Samsung Galaxy J3 Review

What is the Samsung Galaxy J3? If you're after a more affordable taste of Samsung's smartphone stylings then the £150 Galaxy J3 might serve as a suitable fit. It packs in some premium touches, like a Super AMOLED display but beyond that might run a little dry in terms of interest for some users. The...

Cheap, and surprisingly likable

There aren't many new phones you can compare to the 5-inch Samsung Galaxy J3. An extremely inexpensive device with parts to match, the phone nevertheless performed better than I expected, but never stellar. Battery life was strong, it ships with the current version of Android and its daylight photo...

Samsung Galaxy J3 (2016) review

Not every phone can be the Samsung Galaxy S7 . For one thing, not everyone can afford a Galaxy S7 – but for a while Samsung went dark on budget phones, to the disappointment of fans of the brand who lacked capacious wallets. Samsung Galaxy J3 specs Weight : 138g …...

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐SUPER Phone!

Before this, I had an HTC Desire I liked quite a bit. Once the screen cracked, I went searching on Amazon for another Desire to replace it. Unfortunately, it was either out of stock or no longer being sold (I can't remember which). I located this Samsung Galaxy J3 to use on my VIRGIN MOBILE network, and purchased it SIMPLY for the 16g internal memory. I was tired of never having any space for the apps I wanted. You know, the ones that DON'T transfer over to a memory card? Yeah, those.I received my Samsung Galaxy J3 on 27 June 2016. Since then I have been overjoyed with the performance. I start...

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐Great phone full of features for the price!

Whew! What can I say but wow! This thing has more tricks up it's silicone sleeve than Houdini! Packed with features and plenty of room for all the apps you use. Accu weather is a great featured app as well. Works great with the Caldwell chronograph app for showing ballistics data for us air rifle target shooters as well. Great color on the 5MP camera's pictures as well as great detail. nice screen size for a user my age as well. The on-screen keyboard keys could be bigger an less hyper-sensitive, but quite usable with practice. Such bold colors on over-all look of the screen I find pleasing to...

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐Sometimes cheaper is actually Better

The picture on amazon makes the phone look rather ugly, so I want to say that it looks quite elegant in person. The color is much better in person. I had a Samsung 5S and although it worked ok, I got a crack on the screen and elected to get a new hone rather than get the screen replaced. Even with the cracked screen, I was able to sell it for 110.00 and then buy this new J3 and have cash leftover. So, I am pleased with the deal I made.The one thing I can really say that is an absolute improvement for me over the 5S I had is the area where you plug your phone charger in. The 5 S had an annoying...
