My phone has Android 5.1.1, could someone tells me how to upgrade at least to Android 6.0? I couldn't root it successfully with Kingroot so to link/move apps on externals SD with Apps2SD or Force2SD. I need Android 6.0 as I read that it supports external SD to be set as primarily install location and the problems with decreasing space of internal SD to be solved. Now I have 6 GB free on external but can't install more apps because I have 500 MB free on internal.

Globe_Agent, 20 Nov 2017May I know if Samsung Galaxy J3 is duos or not?Depends on the actual model, different versions can be distributed over the countries. So the answer is YES, but make sure and double check when you buy, my suggestion is put 'dual' when you search, and after, again, double check the description of the model on the target list
Anonymous, 21 Nov 2017Sumsung's site states 1.5GB of ram: http://www.samsung.com/africa_en/smartphones/galaxy-j3-201... moreThe version with a Spreadtrum SOC has 1.5 GB RAM; the version with an Exynos SOC (mostly sold in North America) has 2 GB RAM.

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

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.
