Libbylou, 25 Jun 2018I literally have hated this phone from day one, I've had it a year now and can't stand it. The... moreI've had the same issues too, I have to reset mine very 2 months just to get to work a little les laggy. I can't stand that not even the most shitty games it can't run them decently, and even the camera take forever to load... I know it's a cheap phone but at best you should only get it if your other phone broke and you need something for a month or two MAX. you'll get sick of it after a week and you'll feel like throwing it. Please don't buy it unless you need it.
I have this phone right now and its pretty great however it keeps restarting every time I play a game for like 15 minutes i have tried everything please help...
I've had this phone for close to a year and it isn't all that great. I just switched to a Note 4 and it's WAY better for all that it is an older device. One of the most frustrating things with the J3 is that I had to keep turning off the game optimization after the latest o/s update if I didn't want my phone to keep rebooting itself while trying to play a game...even something as simple as Solitaire would see it reboot itself. And there are several other games that the J3 simply can't even download, yet an older device with an older o/s has no issues with them. I get that the J3 is a cheaper phone, but it's really not worth it.
When I got this phone, it was labeled at Galaxy J3 (2017). Totally incorrect, and the actual J3 2017 is 100 times better. When I upgraded this phone to 8.0, but just got slower. The 2.5 GB of RAM is just nothing to even bother with. The 5 MP Camera is nothing to bother with either. Not a good phone at all.
Anonymous, 15 Nov 2018I bought this phone for my then 6 year old son. Two years later and no issues with it, and it... morei dropped my j3 ecipse 4 times twice on metal and twice on concrete and yes it was on the screen and it still does not have issues. this phone is durable
I bought this phone for my then 6 year old son. Two years later and no issues with it, and it survived the young one dropping it (of course, it is in a protective case with tempered screen protector). It is easy to use and never glitches. I love that I can load the McAfee all-protective app so I can track him, and he can send an SOS in an emergency to specific phone numbers. It's a great phone!
i have a J3 eclipse and it is awsome one of the best phones i had. i will always be a samsung fan
I also have a Samsung J3 and it is a piece of crap. $140 phone you would expect it to work flawlessly but had it a week and it will not send a text. And this is when I have full service, and am able to make a call at that time. I had a $39 Alcatel that I had for several years without a single issue until I broke the screen.
Tommy H, 25 Jul 2018Ok. This is a cheap phone but it performs okay. Not very fast. Speakerphone Not Good but what ... moreDo not waste your money on anything Moto worst phone I ever had was a Moto G4 still paying for it went but another phone
Ok. This is a cheap phone but it performs okay. Not very fast. Speakerphone Not Good but what can one expect for about 100 bucks. Battery life is decent. Would like more performance so I guess i must spend more and move to Moto g or Honor 7x impossibly.
Can this phone connect to 5ghz because the spec says abgn wifi compatibility but 5ghz said doesn't appear when I wifi search

I literally have hated this phone from day one, I've had it a year now and can't stand it. The problems first happened when it completely shut down everything and I had to reset the entire phone not long after I got it loosing everything on it. Sense then it glitches like really bad it never stops. Random apps open and close frequently, I miss calls because half the time it didn't ring, the power and home button don't work half the time it normally takes like ten minutes to get into my phone in the morning, when people call and it does ring because the power and home button do not work I can't answer bc the screan don't light up for the call. This is the biggest peice of shit phone I've ever had, deffenitly switching to Apple phones. I DO NOT RECOMEND THIS PHONE TO ANYONE!
I bought a brand new J3 Emerge, and it was having a lot of trouble working right out of the box. It wouldn't receive some phone calls or some text messages. and it would get bogged down to much. I didn't like it so I gave it away to someone else....
Anonymous, 13 Nov 2017Agreed. I have this rooted, got rid of the bloatware. Fast and good battery life. I just wish ... moreHow can I get this phone rooted so that I can get rid of apps like Facebook (privacy invader) and Amazon (just want Kindle)?
