I was forced to. My S3 was stepped on and smashed. I watched it slowly drown and its own LCD Ink. Horrible. However I have really gotten used to this J 3, and I even installed Gorilla Glass on top of the gorilla glass is already on it. You can't even tell there's a cover on it. It's a flexible glass mixed with plastic kind of like the stuff on your windshield. Please let me know which launcher you
vino41, 14 Jul 2016It performs like an iPhone.Indeed. The performance is suprisingly good. I use it with a third party launcher to avoid the limitations of touchwiz and it just flies...
