Zal Al-Fateh, 13 Aug 2017Really? Erm.. i thought the price of that phone is same between all countries besides certain ... moreHaa... at last, bought SMG J3-17 2 days ago. Now I've both model. 2016 & 2017... will put my review after using it later.

husband and I purchased this phone through consumer cellular and it meets all our needs. we did download google gboard keyboard because of the problem with the samsung keyboard emoji. other than that, we are happy with the phone.
John Garcia, 02 Sep 2017the j3 2017 is actually a downgrade to the 2016 one
it has a weaker processor, quad core 1.4 ... more"it has a weaker processor, quad core 1.4 compared to 2016's 1.5" - Spreadtrum SC9830 has very old Cortex-A7 cores. J3 2017 has much better Cortex-A53 cores.
"a weaker battery, 2400mah compared to 2600" - Exynos 7570 is made in 14nm, so it's more power efficient compared to Spreadtrum SOC in 28nm.
"ram, storage and resolution are the same for both devices" - In Poland J3 2016 has 1.5GB of RAM and 8GB of internal storage.
For me J3 (2017) is much better than J3 (2016).
muzzami, 24 Aug 2017super amoled version of j5 prime and on5 16 samsung know how to make good money Yes u right
It's just a rebranded j5 prime. Go get j5 prime if it's still selling because it's much cheaper than this.
John Garcia, 02 Sep 2017the j3 2017 is actually a downgrade to the 2016 one it has a weaker processor, quad core 1.4 ... moreBro, thats wrong. First the the cou is much better. The old one 1.5 ghz quad-core was fast as 1.2ghz dual-core, the new one is with 14 nm architecture (compared to the old one's 28nm) is faster and more power efficient. The battery is smaller and non-removable(which is bad), but with the new cpu the battery is more durable. Also the 2017 model has more ram, rom, better cameras, metal desing and newer android. The phone is upgrade, not downgrade...

i am waiting j3 2017.this smartphone is indian market launching date??? plz rply me ans.
Good overall phone, the only problem (that is still ongoing) is that I've restarted my phone and it's now forever trying to unlock itself, any ideas how to fix this? Is there a way to remove the back so I can remove the battery and retry.
All help is appricated, thank you.
