Samsung Galaxy J3 (2017) - User Reviews

  • WOW! This phone has One UI!

  • I have it for 1.6 years when it was at 1year it was good but now it's a lot laggy i think that even the iphone 5/5s is faster than this one, i wouldn't recomend it

  • I want in J3(2017) Bixby

  • can't upgrade to pie

  • Just got pie update and its very nice . Yeah

  • Just got my new company phone - J3 2017. It wouldn`t start up. Then connected it to the charger and manage to start it after an hour of charging. It stays on 0% battery .... Faulty straight out of the box. Incredible!

  • If someone wants to know, this phone has SBC, AAC, aptX and LDAC and something called "Scalable Codec"

  • yes, Romania. From the end of august.

  • I have j3 2017 (pro) in Indonesia and i got the android pie 9.0 and also the one ui.

  • Got the piie update already.

  • J3 2017 get pie in europ (smj330FN),?.??

  • Unable to install new updates August 2019, I am in India, Hyd.

  • Pie succesfully loaded in Malaysia. Has nightmode and autorotate homescreen and many changes.

  • Does anyone have got the android pie update?

  • Not you only. I have same issue half year. But screen flickering with low brightness level.

  • i have samsung galaxy j3 prime (2017) and srceen start flickering in 5th day -_- sorry my bad english :^/

  • Wich is better j3 2017 or galaxy S5 i900f

  • samsung galaxy J3 2017, the battery does not charge.

  • my dad has it and it works fine

  • I know. Mine is J3 2017!

  • I have this phone for about 1,5 years now and have zero problems with it. I'm a light user, so battery lasts from 3 to 5 days depending on usage, that's pretty good. The only thing I hate about this phone is non-removable battery - was it really that hard to make it removable? I guess not, because J3 2018 has removable battery.

  • Well, my sister has this phone and it's horrible. I mean, it's a nice phone but.. It randomly crashes, randomly turns off, randomly breaks apps, can sometimes lag hardcore.. I don't know man. I wouldn't buy this. :/

  • The J3 pro 2017 has a bug problem after updating the march update.

  • My two biggest complaints are the display and camera. Neither one is bad, but they're not as good as some older Galaxy J phones. I wish they stuck with Amoled and I wish the camera produced more colorful pictures like my Galaxy J5 2015 (that one had Amoled). I still think the J3 2017 is good phone for the price.

  • Screen is awful better LCD or amoled

  • Love mine aluminium build, hate this glass backs like S8, she can withstand a few bumps, good bands on it........$150 i paid. Also its not a darn surfboard mini TV lol..compact

  • Has anyone else experienced a screen flickering issue on this specific phone. This phone is my mom's and she got on in February 2018 and it had a screen flickering issue so she got a refund and bought another one, but it also had the same issue. This problem is definitely hardware related and has nothing to do with the software as updates have not helped.

  • You have to hold the power and home buttons together.

  • Mine does not have screenshòt. Pls anyone got discomfort concerning the issue?

  • What's the Difference between SM-J330G and SM-J330F hardware wise?

  • No Android Pie for A5 2017, a shame

  • I can't believe

  • ohhhhhhhhhhhhh pie pie pie!!!! and perhaps One UI

  • J3 2017 will receive Android Pie 9.0 in September 2019

  • 04.12.2018 November security patch update This is incredible!

  • My j3 pro 2017 mic not working after oreo 2nd update. I already factory reset but problem still there. The only solution i have is using headset.

  • Tap *#06# and you check your IMEI number and you will se if that number is identical with yours on back of the phone.

  • how cen we know it is original

  • How is the display quality of this phone as it is mentioned "PLS" , how is it compared to its previous model galaxy j3 2016 which had "super amoled" display that is used on most of samsung galaxy phones? And how is the battery life on galaxy j3 2017 because its capacity is decreased to 2400 which was 2600 on galaxy j3 2016 model.

  • I kept thinking that only J330G has LTE Band 20 (800), but, according to Samsung's official website, J330F has this LTE band too! I've also verified it on my phone by using *#0011#. It's a good bargain - 13MP camera at this price range, normally it would just be 8MP.

  • The phone is great. The best you can get for the price.

  • Well, I recommend to you to use screen protector and case. On some sites I read that the screen is protected, but I don't believe so. The phone is so beautiful with 2.5D curved screen and it is a great pity to hide it, but is better to protect the phone.

  • Well, the phone is solid for this price. The display is ok, but the superAMOLED is way better. This is the biggest misadventure and the absence of the fingerprint.

  • Can someone who's using this phone tell me is it good? How good is the display because it's not amoled and is it scratch resistant?

  • My J3 2017 just got today October security patch. Thank you Samsung.

  • it is not j3 2017 it is j3 pro 2017.

  • soft or hardware side

  • I have bought this phone (j3 pro 2017) a month ago , i really like it the battery is much better than the previous one , I have just one issue the screen start flickering a little bit of flickering when using Youtube app and some other apps , I don't know if it s a

  • Got on September 7th the update for Android Oreo 8.0.0 in Romania! Model number: J330FNXXU3BRG2

  • I don't have Picture in Picture mode. I have Android Oreo now. Do you have the same problem?

  • My J3 2017 just got Oreo update. Model number: J330FNXXU3BRG2 Macedonia

  • I had already updated my j3 2017 to oreo but 1 thing is missing is in the device storage setting that apps in device storage is no longer there. Not like in Naugat were you can easily transfer all apps in device storage to sd card because you have the option to view only apps in device storage.

  • My J3 Pro 2017 (J330G) already received Android Oreo OS update in Malaysia, it's official. You should check it manually in Settings > Software Updates. My firmware version: J330GDXU3BRH1

  • Hello, did someone updated the J3 2017 to Oreo?

  • You can read the notices inside Samsung Members app talking about devices that get the Oreo update. It's official that J3 2017 will get it in around November 2018.

  • Really a good phone. Better than iPhone 7, in my opinion. So impressed it also has NFC features for this mid-range phone. Samsung you did a good job in this part !

  • Good phone, I really like Samsung galaxy mobiles,

  • It's a good phone. Go for it.

  • no compass. so sad

  • Worst phone ever had..battrey and software ara disaster!!

  • There will be Android Oreo update on September, 28. Very disappointing from Samsung.

