the j3 2017 is actually a downgrade to the 2016 one
it has a weaker processor, quad core 1.4 compared to 2016's 1.5
non removable battery
a weaker battery, 2400mah compared to 2600
ram, storage and resolution are the same for both devices
So if you already have the 2016 version don't get the 2017 because you will only be downgrading to a weaker phone
Instead of making the bezels smaller Samsung went and made them even bigger than compared to last years j3 smh

to answer your question about the removable battery
No for the 2017 model
Yes for the 2016 model
The J3 2017, is a wasted product release. Some of us want 'small', but reasonably powerful phone. They put in low end camera, low end processor. I like the J series are the battery is removable.....

J3-16 last full 7hrs with 2 sim cards use & lte with 1 bar.. so more power needed. Frum 100-10%. That why i expect 9hrs solid with 2 sims & lte 1 bar. If ur coverage is excellent, 1 sim only. It should go to 12 hrs++
