Just under $69.00 out the door at my local Boost store. Much improved reception/signal, call clarity both ways, faster LTE and wifi, and more app control compared to my older Boost Phone (Kyocera Hydro Icon). A lot of phone for the money. Love easy mode. Easy to clear history on web pages. Talk and text works better. Texting is more intuitive.
I charge my phone every morning and is never lower than 50% when starting. Usually reaches full charge in an hour and I don't use the battery saver. Google Maps work better too. 1Weather radar is back and works better. The audio with headphones is great and the speakerphone is also a huge improvement. Never had a $600 phone and feel I'll never need one. I'll just be taking her easy with this one. The Dude abides.
Anonymous, 06 Mar 2017Goes through Sprint for the BEST deal possible. Do not ever go to sprint. Disgusting company with unreal prices and many hidden fees. I remember getting the s6 edge from a sprint store, spend 500$ cash up front for most of the phone cost and for the first bill, literally 2 days later my entire service is cut off and I owe 250$ because of some hidden fee and a fee for "spending over my spending limit" due to my credit 500$ was too much for me to spend so they literally charged me 250$ and cut service because I. SPENT. TOO. MUCH?!?! Never have I heard of something so ridiculous. Luckily it was only the 2nd day since I bought the contract so I was able to return it with no problem. Not to mention their plans are outrageously high. I wouldn't recommend to my worst enemy.

Positively, 27 Feb 2017I am wondering which company that you are with because I am looking to buy with a good sale. B... moreHad three Samsung Galaxy S6 with Sprint. We went with Boost and with the Galaxy j3 emerge. Best prepaid phone to compare with the Galaxy 6 S phone. $167 out the door and my phone bill for 3 of these phones is $116 with tax a month. Have it setup to come directly out of my checking. Doesn't feel like a prepaid phone!
Anonymous, 08 Feb 2017is it available in india if yes then where i will buy it?It will be avilable March 15, 2017 in India!! Hope you get to get one. Love mine, awesome phone.
Positively, 27 Feb 2017I am wondering which company that you are with because I am looking to buy with a good sale. B... moreRight now you if you switch to Sprint the phone is free. And they have some awesome plans that are unlimited talk, text, and data. I have 2 lines on my plan and I have unlimited everything for $90, it is autopay but if you don't have autopay it is $100 a month. You can't beat that deal anywhere, cuz I shopped around before going to Sprint. They are the only contracted company that has unlimited data, and it is 4G LTE. So far had awesome service and I have been out where it would be a dead zone and still had service. And I love the phone, it does so much stuff.
Loser, 17 Feb 2017The worst cell phone I have ever had.Phone drops calls before you can say a sentence. Loses so... moreI am wondering which company that you are with because I am looking to buy with a good sale. But I know that it depends on which company you go through because some production companies have the signals set to go through specific types of towers.
is this phone launched in any other country can not see anywhere in uk ??
Galaxy J3 Emerge. When my phone times out ie. is in sleep mode it doesn't give me any notification sound when I get text messages. I have turned the volume up on all settings and checked everywhere I could find to make sure that the notifications settings are all turned on. Anyone have any ideas?
The j3 Emerge is not very different from the others in the J3 family. The only real noticeable differences are the different back and the 1.5Gb ram. The only way I would suggest this phone is if it is on a really good sale. You could find better phones for under if not the same price of this phone
Love this phone , just can't figure out how too remove the virgin mobile logo from my top left notification bar , only time it disappears is when I have a notification.