  • This are sources for Oreo update. It is possible that J3, J5 and J7 2017 will receive a direct update to Android 8.1 in the coming months.

  • The Oreo update is confirmed now officially. The update is expected in the summer in Q3. The update will be begining July 13.

  • Why not Trusted face?

  • Oreo update??????

  • galaxy j3 has very advanced features like iphone

  • Talk about cutting corners! Just stick to the J3 (2016) at least you'd get Super-amoled screen and a more powerful battery, Most else are pretty much remains the same.

  • does the j3 2017 were support for gaming?

  • please, can you tell me which is better in battery life between J3 Pro ( 2017 ) and J5 ( 2016 ) ?

  • why not amoled

  • samsung j3 pro is very nice but sound speeker volume is very low

  • Plane to Line Switching

  • what PLS screen means?

  • This is J3 Pro - 2017 with 2gb ram . Your phone you talk is J3 LTE 2016 with 1.5 gb ram .

  • really awesome phone...easy to use and just the right's also very pretty

  • my comment is this phone is the best phone ever used

  • I do not believe it has 2 GB of ram because the J3 I own only has 1.5 GB of ram, but it may be a different one than the one specified.

  • Don't like that the battery can not be removed , so when camera lens is broke u can't change it

  • no it is pls.every youtuber says that by its quality

  • go for any other phone but not for j3 has a very big issue.i bought it 2 times but same problem showed up.when you buy it after 2 to 3 days,the phone will stop just dont go for j3 pro go for j3 2017 or j5 prime

  • Does the battery have the memory effect?

  • Absolutely love this phone. It's the best I've ever had. So easy to use. Looks gorgeous and has loads of different tgemes which I love.

  • can this phone be charged on a charging pad

  • no compass

  • j3 2017 because it is latest

  • how much price of j3 pro

  • J3 2017 or J5 Prime.. Why?

  • @Hugh, OTG works, and compass ir included

  • usb microusb 2.0, usb on-the-go

  • Does the J3 2017 support OTG sticks? Specs say no compass is that true?

  • Magnetic sensor compasses must be added to all mobiles

  • Disclaimer. We can not guarantee that the information on this page is 100% correct.

  • not 100% correct

  • People you can read the damn specs even here on gsmarena

  • I have a 2 sim model. yes, the screen looks good. the color is bright. now i am confused whether it amoled or pls. I think it's amoled.

  • The model I am talking about is the Dual Sim one which has PLS and it‘s superior to the amoled in supposedly more premium A3(2017). Perhaps gsmarena does not have a page for the dual sim one?!

  • its amoled

  • Anyone care to explain to me why PLS screen on this looks better (to me as I compared them earlier) than the AMOLED in A3(2017)?

  • sm j3308 have 2600mah where as 2gb ram modle have 2400mah battery but my set last long a day easily

  • Dear tell me about its bettery usage?

  • Good phone

  • Any suggestion for good mobile Phone in price range 150-200 US, but not chinese brands, Thanks

  • i have j3 2017 sm-j3308 with 3gb ram !!

  • really??? but my j3 2017 sm-j3308 hav snapdragon 425 :/

  • sm-j3308 or you can consider sm-g5700 ;)

  • depends upone which variant you are comparing. these are 2 powerful variant which you can buy if u buy j3 2017 sm-j3308 then it is good (3gb ram 32 gb rom fingerprint sensor 2600mah battery front camera 5mo with flashlight and android 7.1.1) if u buy j5 prime sm-g5700 then it is also good (3gb ram 32gb rom fingerprint sensor 2400mah but front camera is 8mp instead of 5 and no flash light on front but android 6.0.1)

  • Galaxy J3 with model number SM-J3308 has been spotted on TENAA. It has a 5-inch HD Display powered by quad-core Exynos 7570 14nm processor with 3GB RAM and 32GB of internal storage.On Camera, it has a 13MP rear camera and 5MP front camera The Smartphone runs on Android 7.0 Nougat packed with a 2600mAh Battery and front fingerprint sensor. my question is should i buy this variant of j3 2017 sm-j3308 or buy j5 prime 2016 sm-G5700 (3gb ram 32gb rom fingerprint sensor) ?

  • Press in the folowing order volume up+ home key +power switch.

  • It has 4G all the time on my phone, but the speed is limited to 256/256 because of my mobile plan of 4,90 €. You need to enable 4G/3G/2G automatic to get 4G to work.

  • Good phone, it sells now in my country about 99 €. For this price amazing, I bought it to my brother for 179 €. Even for normal price it is great phone. Good 5" screen, big display, good colours and can run several apps at once. Headphone jack iPhone has not. I dislike the Samsung apps. Even at fresh, they have about 35 apps in Android Store and most of these apps you cannot delete. Only disable, like Micsoft apps. Facebook app needs to be disabled as soon as you see it. Garbage, since do not have account. Why to have two browsers you can't remove??? Two emails. Two something. They need to made it better, phone slows down a bit after install just because of this amount of apps you don't need taking space. Camera is amazing for a price.

  • which one is better between j3 2017 and j7 2016 ?

  • can you define multitasking? my mum's looking for a new cheap phone, we were looking at this one and the specs didn't look too bad!

  • Cannot multitasking.. lags a lot..

  • It is(was) an excellent smartphone in his range, until today, 3.5 months since I bought it...its screen became black immediately after the last update of SOME of the applications, but not turned off, so in the dark there can still be seen some light! Impossible to turn off from its normal button, Impossible to do anything actually....pretty sad, i was fond of this little thing...

  • J5 prime bro, J5 prime

  • it was still a great phone

  • My another phone hang. Only the word SAMSUNG appeared on the screen. Can't open the back cover. Normaly we can restart the phone by take out and put back the battery. My question is.. how to turn on the phone like we restart it?

  • In my country we call the same phone J3 pro and it does have 4G coverage. For the price i think its a great phone

  • That is the fault of facebook not Samsung.

  • Why are you comparing a flagship with a budget phone

  • yes it's orginal,

  • i can find j3 2017 with 3gb ram 32 gb memory in market. is this model original? please comment.

  • A3 2017

  • j5 prime

  • Why can't you get 4g on Samsung j3 2017. what about h and h+ ?

  • J5 prime or J3 (2017) which is good?

