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)?
game performance= good 8/10
camera= not bad 5mp/2mp
battery= 8/10 5 to 6 hours of continuous streaming at 4G
the rest is just as perfect as any other latest phone.

Ive had mine for almost a year and I've had absolutly problems at all. Was thinking of upgrading but may not bcuz it works jus as well now as the 1st day I got it.
Worst piece of crap Samsung has ever made.This J3Emerge started working bad since day one: dropped calls,poor camera performance,ugly looks in the back side,sloppy wifi hot spot,lags in voice sounds during calls. I'm returning it to Virgin Mobile. I was looking for Motorola E4,a much better phone according to experts reviews,but unfortunately was out of stock. I have to nag tech support at Virgin and Samsung,and they couldn't do anything to improve my impression with this shitty phone. Samsung really disappoints with these plastic junks. My brother bought a 1000 times better HTC One and keeps teasing with this Sammy!
how do I turn off the screen change option (I don't want the screen to automatically go to portrait mode)
best phone on the market for the price ive slamed it in the trunk of the car, dropped it in the bath tub full of water and dropped it down to the next deck on an iol rig and it is just fine.
For starters whenever I pick up this phone and press the screen unlock button the screen will turn on and shut off immediately my phone is up to date i have called tech support many times about the many many issues i have had with this price of garbage. Pop ups happen all the time from various apps. Do not go near this phone you will regret it. I can't even play music anymore it pauses the song every two seconds while it's sitting in the open screen facing up so there's no external factor causing it. Restarting doesn't ever fix the issues just delay them for 2 min max.
I rate 4/5.
It has an IPS display with almost no IPS glow issues, so the viewing angles are great.
The sprint variant will also ship with the msm8917 (quad core) (I checked CPU-Z on mine).
LED has PWM control, meaning you can change the brightness with a slider.
There is no status LED so yeah.
It has no NFC.
camera is more like 720p than 1080p, it's definitely not REAL 1080p.
it has wifi direct so printing and stuff works.
Durability is okay. mine survived quite a few falls before shattering from a fall from my backpack (I'm 5'9). Touchscreen remained functional and a screen replacement was easy to do since the LCD and glass are fused and you can just do it through the front.
It's fast enough to play basically any game without much issue. as long as you don't bloat the thing up with apps like facebook, twitter, etc (all of which run in the browser just fine, use opera for messenger and you won't need an app) the phone will run like any higher end phone fine.
AnonD-718697, 27 Nov 2017Well God damn dude what did u do to your J3 because mine fully charges in about 1 and a half h... moreWell, it's not the best, but it's not the worst. It has a beautiful screen, and only 1.5gb of RAM. Which may cause it to lag, but for most people who are using it for calls, texts, emails, Facebook etc. It's totally great! It's 1/3 the cost of the galaxy S8. So what do you expect? Otherwise, if you are having an issue with the wifi, etc, you may have a faulty phone, if you are under contract, it should be under warranty. Anyway, I would recommend oneplus. They have great phones and they cost less, you can get a 3t for around 350-450. It has 6gb of RAM, so game on. Good luck all! Make sure you put a good case on your phone!

So u must have done something to your phone for it to be that shitty
I purchased a J3 Emerge a month ago from Boost Mobile. It has spent the majority of that time at Samsung repair in Plano Texas, Boost Mobile continues to charge me for service when the phone is 1.000 miles away. Boost Mobile is totally incompetent! You only get apologies from agents when you call them. Never can get a supervisor. My J3 Emerge is an attractive paperweight.
