Product Description

The Samsung Galaxy A3 is the smartphone suitable for individuals whose desire is to own a compact phone. It features entry-level additions, but besides those, it has high-end features that can make you think you’ve got a device comparable to Galaxy’s S7.

The advantages this phone has over other phones are its long-lasting battery that’s good for long video-viewing, its great look, and its being a water-resistant phone. The downsides for the phone include the high price and the low resolution screen. Spec-wise, it has a 4.7-inch 720-pixel display, 16 GB internal storage and 2 GB RAM, and it uses Android 6 for its OS.

The screen, where the high and the low quality hardware parts meet, uses AMOLED panel with strong colors that can be adjusted to match your preferences. Switch the “basic mode” setting if you don’t welcome looking at vivid colors. If you are into a display with a limited resolution and don’t mind the screen to be a little fuzzy, then this phone might be a good choice.

The A3 doesn’t use Android 7, but there’s not much difference between the 6 and the 7, except that the 7 has advanced notifications. The advantage of which is that it displays more information and allows users to write reply messages directly on the notification bar.

On the other hand, there are features which the A3 boasts of. For instance, it has an interface with a unique style and more customization options. Users can use different folders for different apps, allows them to arrange the apps according to their liking and allows them to view apps on menu pages rather than by scrolling up and down.

Last but not the least reason to consider buying this phone is its S Health app. The app allows users not only to keep track of their steps, but also log their meals and their GPS-track walks, cycles and hikes.