  • no 4g coverage

  • Not a bad budget smartphone. But new battery when sot issue. An issue. In my experience battery life is first thing to go old on these. No issues otherwise. Not a powerhouse phone by any means but it will do

  • Can't enjoy 4g internet on my Samsung. always on 2g. why

  • gsmarena not 100% correct

  • Pretty crappy compared to my 3-year old S4. I've had this since November 2017, so just about 3 months. First Google and Chrome browsers stopped. A tech friend of mine fixed it for me. Then the SMS function stopped. It crashed every time I tried to open it, so I could neither read nor send texts. The guys at Carphone Warehouse couldn't fix it and neither could my tech friend. He finally advised installing the standard free Android Mesages app from PlayStore. I did and it works a treat, easily recovering my old text messages from before. Slower than the old S4 and generally shoddy.

  • Ok thanks

  • Had no problem at all with taking videos

  • no

  • Does the phone have notification light and second do the navigation keys light up. Thankyou

  • extend ur pocket size.........

  • Ypu can purchase the batter with higher life in Ebay for around 10.00

  • i dont understand this phone i bought my boyfriend and myself the same phone at the same place same day he has had lots of issues with charging and battery life yet i dont have half these issues and buying a new battery is nearly impossible cause no one seems to carry them what the hell

  • Anyone had problems with video recorder on this set it keeps going blurred and taking ages to re focus ??

  • DO NOT INSTALL FACEBOOK ON THIS PHONE. If you do, you cannot completely uninstall it. Slithery trick on the part of samsung. NOT impressed. :(

  • Can anyone recommend a nice man purse? This phone won't fit into my pocket :-D

  • i solved that: Setting-Accessibility- Notification reminder off

  • J7 Core or J3 2017 with 3gb ram & 32gb rom (J3308)

  • please help how to stop notifications. like one any notification or of facebook or text message came utill I dont open it, again and again notification ring after different intervals? whats this problem

  • Yes, my wife's phone is flickering.

  • no

  • So then it doesn't have a noise cancellation feature then or is there some feature in the settings that claim that it has.

  • It says PLS right on this site

  • i didn't find any secondary mic

  • please can someone tell me if this phone really have a second dedicated Mic for noise cancellation. I know it's in the specification list but I want to know if it is true and not just some error. Am planning on buying it will really need it for a lot of recordings in noisy areas.

  • amoled

  • j3 2017 . does not have super amoled screen.

  • j5 prime if u want good camera and fingerprint sensor.

  • this 2017 phone??

  • J5 prime or J3 (2017)?

  • Yeah.

  • do you have screen flickering problems on low brightness?

  • Are you sure?

  • J7,J5,J3 2017 will get Oreo in Q4.

  • Nvm they actually have wrong information about the phone where I bought it. It's not super amoled but still great had no problems with it :)

  • Are you sure you got the right phone? Maybe you got last year's idk. Because I have this phone and non of your problems. Also it has super amoled display.

  • I got this for 140 dollars without a contract and fully unlocked with dual SIM. For that price I'm very happy with the phone :)

  • no

  • no

  • From where can i switch light when i press the arow button and recent app buton

  • I bought one j3 pro 2017 but a little deference the Ram is 3GB and the memory is 32 GB. I want to make sure is Samsung has produced like the description that i mentioned.

  • Does anyone know if the new j3 2017 model will recive the 8.0 update ?

  • ---> CidadeBranca I don't know what your phone problem was caused by, but it's better not to use magnetic cover.

  • My phone does not turn on. What happened? I bought a magnetic cover. Will this break the phone? I buy this phone at December 2017.

  • I put my cell phone on charge and now it does not turn on. What happened? Does it have to do with my cape having a magnet? What will be the defect of the mobile phone?

  • Yeah, I hate when Samsung puts big home button at all phones from lineup (for example: J 2017 lineup an A 2016 lineup) but only J5 and J7 (A5 6 and A7 6) got a fingerprint sensor.

  • And there is big home button, but don't has fingerprint. Also J2 2017 has Super AMOLED screen.

  • Samsung, 2017. No super Amoled screen. No scratch resistance. And further more, there is a screen blinking in low brightness and I doubt this is a software problem. This is unacceptable for a mobile phone that costs about 250 euros.

  • I bought one but I couldn't find the NFC

  • My phone is singe SIM and have NFC.

  • Also, when you update application, you need to change storage location again, because they will be on Devise memory.

  • 1. Settings 2. Apps 3. Open application 4. Select ''Storage'' and change the storage location by selecting SD card. Of course if you can do this. You will find something like ''X MB/16.00 GB of Device memory used''. P.S. When you download application from Google play select the application with long press, like 3D Touch in iPhone. Then select App info and change the storage location as I stated above. Very easy. :)

  • no fingerprint

  • what about the finger print in j3 pro 2017 ..??? which phone is best j7 prime or j3 pro 2017 ?? is j3 pro have finger print ?

  • Apparently single sim version has NFC, but Duos version doesn't. Can anyone confirm this?

  • no

  • Yes.

  • no

  • Just bought j3(2017), extremely pleased so far BUT can't find where to change default storage location from phone to sd card. All help is appreciated.

  • Are this phone have a long time of battery using?

  • Samsung phones don't bend.

  • Anyone have maybe unlocking code for this cell? It's not working on Lebara. Plz HELP

  • j5 2016

  • Please answar any one is its screen scratch proof?

  • I read in one site that have, but I placed panzer screen protector film, so I recommend this also for you.

  • J3 2017 definetly

  • Are the J3 2017 are easily bendable phone or it's very hard to bend?

  • Please answar any one is its screen scratch proof?

  • What about its screen is it scratch proof?

  • No video calling in j3pro

  • Yeah. Damn it is a pity i bought this smartphone. This problem is making me crazy.

  • Depends what you want to run it for? J3 2017 I would. As J5 2017 only has 1.2x Quad-Core. So J3 2017.

  • In term of J5 2016/prime, it does have better screen (Super Amoled Display) and the camera is bit better. In term for other specs, go J3 Pro 2017.

  • J3 is your choice!

  • please help me. samsung Galaxy J5 2016 or J3 2017?

  • The message sounds very suspicious. Definitely not written by a native English speaker. Did you buy from a reputable store?

  • no

  • You can write a line in english and on second line same text in greek.

