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.
Benito9927, 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!

Anonymous, 03 Sep 2017This phone is absolute crap. Dont waste your time or money on this phone. Battery is 2600mah, ... moreWell God damn dude what did u do to your J3 because mine fully charges in about 1 and a half hours, runs games perfectly fine and downloads pretty fast. 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.
John Rs., 28 Oct 2017This phone is actually great, to me it has great speed, loud speaker, very good picture qualit... moreAgreed. I have this rooted, got rid of the bloatware. Fast and good battery life. I just wish it came with a better camera.
This phone is actually great, to me it has great speed, loud speaker, very good picture quality.. Wide touch screen andit loads fast enough.. Don't listen to anyone else, believe me, it's well worth it... If you take care of your phone correctly, it will last long..
so sorry my galaxy 4 fell and broke after only falling 100 times it was good while it lasted had it when it first came out so i was forced to get a ne phone didnt have the cash at time fone broke so settled for something cheap and quick and the j3 emerge is a great fone for the time being does great things and hopefully i will be able to upgade to the samsung j7 but anyone looking for something just for the moment the j3 emerge is great until you can get better or god makes a way for you have a blessed one
This phone is afwul. It overheats, has a terrible batttery, it's screen is more fragile than Gordon Haywards leg, and has the camera from 2001. DO. NOT. BUY.
shanvel, 17 Sep 2017Yes.Woring all network sim cardsthank you bro!!!!
I bought this low-tier phone as I sold my iPhone 6s+ to get the iPhone X when it comes out. I worked on the chipset for this phone and I am surprised at how slow it is. Must be using cheap slow memory as our development phones were much faster that this. It's kind of sad but then I guess that is why it only cost 150$ new.

This phone is no good!!!!, camera doesn't send clear pictures,videos don't record,freezes up often,and cant get good reception most of the time.
This phone is absolute crap. Dont waste your time or money on this phone. Battery is 2600mah, BUT NO QUICK CHARGE!!! So it takes forever to charge. Also, for some reason, my WiFi speed is terrible on this phone. Whenever I download anything, it downloads at about 1mbps even though my Internet speed is 70mbps down. Every other device is getting the 70 down except this phone. Also, gold luck running games, it stutters and freezes a lot. Speaker is on the right side of the phone, weird position first of all, but the speaker is not loud at all. I've also seen a couple people with this phone try to make a phone call and the person on the end of the line couldn't hear the person talking on this phone. The ONLY positives I can think of about this phone is that its a amoled screen and the front is pretty attractive. The back is ugly but the front looks good. There's a lot more that makes this phone a terrible choice but I'll stop now. Unfortunately, I'm stuck with this phone for a hear because its on contract. But I'm buying an unlocked LG V20 off eBay for $200 (which is cheaper than this phone)
