I have the USA version and I have had this phone for exactly two years. I’ve found many issues with this phone, so her they are. My volume down button rarely changes the volume while the up always works. The phone vibrates every 10 minutes for NO reason, I’ve shit the notification thing off and everything to do with vibrations and I’ve factory reset the phone miltiple times and it still has the same issue. I have another one and it vibrates every 30 minutes and we’ve factory reset it too. I’m not quite sure how to fix it. If I turn my brightness below 10 percent the phone screen starts flickering and does not stop. Every time I go to use the google app it immediately crashes for no appearent reason. I’ve tried my SIM card in different phones, so I know that isn’t the issue, but my phone vibrates like someone is calling but there is no notification or way to answer. After the phone stops ringing, no notification appears but when I go to the phone app, there’s a missed call. The caller ID often doesn’t work and just appears with the phone number.
I had this phone for like 3 weeks, screen started to look all greenish.. then blacked out completely. unable to see absolutely nothing ,.. works fine, but I can't see nothing. you can hear stuff but unable to use due to black out screen, pretty messed up about this phone.. otherwise, i loved it
A good phone, display is cracking very easy... otherwise, a very good phone.
have one now, grate phone, after you remove the default OS(void the guarantee) and install a custom rom, you gain lots of free space and increased response speed
Had one for 2 years and counting until it was stolen...no problems, just don't save too much on it cause the memory fill quickly
I had one for just over a year, it says it has 2gb of ram but it doesn't feel like it does, don't get me wrong its an alright phone for the price, if you take care of it and don't damage it it works great, but I cracked the screen and tried to replace it, it did not work, but they were going to charge me £80 to fix it which was pretty much all the phone was worth, it ran snapchat and instagram, even a few games but nothing very heavy, I wouldn't recommend buying it second hand as you could do what I did, pay £20 to get out of the contact and upgrade so for £2 a month more than what I was paying I now have a Huawei P Smart which is amazing, it has dual cameras, triple the ram and 4 times the storage! I found myself constantly running out if storage on the J3 and had to reset it about 4 times during my 1 year of using it. For all you would pay for one its alright, the Camera was pretty decent on it, but I wouldn't buy one now in 2018
Two years on still a great phone, good looking, full functional and internet speed. large screen and vibrant colours.
Omg guys come on, its good for the price. There is phones that costs 200 euro but still less good than this one. If you want super speed phone which can handle 1000 apps at a time buy expensive one like Samsung Galaxy S9+ and you'll be pleased with it, or not??!! There is always something bad about phone that most of you say and what about good sides?
AnonD-526321, 14 Apr 2016Dear all,
* Would like to clear all of your queries regarding j3 Based on my one week usage... moreYou first line "one week usage" makes your review worthless.
Not many issues arise in the first week, you have not used enough of the memory, not recieved enough cookies and most likely not had to update anything. The battery has not had to charge very many times, therefore it has not had a chance to over heat.
you would still have "new phone syndrome" which is something I have just made up but basically means you have the protective wrapping still on it, keep it safe from dust and don't let a single person touch it.
Keep the phone for 3- 6 months, you will see the problems..
My Galaxy J3 V would pop up with random apps when I would open the screen. Sometimes it was an app on my phone that I had never used.
Now that I have officially had it for 2 years and 2 days, it died. It required a factory reset. I lost a lot. Is it a coincidence that the phone died at the 2 year mark?
I have installed Lineage Os 14.1 and i ace android 7.1.2! Its super fast, less bloatware, same battery and better UI. Higly reccomend it!