  • Probably this is downloading for a new software. I had similar case like you, when I booted my phone for a first time.

  • Dear Smartphone Geeks, My newly bought Samsung Galaxy J3 2017 displayed 'DOWNLOADING... DO NOT OFF THE TARGET' upon the very first touch. What could be responsible for this? What could that suggest? Do you guys experience similar case with your J3 2017? Thank you very much for your prompt and sincere responses. Cheers!

  • I should like to write at the same time english and greek. how can i do it?

  • Why is WiFi connection so slow? My previous phone, Lenovo a369i has better WiFi connection. WHY SAMSUNG?

  • I don't have this problem.

  • Is there screen flickering problem on low brightness setup in this phone?

  • No, but have Notification reminder which reminds you on missed call or message.

  • Hello guys does this phone have LED notification light. I want to buy uuy

  • camera not good

  • European models only.

  • Does this phone have NFC ?

  • My Samsung Galaxy J3 2017 don't have screen issues. I have read a lot of this problem, but my screen works perfectly.

  • I want to share my opinion for this phone, been using it for just 5 days, got a brand new with 2 year warranty but I've had to sell it. Pros: Very decent rear camera, pics are quite sharp, good build and nice looking design, amazing battery life with almost 9hours screen on time (you tube, web surf, instagram, facebook, viber and some voice calls). This is wifi usage only. Solid performance enough for normal user. Cons: J3 2017 has display issue, screen flickering all the time, especially when you set brightness on low. Touch screen is solid, but a little bit glitchy, speaker nice but def too low. But those screen problems are definetely deal breaker for me. What's your expirience with this phone, share your opinion please.

  • It's not bad. Better than Galaxy Core Prime I came from. Note that T-Mobile version is similar to AT&T: 1.5GB of RAM (not 2GB) and removable battery. Hard to find a case, but the Spigen fits well. Got it for $100 on sale at T-M and for that it can't be beat.

  • If you looking for canera performances Honor 6X and P9 Lite is your choice. If for games performances this is not the right phone. If you use for casual use, long last batteries life with decent rear camera with Auto Bokeh (good but somehow and sometimes it is annoying) also with Samsung Health benefit then this phone is great for you.

  • Stay out from chinese phone

  • If you are thinking about buying this phone well frankly don't and better go for honor 6a and anove even my old honor 5c works far better then this one. So sligish , limited , not friendly interface with so many missing simple things what means alot to users . Just check how many typing mistakes , never got this on huawei phones....... well I am getting rid of it after only 2 days

  • Buy the Ulefone power 2 great battery life

  • Hey can anyone help me on what phone to get, I'm stuck between the honor 6x - 195€, the p9 lite(16gb, 3gb) - 170€, honor 8 lite 16gb, 3gb (P8 lite 2017) - 195€, samsung j3 2017 - 170€, samsung j5 2017 - 200€, honor 5c - 180€, Y7(Not Prime) - 170€ and yeah I don't know any more suggestions for around that price range or quality range plz say

  • Don't worry. It's ok.

  • sorry

  • ok

  • In specifications you can read that NFC is optional. Some phones have and some phones don't have this feature.

  • I don't lie. My Samsung Galaxy J3 (2017) have NFC. Also I had installed CPU X and in the features stands that NFC is available. Also in notification bar NFC is presented and in setting. Also I can pay with NFC.

  • Lenovo is cheap phone, good specs but garbage quality such as touch issues. People hyped for nothing and lenovo fans defends a garbage products.

  • liar

  • no

  • Superb phone. Before this phone I have garbage of phones, Lenovo a369i.

  • Does the phone have Fast Charging? Can’t find it anywhere.

  • My have.

  • Does this phone have NFC?

  • get in touch from the carrier you purchased it from - they will give it to you for free.

  • Active noise cancellation with dedicated mic. Isn't this error? This phone doesn't have noise cansellation microphone.

  • So here is my early comment as I just used this phone for 5 days: 1) Although battery capacity is only 2400mah, it could be last longer for morderate use. Today I use from 5am (100%) and morderately use as browsing through Chrome for while and rarely open games (Duel Link, Asphalt Nitro) and mostly sleep with 4G data. After done work and check it again my batteries are only left 11% at 8.06pm. For me it kibda durable but hey, just use for 5 days. Not sure battery would long last or will suffer like other phone after 6 month and above. 2) Very big no for heavy games, graphic kinda stutter for morderate games. Playing Asphalt Nitro, Revolution Off Road. Kinda bit lag but still playable. For me 3D animation from Yugioh Duel Link are very lag compare from my Oppo Neo 5s. Kinda bit disappointed as Neo 5s are 2015 model but bit smooth than this phone. 3) Morderate camera quality for both front and rear camera. But front camera somehows shows much noise on certain condition. Using front flash+beauty filter could provide good decent front camera. Advanced mode is kinda disappointed me as only very few adjustable. Recording quality is decent. But honestly, I dont have any issues with camera as I still love them. 4) I know many peoples and user complaint about very low specs but with entry mid range price. But maybe you guys forgot this phone still have S Health, My Samsung and also pre installed few Microsoft Office Apps too. Also pre installed Game Launcher feature. IMO if you not even interested to try or touch these features and prefer specs more than you still have other brands choice for similar price but more good quality like Xiomi. But if you do, dont complaint about how pricey this phone. And yes, those pre installed Samsung apps is affect the price. S Health helps you on sport/exercise activities while My Samsung sometimes offer great deals coupon so I not complaint price here, althought still many people complaint that this is downgraded from J5 prime. Issues? Of course I have. Im new to Samsung phone and definately not Sammy fan lol. Heres my issues as 5 days use: 1) Sometimes screen blinking. Still dont know how and why its happens. 2) For some reason, alarm WONT ON OR WORK if phones being switched off. Kinda annoying for me as I always switched off my phone before going sleep. Now once use this phone I had no choice but keep it on during sleep. 3) This is not happpens to me, but I found this problem happens on one user at my country community group. He claimed that he use touchlight (opening flash light) as light to walk in a dark, and found out the glass nearest flash at rear camera are now cracked. Very...scary... 4) Setting is confused, and really cant find any smart gestures features on this phone (double tap to awake phone, draw Z during phone sleep to open certain apps, etc). If this features not available on this phones then it is really disappointment. If anyone know how to fix these issue please tell me how to fix. Thats all for now, will update review later after around 1-2 months.

  • it should be included. the seller has taken it.

  • It has recently developed smartphones running Tizen OS, as an alternative to its Android-based smartphones.

  • Better than i9500 and Worse than i9505. This phone is in-between. And that's strange.

  • I just bought one like this But in the box I didn't find the earplugs .yet in your video this is come we do not get the included in Malta???

  • Just bought this chick yesterday. Seems its really a good budget phones.. except battery I guess (thought I only use for 2 days for now).. Thought I have some issues yesterday as chrome got crashed twice, and my phone become super lag when installed and use whatapps due 1000+ unread messages appear (since my old phone faulty and not open whatapps more than a week). Ill post another update later.

  • I just bought this like about 2 days ago and it's already lagging like wtf how can i fix it?

  • j5 prime and j3 2017 have this problem. Samsung itself has no answer for this.

  • Did anyone has the problen same with me? I bought this device, Samsung Galaxy J3 2027 arroubd last 2 weaks But some eror appear on the display. Sometime it is flicking ( blink ) like on Automode Display. Do i dont even find where the setting for correct this. Please anyone tell me why this happened and what the best way for solve this problem, except go to service center.

  • 7 used 9free

  • how much memory is used for system operation?

  • After 5days of use; 6pm-9pm: Charging up 9pm-12pm: 1.5hrs use 1.5hrs offscreen (90% left) 12pm-6am: flight mode (sleeping) 6am-12pm: about 3 hrs of use (53% left) 12pm-6pm: about 3hrs of use (5% left) I used for browsing, whatsapp & utube only. No games No lag at all until now So, in 1 day cycle, 21hrs on. I have got about 7-7.5hrs on screen. Better than j3-16 which is about 6-6.5hrs although its battery is only 2400mah compared to 2600mah in my j3-16. So far, i satisfied with j3-17 except its screen which is not Amoled. Launching price is only 10 euro more expensive than j3-16 I bought last year.

  • Yeap.. except fingerprint

  • Is it just me or this is a J5 prime copy.

  • Haa... at last, bought SMG J3-17 2 days ago. Now I've both model. 2016 & 2017... will put my review after using it later.

  • 10Gb++. Confirmed

  • Agreed. Except 1 thing, in Malaysia, its screen is pls lcd not like 2016 model, sAmoled. Other than that, better than previous model.

  • husband and I purchased this phone through consumer cellular and it meets all our needs. we did download google gboard keyboard because of the problem with the samsung keyboard emoji. other than that, we are happy with the phone.

  • Around of 11GB

  • "it has a weaker processor, quad core 1.4 compared to 2016's 1.5" - Spreadtrum SC9830 has very old Cortex-A7 cores. J3 2017 has much better Cortex-A53 cores. "a weaker battery, 2400mah compared to 2600" - Exynos 7570 is made in 14nm, so it's more power efficient compared to Spreadtrum SOC in 28nm. "ram, storage and resolution are the same for both devices" - In Poland J3 2016 has 1.5GB of RAM and 8GB of internal storage. For me J3 (2017) is much better than J3 (2016).

  • Please tell me how much space you get out of the box

  • downgrade

  • Yes u right

  • And J5 Prime has gorilla glass and a fingerprint sensor.

  • It's just a rebranded j5 prime. Go get j5 prime if it's still selling because it's much cheaper than this.

  • Bro, thats wrong. First the the cou is much better. The old one 1.5 ghz quad-core was fast as 1.2ghz dual-core, the new one is with 14 nm architecture (compared to the old one's 28nm) is faster and more power efficient. The battery is smaller and non-removable(which is bad), but with the new cpu the battery is more durable. Also the 2017 model has more ram, rom, better cameras, metal desing and newer android. The phone is upgrade, not downgrade...

  • Metal

  • I am also waiting for this Mobile...

  • i am waiting j3 2017.this smartphone is indian market launching date??? plz rply me ans.

  • Is this coming with Metal or Plastic Body??

  • Good overall phone, the only problem (that is still ongoing) is that I've restarted my phone and it's now forever trying to unlock itself, any ideas how to fix this? Is there a way to remove the back so I can remove the battery and retry. All help is appricated, thank you.

  • So Far So Good :)

  • The 1.5 gb ram and 8 gb storage are the j320 fn version The other version has 2 gb ram and 16 gb storage exactly the same as the 2017 one

  • it has good camera , 2gb ram as compared to 2016's 1.5 gb ram and has 16 gb internal memory as compared to latters 8 gb.

  • the j3 2017 is actually a downgrade to the 2016 one it has a weaker processor, quad core 1.4 compared to 2016's 1.5 non removable battery a weaker battery, 2400mah compared to 2600 ram, storage and resolution are the same for both devices So if you already have the 2016 version don't get the 2017 because you will only be downgrading to a weaker phone

  • Instead of making the bezels smaller Samsung went and made them even bigger than compared to last years j3 smh

  • j7 nxt better big screen better processor low price

  • save contact to device, select contact tap edit.

  • super amoled version of j5 prime and on5 16 samsung know how to make good money

  • to answer your question about the removable battery No for the 2017 model Yes for the 2016 model

  • The J3 2017, is a wasted product release. Some of us want 'small', but reasonably powerful phone. They put in low end camera, low end processor. I like the J series are the battery is removable.....

  • Good phone it is nice phone

  • how to set the ringing tone to individual number.

  • the selffie camera sucks!

  • when it will launch in philippines ?

  • now in stock at Carphone Warehouse

  • Really? Erm.. i thought the price of that phone is same between all countries besides certain taxes. Anyway, maybe this time is our shinny day. Who knows tomorrow.. isnt it? 18 days to go.

  • It is 298 sgd (~940 myr) here in singapore. Extremely overpriced for basic specs. Samsung is treating Malaysia good.

  • when is it going to be available in the U.K?

  • Should enough for 1 day.. 6pm-9pm: charge up 12pm-6am: sleep well & flight mode Balance: 24-9= 15hrs Using phone= 0.65*15hrs= 10hrs (10hrs onscreen) im not the power user. Just ordinary guy. Use for daily work. Power user need at least 15hrs solid. That is only my opinion.. tq

  • Of cos it depend on the situation. J3-16 last full 7hrs with 2 sim cards use & lte with 1 bar.. so more power needed. Frum 100-10%. That why i expect 9hrs solid with 2 sims & lte 1 bar. If ur coverage is excellent, 1 sim only. It should go to 12 hrs++

  • Yes. Its is... huhu... sealed. Slimmer. Huhu

  • It has 2400mah with 14nm fabrication cpu. Less 30% power use.. its is equal to 3300mah batery used by 2016 model 28nm cpu. So my fren got j3-16... 7hrs full web browsing frum 100-10%... so thus one will last at least 9hrs... hurm.. hope so..

  • Yes. It is.. here 138 euro. Other shop only 118 euro (2yrs warr & 1 yr sreen crack)

  • Except the f.print scanner

  • Oo ic... here it launched in july 17. Already got 7.0 android out of the box. 138 euro nett

  • Thanks god. Here only 138 euro fullset including gst. Other shop give 138 including 64gb evo+ msd, local cheap jelly case & warranty by SME, 2yrs & 1 yr screen crack until 31st september 2017...yes!

  • R u sure it is samoled? Cos here in malaysia, it is pls tft. hurm. Mybe we got the other version. If so, that is awesome..

  • In my country, Malaysia. It is about 699 myr@ 138euro. At certain retailer, it is only 118 euro. So i can buy this phone, original samsung 64 gb evo+ u1@class10 msd & local cheap jelly case. Waiting the end of this month, it will be our national day. Maybe got 1-2 euro cut down. And sme@local samsung give 2 year manufacturing warranty & 1 year glass replacement for cracks at any cause until end of september 2017. Since i was using this cheap j1ace neo. I think it is ok. No comment. Just regret for swicthing samoled to pls tft. No more expensive phone since broke down my note2 in only 9months of use. Haha... that was 4 yrs ago. So... this j3-17 pro version got spec same as a37 oppo for the same price. What is ur opinion guys? Tq luv all

  • philippine, maybe..

  • what do you mean "I was owned this SAMSUNG J3 here in phil" ????????? use a dictionary dude! no one can get what you're saying

  • no

  • I was owned this SAMSUNG J3 here in phil. but the battery of this phone is draining faster .... its ridiculous ...

  • J5 prime rebranded into J3 Pro. wow!

  • I thought it had a camera as good as j5 prime but I was wrong. J3 2017 camera disappoint me.

  • So Samsung is re-releasing an inferior version of J5 Prime in the form of J3 2017 and charging more for it. How sneaky. My country only has J3 Pro and J7 Pro but I desperately need the J5 Pro. Samsung has disappointed me twice this year. They also failed to bring A3 2017 into my country earlier in the year. I need to look at other brands.

  • I use both phones and find the j5 prime has a better camera.

  • How so? Both have 13MP and F1.9. I suspect it's the same camera.

  • The camera is not as good as j5 prime.

  • Bad price about 200$ . imposed 120$ only.

  • This has almost the exact same specs as J5 Prime, which should cost much less than this. J5 Prime also has Gorilla Glass and a fingerprint scanner.

  • When it will available for sale in india ? And where? Please inform i want to purchase it

  • Where can u buy international? is it metal back?? $150 good

  • Yes

  • Can u use J3 2017 in UK? $149 ok price really, is it plastic body?.... least 7.0...wonder if USA only seems silly if so.

  • can screen mirroring?

  • does it support volte?

  • i just ask this question because samsung galaxy s8 include a 5.8 display in 148.9x68.1 mm it may be a partially bezel less. but even a 5.5 phone size is 154x74 mm. i think the RATIO of the size should be uniqe and it can be maintained to feel best fit and compact.

  • I agree, the Xiaomi Redmi 3 series is only 139.3 long. Any 5 inch phone that is 143 long is a bit bulky for a compact phone. It is also a bit over wide too compared to more compact 5 inch phones. Too cheap and cheerful to suit me.

  • is 138x68x7 dimension is possible for 5 inch screen phone...then it be a ergonomic in hand is always preferable

  • Does it have screen flickering problems like j5 prime?

  • You're right, might as well have the side loud speaker.

  • this device is basically new body of J5 Prime

  • Lol.. moto g5 back cover with g4 camera module

  • I think you've confused the earlier J3 2017 for America, which is now known as the J3 Emerge, with the International/AT&T J3 2017. The Emerge does have a removable (and bigger) battery. FYI, the J3 2017 is slightly better than the J3 Emerge. For instance, it has Nougat, a better camera, an Exynos chipset on 14nm process (the others are SD425/430 on 28nm, so a lot less power efficient ) and more RAM, which is always good (except for slow refurb DDR RAM which cheap chinese phones are made from). However, if you are into Pokémon Go, then the Emerge has a Gyro sensor unlike the 2017. Sadly, none of them have an AMOLED display, according to their respective pages despite GSMArena saying it has on the unveiling news.

  • The real price will be 130-145 EUR depend on country.

  • You rathey get a3 2016 quad core 1.5ghz exynis 7580/7578 And dual core gpu . the 7570 has only one core The processes is better 1.5 gb ram but at a faster speed More premium features The price is less now than before Battery life is op

  • um ok ? lol they already said in the specs at the bottom theres a non removable 2400 battery its said that since they posted

  • you can watch the video of j3 2017 (unboxing) in youtube and it said that its NON-REMOVABLE BATTERY

  • J5 2015 had a 5" screen and a 2600mah battery and the thickness was 7.9mm. This has the same size display, 8.2" thickness and a smaller battery, 2400mah. I though it might be a very long lasting phone with this thickness packing a 28-2900mah battery, but nah, this is a Samsung budget phone.

  • I thought it was a removable battery then suddenly it change in non-removable battery!! what is the real specs of battery in this samsung galaxy J3 2017? I really like removable battery for samsung galaxy j3 2017. kindly tell us what is the real specs of battery of samsung galaxy j3 2017.

  • If in ₹6000 i am getting 4000mah battery+snapdragon 435+2gb ram+16gb internal ....why should i buy samsung....j3 (2017). Samsung must increase the battery at-least 4000mah most important one...

  • non removable battery? really?

  • No

  • You must decrease the price of phone and must and should specifications also be improved

  • For that price ? 220 budget smartphone? I remember when flagship was for 350...Now good value to price have only moto g series, maybe lg and xiaomi phones Never again Samsung Or Sony etc

  • i am waiting this phone it's have nice specification this budgut smartphone.& nice android vergin 7.0 very good smartphone

  • I expected for it many time Samsung Galaxy j3.

  • Betry will 3500 mah & new vversion found Price is under 8000/9000 all people patches 100 present first I

  • when power off, still received phone calls - how to avoid?

  • blue colour in j3 2017 ?

  • I still think the j3 is a better buy because the j5 priced is just unacceptable because you can get so many much much better phones for the priced.. moto 5,,,Huawei..... etc.

  • those who have any doubts about my comment can go and check gsmarena battery review of galaxy A3 2017 .. 93h endurance with 15-16h browsing and video playback .. on the same 2400 mah battery .. that is with an octa core.. just screen size is 4.7 inch vs 5 inch here , so this j3 2017 expect 90h and 14h browsing and video playback..

  • actually battery backup of this phone is going to be its major feature and usp .. even though battery is only 2400mah the processor used in it is built on 14nm node . which is very very very effecient.. expect 90h+ endurance rating and 14h web browsing gsmarena rating..

  • J5 + octa core + bigger battery + fingerprint reader (j3 probably won't have this) + dual band ac wifi (j3 might have this) + slightly bigger screen/better screen to body ratio/better design - No front flash - Non removable battery - slightly lower dpi Worth the 60 dollar difference? I think they're both overpriced btw.

  • just for octa core it's priced is unacceptable.. if the j5 would have 3gb ram than it's OK. Samsung is flooding the smartphone market again

  • Fingerprint sensor?

  • Exynos 7870 Octa vs Quad

  • NO AOD listed..No Moni huni

  • grace ux and AOD?? or not

  • I think the j3 is much better buy compared to the j5! I don't know what Samsung is thinking both have the same camera, 720p and 2gb ram.

  • Nice Phone , But The Battery Is Still Little Bit Bad , But The Price Is Very Very Bad , More Than 200€ For This Specs Is Not Good :(

  • Over 200 Euros low price?! You can get Honor 8 for that. Or 2x Redmi 4X.

  • This is real and.. this how it is suppose to be.. good phone with low price.

  • Well, it seems that Samsung with this Galaxy J3 will compete head to head with the little Xiaomi Redmi 4a. But the Redmi 4a has a definitely affordable price, but the Galaxy J3 will have a similar price? In other words, for the same specs (apart for the Nougat, mainly. That it can be fixed with a simple update) but probably much more cheaper, it would be better not to opt for the Samsung's one.

  • For Stupid people - this budget phone, very low spec.. Dont wait from j3 or a3 S8 or even S6 specifications OK??? Why you didnt write, no titan.. No saphire glass 2017..

  • This is a low budget phone. Don't know why people are complaining about low specs. 1.5GB RAM and 16GB storage is on par for this price range. Manufacturers are using low spec silicon to save cost, to provide the less expensive phone that some people want or can afford. You want higher specs, there's plenty of mid-range phones with more RAM and storage, better cameras, etc. I do agree with some here, the flagship phones are over priced for what little they provide over the mid-range phones. Mainly 'cool factor', or what's new and hot.

  • I don't understand why others wants a flagship phone specs for a cheap phone.

  • Camera 5MP in 2017 model? 1,5GB RAM? No, this can't be real.

  • phone is great but battery is lowest i want to battery minimum 4100 mah Avery Samsung phone

  • I don't know what everyone is complaining about I got this phone and I like it

  • seriously ? exynos quad with 1.5 gb ram and 5mp camera without fingerprint in cheap case for 170 in 2017 year? god :/ that cant be good ... better go for redmi 4x asus pegasus lg k10 2017 motorola g5 huawei honor 7 lite (5x) redmi pro meizu m5 or 50 devices more for triple better device in that price range ....

  • why don't pepple leave to buy this is a good one

  • I got this phone through att and it is working just fine. I'm not a power user or anything like that, but it has done everything I've asked it to do. It has 7.0 on it, works with VR and keeps me connected to everyone without breaking the bank.

  • Agreed!!!! Xiaomi!

  • The best one

  • Who still buyning Samsungs phone lol :D OnePlus 3/3T and new coming OnePlus 5 are much better than anyone Samsung phones.

  • When will this phone be available in India?....have been using Galaxy S Duos 2 since December 2013. Haven't used any other OS that has been out for the past 2 to 3 years like Kitkat, Lollipop or Marshmallow....I know that Samsung doesn't care about its lower mid range devices but I still use Samsung because it alone provides the FM recording feature that is not provided by other brands....battery on my device has been bad..the duplicate battery is working good in comparison to the original one.. I hope this device will serve me well...not a hardcore keeping my hopes high...though will have to wait or shell a few more for a SuperAmoLED device...

  • The A3 has 4.7 screen

  • Samsung Galaxy A3 (2017) will be your best choise then.

  • I want a small smart phone like 4.7 inches with non removable battery, is it possible S8 mini 4.7 inch ? I like S8 but too big

  • What is the point of the J3 (2017)? The J3 (2016) has better specs. I want a small phone e.g. 4.6", the last one was the S5 mini. I want re-moveable battery, dual SIM, with Nougat.... The J5 (2017) and J7 (2017) are too big.

  • Hmm...that's only 5MP Camera. That's a low resolution camera.

  • Guys you are complaining about low-end device J5,J7 will be surely better

  • Does it have a dedicated microSD card slot or combo?

  • 5 Mpx :D :D Low resolution.

  • But in spec it had only 1.5 Gb ram

  • For a 2017 phone, they could at least put a better camera in it. While the S4 has over double the quality when it's older than the J3 series.

  • lol who would buy this in the presence of Xiaomis?

  • i don't understand why don't they put some 3200 mah battery or even 4000. Plenty of room specially on 14nm soc and it is not expensive.

  • i stopped reading when it said it has only 5 mp camera

  • Here is the link that you might want to check out

  • AT&T have it already for $6.00 per month or $179.99 retail price. They also got a video of their own for some brief descirption of this phone.

  • it comes with 2GB Ram that a lot why do you want more the back is camera is 8MP and the from 5MP that's still pretty good for budget phone (hopefully it is a budget phone) plus it is marsh mellow what more can you ask for

  • When it will be release on page

  • samsung please add a little bit of premium design, a little more ram, pay attention on camera quality, then this phone will be a great compact phone

  • i hope it comes with 3000mAh

  • This Phone is just for Gaming not for selfie ,, and my opinion this is good for me because i'am a Gamer , i wish its will be release as soon as possible :)

  • can use jio sim in this mobile?

  • No needed sensors are added

  • this is a nince phone may be or best of this level and I wish it be release thi new coming mouth gsm

  • Today was the release date for tmobile! So far it's a great phone! The names samsung galaxy j3 prime.

  • This is a nice phone 2017 not emerge !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!?!!!!!!!?!!!!!!?­!!!!!!??????????

  • "Just so everyone know, the phone is called Galaxy J3 Emerge. Not Galaxy J3 (2017) like other samsung phone." That can't be right. The it has a 5MP camera, where as the J3 2016 has 8MP. So no way is this a follow on.

  • Just so everyone know, the phone is called Galaxy J3 Emerge. Not Galaxy J3 (2017) like other samsung phone.

  • most awaited device

  • Whats taking samsung so long with this phone?

  • Try J5 (2016) or J7(2016) both great phones,j7 is little bit bigger than j5,and has better processor,but j5 is cheaper :)

  • I am interested in this phone, but Samsung are taking their sweet time to release it. I am looking for a phone based on Nougat, with removable battery, dual sim, about 5" or less, good CPU and camera. Good pricing (as I tend to drop phones on the floor!) So far choices are Moto G5, LG K8 (2017). I don't know which other choices. However, I like the Samsung buttons, which are not on the screen, but below it.....

  • I think, we can expect the release on mid-april 2017.. Announcement may come this month, march-end

  • Anyone know when this phone is being released?

  • Is it VOLTE. ...?

  • this is good mobile

  • This is a cheap entry-level phone. Buy the flag ship. You are not entitled to anything.

  • If it will comes 5mp+2mp camera then it will be super flop phone 2017, this time is selfie lovers so minimum need 8mp+5mp camera.

  • where gyro scope sensor why samsung not upgrade a gyro sensor in j series

  • Why

  • Mybe smaller pixels but fixed camera same with S7 smaller pixels than S6 but better

  • Samsung is only a name but future it will give only old not a new

  • this mobile is not even released yet! damn, what a liar.

  • Battery is not long lasting. Only 4 hours uses. The battery drain fast. Lollipop is version. I am using it and it is a bad idea to buy this phone

  • We don't know the price yet.

  • 5mp+2mp camera?!! what is it 2017 edision phone! Galaxy j2 2016 & galaxy j3 2016 wap 8mp+5mp camera what are you thinking samsung ? So Galxy j3 2017 is downgratable camera phone. Who want to buy this phone he is mad...

  • There is no defarence whithout ram 1.5 gb to 2gb galaxy j3 2016 n galaxy j3 2017. atlist need to upgrad rear cam 13mp.

  • if this specifications remain official launch,than it will be a good budget mobile

  • It will be nice if they release this j3 (2017) before next year..

  • samsung launches it in 2017. at that time various mobiles with better specifications will be emerged. then this mobile will be useless to buy.

  • The processor is not S410, its S430. The Snapdragon 430 was announced on September 15, 2015.plz refer spec of S430

  • No one needs to hear that! LOL dont make comments on the phone when you havent tried using it yet. When it releases, buy one then tell us about your experience, that would be more reasonable!

  • But Bro it's SAMSUNG!!!!!!!!!!!

  • People, please do not compare it with 2016 model, because it makes no sense. The only fair comparison can be made between this new phone and other companies' new releases at the same price range, because it is obvious that releases from every company are getting better at release date price point.

  • Once again another similar phone release. Design has not changed for ages, from the way it looks in this photo, it reminds good old S4, which is not good anymore today. I liked S4 back in the day, but that design is too old now and it is relatively boring and ugly. Samsung should really for once dare to change their idea of button alignment in front of device (or just put them out). Camera has unreasonably low resolution. Performance might be slightly better, but still weak, it will not significantly change user experience, but finally no more S410. The amount of RAM seams reasonably good. Resolution is reasonable for the chip, amoled is a big plus, although they tend to save up on screen protection in J series phones. Overall there is no way that I would consider buying this or recomend anyone to buy this phone, it is repugnant, nothing special in performance, has seriously outdated design. Much much better options out there, for example companies like xiaomi or huawei are making better releases by far, i hope people will soon finally understand that.

  • You guys forgot to say like everything from Samsung even a J2 comes with exploding battery so its a very handy device for kiling

  • Huge upgrade over the 16 model where it still had the A7 chipset.Nice to see a good device.

  • Decisions like this are to meet bloated cost reduction strategies, in this case it's selling a phone with the worse version of an older OS. After Lollipop 5.0 debuted OEM's were still releasing Kit Kat 4.4.2 devices such as on TracFone or Straight Talk, when they were aware of the "Man in the Middle" exploit was fixed in Kit Kat 4.4.4 I'd take the weakest version of Marshmallow than the worst possible Lollipop build (5.0 instead of 5.1.1) any time. Just don't download any obscure dutch zoo porn and you'll be alright.

  • Why oems don't prefer to work on latest OS instead of that they release new phones with older operating system? They need to learn.

  • Sd 430 for other markets.... In india it will be exyons or spectrum chipset.....

  • because its th most widely used connector,us c isnt evn on 15% of devices being used out there

  • the chipset is very good for this 720p device... the other specs are also lokks pretty well as a budget phone.... hope it will be good.

  • It is a lot more high end than j5 prime

  • Problem is OS Android 6 only.. This phone will be avaivable late Q1 2017 and Android 7 nougat will be everywhere by then.

  • If it cost no more than 150 euro with taxes , then it will be great phone. Best for gaming.

  • Compass is more likely than not, to be absent on a Samsung low to mid end device. Even the C-series lacks the Gyro sensor.

  • Why Samsung still sports the old microusb connector?

  • Great Phone 5'' Super Amoled display,superb phone

  • Samsung is doing better next year!

  • great!! J3 with a proper chipset.

  • For the selling price it's 99% good. It lack's "compass" sensor, for pedestrian navigation
